Google Pixel 2 XL vs Pixel 2 vs Apple iPhone X

Posted October 09, 2017

The Pixel 2 phones crank up the speed with the use of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, the same processor that lives inside the Samsung Galaxy S8.

The US-based tech MNC, which announced two new editions of the Pixel earlier in the week, rolled out Pixel Ambient Services, an app which provides features based on local context for Pixel devices, reports The Verge. The camera sure offers a immaculate pictures, but how Google made it possible is a lesser known fact. For all those who are interested in knowing more about what the Pixel 2 and the company's new VR headset bring to the table, check out our guide on what's new with Google Pixel 2 and Google Daydream View.

A demo floor packed with journalists isn't the best place to test out a hands-free camera that's trained to take shots of familiar faces, but the images a Google rep showed me looked pretty sharp. "For example, when you go to bed at night, with a simple "good night" your Assistant can silence your phone, turn off the lights, set your alarm and more". If you are a passenger playing music or connecting your phone to the vehicle, then it may still determine you as the driver rather than the passenger. Google is doing it with just one camera instead of two.

If Pixel 2 XL is compared with iPhone X it is obvious that Apple's latest device will empty your pockets bit more.

Google executives said it has become more hard to find new hardware breakthroughs like bigger and better screens but they believe significant improvements will come from artificial intelligence software that is developing at a faster clip than physical components. The video includes a number of interesting interviews with the Pixel 2 team. "This tiny camera seamlessly sends clips to your phone, and even edits and curates them for you".

The Pixel 2 will cost you Rs. 61,000 / Rs. 70,000 for 64GB/128GB repectively and the Pixel 2 XL will cost you Rs. 73,000 / Rs. 82,000 for 64GB/128GB respectively.

And much like the Echo Dot, the Home Mini has a US$50 price tag. This works even when your phone is in a case.

Pixel smartphones have an app that finds information with its camera. The screenshot of the menu option says that this DND feature, when enabled, is automatically turned on when the phone senses it is in a moving vehicle.

Google Pixel 2 XL runs on Android 8 Oreo. With Apple iOS 11, DND is a part of all devices that are supported by the new iOS. Apple iPhone 8 Plus also features high-dynamic-range scenes due to AutoHDR feature.
