    What’s the opinions on the Pixel 2 XL ?

    Thinking about maybe buying my first smartphone and the Pixel 2 XL has caught my attention because of the 2 year warranty and the free unlimited photo storage.

    Pixel 2 XL is definitely one of the best phones of 2018. The blue shift issue no longer a major issue after software updates and it can be gotten on sale. Speakers screen and hardware is great. There might be a glitch or two here and there but it is one of my favorite phones.

    On the blue shift the phone I saw that had it you had to be exactly at a certain extreme angle to the side and then the tint of blue it showed was not unlike other smartphone screens. I concluded for all I know all my phone's could have had blue shift issues and I would have never noticed. So very very minor deal especially after the software updates.

    I tried to trade my Note 8 in for one but had some trouble and ended up sticking with the Note 8. Note 8 is narrower in the hand, a bit heavier perhaps, and has Iris and facial recognition. It is a bit more heavy duty feel to it than the Pixel 2 XL, but it's not perfect and with the Pixel 2 being discounted heavily I think the Pixel 2 is the better deal.

    Techfranz thanks for your reply !
    Stopped at a Verizon store today asking about the Pixel 2 today, didn’t hear much about the Pixel but they put a lot of effort into trying to sell me a Samsung Galaxy 8.

    $350, one reviewer claims Best Buy installs a bunch of stuff you can’t get rid of, do you think there’s any truth to that ?

    The ones we got were as stock Google as they can get. The only Bloat was what Google installs. I just disable the ones I don't use.

    It would never hurt to go in to Best Buy and and check them out.

    I can't think of anything really bad about the Pixel 2. Sometimes Phone Calls sound weird, but that could be anything and it's not consistent. Maybe to some the Pixel 2 would feel lighter more like a Fisher Price toy. As I said earlier the Pixel 2 XL is really wide unlike the latest Galax is that are tall and slim.

    The boxes they come in a really nice (like an iPhone, so tired of saying that ) and the with the good speakers and them being on sale and the huge screen I can't see a reason you should be afraid of them.

    No headphone jack. The original Pixel had it.
