What's changed?

Aeshetically, the Pixel 2 hasn't changed much, yet it has a few key changes that set it apart from its predecessor. These include the removal of the headphone jack and dual front facing speakers. This means that in order to listen to music privately, you'll need a set of bluetooth headphones.

Let's see what else has changed:

Power

The Pixel 2 ships with the new Snapdragon 835 processor, which makes it one of the most powerful Android smartphones on the market. It also has an impressive 4GB of RAM - double that of the iPhone 8. This means that you'll have a really responsive handset, regardless of how many apps you've got open and what you're using the phone for.

Cameras

The rear camera, one of the features of the original Pixel phone, is a single lens with 12-Megapixels and supported by Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS), while the forward facing camera is 8-MP.

The iPhone 8 uses a dual lens to create a blurred background effect for portrait photography, however the Pixel 2 offers a similar feature with its single lens. This means you can apply the same effect on your front or rear shooter.

Always-on display

The Pixel 2 has an always-on display, which means that you can see the date and time as well as notifications such as emails, text messages or reminders, without needing to touch the handset. There's also a neat feature which enables you to see the song that you're listening to on the phone. So if you're listening to Britney or Best of Eurovision, make sure you keep it away from any prying eyes on your commute.
