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.

Google Pixel 2 XL review

 

A flagship smartphone with many flagship features, but it's let down by so-so audio.

Smart design ; Flagship spec and features ; Natural OLED images ; Superb camera ; Very fast

Average audio ; Video lacks a little detail

The Pixel 2 XL has some neat features, scores highly for usability and has a great camera – but you can get better audio

Google Pixel 2 XL review: Conflicted start transforms into confident update

 

After a rocky start, Google's tweaks have given the Pixel 2 XL added appeal. Now with got Android Pie and Night Sight, it's a great phone.

Solid build with IP67 waterproofing ; Good battery for all-day performance ; Great camera performance in most conditions (now with Night Sight) ; Display's saturated mode gives the look we wanted at launch

Design doesn't make best use of space (large bezel) ; No 3.5mm headphone socket ; Camera white balance inconsistencies ; No microSD card slot ; Default screen display not the most exciting

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 the 18:9 display format, as it's quite large with big bezels, but at its heart this is a powerful pure Android...

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 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.

The Google Pixel 2 XL is the cheapest it’s ever been

 

Save £380 on a Google Pixel 2 XL at Argos

The handset on offer is a SIM-free model, meaning it doesn't matter which mobile network provider you use. We’re not sure how long this deal will last, so hurry.

Google Pixel 2 XL review: Google’s supersized, bezel-less flagship

 

Here's our official verdict on the Google Pixel 2, which has one major issue

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: Bigger, better?

 

After using the Pixel 2 XL as our full-time handset for several days, here's what we think of Google's mighty updated smartphone.

Premium performance ; Two-day battery life ; Slick design ; Perfect photo capture

Screen issues ; Software needs some love

While the Pixel 2 XL is certainly a solid all-round smartphone, there are a few little niggling issues here and there that drop it some vital points..
