Google Pixel 2 Review

dpreview conclusion

The Google Pixel 2 combines hardware with powerful software to produce incredibly detailed and vibrant still images in both daylight and low light. Class-leading dual pixel AF is fast and accurate even in low light, and 4K/30p is both beautiful and also smooth thanks to optical + electronic stabilization. The camera's background blurring mode is among the best. And unlimited free photo storage via Google Photo is just the icing on the cake. We wish it offered wireless charging, a more accurate color display and a telephoto rear camera. But still you'd be hard put to find a smartphone in 2018 that takes prettier pictures.

Good for

General shooting, portraits, high quality casual video, street photography, social photography

Not so good for

Sports or action, extremely low light shooting, those who still appreciate a traditional camera form factor
