IT IS GOOD
Pixel 2 camera really does stand out. Like last year’s models, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have the same single-lens set-up. Google decided to only differentiate its costlier XL version with a larger screen and bigger battery. The company also put the same photo tricks you get with dual-camera iPhone. You can get the background blurring broken effect on both the front and rear-facing camera.
The company’s new on-demand object recognition tool, Google Lens, is in-built. Pixel 2 is the first phone to fully support the platform, and Google says it will for now work with a handful of useful-sounding categories like books, movie posters, business cards and landmarks.
With every new phone there are some drawbacks and Pixel is no different. Both the devices have the same camera. This means you are paying more money on a device that has only a larger screen and a bigger battery. Apple, which reserves the dual-camera set-up for its larger iPhone Plus line, charges less for its iPhone 8 Plus and gives buyers the added benefit of an improved camera.
Following Apple, Lenovo and LeEco, Google have decided to scrap the 3.5mm headphone jack on the new devices. This will make people think it over as many want to charge their phone and listen to music at the same time.
Finally, coming to the customers who are buying the product - Pixel 2 and XL are great buys and it is a much better upgrade for many. But then people also have to weigh in the slight flaws.
