Everyone knows about the two powerhouses when it comes to smartphones. Samsung and Apple. However, Google has presented itself as a legit competitor in the last few years, coming out with its own smartphone, the Google Pixel. They needed some help making the phone though, so they sought help from some reliable android phone companies like LG and HTC.
On the 19th of this month, the Pixel 2 came out without that much hype. This upgraded version of the Pixel comes in two different sizes. The standard version is 5 inches and the XL version is 6 inches. A big upgrade from the first generation Pixel is that the Pixel 2 is now waterproof. They will both have a 12.2 megapixel rear camera and a 8 megapixel front facing camera. The Pixel is available in three colors; Very Silver, Quite Black, and Really Blue. The price for the standard phone is $649 and $849 for the XL.
The only problem with the Pixel is that it doesn’t have a headphone jack like the iphone 7 and beyond. Some good features the Pixel has is the “Always On feature” which is like the Galaxy’s, and probably the most unique is the “squeeze feature.” When the sides of teh phone are squeezed, the google assistant is activated.
Evan Clarke, a freshman and an iPhone user for two years says, “The best part about having an iPhone is Siri, Facetime, imessage, and that a lot more of my friends have iPhones”. Lauren Stuart, a current senior and Android user for about a year says,“The best part about having an android is having actual buttons instead of a single home button; it also has a cleaner layout and a better price.”
So, if you like android, or you are looking for an alternative to the main phone brands, the Google Pixel 2 will be a perfect phone for you!
