Hands-on review: UPDATED: Google Pixel XL

You don’t have to shop in the big-and-tall section of stores to want the Google Pixel XL. It’s a powerful phablet at a still-reasonable size, and it’s made by Google. This 5.5-inch Android phone is the successor to last year’s Nexus 6P, as Google is altogether ditching the affordable, developer-focused Nexus brand in favor of […]
