Google Pixel 2 XL review

 

Blazing-fast speed and a brilliant camera, all in a futuristic, edge-to-edge design. The Pixel 2 XL is the best Android phone around.

Gorgeous design ; Blazing fast performance ; Brilliantly reliable camera ; Excellent software experience, fast updates ; IP67 water-resistant

No headphone jack ; Display has blue tint when viewed from sides

Blazing-fast speed, a brilliant camera, an uncluttered and beautiful Android experience, all in a futuristic, edge-to-edge design. A headphone jack would have been icing on the cake, but this is still the Android cake to own.

Pixel 2 and 2 XL review: Google's best phones get even better

 

Long story short, the XL is thebigger, more attractive version of the Pixel 2. Just about everything I loved about Google's new small phone applies here too, but the XL has a few distinct advantages -- its battery life is much better, and Android Oreo...

Excellent performance ; Truly impressive camera ; It's finally water resistant ; Android 8.0 is powerful and accessible ; eSIM works well with Project Fi

No microSD slot or headphone jack ; Its design feels dated ; Unlimited full-res photo storage only lasts three years ; Middling battery life

Chris is Engadget's senior mobile editor and moonlights as a professional moment ruiner. His early years were spent taking apart Sega consoles and writing awful fan fiction. That passion for electronics and words would eventually lead him to covering...

Google Pixel 2 review: plainly great

 

Incredible cameras, practical design, and polarizing screens. Google's latest phones are the best way to get a true Android experience

Incredible camera ; Great speakers ; Best Android experience

Screen shows image retention immediately ; Colors are muted, even compared to other sRGB screens ; No headphone jack

The Pixel 2 isn't the nice dining room table with the fancy silverware. It's the kitchen counter where you actually eat. It's not as impressive, but it's much more comfortable. That's what makes the design of this year's Google Phones great. They're...

Google Pixel 2 XL

 

The Pixel 2 XL packs more Google into its body than any other phone on the market.

Excellent battery life. Terrific low-light camera performance. Elegant Google software. Great build.

No headphone jack or microSD card slot. Lacks Band 71 for expanded T-Mobile coverage.

Buying a Pixel 2 XL may be a little out of your comfort zone, because it isn't sold directly by most carriers. But it's worth it. Verizon sells the 64GB Pixel 2 XL directly for $849.99 or $35.41 per month. But that model has bloatware and a locked...

Pixel 2 XL review: A.I. magic on a 6-inch display

 

The Pixel 2 XL is a no-brainer upgrade—unless you already own the original Pixel XL. Here's your comprehensive look at Pixel 2 XL's marquee features, and how they rate.

Pure, glorious, pristine Android Oreo. ; Amazing camera experience. ; First phone to receive Google Lens. ; Beautiful new display and physical design. ; Packed with A.I.-driven surprise and delight features.

Some key features aren't exclusive. ; Not a monumental upgrade over original Pixel XL. ; No headphone jack, no manual camera controls, meh speakers.

Is Google Lens a photo feature, a surprise-and-delight trick, or a productivity tool? It’s actually all three. It’s a fantastic demonstration of Google’s machine-learning chops, and is coming to both original Pixel phones as well as this year’s models.

Google Pixel 2 XL Smartphone Review

 

No reference. The Pixel 2 XL is visually a high-end smartphone from 2017 and has a POLED display in the 2:1 format. Visually, the relation to the LG V30 cannot be denied, but it has taken a different path in terms of the camera. Furthermore, there is...

fast SoC ; modern Android with long update cycle ; excellent camera ; good speakers ; fast LTE ; aptX HD ; free cloud storage for pictures and videos ; IP67

display could be brighter ; very limited viewing angle stability ; no dual-SIM ; no microSD slot ; PWM ; no more MIMO-WLAN

Google’s focus and the main selling point of its latest smartphones is the combination of hardware, software, and artificial intelligence that these two constitute. The Google Pixel 2 XL is certainly a very good smartphone, but there is still quite a...

Google Pixel XL2 smartphone specs

 

Google Pixel XL 2 Android smartphone : Last year in September, Google launched two smartphones, the Pixel and Pixel XL. These were Google's first smartphones. The former Nexus line-up was introduced in combination with other manufacturers, including...

For mobile photography, the Google XL2 is equipped with a 12 megapixel main camera and a 7 megapixel front camera. Both are capable of recording 4K videos. Probably the camera application will not differ much from the current Pixel smartphones. These...

Google Pixel 2 XL vs LG V30

 

This year, we finally got the "phones of the future" — thin-bezeled, all-screen devices. Two such phones are the Google Pixel 2 XL, and the LG V30. To say they are heavy-hitters is an understatement.

Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL Review

 

With different manufacturers helping Google create this hardware, and fundamentally different screens on these two options, does this year's Pixel lineup lose some of its unity? How do Google-designed phones compare to the rest of 2017's very, very...

Great-feeling hardware, unique look ; Powerful, easy-to-use camera ; Solid performance ; Stereo speakers ; Much-appreciated arrival of waterproofing

Come back, headphone jack! ; Pricing a little steep on 2 XL ; 18:9 screen has been done better on other phones ; Voice-call clicks on smaller Pixel 2
