Verge review is out biggrin.gif seems like a great phone. Only con is the lack of headphone jack and the hoops you have to jump through to get one in Malaysia

Love the hardware, software and especially the camera, tempted to get one but the large bezel makes me think again. Already used to s8+ thin bezel. Lol.

Thank god, the pixel 2 xl finally had the features that im longing for replacing my nexus 6p.
stock android, hdr+ camera, front facing speakers, water/dust resistance.

Drawback is lack of headphone jack, pricey not available in msia, poled not as good as amoled.

Always like stock android by google. But the price is to steep. Unless selling it officialy here & have good after sales service then can swallow a little bit of that premium price.

same here. Pixel price was thru the roof for me. I'm expecting the same for pixel 2. its a pity. the price is driving a lot of potential away.

the only other for "near" is HTC or u get Oneplus.

Agreed.
Unless
Telco bringing in this phone. Hard to justify a purchase with no official after sales service on top of that high price point and accessories concerns. The price for 2 xl is around 4.2k according to techbug

cant seem to decide between the two units, i prefer the look of the pixel 2 XL, but then the AMOLED on the 2 is supposedly better than the washed out POLED on the 2 XL. And then comes the price tag of the 2XL which is rm900 more than the 2. Im not sure whether the nicer aesthetics of the 2XL is worth that extra rm900.

Never used android phone before this year wanted to buy pixel 2xl over iPhone x.

Whoever bought the pixel 2xl please tell me if your set have the blue tint issue? Tilt left right up down see it at different angels many reviews on YouTube spotted this issue.

Otherwise I would have just went ahead and get one. So maybe iPhone for me again this year dry.gif

And if u have one please tell me where u bought it and pricing . Only pixel 2xl

Personally i dont really concern this kind of level test abuse. Nexus 6p also fail these bend test but no one ever complaining their phones broke into half.

Htc10 pass this abuse test and the youtuber also said htc10 got best quality durability material. But no one buy a phone because of that, overall experience is much more important

Great point! The user experience, to me, outweighs more. rclxms.gif

Obviously for any phone geek, care for their devices is paramount. Which is why there are accessories to complement the device while protecting it.

argh. i'm very interest in pixel 2 xl but apparently this display issue is hindering me from buying one. Just awful man.

I dont mind losing headphone jack but the most important element is still the display. Lack of saturation is fine but the burn-in and color shifting when tilted for a rm4k device.. I don't think i can pull that trigger lol.

So close to a perfect device sad.gif

Same here....i wont mind about the colour shift since i wont be looking at slight tilt angle but the burn in is kind of serious issue to me (I mean like after several days usage as some reported, imagine would have to return the phone and no phone to used)....that hinders my purchase on google 2 xl too and it looks like more and more problem popping out from pixel devices (New issue such as audio problem should and also black smear)

still monitoring how google would respond to the issue, google should had gone with HTC built instead of huawei built.....

Smaller brother kena high pitch and clicking sound as reported and published by android authority.

as quote

QUOTE
beginning with the audio, there are dozens of reports hitting the internet about high-pitched noises and clicking from the Pixel 2 when it’s next to a person’s ear. This has appeared in the Google product forums — the company is aware of it — and it seems to be mostly affecting the HTC-made standard Pixel 2 rather than the Pixel 2 XL


Those of you who brought pixel 2 beware:

As quote by android authority

QUOTE
it has been reported that a Pixel 2 unit was sold to a customer “As New” despite failing testing due to cosmetic damage. How the mix up happened isn’t clear, though the customer is to receive a replacement device and $10 Google Play credit for the inconvenience.

Correct.

Only T&L has the Pixel 2 model on sale available at:

1) Qoo10 - RM3,175 after using the RM400 voucher (https://www.qoo10.my/item/RM-3175-FOR-PIXEL-2-64GB-RM-3914-FOR-PIZEL-2-128GB-RM-400-COUPON/557281348?banner_no=204810)

2) Lazada - RM3,399 (https://www.lazada.com.my/google-pixel-2-64gb-lte-black-ready-stock-113151075.html?spm=a2o4k.seller-1316.0.0.5670355aNcMtG6&ff=1&sc=KSQF&mp=1&rs=1316). They have 8 SKUs in ready stock as of today (26 Oct).

