Pixel 2 Xl Buy
To pixel peepers -- anyone for whom screen quality and color accuracy is a top priority -- these issues can be irksome, and if having a superlative screen is a priority for you (and that's totally fine if it is), I suggest a few great alternatives below. That includes the smaller Pixel 2, which has the same camera features, software goodies and processing speeds as the Pixel 2 XL, but uses a different AMOLED screen.

The Pixel 2 XL has a 6-inch, 2,880-by-1,440 OLED display, for 536 pixels per inch (ppi). It's the same resolution and pixel density as the V30, though not quite as pixel dense as the slightly smaller S8 (570ppi). According to our own tests and experts we've consulted, the screen isn't the finest on the market, but it's fine. It's not nearly as bright as the screen on the Galaxy Note 8 or Galaxy S8, and its colors tend to be a bit cool and bluish. But performance is entirely within the acceptable range.
Google also manages to do bokeh Portrait mode with the single camera sensor through software. We took a photo of a heavily bearded GSMArena editor, and it worked pretty well, but stray hairs behind other hairs tended to be blurred out as part of the background. It's not perfect, but it's also not worse than on dual-camera phones. Bokeh works with the 8-megapixel front camera, too.
This is one area where the bigger Pixel leaps ahead of the smaller one, though. It's hard to tell the difference between a 440ppi screen and a 536ppi panel with the naked eye, but it gets much easier when you're wearing a VR headset: Daydream on the smaller Pixel looks genuinely pixelated, to a distracting extent, while it's acceptably fine-grained on the Pixel 2 XL. You see the biggest difference in text. Words appear to shift and pulse distractingly on the smaller Pixel, making it a slightly unpleasant phone to use for VR.
The panel is a 6-inch POLED produced by LG with QuadHD+ resolution (i.e. 2,880 x 1,440 pixels) and 18:9 aspect ratio. The resolution is great for enjoying multimedia content such as photos and videos, although we can hardly ever enjoy the full range of colors this display is capable of.
The front camera is 8 MP with f/2.4 and fixed focus. With regard to the rear camera, Google opted for a single 12.2 MP sensor and f/1.8 aperture. In both sensors, the size of individual pixels is 1.4μm, but the rear camera has dual pixel technology, which is used for PDAF focusing (helped by laser) and bokeh effect application without the need for a double camera.
When taking a picture in portrait mode, the camera is able to create a depth map of the scene by calculating the differences detected by the two adjacent pixels in the sensor, which are then processed to blur the background into the picture. The front camera also has this mode but uses a different and less precise system. The process is much more complex than that, and an in-depth study of the subject will certainly come.
We want to add some info regarding the blue tint that some of you have been asking about. The slight blue tint is inherent in the display hardware and only visible when you hold the screen at a sharp angle. All displays are susceptible to some level of color shift (e.g. red, yellow, blue) when viewing from off angles due to the pixel cavity design. Similar to our choice with a cooler white point, we went with what users tend to prefer and chose a design that shifts blue.
Ever since I got my pixel 2 when I log a walk it doesn't accurately calculate distance. Fitbit is about to lose a customer if they can't get their act together. Also, the posted solution isn't a solution, unless you are saying the solution is to dump my Fitbit.
Why is this listed as solved, when it's clearly not????? Just bought the pixel2xl only to discover how far behind Fitbit had been in making the charge 2 compatible. My husband and I have been longtime Fitbit customers who are now forced to buy a competitor fitness tracker to replace our fitbits. Too bad, both of us have bought the last 3 Fitbit models over the years. This is crappy and stupid way to lose customers, especially given that you've apparently known about this issue for awhile and still haven't fixed it, and don't even have a published ETA. Ridiculous.
I've had this problem for the past few days with the Google pixel 2 it wouldn't sync with WiFi but I just synced it like 5 mins ago and it worked ! I'm over the moon right now. Unlucky if I doesn't work but try with Data. Good luck 041b061a72
