Anonymous, 23 Nov 2017Except it's not slow. You are just full of bias and hate.
I'm full of charts and knowledge. SD 835 losing to ALL flagship SoC of 2017, one particular even kills it with posting twice the single core score:
Heck it hardly wins over last year's (exynos 8890):
It's one of the most underwhelming releases in the history of SoCs. Single Core performance literally remained constant and GPU performance hardly improved. A rare moneygrab, a rare in being so f'n obvious and people still falling for it.
"Google has went with the industry standard for premium smartphones of 2017"
SD 835 and 4GB is not the industry standard.
I mean SD 835 is slow, but there's nothing you can do about it, sadly it's a monopoly.
But for RAM you *can* do something and most did. Most are having at least 6GB of ram this year around.
The first thing that becomes obsolete on a phone (after the battery) is the RAM amount. With the continuous onslaught of RAM hungry apps and OS revisions, you're not future proof using such a low amount. In fact you it's not even enough for now even if you want a zippy experience.
It's been shown time and again that RAM is the most important thing if you want a zippy phone (no reloads). Apparently Apple , Google and Samsung never listen (the most RAM averse companies are interestingly enough the most expensive too), ending up giving the slowest everyday experience (plenty of reloads). Dumb move for a $1000 phone, you should have flagship specs at that price...

And no it is not the best phone. Its decent. But its the most over priced and not the best.

Hello, Guys screen issus is over hyped by media for some reason. I went to store and it looked good. In terms of after sales support, google support is damn good. Who will accept refund for pixel xl after using it for almost one year for a simple hardware issue(i think it is not even an issue, they refunded because i was not satisfied with earlier hardware fix). They did help in getting the entire refund. I really loved the support. I honestly dont care bout wireless charging because 7hrs charging in 15min is more than enough for me. Start checking user reviews after use, you will understand the worth of picel 2 xl. I have pre-ordered mine. I cant wait to get my hands on it.
Anonymous, 06 Nov 2017It has NFC. That's what Android pay uses.My bad! Still disappointed with the screen, tho.

The 2Xl is severely over priced making it the iPhone of Android.
The phone is super fast and snappy in practical use
I never notice the blue tint unless I purposely tilt the phone to look for it
My battery life is crazy good
Let's just say this camera is pretty damn good as well
Best phone I've owned
SpiritWolf, 01 Nov 2017But not in picture quality. Autofocus, yes. Low light... Well, i have some pretty neat photos,... moreResolution and quality are not the same thing. Again it's only main advantage is in resolution. Not quality, not colors, no focus, not dynamic range...Though it has better than average, yada yada.
So therefore I would still take the 808 or 1020 over it for resolution.
Really liking the Pixel 2 XL, but it is unfortunate that it does not have NFC.
Plus the screen issues sound annoying.
Anonymous, 01 Nov 2017That high resolution is the only big advantage the 950 has. It's not a god among camera phones... moreBut not in picture quality. Autofocus, yes. Low light... Well, i have some pretty neat photos, can compare to any nowadays flagship. Video... I don't give rats ass about video.

But the the bezels. Just just ridiculous. Only the galaxies have actual nearly non existent side bezels and thats because of the curved edges.
