"With Pixel 2 you get free, unlimited original-quality storage for photos and videos uploaded through the end of 2020, and free, unlimited high-quality storage for photos uploaded afterwards". However, this appears to only be true for the next three years. What we mean is this - Apple outed the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus with the very same form factor it has been using for the past 3 years. What's more, the photographer/s who took the photos clearly has a good handle on composition, color palettes, mood, and lighting; just pointing in a direction and pressing the capture button is unlikely to provide the same level of results.

While the company might be moving to a bezel-less future as smartphones get more screen real estate, the smaller phone shares the same design language as its predecessors.

It's solid logic, except that the Pixel 2 - which is set for launch in six countries this month, although a UAE release date is still unknown - readily beats its competitors despite having just the single lens. DxOMark agreed, giving the phone's camera a record-breaking score of 98. The camera sensor on both the devices is the same 12.2-megapixel sensor with f/1.8 aperture while the front camera is an 8-megapixel shooter.

The Pixel Buds are Google's answer to Apple's AirPods, wireless headphones but Google's version are technically "Neckbuds" with the string connecting the two buds. However, a combination of software, hardware, and artificial intelligence (AI) together will create truly ground-breaking products. After that, your photos will get high-quality storage from Google.

Did you pre-order a Pixel 2?

Here's a selection of sample photos shot in a number of environments and lighting situations with various camera settings. The Google employees also stated that most Indians purchase premium smartphones only after experiencing it. Of course, we can likely expect an appearance by the new Pixelbook, potentially alongside older Google devices like Chromecast.

The Home Max, however, is geared for quality audio and again, it uses AI to deliver it.

Sonos introduced a similar feature called TruePlay a few years ago, but it required manual interaction from the user. This feels like the final nail in the coffin for both landline and mobile network providers - slowly eradicating the need for the traditional phone contract.
