Google Pixel XL
The 5-inch Pixel is a great phone, and its big brother, the Pixel XL, is ever so slightly better. You'll get the same top-tier performance as on the smaller model, just with a bigger, crisper display and a more capacious battery to sweeten the deal. What's more, it's a little narrower and shorter than the iPhone 7 Plus, so it's a surprisingly easy to hold. It'll cost you, though: The XL starts at $769 for the 32GB model.

- 60AVERAGE USER SCORE5 ReviewsJeralyn40March 11, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Bought a Google Pixel XL new and fifteen months later it stopped working. I checked with Verizon who could not help me because the warrenty was only for one year. I checked with Google and the same answer. After checking to see what happened at Genius phone repair, they reported that the mother board was shot. So after paying $869 plus fot the phone I cannot use it and still paying for it. It was fifteen months old. Don't waste your money. Will stick to a Samsung Galaxy phone next timesel10January 11, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I bought google pixel phone by paying full money of $749 around December of 2016. By November of 2018 the phone would not hold on to battery power and try to create ticket with Puls expecting a support guy will show up. Got the appointment postponed around 5 times and finally they said "sorry we cannot send engineer to my house for fixing my pixel phone". Then created ticket with google itself and they asked me to take it to ubreakifix center locally and do complete diagnostic and ask the report to be shared to google. I did do around Jan 9th of 2019. Finally, called him lots of time and they finally said that they cannot fix the phone. The verdict on my phone was the mother board went bad. How come an mother board can go bad on a $750 google pixel phone so soon. Here afterwards I am never buying any android phone (that to particular any type of google pixel phone in my life). I am moving to apple iPhone. Google pixel phones are very bad quality.Charles90November 3, 2018Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Only phone I have ever liked.Doan Kim90June 24, 2018Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A valuable phone for daily use.An "iPhone" in Android world, a standalone from others.Engadget Reader70October 31, 2016Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A dependable product that doesn't really stand out from the competition. - Engadget
