Best reasons to consider buying Google Pixel 2 & Pixel 2 XL
A camera that can give other smartphones a run for their money
A year has passed since Google Pixel was launched by Google and its still being thought to have one of the best cameras that an Android smartphone could have. Now the tech giant with its Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 Xl has taken the Android smartphone camera to the next level. The quality of pictures taken from both these cameras are flawless and especially the Google Pixel 2 XL stands out in terms of smartphone cameras. In fact, many benchmark ratings have provided numbers that show that its camera setup is by far the best that you can find on any smartphone available today.
The camera sensors used in the Google Pixel 2 & Pixel 2 XL are exactly same as used in its predecessors but Google has obviously worked on making them more perfect and accurate. You’ll find that the pictures clicked with these devices are actually warm and the color reproduction is almost perfect. Although there is no dual-camera setup in both the phones, you can still take pictures in portrait mode which so exclusively available for Google Pixel 2 XL.
Well, this is a feature that every Android user loves. Most of the Android smartphones receive the latest Android updates very late and some of them even don’t receive the updates. However, Google has announced that as soon as it launches any new Android OS, the Pixel smartphones will get it first before any other smartphones. This is a great feature especially for people who love Android and want quicker updates on their smartphones. When you buy the Google Pixel 2 & Pixel 2 XL, you’ll get Android Oreo 8.0 out of the box and you’ll be able to receive all the updates as soon as possible.
Front-facing stereo speaker
If you go out to the market today, you’ll find very few flagships that support a front-facing speaker. This makes the speaker present in the Google Pixel 2 & Pisel 2 XL a surprise for people. The front-facing speakers provide great sound quality and are even loud when compared with other smartphones. Another good thing about these devices when it comes to speakers is that both the smartphones sport dual speakers in the front. Which means you get louder and crispier sound in the device than the others.
All new squeezable frame
As seen in the HTC U11, the Google Pixel 2 XL comes with an active frame that can be squeezed to perform certain functions. For example, when you get a call, you can easily mute it by simply squeezing the frame of the smartphone. The same thing goes for snoozing and stopping an alarm. Squeezing the Pixel 2 XL’s frame will also start Google Assistant, which can be very helpful in public places where speaking could be a little difficult. This feature might be termed as a direct copy of the HTC U11 smartphone, but to be frank this could prove to be a good feature for the Pixel users.
If you love Android smartphones and have been a part of the Android ecosystem for a while then probably the Google Assistant doesn’t require any introduction. However, if you aren’t aware of it, it’s one of the best voice assistants that you could find on a smartphone. Now you can open the Google Assistant by simply squeezing the frame of the smartphone or by just saying “ok Google”. You can ask the Google Assistant to perform a large gamut of functions, like opening certain apps, taking pictures, searching anything on the web, calling someone, setting reminders and alarms, and many others.
Great display and design
Both the Google Pixel 2 & Pixel 2 XL have great designs and display as well. Outfitted with a black glass panel, white aluminum chassis, and a quirky orange power button, the Pixel 2 XL features a unique design that looks sleek and elegant. Compared to last year’s model, the design looks incredibly polished, and with a 6-inch display, the phone packs in a great design. Same goes for the design of Pixel 2. Like its elder sibling, the smartphone has an improved design and a polished screen that make the phones look great.
Coming to the display, Google ships the Pixel 2 with a gorgeous 5-inch Samsung-made AMOLED panel which seems to be great. It’s sharp, shows good color reproduction capability, and adheres to flagship brightness standards. For all those, who love punchy colors Google added a ‘Saturated’ mode under Colors option in the last update which gives the display an edge over the others. In the case of the Google Pixel 2 XL, you get a bigger 6.2 inch OLED display which is even better and crisp. Additionally, the Saturated mode provides the display a nice warmth which makes the screen good to look to.
If the performance of a smartphone is the deciding factor of whether to get it or not then you can’t go wrong with the Google Pixel 2 & Pixel 2 XL. Both the devices come with great hardware and features that will make all your tasks on the phone fly by smoothly. Both the smartphones come with the powerful Snapdragon 835 processor and the latest GPU for better performance.
Water resistance and warranty
Both the Google Pixel 2 & Pixel 2 XL are IP67 certified, which means that they are water and dust resistant. Additionally, Google also assures that both these smartphones will provide you assured protection against day-to-day spillage making a lasting difference.
Now coming to the warranty, Google Pixel 2 & Pixel 2 XL have the biggest advantage over their competitors. Both the phones come with 2 years of warranty while most of the other smartphones have the warranty of maximum of 1 year. Google came up with this offer to counter finger raised over the Pixel 2 XL screen related issues. Additionally, the extended warranty is still applicable to both Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.
