The secondary monochrome lens helps you a take great black & white photos. But why anyone wants to do so and want a specific camera for that. 8 megapixels (f/2.2 aperture) front-facing camera is also very average don’t accept too much from it.

Pixel 2 is the new brother from its originally launched pixel in 2016. It is a Google’s flagship device. As being a flagship from Google you have a lot of expectation from it, and it is absolutely delivering it as compared to the previous generation phones. Phone rocks Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor and Adreno 540 for high graphics performance. Loaded with 4 GB LPDDRX Ram for buttering smooth multi multi-tasking.

The phone comes with 64/128 GB storage capacity which you can’t expand. You’ll get the best Android experience on this phone. As a Google’s phone, it is also the first phone to get the latest updates. Now let’s talk about camera performance. Previously google phones had an image of very poor cameras. But from the launch of the pixel, Google is back on camera department game as well. Last year pixel phone becomes the first mobile phone camera to get highest 90 marks on DxO mark ratings. And again Google breaks this record by pixel 2 by getting 98 marks.

Pixel 2 comes with 5 inch screen size and pixel 2 xl bigger brother comes with 6 inch screen size with 1440 x 2880 pixels 18:9 ratio and 538 ppi density (76.4% screen-to-body ratio).
