    So, you would recommend I trade in the Pixel XL I just received as a replacement for my 6P. Verizon is offering 50% off with the trade, unfortunately it's drawn out over the 24 month payment plan (contract).

    I never experienced the original Pixel so I can't comment on that part.. I think if you get a good phone without issues this phone is exceptional.. full screen and front speakers with better camera improved on many parts.. That's if you don't get a bad phone as some reported... Also I heard some were having issues but Google Store also has trade in value.. Which model XL do you have now?

    I traded the OG XL and I'd say it's worth it

    I just received an XL 128g to replace the 6P I've had since launch with the battery issue.

    The XL is nice, but newer should be better. I see The Google store is offering $410 (assuming you get the full value) and that makes the XL 2 very tempting. Just wish there weren't all these negative stories which I'm thinking are exaggerated but....

    Yeah it's tough bc there are also positive reviews and myself along with others I know have no issues.. Slight blue tint is not even a problem on my phone when shifted..

    I would say this pixel 2xl would be a better deal despite my rant.

    The blue really is not that bad and I've used my phone all this will work it lying flat on the table.

    Though I still stand by Google should not have allowed this phone released like this at that price, I am agreeing with BK the the shifting is not that bad and hardly noticeable at times.

    Interesting question. I have on video where all my phones (nexus 6, Nexus 6p and pixel 2xl) are lying flat and the one on video with the tint looking blue is the Nexus 6p.

    But I think a lot of me even noticing is because it was pointed out. Beforehand when I played with it in Verizon holding it I didn't leave thinking about the blue tint. I guess it's like a scratch in an area on your car that no one else notices but once you see it and point it out it becomes an eye sore.

    The reason they went with LG was because there was such an uproar for them to give LG another shot. Outside of this LG has had an impressive run with the Nexus line. I still have my Nexus 5 and I'm for one was one who hit that feedback button suggesting it last year. And looking what the HTC version may have become, HTC U11+, I'm glad they went the LG route. I just wish they would have pushed for the Samsung panels.

    You take the off axis blue tint out the equation and the Pixel 2 XL is by far the best overall phone out. Because those muted color complaints just got somewhat quieted with the latest update. I'm definitely digging the look as it looks more like a phone in line with the trend vs the large bezels that HTC seems to continue to push on their phones.

    To quote a YouTuber (Flossy Carter) "when Apple starts doing...."

    The fact even Apple went bezel-less and if Google would've repeated last year and put out another 2 flagship phones looking dated with large bezels I would've been ragging them harder than I am about the color shift. So good move by Google going LG, bad move allowing LG to continue on going with their panels after they saw the blue color shift during pre-production.
