    Battery life on the Pixel XL has been superb. I'm usually at 40% with 4+ hour SOT every night.
    Consistently.
    I can now relate to what libra89 meant by "no battery life anxiety"

    The little Pixel was fine. But at 4+ hour SOT meant the phone needed to be plugged in as battery saver would kick in below 15%. That phenomenon has yet to occur on the XL.

    I'll report back on how the battery life is on the Pixel 2 next week.

    That sounds so good! I'm curious how it will compare to the Pixel 2.

    That's good! Ah factory resetting is a pain so I don't blame you on not doing it.
    It's a backup device for me at this point, which is why I'm reluctant to factory reset it unless absolutely necessary.

    I'm trying this Bluetooth headset + wired USB-C headphones life to see if I can tolerate it before buying Andy's phone.

    Honestly, if I had the extra cash I'd buy it and a V30 at the same time and sell everything else...

    That's a great plan. Good luck with your testing.

    Maybe I could get a U11 instead. Lol.

    Thanks. We'll see how it goes.

    Haha, that phone would solve 2 of your phone needs/preferences in one, but not really be compact. That's an idea lol. Anyway, keep us posted. I'm curious how this will go for you.

    I couldn't stay put very long. Still have the Idol and an iPhone, but I had to add an Android just to keep it all in check. Picked up a mint Sony XZ for a song because it had a corrupted ROM. Sure enough I had to go beyond the norm and see to it that I activated the fingerprint scanner that Sony disables for the US market. I've always liked the brickish design of Xperias so I figured what could it hurt. I'm still in the process of setting it up and logging into my accounts but I must admit this is a nicer skin than I remember.

    Nice.
    I am thinking of picking up a cheap Idol 4S so that I can play with WM10 - till MSFT officially kills it.

    I love how this phone is so much better in terms of ergonomics compared to the original Pixel.
    Gotta finish work and then set it up.

    That's good! Does it feel small in comparison to your Pixel XL? I'll be looking forward to your thoughts on it.

    Yes it does.
    Actually the S8 feels so nice as well.
    After a couple of weeks of the XL, I'm really looking forward to the smaller phones.

    The 8+ is going to get turned around and off it will go to Canada on Monday. The Pixel 2 will get the primary SIM card. The spare SIM will have to decide between the Pixel XL and the S8.

    I forgot for a moment that you had the Note 8 too. It sounds it will be refreshing to use something small again.

    Gotcha. I'm really looking forward to hearing about your experience with the Pixel 2. Hmm that might be tough to choose for the spare sim.

    Note 8 went bye bye. It was too big for me. Plus that Pixel 2 deal was so tempting.

    I don't blame you. The Pixel 2 seems like it would be fun to play with for sure and with a deal, why not?

    I have already used the S8 before. This came in a trade for the Note 8. The 8+ is going to Canada on Monday. Pixel 2 will be my daily driver starting next week.
