The smartphone market is very competitive today. With so many different companies launching a new phone every single day, it’s becoming difficult for the consumers equally to choose the best phone. Even the leading brands in the world are trying to manufacture phones from all ranges, luxury to standard smartphones. When Google launched the Pixel 2 in India last year, there was a lot of buzz around this phone if it can give better results than it’s predecessor. Google worked really hard to make sure it can overcome all the nuances of the past and launch a better version of Pixel as Pixel 2. Here is a detailed story on Google Pixel 2 – All things you need to know about this smartphone from Google.
The Pixel 2 sits right inside the box as you open it. The just black color makes it all the more tempting as it shines inside the box. It comes in the standard box with the accessories that are worth noticing. The charger and the c-type USB cable are the same you as find them in almost all new phones. What’s worth noticing is the Type-C to Type-A Quick Switch Adapter and the type C to 3.5mm dongle which tells us that the Google Pixel lacks a 3.5mm jack. It was difficult for us to hold on and we soon jumped to powering on the device quickly.
Things to look forward to in Pixel 2:
1) The Display:
It comes with a 5 inch Full HD AMOLED display and produces really sharp display. The 440ppi density shows the color contrast perfectly and you can actually find the blacks to be black in this phone. The screen is easy to use even in broad sunlight without any reading issues.
It has the best camera we have ever used in a smartphone. Period! The 12.2MP camera with Dual-Pixel Autofocus and Dual LED Flash makes it a killer. We truly loved the portrait mode from the UI and enjoyed traveling with this to our Palace on Wheels journey. The camera can record 4K and slow-motion videos with superb speed and quality. The shutter speed of the camera is immensely quick to capture several photos in a row.
3) The Unlimited Storage:
Google now provides unlimited storage for all your Pixel 2 videos and photos in your Google account till January 2021. This means you don’t need to worry if you want to capture your entire trip to 4K. Just pull out your phone and start shooting, Google will take care of the rest.
Google Pixel 2 is lighter than most of its competitors. With a sleek rectangular design without rounded edges, holding this device in the hand feels good. The size of the phone and the premium glass finish on the top makes it your perfect partner during travel. We also liked the speakers of this phone as they are good for watching movies or listening to music when you don’t want to carry the USB-C to 3.5mm jack.
