Recombu

High-end handsets that boasted premium specs

from Recombu
Google’s Pixel phones are among the very few Android handsets out there to offer a clean, unfettered version of the OS, packed inside some premium hardware. You might not get much in the way of frills, yet the Pixel is a well-constructed smartphone that delivers dependable performance and solid battery life, as well as one of the better cameras of 2017...

This time, it’s the smaller Pixel that deserves all the plaudits

from Alphr
The advantages the Pixel 2 have are two-fold for my money: the camera and the company. The former is easy to explain: this is by far the best camera phone on the market, taking phenomenal shots in tricky conditions... Full review
Expert Reviews

Top-notch performance, best smartphone camera

from Expert Reviews
Once again, Google is leading the Android charge. It might be sticking with same uninspired design as last year's – and lacks the bezel-less display of its supersized sibling – but a much-needed processor upgrade and welcome camera improvements has seen the Pixel 2 rocket to the top of our smartphone hierarchy...

TechRadar

The best camera on a smartphone

from TechRadar
The Pixel 2 clues us in on why Google called its phone series Pixel: it was building the best camera on a phone. This second-generation effort fulfills that promise with best-in-class photos, dual front-facing speakers and water-resistance. You have to be okay that it looks dated and there’s no headphone jack... Full review

Android camera magic

from SlashGear
If your online life is on Google’s servers, and you prize camera talents above all else, the Pixel 2 is the best combination of that. Just be sure you can live without wireless charging and a headphone jack in the process... Full review
IT Pro

Google’s smartest smartphone yet, but don’t expect mind-blowing design

from IT Pro
In a vacuum the Pixel 2 is a great Android smartphone, with a vibrant display, and a solid construction with innovative squeezable edges. However, in the face of stiff competition from Samsung, LG and OnePlus, the Pixel 2 looks outdated, with only its excellent camera and lovely Android experience making it noteworthy... Full review
Tech Advisor

Excels in software and photography

from Tech Advisor
The Pixel 2 is a boring phone until you turn it on. The uninspiring hardware melts away to present you with a bleeding edge vision of the Android future, with machine learning fully integrated. It’s not quite there yet, but this is where we are heading... Full review
Cnet

Superb camera makes up for no jack

from Cnet
Buy the Pixel 2 for the best camera on any Android phone and fast Google updates, but skip it if you can't live without a headphone jack or a standout design... Full review
Engadget

Google's best phones get even better

from Engadget
Rather than build two identical Pixels this year, Google decided to make its new small smartphone a little more conservative. Make no mistake: the Pixel 2 is still an incredibly fast phone, and a clean build of Android 8.0 Oreo combined with Google's intelligent features make the device incredibly capable... Full review
Tom's Guide

The world's smartest phones

from Tom's Guide
The Pixel 2 offers great cameras, AI smarts and long battery life for a fairly affordable price, but those big bezels almost spoil the party... Full review

Darn, there are no reviews yet for this phone.
