Is the Google Pixel 2 XL best Android smartphone money can buy? We find outNov 09 2017 By Nitansh Rastogi
It’s hard to believe that the world of smartphones is just a decade old. In such a short span of time, the way people communicate has changed, and for a large chunk of people, smartphones are their only way of accessing the world wide web. While Apple claims that its latest, the iPhone X (first impressions) – represents the future of smartphones, I believe Google has managed to play catch up fairly quickly. In just its second generation, the Pixel 2 XL solves many of the issues we had with the first-gen offerings. The best part is that the search juggernaut is following Apple’s playbook – combining both hardware and software to deliver a seamless experience.Related read: Google Pixel 2 XL vs Samsung Galaxy Note8 vs Apple iPhone X: which is the best flagship this year?However, with prices starting at Rs 73,000, there’s no denying the fact that the Google Pixel 2 XL is an expensive proposition. What’s more difficult is that apart from its cameras, there`s no defining characteristic in the smartphone that’s not available with the competition, since its software features would be rolled out to other Android devices sooner than later (Google Assistant has already started recognising songs playing near you, although you need to activate it with your voice). The Samsung Galaxy Note8 (review) isn’t just cheaper by almost Rs 7,000, but also offers S Pen and dual cameras. Apple’s iPhone X is also a tough rival, boasting similar features such as a bezel-less display and stereo speakers, and while it’s expensive, the fact that it’s already out of stock at most places suggest that it would set cash registers ringing for the brand. In a way, Google’s latest offering also faces competition from devices such as the OnePlus 5 (review), which provides similar hardware at almost half the price, and would soon get an iterative upgrade in the form of the 5T, which will be joining the bezel-less bandwagon. On top of that, the Pixel 2 XL is riddled with quality control issues (apart from the things mentioned above, several consumers reported that their units shipped without any OS).So where does all that leaves us? While it might be difficult to recommend the Google Pixel 2 XL wholeheartedly, it’s a perfect example of a smartphone that stands out on its own without needing to follow the competition blindly. The phone is worth considering if you’re looking for a premium offering which doesn’t compromise on many aspects. Add to it the fact that the phone comes with a two-year warranty…. which certainly trumps the competition offering the standard one year warranty.
A fantastic phone.... Using it for 3 months now no signs of slowing down.. get the latest Android.. a fantastic camera.. unlimited Google photos storage (it's far more useful than u think), a very good battery life.. easily get through a day of power use... and a whole bunch of other fun stuff.. Please note: The screen is a tad below the mark... U will find blue shift when u tilt the screen.. it doesn't bother me much... But I can imagine it being a deal breaker for some.. but if you are going for the Google software experience... Nothing else beats it.
My Issue:- Phone charger never really worked for my brand new phone . Out of box issue for a phone that still less than a month old. Imagine my disappointment after dumping old faithful iPhone and eagerly Preordering the phone, waiting weeks of delay in shipment, over coming scepticism around 'Blue screen tinge' and other issues only to get a out of box faulty device. Google's Resolution- After multiple calls and followups, i get back a old and dirty charger. Is it unfair for customer to ask the replacement part to be at least cleaned properly and be handed over . B2X guys just reached out into his pocket and took out this charger and gave it to me. No packaging and no box nothing. What I did not like (a) Complete lack of Customer Centricity - they took 3 weeks to just give me back a dirty charger.That too after multiple (almost daily) calls to google support, escalation to to Managers at google support. (b) Delays in communicating to customer- Nobody at google support could really find out what caused a delay of so many weeks in getting me back my charger. What was surprising is that Google was not even able to communicate to me reason for the delay.on 20th I get a email confirming I will get my charger back and it takes another week and multiple calls from my side to get it back (c) Over dependence of Google on 3rd party providers:- Google sells Pixel phone though FLipkart and services though B2X and both these companies let me down. First Flipkart delayed my "Pre ordered" phone by more than 2 weeks and then B2X shoddy service just kills the enthusiasm of this new phone. My phone calls to Google support made me realise that all Google guy can do was call up his counterpart in B2X and request them to expedite or raise a complaint at their end. None of which works and it leaves the customer feeling helpless. Conclusion- Very good phone but extremely poor service.Google is years away from catching up with Apple in India.Pixel buyers are usually come from a market segment of knowledgeable customers and we have options with us while making a buying decision. A good hardware with poor service is not what helps you win market share. Unless Google invests in opening it's own stores, Own service centers or atl east strong control over service providers then no one will make a repeat purchase. When Google says India is a market which is important to them then please listen to your customers.