T&L is still sourcing for a supplier for the Pixel 2 XL model from UK/Europe. It's best we wait for them to do so in order for us to make a price comparison with other local resellers.

For those sitting on the fence - since the Pixel 2 XL is plagued by hardware related issues (blue tint screen) and screen burn in that software alone will not be able to resolve unless Google & LG decides to release a new batch of "defect-free" P-OLED screens in the future, the Pixel 2 might be a good option to consider if you can live with a 5 inch screen, a smaller 2,700mAh battery and large bezels.

Update: I just made a purchase for 1 x Black Pixel 2 64GB unit from T&L. I expect it to arrive within 5 working days. Looking forward to it.

Great news for Pixel 2 and 2 XL owners!

I might consider purchasing a Google Pixel 2 XL with confidence after this official statement by Google on the deliberating hardware issues.

TL:DR

- a new mode for more saturated colors, which will be made available via a software update to both Pixel 2 phones in the next few weeks (maybe with Android 8.1 update)

- differential aging is in line with that of other premium smartphones and should not affect the normal, day-to-day user experience and there will also be software updates to optimize it further

- every Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will now come with a 2-year warranty worldwide

It’d be great if Pixel 2 XL would be brought in officially by LG My. Finger-crossing for it to happen.

Yeah, wonder if Google can struck a deal with LG & HTC to take care of P2 & P2XL after sale/service respectively. That includes selling the phones officially in Malaysia.

Ah, how I wish.

Great news for Pixel 2 and 2 XL owners!

I might consider purchasing a Google Pixel 2 XL with confidence after this official statement by Google on the deliberating hardware issues.

TL:DR

-  a new mode for more saturated colors, which will be made available via a software update to both Pixel 2 phones in the next few weeks (maybe with Android 8.1 update)

- differential aging is in line with that of other premium smartphones and should not affect the normal, day-to-day user experience and there will also be software updates to optimize it further

- every Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will now come with a 2-year warranty worldwide

I've been on stock android ever since my first android phone, which was Gnex. Then upgrade to N5X, awesome camera, good performance, nice screen n front facing speaker but then bootloop cry.gif

Heard Pixel 1 got quite a few problem, like faulty microphone, battery 30% shutdwon, halo effect and got chance to bootloop too (is this true?)

So consider S8 since if anything happen easier to get spare part here, and also due to the design n decent camera.

But my heart is really telling me to get to Pixel. But I usually use phone for 2-4years, not sure if the Pixel can serve me that long sad.gif

I would suggest to wait a while then grab Pixel 2 to get better software updates since the phone is 1yr newer as u expect a long usage. Another point to consider is we are not sure how long has the AP company stocked up the phone. It could be a long manufactured batch which the battery could have been manufactured quite a while ago. This also factors to the fact that in 2yrs, it could be hard to get a battery replacement once the hardware is End Of Life (despite Google still delivers android updates up to 3yrs)

My Pixel 2 (64GB) Black has arrived.

Below are some quick impressions after spending a quick 15 mins with it:

Ergonomics:

- Simple to hold in one hand coming from a Google Pixel XL model
- Easy to type with one hand

Build Quality:

- This thing feels solid in the hand like a brick with no moving parts when squeezed or pressed (Kudos HTC!)
- The back material is aluminum but because of its plastic outer coating, it has a nice smooth "sand paper-ish" texture to it that feels grippy

Haptics:

- It has been improved significantly over the Google Pixel XL's vibrator
- To describe the sensation, it feels very similar to the iPhone 7/8 Plus's taptic engine. A sharp and medium vibration is how i can ascribe the feeling on the Pixel 2
- Rear centre finger print scanner is fast. Much more faster and precise than the Google Pixel XL's

