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

 

The true Pixel experience in a (slightly) smaller package and minus the display issues - this is the Google Pixel 2 in size Medium and not Extra Large.

Google Pixel 2 Review

 

The Pixel 2 is a brilliantly fast, compact smartphone with a stunning camera.

But can you ignore those bezels?

Distinctive design ; Leading camera ; Intelligent software

Top and bottom bezels ; Plastic-like metal

Google Pixel 2 review (updated): Pixel 2 still great, but a Pixel 3 could be out in a few months.

 

The Pixel 2's superb camera makes it worth a look. Just be aware that an upgrade will likely come later this year.

Google's Pixel 2 has a superb camera with OIS and excellent low-light shooting. It's water-resistant and Google Lens calls up a trove of information to help you explore your surroundings.

The phone's battery doesn't keep pace with the Pixel's competitors and its Portrait Mode isn't as smooth on dual-camera phones. Its design feels dated and it doesn't have wireless charging or a headphone jack.

Buy the Pixel 2 for one of the best cameras on any Android phone and fast Google updates, but be aware that an upgrade is likely coming in a few months.

Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL: Everything you need to know about Google's new flagships

 

The follow-up to Google's flagship Pixel phone brings major changes. Here's what's different and not so different between the two phones.

It's hard to say. We didn't experience any issues with the Pixel 2 XL screen on our review unit, but other reviewers have noticed inconsistent colors and wonky white balance. If your Pixel 2 exhibits any issues with the display, contact Google about a...

Review: Google Pixel 2

 

In almost every way, the Pixel 2 is the iPhone of Android phones. And that's a compliment.

There is no better Android phone. The camera is amazing, and it has as much to do with the software as the hardware. Runs pure Android Oreo, and you get security updates before everyone else. Always-on notifications, including a tiny song-identifying...

The smaller of the two phones has fat bezels, which belie its status as a premium device. Image stabilization during video capture is not foolproof. Welcome to Dongleland.

Google Pixel 2

 

The Pixel 2 brings exclusive Google Assistant features you can't get on any other phone, and lets you trigger them with a squeeze.

Promising camera. Fast processor. Nice build. Exclusive Assistant features.

Small screen and big bezels for the size. No headphone jack.

There's a smooth set of stair steps up the Android flagship price ladder. The OnePlus 5 costs $479. The Pixel 2 is $649. The Galaxy S8 clocks in around $720, the Pixel 2 XL is $849, and the Galaxy Note 8 is in the $900 zone.

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

 

With many of the Pixel 3's features coming to Pixel 2, it might be worth holding on to it a little longer.

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, that's...

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
