Release Date & Price
Last but not least, is the release date and price. And sadly, Google's phones aren't budget friendly like they were a few years ago.
Google's new Pixel 2 smartphones hit shelves on October 19th. You can get it from the Google Store, Best Buy, or Verizon in the United States. The Pixel 2 XL with 64GB of storage is $849, and the 128GB model is $949. It's an expensive smartphone.
You probably paid $499 or $549 for the Nexus 6P. So yes, the new Pixel 2 XL is nearly double the price.
What potential buyers need to decide is if everything the Pixel 2 XL has to offer is worth that price. You'll enjoy a bigger screen, faster performance, a smaller phone that's easier to use, and one of the best camera experiences on the market.
Personally, the camera, battery life, and future software updates are more than enough that I made the switch, and most would recommend you do the same. Now that you know what makes the new Pixel 2 XL special, decide if you can afford it and buy one today. Here are the latest Pixel 2 and 2 XL deals.
