    I'm going to be using the little transfer adapter in the box to set up my phone. Curious to see if it ends up being faster.

    I used the adapter that came with my OG Pixel XL to transfer from my V20. Made setup a breeze.

    Outside of transferring your call and messaging logs I really didn't see it different than using the standard setup.

    Looking forward to receiving my 2XL this week. It's scheduled to ship tomorrow, and arrive Tuesday or Wednesday.

    Funny thing is, my Nexus 6 just received the 7.1.1 update. Must know that a change is imminent.

    Yeah baby, the Pixel 2XL is here! Was at the house when I got home from work. Setup was a breeze, and I'm loving it. Yes the of axis blue hue is there, but I never view it off axis so, makes no difference to me. Used the dongle for my ear buds this morning. Worked like a charm.

    I'm going to have to find an easy way to post pics, and will get a few up. Looks like the file size is too large.

    My Panda XL got delivered earlier today and got it all set up now. I have to say, I'm very impressed with this phone! Display is great imo, very crisp. Minimal blue shift and hardly notice it at all. Tried using it on "saturated mode" but put it on boosted after a while and I love it this way.

    Phone is stupid fast and smooth, more so than my original Pixel. No bluetooth issues like some have reported. Streaming and calls work perfectly and assistant fires right up with hey Google command while connected.

    Haven't tested the camera much yet but from what I've taken so far in low light, it's definitely the best I've ever used. This phone's a keeper.

    Finally.

    Glad you finally got it. Hopefully you end up getting a good one and not one you have to RMA. I'm thinking because of how long it took that you hopefully got the batch that was fixed of some of the issues.
