Whilst the smaller phone isn't as impressive on the battery as the XL you get a full day out of it most days. The full HD screen while still nice, doesn’t look as good as the Oneplus 5 screen, weirdly. But I really do appreciate that Google are giving us a single handed phone with all the power of the bigger one. Keep on that! This seems to be a dying thing everywhere else. I get RSI and it really hurts my hand to stretch too much on large screens. I only hope they continue with this size but improve upon the design, battery and display.
