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

Smartphone design has taken a big step in the right direction in 2017 and 2018, but battery life hasn’t seen similar advances. I managed to get just about day of use from the Pixel off a single charge, and the same is true of the Pixel 2

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

 

The best camera 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 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 Android smartphone, redefined

 

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...

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...

Pixel 2 review: A great smartphone that still holds its own against the Galaxy S9

 

This time, it's the smaller Pixel that deserves all the plaudits; it's an all-round brilliant smartphone

So, the million dollar question (well, £629 – blame the weak pound): should you buy the Google Pixel 2? That’s not quite the straightforward yes or no question it appears on paper and depends a lot on your personal preference. Let’s try and personalise...

Review: Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL

 

Google has stepped up its hardware game in 2017. Aside from a S, M and L version of the Google Home smart speaker, it is also fielding an all new premium Pixelbook 2-in-1, an intriguing smart assistant-powered Pixel Buds headset (with real-time...

The new Pixel 2 cameras are even better and have the added advantage of even more A.I. to improve the quality of photos and videos.

Google Pixel 2 review

 

It's Google's smartest smartphone yet, but don't expect mind-blowing design

Well made handset now with water resistance; Brilliant camera with smart features; Active Edge works well with the Google Assistant

Outdated 2016-era design; Overly large bezels; Expensive for a minor upgrade over the Pixel

In a vacuum the Pixel 2 is a great Android smartphone, with a vibrant display, and a solid construction with innovative squeezable edges. However, in the face of stiff competition from Samsung, LG and OnePlus, the Pixel 2 looks outdated, with only its...
