    Oh and in between for a couple of weeks I used a Note 8.
    An absolutely gorgeous device.
    Just a tad bit too big for me.
    I think with that device you feel like you have a $1K phone.

    How did you like the camera on the Note 8 compared to that on the OG Pixel?

    I would say that they're pretty comparable. I didn't play much with the zoom functionality with the secondary camera.

    The in hand ergonomics of the Pixel 2 are miles ahead of those for the original Pixel.

    I'm very happy with my choice.

    Pixel 2 - First day experience.

    Backstory - I finally DID it. Sold every other phone I had. The only backup device I now have is a Lumia 925! I just reset the Pixel XL that I used for 15 days and packed it to ship it out.

    Mini review will be posted first week in December. Next week is Thanksgiving and following week I am in Minnesota for work.

    Okay, so on with the initial experience.

    Size - Despite being a smidgen taller, this phone feels better ergonomically than the original Pixel. It could be due to the fact that it is slightly thinner and there is no slope from bottom to top on the back cover. Also the case I have is probably the best thin case I have found. I would have liked for them to have stereo speakers and a small chin top and bottom like the Pixel 2 XL though.

    Screen - No issues. For that matter, I didn't have any issues with the OG Pixel screen as well.

    Speakers - they sound great. No issues. As I said before would have liked a smaller bezel (chin) top and bottom like the Pixel 2 XL.

    No headphone jack - biggest gripe. Google's dongle isn't great compared to Apple's and is expensive. Also for some bizarre reason the phone doesn't like my Motorola USB-C dongle. Go figure. I am currently charging my BT headphones and will provide an update about that later. This is probably the biggest disappointment so far.

    OS - Fluid, fluid, fluid. This is is definitely snappier and faster on Oreo compared to the OG Pixel. I would say the experience on this device now closely rivals what folks get on iOS and ifruit devices.

    Camera - no test driving yet.

    Google Assistant using the squeeze function. I can see the benefit of it but so far have mistakenly activated it a couple of times. If it gets annoying then I will turn it off.
