In the online catalog, new smartphones from Google – Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL – are noticed. Recall that international sales of smartphones began on October as it started its Pixel and Pixel XL. At the same time since the announcement in the network there were rumors that new branded smartphones Google will not appear. Apparently, the rumors were unjustified.

You can note a metal case with a glass insert on the rear panel, a fingerprint scanner and a USB Type-C port.
There was an analog 3D Touch, like Apple, but if in iOS a lot of applications support this function, then here I was able to evaluate its charms only on standard Google applications, it’s almost useless.
The gesture control works: if you shake the phone in the palm of your hand, you can switch from the main camera to the additional one and back.If you press the power button twice, you can quickly start the camera from any application or on a locked screen.And if you run your finger along the fingerprint scanner, then open the curtain with notifications.
