The Google Pixel 2 XL is a huge improvement over the Pixel XL of last year in terms of external design. Now you get a larger beautiful edge-to-edge display, with a phone that is only 1mm taller, 3.2mm wider and even 7mm thinner than the previous model. The Pixel 2 XL still has a small top and bottom bezels, but it's still look really sleek.
The back not looks more sleek as well. I personally really like the Panda color version, the one with the top black and bottom white colors, it looks amazing.
The Pixel 2 XL wtill got that small top and bottom bezels but it doesn't take away from it looks. Some people didn't like the relatively thick side bezels. Indeed, the Pixel 2 XL is nothing like the Samsung Galaxy S8+. The S8 Plus has much slimmer side bezels which makes it look really futuristic, like a new tech. The Pixel 2 XL looks more like the LG G6.
As I mentioned, it might not look as sleek as the Galaxy S8 or the Note8 but it's way better looking than the Google Pixel XL from last year. I've already read on phonearena.com that the 'panda' version is out of stock. To be honest, the other colors aren't that special, but the 'panda' with that touch of orange for the side button look really sick.
