Design and Display

Built by HTC, the Google Pixel 2 retains the attractive aluminium and glass design of its predecessor. Google Pixel 2 also boasts textured feel that makes it fit well into the hand with minimal worry about it slipping off. With an IP67 rating, here is a device that reduces concerns over damage by water and dust.

This is a 5-incher featuring an AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection 5. You can sure expect sharp images with a Full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels to show. The display boasts 95% DCI-P3 coverage.

Camera

Google is apparently not a party to the latest craze about dual lens rear camera setup. You get a 12.2MP sensor with an f/1.8 aperture on the back of the Google Pixel 2. This completes with optical image optimisation (OIS), phase detection and laser autofocus, and dual-LED flash. Now, these are solid specs. DxOMark rates it the best smartphone right now for photography and video capturing with an all-time high score of 98!

The selfie shooter is no slacker either with a resolution of 8 megapixels. It shoots Full HD videos as well.

Hardware and Software

The Google Pixel 2 should deliver zippy, enjoyable performance. It houses an octa-core Snapdragon 835 chipset with Kryo CPUs under the hood. This pairs with an Adreno 540 GPU and respectable 4 GB of RAM.

Onboard storage is ample at 64 GB or 128 GB, depending on the model you buy. However, there is no microSD card slot. You get good value in software as Google Pixel 2 ships with latest Android 8.0 Oreo OS. In addition, you will enjoy upgrades until Android R release.

Other Features

Somehow, the Google Pixel 2 comes with just a 2,700mAh battery. But this is not entirely bad when you consider the bigger iPhone X packs comparable juicer. It enjoys fast charging with a USB Type-C cable you get in the package.

Google Pixel 2 offers you front firing stereo speakers, something that is uncommon on smartphones. Its connectivity options include speedy dual-band Wi-Fi with Wi-Fi Direct and DLNA, Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC. Google Pixel 2 packs a fingerprint sensor on its rear.

Pricing and Availability

The price of the Google Pixel 2 starts at $649 for the 64GB model and $749 for the 128GB model in the United States. The Google Pixel 2 is not officially available in Nigeria, but you can now buy the smartphone from Jumia Nigeria starting 348,200 Naira.
