    Is bigger better? I'm curious to hear what everyone thinks. Every time I pick up a smaller device, it just fits so much nicer in my hand. I really do like a larger screen though.

    I prefer the size of the Pixel 2, but that bezel is hard to get over...

    I prefer the design of the 2 XL, but the size is hard to get over ;).

    I have been to VZW and lived to tell the tale. And here's the skinny (pun intended). Compared to the Nexus 6 it's very one handable. Very sleek but tall (and .... well skinny), seems very solid and the texture on the body is quite pleasing. It's barely different feeling (size wise) in hand than the Pixel 2. It's funny, the Pixel 2 is about the same weight as my Pixel, the 2XL seems a tad lighter.



    I LOVE IT and now I am REALLY going to have trouble waiting nearly 2 weeks.

    Mine has screen burn in. Not sure if I should replace mine with a pixel 2 or get something else. Not really another phone I love right now. Hate to have a smaller screen with more bezels, though. Decisions...

    Getting an RMA. I like this phone enough to take a chance. While screen burn in is widely talked about, I haven't seen that many individuals complain of experiencing it. Hopefully it's still rare..
