Android version and market relevance

New smartphone Google Pixel 2 introduced a company Google in October 2017. It has Android version 8.0 Oreo, which, unfortunately, it will not be possible to update, because the manufacturer did not take care of it.

Well, what can I say, Google Pixel 2 is a smartphone of 2017 with fairly normal characteristics, which is located in our price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”.

Screen, body and battery

Moderately large 5-inch screen, made by technology AMOLED, installed in the smartphone Google Pixel 2.

The larger the screen, the larger the case. But in addition to the width and height of the hull, its thickness is important. At Google Pixel 2 the thickness of the case is 7.8 mm, which turns out to be thick enough, maybe you will not be comfortable holding such a device in your hand.

The battery and the operating time also depend on the screen size. At Google Pixel 2 installed battery for 2 700 mAh, and, as you can guess, it will not last long. We advise you to look in the catalog on smartphones with a powerful battery, there is a good choice from different manufacturers.

Of the features of the case and form factor, it is worth noting protection against ingress of water and dust inside the body.

Main camera and selfie camera

The smartphone Google Pixel 2 has two cameras: the main camera on 12.2 MP and the front camera on 8 MP. If you look at the quality of the photo of the main camera, then you hardly will be satisfied with the quality of these photos, because the camera is rather weak. We advise buying (well, or at least look) camera phones. This is smartphones with very good cameras on the market.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Google Pixel 2 is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 835. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 4 GB.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications only on the built-in smartphone memory, because the support for memory cards is not implemented here. The manufacturer releases several versions of this smartphone with different memory sizes: 64/128 GB. Before buying, be sure to decide how many gigabytes you need.

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

So we told about flagship powerful smartphone Google Pixel 2 with a large screen, conventional main camera and weak frontal, and still there is a weak battery.

All these characteristics in 2017 may be good, but the time goes by and the smartphone will somehow become obsolete in half a year of the beginning of sales. And by the way, to sell it start in November 2017 at a price of $800. This is the official price from the manufacturer without taxes and fees, so it can differ in each country, and not only for different sellers.

Before you buy Google Pixel 2, be sure to check out all the photos and video reviews on it, or better still go to the offline store (electronics supermarket) and twist it in your hand. And already then, based on the emotions received from the smartphone, make the decision to buy.

And if Google Pixel 2 is not already sold, when you are reading this text, then do not be upset. We advise you to always visit the page DROID smartphones, where we collect only the most current models on new versions of Android OS.
