    Curious to see how the "saturated" mode will look like. And really cool on the 2 year warranty. Most people don't keep their phones longer than 2 years so everyone should have piece of mind.

    Beat me to this by 7 minutes...... Kudos for the extended warranty. That's worth a chunk of the $129 for Google Care excluding the accident /damage coverage

    Pretty cool. Maybe that will help with some users .

    I also think next month the KRACK WiFi issue should be fixed as well.

    More from Google reported in the announcement : software updates will include fade out of nav buttons and notification bar color matching to app in use. They say their tests do NOT indicate burn in (screen aging) being any worse than "other premium OLED screens", but making changes to address concerns.

    I think the software updates are great ideas in the first place.

    My concerns have evaporated. I was fatalistic, planning RMS as needed. Now, back to can't wait for my XL to arrive with pure excitement.

    Definitely confidence-inspiring.

    Later batches should also have displays with better manufactured quality, so if that’s the case, all is well.

    Fast response, give the masses what they want and throw in an extra year for the warranty. Now hopefully everyone will SHUT IT and enjoy their phones. Me, I'm still waiting on mine

    Glad I opted out of an extended warranty...2 years is great, and I am loving my XL, no signs of any screen problems for a week now. I'm still looking for my microscope so I can identify Alex's burnin.

    I'm on 8.1 now...So the nav bar dimms right down.

    Earlier this afternoon I watched a Tim Scofield video about the DP of Android 8.1 on his OG Pixel XL where you could see the nav buttons fading after a few seconds so this has already been implemented.

    Why would they change their *manufactured quality* if according to their statement that this is a non-issue?

    Just because some dufus on tweeter posts a gray test screen doesn't make it an issue in real world usage.

    Yeah but you can't run over it with your car 2 times like I can.

    I'll look into square trade possibly but I don't usually damage phones

    Wow, impressed at the quick response. This will really help with resale value too. More reason for the haters to hate the Google Pixel. Ha they can have their beautiful curved screen.

    Great response from Google and yet another reason that software before hardware works so well for the Pixel brand. Function over form! You can adjust things OTA, but you can't move bad placement of a Fingerprint Scanner no matter what!

    Random off-topic question here but I'll ask because I recognize a bunch of you from the LG G6 forum . . I'm wondering about the front firing speakers, it would seem to me that if I were holding the 2XL in landscape mode I would be covering the speakers with my thumb, have any of you experienced that? Thanks (I live far enough from a Verizon store that it will be next week before I can play with one) . . .

    I just saw a story about this and a link to the proof. Google are extending the warranty on its latest phones.
