    The stability on the Pixel 2 is insane.
    Agreed. That one video on AC while in the car is nuts. OIS + Software stabilization seems very impressive.

    If you watch the video review from AC they show them filming in the car on the phone then they show what the phone recorded.

    Ah right. I'll have to rewatch it, which I'm not opposed to. Hahah

    Wait until they activate the *Pixel Visual Core* SOC in 8.1.

    According to her Twitter, she won't be receiving her Pixel until tomorrow. Also keep in mind that Erica usually waits until she has had the phone for a few weeks to post a review.

    With all these reviews videos finally up, it'll give me something to do at work tonight, as long as it's slow.

    Thanks for letting me know! And yes! I love that Erica posts "long term" reviews of the devices. Her reviews are the ones for which I actively search for.

    Just in case you change your mind, or to offset any chance of buyer's remorse? 😊

    I agree with you @Morty2264. I like that her reviews are both in-depth and well informed. I also really like Michael Fisher's as well. He just cracks me up sometimes too. 😂

    I have noticed just about every reviewer talking about good to very good battery life on the XL. That is music to my ears, and a bit unexpected I have to say. A nice surprise if this turns out to be true long term.

    This is an excellent Wired review that came out an hour ago:

    https://www.wired.com/2017/10/review-google-pixel-2/

    You guys are rubbing off on me–in a negative financial way. –I was going to wait until Black Friday so see what S8 or Pixel 2 deals were to be had, but I've almost pulled the trigger on the Pixel 2 five times in the last two days in reading the various Pixel threads.

    Now where did I hide my credit card . . .

    I'm torn right now. I was all set on the smaller pixel until the reviews uniformly called it "dated" design. I'm also unsure exactly what the new hardware gets me versus what android 8 provides. I need to get to the Verizon store again to check out the hardware now that I'm familiar with the software.

    I understand that, I was just messing with you. I ordered last night, even though I was all set to wait for at least a month. I'm cruising reviews too. If I'd ordered a day sooner my delivery would have been Oct 28-29, but that's pushed out by a week now.

    I thought–and think–the same thing. I really dislike the iPhone-like legacy bezels–and that's my main gripe with it–but I just purchased it anyway, for all the other reasons. I'm thinking of it like the phone version of the Saab 900 I used to own. –Many people thought it was a goofy design and always wanted to know why the ignition switch was between the seats, but I really liked it in all of it's odd presentation.

    –At least that's the theory that I'm going with . . . ;-)

    Have you seen this review that was posted last night?

    The thing that struck me there was the effect of the launcher on the wallpaper, and how much of the bottom of the display was faded by it. Well I'm going to use Nova as per anyway, so that won't be a problem for me.
