    All the Verizon stores in my area now carry 128GB Pixel XLs in stock, which is a first for this device. I've been interested in trying out the Pixel. Is it still worth getting when the new one will be out in only a few months?

    Yeah I'd wait. The Pixel will likely plummet in price once version 2 is out.

    Maybe get it now then sell it down the road if 2nd Gen. is worth getting?

    It's an awesome phone! I can understand the "I want it now" attitude. I'd be more inclined to say get it now and sell later if you want the Pixel 2.

    For years I've had an Android phone and an iPhone. When the Android slowed or bogged down, I'd return to my trusty iPhone. No more! The Pixel pulled me completely away from Apple. iPhone 7 is on eBay now. The Pixel is smooth as silk and has never glitched or stuttered on me. Best phone I've ever had. And I've had a lot... Probably too many. At least that's what the wife says.

    I'd still say yes. I didn't hate my Pixel by any means.. I just can't buy it again. I have a thing about buying a phone I've already bought.

    I'd say get it now, the 2nd gen is about 4 months away. The experience u get is awesome, fast performance, nice battery and probably the best camera. It's the best phone right now, and if u like the 2nd gen sell the pixel and get it. It's worth it, believe me

    Just got mine. Head and shoulders above this Note 3 in anything I've looked at.

    Maybe find a used one on Craigslist to tide you over till the P2 comes out. I just got one to replace the Samsung S8+ and the Pixel XL is just so much better overall. The only things I really miss from the S8+ are the gorgeous screen and the IP68 (given Vancouver's weather, that is sorely needed). I hope the P2 is water resistant like the S8+, because that would be just perfect for my needs.

    I'm always in the "buy" mind set! Buy now, sell sooner. Get the latest and greatest.

    After how much you bad mouthed it when it came out at the time you had the s7 edge, now you want it!!!!?????

    I would not get it now when a new one is coming out soon. I had it and loved it but felt that it was an iPhone without iMessage and FaceTime. I figured I may as well have the iPhone

    Haha! Back at it?!

    I'd say get it now. Until Sunday if you use Google financing you get $75 off in two months. Which is basically two months worth of payments free. Keep it mint and you'll be able to get a good chunk of what you owe back when you get the iPhone 8 or Pixel 2 in the fall.

    For whatever reason the pixel resale value is not good. You can get a used XL for $475. I don't think it is worth buying now

    The recent sold average on Swappa of Google edition 128gb XLs is $698. Looks to me like they're holding some value.

    Yeah. These phones have surprisingly held their value well. It's one of the only Android phones I've seen do this well. They're pretty much on par with used iPhone 7 and 7 Plusses.

    I was going to wait until October, as I had a company S8. Work contract ended and I had to get something now, so got a Pixel 32GB. Will keep this phone for 3 years if the battery doesn't give by then. I've always wanted a stock experience because I hate the amount of duplication and bloat on what I had before. Depends on if what you have now is good enough to keep you going for 4 months, but you won't regret buying a Pixel XL now I'm sure.

    It's definitely a great phone. I picked up a 128gb Pixel for a good price and I love it. Stuck my iPhone 7 in a drawer. I also added a Type C wireless charging receiver to my Pixel so now I have wireless charging. Works great. Excellent phone.

    Formerly during the "golden age" of cell phones I bought a new phone every 4 to 6 months. I panted for the newest features. And I'm not a techie.

    No more. Phones have reached such durability and sophistication that I'm quite content to hold on to the S8+ for 12 months.

    Verizon is offering the Pixel for under $20 a month. I am considering it. I will probably want the pixel 2 but it will be much too expensive at first. A year after Pixel 2 launch when the price comes down I will get it.
