Pixel 2 is currently imploding within the enthusiast community and the iPhone X is up for preorder in two days. Welcome!

The Essential Phone has really fallen off a cliff price wise. I'm not going to be surprised when it is $400 on BlackFriday with bundled 360 Camera.
The question is how long the company is going to stay in business. It would suck to spend so much money on a phone and not get any support for it a year later.

Shit. AJ is back?


Also im the most mix feeling about my 2 xl. Camera is magic. Apps reload are wack, like a Samsung. Takes 2 hrs to 'fast charge'.

I am still rocking my Note 4, got a second battery and my baby has been doing well so far never-mind that I spilled water on it, dropped it tons of times...etc. Samsung 8 looks gorgeous but for now I cannot justify getting it yet.

i love how the things i hate about the pixel 2 xl are completely different from the ones that reviewers are whining about. Switching between chrome, discord, irccloud, youtube feedly, not the heaviest of apps and things are reloading.

So painful after using a oneplus 5.

oh yeah 5T is suppose to be in nov. My thoughts on pixel 2 xl vs op5 is, both have mediocre screens, pixel got magic camera and better vibration and stereo speakers, op5 is better at everything else, miles better.

The Pixel 2 is a travesty. When major, trusted, and reputable websites are saying not to buy it and telling Google to recall it, there's a big problem. It's not a slightly miscalibrated screen. If it were, these respected websites wouldn't overreact like they are now. They're only being this extreme because the situation deserves it.

You shouldn't have been the one to make this trash OT. Yes, these are fighting words.
You're welcome to spend time, effort, and energy toward a for-profit website owned by one person.

Who invited you, anyway? This seems like a compromised account.

Nice call on the death of the headphone jack. I was pretty vocally against it, but after having my Pixel 2 XL for a week... I don't miss it. Just need to get some good bluetooth headphones and ditch the dongle.

Mainly lurked the old thread, but new forum and all I think I'll change that.

Good to have AJ back in an Android OT.

Death to the headphone jack. Ditch it. Get some bluetooth headphones and embrace the future of smartphones.

Could return the Pixel 2XL. I cancelled my preorder because of the screen. You could probably flip an iPhone X and make $400-$500 profit lol

The Pixel 2 is the biggest Android disappointment, ever, I think. It was actually supposed to be good. And it could have been.

I don't even recognize you. I'm not sure why you're being so rude. I was banned from a website I protested against, resulting in the ban. The same forum which you left. Why don't you stay there?

I'm here. I hope you're not suggesting I'm an astrosurfer! The only main Xperia person I know of was Kaiyo. I did see DrFunk on the general discord channel.

Were you not banned for the persona thread? I don't even remember. And, why would I stay at GAF...?

I got a Pixel 2 at work for build testing and it’s really really great. Far better than my last Android experience. Would love to get one for personal use but am so 50/50 on doing it because of the screen.

I think Pixel 2 screens have less issues because they are manufactured by Samsung. What a way to take a big L LG...

But something is going on here because we have seen many issues with the LG V30 yet, right?

Sit tight, I have a 3,400 word count op with about 20-25 pictures and roughly 42 hyperlinks.

That’s what I’ve gathered when comparing against someone’s 2 XL.

Either way between the camera and how fluid Android feels it’s a real thought for me. Especially since my 6Plus got bent and I can’t unsee it, or unfeel it, now that I’ve noticed.

if i told you 12 months ago that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was gonna be the hottest phone of 2017 and that was 100% serious and not a fire related joke, what would you have said back then?

I would have been keen for a new phone this year however when my Nexus 6P boot looped earlier this year, they replaced mine from a 32 GB to a 128 GB for free.

From what I am seeing from the new Pixel, there isn't quite enough there for me to replace my current phone unless I hear some more buzz from people using it day to day.

yeah, thats what i might do lol. If I get lucky then yay, otherwise, not gonna miss much. Honestly with the stories about the iphone X, I can't imagine their not be some controversies around it... at least apple was smart enough to not go LG... they could have! LG does their ips panels lol.


Pixel 2 xl is fine, i need it for the camera mostly. not gonna buy a note 8, and im not gonna import a huawei.

Also yo... Essential phone for $500. Get a code from someone that was a sucker, $300. Pretty good price!
