Sorry I don't get the saturated looking "way better" at all, I think it's terrible, colors look artificial and practically neon! I love the phone and use it in boosted, which actually doesn't look much different than natural.

Had it was so disappointed by the mediocre screen it went back. Surprising that reviewers on YouTube (Google) are now saying this is the best smart phone despite it having a weak screen and the only thing exceptional is the camera (which I never found exceptional) just makes me super suspicious tbh! 😬
André Mariano (13 days ago)
the fact that it costs 2.5 s8 here was the only reason why I didnt bought it.

I have been an iPhone and Apple user for years and thought I give the pixel to a try. I am very happy with it. I can see big things coming from Google which is exciting

25% through life cycle after 2 months lol. Not even apple releases phones that quickly
obada ghabra (14 days ago)
I actually think the saturated mode looks like crap. I much prefer boosted. By the way I think the phone looks great, and I don't care about wireless charging. Does not seem at all practical to me at the moment. Maybe it will become so in future. I've owned the Pixel 2XL for a month, and I have zero complaints.

Coming from an iPhone.. I really like my Pixel 2xl
Victor Martinez (16 days ago)
Dude your nit picking things YOU don't like. The phone is a boss. It's got its own looks that stand out, 2 front facing speakers, and a sick camera! If the bezels were any smaller my hands will keep touching the screen.

Not really an interesting review, watched for a minute until I realized the background on the phone was blue, the shirt was blue, then she quickly went around the edge of the phone. Even Shills would be salty at this. Edit: The OPO ram experience? It's a crowded market in China when it comes to stealing data, they'll find away to steal more from RAM when possible, stay tuned for that video

Man, I have found the XL to have worse screen quality than the regular size. I hear crackling and popping with the speakers just after a few days with the phone. And when I record audio, same thing. It clips out. This thing is just too big to hold as well. I'm thinking the smaller phone is a much better package and a much better build.
Shibby (23 days ago)
The LG screen is grainy. It looks like paper when you're on a white background, where the regular size does not. The smaller phone had a better screen and better colors. Saturated on the XL looks weird. I disagree. Saturated does NOT make it look better or more like the regular size.

I think the screen thing was blown out of proportion. I just received my xl and it's great because I never vide my screen. At such odd angles no matter how hard I try.

It's a dope phone, but saying the screen is not that bad just doesn't negate the fact that it's the worst display compared to the rest of the popular flagships that came out last year. That's just the damn truth. Not even knocking the Pixel 2. But after seeing that display sitting right next to the note 8 and the iPhone X, the Pixel 2 XL just doesn't have it. The color restriction really concerns me. I was contemplating on buying this phone and then after seeing how restricted the colors are even the option of turning on vivid colors in the settings, it makes me realize that no matter what I do to my photos, they will always look different to everybody else. So I'll never know if my pictures are truly getting warmer and I make them warmer. You'd think the picture has the appropriate brightness and then BOOM! you see your picture on a note 8 and you're like "Ugh!!! Why is it blown out!?" you wouldn't know that unless you look at the picture on other devices. Even the computer. It's just a shame. For a phone to have LITERALLY the best camera on the market, it doesn't make sense that the display can't see 100% what the camera can do. I truly want that phone, but because it has that problem, I have no choice but to go for the Note 8. Smh.

I'd buy it if it wasn't for that damn price. 1300 in Australia, no thanks. Double the price of a OnePlus 5t, yea obviously the pixel xl 2 has a better camera but is it worth double the price? Debatable.

Turning on SRGB was the first thing i did on my nexus 6p... It should just ask you which one you prefer when you set up the phone...

I am not at all bothered by the blue shift, but what has annoyed me in this phone is the black color trailing in photos while I scroll through facebook, Instagram etc.

2 year warranty. Anyone else name a phone maker who offers that?
Emad Ahmed (1 month ago)
I really love the Pixel 2 XL, but it's still not that perfect phone I'd want to have right away. I'd prefer to hold back on this and instead wait for the Pixel 3 XL, hoping that Google refines it to near perfection where it currently falls short. That'll probably be the phone for me, hopefully Google doesn't disappoint.
Emad Ahmed (1 month ago)
Why do people talk about the camera so much more than the software? Because the software is really the best thing about this phone.

