  1. Ordered Just black today… Cant wait

  2. Im thinking about getting this phone for my birthday

  3. hey where can i get, these, hum, phones for a couple hundred bucks… heh.

  4. Probably the best Pixel 2 XL review I have watched over past few weeks. Well done! The screen problems are not deal breakers to me and I cant get over it because of that camera, front speakers, and battery life!

  5. I am on the waiting list notification for panda

  6. Noticed Biltmore estate on some of your pictures, Love that house.

  7. Don't know if I should order the pixel 2 or the xl the difference of the size is minimal I want to get rid of my s8 so badly 😣😣

  8. That was definitely a good review i did not expect to hear. Quite some interesting observations.

  9. Great review.
    Could you explain more about the audio experience via headphones?
    Is it any good?

  10. how do these compare to sony front facing speakers?

  11. Watching this channel for the first time and this is awesome channel love from Pakistan…. Pixel 2 xl is great phone with stunning camera both front and back… Front face speakers and pure stock android experience…

  12. I dont know if i should get the v30 or the pixel 2 xl 🤔

  13. You said extremely good battery life.
    Does this count for both of them? How much SoT can i expect from the smaller pixel 2? Atleast 4-5 hours with normal usage?

  14. im not really worried about the blue tint or the so called graininess as you just showed in the video (barely any as far as i can see). The thing that worries me is the uniformity. some people are saying that the hue considerably changes from top to bottom. Do you see this with your XL?

  15. Excellent review mate. Shame Aussies don't get the phone until November! Looking forward to it!

  16. Great review. I'll be sticking with my OG pixel XL though. Applied 2 apks to give me those live wallpapers and that new pixel launcher UI 😍

  17. Thank god a reviewer actually points out how exaggerated the crying in other reviews about the 2 XL's screen is. Thanks for this. I already bought the 2 XL and have had it a few days now and I have zero complaints. Loving everything about this phone!

  18. Great video. How about temps? Does the phone overheat or get too hot after use for awhile.

  19. The headphone jack would be a big deal if there were not already usb-c earphones, but there are and I'm sure they can deliver equal or even better quality than 3.5 mm jack. Wireless charging? Really? You can't even move your phone while using it, it's totally useless (not to mention slow). When we're able to walk around our room while charging it wirelessly, THAT will be awesome. When manufactures started removing SD card slots I thought it wasn't ok, but now I think it's better to run your stuff (specially apps) from the phone as they start faster, and transfering your files will take just seconds through usb-c so no big deal. Though everybody is praising it, I'm still skeptical about one camera being better than two, as zoom and focusing are (in my opinion) always better achieved with optical features rather than software processing (does anybody know how wide is the angle btw?). It's said that the screen looks very poor, specially for people like me who are used to those oversaturated Samsung screens. Google says they've tried to make it look as natural as possible which seems good for pictures (I hated when I checked my phone's photos on PC and they looked totally different, very low contrast and not that vibrantly colorful), but this is definitely a bad score for video watching and gaming, so I really hope they can fix it through a software update and get both colorful and natural display. And about design…they definitely could've done better. Galaxy S8 and iPhone X win here by far, but I prioritize functionality over looks and always use a case anyway. Hopefully I can get the Pixel 2 XL soon and make a (neutral) review myself about it!

  20. What a review !! Great Video !!

  21. Is this american Jaime Rivera?

  22. "Drop a couple hundred dollars on…" If only smartphones cost a couple hundred dollars 🙁

  23. now i can pee on my phone

  24. great review! very thorough. Not many reviewers ever mention word about speaker quality or the headphone quality

  25. Nice review! Thanks for staying unbiased and not over exaggerating anything. Keep it up

  26. You need more subscribers. Great video.

  27. Is he saying v30 two… Or v30 too….

  28. 👍🏻 👍🏻 👍🏻 👍🏻 👍🏻 👍🏻

  29. Waiting for my panda pixel 😭

  30. great review. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  31. wow i thought your review would be like everyone elses but i was wrong. You are so good and give a great neutral review. stating the goods and not overexagerating the bad things like other do

  32. Great video should I switch my samsung galaxy s 8plus? For google pixel 2 or pixel 2 xl?

  33. Don't ever buy anything from Google. A smartphone with no good voice or wifi reception.

  34. This was a very well done review. Thanks✌🏼

    Edit: Better not be late for your homegroup!

  35. from all the "reviews" out there, this is one of the best. Critical, but neutral and reall informative. I'm impressed!

  36. Thank you for informative review. And for making people away when you were being subjective. Great video. 👍

  37. So the Samsung 1080p display > LG 2K display? 🤔

  38. So the ultimate winner is samsung … it profits from Apple, Google, and itself lol

  39. The display truly puts me off 🙁

  40. Great detailed review! I appreciate the fact that you even mentioned the sound quality and the vibration motor. Hearing from you guys that the whole display crisis of the 2 XL is a non issue is good news. Looking forward to your full camera review 👏

  41. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
