Google Pixel 2 XL Review

Score: 9.84/10

Google Pixel 2 XL is a very high-end phone launched some years ago, including a 6-inches display, a high-tech Octa-Core processor speeding at 2.35 gigahertz, a 12.2 MP back camera and an 8 megapixels front side camera.

This phone ships with an extremely powerful 2.35 gigahertz Octa-Core CPU, bundled in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 MSM8998 chip and a huge 4 GB of RAM memory. This phone counts with a great 128 GB internal memory and while it doesn't count with an external SD slot, it is still enough to install hundreds of applications without worrying about running out of space at all.

Google is offering this cellphone in two color options, black and white. This cellphone construction uses Aluminum and Glass . This phone feels much lighter than what one would think about a device of this size. This device has a wonderful design, with a thickness of just 0.31". Although the Google Pixel 2 XL is only 6.22" long and 3.02" wide, it's still able to fit a a 6" display.

This phone features two cameras, a 12.2 megapixels back camera and an 8 MP front camera. Its back camera has an aperture of 1.8 so it can shoot awesome pictures even in low lighting environments. This phone can also shoot 4K 3840x2160 videos at 30 fps, and 1280x720 HD slow-motion videos at 240 fps (8 times slower than regular videos).

Google packed this phone with a incredible 6" screen, and a resolution of 1440 x 2880 , which makes everything look absolutely perfect.

The Google Pixel 2 XL offers wi-fi connectivity (which it can provide to other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G ultra fast data connection and also HSPA+ connectivity (which is a slower 4G technology) and fast 3G connectivity, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone works with a Nano SIM card for GSM networks.

This cellphone also comes with plenty of great characteristics like Fingerprint Reader, NFC, Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS (Global Positioning System), and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The Google Pixel 2 XL has a 3520 mAh long lasting Li - Ion non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this cellphone with an incredibly long battery duration. An issue to take into consideration is that the Google Pixel 2 XL's battery is non-replaceable so you can't change it when it begins to lose capacity, whereas with such a huge battery size you will probably replace this phone before it happens.

Google offers the Google Pixel 2 XL for $ 949, which is high for a device this level. No matter whether you want a phone for work, want it for gaming, love photography or are looking for a phone to majorly use social networks, you will probably be very pleased with it.
