Just a word of warning. Bought one from another vendor and the battery would never stay charged. Apparently that is a problem with the Pixel and Pixel2 versions. It would get to 100%, unplug from the cable and plug back in and it would be at 20%. We ended up returning it and got an LG instead.
I sure would hope these would have new batteries, but it is a gamble. I had a Pixel for 2 years and it was great until the battery stopped holding a charge.
We test all the batteries and if they don’t pass, we replace them.
Sure. I just hope the test is comprehensive enough to identify the issue of fully charging only for it to drop down to 30% almost immediately after unplugging.
- These are prone to screen burn.
- They will not be updated beyond Android 10. edit applies the OG Pixel only!
- The Verizon models do not allow the bootloader to be unlocked, which rules out installing custom ROMs.
- These are great phones with amazing cameras and unlimited full-res photo storage in the Google cloud. edit full-res storage applies the OG Pixel only!
Wasn’t that only an issue for the XL variety?
I did some flipping of almost every generation of the Pixels.
Even some non XL versions had burn-in issues.
