When Google launched Pixel 2 on 4th October 2017, it became apparent that a new force has entered the market. Its features have rattled even the top smartphones in the UK and other top markets globally. Many people who had planned to buy other top pieces especially Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone 8 are now pausing to take a look at the latest developments from Google, especially on artificial intelligence. Here are five unique features that you can only get in Pixel 2 XL.
Unlimited storage for photos and videos
Since the onset of smartphones about 10 years ago, every person has become a photographer. From selfies with visitors at work to holiday portraits, people want to capture and immortalize everything using images. But space is always a limiting factor. Now, Google Pixel 2 XL provides a lifetime solution. The phone comes with an unlimited backup of photos and even videos at full resolution. This is great. Even your full resolution videos will be backed up on the cloud for free. This unlimited storage has been cited to be a game changer in the market because more people are now looking at functionalities as opposed to the appearance only.
If you thought that unlimited storage was all, hold on! Google has been in the smartphone world for long and appreciates the difficulty that people encounter in managing their videos and images. Pixel 2 XL comes with a new feature called Smart Storage that will manage all the videos and photos. With the feature, the phone senses when the storage is running out and automatically backs up some of the videos and images. This means that the phone memory will always be enough even when filming 4K videos.
Inbuilt Google Assistant
Google Pixel 2 XL is the first smartphone that has an embedded assistant. You can call the assistant by long-pressing the home button. Note that the Google Assistant provides more than an interface for voice search. It also contextualizes the info from previous interactions. Allo, the virtual assistant continues to learn about you so that it can easily tell what you want at any moment. Now, you can even use Allo to add events on the calendar, prepare grocery list, run vehicle diagnostics, and even control the ambient lighting.
Fulltime customer support
One area that many phone companies have failed is on customer support. Apart from the mobile service provider, does your handset company provide customer support? Google has worked very hard to address this issue. The Pixel 2 XL comes with a 24/7 customer support. The phone has a fulltime support from the Google team that makes problem resolution easy and fast. For example, you can activate screen sharing so that the engineers at Google can see your screen and diagnose issues faster. You can only get this on Pixel 2.
The final take
Google Pixel 2 XL is the latest smartphone to enter the market. The smartphone runs on the latest Android Oreo which makes it faster and better than Samsung Galaxy S8 that rides on the older version. If you are looking for a good phone, well, this is one great piece that guarantees high value for your investment.
