Google Pixel 2 XL review
Introducing Google’s finest
The Pixel 2 XL with a dazzling full-screen display, boasts of a camera that’s in a league of its own. The smart rear end camera with dual-pixel autofocus also comes with optical and electronic image stabilization, capturing your precious moments with remarkable picture quality in any light. tune in to music, watch movies or play games all day long with the fast-charging battery. Take operative control of your device with the built-in Google Assistant.
The Google Pixel 2 XL is a stunning fruit to bear from the company’s still-young focus on merge its software and hardware efforts. It’s refined, confidently serving as a showcase of how far Google’s design (and the stock Android skill powering it) have come in the past few years.
Plus, it’s a launching point for a few interesting debuts, like the bright Google Lens feature and the slick, new Pixel Launcher and, now, the Android P beta.
It’s hard to believe that the world of smartphones is just a decade old. In such a short span of time, the way people communicate has changed, and for a large chunk of people, smartphones are their only way of accessing the world wide web. While Apple asserts that its latest, the iPhone X (first influence) – represents the future of smartphones, I believe Google has managed to play catch up fairly quickly. In just its second generation, the Pixel 2 XL solves many of the matter we had with the first-gen offerings. The best part is that the search juggernaut is following Apple’s playbook – combining both hardware and software to deliver a seamless experience

Depending on who you ask, last year’s Google Pixel phones either looked like a good start for the line, a little too iPhone or just a peculiar shade of futurism that didn’t sit completely right.
One of the biggest annoyances with Apple’s phones is that the company always differentiates between its two flagship models by giving the larger model additional features in the camera department. I really like that Google hasn’t followed suit, secure both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are on parity.

Google Pixel 2 XL review
Even if you’re someone who really puts their tech to the task, you’ll unquestionably still achieve a full day of use. Android Oreo has some new smarts built-in to help manage the background use of apps with the goal being to reach more efficiency and less data use.
Sure, the shell doesn’t really allow it, but many expected Google to find a way around that problem given its close collaboration with Qualcomm.
