If your Pixel 2 is delayed, Google may send you a free Live Case

Some of the folks who've ordered a Pixel 2 smartphonefrom Google Store are now receiving official word about shipping delays of upto a month. Fortunately, Google is sending out emails informing customers that,if their phone is delayed, they'll get a free Live Case (at least in the US). It lookslike these long delays mostly involve the white variant of the Pixel 2.


Normally sold starting at $40, a Live Case is a coolway to protect and personalize your Pixel, as you can use pretty much any photoyou want to customize its back (or you can select one of the artsy imagesprepared by Google - like the one pictured above).    


Both of Google's brand new smartphones have exclusive colorvariants (Kinda Blue for the Pixel 2, and Black & White for the larger Pixel 2XL), but these have been out of stock for quite some time now. Here are all the (non-Verizon) Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL models that can be ordered from Google Store at this very moment:


  • Pixel 2 64 GB, Just Black - ships in 2-3 weeks
  • Pixel 2 128 GB, Just Black - ships immediately
  • Pixel 2, 128 GB, Clearly White - ships in 4-5 weeks
  • Pixel 2 XL 64 GB, Just Black - ships by October 29
  • Pixel 2 XL 128 GB, Just Black - ships by October 22

Have you ordered a new Google Pixel smartphone yet? If yes, has it arrived, or will it ship anytime soon?

I ordered a Pixel 2XL just black on October 4th right away and mine isn’t shipping until Nov 13th in Canada. I guess US market first which makes sense I guess but usually shipping companies infrastructure treat North America as one but I guess Google doesn’t which is disappointing. Might cost them a sale since the more I hear about the poor display the higher chances of me cancelling it. Still though, you can’t get any poorer than the iPhone 8 750p lcd display and that gets less flak than the Pixel 2XL. Android really need some sheep that will defend everything Google does to break these double standards Apple has created.

Serious question: Do Android users stare at their screens all day or something? The way you dudes brag about resolution, you'd think all you do is watch vids on these tiny ass screens.

I mean, I've owned plenty of QuadHD phones in the past, not sure why rez is such an important deal beyond VR.

If the iPhone 8 didn’t look like an outdated dithery mess than you might have a point, but unfortunately it does. You are looking at this tiny ass screen all day, it should be a top priority.....

I totally did that, Love the screen and everything but had to switch back to the apple ecosystem. It just sucks that apple haven't caught up design wise with something similar to the s8 or note. Lets see how the X is gonna be like... cheers
