Why You Should Buy Google Pixel 2 XL Over The iPhone X

Why You Should Buy Google Pixel 2 XL Over The iPhone X

This feels like the final nail in the coffin for both landline and mobile network providers - slowly eradicating the need for the traditional phone contract.

The announcement of the new Google Pixel smartphone brought many surprises - some good and some bad. The search engine giant has tightly integrated the Assistant with nearly every aspect of the Pixel 2 XL.

The five-inch Pixel 2 with AMOLED display, priced at $649 and up, and the six-inch Pixel 2 XL with pOLED screen, which starts at $849, are set to begin shipping on October 19, although several reports indicate that early demand has already delayed the expected arrival of the larger device by almost a month. The Pixel 2 XL has a giant 6-inch display with slim bezels, and comes with the latest Android Oreo software.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are launched with the e-SIM feature but Indian variants will be supporting single nano-SIM. Unlike the previous set-up wherein speakers would have to tap the microphone and speak into it to have the utterance translated, and then show it to the other party for them to understand, Google offers a conversation-like experience through Pixel Buds. "The Pixel 2's photo performance is really impressive at 99, and just one point short of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which scored an incredible 100 in our photo category", wrote the reputed website in its review.

Both Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL smartphones are available in two storage variants of 64GB/128GB; there is no microSD card slot so the storage is not expandable. We'll be able to test this and see how accurate it is when the Pixel 2 is available.

Google's result is phenomenal given its different approach but it's also a sign of larger things to come as far as consumer gadgets are concerned.

Also, you do not get any earphones with your Pixel 2.

With Google also abandoning the 3.5mm headphone jack, it is likely that we're going to see less and less of it in future devices.

Google Clips is a lightweight, hands-free camera that can take photos and video remotely and sync the clips directly to a connected phone.

The Pixel 2 costs £629 with 64GB of storage and £729 for 128GB. You basically get free, unlimited original-quality storage for photos and videos taken with Pixel until January 15, 2021, and high-quality storage for all later uploads. However, the photos and videos are not edited as claimed by the Google employee.

Google has provided a better platform of Google Photos to get your photos anytime as per your requirement and convenience.
