Although receiving very positive reviews on release, users have complained about a litany of issues affecting either the Pixel 2 or the Pixel 2 XL, and sometimes both, as in this instance. Citibank has upped its end of the bargain here, bundling the handset with a Rs 10000 cashback so it's available at 54999.
Google is now silently replacing Pixel 2 units with sensitive proximity sensors to avoid any bad publicity, including Pixel/Pixel 2 units which are ridden with microphone issues.
Other users are also noting that there is a slight increase in heat generated while using the phone for just about anything; including simple tasks like checking social media.
Google Pay launches to replace Android Pay and Google Wallet
Everything Android Pay offered is still there including all your linked cards, the ability to pay for things in supported stores. In a note to longtime Android Pay users, Google noted the features they enjoy will not disappear under the Google Pay brand.
There's also an exchange scheme worth Rs 18000, an additional 5% off with Axis Bank Buzz credit cards, and a 1-year Buyback Guarantee upon paying Rs 149.
But for the next few hours only, you can take a whopping $400 off the Google Pixel 2 XL price with a "qualified" Verizon activation, which is a new record-high discount outside BOGO or trade-in affairs. The 64GB version is selling at Rs 54,999 and the 128GB variant can be bought at Rs 63,999. The customers can avail the offer by February 28, 2018.
The latest sales figures for the Google's Pixel is far from convincing. The display comes along with a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
