The reviews are in and everybody just loves the quality OLED component Google picked for the Pixel 2 XL. They really just can't stop talking about it. And talking? That's what The Vergecast is for. On this week’s episode, Nilay, Dieter, and Paul discuss the reviews of Google's new phones. Then The Verge's security expert Russell Brandom drops by to explain Krack and four-way handshakes. It's all the grit and off-axis color shifting of a Pentile display, in podcast form.
