My opinion is that Google just tries to showcase where it wants for the Android phones to go, set a general direction and let the manufacturers decide on customization.
Google moneys come in the vast majority from publicity (adwords I think is called) and usage of their services and not from selling devices.

I think I will re-consider it and sleep on it :) That said, it's more than likely I'll swap my current LG G6 for the XL in the very near future. I'll wait a couple months and see what the others come up with though.
AnonD-696746, 09 Jan 2018nexus and pixel never had SD card btw so they cannot return to having one ;) You still don't get the message. The Pixel is the most crippled android phone that doesn't sell because Google is stubborn giving it the usual features found in almost all android phones - sd card, true dual sim, headphone jack at the very least. And it costs a lot more than other flagships WITH MUCH LESS to OFFER and nothing special or exclusive about its version of vanilla Android.
Anonymous, 06 Jan 2018The Pixel 2 XL is the most iphone-like android phone. Iphone-like not because it is the only ... moreWait a second you seem to like contradictions.
Battery life on the pixel 2 xl is on par with S8+ and note 8 ( based on GSM arena test wich are not biased ) its a tad worst than V30 but much better than iphone X and better than iphone 8 plus. stop smoking its bad for you. ( beside iphone they all have gigabyte internet lol )
most phone have those new aspect ratio now even mid ranger are getting it so good luck with cocacola bottle lol.
So i recommend you take a chill pill :)
Anonymous, 06 Jan 2018Still the best phone with best screen (IPS) .False.
the IPS screen on the essential PH-1 has better colors reproduction and contrast than iphone 8 but a tad less brightness.
Got to love apple fanboy..
Trump Fan 1980, 05 Jan 2018 I think it's ironic that LG phones embrace 3.5 mm headphone jacks, but when then desinged the... moreMaybe because its was google that chosen to stay with no 3.5 mm jack ;)
.alpha, 05 Jan 2018-Check your transferred text messages. Only history newer than January 2015 was transferred. O... more1- i had client transfert 100% of all text messages they had in the pixel to the pixel 2 ( more than 5 years of text )
2- iphone X screen is better that i agree but iphone 8 plus and older iphone screen look like crap compared to the pixel 2 xl sorry.
3- you can use an app to replace built in night mode many pretty good one around that you can easily make it look the way you want. this is not a limited iphone.
4- gaming you are so full of crap never had a game go under 60 fps with any of the current android flagship running SD 835. Also even compared to iphone X its has more pixel to push as well and some game look better on iphone others like World of tank blitz look way better on android flagship.
5- Camera is not too cold at all its the most colors accurate camera ever put on a smartphone but as you are using a too warm iphone camera its might seem this way to you.

How is the performance and the quali... morenothing to complain i used a tripod to take pictures of street ect and the light effect from moving car ( using lower speed shutter ) was simply out of this world and fully supported HDR+ so its was a win win situation.
I highly recommend it.

2. Audio is crippled : No headphone j... moreYou are really serious? Yes, the screen may have some minor issues(not like many have mentioned), but overall, it is better phone. Better audio? I did believe iPhone did not have so good audio in the recordings. Camera? You really can't compare. Pixel wins all the way. Software? That depends on your preferences. You get what you get in iPhone and that is all. Android you can customise.
Overall, I would not go for any of those phones as they are overprized. I like both, but one is really limited, the other is overprized for what it is. If I would have to choose, Pixel all the way...
Anonymous, 08 Jan 2018LOL. You are unhappy because there is no removable battery or a headphone jack?! The world ... moreYou don't get it. The pixel wants to be the iphone of the Android world but it fails miserably in sheer features comparison to other android flagships. It is one of the most expensive but it is the most crippled android phone bar none. I'm not talking only of the lack of headphone jack and removable battery. It also doesn't have true dual sim functionality and sd card support which are almost universal/basic features in android phones. The pixel wants to be different by being the most crippled yet the most expensive android phone. Just like Apple's iphone really. But the iphone has got the goods because it is the only one that can deliver ios and the appstore experience/ecosystem. Exclusive. Nothing quite like it. As for Google's pixel? You can get the same premium android feel and the ubiquitous playstore from phones costing half to one third the pixel is selling. Result? Flop again and again. Despite repeated flops, Google somehow hopes it will be different next time. That people will move on and stop using sd cards, stop using dual sims, stop using wired headphone connections, etc. That is insanity. Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results everytime.
"And yes, the Pixel 2 and the iPhone X Are the best phones on the market now."
The best phones on the globe now are the S8, S8+ and the Note 8.
They are light years ahead of everybody else.

Everybody keeps saying that the blue shift is not only on the 2 XL but also the other OLED phones, simply no, the panels that LG makes are pretty terible, IÂ’ve used several Galaxy and even the smaller Pixel 2 which have OLED panel made by Samsung and none of which I notice the blue shift that reviewers said Â“characteristics of OLED panelÂ”and I notice it as soon as I pick it up at Verizon store which is Bs tbh burn in, poor calibration, blue shift none of it I have trouble with SAMSUNG made displays, except for burn that I see in some retail Galaxies because it has been running the the same clip over and over again, other than that no problems. So at $850 you expect Google to deliver best of the best but the display truly disappointing
