Weekly poll: Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, are the worth it?

Here are all the other gadgets that Google announced last night

Here are all the other gadgets that Google announced last night

Interestingly, the iPhone 8 has the same price tag as the Google Pixel 2, yet there's no wireless charging support on the latter.

DxOMark, a company that claims to be independent source for image quality benchmarks for phones and cameras, has just tested the Google Pixel 2's camera and says it has the highest rated camera tested thus far. Does that mean Googles new phones are excellent and already top sellers? If you press down on the earbud, it invokes the Google Assistant, the Pixel's answer to Siri. Watch the video below for that demo. The Pixel 2 comes with a 5-inch 1080p AMOLED display while the Pixel 2 XL boasts a 6-inch Quad HD P-OLED display. Now Google has offered something of an explanation, putting it down - at least in part - to the "bezel-less future" of phones. "The Pixel 2's photo performance is really impressive at 99, and just one point short of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which scored an unbelievable 100 in our photo category", wrote the reputed website in its review. Both support Always On Display, but the larger screen has better color accuracy – 100% DCI-P3 vs. 95%.

"With all of the improvements built up over the past year, the Assistant can help you get more done and give you more time to focus on what matters", Huffman wrote in a blog post. Google Lens will recognize those bits of information and will automatically store them for you. You basically get free, unlimited original-quality storage for photos and videos taken with Pixel until January 15, 2021, and high-quality storage for all later uploads.

Google has added all the latest features in its high-end Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. You get a USB-C to 3.5mm adapter in the box, but if you lose it, a new one will cost you $20 (double what Apples adapters cost). Instead, they're embracing the bezels and have managed to squeeze a stereo speaker setup on the front of the phone. That said, most users will probably be content with it. Not only did they announce the next iteration of their Google Pixel lineup of phones, they also announced a wealth of other technology that consumers will be getting their hands on in the coming year. We will also keep you updated on when and how will the new features be distributed to the other Chromebooks.

The Galaxy S8 has a great camera, too - but in our own vote, the Pixel XL came out ahead in categories such as landscape shots, HDR shooting, and low-light shots with flash enabled.

And I'm not just talking a handful of languages like Spanish or Italian, the Pixel Buds, according to Engadget, have "the power to translate between 40 languages".
