It sucks. sad to say people are buying these phone with their hard earned money. Not a problem to those rich people.
Are there any comparison between Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL display color? They both want to provide accurate color, but one is using Samsung AMOLED and the other is using LG pOLED, so are they showing the same color? If not, which one more accuracy? Does this mean one of them make Google Hardware's disappointed?
Sony Fanboy Bitches, 31 Oct 2017Yeah. They put stereo speakers there for us to hear a mono audio recording lol.That is very well said. lol.
Only thing wrong with this phone is no expandable storage, headphone jack and more color options! I figure it's LGs strategy to get people to buy the V30 but really expandable storage is the only thing killing it for me!
Hello, thanks for the very thorough review!
Question, why wasn't camera speed mentioned or compared?

The same reason this phone wont sell either

Why isn't the HTC U11 included in the recommended alternative devices?
IMO it is the only device that can challenge the Pixel 2 XL in every spec, EXCEPT the camera & stock OS. However the screen, dual speakers (personally prefer it, because you can still have the fingerprint sensor in the front), zoom recording, edge sense, headphones, expandable storage & excellent build quality... HTC U11 beats Pixel there.
HTC is underrated and deserves more credit. Both Apple & Google takes inspiration/cues from them.
s4f786, 31 Oct 2017What is it with companies charging high prices and can't even put stereo audio in video record... moreBecause there are people who are willing to pay. You see, smartphones these days give their makers huge, unprecedented profit. Is there really a phone that deserves over 700$? IMO, no. The Note8, the iPhone X, the Pixel 2XL, all doesn't deserve their prices. You can come and tell me about R&D and the build materials or the OLED displays or anything, but unfortunately, it still doesn't explain the high cost. These phones doesn't cost 600 or 700$ to make. They barely cost over 300 or 400$ to make.
Do we see a huge and noticable improvements each year? No. Do they perform 60% better than last year? No. Are the cameras 10 times better than last year? No. They simply don't deserve their cost. But again, there are people who are willing to pay.
Anonymous, 31 Oct 2017Default mode is almost 8000k The "default" is what Google decide it is. LG sends a display that is not calibrated so Google can do it the way it likes. Look at the V30's display, people only complain about the blue shift, but not dull colors. The V30 uses the same display as the pixel 2 XL which means the it's Google's fault, not LG's.

Overpriced , overhyped , fugly as hell, crap Display. So why buy it ? oh ye you will get android 9 or 10 on it ... that will be full of bugs like all previous models. Wifi battery drain on the 6P, android system battery droin on the 6P for example.
Ok, so let me get this straight... this is the greatest purest Android phone which the fans stand by:
1.stock software with NO customisation/bloat/fluff/features/gimmicks AT ALL
3.no wireless charging
4.no headphone jack
5.no expandable storage
6.no removable/replaceable battery
7.sub par/low quality screen
Wait isn't this an iPhone?
As for me, camera is not that remarcable as it is advertised. Last year's Pixel did worser than majority of contenders in LL photos (in terms of sharpness, the colours were great though). And this year's pixel is not quite there in BL conditions, at least compared to LG's V30 or G6. Though I do like the balance between noise and details pixel delivers, the photo comparison tool shows huge advantage of the V30 and Note 8 in terms of noise and keeping details up. Yeah, cam is great. But with all the contenders being stronger this year, google seems like the one company which didn't do much improvemt over the year in terms of LL photography
