    ...anyone recently upgraded to a new phone similar to my 6P? I`m in no hurry at all to take my due upgrade but as its being paid for ,I might as well have it. I`m NOT replacing my 6P(no way!)but would like a phone as similar as possible to what I have,anything which might improve on my 6P. I know its quite a tall order to best this phone but all replies would be gratefully received,thanks,David

    Pixel 2XL is probably the closest. Maybe a Huawei Mate 10 pro, but that only has a 1080p screen.

    Also look up the LG V30. One of - if not "the" - best and even cheaper than a Pixel 2 XL.

    I 'upgraded' to an LG V20 (although one of my daughters is using it ATM) - it's a nice inexpensive upgrade from the 6P.

    Thank you for the prompt replies.. I've narrowed my choice to 2 phones, the pixel 2xl or a Samsung note 8. Ideally it's the pixel but the few screen issues are, for the moment, putting me off. I'll give it a fews days thought before I decide, thanks again, David 👍🏻

    Don't let the screen issues put you off; they've been blown out of proportions IMO

    Every time I've read re one of these 'screen issues' people have been looking at the screen from such stupid angles that any other angle it's not noticeable!

    If I were to replace the N6P for as best as I could; I wouldn't be going for a Samsung, going backwards on the OS with no clear idea of when it'll be updated to Oreo (and how far it'll be updated from there) and then there's the Samsung bloatware on top of that (it may be lighter than it used to be, but it's still there)!

    It can only really be the Pixel XL2; Vanilla Android and a superb handset to boot!

    I've ordered a 2XL, it's due to ship on the 26th. There is much crying and rending of garments over the display but I just took a look at one at Best Buy and it's fine. The 2Xl is physically a little smaller than the 6P but the display is noticeably bigger. I compared the speakers to the 6P and they seemed to about the same, the lack of front facing stereo speakers on last years Pixel was a deal killer but Google came to their senses and brought them back on the Pixel2. I don't think there is any option other than a 2XL, I seriously doubt that the battery on my 6P will last until the Pixel 3 comes out. My 6P was replaced under the extended warranty last summer because of the battery but the warranty expires soon so that won't be a possibility when the battery dies again next year. Non Pixel phones are not an option, I don't want Verizon in the loop for my OS updates and I absolutely don't want the crap that everybody layers on top of Android, in particular I don't want Samsung's junk.

    I have an XL 2 coming from a 6P. It's a great phone. Battery life is stellar. The screen issues are overblown. If your coming from a 6P, you'll love this phone.

    Very nice.

    Miss mine, I had 3 (wrote first one off as I spun on ice doing 20mph haha)

    My last one had a JRSC and looked completely OEM, such a great car.

    Have a BMW E39 530i and an E60 M5 now

    Could never go back to a manual car now!

    Good to hear!

    I've cooled down on the idea of getting one as my N6P is literally as new and with a full 2 years warranty. But still, I'll have a good sniff around one when they're out in the CPW stores... Won't be able to help myself

    Mine is as good as the day I got it but I'm due the upgrade so decided to take the plunge. In all fairness, I'll probably use my 6P as my daily driver and the 2XL as my "weekender"... Slight rise in monthly payment by £4 GBP, about $5. The 2XL will have to go a long way to better my 6P.. Time will tell🤔

    I'm lucky that my Teg is my weekend car, had it 12 years and only done 43k miles... Still love it, a real drivers car... Having said that I wouldn't say no to the new Civic Type R!

    Yeah, my DC5s (DC2s and EK9s before that) were always weekend cars. Always had something like an MG ZT V6 or ATRs as my commuting cars.

    But since setting up my own business and working from home, I got suckled into BMWs and have never looked back haha...

    LG V20. Same size as the 6p minus the AMOLED display. Removable battery and stellar HD recording are the perks. Decent display and camera. With the battery drain on the 6p and phones before it, I will never buy a nonremovable battery phone again!

    I'm pretty well set on replacing my 6P with a pixel 2 XL, but I do have one question that I hope someone can answer.
    Does the 2XL do proper screen mirroring to a smart TV, or do you still need Chromecast, like the 6P?
    Other than the battery life, it's the one thing that really annoys me about the 6P.

    I highly doubt that the 2 XL has it. FWIW - the LG V20 has it. I replaced my 6p with the V20 and it's a good upgrade so far.

    Moto Z Play or Moto Z2 Play may have "Cast Screen" as my brother's Moto X Pure has it. The Moto Z line also has mods that are pretty cool, and the Play versions have excellent battery life along with a near stock Android experience.

    It's a Google phone, highly unlikely it will use anything other than chromecast. If it does, then I hope it's better than my 6P... It's the only gripe I have, the 6P struggled to connect to the chromecast dongle at any time😕
