GET Google Pixel 2 XL at the best price in Kenya from Starmac Technologies.
There is an interesting and not entirely unexpected trend of iPhone users jumping for Android instead. Basically the majority of them are just sick of pin to the nose for pretty much the same device year after year. There’s not exactly a cheap option when it comes to iOS which therefore makes it all the more interesting than the Android phone. They’re most interested in is the Google Pixel 2 XL.
Unlike with iOS it’s perfectly possible to get more affordable Androids that still pack strong performance and some rather brilliant camera tech. Google’s pixel design has basically been the mobile equivalent of Marmite ever since the launch with some absolute slates in the combination glass and metal finish.
Google Pixel 2 XL runs a Vanilla version of Android, unburdened with any clunky overlays or anything like that. That means instant access to Android updates timely, security patches and of course full access to the Android P beta. The app switcher and the notifications tabs have been tweaked and touched up. Note there are a number of toggles that come with the Google Pixel 2 XL. The device can be unlocked using a fingerprint scanner or face recognition.
One of the best features of the Google Pixel 2 XL is its support for Google’s daydream platform which is on Virtual Reality effort. It is absolutely packed with great games and experiences making it a solid rival for likes of Samsung’s gear VR for instance. The stereo speakers sound pretty damn good for a mobile although you will need a Dongle II thing to connect wired headphones.
Where the Google Pixel 2 XL really does excel is the smart camera tech. It is still one of the best smartphone snipers out there and you might not get the triple-n setup for the while. Complete with its optical zoom or the 90 wide-angle secondary lens like of that LG G7 it catches gorgeous photos and videos. Google’s portrait mode uses software smarts to great effect producing snaps that easily stand up to its multi lens rivals.
Battery life is still brilliant too among the best androids right now. One can get close two days use per charge without being frugal and that fast charge support means that the battery refills in just over an hour. It does not feature the latest Snapdragon 805 chipset something that you’ll find in the OnePlus 6 or Xperia X2 and a few other Android flagships.
Despite these strengths the Google Pixel 2 XL is still a tricky recommendation as we roll on towards the end of 2018 especially considering the rivals such as the OnePlus 6 which offer much of the same strengths with fewer of the weaknesses for less cost. There isn’t one standout feature in here that you won’t find at another rival and generally for less of a price.
