Pixel 2 XL and Nexus 6P: Worth the Upgrade?

With the new Google Pixel 2 XL, it’s finally here, with potential buyers considering all their options. Including an upgrade from Google’s last big-screen smartphone, the Nexus 6P. If you’ve passed the original Pixel XL and are considering an upgrade, here’s how the Pixel 2 XL compares to the Nexus 6P.

Both of these phones have big screens and stock Android along with lots of neat features. However, considering the Nexus 6P is two years old, there are some big differences between the two.

In this article, we’ll go over everything you need to know about each device. What’s similar is the dual front-facing speakers, which sets them apart and whether the Pixel 2 XL upgrades are worth the higher price tag.

If you’re like me, you don’t upgrade to a new phone every year. And even if you did, some skipped the Pixel XL because it was impossible to buy for months. Or some features and changes weren’t big enough to convince you to switch.

Well, now the Nexus 6P is two years old. If you haven’t seen enough to warrant an upgrade, we suggest you look again. This is because some significant changes have taken place in the last two years. The Pixel 2 XL has been made “inside and out” by Google and is a lot more focused than Nexus devices. Google has reverted to dual front-facing speakers for the Pixel 2 XL, the camera is better, and you get a bigger screen in a smaller package.

Most of the people who bought the Nexus 6P did so for a few different reasons. It runs stock Android, has great sound, good camera, and since it’s a Nexus phone. Take everything you love about the Nexus 6P and pack it even better, here’s the Pixel 2 XL.

The Nexus 6P is still a great phone, but it’s getting a bit old and has a few drawbacks. Our information below summarizes all the changes, upgrades and new features. If you’re still in danger, here’s how the two stack up against each other and what to get from Google’s latest and greatest.
