    AI-focused experience, best smartphone camera... ever, unlimited, full-res photo and video storage, works with Project Fi, and more


    Price could be better, a bit more water resistance would be nice

    This is the crown jewel of Android phones at the moment. If you want to stick with iOS, go ahead—you know where to go. This is pure, unadulterated Android.

    Ian Smith has used this product for one day.
  • Pros: 

    Beautiful design, good camera, blah, blah... I believe Samsung Note 8 or Galaxy 8+ beats it tho, but that is not the point.


    PRIVACY. You pay with your $$ and with your data. Please don't forget that!

    From Investopedia:

    "Google services do not cost the user anything. Instead, Google lures in users and collects their data, and then sells access to eager buyers across the planet. Every marketing firm in the world wants the kind of information and repeat usage Google enjoys. "

    Apple: I am not saying Apple is an NGO saving the world as they desperately try to depicture themselves on their product keynotes.

    They sit on the biggest, or one of the biggest, cash reserves in the world (more that what many countries have) because we pay far too much for their products.

    But at least their business model is not your data, or is it?

    guille garcia has never used this product.

No headphone jack, after they made fun of Apple for it last Pixel

@livejamie Now they make fun of no need for 2 lenses when they can do it all with just 1. DXO test images on Pixel 2's Portrait mode (they even copied Apple's naming lol) compared to iPhone 8+ just show what a hack their software portrait mode is compared to hardware based 3D depth mapping. Hacks show mistakes. I don't want photoshop fakerey in my photos that's hit and miss. Pixel 2 vs iPhone 8+

@livejamie @garyfung didn't think I'd say this, but that's a pretty huge difference!

@livejamie @alirtariq I'm losing faith in DXO for any objectivity. They released their (bought) review just before Pixel 2's unveil just so Google can tout its score. Talk about independent journalism? Who does this: unveil new products, and tout a review that's out just before said unveil? And this shows how big a difference like this just get glossed over in DXO's review:

@livejamie @bluemonk482 No it's not. Even if it is, it's perspective difference and not the point.

@valdecarpentrie So much for Google making fun of Apple's "courage" last year. Copycats.

I. AM. IN. LOVE. The Black/White Pixel 2 XL will probably be my next phone. 😍

@kevinbryantlou ordered the all black version. Considered the b/w but I think any discoloration after use would drive me nuts.

iPhone 8 by Google

@rueter Well, it's actually by HTC (Pixel 2) and LG (Pixel 2 XL) but Google doesn't want you to know that.

@hayden_evans I stand corrected. iPhone 8 by Google but not by Google.

Hayden Evans@hayden_evans
@rueter Maybe it's "iPhone 8 outsourced by Google"

@rueter @hayden_evans Google has acquired the HTC hardware team... so it actually is by Google now. 😉

"One simple plan. Pay $20 per month for unlimited talk and text, and $10 per GB of data — and you never pay for data you don’t use. Even when you travel abroad, you’ll still pay the same $10 per GB in over 135 countries." That's pretty sweet.

> "Even when you travel abroad, you’ll still pay the same $10 per GB" Shows how expensive this plan really is that they can simply cover the world-wide roaming costs from the same monthly payment. :D /european
