  • Pixel 2 headphone jack: Google explains controversial decision to ditch 3.5mm port

Last week, following a seemingly endless stream of leaks and reports, Google officially announced the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones, alongside a wide range of new and updated hardware. And speaking of Pixel exclusive features, the Assistant on Pixels will also now get access to Google Lens, allowing it to effectively "see" and provide answers and information based on what you "show" it through the camera. The company revealed an astonishing futuristic feature that translates your speech into another language that emanates from your phone.

This offer is also available for the Pixel 2 XL for those who place an order between 4 October and 14 November, but for £10 more per month (£57.99 per month). The phone's software then combines the two images into a single photo that is superior to what just one lens can produce.

Interestingly, the iPhone 8 has the same price tag as the Google Pixel 2, yet there's no wireless charging support on the latter.

If you're in the United Kingdom, the best place - in my humble opinion - to preorder the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL is Carphone Warehouse. Google wants to show the unbelievable video stabilization of Pixel 2.

Take a look at the images yourself. When you hold the iPhone X in your hand, you'll feel its sleek design, due the glass back and the shine Apple adds to their devices.

DxOMark scores are being increasingly used to compare camera qualities in smartphones between various brands.

Taking a jab at Apple, a promo video of the phone said, "3.5mm headphone jack satisfyingly not new".

Also, you do not get any earphones with your Pixel 2. This feels like the final nail in the coffin for both landline and mobile network providers - slowly eradicating the need for the traditional phone contract.

The pricing of the Google Pixel 2 starts at Rs. 61,000 according to the Google Store.

Much like any premium headphone, Google ensures consumers that it sounds good playing music. So you'll see in Pixel 2 Xl a smoothly running operating system that works just as it should, with no errors or glitches, exactly how an Android should work right now.

On the front, both the Pixel 2 XL and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 have an 8MP sensor.

Talking about the camera samples, we are really impressed with the quality of both the still images and videos.
