Will wait another 3 months... (y)
It appears to throttle background services, my Google timeline is no longer accurate and photos are often tagged as being somewhere I was 15 minutes previously. Also the gps is nowhere near as accurate when indoors as my previous Sony Z5C.
I have a Pixel 2 and my mate a P20 normal, we both took pictures on a recent trip and the P20 normal was much better - this was outdoor views - during the day and at night. In general the Pixel 2 is fine but it doesn't blow me away. The battery is getting a bit ropey too.
And the screen looks so much better in Pixel 2xl. I've been using P20 Pro for a while but my wife got it now as I bought Pixel 2XL 128GB like new from CEX with 2 years warranty for £520 3 months ago. Pixel 2 XL is always compared on every YouTube video in every camera competition so wanted to tried it. Newest Android before any other phones makes it even more exciting and I'm very happy about the phone really
Thanks for the heads up, I will pass this info on to her, I totally agree with you about the Pixels ability to be a fantastic point and shoot, again thanks for taking time to give such a detailed reply (y)
