Pixel 2 Cons
The design of the phone looks a bit outdated, the bazels on the phone are quite large keeping in mind the 2017 trends, and since they made a huge deal of the headphone jack on the pixel 1 launch last year, they should not have omitted it on the pixel2, you guessed it right the pixel 2 doesn’t have a headphone jack in it (that’s sad)
And the price point of the pixel2 is really not justified, it feels as if google does not want common day to day users to buy there phone, they just want the enthauist, bloggers or technophiles to buy this phone.
The google pixel 2 and pixel 2 Xl are really good phones and all the aspects of the phones scream of originality and speed with the camera being the best in the mobile phone industry, the only thing holding back this phone is the price, if you are a person who wants the best irrespective of the price, than Go for it no questions asked.
