Google Pixel 2 by Google is apparently a modified version of last year's Google Pixel. This phone is now out for sale and is impressing many gadget lovers with its revamped package of top end features from its predecessor. It runs on Android 8.0 version which is the top end of Operating System. Also, it includes attractive lineament, 5” AMOLED display, and a large, 2700mAh battery power. The camera was the most stunning feature from the last year's hit – Google Pixel. The same legacy is continued here and the all new Pixel 2 boasts of a pair of 12.2 MP main and 8MP front-facing snappers. Undoubtedly, both of these shooters come clad with many image enhancing features which you may expect from a top end camera mobile phone like the Pixel 2. Aside from having these, the newer handset also flaunts many useful features like fast battery charging, quick launch to Google Assistance, rear-mounted fingerprint reader, an IP67 ratting for outstanding protection against water and dust, and many more. What is more exciting, this device is launched with a whole new bunch of colorful versions which includes Kinda Blue, Just Black, and Clearly White. This phone is available online and you can buy it from a reputed e-shop in India.
A Slimmer Handset that is Just Perfect for Single Handed Operation
The Google Pixel 2 looks very similar to its counterpart. However, at 145.7 X 69.7 X 7.8 mm, it measures roughly the same as Apple iPhone 8. Also, just like iPhone 8, this model comprises slightly thick bezels around 5” display screen. The slimmer back panel contains main camera on its top, just like Google Pixel, is covered with a glass panel. However, the fingerprint scanner below the camera does not come covered with one such panel. The best part about this handset's design is that it is very comfortable to hold and is a perfect device for single handed operations. However, this 143 grams phone is slightly heavy than Lenovo Vibe X S960. Another great feature that is incorporated with phone's design is, you can launch the Google Assistant by pressing its pressure sensitive sides with a great force. This feature is really very useful and is the same which you have seen with HTC U11.
Stunning Screen Technology for Delivering High Quality Visual Performance
The screen on the new Google Pixel 2 is an Always-On-Display. It measures 5-inches and gives the same dimension to the phone as Lenovo Zuk Z2 Pro. Moreover, the screen uses the AMOLED capacitive touchscreen technology which is a great feature as it makes the handset to deliver high quality visual contents to the handset users. On the other hand, the higher screen resolution at 1080 X 1920 Pixels, putting at 441ppi density, results into excellent quality content on the screen; making it an ideal device for watching high definition movies, viewing images, and playing high end Android games. There are multiple benefits associated with this screen technology, some of which are increased responsiveness while navigating on the screen, higher level of screen brightness even under bright sunlight, and impressive viewing angles. You will also find the same display on OnePLus 5. What is more, the screen on Pixel 2 comes protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for excellent scratch resistance. You can also compare the mobile phone's screen with several other top models on a price comparison site which also gives you fair idea on many e-stores in India selling this handset at a reasonable price.
Professional Camera Which Lets You Take Awesome Pictures
As you all know, the camera has been the best part of any flagship phone by Google. Just like Google pixel, the Pixel 2 also boasts of a 12.2 MP main camera which produces really awesome images for you. However, the rear snapper on Pixel 2 shows many improvements from its previous smartphone and uses a wider f/1.8 aperture along with Optical Image Stabilization for that fantastic video footage. Also, this shooter includes many interesting enhancements such as Faux Blur Effect. This feature lets you click professional looking portraits via blurring the background to emphasize the foreground. What is more, this portrait mode functionality also works better on the selfie camera and you can come up with clearer selfies via using the 8 MP front facing camera of the device. For video recording, the dual pixel main camera uses both EIS and OIS features and records 2160p videos at 30fps. Also, this camera is capable of recording a video footage in a resolution of 1080p. The point to be noted here, this camera phone comes closer to the likes of Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8 which are considered as the best camera mobile phones available so far.
Snapdragon 835 which Is Super Fast in Operation
This handset packs snapdragon 835 processor from Qualcomm MSM 8998 which is accompanied by an Octa-core CPU and Adreno 540 GPU. Whilst, the phone runs on Android 8.0 OS. It is the most powerful processor which is cycled in at 2.35 GHZ. The same hardware combination is found on Xiaomi Mi 6 which made this device the most powerful smartphone available in terms of processing power. Furthermore, This hardware unit is also backed up by 4GB RAM along with 64GB internal space. Interesting to know that the Google Pixel 2 has another variant with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of ROM. However, you will disappoint to hear that none of the versions supports the microSD card. Another smartphone that have ditched the MicroSD card is Apple iPhone 7 which comes with 2GB of RAM along with three internal memory versions – 32, 128, and 256GB. Also, to run this most impressive smartphone, there is 2700mAh battery which comes supported with fast battery charging feature to let the device charge in just no time.
