Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL vs the Galaxy Note 8, iPhone X, and the best of the rest: size comparison

Google has just made its 2017 smartphone lineup official in the form of the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

The Google Pixel 2 features a 5-inch 1080p display, retaining the more traditional design of last year's model, while the Pixel 2 XL follows 2017 trends and is outfitted with a QHD+ 18:9 display surrounded by thin bezels. Employing two very different designs for its new flagship lineup is a smart move on Google's part and an excellent way to cover all bases: have an "oldschool" device with larger bezels to cater to traditionalists, and have another one that follows the new trends to cater to the cool kids. Only the Pixel 2 XL doesn't have the thinnest bezels on the block, but that's a different story entirely!

The Pixel 2 offers more of an incremental update over its predecessor, sticking to the same general form factor and design, albeit offering the benefits of the latest in mobile tech under the hood. The Pixel 2 XL is a different beast entirely, as it sports a beautiful 18:9 6-inch display with a resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixels, which puts it in the same league as the Galaxy S8+, Note 8, LG G6, and LG V30, as far its footprint and design are concerned.

With that said, lets see how the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL stack up against the competition in terms of size and weight:

The regular Pixel 2's bezels are hideous.

I don't mind them. They look like the Nexus 5X and 6P. Kinda retro, if 2015 can be retro.

When you can't complain anything about the phone, pick on the bezels.

27. trojan_horse

Posts: 5868; Member since: May 06, 2016

So, the bezels aren't part of the phone, then? I've got no issue with the spec sheet or featureset of the handset. Just with it's design.

I don't know. I usually look at the screen, not at the bezels. So bezels are not an issue for me.

I would beg Sammy to make S9 to be 16:9 and S9+ to be 18/18.5:9, making it cover best of both worlds, and you know! they wont be making S9(16:9) with such hideous bezels anyways but they should employ same tech in all the other aspects. My money is already waiting for them to just shut up and take for the S9.

Lg v30 is better.

The S8, V30, and iPhone X do make the Pixel 2 bezels look outdated, but at least they did something with that space (front speakers). Whereas last year it was just blank space to match the proportions of the iPhone 7.

I find the LG V30 an even prettier S8, but I stand with the Pixel (2) XL having equally nice design to the G6...

Lg v30 seems like the best choice here...

Can you make a graphic vs. the Nexus 6? ;) or what's a phone that's the same size as the pixel 2xl's supposed size? I want to use the size comparison tool on this site, it's great. I am coming from my Nexus 6...

15. roldefol

If PA's specs up there are correct, you can just use the current Pixel XL as your stand-in. That or the Moto Z2 Force.

155mm? Slightly taller than the xl last year. Meanwhile the v30 is shorter with than 155mm. Yeah I'll pass.

21. fyah_king unregistered

Because of the dual front speakers.

Looks like a good size to me if this is true. And its funny how iphonearena says this phone looks chunky and gives the iphone 8 plus a 9.2 lol. Hilarious. How does this look chunky? It's not as edgy as the Samsung phones but nothing else is either. Samsung phones more futuristic looking than the V30 and iphone X and the latter slightly more futuristic than the pixel 2 xl. If you attack the pixel xl 2 attack the iphone x and v30 too.

Wow. The GS8 design is incredible. No ugly notch and size is the same handling as the iPhone 8, , iPhone X, and pixel 2 with perfect symmetry and highest screen to body ratio. I know Samsung had to try harder than others because of the Note 7 fiasco but they really hit that design out of the park.

The note 8 just has some business look to it that turns me on. Can’t wait to get one

Pixel 2 is such a let down not an upgrade size size from my Samsung S6, smaller screen size but massively bigger, pixel 2 should have been 5.1 or 5.2" with smaller bezels the same size as Samsung S6. Bad design.

The Samsung phones make all the other phones look old with their thick side bezels

my biggest problem with Google pixel is = it always out of stock! In my country, Google came after 6 month launch! and the worst part sold out in 38 minute! Than have to wait again for 3-4 week to re-stock. and this will be repeated for Pixel 2.
