Can't use LCD for Daydream VR, so the U11+ would be a no go.
I didn't know that. Is there a reason why an LCD can't be used with Daydream VR?

Why don't you just buy it from Google?

Something to do with the ghosting effect of LCD's and effectively being higher latency.

Wow. Thats 4 days early. Wonder when will my 64GB Panda ship. Can you update on the screen and speaker issues after you receive your phone?

Is it still worth it to buy the pixel 2 xl given that a new issue seems to come out everyday.

On Saturday my phone was shipped. Should be there by now. Panda 2 XL 128.

Not sure if its worth keeping based on RMA issues.

anyone else scared of getting bootloop issues down the line? since LG has had a history of this. My last two LG nexuses have bootloop issues.

But honestly I really like the pixel 2 XL but hate that LG is still the manufacturer

Now the RMA will be handled by Google, you can be sure that they will own up to hardware issues if they do happen to fail and brick the phone.
Because they can't just blame or shove people to LG if they slapped their own brand on there. LG's known to deny/give people run-arounds on previous issues.

I wouldn't count on it too much. Theres currently a class action lawsuit in the USA vs google/Huawei due to battery problems of Nexus 6p and 5x. My 6p (out of warranty) recently started to shutdown @ around 50% battery. Called them to see if they could do a battery change/swipe and they referred me to Huawei (which also doesnt cover when out of warranty).

Nexus and Pixel are two different lines of products. They are charging a premium for the Pixel not the Nexus lines of phones.
Which makes sense if they shove you around to their perspective manufacturers since it's not "made by Google".
