Google Pixel 2 Has The Best Camera In A Smartphone : DXOmark

It's no surprise then that the company's two latest flagship phones have people wondering what is similar and what is different about the two devices. They look better, are waterproof now, match up to current standards with the near bezel-less screen (in the case of the Pixel 2 XL) and drop the headphone jack (so much for Google's snarky jab at Apple at last year's Pixel reveal). The phone costs $849 for the 64GB version and $949 for the 128GB model.

In terms of capacity, the Google Pixel 2 XL leads the battery pack with 3,520 mAh, with the Galaxy S8+ so close behind the difference is negligible.

DxOMark is highly impressed with the setup of the Pixel 2's camera, and rightly so.

The Pixel duo comes with Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB/128GB internal storage and 12.2MP (rear) / 8MP (front) cameras. It can run circles around anything Qualcomm can now produce.

This offer is also available for the Pixel 2 XL for those who place an order between 4 October and 14 November, but for £10 more per month (£57.99 per month).


According to DxOMark test, iPhone 8 Plus has the best camera which can capture excellent photographs. However the Community Manager for Pixel/Nexus, Orrin Hancock disclosed on the community that their smartphone Pixel 2 does come with a headphone jack it is just that it has been moved to the USB-C port. It's a very attractive storage offering. While the device is still to get released, Google itself has published a gallery of photos and videos captured by the Pixel 2. The main selling point of the devices was the capabilities of the Google Assistant, which can now be accessed with Active Edge by simply squeezing the phone. The smaller Pixel is now the top victor on DxOMark.

The phones are priced at $649 and $849 to start, each $50 cheaper than the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, respectively. Due to this feature, the smartphone can capture, clear videos with stabilization. Would you pick the Pixel 2 XL over the smaller Pixel 2, once they are available?

Pixel Buds, synched to freshly-introduced second-generation Pixel smartphones, promised real-time translations of conversations involving any of 40 languages.

The Google Pixel 2 seems to be launching with a lot of exclusive features that other devices running stock Android seemingly won't receive (at least not soon). In Galaxy Note 8 one of the dual cameras is f/2.4 telephoto and other is f/1.7 telephoto. For example, If a user takes picture of a dog it will tell you what kind of dog it is, isn't it special? Whereas in iPhone 8 Plus one of the cameras is a f/2.8 aperture and other is f/1.8 aperture.
