The Note 8's camera also snaps great pictures, however, they aren't as clear in the majority of cases as the ones taken with the Google Pixel 2 XL. There are people who want the standard headphone jack.

Welcome to the Sunday Giveaway, the place where we giveaway a new Android phone each and every Sunday!

The Google Pixel 2 XL comes with 25% more RAM than the iPhone 8 Plus at 4GB versus 3GB. They ship in November.

The two smartphones aren't too different from each other, like the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL, with the display size and battery capacity being the biggest differences. And while Google may be late to the wireless-audio party, the search giant has come up with something that outmaneuvers the AirPods in some important, and very cool, ways.

"The Google Pixel 2 not only takes the DxOMark Mobile scoring crown with a stunning Overall score of 98, but its video performance improves by 5 points over the original Pixel, putting it at 96 and at the top of our video ranking". Pixel owners will have to make do with what they're given. To have even remotely quality bluetooth buds, you have to fork over a large sum of many, and even then, many are not worth it. Every silver lining has a cloud, I guess.

What could be truly fascinating is if Google eventually joins the party and adds a dual-camera system to a future Pixel phone, in addition to its AI processing.

The really nifty part is in the controls. Or were you left unimpressed by Googles new darlings? Swiping left and right, meanwhile, changes the song if you're playing music.

Now this is a good deal here with the Google Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL. If you let go of the button, Assistant stops listening. Tell us what you think about them in a comment.


While the Galaxy S8 is substantially heavier than the base model Pixel 2, Google's phablet tips the scales slightly higher than Samsung's. This is because the Pixel Buds can do translation in real-time.

For example, the $249 Google Clips, set to arrive soon in the US, "is a totally new way to capture genuine, spontaneous moments - all powered by machine learning and AI", Osterloh noted.

Pixel Buds were priced at US$159 (RM675) and will be available in the United States beginning in November.

The Pixel Buds is designed for everyday use.

Last, but definitely not least, the Google Pixel Buds can act as a universal translator, "Star Trek" style.

The Pixel 2 XL does offer the advantage of Daydream View VR support, with a newer version of the headset launching this month with a wider field of vision. Google says it'll work with 40 languages. I like how Google is doing this. And it worked! Mostly. Maybe don't try this in a crowded bar. While you purchase audio accessories for your Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL remember that because the USB-C port doesn't support analog audio.

There are still some questions: Are Pixel Buds as easy to set up as Apple's AirPods?
