Stunning disolay

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.
