As we all know that Google has moved from Nexus series to Pixel series last year, now the second flagship is ready to come this year in October which is getting name as Google Pixel 2. So, let’s see what audience is expecting from this new smartphone of 2017.
- A more polished design
The Google Pixel is a pretty mobile but a bit … boring. We liked some details like matt finish and shine. The brand has not wanted to risk at all and from a distance it is difficult to distinguish Google from the Apple iPhone 7. The Samsung S7 has achieved its own style so it is clear that the Google Pixel 2 will need to offer a more daring and interesting.
- A more durable finish
The Google Pixel came with an original finish that combined the matte with the brightness, but only after a few hours we began to notice tiny scratches on both the Pixel and the Pixel XL when we try them. If Google does not give the option of a Pixel 2 that is completely matte will have to check that the finish is now more durable.
- A brighter screen
The Google Pixel has one of the best screens we’ve ever used, full of life and color. However, its AMOLED screen is not as bright as that of its competitors. The Google Pixel offers a peak of brightness of 411 cd / m 2, while the Samsung S7 and S7 Edge reach 500 cd / m 2 in auto mode. If the Google Pixel 2 wants to lead you should have a brighter screen.
- A faster processor
The Google Pixel is fast but the Google Pixel 2 should still be much faster. Our Pixel XL had a 1,546 Geekbench 4 rating on the simple core test and 4,142 on multiple cores, which is fine. However, the Samsung S7, S7 Edge and iPhone 7 are still clearly ahead, as all three devices exceed the 5,000 mark in the Geekbench 4 multi-core test.
If the Pixel 2 is going to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the iPhone 7s should have a processor much faster than the one that is used today. It is also rumored that Samsung and Apple will go to full length with its new range of devices.
- A battery with greater autonomy
Actually the Google Pixel has a good battery but is not the leader in its segment. Despite having a 2,770 mAh (not very large) battery, the Pixel lasted no less than 16 hours and 23 minutes in our test, while the Pixel XL (3,450 mAh) arrived at 14 hours and 55 minutes.
However, these benefits are somewhat less impressive compared to those of their rivals. The Samsung Galaxy S7, for example, lasted 18 hours and 42 minutes. Another device to consider is the OnePlus 3 that lasted 16 hours and 56 minutes under the same conditions. If the Google Pixel 2 wants to “touch the face” to the new wave of high-end mobile you will need to be able to put a much larger battery inside your case.
