    Mine is now out for delivery and I've ordered a live case too! Felt like ordering something different over the standard Spigen case.

    Any way to get the Google store to order from the UK without using a VPN? I'm currently on the border of the UK/Norwegian waters so everything is being diverted to the .no handle.

    What do you mean by VPN pop?
    Regardless, That's good to hear. That means I can get it ordered a few days before home time so that I'm not waiting too long.

    Great choice on the Live Case. I have enjoyed mine on the Pixel XL for the past year and have a new Live Case set to protect my Panda XL when it arrives next week (or so CPW says).

    Really makes the phone personal.

    @michty_me POP = Point Of Presence > a hop off point with a VPN exit point based in Norway somewhere.

    So what display settings are you guys using ? I am on Saturated

    I recommend the font size at smallest as well.

    Took phone of charge at 7am and still have 60% battery. Been playing with it all day as well. Not bad

    CPW people in store told me they received a few Pixel 2 XLs today on their official launch but were quickly allocated/sold out. All deliveries were for the colour Black.

    Said the Panda's are like gold-dust at the moment.

    Has anyone received a Panda from the Google Store yet and what do they think about the colours?

    Yep spam update to make sure you have the latest patch then you get an option in display under advanced.

    I find the default is to washed out for me. Even if it is natural.

    Natural here.

    I'm at 35% with 4h SOT, the battery on this is pretty good!

    Still not tested out the camera yet.

    Won't pick anything up for me; stuck on the Sept update. Thankfully I ran my 6P in RGB mode for the past couple of weeks so I am fairly used to the muted colours now but it'd be nice to be on the latest version.

    My small pixel is on 20% - 18h 29m ago was last full charge. SOT 4h 45mins. I'm very impressed with this phone to be honest. Only downside is coming from a iphone plus, I wish I had more screen lol, but I can live with it and love how light it is. The speakers are fantastic and android just seems to much better then my experience with it on a OP3T and Note5.

    That's odd. I cancelled my Google Panda and bought an iPhone X. That lasted a week before I returned it (phone is awesome but it runs iOS) and ordered a Panda from CPW on Saturday. It arrived yesterday! I'm so happy I chose that colour scheme, it looks and feels amazing. I have it in one of the fabric cases now which is also great.

    Set my XL up this evening. Loving it so far! Blue shift is there, but no issue at all for me. Put the Ultimate Shield TGP on, fits well, slight rainbow effect in the centre of the screen, but only noticeable when looking at a stupid angle with a white background! Don't know what to make of the Caseology case I have. It feels bulkier than the Spigen case I had on my 6P, so would be good to hear the views of anyone that has a Spigen case on their XL.