Screen:

- My unit (thankfully) doesn't exhibit any of the over-sensationalized screen gate issues i.e blue tint at 15 or 20 degree angles, no screen banding or black crush when viewing black objects after conducting several screen tests using Display Tester App (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.gombosdev.displaytester)
- Vivid mode is set on by default. The colors do indeed feel slightly muted/warmer compared to the vibrant Google Pixel XL's (with sRGD set to off) screen but my eyes will eventually get used to it
- I will monitor closely for the next 5 days to look out for screen burn in/image retention (fingers crossed it does not occur)

Speakers:

- These speakers get really loud at full volume and are very skewered towards treble and mids. Bass isn't very strong and punchy
- Media volume control now has 25 steps versus 15 media steps for most Android phones making volume adjustments more precise to avoid those troublesome "sudden leaps" in volume gain/drop
- Compared to my previous Nexus 6 and Moto X Pure dual speakers at full volume, the Pixel 2's are subjectively not as loud as them if i recall

Camera:

- I'll post some comparison pictures later but i do not expect it to be leaps and bounds better than the OG Pixel XL's camera. I think it may have a slight edge in low light thanks to its EIS + OIS

Let me know if you have any questions and i'll try my best to answer them during my free time. I hope the above prelim information will help others make an informed purchase decision.

Below are some photos next to my Google Pixel XL for comparison.

buying from local seller most likely the cheapest option.
i think one seller sell pixel 2 for RM3199 which you might pay more than that if you buy on your own and ship to malaysia.

Hi, how do you compare the screen with LCD display? Been using nexus 5 and not keen on Samsung amoled display....feel a bit cartoonist....not to my liking.....

It's probably too early to at this stage to tell if the Pixel 2 or the Pixel 2 XL is susceptible to boot looping. If i were you, i will avoid buying a LG made phone at all costs - which includes the Pixel 2 XL model which was manufactured by them.

However, there have been some unfortunate users on Reddit sharing their lemon/defective units:

Good question.

I'm personally a big fan of big screens (i.e anything over 5.5 inches - 6 inches) and most of the phones i've had in the past (Nexus 6, Moto X Pure, Nexus 6P, etc) had fairly slim bezels to actual screen size ratio.

Now with the Pixel 2, i thought that i will be distracted by the thick upper and lower bezels but i've changed my mind - i'm actually liking them. More so, given that its a AMOLED screen plus having a default black wallpaper makes the bezels blend into the screen seamlessly as though they don't exist. Ergonomics-wise, the bezels help when holding the phone in landscape mode. No accidental curve edge screen phantom touches.

Samsung screens are well known for their oversaturated displays that make pictures look surreal or cartoony like you mentioned. The Pixel 2 is also using a Samsung AMOLED screen however because Google set sRGB mode as a default, colors appear to be much more natural and i dare say true-er to life colours.

Hope my above reply helps.

As promised, below are some comparison shots between the Pixel XL and Pixel 2 in the following scenarios:

Scenario 1: Pixel 2 Portrait mode vs Pixel XL's Lens Blur mode using a toy camel as a subject.

Scenario 2: Pixel 2 HDR on vs Pixel XL HDR on in a complex low light with many glaring lamps park landscape photo (notice the lens flare in the Pixel XL where the street lamps are. The Pixel 2 however, doesn't suffer from this artifact).

Note: Photos taken are unedited.

Which Pixel do you think performed better?

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL sports a F/1.8 versus it's predecessor's F/2.0 aperture creating a more shallow depth of field and taking in more light.

I don't think either model has changed in the focal length department. As the comparison shots were taken by hand, i could have orientated my shot ever so slightly slightly to the left for the Pixel 2.

DXO mark (take their synthetic scores with a pinch of salt) doesn't point out any major difference in focal length either when taking portraits - take a look at the Pixel 2 vs iPhone 8 vs Pixel 1 comparison pictures of the model (https://www.dxomark.com/google-pixel-2-reviewed-sets-new-record-smartphone-camera-quality/).

