Great phone, great camera!|Posted .
I've owned the Pixel 2 XL for about 2 months now. Phone calls are crystal clear, web pages load quickly, the fingerprint reader is super fast and accurate, and that CAMERA! It's the best phone camera I've used. Now that Google has expanded Night Sight mode, I've gotten some amazing low light pictures (see attached photo). The portrait mode is amazing too! I love this phone.I would recommend this to a friend

The Phone Is Super!|Posted .
Happier than ever since replacing my Iphone 6 with the Pixel 2XL in early July 2018! Pictures are amazing!!! Holds charge wonderfully. Love, being a major Google Fan. Big ease of everything transferring over from the old phone. Synched up nicely with my at home devices Love the storage in my Google Pictures I can easily access online. Editing program is excellent. Phone works nicely too....LolI would recommend this to a friend

Fabulous Phone!|Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
Hello! So, I bought this phone on 3/22/19. I am writing this review on 3/25/19. I figured a few days would be long enough to give me a great consensus on how about I feel about the phone. Before I start, I just want to give some background info, and I promise I will be quick. My previous phone was the original Google Pixel (128GB unlocked). Before that, I had been an Apple loyalist, with varying models. My current work phone is an iPhone 8+. The original Google Pixel is what finally turned me on to Android! Speaking of which, on to this beautiful phone! I have been wanting to upgrade my phone since last year. I loved my original Pixel, however, the battery wasn't doing as well, and it was showing its age. However, with the pricing of new phones so high, I kept telling myself to hold-out for the Pixel 3, or even the 4 on a good sale. Well, I am glad I held-out, because Best Buy had the Google Pixel 2 XL on sale! A massive sale (with tax, I paid $430, with a protection plan)! Pretty impressive, right? Anyway...about this phone. I LOVE IT! The Google Pixel 2 XL is a fantastic phone! From the moment I took it out of the box, and powered it on, I was impressed with how it felt in my hand! It didn't slip, or made my hand feel cramped! It just fit perfectly into my hand. Setting the phone up was a breeze, since I was coming from another Google device, it was easy to transfer stuff via the cloud. I use Google Fi as my wireless carrier, so all I had to do was pop in the SIM card I already had (that's right, folks...despite being advertised as a "Verizon" phone, it's an unlocked device, that just happens to come with a Verizon SIM card pre-installed). The phone did it's updates (that took a while, cause there were a LOT OF UPDATES), but once it was finished with that, I got into downloading all my apps, pictures, etc. That was a breeze. This phone is super fast. I have played some heavy games on it, and it never lags! Not one bit! Switching in and out of an app is snappy. The software is great. It's as close to pure Android as you can get. I never noticed any overheating while playing with it or even charging, but I will let you know over time if I do. Call quality is amazing. I didn't notice any static when on calls. Audio has been crystal clear. Easy to hear. The speakers are LOUD! Which, for me, is a great thing, cause I love music. The fingerprint sensor, in my opinion, is the best one on a mobile phone right now. Apple and Samsung could really learn a thing or two from Google in that department. Charging is super fast, thanks to rapid charging. I think it only took about 45-50 minutes to fully charge. Speaking of the charge, my battery lasts all day, with lite to moderate usage, with about 25-35% when I get home after a long day of work and classes. The camera is absolutely superb! Pictures always come out gorgeous. I think the camera is the true shining star on this phone. It just cannot be beaten, in my opinion. I definitely recommend getting a screen protector for this phone. I got mine off Amazon for like $7. Not those cheap-feeling ones either, it's a really strong one. Case is optional, but I highly recommend it, especially a clear case to show off the phone. I also recommend getting the Geek Squad protection. Phones are expensive, and it's worth protecting your investment. It's nice that Best Buy has the much cheaper option to pay for protection on a monthly basis. I really do not have any complaints about this device. I think it's the best phone out there (I'm sure the Google Pixel 3 is better, but for now, I love this one). I haven't had any of the issues some of the 1-star reviews complain about. If I do, I will update my review. I highly recommend this phone! PROS: EVERYTHING! CONS: NOTHING YET!

