    After 3 months, I still feel this is the best phone I've owned.

    I can't, they're almost $900, no way I'm ever getting one of those for my birthday or Christmas.

    It was even a stretch to get this Lenovo Tab 4 10 which is $128 or something like that.

    Not between the pixel and the pixel 2, but the pixel 2 xl and the pixel 2

    Basically just the size and the XL has an annoying blue tent to the screen you can't get rid of. It's the reason why I didn't get it

    I got mine as a manufacturer refurbished for $507 on eBay. Looks in perfect condition too.

    Best phone I've ever owned, people think It's crazy but I really love the bezels on the pixel 2. Plus you can get it on online stores such as amazon, Ebay, google store and more.

    I just got a mint condition Pixel 2 64GB on ebay for £400 GBP. Going to see how its 2700mAh battery performs against my OnePlus 3T's 3400mAh. Initial thoughts though, I really like the size and weight of it.

    I haven't set it up properly yet, but booted it up and it installed two security updates, but I didn't notice the unlocked bootloader warning until after the first security update restart.

    From what I can tell, everything is stock, otherwise I don't think it would have received these OTA security updates, and I just need to lock the bootloader via ADB, which I must do, as I have no interest in rooting and I want all apps to work, such as Google Pay. Hopefully it's an easy process, otherwise I've got 14 days to return it, as the unlocked bootloader was not mentioned in the listing and I'm not familiar with using ADB. Glad I've still got my Windows 7 netbook.

    Relocking the bootloader will reset the phone, so back up first.

    Thanks for the heads up! I had read that would happen, which is why I held off setting it up with my Google Account once I saw the bootloader warning.
