To keep or not to keep.

Just like pretty much every other phone that's released, the Pixel 2 XL has had its fair share of ups and downs. The initial launch and the numerous display complaints left some folks with a bad taste in their mouths, but after Google addressed these issues and pushed out a handful of updates to the phone, it's now better than ever.

I'm sending mine back. It was definitely the best phone I've ever had no doubt about it. The problem is I picked up an Essential phone to play with and IMO it's 94% as good at what I use it for. I bought it on the Sprint deal for $225 total and it works great on T-Mobile as does the Pixel 2 XL. The problem is I don't think the Pixel is $700 better than the Essential phone. If the Pixel 2 Xl was a...


If you own the Pixel 2 XL, we'd like to know – Will you be keeping the phone?
