Google Pixel 2

 

Pixel 2 review, news, specs, features and price: Is this the best handset Google has released to date? Or could it have done more to beat the competition?

Truly amazing camera ; The best version of Android ; Nice display

Boring design ; Huge bezel

Out of the box the Pixel 2’s 2700 mAh battery works well enough. When I first started using it, I managed to get just about day of use from the Pixel 2, which is bog standard. A standard day entailed browsing the web for a couple of hours, taking a...

Google Pixel 2 review: amazingly intelligent

 

But can you ignore those bezels?

Distinctive design ; Leading camera ; Intelligent software

Top and bottom bezels ; Plastic-like metal

Google Pixel 2 review: Clean, speedy Android in a minimal can

 

Last year's Pixels were fantastic. Perhaps the first time in years that Google's "pure" line of phones had no compromises. Great screens, great build,

Polished ; Speedy performance ; Clean software and great front and back cameras

Screen isn't as vibrant as competitors ; ActiveEdge is a pain to use ; Lack of bezel free display is confusing

Last year's Pixels were fantastic. Perhaps the first time in years that Google's "pure" line of phones had no compromises. Great screens, great build, amazing cameras, good battery life and pure Android in one proper flagship package. This year, it's a...

Google Pixel 2 review

 

A super-fast software powerhouse with the best camera on any phone

Takes amazing photos ; Really fast ; Packed with clever software touches

Design feels dated ; Screen isn’t quite flagship-worthy ; Stingy with storage

Buy it if you want a phenomenal camera and superb software experience; buy the 2 XL if you want those two things plus a bigger, better screen

Google Pixel 2 review

 

One of the best cameras on a smartphone

Top-of-the-line photos and video ; Dual front-facing speakers ; Premium water-resistant body

Bezels really stand out in 2018 ; No 3.5mm headphone jack ; Camera app could be better

The Google Pixel 2 clues us in on why Google called its phone series Pixel: it was building the best camera on a phone. This second-generation effort fulfills that promise with not only the best-in-class photos, but also dual front-facing speakers and...

Google Pixel 2 review: The redefined Android phone

 

Google's Pixel 2 is waving the flag for Android once again

Top-notch performance ; Much better display than the Pixel 2 XL ; The best smartphone camera, ever

Expensive

Once again, Google is leading the Android charge. It might be sticking with same uninspired design as last year's – and lacks the bezel-less display of its supersized sibling – but a much-needed processor upgrade and welcome camera improvements have...

Pixel 3 vs Pixel 2: How does Google's new flagship compare to its predecessor?

 

Google has unveiled its new flagship smartphone, the Pixel 3. In this article, we compare the new handset with its predecessor, the Pixel 2.

The Google Pixel 2 was as good an Android handset as you could buy upon its release. Hopefully the minor improvements made to the Pixel 3 will streamline the handset further, and maintain Google’s position at the forefront of the flagship smartphone game.

Google Pixel 2 vs iPhone Xs: The big two go head to head

 

They're two of the biggest smartphone brands in the world, but how does Apple's new iPhone Xs fare against the old Google Pixel 2?

The iPhone Xs is all fun and games (read: beautiful, stylish, high-performing) until you check your bank balance and find you need to remortgage your house. But if you want the better phone and don’t care about the cost, then it’s advantage Apple.

Google Pixel 2 Review: Best Android ever?

 

The standard Pixel 2 handset offers a full specs update compared with the original Google phone. But has the Pixel 2 XL stole the spotlight?

Solid camera tech ; Sharp screen with deep blacks ; Strong performance

Lacks sex appeal ; Software needs some love

Google’s Pixel phones are among the very few Android handsets out there to offer a clean, unfettered version of the OS, packed inside some premium hardware. You might not get much in the way of frills, yet the Pixel is a well-constructed smartphone...
