Pixel 2 XL or Galaxy Note 8: Which is your phablet fantasy?
The new Pixel 2 XL has still to hit the shelves, but given what we have seen so far, there’s already talk of which will be the latest dream phone for phablet lovers.
After Google unveiled the Pixel 2 and 2 XL, it’s clear this time around, there was a lot more to be impressed by. The unique, spectacular camera technology, the advancements in AI tech like Google Lens, and unlimited high-quality storage in the cloud are just a few highlights. But on the other hand, 2017 will be remembered as the year AI came ‘first’, and among other big changes, the smartphone and tech order is in for a big shake up in the coming years.
Although the Pixel 2 XL is an impressive phone, it doesn’t wow in the same way the Galaxy Note 8 does. Maybe it’s because the Note 8 delivers undisputed dominance in a way we’ve come to expect using top-of-the-line specs and design that do all but ensure a future-proof investment. This is a big contrast to Google’s Pixel 2 XL which, although in line with industry trends, is taking a lot more risks in terms of product identity.
The Pixel 2 XL is Google being Google after all, but we nevertheless have two phones sporting clearly different philosophies. So let’s say you had the budget right now. Which phone would you chose?
I think this phone looks really cool!
My choice Pixel! there are several reasons behind it. We know that both have Android OS, which is Google property. Some most useful apps are youtube, chrome, g-map, drive, g-mail, they all Google's products. So when we use lots of Google product in other smartphones too, so why we can't use google smartphone?
For me I'm looking for the pure Android experience which you don't get with the note 8. The LG V30 is closer to that than the note 8 in my opinion. So for me it's a choice between the Pixel 2 XL and the V30.
The V30 is indeed a contender. It wasn't easy narrowing it down to just two!
Ridiculous that the Pixel 2 doesn't have wireless charging... and a head phone jack.
Note 8 is a Beast! Best Phone so far!
I'll take the note8. It incorporates all the toys one would ever need. The pixels are very good phones but for the money there still lacking a couple of premium features!
