    I will say it pulls data over LTE faster than my Turbo which usually ran ~52 down and 8 up.[​IMG]

    While I don't have the XL, I just threw on a pair of Polarized glasses and checked my regular Pix2, Galaxy S5, Turbo, and Zenpad tablet. Both AMOLED devices worked great in both portrait and landscape. The LCD panels suffered as I rotated the device.

    I think its an inherent difference between the two display technologies.


    Funny side story - Several years ago as flat panel computer monitors were coming in their own, we outfitted our hydrographic survey boat with a pair of very nice (and expensive at the time) flat panels. Well I had one young survey technician come in complaining that WE had to buy new monitors because the ones on the boat didn't work with HER sunglasses. :rolleyes:

    Waiting to hear your results and those of others. I live very rural and work is sketchy so strong reception is a major concern of mine. I remember reading people having reception issues with the first Pixel.

    I'm coming from the Nexus 6, and the new radios are unbelievable. I couldn't hold 4G at a window in my building, now I never lose connection even in the middle of the building. Not sure what they did but it's heaven.
