Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL review, spec, price and release date

GOOGLE PIXEL 2 AND PIXEL XL 2
Google has at long last taken the wraps off the successor to the Pixel and Pixel XL. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are the cutting edge lead smartphone from Google, upgrading the main perspective of the smartphone.
The first Google Pixel was an odd gadget. It barely managed to be a standout amongst other smartphones of 2016. It did not have an eye-catchy look and a comprehensive collection of essential features you'd expect on a £600 smartphone, however, the remarkable camera made it justified, despite all the trouble.

Now, with the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2, Google is striving to enhance the smartphone as a whole, including the features it abstained last time.
In case you were seeking a total remake of the Pixel design, you might be disappointed about that. The Pixel 2 XL has seen a notable redesign, however, the Pixel 2 feels notably recognizable.

The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL share many core highlights and features, much the same as their predecessors. The two smartphones run on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 SoC and have 4GB of RAM with either 64GB or 128GB of storage capacity. They both feature an IP67 rating for dust and water resistant and in addition stereo speakers, which updates them with whatever is left of the present lead smartphones. Both feature an aluminum unibodies, with unique fingerprint sensors on the back. Both likewise run on Android 8 Oreo and updates are ensured for quite a long time. There's another component called Active Edge, which works likewise to the 'press' motion on the HTC U11, and is set to trigger Google Assistant.

If there's any particular thing that makes this smartphone remarkable, it's the camera. A year ago's Pixel was the best camera you could get on a smartphone, so the Pixel 2 has a considerable measure to satisfy.

Instead of going with Dual lenses and a camera boost like Apple, Google is clinging to a single lens on the back and matching it to a heap of advancements that appear to be iterative when taken separately. But, taken together and put through the channel of Google's machine, I think they have an opportunity to be something truly special.

This won't be the year when the Pixel goes up against the iPhone and the Galaxy regarding sales amounts, however, Google is intense about taking them in terms quality and usefulness.
