While there’s a lot to like about the Pixel 2 XL, the device hasn’t been without controversy. From that perspective, the OnePlus 5T arrives at just the right time. Its attractive price and gorgeous design could entice unhappy Google fans to shack up elsewhere.
The OnePlus 5T is a wonderful alternative because it features a lovely design, affordable price, and some of the cleanest software this side of the Pixel. On the flip side of that, however, the Pixel receives regular updates and will likely outlive the OnePlus 5T with better support from Google.
To be fair, many of the issues the Pixel 2 XL has faced have been overblown. And even if the Pixel 2 XL’s display isn’t perfect, you still get a terrific experience with arguably the best mobile camera on the market.
