The Pixel 2 XL is the newest flagship released by Google along with the Pixel 2. It's pretty much the same phone as the Pixel 2 with a bigger display.
Pro The Android ecosystem is perfectly integrated with this phone
Google uses the Pixel line as a platform to show off their operating system instead of treating the software as a second-class citizen and it shows. The Android ecosystem, starting from Google Assistant is perfectly integrated with the hardware. By using the same technology as HTC which lets users squeeze the sides of their device, you can bring up the smart assistant at any point, even with a locked screen (of course, you have to unlock the phone to give the assistant any commands). This is a welcome change for people who disliked the "Ok Google" command.
Pro Takes some of the best pictures on a smartphone
The camera on the Pixel 2 is one of the best cameras on the market. It takes amazing pictures both on low and well-lit conditions.
The camera software is where it truly shines though. It's able to automatically adjust the focus and lighting so you never end up with photos that are too lit or too dark. It also manages to find out where the edges of an object are and blur them accordingly.
Con Battery life might not last a full day of heavy use
Even though the Pixel 2 XL has a slightly larger battery than the Pixel 2, it has a larger screen which draws more power.
Tests show that this phone's battery lasts an average of seven hours of relatively heavy use (using mobile data, sending messages, browsing the web and watching videos).
Con Not much of an upgrade from the first Pixel
The Pixel 2 XL is not much of an upgrade from the first Pixel; the hardware is almost the same and the new software updates will be available for the new model soon enough. Outside of a few gimmicks and the removal of the headphone jack it's virtually the same phone.
