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.
Sure....It's a great phone...If it was $200-$300 cheaper. And even then it would only be for a select crowd considering the mid rangers and flagship killers you can get at that price point. And the cheap compromises the pixel 2 made.
This is the most over priced Android phone out there. The only Android device more over priced is the Sony projector.
When you consider the quality choices, lowered specs, compromises, excessive price hikes, and severe denial and defense from all the fanboys....
Sadly this is the Google iPhone. iPhone of Android.
Regardless of which you prefer between the 2 XL or the Note8 for instance.
Google has zero reason or right to charge almost the same as the Note8. Again not speaking on which one you want or how you feel about Touchwiz or stock...Even though speed tests put the Note8 neck and neck and even ahead sometimes....
The issue is the cost into everything specs, software, development, and accessories is all more with the Note8. Display, ram, features, digitizer, pen, headset jack, expandable storage, free included $100 headphones that will sound much better than the wireless options that would cost you over $100 more, wireless charging.
Talk about gimmicks all you want but that's subjective and irrelevant. The point is nothing about the pixel justifies this outrageous price.
Sony Fanboy Bitches, 31 Oct 2017And that folks, is why I still stand myself correct, that OLED ISN'T THE FUTURE, and IS NOT BE... moreWell you knowledge on screens is no very good. Or biased to say the least. And ill informed.
First of all you are now talking about a comparison of many 3K phones. Not 2k. And when you said 2K you were talking about 2.5K which is Quad HD. 2k is a resolution that is just a tiny hair over 1080p.
And what a long exaggerated rant just to falsely claim OLED can't be the future because issues some have with display quality or the possibility of burn in.
Yes the differences are more than just a little. The advantages are across the board.
Yes Oled can burn in. But doesn't mean it will. Out of 15 plus phones from 2009 I have seen slight burn in on one. And it's not the 2009 one either.
It happens. But is not a guarantee.
And that is completely bias one sided claims that tries to paint the picture as if LCD panels dont get image retention. Or have issues that can happen only to LCD and not oled like backlight related issues.
That right there alone debunks everything you said. Good day

Your comment didnt even make sense. Obviously stock android still has more customizing and features. That wasnt the point. And it didnt change what they said.
Its everything the 2xl takes away, compromises, faults, and dramatically over charges... And all of you are blindly defending strongly like a religion.
