Albeit its traditional design, the Google Pixel 2 is an incredibly fast phone as it is built on Android 8.0 Oreo plus a combination of Google’s intelligent features. There is plenty to offer on this smartphone and read on to learn more about this incredible device.
The Google Pixel 2 features a smart camera that will adjust accordingly to the object you point your camera with. So, no matter if its text, numbers or landmarks, it will snap up amazing photos. Along with this feature, Google has made sure that the Google Pixel 2 has a much-improved camera compared to its predecessor. From its low-light performance to sharper imaging, the camera has upgraded in every way. The smart camera also has a Portrait Mode effect similar to the Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus but with use of only one lens. This feature works well on both the rear camera and the front-facing camera. Another added feature of the camera is the Motion Photo support that can be viewed and shared across various platforms. Thus, users are able to look back on the memories that they’ve created.
The Now Playing feature is made for every music-lover out there. Ever heard a song you like and are curious to find out about the artist? Well, with the Now Playing feature on the Google Pixel 2, all you have to do is look at your display. This feature works by listening for music and then identifying the song, without conveying any information via Google’s servers. To enable this feature, simply go to Settings > Security & location > Lock screen preferences > Now Playing. After that, tap On to permit the feature.
Squeeze to Launch Google Assistant
Regardless if your phone is locked or on another app, simply squeeze the bottom half of the Google Pixel 2 and the Google Assistant will be immediately launched. Customize how soft or hard you have to squeeze, disable squeeze for assistant, allow when the screen is off as well as enable or disable the ability to squeeze the phone to silence an incoming call.
With the AI-assisted smarts which is built into the Google Pixel 2, the always-on display allows notifications and the time to be displayed, as the name suggests, all the time. To enable the ambient display, go to Settings > Select Display > Advanced > Ambient Display > Toggle on or off on the Always on options.
Excellent Charging Speed
Within the Pixel 2 is the 2,700mAh non-removable battery, which is sufficient for Google to squeeze into such a slim device. The phone comes with a USB-C fast charger which can charge from empty to 60% in half-an-hours’ time. You can also opt for the battery saver mode in the notification shade. By looking through the battery section in the setting, it will also tell you which are the apps that are draining the phone battery. Also, it allows users to action it immediately instead of just closing the app.
