The Google Pixel 2 is a 4G LTE smartphone with a 5-inch FHD AMOLED Always-On display with 1920x1080 resolution and 441ppi. From within, the phone runs on a 2.35GHz Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB of RAM. There is an internal storage option of either 64GB or 128GB. On the back of the phone is a 12.2-megapixel sensor with 4K video recording, an f/1.8 aperture, optical + electronic image stabilization, and dual pixel phase detection. A secondary 8-megapixel camera can be found in front of the device and can record 1080p videos. The device also includes a 2700mAh battery, Pixel Imprint sensor, IP67 water and dust resistance, and Daydream-ready. Upon release, the phone runs Android 8.0.0 Oreo OS and is available in three colors: Kinda Blue, Just Black, and Clearly White.
I was really excited about purchasing the Google Pixel 2. I figured if a company like Google was getting into the market then it would have to be an impressive device. Unfortunately, the phone fell far short of the reviews I have read. Are these bot reviews? Anyway, the Camera is quite good, but the screen resolution on the phone itself isn't. The biggest and most irritating problem I had with the phone was the charging however. The phone will only charge reliably with the charging power adapter that came with the phone. If I try to plug the USB into any other power adapter it may or may not charge and usually extremely slowly or not at all. It will show charging, but over the entire night will only charge 10%. Bottom line, if a phone can't charge reliably it's really quite useless. It seems a lot of companies are too busy trying to make money of charging accessories than just working to build a reliable device. Too bad google. I returned my pixel 2 and went back to the Samsung. Maybe in the future you will find a manufacturer who can get it right. By the way, Verizon pushes this phone heavily (for obvious reasons).
