Hey Marques, Thanks so much for the in-depth review! Really answered a lot of questions for me. Was hoping you could help me out with one last - Since you were talking about the less-saturated display, in your opinion, does the display hinder the camera aspect at all? I'm specifically looking at this phone for its camera (+ project Fi). Currently I have an HTC1M8, which is ancient in terms of modern tech, but at the time I bought it was the best phone camera on the market. (Yes, I've had it forever, I love it, shush.) I handle several social media accounts involving photos, and often play around with filters or basic photo editing before posting. Do you think it would just require a slight learning curve to not over-saturate things with the Pixel 2 display, or would you recommend getting a different phone altogether?

+Andrew Barber His insight may not be applicable to you btw because displays can be very finicky and vary from customer to customer.

I just ordered a black and white 2XL. I’ve used iPhones exclusively since the 3GS and always found it very limited in many ways. Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely a fan of iOS and iPhones in general but I’m excited to step out of that ecosystem and see what pure android has to offer. A bit of off-axis blue shifting is definitely not a big enough issue to avoid the Pixel in my opinion. There are so many more W’s in its column than there are L’s and if I’m going to sink my teeth into android, I want to experience it in its best form and be the first to receive updates when it inevitably gets better. I considered getting an S8/S8+ for a bit but after seeing how well tuned Google’s software experience is, along with a few other things I liked much more about the Pixel 2XL, it really wasn’t a competition in my mind.

My Pixel 2 (Regular size) has been one of the best phones I've ever used. Other phones might be prettier looking, have more camera lenses, offer more storage, or has a gimmick with questionable practice use. I prefer the smaller size because it pockets so easily and the camera system using Googles computational photography consistently produces better images than any other phone I've used and I store them on my Google drive space. No need to have a phone with more than 64GB if your all in on the google/android ecosystem. What are the down sides? The phones styling is a bit drab and utiliarian, the twin speakers produce clear detailed music, but does not get that loud, the upper and lower bezels are too big to make room for the speakers reducing screen size a bit. However, the actual experience using this device is so good, that you will be willing to overlook the down sides. It just works.

I remember back in 2012, 2013 or so, tech reviewers making a huge deal out of poor 'off-axis' or side views of a phones display when the content would get pixelated or just lost when viewed from the sides, and at the time this was a good reason not to recommend some phones. I remember the first Sony Xperia phones, in particular, getting totally hammered for it. MKBHD, you were one of those reviewers, and I don't remember a single tech-head on YouTube saying as long as you look at it on-axis it's not a problem... But you've said that about the Pixel 2's blue-shift, it's fine if you don't view it from the sides. Why..? Why are you giving this phone a pass when in the past you wouldn't let other phones off the hook..?

I really liked the way you explained the issue with the screen. You gave it all the time it needed and shared your own views. And on top of that you didn't say that nit picking was bad because "it's just a phone". Thank you very much for explaining the problem, and for really understanding those people who find the pixel expensive but still buy it expecting a perfect phone for his/her personal needs. For some the screen issue is no biggie, for others, it is and someone might not want to drop 800 bucks on an imperfect screen. So kudos to you for explaining it so so well😀

By the ways, I have always thought the design was so nice, and it is totally my type. I did not get the rave of the design of Samsung Galaxy S8 and shiet, cause they look just overly sleek and meek and typical for me. But the google pixel designs are always smooth, simple and clean. It gives this milky effect on setting your eyes upon the thing. Idk why reviewers always state the back of its design as a con, cause that is a PROOOO for me

Currently running my iPhone 6... Been staying relatively up to date with what Apple's been doing. Nothing I've seen so far has rocked my world enough to upgrade, and I'm genuinely impressed with how my iPhone has held up over the years. But I'm getting fed up with the little things. Examples: Instagram suiciding itself whenever I try to use the new features; I don't even use Snapchat anymore because of how slowly it runs; limited storage capacity and I refuse to pay for more cloud storage. After watching no less than 30 videos comparing the best smartphones, I think I'm going to pull the trigger on the Moto G6. At only $250, it will at least serve as a well-performing bridge until one of these phones really sets themselves apart to me. Mr Brownlee, keep slaying the reviews my friend!

I think an underrated aspect of the pixel 2 is the microphone. I'm not sure if I'm just used to having a bad phone, but videos from concerts in the front row a;ways have clear audio and not the speaker breaking blast of other phones I've had in the past. Definitely the best phone I've ever owned, even two years later.

