If only Google have designed it better.. The back, for me, actually looks cool but not as ellegant as the other competitors.

Your hands are so huge, 6 inch phones look so small it's so deceiving

at the point where he talks about the dark background that's what i really need cause i have bad sight and sensitive to light soo a bright white screen sucks for me so if a smartphone would have a dark mode or something would be so nice i feell like that should already be a thing

I like how you explain about the SRGB colours and relate it to your experience on editing images with the phone. Loving your videos the more I watch them! :D

The pixel two XL looks so nice but the normal Pixel two has ginormous bezels.

I love my google pixel 2 xl. Got every defensive mechanism available to keep it safe.
Andrew Burley (3 days ago)
They do come with headphone jacks for those of you who still want to where your shity beats although personally id suggest upgrading to some wireless bose or samsung in earbuds. Got mine a week ago used it against an iphone an x and my god its so much better also has a 4k camera and sound quality is pretty much out of this world as well for a smartphone. Easily the best smartphone to date. Hell apple couldn't beat it even if they made an Iphone X + wich know doubt they will.........

Honestly idk if it's on your end or on mine. But I can't tell the difference between the P3 colors vs sRGB on the pictures.

Currently on Iphone 8 but am definitely considering trying out the pixel, it has a really clean and smooth os which reminds me of ios. If next years pixel xl is not plagued with hardware issues I may try it.

For me picture in picture works with videos in chrome but not YouTube. Do you need YouTube red for it to work? I'm using a OnePlus 3 on Android 8.0

Hey. I got a new phone and I want to use it without a back cover. However, I am concerned about getting scratches on the camera lens, since it protrudes a little. Suggestions anyone?

Love the reviews man but this phone went from oooh to meh the moment you mentioned no headphone jack. I understand companies would want buyers to buy their wireless exclusive stuff or so but they just shouldn't force nor make it a necessity by totally removing a basic function a phone has to have.

There a way to use headphones with this camera?
shivanie10 (8 days ago)
I found that you are not really honest. I mean objective. When i look at pixel 2 review with sam s9. It looks a little bias. Short xample sam s9 also has spotify colours. And did you know u can unlock sam s9+ without touching powerbutton first and then fingerprint. Thats the fastet way to go. And yes i use the sam s9plus. But i do not have a youtube channel with 6m followers. I thought that you where objective but you cannot be that 100%

so they are changing people premium price for a phone which doesn't have any exclusives but a good camera which is worse than the s9 camera and faster updates etc that phone is the most expensive piece of shit.

Pixel handsets are sooooo ugly No if ands or but I would never troll around with that ugly phone It looks like they couldn’t make up their mind what material to use and it looks so cheap What ever happened to google glass? Oh yeah now I remember They need to stick with their software and leave the hardware to Samsung Just saying

Pixel 2 XL Pros: Great rear camera Great Front camera Large Screen Good finger Scanner Placement Stock Android Dual Stereo Front Facing Speakers Easy use of google assistant Ip67 water resistance Amoled Display Android 8.0 oreo Small Bessels High Resolution Screen Cons: No headphone jack (Rip Jack) Blue Shift Dull Colors More Common Burn-in No Wireless Charging A glass metal plastic hybrid back (which feels mostly like plastic and very cheap due to it being on the outside of the metal and where you usually put your hand) Bessels larger than most other besseless phones Ip67 water resistance only compared to other phones with ip68 No micro sd expansion slot Its an Lg oled panel not a Samsung which at the time Samsung has the better amoled technology Overall I'd say its probably got one of the best cameras and speakers for a phone. The stock android helps it always stay up to date. It fingerprint scanner isn't in some weird spot. Like many other phones it's got small bessels and a high resplution screen, However for social media, photos, and video the phones Lg amoled panel is not that great with higher chances of burn in and the blue light shift. Googles choice of RGB also makes the colors duller. And the lack of the headphone jack and micro sd expansion is always annoying. Plus it's only ip67 while other phones are ip68 which still have a headphone jack and micro sd expansion (and a pen for the note 8). No wireless charging isn't a deal breaker, but the plastic coating over metal makes the phone feel cheaper. It would be assumed in the hands that it was a plastic and glass back. And because of its speakers there are many phones with better screen to body ratios. It's a good phone but as someone who rarely touches the camera and usually is reading comics online or on youtube, this phones poor screen problems and lack of a headphone jack make it not a phone I would use as my daily driver.

No headphone jack? Instant ditch, sorry.
Johnold13 (16 days ago)
2 things they needed badly but 4 things to he worked on for the pixel 3. Put the headphone jack back in. Put the expandable memory card slot back in. Work on getting IP68 & Put a better amoled QHD screen. Then the pixel 3 will be unstoppable.
Matthew Hanson (16 days ago)
How are you able to reach 5hours on screen time for battery usage? My battery on my pixel XL 2 is great, it does a 9am-6pm work day no problem.. but i get about 3 hours on screen time maybe 4? and then my phone will need to be charged. Would love some tips or something to help get more screen time out of this great phone!

Luckily the lack of a headphone jack isn't a big deal for me. I prefer to go wireless anyway. I think I may actually purchase this phone. Great review!

No headphone jack is the reason I will keep getting samsung. These companies are losing customers by removing the jack.
Celina Crawshaw (8 days ago)
User Name realistically you are staying in the past by grasping to the headphone jack. They aren’t losing customers, look at the amount of people who own any of the iPhones back to the 7.
Jaysann22 (19 days ago)
No headphone jack, no included headphones, gimmicky squeeze feature, and MASSIVELY overpriced for it's hardware. Google pulled an classic Apple-like dick move with this device.

Regarding the screen issues, don't be too envious of Samsung's displays. I JUST got off the phone with Verizon Tech Coach because I had to order a warranty replacement for my S8 Plus due to screen burn, and it's pretty egregious. There's a ghost image of basically my entire Google keyboard as well as the top status bar and the dock with the multiscreen, home, and back buttons.

Kid Android (20 days ago)
Just got myself a Pixel 2 XL and the first one I had to exchange becsuse the bottom speaker sounded like it was loose or something it just reverberated really badly at anything past half volume. Got my replacement and wow the sound is great and the rest of the phone is as well. I was sick of my Note 8 camera and taking shots that were constantly out of focus and the Pixel 2 XL camera has had none of that issue, this camera is amaze balls! My first phone was manufactured in October of last year and my new one just 3 weeks ago (first week of March 2018) so I was curious about the displays and the new screen doesn't have the blue shift barely at all which is great but the first display actually was brighter and the whites looked a little crisper to my eye. I actually like the old display better so it sucks that first phone had an issue with the speaker but I'd rather have a slightly dimmer display than not be able to turn my volume past half without hearing a major reverberation from the bottom speaker.
