Of course Google's new Pixel 2 phones have even more annoying problems

One year ago   |   By TheBoyGeniusReport

Google's Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones have received mostly positive reviews, but these devices are far from perfect. The more time passes the more glaring issues come to light, and it really looks like you should think twice about buying either handset.
We've already talked about the screen issues that affect the Pixel 2 XL (including the overall OLED experience and burn-in problems ), and the phone's bending trick .
New reports reveal one other annoying screen issue for the Pixel 2 XL, and a Pixel 2 “ticking” sound that can't be explained. On top of that, it looks like even devices that...

Google Lens is quietly arriving on the Pixel and Pixel XL

One year ago   |   By TechRadar

Google Lens is arguably one of the highlights of the camera on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL , but it's already seemingly rolling out for the original Pixel and Pixel XL. The feature is built into Google Photos and allows the phone to identify what's in your pictures, which could be handy for example if you want to know the name of a landmark or a type of flower. Reddit users have reported finding the feature on their original Pixel handsets and apparently this happened without any software update, so it's worth checking the app if you're rocking a Pixel or Pixel XL. Not everyone is seeing...

Google negligently sent this user a Pixel 2 unit that failed quality control

One year ago   |   By The Next Web

Google is not having a particularly good week. Following a litany of complaints aimed at the poor quality of its Pixel 2 display, one disappointed customer is claiming the handset the Mountain View titan shipped out to him purportedly failed quality control at the factory.

One year ago   |   By Know your mobile

Paul Briden 24/10/2017 - 8:59am
Google's Pixel 2 pre-orders are now on their way to customers!

Google may be working on 3 new Pixel phones in 2018, a super premium model in tow

One year ago   |   By Phone Arena

Google may be working on three new Pixel phones for 2018 and the codenames for all of them have just surfaced. Google refers to its Pixel phones under codenames that bear the names of fish, and the next Pixels are referred to as "crosshatch", "albacore", and "blueline", according to Droid-Life, a publication that has well-connected sources that have been right in the past.
Of course, this is very, very early information, but it's also extremely interesting: the idea of having three new Google Pixel phones in 2018 is that there will be one ...
