Google Pixel 2 XL

Design and Display

This behemoth shows off an almost ‘bezel-less’ design as rivals such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X. The design of the Google Pixel 2 XL is not excessively flashy. This makes it a great choice for professionals. It features both glass and aluminium.

The Google Pixel 2 XL smartphone is a full inch bigger than the Pixel 2 at 6 inches in diagonal size. Its display uses P-OLED technology from LG and promises better image quality. The waterproof device boasts a very high resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels. That translates into about 538 ppi pixel density for very sharp images.


You get the same highly rated 12.2MP primary camera of the smaller Pixel 2 on the Google Pixel 2 XL. It is just a single sensor, but it proved enough for DxOMark to rate these phones as the best for shot taking and video recording.

You get practically all camera features you can expect on a high-end phone, including phase and laser autofocus and OIS. This beast looks to serve up superb selfies as well with its 8MP front camera.

Hardware and Software

You can look forward to same solid performance that the Pixel 2 promises on this one as well. The Google Pixel 2 XL also features an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor zipping away at 2.35 GHz. Throw in 4GB RAM and an Adreno 540 graphics solution and you have a phone that will run practically all games with relative ease.

You get either 64GB or 128GB internal storage that is not expandable. Out of the box, the Google Pixel 2 XL packs latest Android 8.0 Oreo OS. Buyers can expect to enjoy upgrades until 2020!

Other Features

To go with its size, the Google Pixel 2 XL carries a bigger 3,520mAh battery, compared to its predecessor, unlike its smaller brother. Google Pixel 2 XL also features a reversible USB Type-C port that you can use for charging and audio. The 7.9mm device offers you practically all connectivity options you can expect at this price range, including NFC and speedy dual-band Wi-Fi.

Pricing and Availability

The price of the Google Pixel 2 XL starts at $849 for the 64GB model and $949 for the 128GB model in the United States. The Google Pixel 2 XL is not officially available in Nigeria, but you could be able to buy it at Jumia Nigeria later in the year.
