Google starts shipping Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL pre-orders

Almost two weeks after the official announcement, Google has started to ship some Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL pre-orders. If you're one of the many customers who placed an order with a shipping date on or around October 17, then it's worth checking your email.

Depending on when exactly you've pre-ordered the Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL, your device might ship sooner or later. If you haven't placed your pre-order in the first week after the official unveiling, chances are that your Pixel smartphone won't ship this week.

You'll be able to tell when exactly Google will ship your phone the moment your card is charged for the purchase of the Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL. After that, it should take longer than 24 hours to receive a shipping notification.

If you did not pre-order the Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL and waited for reviews to arrive, then you should know that orders for either of the two smartphones are now shipping by October 29, so you'll have to wait a while longer.

Damn man, you created an account just so you could show off how uneducated you are? Your post was riddled with spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors.

I tried this phone(pixel 2 xl) today in carphone warehouse. and i feel this phone is awesome. very smooth, camera was awesome, screen looks very nice. i liked the curved edge and front facing stereo speaker is also good. Could not try the full sound as i was in the shop. I wanted to try AR thing but didn't know how to do that.

I ordered my Clearly White Pixel 2 128GB on the 5th, the day after they fully announced the device. I immediately received a notification that I should expect it sometime between October 27th & 29th. I really hope I get it sooner, but oh well.

I have a Black 2XL on pre-order. Oct 4. Played with one in Verizon, I have to admit, the screen isnt as good as the Samsung panels. Also, I was a bit surprised that the iPhone 8+ speakers were better sounding than the ones on the 2XL. O well, ill be keeping it due to the software experience and the kick ass camera. THE CAMERA WAS EXCELLENNNNTTTTTTT

My card got charged soon as I pre ordered the 2 XL on the 4th. Says I'll get it on the 24th, I might cancel and go to the Google store on Thursday and buy it over the counter.

New Pixel 2 XL orders placed in Canada don't ship until December. Talk about low supply.
