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.

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.