I came from owning a Samsung Galaxy S8+ and I don't have a single complaint about the Pixel 2 XL. From the quick and smooth stock Android to the amazing cameras and software, to everything else in between, it's been nothing but a pleasure to work with. I've had 2 micro SD cards (from Samsung and from SanDisk) fail on my and cause me to lose THOUSANDS of photos when I had my Galaxy S7 Edge Plus and S8+. So I started utilizing Google Photos even back then as a backup solution. Now, my photos get saved directly to Google Photos so it's just stupid nice to have it as my default photo storage solution and never have to worry about running out of space.
Jordan Vasquez (1 month ago)
I prefer the look and built of the Pixel 2 XL over the iPhone X. The notch is hideous and the huge camera bump at the back are huge turn offs for me.

Ken supernor (1 month ago)
Had Galaxy S8+ and switch to Pixel 2 XL about 2 months ago... completely impressed. 2 XL blows the s8+ away for me.. camera is phenomenal, screen is very good, stock Android OMG is so so good (so clean, so smooth, and quick), build quality is top notch, Love the stereo front facing speakers! Just a great package...👍👍 Oh and the battery rocks. Get a day with pretty heavy use no problem. Only thing I miss is wireless charging....

I really wonder why people are buying other phones than google branded phones. I absolutely hate the bloatware in samsung, the LG phones are fugly and their launcher are so lame.... And the rest of the manufacturers out there are irrelevant.

Fairy Liquid (1 month ago)
I have both versions of the Pixel 2 and without a doubt the smaller one is better value for money. (Despite the shit old design). The 2XL screen looks like printed paper with that grainy/fuzzy effect on light backgrounds and although the blue shift fiasco may have been overblown, you can't deny that it is still present at the slightest tilt.
Ahron Darnell (1 month ago)
You are wrong about it just being srgb the blue shift is totally different, new screens work better its just the early models, do your research before doing a video please

Curious....what was the image on the Pixel 2 xl??? Thanks in advance
Joseph Wilber (2 months ago)
I have the pixel 2 xl and absolutely love it. With the screen in the saturated mode I believe the screen looks very good and the colors definitely pop. Unless you were watching Samsung S8 next to the pixel XL 2 you would never know there was a problem with the screen, which in my opinion there isn't. For me it's the whole package, the camera, the dual front facing speakers sound amazing, and the butter smooth performance of this device are unmatched by any other device I'm my opinion. I came from a S7 to go to the XL 2, and it's been a better all around Android experience every since!!! Love this phone!!!

Really want the 2 and 2XL to be a success so Google continue with future generations. Also hope they offer a dual SIM option in September 18.
Taylor Nguyen (2 months ago)
listen to the reviewer, this phone is created that you have to USE to actually appreciate it. And trust me, it delivers. Im using the 2 XL right now and i gotta say, holy fucking moly this is a good ass phone Software: on point Camera: fucking on point Battery: 6+ hours of medium to heavy use(trust me, i use my phone A LOT, and this thing cannot die on me, and i love it) Screen: dont let people spoil you with the blue tint issue. Really not a problem for me AT ALL. And honestly, im not that person where i treasure my money enough to bring the phone in the dark room just to look for a fucking proof on burn-in and blue tint 4 of those alone makes me want to keep this phone and avoid Samsungs as far as i can And if you really gonna argue with me about how 5T or v30 is a much better phone with less price, gtfo please, thank you

I have the Galaxy S7 and when this whole screen thing about the Pixel 1XL first came out I went into the display settings and you have a choice of 4 display options, I switched it to Basic, which is the closest to being accurate. And Yes at first you are like this is completely dull and lifeless. I was only going to do a week with it and see how it would be. It's been a couple of months now and I can't go back to the other settings. Your photo's on the phone look better everything is just more accurate.
