For most peoples this is gimmick. Google delivered what we like to see in flagship - great battery life and best ever camera.

The Pixel 2 & Pixel 2 XL is waterproof both have an IP67 rating the same as what the iPhone X has. Also before you start going on about how your S8 is IP68 their is very little difference between IP67 AND IP68. IP67 on pixel 2 means it is fully dust proof and can be fully submerged in water as deep as 1 meter for 30 minutes. IP68 on S8 means it is fully dust proof and can be fully submerged in water as deep as 1.5 meters for 30 minutes. Very little difference only half a meter more and only for 30 minutes still.

I bought this on release and paid the full £629 , can't believe it's dropped this much already, best phone I've ever owned and don't think I'll ever want to shy away from stock android , doesn't seem to have any issues that are affecting the XL

I got the Pixel 2 XL via EE (Special deal) with calls and data with a free Google home mini and no upfront cost for either at £17.99 a month. Amazing phone glad I moved away from Apple.

Its great that such a fantastic smartphone is now under £500 and 1/2 price verses "X".


The software 'Oreo', if very polished, super quick, my Mi A1 got 'Oreo' yesterday

Is a good screen a gimmick? What about microsds? Waterproofing? Christ you're as bad as the apple fanboys.
Great price. And considering I just returned my oneplus 5t earlier this week due to finding the camera sub par (for my personal liking) this seems a great option at only £50 more
can anyone confirm if they have this issue with the screen (homescreen).
screen rotated to the right
none of the taps work along the row of icons on the right

What an ugly phone.

Pixel 2 xl has screen issues, pixel 2 not. Goggle gives You unlimited cloud storage for pictures and videos, even 4k. Gimmick is a possibility to connect your phone to tv.

I thought you were only interested in B20.
I'm about to receive my 3rd pixel after the first 2 developed faults. And yet I still won't change phone. The overall user experience and camera make it such a joy to use. Purely comparing the spec sheet to another phone isn't representative of the feel day to day.

I tried out an s8 in store and the very very slight increase in lag on the interface was infuriating.

At £500 this phone has an industry leading camera, flagship battery life, decent front facing speakers, rapid charging, access to Google updates first and looks great.

It's up there imo with OP5T as best phone on a budget.

Hi
I bought my Mi A1 for £184 from banggood, with £11 cashback from TCB.
I paid with PayPal and delivery was 10 days from order, I choose the standard (free) delivery.
Hope this helps.

Ps
I use Microsoft Launcher
Pixel 2 'Live wallpaper', waves on beach
Samsung browser

Great deal, just wish there wasn't £100 price premium for the 128GB version. Eitherway voted hot for the deal on offer.
I have the Pixel 2. It is an amazing phone. Much better than my Samsung s7. The pixel 2 is so fast, has no bloatware, constant updates and the camera is truly amazing. love it
Great phone, would recommend to anyone in the market for a smaller phone. I kinda miss having a bit more screen real estate, but apart from that it's perfect.

I thought it was IP67 meaning up to 1 meter for 30 minutes, so more than enough to survive a dunk in the toilet or bath.

It's the obligatory "you can't use this as a computer!" post from the one guy in the universe who cares about it. I mean it's great that samsung gave out a dock, but for the rest of the world who use actual computers as computers it's hardly a dealbreaker.

He thinks his S8 is better because it has an IP68 rating even though it can only withstand half a meter more of water for the same amount of time as the pixel.

I have the 5T which is in its 14 day return period so I'm tempted to go for this. But getting 8-9 hours of screen on time is a big factor in favour of the one plus...
Same price at carphone warehouse and Curry's too.

When you look at alternatives around same price, they are much more capable.

I'm not sure why anyone would get this over the £360 LG G6. Also the Honor View 10 comes out in 3 days at £450 and looks like a corker of a phone.
