How did you add top and bottom bezels on your pixel 2 xl? Is it software? :D

I just got my pixle 2 yesterday, I love it

I wish I could rearrange the navigation bar back button and the recently used apps button. Also being able to change system font would be a plus.

Why are you saying "Pixel 2 Excel"? It's "XL"
Mike Yu (6 days ago)
jamiesh American English. Some pronunciations tend to be slurred. Similarly, "should have", "must have", etc. Tend to sound like "should of" and "must of" when pronounced by an American.

Is there anyway to customize the phone so the volume buttons or power button can immediately silence a notification/ringtone? In order for me to do so, I always have to unlock the phone and then open the app(text message/whatsapp/phone call).
Ocean Pacific (14 days ago)
Devin M. Squeeze it and it shuts off those notification

I've been contemplating the Pixel 2 XL, after this video I am placing my order. I have a Note 8 and a iPhone X. The Note 8 screen cracked and its $650 to replace the screen where I live, so I bought the iPhone X. But that phone as cool as it may be just lacks 80% of the things I do on a regular basis. I can't use apple pay anywhere (the store said it works at Coach and Starbucks, I don't go to either of those places) my Samsung watch works for pay every single place I have ever gone if if they use 10 year old tech, as it sends out a magnetic field. I can't track sleep with the apple watch, the phone cant pay anywhere except cvs, the screen is really small, smaller than the 5.5 iPhone 8 plus and I like larger screens. Apps look better on Android, use to be the other way around, not anymore. I cant even control my house or even the temp in my house from the apple phone, I can do that with voice on google. I would get the Note 8 again, but if I'm going to spend $650 on a new screen I figure just buy a new Google phone as my Note 8 as much as I love it never updates. Thanks for your video, you made my life easier :)

Spot on with the ending. I switched from a 2XL to a 2 and it's perfect.
DJ SPY (27 days ago)
Accidentally triggering the double tap action... HA! 99% of the time you have to almost punch your phone with all your might to get it to turn on. That's I've thing I give to Apple. I pick up my iPhone X and boom, the display turns on. Tap the screen, it turns on without any lag.
Gurudrew (28 days ago)
Thanks, didn't know about the System UI Tuner. I just added seconds to my clock.

Useless video, everyone knows this shit and people that don't, have no clue how to use YouTube so you probably need a separate article on that
Shaun (30 days ago)
I do like the Pixel 2, it is a good phone but I settled on a OnePlus 5T and love it. I just cant see spending a thousand dollars on a phone thats outdated in a matter of a couple of months. Even OnePlus is guilty of this with the 5.
Shaun (29 days ago)
I can agree with that! I did have to "settle" on my carrier. I had to go with Straight-talk but it's working out good so far, so I'm pretty happy. I'm guessing that CDMA licensing must be expensive?
Matthew Brown (30 days ago)
be nice if Oneplus did financing and work with Verizon.
HarryUnchained (30 days ago)
I would love to get the 5T but they're selling that phone here for $600 (64gb model) while Note 8 is $750. Pixel 2 is nowhere to be found here though.

Great video, except for the Gucci Gang part. 🤢🤢
Lucas and Pikachu (30 days ago)
Dylan Snyder Lil Pump is so retarded. He only says two words, he doesn't know how to behave on an airplane, and for a 17-year-old, he isn't in school. In a few months, people are going to forget about him.

Love my Pixel 2 XL. Got rid of my Galaxy S8 for it, and don't regret it.
Robert Ibanez (21 days ago)
same here, had the s8+.  ridiculous how you notice the slightest lag on other devices once you go stock.
Mick Harrison (30 days ago)
Lol shit cunt
Michael Guyadeen (30 days ago)

Hopefully pixel 3 won't look as bad cause I really like the software but damn this phone is ugly
fightnight14 (8 hours ago)
The real beauty is what's on the inside that's what makes the phone sexy for me. What will you do with all that curves, elegance and modern design if the software is slow and cluttered? Uhh no thanks
Haziq Hasifi (2 days ago)
I'm actually fond of the design. Well, we all have different taste.
Emad Ahmed (30 days ago)
The design has grown on me. Now I quite like it.

What's the trick to make it reasonably priced (besides buying the bootloader-locked Verizon variant)?
Red Hood (1 month ago)
I’m about to buy a phone tomorrow. Do you recommend this over Note 8 or iPhone X?
Jasper Edwards (11 days ago)
Yes, definitely buy the Pixel 2 or 2 XL...best Android phones hands down.
Michael Angelo (17 days ago)
Pixel 2 Xl for the win! Best camera so far for all the smartphones!

Robert Ibanez (21 days ago)
you just called this phone trash in another post, now you're interested?
Chris Emerick (1 month ago)
I'm surprised you didn't mention being able to change the default icon shape. I prefer the teardrop shape over stock round
No Problem :P My Pixel 2 is coming in a couple days, I just used to run an 8.0 Custom rom on my old phone.
Stephen Lewandowski (30 days ago)
The Creeper Universe - HD Gaming And More! Thanks! I didn't think of developer options. I enabled them and the option appeared in the launcher settings
Chris Emerick (30 days ago)
Stephen Lewandowski once you activate the developer settings and you don't see the change icon shape in home settings,try turning the dev settings off then on again. Sometimes restarting the phone helps too
Stephen Lewandowski Activate developer options by clicking the Build number, then go into the stock launcher settings. Forgive me if I am wrong, but there should be the adaptive icon shape setting there
Stephen Lewandowski (30 days ago)
Chris Emerick How do you actually change the icon shapes? Where in the settings can you find this? I've wanted to modify it without a 3rd party launcher but I can't find the setting. I believe I've seen the option on the first gen pixels but not the second gen
Bahahahha Gucci Gang

Varun Kesari (29 days ago)
+Call Me Candy Man soo far soo excellent. i would recommend it anyone no matter from which Custom Skin or OS they are coming. its the best phone ever made. only thing i wish could have been better is if the phone would have been 5.5 inch instead of 5 inch.