Damnit. I was considering upgrading to pixel 2 xl, because I'm still on the OG and I firmly believe it's not entirely necessary to have the newest version if the previous is still good and will cost less. However, I use my phone A LOT for IG and colours are so important. Going into lightroom and dealing with that mess of not knowing what my edits are going to look like on other people's screens is going to drive me insane. This was so helpful in illustrating that!

I look forward to MKBHD reviews. I find they're more practical, less overblown or click-baity. Like with the display, he said it how it is. The color gamut isn't all there and other than prime viewing angles have a blue hue. But he doesn't blow it out of proportion like it's so terrible that everyone shouldn't buy it, like some reviews have. Keep it up! :)

oh please you wouldn't even notice this "grain" in the first place. And even in bed I'm looking directly at my phone. I have a 6P which has a limited viewing angle like MOST smartphones and it has never bothered me.

Scott Kepple not too sure of that. I don't own the phone but I use my phone at night for on average 2-4 hours in bed. Isn't that prime conditions for grain and such? I would imagine a non-trivial amount of people do the same.

Still rocking a pixel 2. Best Pixel ever released. Maybe 3a is competing but this has a snapdragon 8 series and best camera no doubt when it came out. Best Pixel

Bluetooth headphones are always a thing.. I have like 3 pairs and they're not that more expensive to regular headphones so it not having the headphone jack shouldn't really be an issue.

HTC U11 had the squeeze feature, nobody cared. Now it's loved on the pixel. LG G5 had a layer of polymer on the metal body and everybody hated it. Now it's loved on the pixel. LG (and samsung?) had the small window feature. It was considered bloatware. Now it's cool on the pixel. I love all of these phones but how is this a thing?

I'll trust you on most reviewers calling it a gimmick. I wasn't following the u11 when it came out. But Marques at least did no such thing. He asked "Is this a gimmick?" and then followed up that question with mostly praise for the feature. To connect with my original point, he also notes in this review that the squeeze comes with more intensity levels in the settings on the pixel. This is gonna sound like more of a stretch but there's an interesting psychology to restricting users to a specific feature. It makes it easier to understand and develop a relationship with that feature. "Squeeze activates google assistant quickly". Ironically giving people too much freedom can confuse them. Apple knows this well. And this seemed to resonate with Marques. Obviously power users don't care, like me. For them, the U11 clearly does it better. But power users also wouldn't care too much about the press's opinion.

Alex Manolache Google pixels are to other Androids what iPhones are to other smartphones. Implement features later, but better and get praised more than the original

veloxian The squeeze feature is way better on the u11, but people wrote it off as a gimmick. You could set it to launch the camera, take a picture, take a screenshot, bring up Google Assistant among other things. Google set it up so it could only launch google Assistant. How is it a gimmick on the u11 and not this google phone?

If I could, I’d switch my iPhone 6s Plus for the Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL in a heartbeat. It’s time for something different (and better).

How do you feel about the XL 2 screen being made by LG ? I have had many problems with LG hardware in the past, and have also heard the XL variant which has its screen made my LG is susceptible to many more problems. Any thoughts?

I’ve been switching between iPhone and android for years now. I’ve rocked an se off and on the last 2 years with an xz1 compact and a Palm in between. I’m super stoked to get the pixel 2. Just ordered it the other day. I feel like it will be a solid 2 year contender. Was wanting something smaller though and the razor kept catching my eye, but for 1,500 I think not haha. Was also thinking of the moto z2 force mainly because of the gaming mod but I think the pixel2 will be a solid beater phone with a rhinoshield case. Also thanks for all of your prospective view points on all of your reviews. Been following you for 3-4 years. Keep it up 👍

For people that are sad about the Pixel 2 support ending, with Android 10 and onward, you can get Play System Updates still (sent by Google to every Android 10 device), that contain security updates and bug fixes. You can continue to use your Pixels 2 just fine people

Got hooked up with one in the summer had an original Pixel before. The size difference took some getting used to and some newer features . Its been almost 5 months now with this phone. I love it. Won't be upgrading until it's absolutely unusable.

THE DAY HAS FINALLY COME!!! But seriously. I've been watching a ton of reviews as they were coming out trying to make a good choice but I always wait until your review drops before I make a decision about a phone. I think you have some of the best opinions and taste and I will always take your word on a phone. Thanks for all the effort you put into your videos! They have helped me a ton in making informed decisions for years and I will continue to base those decisions off of your input! Great work man! Big things!
