Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL review

While a year ago observed the dispatch of the Pixel mark, this year, saw Google attempt to influence the Pixel 2 to look extraordinary. After numerous gossipy tidbits and releases, the cell phones were at last declared at the 'Made by Google' occasion, which additionally observed the dispatch of the brand's other equipment items including some new shrewd speakers and the Pixel Buds, new earphones territory by Google. 

Be that as it may, everyone's eyes were on the Google Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL. The cell phones highlighted the most recent equipment and the most recent programming from Google also. In any case, if one detail emerged from everything, it must be those thick bezels. 

Through 2017, Android fans were dealt with, many launches by bezel-less plans. Samsung made three (S8, S8+ and Note 8), LG reported the V30 (coming to India one month from now) and even Xiaomi propelled its Mi Mix 2 with a nearly edge-to-edge appearance. So in spite of the breaks, it was difficult to trust that Google would really dispatch a 'hostile to iPhone X', a cell phone that truly challenges the edge-to-edge approach of the iPhone, with a cell phone that is stacked with more bezel than every one of the leads in 2017 consolidated. What's more, that is only the Pixel 2! 

At that point came the Pixel 2 XL with its own arrangement of show issues, which was not gotten too well by the media. 

So when I got both the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL for audit, I sort of recognized what's in store – overrated Android cell phones, that truly have neither rhyme nor reason since they look obsolete. However, at that point I turned on Google's mystery weapon, the camera. What's more, trust me, it changed my conclusion about the Pixel 2, if not the Pixel 2 XL. 

Assemble and Design 

Beginning off with the littler Pixel 2, it would appear that the more seasoned Pixel show. The outline appears like an advancement of the Pixel which moves on from an adjusted look to one with more honed edges around the show and less adjusted corners around the back. Nature of the body is first rate. No protests here. 

The general plan helps me a considerable measure to remember the Nokia 6 with the unmistakable speaker grille at the best and the base and sparkly angled edges around the bezel. 

The issue complete on the back of the Pixel 2 is feels awesome and opposes fingerprints.

Flip it on its back and it's anything but difficult to see the cell phone's likeness to the Pixel family. The unmistakable glass window has now become shorter and takes up just a fourth of the back when contrasted with the more seasoned model. 

Moving to the greater Pixel 2 XL, with a 6-inch show. I discovered it too extensive and awkward for one-gave use, however not as enormous as the mammoth Xiaomi Mi Mix 2. Once more, similar to the Pixel 2, the cell phone show is encompassed by thick bezels and it doesn't qualify as a bezel-less show or an edge to edge one. It's only a taller 18:9 proportion unit brandishing a QHD+ determination. 

The front face of the 2 XL is somewhat unique and more iPhone-like with a bended (very nearly 3D) section of glass. While I value the plan exertion by Google here, that lovely chunk of glass loses its appeal on account of the exhausting outline of the metal case that encompasses it. Had Google (or LG) given it a stone like appearance with adjusted sides, it would have looked entirely cool. Be that as it may, it didn't, so it doesn't. 

While the plan is best depicted as exhausting, I appreciated the new covering that Google has connected to both cell phones. It feels like the development of OnePlus One' sandstone complete, yet a considerable measure smoother (you can't utilize this one as a nail record). It doesn't get any fingerprints and it is very impervious to the typical scratches. The covering sort of helps to remember the extreme liner material connected on the bed of get truck. A similar covering likewise figured out how to shroud the radio wire lines, ones that are non-existent on the 2 XL and scarcely noticeable on the glossy edge encompassing the thick bezels of the Pixel 2. 

Normal outline aside, there were some different issues that I looked in the wake of utilizing the telephones for two weeks. Both cell phones appeared to do not have any kind of oleophobic covering. While the Pixel 2 XL being an officially utilized survey unit, it was a smudgy wreckage. Not something one would anticipate from a cell phone that is evaluated at Rs 73,000. 

This applies to both the front screen and the back glass window and is by all accounts the flawed utilization of the oleophobic covering, best case scenario. The covering for the most part takes a very long time to fall off on iPhones so it is amazing that with not as much as a month of utilization, it's as of now off and transforms the glass bits of the cell phone into a smear loaded chaos. I didn't confront a comparable issue with the littler Pixel 2. 

Another issue with the Pixel 2 XL was the way effectively the matte covering on the metal got fingerprints and smircesh. To compound the situation, it was hard (relatively inconceivable) to wipe them off. Once more, not something you would anticipate from a cell phone that costs Rs 73,000. To exacerbate the situation, the Pixel 2's covering was okay and opposed any smircesh and fingerprints extremely well. 

While I would love to grumble about how the new Apple iPhone 8 models look dated for the current year, Google could have completed a considerable measure better in this office as opposed to going for the unremarkable person look; one that just can't resist the wonderful Samsung Galaxy S8, the Note 8 or even the sparkling HTC U11. 


Not at all like a year ago, the current year's Google Pixel 2 kin may look somewhat changed outwardly, however pack in nearly a similar equipment within. The Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL vary just with regards to the show size and battery limit. 

On the front, you get a 5.0-inch Full HD AMOLED show (made by Samsung) on the Pixel 2, while the Pixel 2 XL gets a LG-made P-OLED QHD+ unit with a taller 18:9 show proportion. 

Inside, both cell phones get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC with 4 GB RAM alongside 64 GB and 128 GB interior stockpiling alternatives. 

There's a 8 MP camera with a f/2.4 opening on the front and a 12 MP camera with a f/1.8 gap on the back. The back camera highlights optical picture adjustment (OIS) and electronic picture adjustment (EIS) alongside 'double pixel' innovation. There's additionally some machine learning bits that I will underline on in the camera segment of this survey. 

Availability choices incorporate an E-SIM and a solitary nano-SIM opening that gives you a chance to hook on to 4G LTE radios. At that point there's the standard lead choices like Dual-Band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/air conditioning, Bluetooth v5.0 with LE, NFC, GPS and USB 2.0 Type-C port with a reversible connector. 

The unique mark peruser sits on the back and the two gadgets additionally incorporate an Active Edge that gives you a chance to crush the base portion of telephone to dispatch the Google Assistant. 

The Pixel 2 includes a 2,700 mAh battery while the Pixel 2 XL packs in a bigger 3,520 mAh unit, which is truly substantial given its thin 7.9 mm waistline. The two units are IP67 confirmed tidy and water safe up to 1 meter for 30 minutes. 


Honestly, I have no issues with the show on the Pixel 2. The Samsung-influenced AMOLED to show displayed the most precise hues conceivable with a trace of immersion. Truth be told, numerous accepted that it wasn't an AMOLED unit in any case since it didn't firmly exhibit the average shading moving that we are accustomed to seeing on the top notch leaders from Samsung. There's no perceptible red-tinge or blue tinge here either and it nearly gives you the feeling that you are taking a gander at a LCD show. It's splendid as well, and I had no issues utilizing it in coordinate daylight. 

While Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 may feature punchier hues, the Pixel 2 has the more regular and exact tones. Sharpness was not an issue with a pixel thickness of 441 ppi. In the event that you don't care for the normal hues then you can change the same in the shading settings to Saturated for distinctive hues. 

Without a doubt, the show's just rival is the iPhone 8's TrueTone LCD show and obviously the iPhone X's Super Retina organic light-emitting diode unit, that is practically fantastic right now. 

Moving to the Pixel 2 XL, it doesn't approach. One take a gander at the show off
