Google Pixel 2 review (updated): Pixel 2 still great, but a Pixel 3 could be out in a few months.


The Pixel 2's superb camera makes it worth a look. Just be aware that an upgrade will likely come later this year.

Google's Pixel 2 has a superb camera with OIS and excellent low-light shooting. It's water-resistant and Google Lens calls up a trove of information to help you explore your surroundings.

The phone's battery doesn't keep pace with the Pixel's competitors and its Portrait Mode isn't as smooth on dual-camera phones. Its design feels dated and it doesn't have wireless charging or a headphone jack.

Buy the Pixel 2 for one of the best cameras on any Android phone and fast Google updates, but be aware that an upgrade is likely coming in a few months.

Google Pixel 2 smartphone review - high quality device with smart features


No one makes a purer Android smartphone than the company behind Android. That would be Google and its latest offerings – the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 – naturally come with the very latest version of the operating system. Google has packed in the features...

Pure Android experience, slick design, bright sharp screens, excellent camera, solid battery life, fast charging, smart features.

Expensive, no microSD card.

The new Pixel 2 smartphones certainly hold their own in the top tier. They are high quality, well-designed and brimming with excellent features. If you’re an Android user who wants a high-quality device then the Google Pixel should definitely be near...

Google Pixel 2 64 GB Review

Great phone.


Long battery life, easy to use, intuitive, and heeds your every command. Navigation is a breeze. The only issue I've experienced with this is a one-off battery snafu- it read 55% but suddenly dropped to 29% in under an hour. Other than this anomaly, it...

Was good, then it bricked!


The wife's pixel 2 was running reasonably well for its first year, then it stopped working entirely with a slot unbootable error. Would not respond to recovery or factory reset mode and Google have not fixed this problem which has been reported by...

Great Camera Good Size


I picked this phone because it is the smaller size compared to the XL and I really miss the Iphone 5s phone size. This phone is bigger than that but similar to Iphone 6 in size--which fits my hands perfectly. The camera on this phone is stunning!!! The...

Good phone, but battery a major let down


I bought the Google Pixel 2XL, and despite being really impressed with the features, I have been super disappointed. Major issues with the phone not charging, the phone turning off when the charger has been plugged in, the charger that came with the...

If it's still not lagging, give it few months


I made the switch in hope that it google, can't be wrong. But boi was I wrong. I understand that its camera is simply mind-freaking and takes great photos but there are other things the phone do which Google forgot. Let's start with how badly it lags....

Great phone


This would have to be the fastest phone I have ever owned. It takes 8 seconds to reboot and login, excellent camera much better than my wife's Apple iPhone 7. The photos are very clear and sharp. The latest Android OS 9 upgrade has improved performance...
