seems to be dead. if it does restart, it immediately shuts down again. thanks for the article.

This is absolutely the battery failing. One of the typical signs of a battery failing is that despite the phone showing that there is still remaining power, as soon as there is any significant drain, the phone shuts down.

this really is the story of my life. seems like either my or my wife’s battery comes to a failure point, long before I am ready to give up the phone, or before there is anything else really wrong with it. do you know of any Pixel XL battery replacement success stories?

I don’t have any experience with the XL, but I’ve had two Pixel battery replacements done by the Google Repair Center. No problems with either, and I had the phones back in hand in 3-4 days.
