Weekly poll: Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, are the worth it?

10 October, 2017, 00:13 | Author: Pamela Mathis

It's a shift in user behaviour because the button eliminates the need to say "Ok Google", (which out in public can be a little embarrassing). That said, most people probably wrap their phones in cases before even taking them home nowadays. Finally, Google also included a few videos in the gallery, showcasing the phone's ability to shoot slow-mo video and demonstrating the optical image stabilization that will keep your videos smooth, even if you're bouncing around while filming.

Google rolled out two new Pixel smartphones - the Pixel 2 and the Pixel XL. It is also important to note that all of Samsung's 2017 flagship family have narrowed bezels and somehow the Korean giant managed to incorporate an IP68 water-resistance rating as well as a headphone jack. So far testing in the event has showed us that they are both giving a great user experience.

On paper, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 seems to be the clear victor of the camera contest.

The pricing of the Google Pixel 2 starts at Rs. 61,000 according to the Google Store. The Pixel 2 can intelligently identify and separate backgrounds and foregrounds based on what the company's algorithms have gleaned from processing that huge trove of data.

World Cup qualifying wrap 07 October 2017
Laurent Blanc has challenged the France squad to aim for a place in the Russia World Cup and go ahead to win it. Cristiano Ronaldo finally opened the scoring in the 63rd minute before André Silva secured the win in the 86th.


"The Pixel 2 still comes with a headphone jack but we have moved to USB-C, a standard that is becoming commonplace in the best phones and laptops of today".

Google spent a significant portion of its October 4th event discussing the camera of the Pixel 2, hyping it up as the best smartphone camera to date. Both smartphones' cameras handle low-light condition admirably. Most of the mainstream coverage of the event would have been about the new Pixel 2 phone.

Pixel 2 will be priced at Rs 61,000 for 64GB variant and Rs 70,000 for 128GB variant. But when the stabilization is on on the right side, the video looks quite ideal. With the two phones, there's no doubt that Google is after the two leaders in the industry - Samsung and Apple. The Google Pixel 2 is slated to launch in India on November 1 whereas the Pixel 2 XLwill be available from November 15. Achieving such image clarity and quality with only one sensor when everyone else sports dual cameras is indeed admirable. As Google's onstage demonstration illustrated, there appeared to be virtually zero lag time during the translation, though we'll have to see how well that performance holds up in the real world with wonky WiFi connections, background noise and crosstalk. It's safe to assume that it will be among the best cameras available in a smartphone.
