Everyone has been curious about Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Google’s latest flagship phones which promise to bring the smart back in smartphones. With newly improved and smarter google Assistant, amazing cameras and cool phone accessories, the latest phones from Google have got what it takes to go head to head with the top offerings from Apple and Samsung.
Here are five reasons why you should totally go and buy these latest smartphones from Google:
7) The Experience
Just like the Nexus line in the past, getting a Pixel means buying into the Google experience. Free of any unwanted bloatware, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL offer the purest form of Android for its users. And because of the perfect combination of tight optimizations and clean software, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are much faster and more reliable than any phone that is being offered in the present market.
6) The Timely Updates
As promised by Google, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be fully supported and updated until 2020, which means that these phones will feature the best and latest software from Android O to Android R. You might miss out on a feature or two along the way though, as indicated by last year’s exclusion of Google’s “Now Playing” feature on last year’s Pixels phone.
5) The Long Battery Life
Although both of these phones can be charged super fast, you can easily go most of the day without having to plug in. According to people who have tested it, the Google Pixel 2 XL can last up to 12 hours, making it one of the longest lasting phones on the market right now.
4) The Front Facing Speakers
Everyone loved the front-facing speakers of past Google phones like the Nexus 5X and 6P. Unfortunately, for reasons unknown, they disappeared with last year’s Pixels, which featured a weak-sounding speaker grill that goes along its bottom edge. Luckily, this year’s Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have brought back the awfully-missed front-facing speakers that are not only louder, they also direct audio in the right direction.
3) Specially Made For Google
Along with the announcement of the new Pixels phone, Google also launched “Made for Google”, a new initiative which aims to help users simplify the confusing world of accessories by highlighting those third-party headphones, cases and USB-C peripherals that are Google-approved. This program creates a much needed well-integrated ecosystem when it comes to Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL’s accessories.
2) The Cameras
Just like last year’s Pixels, the latest google phones feature the best cameras that you can imagine on a smartphone. With rear cameras that boast a score of 98 by DxOMark and an 8MP cameras at the front, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL’s photo capabilities will no doubt amaze those that have already used a Galaxy
Note 8 or even the latest iPhone. But that is not all, with the latest Google phones, you can have unlimited storage for your pictures (in full resolution) in Google Photos.
1) The Google Lens Feature
Working on both camera and photo apps, Google Lens is a really cool new feature which takes object recognition to the next level. For example, say you point your camera at a movie poster or a book. In an instant, Google Assistant can fetch reviews and other additional helpful information about the subject. Another great thing about Google Lens is that it is also capable of identifying email addresses, phone numbers and URLs in photos.
