About Google Pixel 2 Xl

Pixel 2 XL is an Android smartphone designed and developed by LG and marketed by Google. They were announced at a Google event on October 4, 2017, as successors of the Pixel XL. It was launched on October 19, 2017 and is the second set of smartphones in the Google Pixel hardware product line.

The performance of Google Pixel 2 XL is excellent and it is difficult to find an Android phone capable of delivering it with such ease. The IP67 rating makes it resistant to both water and dust. Even though we were not too adventurous, the Pixel 2 XL worked well when it came into contact with some splashing water. The active edge works seamlessly and responds as soon as you call it. A word about the fingerprint sensor too: it is one of the fastest sensors you will encounter and it allows instant recognition of fingerprints.

A large-screen device like the Pixel 2 XL must handle multimedia playback and the smartphone does not disappoint at all. The audio output is excellent - two speakers at work - and even with Bluetooth headphones, it worked very well. You can play 4K video content and the Pixel 2 XL is very powerful.
