Pixel 2 XL revisit: 4 months later

by birtanpublished on September 2, 2020

All right so it's been a few months since Google released their second iteration of the pixel with all the noise and drama surrounding the two excels the screen quieting down we thought we'd catch up with the to excel to see how it's doing four months later

Well since release Google pushed out a screen color profile update to appease those who preferred more saturated colors because as we know the phone released with a very flat more natural-looking color profile without

The ability to change it of course there was the display graininess color shifting burnin and overall quality just wasn't up to par and something that's interesting is that this here is my second pixel to excel I ended up

Swapping it early on for one with a more recent build date and yes the display turned out to be a bit better than the first one I've even heard of people swapping there's multiple times and getting slightly better looking displays

Every time I don't plan on doing that I am quite satisfied with the one I've got but the display has never been that big of a deal to me I will admit that if this phone had a display like something you'd find on a flagship Galaxy device

There'd be no question where this phone stands among the competition but the thing is for a lot of people including myself we already consider this to be the best Android smartphone and some would say that it's deep fast a

Smartphone period as of right now although Google took a few steps forward and a couple steps backwards there's no arguing with this phones excellent user experience with superior speed and fluidity a clean and simple user

Interface great battery life front-facing speakers water resistance and what I consider to be the best cameras on a smartphone even the phones design while it may not be as flashy as something like the galaxies or even the

Essential phone it's still kind of nice and the phone feels pretty good in the hand it's well-built and it's solid although I do prefer the way the phone looks with D brands red dragon skin just looks so sick link in the description if

You're interested in date today use the phone still performs very very well and will continue to do so for a long time I'm sure I mean if I'm being honest the first generation pixel is a phone I'd have no problem sticking my SIM card

Into and use for a while thanks to up-to-date software a nice screen and of course those cameras oh and the headphone jack and that definitely looks to be a big selling point with the pixel line of phones and that's some longevity

The pixel doesn't drip with features like a lot of other phones but it still has a nice selection of features some of which are so simple yet they're fun to use and you really like having them around things like now playing the

Fingerprint down gesture a are stickers google lens fast charging front-facing speakers the list goes on with Google's focus mainly being on software you see that effort when using the phone as your daily driver it's the little things that

Count and over time you really continue to appreciate them obviously no phone is perfect and over the past few months the pixel has shown that it's not immune to slip-ups and some weird things happening but what I will say is that out of all

Of the phones that I've used since October and even before and you guys know I've used a lot of phones the pixel two is the phone that's been the most consistent across the board and it's the phone that I can always count on and

Don't even get me started on those cameras do I even need to talk about these the cameras are absolutely outstanding and somehow they've gotten better especially for certain social media applications like I said in my

Galaxy note 8 revisit I said that would be pixel to excel I am way more likely to take a picture whether it be a random shot of something and even a selfie then I am with any other phone with other phones there'll be

Times we're all opted not to take that certain picture because I know it just wouldn't come out looking that good but again with a pixel that is not the case and pretty much every situation I have all of the confidence in the world that

These cameras will get me the shot I'm looking for they're that good with the pixel google has made it quite clear that it's about functionality over fit and finish I have no issues with that and I guess it depends on who you ask

Because a lot of people prefer the feature-packed flashiness of the galaxy line but if you're in the market for a new phone and you're looking for something that just works something that'll provide you with an excellent

User experience something that will last you a long time and something that well has the best cameras on the smartphone then the pixel to excel is still what you should shoot for you really can't go wrong with it so what do you guys think

Of the pixel 2 XL now personally it is still one of my favorite phones and will continue to be so for a very long time let us know your thoughts down below in the comment section as always we love to hear your feedback but anyway that does
