    If you have the September 5 update, you can quit looking for new ones. That's the latest release for the time being. Unless of course you sign up for the Beta program and grab the Developers Preview.

    I'm not having any issues with the beta if y'all interested might not be a bad thing but if not I'm sure it's updating soon..

    Do you have AOD on? I don't ever see any screen flicker.. And fortunately no burn in yet.. I do have immersive mode and on 8.1 the nav keys dim

    Really? My Pixel XL and 5x both have Security Patch Level: Oct. 5. I don't think I am in the beta program, but if I were would it be device dependent?

    . I hope, but don't trust. My co worker has a 6P on Fi which was stuck on Pre-Oreo until last week when he switched to a different carrier's Sim card and immediately got 8.0. I'm worried same here.

    AOD on sometimes, off usually. The flicker happens either way when I press the power button, but seems to only flash without interaction when AOD is on.

    Had some time to look and spend in Best Buy with the Pixel 2XL. With the 18:9 screen it's slightly taller than my Nexus 6, and noticably narrower. Set at same brightness level and font size (for these vintage eyes ) I love the way it sets up.

    The screen is whiter, though I noticed the off angle blue. Not a deal breaker. Love the colors displayed. IMHO, they just look truer. Smooth moving through various sites, and the pages set up the same as my Nexus 6. Love the feel in my hand and the texture of the rear cover. Though I will have a TPU case on it.

    Not due to ship til the 13th. Looking forward to it.

    I was reading comments along those same lines somewhere else wanting a lawsuit to force Google to change the screens on the 2XL.

    If it was an issue where the phone was malfunctioning and burning down people's houses then yeah lawyer up. But because you don't like the screen quality, yeah that's not lawyer time. What you do there is what I did with last year's pixel, you don't buy it or return it and wait for the device you want.

    7 hours left on 29 percent???? personally I would not trust it. I don't like my phone to have less than 50 percent especially if I would not have access to a charger for a few hours.
