Pocketnow Weekly 277: the HTC Pixel 2 XL and the cutting-edge Razer Phone

Two more HTC phones, one big Razer Phone. Who said November was a dead month for mobile? Between Android One utility and maximum charge muscling, we're about set for the year, we think.

More on that and the Sprint and T-Mobile merger that just won't die and, as it was iPhone X pre-order day last week, it's iPhone X sales day today! We talk about all this on the Pocketnow Weekly!

Watch the video recorded from 3:30pm Eastern on November 3rd, or check out the high-quality audio version right here. You can shoot your listener emails to podcast@pocketnow.com for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air the following week!
