    XL all the way. I think the size of the XL is probably the max size I would get, in any phone. It gets to point where sizes bigger than that can be a nuisance, especially for one handed operation

    I have an s7 right now, but I can't resist the draw of the pure Google experience. I want to feel it in hand first, though. Anyone making a switch from S7/edge to Pixel/XL?

    Everyone seems to be liking the black color variant of Pixel! I'd prefer Regular Pixel for its size..

    Was originally thinking about the Pixel XL, because I like the size of the Nexus 6p, but now I am thinking about going smaller.

    I'm XL all the way, except for the price. I'm not sure if the "upgrade" is worth $120 to me.
    That has been my feeling as well but I really want a larger phone

    I have a Pixel XL in my hands now. I suggest for anyone who's uncertain about the size that you go into the store to check it out. It is a solid phone and anyone on the fence about size might find it too big (or might decide it's preferable).

    How is the sound on these? I do so enjoy stereo speakers.

    The sound is okay. You won't get stereo sound with the speakers unfortunately. I miss that feature most from my Nexus 6P.

    I do agree. The stereo speakers on the 6p are pretty awesome; however, the sound level is a bit low on them.

    I had my phone set up to play YouTube earlier today and for a moment I thought I had stereo sound. I think I had the sound reflecting off something behind the phone because as soon as I covered the speaker, I muffled all sound.

    I'm still thinking about the standard pixel. Like the idea of the smaller size phone

    My answer: Neither. I have a 6p at the moment, and I'm want to see a bit more about how Google will manage the product before taking the plunge. I'll probably wait until next year to see what Google releases next as a version 2.

    I see a lot of people not wanting a phone as large as the XL - and I don't want to sound condescending, as everyone has different use cases (and hand sizes!), but it was hard to get used to the smaller Nexus 6P after loving the Nexus 6, so I'm not really thrilled about stepping down again in size to the XL.

    My wife is getting a Pixel though, and I'll bet she loves it.

    How would daydream compare to 'desktop' vr in terms of usage and content?

    I'm pretty sure it's not supported because of hardware. I think it lacks some of the necessary sensors to be Daydream ready.

    As I really like the bigger one, I'll go for the XL...If you put them near you can see that the difference in term of size is not so huge and for a Nexus 5 user like me, having a bigger battery is something that a phone must have nowadays
    I also think that it is a bit more suitable for VR than the smaller Pixel at all, for his screen quality.

    Yea, I've found the whole size thing to really be a bit of a personal preference thing. I typically go for the smaller phones, but am open to trying larger ones.

    I suppose it depends how much the screen door effect bothers you. It will definitely be a noticeable difference.
    If you can play with a Google cardboard or similar, try it with different phones with different screen resolutions. It'll be the same as that visually.

    Of course it will also depend on how much the vr really matters to you. I personally would definitely get the XL, as the daydream is one of the features I'm most excited about. If it's just something you might play with but isn't a huge draw for you, then definitely just pick the phone that's the most comfortable to use.

    I'd probably go with an XL, because of the higher resolution and size. I'd imagine it would make the experience that much better.

    Thats a bummer. Which sensors would It technically be lacking? I'd love to choose daydream over gear VR since daydream has a remote with it and is $20 cheaper.
