Finally had a chance to sit down and really get into the new Google Pixel 2 XL. I was not at first optimistic about the device after hearing the myriad of issues plaguing the handset. These issues were mainly display related, with users claiming the display was not vibrant. Google has sinced released a software update to fix said issues by providing a new saturated color mode.
This 120 second review was done entirely with the saturated color mode on and it certainly makes a difference compared to what the display looked like before the update. Regardless of the issues it had with the display, the Google Pixel 2 XL is still an amazing smartphone and should still contend for smartphone of the year.
The Pixel 2 XL has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 12.2-megapixel rear camera, 8-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 3520 mAh battery. In addition, it has a 6-inch QHD+ pOLED display with 538 ppi (pixels-per-inch).
