Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Google Pixel 2

Google Pixel 2's size

The Google Pixel 2 is 2.7inches (69.3mm) wide, 5.7inches (145.3mm) tall, and 0.31inches (7.8mm) thick. At this size, a man with large hands would be able to operate it comfortably with one hand, but it may feel a bit large for a woman with small hands. In the case of the Google Pixel 2, it weighs about 5.0352oz (143g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

Both the size and weight of the Google Pixel 2 make it easy to hold in your hand and are unlikely to cause any trouble when you use it normally.

The CPU performance of Google Pixel 2

The Google Pixel 2 has an extremely high processing power of 2.45GHz×8(OctaCore), so it can smoothly run any app out there with ease. Its performance ranks among the top-class of all smartphones released to date. It's well suited to running even the most demanding of 3D games with ease.

The Google Pixel 2 has 4GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The Google Pixel 2 is an exceptional high-end smartphone. You will be fully content with its performance in all areas. It is a must-have for you if operation performance is important for you.

Google Pixel 2's storage capacity

The Google Pixel 2 has 64GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

The Google Pixel 2 is not compatible with SD cards, so make sure you check that there's enough storage for your needs.

Google Pixel 2's screen

The Google Pixel 2 has a 5 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The screen of the Google Pixel 2 is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The camera function of Google Pixel 2

The main camera of the Google Pixel 2 has a capacity of 12.2 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The Google Pixel 2 comes with a 8 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Google Pixel 2

The Google Pixel 2 has a relatively large battery with 2700mAh. The Google Pixel 2 has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.
