Insanely fast and truly smart. Tight integration with Google Assistant makes everything convenient. AMAZING camera.
Screen can sometimes appear bluish.
The Google Pixel 2 is a seriously amazing phone. I was an iPhone user for 5 years before switching. What got me to convert was all the smart features packed into this phone.
- The Google Assistant integration makes managing your life so much easier. Simply squeeze the sides of the phone and it activates the assistant. The voice recognition is good and I find myself using the voice control features all the time.
- The camera is unreal. The default quality of the camera is impressive enough, but the portrait mode creates some seriously beautiful pictures. My wife has an expensive DSLR camera and often she'll want to use my phone instead for shots.
- The raw Android experience on the Pixel 2 shows Android at its best. It strips away everything you don't need and serves up the best features that you do need. This makes for a blazing fast phone that just does what you need it to do.
- The Google Lens feature is one of my favorites. Take a picture of anything and Google will do a search to pull up any relevant information it can find. The results are often amazing. I once took a picture of the nutrition facts on a can of hot cocoa and just from that it was able to pull up what brand of cocoa it was, give me all the details about the brand (including a link to their site), and told me where to buy it.
The Google Pixel 2 is truly the smartest phone I've ever had. Transferring from an iPhone was a piece of cake and took about a half an hour.
