The Pixel 2 price in India starts at Rs. 61,000 which is slightly below the price of iPhone 8 base variant which comes at Rs. 64,000.

Meanwhile, the iPhone X has the highest quality display of the bunch - but it's also the most expensive smartphone out of the three.

Furthermore, the screen is protected by a layer of Corning's latest Gorilla Glass 5.

I found Google Lens slightly more reliable than a similar Samsung feature, Bixby Vision. We kinda get used to excellence when it comes to Google's software, so bugs like this actually surprise us.

Google confirmed to CNBC that it didn't only use Qualcomms Snapdragon 365 chip, but in fact one of Intel's chips to bring the best smartphone to the market.

Both phones are powered by Android 8.0 Oreo and come with an always-on display that lets users see notifications on the screen at a glance without having to touch the power button. Following the trend, Google has also ditched the 3.5mm audio-jack and the audio is routed through a headphone adaptor. The Mountain View company, soon after the global launch, had revealed that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be also going on sale from over 1,000 offline stores in the country. It might seem obvious, but that's something Apple can no longer do thanks to the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X options.

Some users may also be put off by the new iPhone's Face ID facial recognition software that replaces the touchscreen entry system.

For the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL it's very easy to explain: the Pixel 2 looks just like the original Pixel, while the Pixel 2 looks just like the LG G6. The top row of the homescreen now provides useful information about weather, traffic, your calendar "and of course, Google Assistant is still the star of the show", says Wired.

There's barely a fraction of a handful of Android devices running 8.0 Oreo so far. Google has a great option for both people who prefer phones that fit in pockets better and people who want a big, immersive display. However, the Pixel 2 ended up coming with the 835 chipset. It's been used to beat world champion Go players (which was previously thought to be impossible), and over the last couple of years Google has slowly leveraged it to add a number of features to mobile and web services. The Android 8.1 developer preview has been officially announced by Google today. Because the Pixel 2 XL has much smaller bezels and a 76 percent screen-to-body ratio, the difference in sizes isn't quite as dramatic as you might think.
