On the left is the Pixel 2 XL with a 6-inch 2,880x1,440-pixel display and on the right is the Pixel 2 with a 5-inch 1,920x1,080-pixel display.
The larger Pixel 2 XL has thinner bezels and a smaller forehead and chin than last year's Pixel XL. Its svelte design pairs well with creme brulee and a cold brew coffee.
Both phones have a fingerprint reader on the back.
An easy way to tell the Pixel 2 and 2 XL apart are the corners of the display. The 2 XL has rounded corners that mirror the corners of the actual phone.
The Pixel 2 has a display with squared off corners like the original Pixel and Pixel XL.
Another difference is that the Pixel 2 XL has noticeably thinner bezels than the Pixel 2.
Another difference between the two new phones is the placement of the rear camera and flash. On the Pixel 2 XL, the camera is on the left and the flash is on the right.
But on the Pixel 2, the flash is on the left and the camera is on the right.
One side of the phone has the volume rocker (left) and the sleep/wake button (right).
To many people's dismay, both phones lack a headphone jack. On the bottom of the phone is a lonely USB-C port used for charging and plugging in headphones via a supplied dongle.
Like the original Pixel, the fingerprint scanner is on the back of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.
In the box, you get a USB-C to headphone jack dongle, but Google does not include headphones in the box.
There is an Always On display for quick glances at the time and notifications.
The OLED display was easy to see even in direct sunlight.
Android Auto and the Pixel 2 are like peanut butter and jelly. You can rock out to the Boss, find you destination and view weather conditions.
Google Lens within the Google Photos app lets you find out more information about the subject in your photo.
Google Lens is only available on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Just tap the Lens icon to find out more information about your photo's subject.
No need to worry about getting water on your new Pixel 2. It has a water protection rating of IP67.
Google claims it can be submerged under a meter of water for 30 minutes.
Bu even with a single camera, Google added a bunch of software and machine learning to improve the Pixel 2's photography skills.
Video gets less shaky because the Pixel 2 uses both electronic stabilization (EIS) and optical stabilization (OIS) to prevent excessive shake. After recording the video, the phone also scans your video comparing each frame to compensate for any intentional movements like a pan or a tilt.
The Pixel 2 captures photos with great detail, though with slightly less saturation than the iPhone 8 Plus.
There is an mode called HDR+ Enhanced that is able to better handle scenes that have both really bright areas and really dark areas.
Both the Pixel 2 and 2 XL are available for preorder now and will begin shipping on October 29.
