Dual camera

The last generation Google pixel has a perfect camera just like I stated earlier, and it was rated the best camera smartphone on the market by DxOMark, and it is still one of the best till date. Google took the camera prowess a step ahead with the Google Pixel 2, as it features the same camera module in a dual camera setup. The front camera of the Pixel 2 is even upgraded to 8MP.

Cons

No expandable storage

With the Google Pixel 2 having the best camera and spec sheets in the smartphone market and lacking the chance to expand its storage when needed, could be a deal breaker.

The new Pixel 2 cmoes with a 64GB storage on board, take a look at its full specifications below.
