Just in the past month we’ve seen two amazing smartphones hit the market: The Pixel 2 from Google and the iPhone 10 from Apple. It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of the original Pixel phone and if/when I do decide to upgrade, it’s going to be the Pixel 2 and here are six reasons why you should consider doing the same.

LET'S GET SOCIAL
I like the pixel, don’t get me wrong, but I feel like google is targeting good videos about their phone to my recommended because I googled my carrier a few hours ago lol. (I never get phone videos anymore)
I bought a Pixel 2 XL and I can't even describe how happy I am. best phone ever
I've done so much research and compared a lot of mobile phones together before buying it.
Iphone X, Note 8, OnePlus 5t, Essential Phone, Razer Phone and Pixel 2 XL. and I can say that it is the best.
I've had many of the iPhones in the past. I currently have the 7 as well as the pixel 2 xl. I tested the iPhone x side by side with my pixel 2 xl and I can attest that the pixel 2 xl has far better performance and features. Screen res, cameras, fingerprint scanner, processing speed... All far better with the pixel 2 xl. Even the stability of the software and apps meets or exceeds apple.
Ive had iPhones before, I personally think they're a crock of shit and a waste of money. I also don't wanna be a sheep, everyone has iPhones these days. I like android because you can really make your phone your own. Changing themes (stock and download able), changing the transitions on your home screens. An actual choice of clocks on home screen and lock screen. Choosing the type of security on the home screen (pattern, pin, password, swipe). The list goes on. You get more for your money with android. Android all the way.
Many things are wrong with this.
1) There is no reason to have a finger print scanner if you have an easier to use facial recognition system that is fast and secure enough.
2) Face ID technology is new to Android phones as it is a different technology. Face ID is more secure than past facial recognition divorced.
3) When will Face ID login be a huge inconvenience?
4) The reason they didn't put a finger print scanner on the phone is that it is less secure then Face ID, rendering the added security of Face ID useless.
5) The reason that Face ID failed at the keynote was because of security. People backstage had been scanning their faces causing the phone to disable Face ID to prevent people gaining unauthorized access to your phone.
6) Apple does not claim that if you are serious into taking good photos you need to use an iPhone. They recommend DSLRs for serious photographers.
7) Apple does tell you that the quick-charge capabilities do require items sold separately from the box.
I'm not saying the Pixel 2 is a bad phone or even that it is worse than the iPhone X, I'm just saying that I feel this video had lots of points of misinformation that should be stated before people make a decision about what to spend their money on. I understand that this video is titled "6 Reasons to go Pixel 2 over the iPhone X", but I still feel the video should be truthful and not as biased.
I've loved Pixel before I loved an iPhone, and I got your point, but the design of the pixel 2 it's just not good, I loved the one on pixel 1, but I hate this one, and I just cant take a phone that I dont like the design... I love pixel's technology, and the fact that it the most compatible with google, but the outside, for me, it's just terrible...
You cant use that clip of the iPhone X not opening. If you look at the phone it says you need to enter the password to use the FaceID. And people were messing with the phones before hand and the phone locked bc they kept trying to open it. I don’t like iPhone, I have the XL 2, just get your facts straight
SSGSS Vegito I myself have the smaller Google Pixel 2, and I can tell you that its definitely a great phone. The camera is incredible and the storage is unlimited. There is also a Google assistant feature, that, in my opinion is way smarter than siri. It honestly depends on if you like the iPhone system design or the Android system design. What phone do you own now? If you have an iPhone currently, it will take some getting used to the different software that the Google Pixel 2 operates on. But overall, they are both good phones and it just comes down to your personal preference.
Maria Wilkes true so would you recommend this phone over the iPhone 7 Plus. They both cost about the same and are what I’m interested in buying. And I’m referring to the small Google Pixel 2 not the xl with 64 Gb for $649
The only thing I disagree with is the faceID thing you’ve mentioned. I will say more often than not it does get hung up by not recognizing your face, however all you have to do is “go to backup” which was the passcode entry shown in the video and faceID tries again and normally gets mine right every second time. It is frustrating to have to try to unlock it twice I will agree.
The pixel 2 is a great phone though I feel like google is moving ahead of Apple in the smartphone wars. Apple just has better marketing tactics and that’s why they’re so successful.
Face unlock is was better than touch unlock and much more natural... it seems stupid until you try it.
Unlimited cloud storage is fine. However it will destroy your data plan, won’t work in remote areas and the cloud is easy to hack. Your relying on someone else to keep your photos safe.
The camera on the pixel is fine but recording is worse with a lower frame rate for 1080p and 4K video.
Just my thoughts...
Sad to say, I feel, apple was an extension of Steve Jobs, and now that he's gone, its hard to justify getting an iphone, the X just proves that the company is no longer going for quality and is rather just profiteering from its loyal base. I'm getting the pixel 2!
+DJ Xono You mean the part where I am talking about MKBHD and how everybody needs to watch the video he did? Why would I not use his footage to help promote his video? I'm guessing you hate his videos?
