INTRODUCTION

Google Pixel 2
Google Pixel 2

The way Google has revolutionized the smartphone market is praiseworthy. Not only they have been able to manufacture some pretty successful flagship smartphones; they seem to have captured a loyal customer base too. Not long ago, they had launched their Pixel and Pixel XL smartphone. They are not all that old at present, yet their successors are already out in the market and will available for purchase since November 1. Let's talk about the latest phone from Google Inc. in 2017 - the Google Pixel 2

DESIGN AND DISPLAY

Google Pixel 2 Design and Display
Google Pixel 2 Design & Build

The Google Pixel 2 is more rectangular than its predecessor. The phone measures 145.7 x 69.7 x 7.8 mm and weighs 143 grams. The phone is pretty lightweight and will be very easy to hold and maneuver around. The back panel has a similar design as Google Pixel. The only difference being the glass 'shade' for the antenna to work has been moved up a little and the fingerprint sensor is not covered be it. The front panel has the display and the selfie camera along with proximity sensor and a speaker for calls. The right side panel houses the power and volume control buttons, while the left side panel is blank, just like the top edge. The bottom edge, however has the dual stereo loud-speaker grills and the USB-C port. The absence of a 3.5 mm jack will be compensated by ability to connect headphones using the USB-C connector.

The display of the Pixel 2 is a 127mm Cinematic style Full HD AMOLED Display with a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. The display has a pixel density of 441ppi with an aspect ratio of 16:9. The screen is protected by a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5. With a superb contrast ratio of 100000:1, the Pixel 2 will be a phone with a display like no other. The display would produce Full 24-bits depth or 16.77 million colors.

PERFORMANCE AND CONFIGURATION

The phone is powered by the world famous Qualcomm flagship chipset. i.e. the Snapdragon 835 Octa Core SoC (4 x 2.35Ghz + 4 x 1.9Ghz, A53 Cortex 64Bit Octa-Core). Performance is not an issue at all here as seen in HTC U11, Samsung Galaxy S8, OnePlus 5 etc. We can be rest assured that the phone's performance with heavy processing needs will be met with very easily. For graphic production and top-level gaming experience, the phone has the Adreno 540 GPU, that too is very well known to run very smoothly when playing graphics heavy games. Couple that with 4GB of RAM. Although there are phones that boast of 6GB and 8GB of RAM, for now 4GB is more than enough to get the work done beautifully without any hassles and lags.

The phone will run on Android v8.0 Nougat and will be among the first phones to be installed with the latest Android OS out-of-the-box. The best part of it will be that it will be running the pure sstock Android v8.0 in it; which means that the phone will never have any issues with unnecessary softwares and all the native featuers will be accessible to the users - the phone will surely be a boon for developers. The Pixel 2 comes in 2 memory variants - 64GB storage and 128 GB storage.

CAMERA AND MULTIMEDIA

As opposed to the trend and our expectations the Pixel 2 was launched with a single camera module on the rear as well as the frnt panel. The rear camera comes with dual-pixel autofocus technology. The camera has a 12.2 MP CMOS sensor, with a f/1.8 aperture lens. The caemra is said to vastly improved compared to last year. In simple words, the rear camera is even better than what we saw last year. Not being a dual-camera, it is to be seen how well it fares compared to the other flagships that have been launched with dual-cameras. The front camera has a 8MP sensor with a f/2.4 lens. The camera will be specially optimised for selfies and high quality video calls. The

For video recording the phone's camera is capable of capturing 4K videos at 30fps, 1080p FHD @ 30fps, 60fps, 120fps and 720p @ 30fps, 60fps, 240fps. THe front camera is capable of taking 1080p videos @ 30fps, 720p@30fps and 480p@30fps. This is a litte strange as the front camera should be able to record better videos at better frame rates.

As far as other mulitmedia options are concerned, the phone is capable of playback of all popular audio and video formats. Since there is no 3.5 mm jack, you'll have to connect your headphones using the USB-C to 3.5 mm dongle. Google is apparatly following Apple's footsteps in this section.

BATTERY AND CONNECTIVITY

The Pixel 2 comes with a paltry 2700 mAh Li-ion non-removable battery. This much battery backup is not enough to last through the day, given that the phone's users would like to keep it active all day. Though it is doubtful that the phone would last the day, with light usage, it should make it through. It is advisable that you carry the fast-charger that comes with the phone. The phone supports Qualcomm Quick Charge technology and would charge the phone to full capacity within minutes.

The phone will support all 4G LTE/VoLTE networks, 3G HSPA/UMTS bands and all 2G EDGE/GPRS bands. The phone will support one eSIM/Nano SIM. The phone supports wifi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ ac dual-band (2.5GHz - 5GHz), Bluetooth 5.0 + LE, GPS w/A-GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo for location, NFC for connectivity. For wired connectivity we have a USB-C port that will serve as the port for connecting OTG, other phones for transferring your data such as contacts, songs, files etc., and for connectng the headphones.

The phone's array of sensors includes a Active Edge™, a Proximity / Ambient light sensor, Accelerometer / Gyrometer, Magnetometer, fingerprint sensor (rear-mounted), a barometer, a hall effect sensor, Android Sensor Hub and an advanced x-axis haptics for sharper/defined response.
