Why I’m ready to ditch the Nexus 6P for the Pixel XL

When your phone starts acting up, sometimes you have to live with it.

If you follow me on social media, you’ve likely read my complaints about my year-old Nexus 6P. Frankly, my “Really Blue” Pixel XL can’t get here soon enough.

The frequent lag, the touch-input delay, the poor battery life—things seem to have taken a turn for the worse these last six months with  [Read More…]
