You mean the annual phone update?

Can also get a few more £'s off if you buy it with a SIM only contract.



Personally, I'm undecided between this and S9+
having secured a prstine refurb on here for £350-£400.

this phone isnt worth over £500...

its good but not that good.

ive currently got both, the S9+ is sublime to be fair, along with better screen, expandable storage and headphone socket, go for that.

I agree with you there.I have the note 8 and the s9 plus but there's no denying the pixel 2 XL is a superb phone for camera alone.Some people prefer plain android I don't but for a flagship large screen phone it's pretty decent.

Why?
No phone is "worth" over £500.
Unless you stick a logo of a fruit on it.
Been this price for ages?
My RMA replacement should arrive today, at least this gives me an idea of its worth (B/W 128GB) will just wait for the £1 final fee offer on eBay
will the 02 bundle then cancel loophole still work?

Pixel XL is made by LG screenwise. Had so many issues. My manager at cpw sent his back due to the screen having a permanent fingerprint mark on it. Pixels have been known as pixel lottery as you don't know whether you'll get a good phone or a bad phone

You can get the Pixel 2XL for £529 with the sim only when the S9 + would be £729. People have reported that they got £50 cashback too from TCB.

To make a choice between the two you need to decide what you value more between camera, software and battery for Pixel and screen, headphone jack and wireless charger for S9+. I got the Pixel 2XL and I am very happy with it. After many years of owning Samsung phones I got bored and tired of having to root their phones to get rid of all the bloatware they come packed with. Get the Pixel 2 XL and if you don't like it you have 14 days to take it back and in the meantime the S9 might drop a little more in price.

Mine worked last week. The screen on XL was so bad , that I ended up returning it though. Horrific blue shift, and really grainy on solid whites and greys. Couldn't stick it.
The key is to ring O2 direct. Don't mention CPW to them as they will send you back their way. Cancel via the sim number. Was done inside 5 minutes.

I think they've been this price a while, so don't think they are shifting stock. And the screen issues are well documented. Mine had a build date of Feb this year, so they clearly haven't ironed out the issues as stated on the web.
For what it's worth the phone was epic. But as mentioned before, at the £529 I paid I'd want a better screen. You stare at the thing all day so I found it underwhelming. Actually prefer the LCD panel on my Blackberry KEYone!!
Maybe some people wouldnt care, but I couldn't manage. Gutted though as it's the perfect phone otherwise. Maybe the Pixel will finally get it right.

You should have tried to get it replaced. Mine doesn't have the any screen issues.

What about camera???

its hard to tell the difference yet but both are exceptional.

ultimately the pixel 2 xl just didnt feel great, blue shift on screen, felt very plasticy and hollow when you typed which was irritating too.
This was sold on ebay by somebody today for 382..128gb;l new-sealed..

I was searching for this for the last 2 weeks ( missed deal for 379 pristine condition from laptoosdirect.
But now after all this people stating about screen problems+ you...putted me off a bit..
Can only echo the other comments regarding the phone itself. Bought for £529 a month ago with the O2 SIMO deal. First 2 XL screen was awful, wasn't consistent in brightness and colour tone and had horrendous blue tint. Exchanged for another which was better but screen still noticeably blue compared to other phones in household. After using it for a couple of days, still felt it was poor overall for a £500+ phone. Camera was excellent though and OS snappy and rapid.

O2 wouldn't let me cancel the SIMO directly either, insisted it had to be done by CPW. Ended up returning phone and cancelling SIM under 14 day returns at CPW.

To be honest, this is what worried me. How bad does quality control have to be to have so many variations on screen quality.?
Genuinely loved the phone, but LG just don't make good hardware.
How long before this bad boy bootloops!?!?
Had mine a while now. No issues, simple Android as it should be and screen is fine. The only issue is the bit about how fast it charges. It's no faster or slower than my old S7.
Price of these has gone up.

Got mine a month a go or so for total 707 over 2 years with 4GB data.

Good phone, wouldn't pay this much outright though..

Why is a phone with a pic of a banana on it worth more than £500?
Got the phone and managed to cancel O2 contract without issue.
Seems ok to me, very smooth, slight blue hue.
2 year warranty makes up for it.

I'm currently contemplating part chopping my Note 8 for an S9 Plus.

Do you think it's worth the extra £200 on top?

Excellent phone. You won't regret it
