    I have a Pixel 2 XL that was a pre-order. Software experience has been amazing still even today. Only issue is the charge port doesn't work very well anymore. Next phone I'm eye balling that One Plus 7 Pro or Pixel 4. Can't deny that Pixel camera.

    Have you used any Android tablets that match the iPad experience? I have an iPad Air 1 I love but can be slow and it's only a 16GB model. Would like to get the iPad Pro but am curious if Android tablets have caught up to iPad standards. Currently using a Pixel 2 as my phone but I'm not concerned about texting or anything on the tablet. I would still have my iPhone if that were the case.

    I love the camera on my pixel 2 xl but the battery is getting to me. Among other things. I'm seriously debating switching to the OnePlus 7 pro. If not waiting till the 4 comes out and see how nice it is. I realized I want a nicer screen. And better battery life

    I have an LG G6 that also has the 835 in it and I noticed the slow down pretty soon after I got it. I think it might be that chip.

    What you think of the p30 pro vs s10?

      J-NUTT MEDIA 20 hours ago +1

      @Jusa Masterthanks for the input, I've been watching reviews on them both, and I think the s10+ is for me cause of storage options and speed

      I would take the p30 pro. But you have to see what you will use more
      Huawei has better camera
      Meanwhile samsung has headphone jack. And so on, and so on
      You are the one that has to see what is better for you

    I just bought a Pixel 2 XL. I had been using the Nexus 6P for 2 years and it just got the boot-loop of death. Honestly, I had no problems with the 6P's performance so I'm sure that the Pixel 2 will be an improvement.

    Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on you. I will never get another google phone. Pixel 1 had lots of issues and I was reluctant to get the XL 2 . I will NOT fall for it again. Even if I am wrong, I'd rather not waste another $800+ Tech support also denies any of their issues. No thanks

    Why I'll probably buy a Pixel 2 XL
    1. I can run Oreo instead of Pie and record telephone conversations that millions of people rely on for taking notes and invoicing for their time. It's a big reason they aren't using an iPhone in the first place.
    2. It can be rooted and you can actually get a backup that you can restore to another Pixel 2 if you have a hardware failure and I can prevent operating system updates that I don't want.
    3. I'm not in carrier prison.
    The only thing missing now is the replaceable battery, which WILL return.

    Still using 2 XL and it seems just as good as the day I bought it, camera is still amazing. But I only use it for basic every day world use, (email, texts, pics, vid, web, calling, etc ) and I'm not a big app downloader anymore, keep my phone very simple and basic, so maybe I'm not noticing because of 🤷‍♂️.

    I thought phones by Google might be different, but obviously no. All my previous flagship android phones slowed down after a few months, and the battery lives were never as good as advertised or “reviewed” on TheXvid it was like a scam. Every time I bought an android phone I felt scammed in a short time if not immediately. I then went and got an iPhone XR - I’ve never been so happy with my phone. Apple = Reliable.

    I have the Pixel 2 XL since a bit less than 18 months and I also notice the lags sometimes. It's "funny" because Pixel phones weren't supposed to lag with time like Galaxy's.... so I guess my next phone will be whatever still uses a headphone jack, no matter what brand it is

    Switched from S7 Edge to Pixel 3 coz my screen broke and I hated it. Only thing good is the nigh time camera mode. Everything else, including the usable screen area and the hardware specs are sub par compared to a 3 year old S7 Edge which is unacceptable. Unlimited backups is a lie as they shrink the video files to smaller resolutions and you only get the backups till 2022.

    Why I eschew the Pixel → garbage hardware, limited, laggy, feature poor, buggy software! Just having a good night mode camera isn't enough to keep a phone.
    I'm also tired of people praising stock Android, it's the worst version of Android in pretty much every way - the so called "fast OS updates" are buggy and years behind pretty much every skinned version of Android in terms of features. They're really downgrades.

    Google Pixel 4 is Coming Soon!


    I bet what he does is upgrade the APPS all the time, and he's wore out or maxed out his SD storage on the Pixel 2... in a few years, upgrading the apps every day on the One Plus 6 will do the same and it will just be as slow as the Pixel 2 is now after years of use. So not a fair match up, he said one was newer than the other. Mainly, he updated the OS to the latest new and most bloated one.
    He's kind of out of touch, with his reviews, the vast majority of people use $100-$150 smart phones or less.... less being stuff being prepaid phones bought off the hook at walmart.

    So I do have a pixel 2 xl. I agree that there are a little bugs ( I guess you can call them that), but overall I still love this phone. But another thing that might interest you is that one of my friends has a one plus 6, and it also seems to have some of the similar bugs. I mean I don't know if its a isolated incident but even his phone has slowed down a little . Hence, right now I am not switching even when there is a pixel 3 xl just cause I don't want to spend that kind of money. But overall ya I do agree with you.
