Google Pixel 2 and 2 XL

Google Pixel 2 and 2 XL

Date Written: 3/22/2018

The Google Pixel 2 and 2 XL were released on October 19th, 2017. These are top of the line phones and the second generation of Google's Pixel phone line. These are high end phones and compete directly with iPhones and the Galaxy S phone series. Since these phones are from Google they come with the newest version of the Android operating system, and will be in line to be one of the first to receive new updates as they become available. This is a big advantage over many other Android devices.

The top feature of the Pixel 2 and 2 XL is the camera. Just like last year's model, these phones take arguably the best pictures of any phones available. This is especially true in low light areas. The design of the phone doesn't feel as new and updated as others, but it is made to be durable and water-resistant. There is no headphone jack and unlike the Galaxy S series, it does not include an expandable storage slot.
Bottom line is the Pixel phone series is a viable option for inspectors looking to use a high quality Android phone. They're a little cheaper than the S9 series and iPhones, and will give you a great phone experience.
