Recombu

Too expensive and can’t match the competition in a number of key areas

from Recombu
While the Pixel 2 XL is certainly a solid all-round smartphone, there are a few little niggling issues here and there that drop it some vital points. We love the slick performance and fantastic battery life, while the funky design means it’s certainly a desirable handset. However, flawed video capture, half-finished software features and the debateable display all detract from the overall package... Full review
Alphr

Expensive, lacks key features and the screen is problematic

from Alphr
It’s a little disappointing that the Pixel 2 XL’s potentially most useful – and exciting – feature isn’t fully ready yet but, to be honest, I’m not at all convinced by the phone as a whole anyway. Yes, it has the latest, fastest processor inside it and, yes, it’s a competent all-round flagship smartphone... Full review
Expert Reviews

Display issues drag the phone back from greatness

from Expert Reviews
Sure, it has the latest, and greatest processor on-board, and includes the best smartphone camera to date, but its lofty price and poor video capture quality means Google’s plus-sized Pixel 2 XL is certainly not a phone I can recommend. At least, not in its current state... Full review
TechRadar

A really impressive smartphone with an absolutely killer camera

from TechRadar
Despite losing the cherished 3.5mm headphone jack, the Pixel 2 XL makes up for it in spades with a mix of unique and sought-after features like a stellar design, waterproofing, Active Edge and a truly impressive camera... Full review
The Inquirer

Oreo flagship impresses with its market-leading camera and blazing-fast performance

from The Inquirer
In fact, the Google Pixel 2 XL is arguably the best Android smartphone on the market right now thanks to its blazing-fast performance, slick Oreo OS and 12MP single-camera that, somehow, manages to outperform even its highest-specced competitors... Full review
Android Police

The best gets (mostly) better

from Android Police
The Pixel 2 XL is the phone to get right now, provided you can live without a headphone jack. It has the best software, camera, and update prospects of any Android device. The regular Pixel 2 has all that too, but it's not as attractive with those big bezels. That's by no means a deal breaker, though... Full review
IT Pro

Arguably the Google phone Android fans have been waiting for

from IT Pro
The Pixel 2 XL is the best pure Android phone in the market with a smarter Google Assistant and a large curved screen. Unfortunately, the display is a nasty disappointment, with poor viewing angles and dull colours which keeps Google's phone from achieving greatness... Full review
Tech Advisor

Better in almost every way

from Tech Advisor
The Pixel 2 XL is a fantastic phone. It’s well designed, well built and looks great. The screen issues could put you off, and don't forget there's no headphone socket or microSD slot... Full review
Yahoo Tech

Android phones done right

from Yahoo Tech
I’m particularly fond of the Pixel 2 XL thanks to its gorgeous design. I do wish the Now Playing option was more consistent and am disappointed that Google is making consumers switch to USB C headphones without including them in the box like Apple... Full review
USA Today

Proves how good Google has gotten at hardware, bolstered by artificial intelligence and software

from USA Today
Although it is not perfect, the Pixel 2 XL is a strong upgrade over Google’s first foray into producing its own phones. While it lacks some features found on other top phones from Samsung and Apple, photo buffs and Android fans will be very pleased with what Google’s done with the Pixel 2... Full review
