The Google Pixel 2 has seemed liked the neglected child since launch. It didn’t get the fancy 18:9 display as its bigger brother and is pretty much absent from most of Google’s offline marketing materials, which puts the Pixel 2 XL front and centre. We get it, after all, the Pixel 2 XL is the prettier looking of the two and commands a higher premium, so we guess it makes sense for Google to give it maximum visibility. However, Google’s more expensive offering has been having its fair share of issues ever since it launched, which has cast a sort of bad aura around it. That’s not to say the Pixel 2 is immune to these issues, but at least most of them seem to be fixable through software.

Google Pixel 2 Summary

The Pixel 2 is the smaller sibling of the Pixel 2 XL, which features a 5-inch OLED display and the same aluminium build with a textured coating in the Just Black version. There are stereo speakers in the front, which sound great and the fingerprint sensor is placed at the back. It’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of storage. App performance is excellent and the phone doesn’t heat up too often. The display offers good viewing angles and doesn’t suffer from the blue tint issue that plagues the Pixel 2 XL. Camera performance is also really good, although low light landscapes stills and video exhibit some degree of noise. Battery life is decent too, although don’t expect more than a day’s worth of usage with the 2700mAh capacity.

  • So close to perfect.
    Carl Christian Hansson (Dec 1, 2018) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    Have to disagree with the other reviews here. I've had an iPhone for 8 years and always been happy with that. Until I got this phone - half the price, 3x storage and probably twice as fast. Best swap I've made so far. The only issue is that the charger constantly falls out of the phone. I've not even had the phone for a year (11 months), and it already seems like the charger-input is destroyed. That's my only issue with the phone (yeah, I've cleaned the charger area several times). If it wouldn't have been for the charger issue, this phone would've been perfect. Still the best I've had. Recommended.

    Is there a provision to insert a memory card to expand the memory on this phone? Moreover the Ah rating of this phone looks very poor. you need to carry power bank else the usage can be limited only to phone and no videos and games with this Ah capacity.

  • STOP THE HATE
    Shiv Jethi (Nov 15, 2017) on Amazon
    People will say it's got bezels.. it has screen issues, It has no headphone jack!But what they don't get it's that! It's the best ANDROID PHONE Till date and it's camera is the highest rated ever, not to forget the squeeze functionality to launch Google assistant. Google is a software inherited company and is doing as promised and expected by it! Best phone indeed

  • If you can afford it, then go for it
    GURUPRASAD C NAIK (Feb 7, 2018) on Amazon
    Google is great in making the software suitable for the device. Even though the specs are average, software makes it far more better than other phones available in the market.
