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 Smartphone Review


Small, but powerful! The smallish Pixel 2 smartphone features a 5-inch 16:9 display. In addition to being slightly cheaper, this is the only difference when compared with its bigger brother. The camera has managed to impress us but battery life is a...

fast SoC ; modern Android with long update cycle ; excellent camera ; good speakers ; fast LTE ; aptX HD ; free cloud storage for pictures and videos ; IP67

display could be brighter ; no dual-SIM ; no microSD slot ; PWM ; no more MIMO-WLAN

Google’s focus for and main selling point of its latest smartphones is the combination of hardware, software, and artificial intelligence that these two constitute. The Google Pixel 2 is certainly a very good smartphone, even though the design is a...

Google Pixel 2


Pixel 2 review, news, specs, features and price: Is this the best phone yet from Google? 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, 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

Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL: Everything you need to know about Google's new flagships


The follow-up to Google's flagship Pixel phone brings major changes. Here's what's different and not so different between the two phones.

It's hard to say. We didn't experience any issues with the Pixel 2 XL screen on our review unit, but other reviewers have noticed inconsistent colors and wonky white balance. If your Pixel 2 exhibits any issues with the display, contact Google about a...

Google Pixel 2 review: The Android smartphone, redefined – made better with this Black Friday deal


Google's Pixel 2 is waving the flag for Android once again – and this Black Friday deal is criminal

Top-notch performance ; Much better display than the Pixel 2 XL ; The best smartphone camera, ever


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: No frills, but a great camera and fast Android updates


Google's second-generation Pixel handsets are again available in two sizes. We've already put the larger, 6-inch Pixel 2 XL through its paces. On test here is the smaller, less expensive, 5-inch Pixel 2 . Like the Pixel 2 XL, the Pixel 2 comes in two...

Very good performance ; Great camera ; Fast battery charging ; IP67 dust and water resistance ; Guaranteed speedy Android updates ; Clever use of fingerprint reader and squeezable sides

Moderate battery life ; Tall chassis ; No microSD slot or 3.5mm headphone jack ; No wireless charging

Google Pixel 2 review


The true Pixel experience in a (slightly) smaller package and minus the display issues - this is the Google Pixel 2 in size Medium and not Extra Large.

Google Pixel 2 Review


The Pixel 2 is a brilliantly fast, compact smartphone with a stunning camera.

Blazing fast speed ; Great software experience, fast updates ; Excellent camera ; IP67 water-resistant ; Compact, colorful screen

No headphone jack ; Average battery life ; Chunky edges around screen, dated design

Review: Google Pixel 2


In almost every way, the Pixel 2 is the iPhone of Android phones. And that's a compliment.

There is no better Android phone. The camera is amazing, and it has as much to do with the software as the hardware. Runs pure Android Oreo, and you get security updates before everyone else. Always-on notifications, including a tiny song-identifying...

The smaller of the two phones has fat bezels, which belie its status as a premium device. Image stabilization during video capture is not foolproof. Welcome to Dongleland.
