The Pixel 2 XL is a stunning new smartphone that looks fresh and pleasing to the eye. It is sure to grab attention from onlookers. It sports an aluminum unibody framework and the matte finish makes it look all the more stylish. We were please to see that the smartphone does not attract any fingerprints on the surface and offers a really good grip on the hands.
Both front and rear cameras are really good and they can capture some really brilliant pictures in different conditions. The video quality is also decent, at least at par with what you expect from a company like Google.
The handset is capable of handling the most recent and advanced software by Google. It is one of the few mobile phones that support Android’s Oreo. So, you can expect to see only useful features, no devious icons or useless skins.
The mobile phone is powered by a 3520 mAh battery and a fully charged battery can last for about a day and half. However, the lack of wireless charging comes across as a huge disappointment for the users. The saving grace is that Google offers a fast charger in the package and this really does a good job at juicing up the phone really fast.
Overall, we feel the Google Pixel 2 XL is a really good smartphone powered by one of the best versions of Android and it feels really good to hold. It comes with minimum bezel and a stunning camera to wow the users. We only wish the screen was a bit livelier to make it score high in terms of competition.
