This Smartphone comes up with the 6 inches screen which is bigger than the previous ones. The display was always the biggest flaw of Google’s Smartphone and Pixel 2XL is showing the same story. Google Pixel 2 XL consists of the screen made from P-OLED that is low-quality displays. The colors are not uniform which means that it displays another color instead of the original. Whites are frequently tinged with dim or blue shading. This is the greatest downside of Google’s most recent device. Moreover, the viewing angles are not up to the mark.

The fingerprint scanner is still on the rear side and is faster to lock than any other devices.
Google Pixel 2 XL is designed in such a way to give the strong gripping experience to the users. It has a metallic body with Matte Premium half breed covering which nearly reduces the odds of unintentional fall. 3D gorilla glass 5 on the front is giving the security to the screen.

A 12.2-megapixel rear camera with ½.6 inch sensor size and f/1.8 aperture is similar to previous versions. It also has a front facing camera of 8 megapixels. The rear camera may struggle with white balance and user may face lacking colors in the pictures. Although it is best performing phone in terms of HDR as it works great when you leave your phone with HDR on.

You will get non-expandable memory storage of 64/128 GB within the Smartphone. Google Pixel 2 XL has 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor that was the best Soc at the time of its release.
Google has launched its Smartphone with the latest Android 8 Oreo.
