Google’s second generation in-house smartphones are now available, and we’re here to give you the verdict. Packing the latest in specs, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are every bit as impressive as you’d expect. While the smaller Pixel 2’s design looks a bit dated, the Samsung AMOLED panel on it will likely make you forget about that design. Google’s Pixel 2 XL features a far more modern looking design in 2017, and both phones even feature front-facing stereo speakers. And how about that camera? Google’s HDR+ functionality has long reigned supreme in the world of smartphone processing, and Google is taking that to new heights with a new dual-pixel camera sensor and its first in-house designed system-on-a-chip, the Pixel Visual Core. Is this worth buying over Samsung, LG or Huawei’s best? Find out in our video, and be sure to check out the written review below for all the info we couldn’t cram into this video.

  1. Probably the best Pixel 2 XL review I have watched over past few weeks. Well done! The screen problems are not deal breakers to me and I cant get over it because of that camera, front speakers, and battery life!

  2. Watching this channel for the first time and this is awesome channel love from Pakistan…. Pixel 2 xl is great phone with stunning camera both front and back… Front face speakers and pure stock android experience…

  3. You said extremely good battery life.
    Does this count for both of them? How much SoT can i expect from the smaller pixel 2? Atleast 4-5 hours with normal usage?

  4. im not really worried about the blue tint or the so called graininess as you just showed in the video (barely any as far as i can see). The thing that worries me is the uniformity. some people are saying that the hue considerably changes from top to bottom. Do you see this with your XL?

  5. Great review. I'll be sticking with my OG pixel XL though. Applied 2 apks to give me those live wallpapers and that new pixel launcher UI ?

  6. Thank god a reviewer actually points out how exaggerated the crying in other reviews about the 2 XL's screen is. Thanks for this. I already bought the 2 XL and have had it a few days now and I have zero complaints. Loving everything about this phone!
