Hence, it is safe to say, the newly launched flagship device from Google now flaunts the best smartphone camera. It even scored more than the Note 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, both of them scored 94 on DxOMark.

The new Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL feature updated cameras that now pack in OIS and the same 12MP sensor, though Google has made plenty of amendments to the software, and while this is all well and good, the proof, as they say, is always in the pudding. Impressively, it manages this despite having "only" a single-camera design for its main camera. Pixel 2 phones already have different exceptional features as compared to other rivals including iPhone X and Samsung's Galaxy S8. And the power it has when paired with the Pixel 2 is quite something as well.

As far as front camera's go, the iPhone 8 Plus beats the Pixel 2 XL in the rear camera department. But the last Pixel just took slightly better images on a consistent basis across the spectrum. As Apple and Samsung are competitors, both the companies are trying to acquire significant consumer volume which can help them in the smartphone race.

Google also posted a video sample of the phone. Here you could use your past location device history to see which of the bakeries you often visit.

They also come with a very cool "universal translator" feature that seems very useful, but didn't work 100% right in my hands-on.

If you want to own one on contract you'll have to go to EE or Carphone Warehouse as the Pixel is exclusive to these suppliers.

For most people, 64 GB of built-in storage is plenty, but Google offers the option to double that.

In order to satisfy the high-end smartphone market, you need more than just a phone with high-end hardware specs. While you purchase audio accessories for your Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL remember that because the USB-C port doesn't support analog audio.

All of the new devices unveiled by the company yesterday were designed with artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities meant to make them "radically helpful", according to Google senior vice president Rick Osterloh. The phone costs $849 for the 64GB version and $949 for the 128GB model.

The Pixel 2 XL is a little less expensive, with its 64 GB model going for $1,159 and the Pixel 2 XL 128GB going for $1,289. Critics remain adamant that Google could have found the space for a 3.5mm audio jack on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, especially since the original Pixel devices featured both openings.
