Android version and market relevance

The company Google in October 2017 officially announced its new smartphone Google Pixel 2 XL in the series of mobile devices Pixel.

“Out of the box” on the new smartphone installed Android 8.0 Oreo, which did not receive any version updates.

Screen, body and battery

P-OLED touchscreen with a diagonal 6″ mounted on the front panel Google Pixel 2 XL, thickness 7.9 mm, which has a dust and water protection.

The battery in Google Pixel 2 XL is installed on 3 520 mAh. It can be said that by today′s standards, such a volume is the minimum acceptable, we recommend looking at other smartphones with a powerful battery.

Main camera and selfie camera

Smartphone Google Pixel 2 XL got ordinary main camera on 12.2 MP and the frontcamera on 8 MP. If you judge only by the number of megapixels, then the main camera is very weak. But the frontcamera not very good, we have in our catalog real selfie smartphones.

Processor and Internal Memory

After a lot of leaks, we now know all characteristics of the Google Pixel 2 XL. The smartphone received 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 835. RAM is built-in 4 GB.

But the most interesting is the built-in memory of 64 GB and plus another option for 128 GB. But memory cards, unfortunately, with this smartphone, you can not use, because the manufacturer did not provide for them a slot.

Price for Google Pixel 2 XL: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone Google Pixel 2 XL got into our price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500” and began to be sold in November 2017 at a price of $940. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. Google Pixel 2 XL is a very smart smartphone with a huge screen and a conventional main camera, and the front camera did not turn out super cool. And to all this we add that the battery here is absolutely normal.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.
