Google Pixel 2

Today we are going to take a look at one of the best phones of 2017. It's the Google Pixel 2.

Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Two phones of different screen sizes, screen-to-body ratios and aspect ratios, but otherwise nearly identical internal components.

First up, the Pixel 2 was made by HTC and the Pixel 2 XL by LG — but they're that similar. But when you dig a little deeper, the lineages are clear: the Pixel 2's AMOLED display is clearly better than the washed-out, problematic LG-made pOLED display on the Pixel 2 XL.

Both phones have Snapdragon 835s, 4GB of RAM and between 64GB and 128GB storage standard, along with single rear 12MP cameras — this year with OIS. They're waterproof but don't have headphone jacks (boo!). There'so no wireless charging, but the sides can be squeezed to activate Google Assistant. And though it ships with Android 8.0, not 8.1, there's a lot new here — including an embedded eSIM to connect to Project Fi even without a SIM card.
