    Went with the Pixel 2 XL, and i should get it by 3 Jan. Also picked up a Ringke Slim TPU case. Both the phone and the case are black.
    Nicely done. Where did you get it from? New or used?

    Got it on eBay unused, so they can't call it "new". Guy bought it for his daughter, but she wanted an iPhone instead. ๐Ÿ‘

    This is so awesome! Hopefully you get your 2 XL tomorrow! Let us know how you like it! Happy Phone Week!

    Pixel 2 XL is up and running. Works fine, but i found two fine scratches on the front screen. I'd rather not return it, but i could use some feedback on how to eliminate them. One other thing. I like the LED light, but i wish i could change the color. As far as i know, no other email app will trigger the LED to go on. Much thanks for your help.

    I use Nine for email on a Pixel 2xl, and I can pick what color I choose through the Nine settings.

    I'll have to give that one a try. Gmail was giving me a pale blue LED flash, but then it stopped. Haven't figured that out yet.

    UbreakIfix stores carry some good $20 scratch removal kit. Works pretty good I just can't remember the name.

    Thanks for that. I wonder if anyone has found a fix for the LED blink light?

    Thanks, but i've tried all the "light managers" in the app store. Maybe if i root this puppy, that will do the trick?

    Nine works. Thanks. I've never paid for an email app, but there's always a first time. Don't know why it doesn't work with gmail, aquamail, bluemail, etc.

    Glad you got everything worked out! I use Textra for SMS; and their different LED notification settings for each contact is really awesome! I know you were referring me email, though; but just in case!

    Glad it worked out. I've used several email apps and Nine works the best for me. Lots of customization.

    I've got Nine for email, and Textra for texts. It's all good, but for some reason i can't get Nine to blink red. I do get the other colors though. That blinking red light is a holdover from my Blackberry days.

    My UbreakIfix store doesn't carry kits. They can replace the glass for $215.00. If the seller takes the phone back, i'll get another one. I may need some help from eBay with that. He described the phone as "unused", but the scratches tell a different story.

    Hmm, strange because I did buy one from them at the store back in December.

    Also, I am sorry about your bad experience but I NEVER buy phones off eBay. There are so many phones on Craigslist for cheaper. This way, you also get a chance to inspect the phone in person before you hand over your cash.

    My UbreakIfix is in Sarasota, Fl., and they don't sell kits. There may be one further away, but i'll wait until the whole issue is resolved. I will say that the phone itself works great. It's like my Nexus 6 on steroids.

    I'm too on the fence about both devices but I found a KILLER deal on FB market place and I think I'm going to go with it.

    I must admit I'm kinda excited
