Google Pixel 2 has been on the market for a little over a year now as a successor to the Pixel. Described as the iPhone for Android lovers, the device comes with a better way to capture, store, and see the world.
Google Pixel 2 features a smart camera that takes beautiful photos in any light, a fast-charging battery and the Google Assistant built-in.

Google Pixel 2 features and specs
The Google Pixel 2 is the premier Android device that proves that two rear cameras aren’t always better than one on a phone, especially if you favor photo quality over the latest all-screen designs.
Design & Display
The 5.0-inch device is a cool one in the hands. If you are a fan of cute device powerhouses, then this is for you. Aside that fact that it doesn’t come with a bezel-less display, this is just an awesome piece of technology as far as the design is concerned.
It is IP67 waterproof (meaning it can survive underwater up to 1m or 3.3ft down for an hour) and retain a glass-and-metal design on the back, albeit with less glass toward the top.
You won’t find a headphone jack on this phone, nor even USB-C earbuds inside the box – it comes with just a simple 3.5mm-to-USB-C adapter.
At 1080p, the Google Pixel 2’s screen is bright and colorful, though not as rich as a best-in-class Samsung smartphone screen.
The device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, coupled with 4 GB LPDDR4X RAM and 64GB internal storage.
The camera is the best part of the Pixel 2 experience. Pictures are consistently in focus and true-to-life while still looking vibrant. Color accuracy is what Google gets right.
Google’s 12.2MP main camera, with an f/1.8 aperture, and 8MP selfie camera, with an f/2.4 aperture, bests its competition in almost all ways. It has a background-blurring portrait mode both on the front and back camera, 240fps slow motion video and settings.
The Pixel 2 is powered by a 2,700mAh battery which gets an all day battery life with a single charge and average usage. It also comes with the fast charging feature.
