Google, the Android inventor and search engine giant, ditched its nexus lineup last year for a new series under the moniker “Pixel”. The first Pixel phone that came from Google was a great success, as it came with impressive specs as well as the best camera you can find on a smartphone during that period. It features all the top notch specs of Nexus line-up including the latest Android and the all new Google Assistant baked into the OS. Now the tech giant have launched the second generation of the Pixel, known as the Google Pixel 2. In this post you will get to see a brief review of the Google Pixel 2, revealing the pros and cons of its features and price you can buy it.
Google Pixel 2 Features
Top notch Spec sheet
It is obvious that every single smartphone coming from Google has top notch spec sheets and also come with the latest Android operating system. The Google Pixel 2 will run on the Android Oreo out-of-the-box and also boasts of the latest Snapdragon 835 processor and a whooping 6GB or RAM. With these features, you are rest assured that your Google Pixel 2 won’t lack anything as far as performance is concerned.
While the Google Pixel 2 have a 5inch display, it still look brilliant considering the resolution it came with. Google powered the display with a 2K resolution which resut in a pixel density of 587ppi. This means that the Pixel 2 offers brilliant legibility in any condition and also offers good colours when you are watching videos with it.
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.
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. Though Google has always maintained their stand of non-expandable storage, and it seems it will not change even with the nest generation. The new Pixel 2 cmoes with a 64GB storage on board, take a look at its full specifications below.
