XL2 arrived while I was at work, have been using it for about 2 hours...it's a nice phone. Call quality is great, UI and software are great...much easier to hold and operate than my Moto Nexus 6. I am happy with the purchase.
I've always said if they put out a phone in the exact same physical form as the N5 but with newer insides I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I loved that phone till the very end. My first Nexus experience I guess.
