The Google Pixel 2 XL is the upsized version of the Pixel 2 - a six-inch display compared to five inches. But what other big things does the Pixel 2 XL bring us?
Optimum Android Performance
Reviews from industry events launching the Pixel 2 XL rave about the new Android Oreo, the new Operating System which takes smartphone performance to a remarkable new level. According to some, this new Pixel smartphone is how Android should operate in its purest form.
Speed...Lots Of Speed
The Snapdragon chipset, combined with 4 GB of RAM, combine to make the Pixel 2 XL a very fast phone, noticeably speedier than many other smartphones occupying the higher end of the market.
Always On Is Always Handy
A smaller feature, but a most welcome one, is the Always On feature, which means you can see the time and other notifications without having to tap the screen.
Crystal Clear P-OLED Display
One of the big advantages of upsizing to the Pixel 2 XL is the enhanced resolution of the P-OLED display. Its 2,880 x 1,440 resolution equals a crystal-clear display, something to keep in mind if things like virtual reality gaming apps are on your wish list.
Not Dual-Lens, But Dual Pixel
The Pixel camera is being lauded as one of the best, if not THE best, on the smartphone market. While the cameras are not dual-lens, technological features like dual-pixel for a stunning depth effect, means that the rave reviews for these cameras are justified.
Keeping Dust and Water Out
Protecting all the grand features in the upsized Pixel 2 XL is improved dust and water resistance.
A newer model Google Pixel 3 XL 128GB was released in August 2018.
