    Will the big brother of Google's new line of phones take your fancy over the little guy?

    If you're sold on the smaller iteration of Google's new devices, hit up this thread to share your opinions: Will you choose the Pixel over the Pixel XL?

    As someone with a 5.3in phone already, there is no going back to something smaller. To me it's the perfect screen size for the pocket I use to keep my phone in but going from 5.3 to 5.5 shouldn't be too much of a difference in width. If I finally have to get a belt holster then so be it I guess.

    My VZW store was supposed to get demos today. I will try to take a look tomorrow, but I am leaning to the XL

    I would go with the Pixel XL if I were purchasing a phone this year. A 5.5" screen is what I've been waiting for, of course it comes when I'm not in the market...

    I have a couple reasons why I wouldn't. Though the Pixel XL is the exact size I've been waiting for, the 6P, although on the large size, isn't bad. I've become adjusted to it. In the short reviews I've seen about the PXL, there's nothing I really desire so much that I feel the need to sell the 6P. I wish battery life were better on the Nexus, but that's my only gripe at the moment.
