In this Google conference, although many new products have been exposed that evening, still make people see a lot of surprises, as we are most concerned about the Pixel 2 and 2 XL, in addition to taking pictures, there are many interesting features of Google Pixel 2 and 2 XL, let’ see what’s the difference between the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.
Whether it’s about a different manufacturer or Google’s own orientation, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have a noticeable difference in appearance. Pixel 2 hide the big forehead and chin under the cover of black panel. Compared to last year, Pixel 2 XL really enhance the surface, the 6-inch OLED full-screen design almost makes up for most of the user last year’s dissatisfaction. At the same time, the presence of full screen makes the 6-inch gadget could be held in one hand. In addition, there is the IP67 waterproof function, the sound quality of a single speaker has evolved into the excellent double speaker.
But this year is 2017, which competitor doesn’t have a dazzling industrial design? Regardless of beauty and ugliness, iPhone X, S8, Note8 and LG V30 all have full screen, in other words, the full screen is not a selling point, Pixel 2 and iPhone 8 is even behind the times. And the full screen of 2 XL is not optimistic.
Pixel adopts 18: 9 2K full screen, but also curved screen. Its screen can be comparable to the Samsung note 8. Both 2 and 2 XL have a wide color gamut, Pixel 2 is 95% DCI-P3 and Pixel 2 XL is 100% DCI-P3. Pixel 2 adopts AMOLED, and Pixel 2 XL is LG’s POLED.
Pixel does not take the lead in many respects, but the camera is really good. The single-camera portrait mode is sharp and fast, different from Lens Blur mode and defeats dual camera by the algorithm. The algorithm is not perfect for portrait mode, but do not forget that machine learning and post-upgrade provide further room for imaging.
Of course, the algorithm in addition to detecting the depth of field but also responsible for fill light in low light and so on. The algorithm also coordinates OIS and EIS. In a word: One of the best camera phones at the moment, none of the best camera phones DxO has ever evaluated.
Battery capacity has changed, the capacity of Pixel 2 is 2700mAh while Pixel 2 XL is 3250mAh, the five-inch machine in Google’s heart basically fell to the bottom of the valley. Fortunately, there are Snapdragon 835 and Android Oreo’s power management, Pixel 2’s battery life should not be too poor.
