The second generation of Google's Pixel phone line, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, are some of the top phones for Android enthusiasts. The excellent camera and interesting design keep the Pixel 2 phones in the running even as newer Android phones arrive.
The Pixel 2 camera has a single 12.2-megapixel sensor, which performed very well in our tests.

The back of the Pixel 2 has a glass panel that cuts across the rest of the aluminum backing. You can see the camera, LED flash and two Laser Detect Autofocus (LDAF) sensors. There's also the fingerprint sensor below the glass divide.

The Pixel 2 phones use a USB-C port to charge. There's no headset jack, so this is where you'll also attach a dongle if you want to use wired headphones.
Notice the brushed aluminum texture in this photo of the Pixel 2's power button.
