The smartphones battle for the best handset is high these days, and Google is not afraid to throw in a fight. They have released the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL and sadly they’re not much of a contention to the other brands’ flagships. Unique but less than attractive design, no headphone jack nor card slots, and a price tag that is too high for the specs making the Pixel 2 & 2 XL ratings to be lower than expected. Google must step it up if they want to be in the game.
