The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have reached a point where they're being compared to the latest iPhones. Yes! How does the regular Pixel 2 stack up to the other high profile release this year, the Apple iPhone 8? In fact, many third-party manufacturers also banked that this product naming scheme would continue, as evidenced by the number of early cases we've received labelled for the "iPhone 7s" and "iPhone 7s Plus".
On paper, the new Pixel 2 is in the same tier as other flagship phones out in the market today, and then some. The two have similar screen sizes (and bezels), and they are in a similar price range.
Google's decision arrives as somewhat of a surprise given the fact that the tech giant mocked its Silicon Valley counterpart just previous year for removing the 3.5mm audio jack.
The Pixelbook has been confirmed in a set of leaked images, and looks to have a flip around screen display for full tablet conversion.
So needless to say, after eight years of this trend, it was reasonable to expect that we'd see Apple's two new standard iPhone models given the "iPhone 7s" designation, even despite rumours that a higher-end premium iPhone was also on the horizon. It has new dial-pixel sensors for the main 12.2-megapixel camera, and also has optical image stabilization in addition to the usual electronic stabilizer. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus both come with LCDs and not OLEDs.
These phones will provide users with adapters to connect your existing 3.5mm headphone, so there is nothing to worry about. The former has an aperture of f/1.7, 2x optical zoom and offers OIS in both cameras, while iPhone X has OIS, 2x optical zoom and an aperture of f/1.8.
The Google Pixel 2 has achieved a score of 99 for photography and 96 for videography.
Google has made some changes in the interface in Pixel 2 XL. Now that's impressive. The Pixel 2 XL really could boast the best camera on the market.
As far as front cameras go, the Galaxy Note 8 beats the iPhone 8 Plus with its 8MP front camera (the iPhone 8 Plus' is 7MP). The search engine giant has put all its expertise in machine learning and artificial intelligence to prove that you don't need a dual camera to capture incredible photos and videos.
Apple is looking into multiple reports of batteries swelling within new iPhone 8 Plus smartphones, which apparently broke them open as a result.
