Google Pixel 2 XL review: Promising phone with new caveats

 

Google's second-gen extra-large Pixel phone is its best, but the display leaves some bristling.

The Pixel 2 XL perks up the already excellent Pixel 2 with more screen space. It has a fantastic camera, waterproofing and the Google Lens feature that helps you learn more about the world around you.

The camera's Portrait Mode doesn't work as smoothly as its competitors' dual camera. Its battery doesn't last as long as others in its caliber and the phone has no headphone jack or wireless charging. The displays on some handsets have irksome screen...

A bigger, sharper screen and thinner bezels make the Pixel 2 XL the more desirable Google phone, but some early units have been dogged by screen issues.
