Going from a Regular Sammy User to Pixel 2XL

Recommended Posts

I've been using Samsung phones since the S3, but I recently shattered the screen on my S7 Edge (even damage the OLED screen itself). So I just ordered a Pixel 2XL and I am also switching to Fi. The question for others who have made this switch is; will I be happy with the Pixel phone, compared to the Samsungs I have owned in the past? I love rooting my phones and flashing Roms, so I know I'll get to enjoy that aspect again, at the least.

I have a regular pixel 2 (Verizon model) and I find that I have no reason for rooting anymore,. It cAuses .ore trouble then it's worth. The pure Android system is way better then Samsungs bloat.

I was a long time Samsung user before my Nexus 6P, I will never go back.

Imagine a world where you only have one app to do each function (instead of 3 similar apps)

I think the hardware on my S5 was more durable, and swapping the back button took a month to re learn, but you'll love it

I should have made this switch a long time ago! I love this phone, plus I'm done with USC! Well somewhat, considering they're my best Fi service coverage.

I've also made the change to a Pixel 2 XL(64Gb). I can say the it is a vast improvement from my S4... I'm also using the Google FI service at this time with it, I'm wanting to evaluate how well the FI service is for me. If I like what I see/hear/pay(and I am so far.....especially with the rebate) I'll get a Pixel 2 for my wife, port both our existing #'s and give USC the heave ho.....
