These Photos were shot with the Google Pixel 2

It's true there are a good number of nifty features on the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL to add on the top-notch hardware specs the phones come with. In September, it was announced that the iPhone 8 has the best smartphone camera in the world.

The update is rolling out on the Google Play Store, so we suggest you wait for a while. You are also getting free unlimited cloud storage. The Pixel 2 XL, on the other hand, is a bit pricey with its $849 price-tag.

Rishi Chandra, vice president of product management for home products, explained how in the past year 100 million new questions have been answered by the Google Assistant, using featured snippets from search, songs from Spotify and videos from YouTube. All this is is Google implementing more, optional safety features. Considering Google's new direction, we are expecting to see more exclusive services and features for the Google hardware. For instance, pointing it at a dog will provide you details on what kind of dog it is. The pair has decent display screens and premium builds, with the larger Pixel 2 XL going after the Galaxy S8, Note 8, LG V30 and iPhone X as far as the screen is concerned.

On October 4th, Google presented its strategy for the future. You don't have to pick up your phone or unlock it to see notifications.

The standard Pixel 2 gets a similar design to a year ago with large bezels at the top and bottom of the phone. It works pretty much like Shazam, except that you'll not have to open an app.