How about Pixel 1? Is it prone to bootloop as well?

Yes, if you're extremely unlucky or you tinkered with the system files.

Below are some unlucky cases where owners of the Pixel 1/XL experienced boot loops. The simplest solution is to contact Google support to replace the model for you if your unit is still under warranty:

Those are shipped out from Google to US address. Not sure whether starting to ship yet to Malaysia. Good bet we might hear they get their units around next week.

Yes, I originally purchased my defect-free OG Pixel XL from T&L previously upon first release and also recently, my Pixel 2 (it's been defect free so far which is great).

Their customer service is responsive. If you cannot wait, i suggest you to purchase from them.

If not, i suggest that you wait for Singtel in Singapore to sell it off contract (give them awhile to do so) or their AP sellers such as WhyMobile (http://www.whymobile.com/home.php) or Red White Mobile (https://redwhitemobile.com/) to bring it in.

Are they local or foreign shop?
Since now pixel 2 has 2 year warranty
Can we just send back to lazada to claim warranty or ship directly to t&l shop?

Just a piece of advice for those considering/have already purchased the Pixel 2 XL (not the smaller Pixel 2), do remember that you are taking an informed risk (aka phone lottery ticket) buying a phone that both media and end users have reported multiple known hardware issues such as:

1) Heavy blue tint when viewing at wide angles (especially obvious with white backgrounds)

2) Screen graininess at with screen brightness set to low on white backgrounds)

3) Screen burn in after a x period of time

If you are lucky to receive a unit that is defect free from the above 3 common hardware related issues during your 1st week of ownership, great!

But if you are one of the unlucky ones to receive a unit that has all the above, be prepared to waste weeks (if not 1 - 2 months) & frustration in returning your unit for an RMA through your trusted local reseller who honors returns the first time round for free.

Even with a RMA, you may potentially receive a lemon unit or hit jackpot with a "perfect" unit.

Being an early adopter will always come with a small percentage of risk but if you acknowledge this and can handle the consequences that follow at a hefty USD850 price tag, you have nobody else but yourself to blame. smile.gif

1) Heavy blue tint when viewing at wide angles (especially obvious with white backgrounds) - It is unavoidable, we all know every XL 2 phone have them, so had to live with it those who are ready to buy XL devices but our eyes will get used to it after sometime of using it

2) Screen graininess at with screen brightness set to low on white backgrounds) - based on the review, you had to set it really low to get those screen graininess...if you using a normal brightness condition, it wont be noticeable ( unless your nit picking on it or purposely looking for it), i believe this is unavoidable too.
Here my take on those 2...not sure about burn in though...just mix in bag case but i believe google is doing some update to reduce the burn in effect

nope. I schedule my blue filter from 12am to 6am every night.

I bought a tempered glass from techbug, but honestly, the quality is quite poor. As I don't have any casing yet, I applied clear coat / mobile outfitter for the back and edge side for temporary protection against scratch.

Congrats on getting your Pixel 2 XL! Fingers crossed that it'll be free of any problems!

It looks like your unit doesn't have a very strong blue tint which is great!

P.S: I've seen a couple of videos/read user feedback that battery charging on the Pixel 2 XL is relatively slow. Almost taking 2.5 hours from 0% --> 100%. Can you kindly confirm if this is true in your case?

Additional reading that battery charging on the Pixel 2 XL:

"the HTC Pixel 1 Mini used multi-stage Li-Ion rapid charging. Two stages of constant-current, followed by a final constant-voltage stage.

However the LG Pixel 2 XL uses a SINGLE stage of constant-current, followed by constant-voltage. This seems far less "optimized".

Hey guys, I'm total noob when it comes to customs and stuff. I have got a friend in states and he's ready to help me buy and send Pixel 2 XL. But he asked me "what about customs in Malaysia?" To which I've got no idea. So I'm asking your help - what would happen if he was to buy one and send it to me through courier? Would I need to do some customs clearance stuff or what? Please help me. Never done these stuffs before.

