Pixel 2 XL vs Nexus 6P: Worth the Upgrade?



Pixel 2 XL vs Nexus 6P: Design

Pixel 2 XL vs Nexus 6P: Design

Honestly, the design of these two phones is fairly similar, although very different at the same time. Both use premium metal and glass materials, and both have a small panel of glass on the back near the top for improved WiFi and 4G LTE signals.  

These are two big phones, but one is substantially bigger than the other one.  

Thanks to slim bezels around the entire screen, the new Pixel 2 XL is actually smaller than the Nexus 6P. By almost a half an inch, if not more. Google returned the dual front-facing speakers in 2017, added water-resistance, improved the camera, and tossed in a large battery all in a smaller phone. The Nexus 6P is tall, wide, and heavy. 

In terms of the design, the Pixel 2 XL is the clear winner here. You'll enjoy better build materials, water-resistance, excellent sound, and a bigger screen all in a phone that's smaller and easier to hold. I just put the two next to one another, and it's a pretty big difference. 

If you want a bigger screen in a phone that's easier to use, get the Pixel 2 XL.

    After two years with the 6p i can confidently say : 1. no, battery doesn’t show sign of wear and holds up for extended use.
    2. The 6p is made with much better quality of production and materials, which makes it more durable.
    3. Pixel 2 xl got a bigger screen and that’s it, it doean’t look better and it is much more prone for shattering – lg really messed up this time.
    3. Google first announced the pixel 2 will come with a snapdragon 836 proccessor, which turned out to be a lie. Major downside for google and for me a reason not to buy their products.
    4. Back in the time up until nexus 5, google made sure the nexus will be the most powerful phone in the market for a fair price. today it’s just another phone, that costs like an iphone but shares the quality of a nockoff chinese galaxy s3.

    Bottom line
    You messed up google, you really messed up. And i’m looking at you too LG.
