With all of the recent drama surrounding the Pixel 2 XL display in particular, Google had indicated they were “actively investigating” the claims of screen burn-in, blue shift at off angles, and dull or lifeless colors on the display. This evening, Google has revealed some more information, and some solutions they are going to put into place in response to the complaints.
Now that our unit to review is here, I put together a short video on some of my thoughts after having it in hand for a little bit. There is a lot of controversy going on around the display right now, and I’ll dive into that a little more in depth as the week goes on for my full review but check out what I think about the device after having it for a few hours.
Feel free to leave questions here, in the comments on the video, or hit us up on social. Thanks for watching!
Even though my Pixel 2 XL review device has still not yet arrived due to the incompetence of OnTrac here in Southern California, what wasn’t delayed by almost a week was this case I ordered for it. The fabric cases are new this year, and offered direct from Google. There are 4 different colors, and while I’ve got a little bit of time on my hands waiting for my device to come, I thought I’d give a quick rundown on what these cases look like and whether or not you might want one for your new Pixel 2 device.
Since the news was so big, we had to get a video going to give you the rundown and our first impressions. Click on the link to get to our channel, watch it, and make sure you subscribe while you’re there!
Google Hardware First Impressions – via YouTube
Pictured is one of a number of leaks from the good chaps over at Droid-Life dot com, and this is the rumored Pixel 2 XL device, in a black and white colorway. One of the only bummer pieces of the leaked info is the starting prices – the 64GB version is rumored to start at $849, with the 128GB device going to top out at $949. Those are some Samsung prices right there!
Google has started to roll out advertising for their newest lineup of Pixel phones, and the date is now confirmed – October 4th will be the new Pixel phone debut. There is a bunch of billboard ads (like you see above) as well as a dedicated website (which you can find here) that gives us a teaser of what we can expect from these phones.
Just some of the features and specs we should see include: water and dust resistance, an improved (on an already great) camera, and some time of batter life enhancements, some of which debuted with Android 8.0 Oreo. Prepare yourself – this should be fun. I’m going to be like this guy below on October 4th apparently…
