    Nope not yet. But will probably stop in this weekend to see what they have in stock for cases. I can get a discount in-store on accessories through the company account.

    Ok, so I just went in the nearest Verizon store and they had both the Pixel 2 and 2 XL on display. Wasn't able to play with the 2XL much as it wasn't charged and as soon as I put the screen on, it gave me warning and it shut off. Was able to take this pic though:

    Asked the girl working there if they could get it charged and she said "just play with the regular Pixel 2. They're the same thing just smaller."

    I just said ugh, ok. Even though I wanted to say something else to her regarding their differences. lol

    The Pixel 2 is actually quite nice. Just too small for me. The bezels weren't too bad as most people think. Was very fast and fluid as expected of a Google phone. Couldn't take good pics with it as it was connected to an alarm system that covered part of the lens.

    The 2 XL was very nice in the hand. Very close to the same size as the original Pixel XL. More screen less bezels but I wish the screen wasn't as curved as they are. I'm thinking Tempered glass protectors are going to be a little troublesome... I ordered PET screen protectors for mine already and I think it'll be enough as long as it's paired with a case that has good lip/screen protection.

    I'll try and go to a different Verizon store later on.

    @bkdodger what are your thoughts on the curved glass? I wasn't expecting it to be that curved tbh.
