    Hi all,

    I am new here. Recently bought a Pixel 2 XL, yes made my switch from IOS to Android. It's definitely a little getting used to. But want to learn more from the community here. Hope I am also able to contribute some.

    Nice to "meet" you all.

    Welcome along...the 2XL will certainly be a bit different from IOS but I`m sure you`ll soon get used to the new OS and really enjoy using your new phone

    Thanks a lot everyone. I always like a stock Android, can't stand Samsung or any other Android phone (I am sure others have different opinions and I respect that).

    I am liking it so far, the Freedom to do whatever is really cool. My last Android was a Samsung S III. Since then it was only iPhone.

    The camera on this Pixel 2 XL is AMAZING, may be better than iPhone X. Just one think, wish Google puts a little more effort in the eye candy department, otherwise all good (so far).

    Welcome fellow Pixel 2 XL owner! I've had mine since it was released 6 months ago and it's been superb. And you're sure not wrong about the excellence of this camera!

    By the way, I was very dishearted for not getting a headset with such an expensive Pixel 2 XL. I knew it doesn't come with one in the box before I bought it, but still. I use the headset of my old iPhone and it's control button functions to change sound tracks forward and backward don't work on Pixel 2 XL as they are supposed to

    Is that the stock iPhone headphones? I have Bluetooth and wired and all controls work on mine. I guess it's another reason why apple are getting more and more frowned upon, they keep you very closed in to their ecosystem. Welcome to pixel tho, it's fun playing with it.

    Yes it's the stock iPhone headset from my iPhone 6s Plus which has the 3.5 mm audio jack that fits very well with USB-C headphone adapter that came with Pixel 2

    Welcome to Android Central! I use my buds from my iPhone 6s with my Pixel 2 all the time, but I also use Beats bt buds when I am working out or hiking. They both work fine.

    I also have a Beats BT headset that I use during workout, also LG HBS BT headset for all day use, they both work perfectly fine. But there are times when I prefer wired headset over BT, for example when I am flying and when laying in bed at night. For those times, I use my iPhone's stock headset, works fine but some functions don't work, for example, tap center button three times to go back to previous sound track.
