I would like to see more screen real-estate on a smaller bodied phone. Maximize screen, minimize bulk! Not a fan of a gigantic phone taking up my whole friggin' pocket. I'm rocking the 6 and won't be ponying up any dough until these phone makers put their best foot forward. This is like Dodge launching the Demon without AWD, it's just burning rubber until the better sh*t comes out.
Geez. Think of the amount of technology you (and we ) have in our hands with a phone like this...and you're complaining about the size of the side bezels?! seriously?
If that's a genuine complaint, then you must be living a bougie life.
The Pixel 2 is awesome .
I really like it I was gonna buy a iPhone 6s but Pixel is better than that . I phone barely has enough storage but this has unlimited storage incredible . But the no headphone jack killed it .
I own the Pixel 2 - I find Google Assistant frustrating - for instance I've set my default notification time to 1 hour before on both my computer and phone in my calendar app, but it sets to 15 minutes before if I use Assistant to create a calendar event. I have tried contacting Google but they say they don't support the calendar app and point me to a forum that then points me to links that I have already looked at. 5 years I've tried to find a solution - I've just come to the conclusion it's a bug they just don't know how to fix. I have the new Pixel 2 and it's still a problem. Plus Google - I'm in the UK - 30 and 60 FPS creates flickering video indoors.
I think it’s amazing that Marques is following his passion in technology and I was just sitting here and saw his name on the google pixel 2 commercial with a quote and his name. That’s incredible! Keep doing what you’re doing man we’re all proud of you!
Somebody explain to me the benefits of wireless charging.
There are no benefits. If you want to hold your phone while charging you cannot. Removing it from charging and then placing it back will only ruin your battery faster. With a cord how can keep charging and hold the phone at the same time.
It's not hard to plug in a charger into a wall outlet or to your phone. A charging stand for wireless charging gets in the way. Even when not in use I think it's still draining power as long as it's plugged in to the wall.
Even at the Verizon store or at att store no one had anything to say to prove me wrong.
Removing the headphone jack is a cheap ass way to save themselves money whole selling phones for the same price with one less feature.
You can argue that that's the benefit of wireless charging because you can use wired headphones and be charging at the same time. BUT with a headphone jack you can do both while holding your phone or moving around with it depending how long your charging wire is.
In any case there are cordless headphones so that benefit is nothing. Wireless charging only makes your charger bigger. Only real benefit is that you don't have to plug a little piece to your phone, which is no challenge or advantage. Still a big charging stand that keeps sapping power from the wall the whole time. And if you say unplugging it is easy, then a regular charger being plugged to your phone isn't any different.
It's funny, literally almost EVERYONE hates the fact that most new phones have no headphone jack except none of these companies give a fuck lmao there is literally no reason to kill it off i dont get it
Does every android device lag over time or is it just Samsung devices that do that? I am a iOS user and I want to switch to android but got put off due to the os bogging down over time when iOS doesn’t. At least for me anyways. My last android device I had was a s5 which I encountered multiple issues with including my phone not alerting me of incoming phone calls, crashing of apps etc. I regularly cleaned out the junk files but still was laggy.
If they can think they can force us to use phones costing more without a headphone jack, boycott such phones and make them follow our expectations and design phones based on the feedback (if they really care about their customers).
still can't beat the design and aesthetics of Nexus 5.
Pixel 2 is an HTC that's known for hardware issues. HTC will be great for a month until they launch the 1st update. The pixel 2 xl is a lg product that's known for software issues. So yes please over spend for something they put the pixel name on. So buy a Samsung or apple and be happy. So on that bombshell I'm out
I find it hilarious watching the Pixel 2 XL "first impressions" videos now and NO ONE complains about the screen having any issues. In fact, everyone says the display is great and no one mentions the unsaturated colors. But after someone goes out of their way to find the imperfections, its now a terrible display with tons of issues. Just an interesting thought I had.
I mean unless your telling me that the screen becomes "less saturated" and "more blue" overtime then I don't understand how these things were gone unnoticed in the first impressions videos. These problems should stick out immediately if they are really as bad as they say they are. I mean from the videos I watched, literally not a single person complained about these things in their initial videos over the Pixel 2 XL. Again, not to say there isn't any problems with the phone's display, BUT I do think it goes to show you that the problems are being exaggerated.
Yes that is part of it, though the way people are complaining about things, you would have thought that they would have noticed at least some of the issues in their first impressions. The blue tint for an example: Everyone has said how noticeable the tint is on slight angles. Well if it was THAT noticeable then don't you think someone would have said something about it in their first impressions? For how unsaturated the display supposedly is, wouldn't the muted colors be one of the very first things someone would notice? Ever thought of that? Yes I agree that spending more time with the device make these issues more apparent, but I'm just trying to point out the fact that some people have gone out of their way to find issues with the phone, but I am not saying that there isn't any either. The phone obviously has its flaws. I don't know and maybe its just me but, if a phone had a screen that was highly unsaturated and looked muted, I would think thats something someone would point out right away.
