Not worth it. Phone no longer gets security updates.

It's come too late. The title should be "For Collectors ...."

I'm looking forward to getting a Pixel 6 Pro. By the spy images, it'll be the best looking Pixel phone. I hope google delivers this time around.

No updates but probably better than most new budget phones at this price.
Unlocked bootloader for custom roms but not necessary
QHD OLED Display
Stereo front facing speakers
Unlimited photo backup but high quality only

It's still a flagship phone albeit older. If I have to buy a phone right now, I'll buy this phone. Luckily I keep a backup phone to avoid such predicament.

This will still get you unlimited Google photo storage right?

damn I never would have even considered buying this phone in TYOL 2021, but now that you mention its "For Collectors", this phone is irresistible! I am in for one.

(not)

but really, this is a tough sell considering that Pixel 3 XL was on sale for a similar price just a few weeks ago.

Different Pixel phones will get different levels of unlimited storage going forward.

Google Pixel 2/ Pixel 2 XL
Unlimited full-quality photos were available for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, until January 2021. Now you get unlimited "Storage Saver" space instead, It's not the best quality, but it at least lets you keep all your shots safe in the cloud.
If you want true unlimited full size photos you still need the original Pixel

Quote :
Google Pixel/ Pixel XL

The first-generation Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL get the best deal out of all the phones. Google offered full-quality back-ups for life when these phones launched, and although Google Photos is changing, this offer isn't ending.

Quote from IndigoLinen1873 :
Solid phone for the price

The XL used a different screen technology than the smaller Pixel 2. (POLED vs. AMOLED)
"There have been reported issues about the display on the Pixel 2 XL though. One is screen burn-in, wherein remnants of images remain on the screen despite not being actively displayed. Screen burn-in does happen on different types of displays, but usually after some time. The fact that it's happening on such a premium and expensive phone so soon is a red flag."

Absolutely worth it for parents and in laws. These phones are disposable in my eyes. Have had 3 in rotation for 3 years. Still super fast.

As a man with the basic common sense, who would like to buy 2xl?

I actually do collect this stuff, but I'm not paying $120 for a phone I'll never use, unless it's some major landmark phone (i.e. original iPhone new in box, or maybe even the original Pixel). This is more like a $30, when it comes along, still in good condition type of purchase. I don't need a pristine Pixel 2 XL for a collection, it wasn't really that big of a deal, other than it was a good phone at the time.

the phone is very good screen resolution, it is hard to find nowadays
