    Display? Hahaha really?

    Software is better on the OnePlus. It's what pixel offers and then some.

    It's just the camera which I'm confused about. I think I might give it a shot.

    Also, the alert slider! Such a good feature.

    It's the "...and then some," that many want to avoid. I've heard Samsung finally got the message and is cutting back on bloat.

    I got my Pixel 2 XL. I like it, and the camera is very impressive. Yet I still hear the OP6T calling my name lol. As a longtime Samsung user, I find it pretty frustrating not being able to hide the navigation bar to maximize the screen. Not looking to root my phone just for that reason
    You don't need to root to hide the navigation bar. Just use adb to hide navigation bar or full immersive with both navigation bar and status bar hidden

    Funny thing is, I'd become a stock Android or die kinda guy until I started using the Note 9. Such a great experience.

    Stock Android is extremely overrated.

    OnePlus is smoother and snappier with better implementation of everything.

    Samsung Experience is richer.

    iOS is well... iOS.

    Even the YouTube tech community has converged to this view.

    It's just the people who bought the pixel 3 who keep justifying it. It's a shame to see Google fans turning into...

    I wasn't about to buy a Pixel at full retail price. I love my note 9. But as a techie I get bored sometimes lol. At $475 off swappa I thought a 128gb Panda Pixel 2xl was a good deal for a backup/alternative, but I'm still tempted by the OP6T. I have a hard enough time justifying two phones to my gf, not sure how it would be getting a 3rd lol

    Ordered the OP6T yesterday. Giving myself the 15 day window from OP to test drive it and see how the camera with Google camera port works out, and plan on either returning it or reselling the Pixel 2XL I just picked up off Swappa. I think I have a problem lol

    Currently been using 6T for about a month. LOVE IT. what a smooth OOS.

    Found a great deal on 2XL 128gb Panda. So I will have that Monday. I didn't want to buy it but I needed to see for myself what's up with everyone going crazy about pixel 2nd gen camera.

    Was looking to get pixel 3 for the camera but this deal I found is so hard to pass. So much cheaper than pixel 3. So will be testing 2xl next week and see if it will convince me to switch from 6T that I really like.

    Make sure to use the Google Camera apk for the OnePlus while comparing both. I don't think you'll find much differences.

    With the stock OnePlus camera app you will see differences. Especially with the front facing and the portrait mode results. They're much better with the Google camera apk on the OnePlus.

    I'm in my 15 day return window with the OP6T, been testing the phone and camera like crazy. Even with the Google cam apk there's a noticable drop-off in picture quality. The back camera portrait mode of the Google cam apk doesn't work unless it's used on people, can't get blur effect on objects or my pets. I'm finding myself enjoying the OP6T experience more, but going back to the Pixel 2 XL for the camera. Having a tough time deciding on either returning the OP6T or listing the Panda Pixel on Swappa. The fact i paid more for the OP6T because of a steaI off swappa makes it more confusing lol

    I think that's where I am going to find myself next week when I get my 2xl Panda. I have been enjoying the 6T A LOT. that oxygen OS makes it a joy to use this phone.

    The camera is not bad by all means but man, put the Google camera on the 6T and this would be one killer smart phone.

    The way 6T runs, looks, and feels makes it so hard to out down. Let me know what you decided to do cause I will be in the same situation comes Monday lol.

    6T is one good phone.

    It definitely is a great phone even. And there are actually shots here and there that with blind testing I pressed the OP6T. But it's the consistency of the Pixel camera that is hard to look away from. I think if the g cam apk back camera portrait worked as well as it did on the Pixel (ie actually creating blur effect on pets/objects) I'd be leaning more towards the OP6T.

    Why is it so hard lol. I am also not impressed with the gcam port. Tons of issues with it still. I am selling my Note 9 for the 6T. Been a note user since the Note 4 and so regretting trading my Note 8 for Note 9. There is a major design flaw with the Note 9 model. I had to replace my Note 9 twice and replace the model, again, just last week at UbreakIfix. I am DONE. going to sell it for that. So disappointed.

    Was going to just stick with 6T and then a friend of mine offered me his 2xl 128gb Panda like new condition for $300. Getting that Monday and my life is complicated again lol. I should have said no, but how could I?

    Once I feel locked into one device, I start wanting to go back to the other, lol. Just a techie that wants it all I guess! You mind sharing what your issue with the Note 9 was? I also just went thru 2 rounds of ubreakifix repairs for camera issues (shaking/vibrating of the lens). Mine is now basically brand new on the outside, frame, camera module, display, etc, but with the same "guts". So far so good, knock on wood

    Yep, same note 9 camera design issue. When you try to zoom in or Live Focus, the camera gets stuck trying to move into place and it starts making a loud buzz noise and vibrates, making for a very wavey and/or blurred vision. Replaced 2 phones and made another repair for the 3rd, all with the same issue. It takes few weeks after the purchase for it to start happening.

    There is a long post on Samsung forum. My detailed feedback is on there as well as to some videos I caputered of the issue. I am done with Note 9 and honestly done paying $1000+ for a phone. If rumors are correct, note 10 is going to be north of $1,250 for base model. NO Way. Thank you.

    By that time, I would rather pick up a used OP 7 for more than half the price, or a used pixel 3 xl.

    Great. So you're saying it's inevitable and it's just a ticking time bomb for the camera to crap the bed again. How has this not become more publicized?! That's pure garbage for a $1000+ phone.

    Well, it happened to me 3 times. So I put my time in for this Note 9. I had enough.

    I'll be using 6T and testing 2 xl next week. I have 2 lines with TMobile, so it's just a matter of deciding which one my main number going in.

    Oh boy, just picked up pixel 2 xl. Dang, looks like a 1998 phone w.r.t looks in front of 6T. 6T is so sexy and modern looking, not so much for 2 xl.

    I am not sure about this LOL.

    Dual front facing speakers, LED notifications, and the camera. The biggest reasons I'm struggling with the decision and not quite letting go of the Pixel yet. That, and paying $100 more for the OP6T.

    I'm down to my last few days of the return window with my OP6T, and I remain torn lol. I'm loving OOS on OP6T, and the gesture navigation is fantastic. I'm also a big fan of the way OP maximizes their screen size. I can't stand the fact that there's no good way to hide the navigation control on the Pixel, and even if you can, many apps don't fill that space (like YouTube). However, it's hard not to notice the camera dropoff. I also take advantage of the dual speakers and LED notifications on the Pixel. And again, having only paid $475 for my Panda Pixel, I have to decide if the change to OP6T is worth $100 and then hope to sell the Pixel for as close to $475 to get that value back. What a time to be alive lol. Definitely not as easy a decision for me as others here.
