Of all the phones talked about in the Android Central forums, one that seems to get some of the most discussion is the Google Pixel 2. The Pixel 2 is not a perfect phone, but it's the one that I (and many members of our little community) choose to rock on a daily basis.

One forum user created a new thread saying that they currently own the Pixel 2, and while they like it, are thinking about making the jump to the larger Pixel 2 XL. Here are some of the top responses.


I've had both and prefer the regular. It's all subjective. But for me I like the smaller form factor and the smaller has a nicer screen in my opinion. I had horrible blue shift on all 3 Pixel 2 XLs I tried. My coworkers and friends have models with much less blue shift. My opinion might be different if I got a perfect 2 XL but alas, I didn't get one. I love the size, weight, and capabilities...


I'll take your Pixel 2! 🤣 In all seriousness though, if you are wanting some peace of mind and are willing to switch, go for it! See if you like the differences that the 2 XL have to offer. And, if something happens that you do not, at least you know for sure! Let us know what you decide!


I went from the Pixel to the Pixel 2. I have no regrets over the move and no regrets for not getting a Pixel 2 XL. I won't use an expensive phone without a very good case and the XL with a good case is a big item. I like the slightly smaller Pixel 2. The camera is a hoot. A few years ago when photo software started handling DNG files I tried it out but the wait between shots was horrible. Now,...


I've had the Panda Pixel since it was released and I ordered the smaller Pixel. I really liked it but for me it just came down to battery life. Both are great but my office has not the best reception and the smaller Pixel would make it till I got home but I would have to charge it before bed. This is not the case with the larger Pixel. so sent the smaller one back to Google within 14 days.


Now, we want to hear from you – Do you prefer the Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL?
