    can you believe it, some pixel phones are being shipped without any operating systems installed.

    This Pixel 2 XL arrived with no operating system

    There are very few bugs in these phones from what I read.

    The list of issues continues to grow. I hope they get their act together and the Pixel 3 is nothing less than an awesome device with no major issues.

    Having a 2XL myself I think a lot of the stuff is being overblown. Is the blue tint there, yup I'm not going to deny it and definitely a bad move. Is it as annoying as people make it to be, honestly eh, I mean you see it but mainly when you are on pages like the Google Now page with an all white background. Other than that I really do not notice it at all. The muted color thing...I actually love the display on the Pixel 2XL. Maybe throw just a little touch more color, but definitely feeling the color accuracy. And plus there is a way to do that if you so choose. I actually turned on the oreo color app and ended up turning it back off as I liked the color they way it was.

    The no OS thing was an isolated incident.

    If you have a 6P and you're looking for an upgrade I assure you the 2XL is that device you were looking for. I truly tell people to actually use it in person first as my entire opinion changed as I was on the verge of canceling my order.

    Good notes @pc747. I figured the no OS news was probably overblown, and my post here was meant as humor only. If I was in the market for a new phone the Pixel 2 XL would definitely be in the top 3 choices.

    overblown or not, some did receive phones with no operating system, just like some received phones with reject tags and some received phones with other issues. no matter what, this was not a good start for the latest models

    True, not the best start. But most consumers will never know this happened and will still buy the phone if they can afford it. Nerds like us here on tech Forums are usually the only ones talking about stuff like this.