Better than most people said|Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
this device suffers from many reviewers, because almost every video an you tube, and every article out there said that this device has problems mainly with the screen, that it feels cheap and others of the sort, however, in my own experience i can say that it is a great device, don't get me wrong it has small problems none of them are something that an everyday user like me would notice without reading the reviews before hand, also i have come to realize that these tiny problems are not nearly as bad as to what most people said. This is my first google phone never before own a pixel or nexus device (i owned galaxy S4, Galaxy S7, iphone 4s, iphone 6s, moto X 2016, blackberry Z10 and many others before this one) and i am sticking with the pixel line from now on.

Finally.....Pure Android|Posted .
After having been a longtime Samsung Galaxy owner, I was finally thinking about seriously moving to an iPhone. I got fed up with how quickly my phones were getting bogged down by apps I never used and couldn't uninstall (thx Samsung) as time went by. However, with our home being set up as a Google Home (Chromecast, Home Max, Google Assistant and Ecobee) I was reluctant to move away from Android all together. I was told by a few iPhone loyalists to take a look at the Google Pixel phones, which apparently some of them were actually considering. After a little bit of web searching and a hands on review at my local BB, I made the decision to go ahead and buy into the Pixel phone family. I can honestly say that I can't believe what a difference there is between this 2XL and my previous Galaxy Note. Without all of Samsung's bloatware, I have never had a phone run so smoothly. Call quality is terrific in HD and the camera (both stills and video) is out of this world!!! Battery life so far has been extremely good for me as I rarely need to charge my phone more than every other day. FWIW, I do stream an average of video or but play no music so YMMV based on your usage. I do miss having a 3.5mm headphone jack so it will take some time getting used to wireless only listening but overall I am thrilled I made the decision to stick with Android and buy the Pixel 2XL.

Wonderful camera, but heavy in handPosted .I would recommend this to a friend
I got my Pixel 2 XL with a $400 discount. With that being said, I feel like I certainly got my money's worth. If I had paid full price, however, I would be disappointed. What's great about this phone is the camera and the sheer speed of the processor. It opens apps and jumps to web pages in an instant. It blows my old Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge away in that regard. I also love the Google assistant features. I can even ask Google to take a photo for me. Then, it will give me a 3 second countdown before it takes a photo. I'm having a blast with the augmented reality features on the camera. You put the camera in video mode, select the augmented reality options from the camera menu, and then shoot a video with Star Wars characters, Strangers Things, or dancing cartoon and food creatures. This is sort of the icing on the cake when it comes to this camera. This camera takes beautiful pictures without me having to adjust settings manually or use a filter. It's just a wonderful camera. There are manual options in there, but if you don't want to bother with those, you can still get great photos without worrying about them. I love the motion capability. If you leave it turned out, it gives you the ability to turn your still photos into gifs. I love the gboard keyboard that is pre-installed on the phone as well. It has a variety of stickers and emoticons that you can use across your various apps. I can't say enough about how much I've enjoyed these little extras. The keyboard also is easy to use whether you're a traditional typist or someone who prefers to swype through words. My calls have been clean and clear on both my end and the receiver's end. I like the two speaker's on the front of the phone. They are great for listening to video clips, podcasts, or audiobooks. If you're looking for speakers to listening to music with heavy bass, you're better off using headphones. These speakers are loud, but they won't give you the highs and lows that you could get with a good pair of headphones. The phone is heavy in my hands. That's something I didn't expect. I knew I found it a bit hard to hold when I got it, but I had trouble figuring out why. Finally, it occurred to me. This phone is heavy for me to hold. I do have some trouble with my hands from time to time so this weight may be bothersome for me at some point. For now, I'm just assuming that I'll get use to the weight. That being said, I might have been better off if I hadn't gotten the XL edition, however. I'm just use to having a larger phone. I know there have been some complaints about the screen on this device. Personally, I'm very pleased with the screen. One of the first things that I did when I got it was to boost the color of the display to saturated. Once I did that, this screen was much sharper to my eyes than my previous phone. I've tried a few games like Temple Run and they have all worked beautifully. That being said, I'm not big on playing graphic intensive games on my phone. This phone charges incredibly fast. I thought my old phone was fast, but this one leaves it in the dust. Now, here are the little things that I don't like. This phone is Google's idealized version of Android. That means they didn't incorporate lots of extra fun features into the phone. The good thing about that is that the phone runs so quickly. The downside is that you may miss those goofy little extra features that you'd find on something like a new Samsung phone. For example, I can't create folders in my app drawer. That blew my mind when I first got this phone. Now, I could install a launcher and get that capability back, but that would defeat the purpose of having a pure Android phone. Likewise, the background of the text messages is completely plain. I can't find a way to add colors or backgrounds there. (It's possible that I just haven't figured out a way to do that.) What I'm trying to say is that I miss those goofy little customization options. I'm just use to having them because my last two phones have been from Samsung. I'll adjust. If I don't, I'll install a launcher later. Problem solved. Those minor gripes aside, this is a wonderful device. I feel like I got a premium phone for a mid-range price. In all honesty, that is exactly what I wanted. I have no intentions of paying $800-$1,000 for a phone when I know that I'll want a new one in 2 years. I believe I paid $550 for this phone with a Verizon contract and 128 GB of memory. I didn't have to trade my old phone in either. I feel good about this purchase.

