    So now that the leaks are happening, what would it take for you to not upgrade to the pixel 2(xl2?)

    It's a done deal for me. I'll buy the big one and I'm 90% sure I'll be a tester for the small one again this year.

    Larger one does look nice from leaks. Sad the smaller one is going to have those same huge bezels and design as the original

    I still don't mind that design, although I would prefer that there be a speaker on that bottom bezel instead of black space. Obviously the industry is going towards taller with smaller bezels though, so hopefully the small one catches up next year to that trend.

    Hmm, they'd have to catastrophically screw it up for me not to get it.

    Performance issues, camera worse than current Pixel, battery issues, screen is really bad or has an astronomical price.

    Otherwise, it'll definitely be my next phone.

    Agree. I hope next year they go back to them being the same outside of screen and battery size.

    Dual rear cameras and no headphone jack are why I won't switch. I need the headphone jack for work purposes when I work from home so I can have both hands free. It's literally a deal breaker and I know eventually I'll have to snag a bluetooth accessory w/ headphones and mic but for now, my 6P is just perfect still. I'll stick w/ it.

    You could have both hands free with a bluetooth set as well though. Seems the headphone jack is a dying breed. You could always use the adapter(dongle lol)

    I wasn't planning on getting one due to budget restrictions. But given what i have heard about so far, I would probably get this one. Who knows? I might get it anyway...lol

    Going to get the XL, I had the small Pixel, saw the Galaxy S8, fell in love and bought it. No way I am going back to those humongous bezel of the small Pixel2. I just do not understand that design decision. But I am going to def preorder the XL2.

    Agree. I think that people who have seen/experienced a new samsung/lg won't want a device with the huge bezels anymore.

    If there isn't a significant improvement with the standard Pixel's hardware/design, I'll stay with the one I have until 2018.

    Honestly, I love the Pixel software and all things being equal on the hardware side I would choose Pixel over Samsung. So the XL 2 is pretty much a lock for me. The only issue for me is that I am used to slightly smaller phones and do not yet know if the XL 2 is larger than the S8 or the same size.

    The new nokia's look nice. Especially if they go back to the zeiss camera lens like rumored.

    I'm still just "thinking" about it

    I wish the smaller model was more like the XL 2 (as the Pixel's were last year)

    The way it stands now "if" I did decide to purchase one it would be the XL 2

    The only way I wouldn't go with the Pixel XL2 is if they get rid of the headphone jack. I know you can use bluetooth, but my 2011 Honda only supports bluetooth for phonecalls. Thus if I want maps or music to go through the car speakers I have to plug in the headphone jack.

    I am not going to buy a new car because I replace my phone so that is my one requirement.

    Headphones/aux port still work with the same type of adapter that Moto, Apple, LG, HTC, etc use.

    It for sure does not have the 836, because the 836 doesn't exist.
    It for sure does not have 6 GB of RAM, which doesn't matter because it's definitely not needed.

    You might want to wait until next year's devices when the 845 launches in the spring if the 835 isn't good enough.
