Google Pixel 2 XL review: A conflicted second coming


After a rocky start, Google's tweaks and changes have given the Pixel 2 XL the appeal that it needed. It's not the best design to encase this new

Waterproofing ; Solid build ; Good battery performance ; Great camera performance in most conditions ; Display's saturated mode gives the look we wanted

Design doesn't make best use of space ; No 3.5mm headphone socket ; Camera white balance inconsistencies ; No microSD card slot

The Google Pixel 2 XL brought with it a great deal of excitement at launch, with a sense of ambitious design, embracing the 18:9 display and moving things forward, as well as adding that water proofing to keep pace with the best out there.

Google Pixel 2 XL India review


A really impressive smartphone with an absolutely killer camera

Smart software that will only get better ; Confident design ; One of the very best smartphone cameras

No 3.5mm headphone port ; Expensive ; Poorer screen than last year's model

Despite losing the cherished 3.5mm headphone jack, the Pixel 2 XL makes up for it in spades with a mix of unique and sought-after features like a stellar design, waterproofing, Active Edge and a truly impressive camera.

Google Pixel 2 XL Smartphone Review


No reference. The Pixel 2 XL is visually a high-end smartphone from 2017 and has a POLED display in the 2:1 format. Visually, the relation to the LG V30 cannot be denied, but it has taken a different path in terms of the camera. Furthermore, there is...

fast SoC ; modern Android with long update cycle ; excellent camera ; good speakers ; fast LTE ; aptX HD ; free cloud storage for pictures and videos ; IP67

display could be brighter ; very limited viewing angle stability ; no dual-SIM ; no microSD slot ; PWM ; no more MIMO-WLAN

Google’s focus and the main selling point of its latest smartphones is the combination of hardware, software, and artificial intelligence that these two constitute. The Google Pixel 2 XL is certainly a very good smartphone, but there is still quite a...

Google Pixel 2 XL


Pixel 2 XL review, features, news, specs and price UK: Google's Pixel 2 XL is bigger, but it's also a lot better looking than the Pixel 2

Stunning camera ; The best version of Android ; Minimal bezel ; Feels great to hold

Lifeless screen

There’s nothing revolutionary or noticeably poor about the 3520mAh cell in the Pixel 2 XL. It’s a perfectly fine battery that’ll get you through the day.

A review of the Google Pixel 2 XL, a flagship Android phone that wants to take on the iPhone X and Galaxy S8.

Google Pixel 2 review: plainly great


Incredible cameras, practical design, and polarizing screens. Google's latest phones are the best way to get a true Android experience

Incredible camera ; Great speakers ; Best Android experience

Screen shows image retention immediately ; Colors are muted, even compared to other sRGB screens ; No headphone jack

The Pixel 2 isn't the nice dining room table with the fancy silverware. It's the kitchen counter where you actually eat. It's not as impressive, but it's much more comfortable. That's what makes the design of this year's Google Phones great. They're...

Google Pixel 2 XL review: Google’s supersized, bezel-less flagship has one HUGE flaw


The Pixel 2 XL releases next month, but is Google's plus-sized flagship really better than last year's effort?

Superb camera quality ; Great design

Expensive ; Terrible display

Sure, it has the latest, and greatest processor on-board, and includes the best smartphone camera to date, but its lofty price and poor video capture quality mean Google’s plus-sized Pixel 2 XL is certainly not a phone I can recommend. At least, not in...

Google Pixel 2 XL review


Google ditches the bezels and makes its best phone yet

Phenomenal camera ; Beautiful display and matching audio ; The best Android experience around

Bezels still a little on the chunky side ; No wireless charging or expandable storage

The Pixel 2 XL puts practicality before panache but delivers where it counts with an incredible camera and the definitive Android experience

Google Pixel 2 XL review


Blazing-fast speed and a brilliant camera, all in a futuristic, edge-to-edge design. The Pixel 2 XL is the best Android phone around.

Gorgeous design ; Blazing fast performance ; Brilliantly reliable camera ; Excellent software experience, fast updates ; IP67 water-resistant

No headphone jack ; Display has blue tint when viewed from sides

Blazing-fast speed, a brilliant camera, an uncluttered and beautiful Android experience, all in a futuristic, edge-to-edge design. A headphone jack would have been icing on the cake, but this is still the Android cake to own.

Google Pixel 2 XL


The Pixel 2 XL packs more Google into its body than any other phone on the market.

Excellent battery life. Terrific low-light camera performance. Elegant Google software. Great build.

No headphone jack or microSD card slot. Lacks Band 71 for expanded T-Mobile coverage.

Buying a Pixel 2 XL may be a little out of your comfort zone, because it isn't sold directly by most carriers. But it's worth it. Verizon sells the 64GB Pixel 2 XL directly for $849.99 or $35.41 per month. But that model has bloatware and a locked...