Absolutely love this phone!|Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
This has been in my opinion the best android phone of 2017. Despite the well known issues with the display which is manufactured by LG in my experiences, it has been superb. I haven’t noticed any of the image retention or burn in issues others have seen. In fact the display has performed very well! The front facing speakers have been terrific, the build is top notch, and the squeeze to invoke google assistant has actually been pretty convenient. There is no wireless charging but in reality that makes it out to be a compromise because they’ll use glass instead of metal. Honestly, if you’re on the fence about this phone, get it! It has the perfect mixture of great technologies and very few compromises!

Your Choice|Posted .I would recommend this to a friend
I read so many reviews. Watched some many YouTube reviews. Despite all the wishy washy garbage floating, I took the plunge. You really have to decide what is most important. Having updates like Apple, timely, and often. Or go with another device. I just moved from another manufacturer over to the Pixel 2 Xl after only eight months with the other device. I received four, four updates in eight months. Beyond that, the Pixel Android experience on this phone is hands down the cleanest, fastest, most efficient Android experience you will ever have. This phone hiccups at nothing. The Blue Tint hype around the screen are negligible, and I didn't notice it at all. The latest version of Android allows you to adjust the color of the screen with a couple of presets which help immensely. I have used many AMOLED panels over the years. Once your are used to looking at that type of screens for years, you expect a certain look. This screen is not as sharp as the Samsung panels but the colors are pleasing and above average. I purchased the black model and the texture of it reminds me of my HTC One m7 back in the day. Camera is AMAZING. You will want to take more pictures when you have this with you. Battery is stellar. Just can't say enough good things about this device. Nothings perfect but this, is perfect for me.
Q: QuestionWas going to purchase the Pixel 2 XL from the google store but they are sold out. They have options to select Verizon or Unlocked. Bestbuy only has Verzion option. I have AT&T will this work?
Asked by Mattyboy.
- A:Answer Yes, this phone will work on AT&T. It only comes with a Verizon sim. If you were to buy this phone you can remove the Verizon sim and put your AT&T sim in it and it will work just fine.
Answered by radgatt
Asked by Tyler.
- A:Answer It comes with a Verizon Sim card preinstalled. Just take it out before you boot it up and put in your carriers sim card and it will work fine on any carrier. It is unlocked and it is NOT VERIZON exclusive. It just has a locked bootloader, which is the difference between unlocked and Verizon model. Unless you want to play around with the internal workings of the phone, which is why you would want to unlock a bootloader, or if you don't know what a bootloader is, then it will be fine, just TAKE the sim card out before booting up phone.

Q: QuestionIf I order via Best Buy and pick up in the store, will they help me transfer data over from my old Samsung phone in the store? -Thanks
Asked by CoffeeTime.
- A:Answer You will get your phone in the original package, unopened. I think they will help you if they are very nice. But, Google has been working a lot to make sure you transition very easy from any phone to Pixel 2 XL thus there are a couple things that make this process super easy and intuitive. 1. They include a cable, so that you can connect your old phone with pixel 2. When starting the phone first time, you will have the chance to copy everything from your old phone and it will guide you to do that. 3. The support from Settings is super fast & ready to help. Very nice guys over there. The called me back in ~10 sec and I waited on line for about 20 seconds more. Then, a very nice guy was ready to help me with anything regarding my Pixel 2 XL. (that's a premium support I'd say). As a conclusion, you can do it yourself without any friction, and if you won't be able to, then support will 100% help with it.
