Google Pixel 2 XL is one of the most desirable smartphones on our list and it has surprised us by its fantastic features such as excellent camera, Google lens feature, waterproofing qualities and much more.
Though it has lost the much appreciated 3.5 mm headphone jack, it has a unique design and the Active Edge technology which makes it better than the previous models. It is bigger and sharper than Google Pixel XL and the thinner bezels make it equally attractive as other high-end phones like Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone X. This Google Pixel 2 XL review will discuss the best features of the top-notch smartphone.
Google Pixel 2 XL Features:
Though Google Pixel 2 XL reviews suggest that the phone looks like a bezel-less one, but actually it has a display with rounded corners. Pixel 2 XL has a 18:9 display and there are bezels present prominently on the sides. This is the reason Pixel 2 XL appears so big and beautiful. The edges are pressure sensitive and whenever they are squeezed, the Assistant gets activated. The bezel has some decent and powerful stereo speakers and there is no headphone jack present for the IP67 waterproofing purposes. The back of the phone is made up of aluminum and glass and there is a USB-C 3.5 mm port to allow connectivity.
The Google Pixel 2 XL camera is a very impressive one and is one of the bests too. Though there are many dual-lens smartphones on the market but this single lens camera can perform better than all of them. The back camera is of 12.2 MP and it has an f/1.8 aperture whereas the front camera is of 8 MP with an f/2.4 aperture. The camera has a faster autofocus and the Portrait mode works amazingly on both, the front and the rear cameras. The focus and lightning are done perfectly and the colors are vibrant and accurate as needed.