Apply Sirim online or go apply at custom counter.

QUOTE(benny888 @ Oct 31 2017, 04:27 PM)
Sirim usually will only take most 2 days if done online. Walkin application within hours. There is also 6% GST to be paid based on phone declared value and courier charges

There's 'high chance' that kastam will hold your parcel, you'll need to pay SIRIM and GST.

Since send by your friend, he/she could try send it back as 'phone repair part' etc ( might escape SIRIM and all )
and declare it at much lower value like RM900 biggrin.gif ( so if kena GST also pay lower )

P.S: I've seen a couple of videos/read user feedback that battery charging on the Pixel 2 XL is relatively slow. Almost taking 2.5 hours from 0% --> 100%. Can you kindly confirm if this is true in your case?

Additional reading that battery charging on the Pixel 2 XL:

"the HTC Pixel 1 Mini used multi-stage Li-Ion rapid charging. Two stages of constant-current, followed by a final constant-voltage stage.

However the LG Pixel 2 XL uses a SINGLE stage of constant-current, followed by constant-voltage. This seems far less "optimized".

Nope. My Pixel 2 (thankfully) doesn't have any of the 2 above issues. It only affects some models (if you're unlucky) - not all.

Thanks! Yeah thank god.. buying device nowadays is like a lottery lol.

The charging is definitely slower after 65%. Google implemented it to preserve battery lifespan maybe because all the nexus6p battery kaput fiasco. With 3yrs of update promise, surely the battery need to be at least survive that long.

I'm on the fence about the implementation for battery. I think it is ok. If there's any custom kernel providing tweaks to buff it, I'll give it a try but the stock charge speed is reasonable enough. Gonna miss dash charging on my 3T surely.

Talking abt Google "throttling" batt charging to increase the lifespan on batt... I don't see OnePlus is doing it and their products are just fine. I'm jealous with my wife's OP3 btw.

Dash Charge is a different implementation where the heat is at the charger, not the phone. So that helps to help to reduce the effect compared to Qualcomm's fast charge. Google is pushing for the Power Delivery standard and new pixel 2 users are among the first to be lab rats unfortunately of this new standard

GST is inclusive when use forwarder. Bought electronic items once and pay tax in advance. So you don't have to worry about import tax and gst when courier arrive to your doorstep . Add SIRIM fees, still inline with the rest of bulk sellers, who don't provide any personal warranty. Only thing is, dealing with SIRIM may be a hassle.

I would like to share my personal battery life/consumption for the Pixel 2 (not the Pixel 2 XL).

In summary, battery life has been incredible for a 2,700 mAh battery.

It's on par with my OG Pixel XL (3,450 mAh battery). For comparison, my previous record for my Pixel XL was 7 hours 9 min SOT with 17 hours 19 min standby at 6% battery left remaining.

My default settings are:

- Location set to ON
- Bluetooth and NFC set OFF
- Brightness set to 30% with Adaptive Brightness set to OFF
- 2 x Google accounts in active sync
- Google photos backup set to OFF
- 60% LTE and 40% on Wi-Fi throughout the day
- Wallpaper set to black for AMOLED screens
- Silent mode set to ON

Below are some screenshots for reference.

I bought tempered glass from techbug, but apparently it doesn’t fits well, common for earlier batches of tempered glass.. however i have clearcoat / mobile outfitters installed so now stick with that temporarily.

For case, i purchased google official case from techbug and despite it is a lil bit on the pricey side, is excellent!

The camera on the Pixel 2 with OIS + EIS is just a minor upgrade from the Pixel XL (EIS only), in my opinion.

Where the Pixel 2 outperforms the Pixel XL is in low light shots with OIS.

You may refer to page 5 of this thread to view some comparison photos i took in low light between the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL.

The camera on the Pixel 2 with OIS + EIS is just a minor upgrade from the Pixel XL (EIS only), in my opinion.

Where the Pixel 2 outperforms the Pixel XL is in low light shots with OIS.
