Looks like the keyboard on yours might have issues, too.

The Pixel 2 XL is an amazing phone, simply amazing, I love it so much. So far mine has been going 31.6 hours, with still 13% battery left and has had 5 hour screen on time, and I have taken quite a few photos. Assuming Google keep this standard I will never even consider another brand of phone.
The software is amazing. It is only when you start using it that you realise it is such a massive improvement on the Samsung version of Android. Imagine iOS but much more customisable and sophisticated. It is also smooth as butter.
Fingerprint scanner opens phone in .5 of a second.
The camera is amazing. I mean really amazing.
The squeeze to operate Google assistant is great and GA is amazing, it always recognises what I say. It recognises sequential questions. It even helped me troubleshoot bluetooth connecting headphones.
I downloaded some photos of food from Tripadvisor the other day. When I did the google lens thing on them, they recognised the restaurant they were taken in- I assume because they matched the photos to the ones harvested from the web. I took a picture of my BMW Estate with the hatchback open, at night, from the back, to see if it would recognise it was a car. It recognised it was an 'executive car', even with no badges visible.
Best phone I have ever had bar none. And I have had all the iPhones, the Galaxies etc.
The only 1 criticism is when I first got it, I tilted the screen on a white background to look for blue tint. Yes it was there. I then promptly forgot about it and haven't noticed it since, because I tend to look at my phone relatively straight. It really is a bit of a none issue. I have had no grain or anything else with it. In fact watching Youtube on it, with my son's S7 adjacent, this looks a lot better to me.
You will gather I would really, really recommend this phone!

Great deal. The pixel 2 XL is amazing and the latest updates have made it very stable, including the option to saturate the colours. The blacks are very deep and look amazing, as does watching Netflix shows on the tall aspect ratio.

The blue tint is barely noticeable and so is the grainyness on white screens. The design is very nice and I got bored of the oneplus.

The camera is unbeatable, so all other options mentioned here aren't bad but if you're looking for an amazing camera go for it.

How does that work?

I have Pixel 2 (standard) and its worth every penny (although got it on contract).
usual screen time 5-6hrs, great performance and lovely size (sick and tired of those gigantic phones)
If you dont mind the bazels (which is a non issue for me) it is a phone to buy

The 2 XL uses a LG Panel, the Pixel 2 uses a Samsung Panel.

And that's the problem. LG used their own panels for the 2 XL whereas HTC sourced it from Samsung. You can RMA the 2 XL if the screen is bad, but you'll be playing the lottery which is a shame considering how good the phone actually is.

Ridiculous price for a phone.

Really disappointed in the pixels, after years of descent Nexus devices these just seem out dated & plagued with issues (I know most brands have issues too) for a flagship product & price !
The free Google mini wouldn't make me buy one one ether, least they could do is throw in a full fat Google home !

Sorry I thought your comment was implying the 2 might have the same issues as the 2XL. (many think because the 2XL has issues the 2 is the same).

from experience all LG made google phones (nexus 4,5 and 2Xl) are full of issues, hence why I went with HTC made this time
Edited by: "mattsk" 10th Dec 2017

Good deal if you must have a Pixel (and quick Android updates), but I see very little reason to get this over a Oneplus 5t (for £450 - or £400 if you know a friendly student). Big bezels seem very 2016.

I had the same issue with a HTC One X a few years ago. Small crack at bottom of screen meant they wouldn't fix known issue with Wi-Fi antenna under warranty.

my screen is mint, its the back of the google xl, the glass screen that covers the camera has a crack in it, in no way does it affect the camera performance , in fact the pictures are superb, but sadly google refuse to acknowledge this and say the warranty is void unless i get it fixed by a google approved repair centre and the the warranty is valid and they will look at the phone for issues i described....pathetic really..

Nokia 8 seems to be getting decent reviews - so far.
Runs almost pure Android so I'll be interested to see how it fares.

Try to buy dbrand or slikwraps skin and then send to warranty. I have sent my nexus 5x to motherboard replace after bootloop and they did not remove skin and tempered glass.

They can't refuse to repair because of a crack in the back as that's just an aesthetic flaw. Had you already sent it off or something? If the issue is unrelated to the crack then it doesn't mean you've invalidated your warranty, unless the crack is the result of a drop that has unseated a component on the motherboard and is causing the crashing and reboots. Refusing to apply the warranty because of an aesthetic crack to the back would be like refusing to honour it because of a knock in the corner of the phone.

The sad truth about AMOLED is that you have to modify your use of the screen to avoid the inevitable changes over time, or just learn to live with it. All AMOLED gets screen burn, and it always will. The only solution is micro LED - which is surely the next big tech leap. The problem is down to the fact that as an organic compound, blue subpixels simply don't have the same lifespan as red and green, so PenTile displays have been created to attempt to mitigate this, but if you have your screen on bright, leave your screen with persistent icons a lot and don't change your wallpaper every now and again then you'll get obvious screen burn after a while. Even a carefully looked after AMOLED will display some slight shifts and ghosting after a year or so if you look carefully.

I'd say you have to either live with it (if you want a Pixel) or compromise with a different device. It's getting harder and harder to get IPS displays now though as the trend is towards AMOLED in the same way that the trend is moving towards bezelless displays.

Yeah, thanks. I did have a look before I bought my P10 lite just to see me through, this P10 lite does what I need it too & if it brake's the I can see the Nokia becoming the nex(us)t buy. Doing this is still way under the cost of the deal here.

They are moving forward with the burny tech for a few reasons:

Better contrast ratio, more effective HDR

Thinner display assembly

Display looks better on the shop floor.

People who buy phones generally don't question the longevity of the screen tech and just want the tech that looks nice. Personally I prefer the 'look' of IPS displays, as well as the fact that in terms of subpixels you're getting more bang for your buck with IPS - A QHD IPS display is effectively higher resolution than a QHD AMOLED display because IPS uses an RGB stripe rather than PenTile.

I guess that because it's a pretty good phone, has jack 3.5" and apparently the video camera recording future is the best one currently.
However Pixel 2 XL will have faster and longer android updates and better camera for still pictures..

I have the Pixel 2 on contract, have just received it but it's a keeper. The camera is exceptional, there is no comparison.
Those who want to squint and count the subpixels are missing out.

This phone has been plagued by issues - blue tint, unresponsive display edges, random reboots, poor audio quality in videos etc.

All of those issues notwithstanding, after my Nexus 6P's battery problems (thankfully I haven't been hit with the bootloop bug), I don't think I'll be buying another Google phone again. Their warranty support is amazing but even so, their QC is pretty terrible. Ended up getting an iPX instead of the Pixel 2 XL this year.

Unfortunately, I will miss the superb camera - 2 years on i'm still amazed by the photos taken on my 6P

Do you think the Home Mini will work for me? I also ordered the Telegraph deal with a Google Home the other week, that you have to claim through Google too... do you think their might be a policy of one claim per account or something along those lines?

I think I'm going to go for the small Pixel.

The pixel 2 is amazing in many respects. The camera is unbeatable. I loved the simplicity of it and using it was a dream but I just didn't like the large bezels and lack of headphone jack.
