Google Pixel 2 FAQs

How does the eSIM technology work on the Pixel 2?

You can use Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL without a SIM card, if you’re a Project Fi customer - Google’s own network. This technology has only previously been used in tablets and smartwatches, but is now available through Google’s smartphones.  

What is the Pixel 2 Active Edge squeeze feature?

The Active Edge feature is built around Pixel 2’s pressure-sensitive sides. By squeezing the phone, you can launch Google Assistant. And you can set how sensitive you want the edges to be, so you don’t accidentally launch the assistant when fishing the phone out your pocket. 

What is Google Lens?

Google Lens is an artificial intelligence (AI) technology, which works through Pixel 2’s camera. It understands what it’s ‘looking at’, and can then give you more information through the power of Google. A few examples might be a landmark, or a species of plant. 

What is the ‘always on’ display feature?

The always-on display is pretty much what it says on the tin. Instead of Pixel 2’s screen going completely black when you’re not using, you’ll always be able to see the time and any unread notifications. 

 

This feature can be disabled through the phone’s setting if you don’t want it. 

Is the Pixel 2 waterproof?

Pixel 2 is classed as water-resistant, certified as IP67. This means it will be fine if you get caught in a quick downpour, but you shouldn’t dunk it in the bath. 

Does Pixel 2 have wireless charging?

Unlike some other smartphones, Pixel 2 doesn’t support wireless charging.

Does Pixel 2 have expandable storage?

Yes and no. Pixel 2 doesn’t support the typical microSD card expansion for extra storage, however it does offer unlimited storage through Google Photos and Google Drive. So you should never be short on space when capturing and saving the memories. 

What are the main features of Pixel 2’s camera?

Pixel 2 has one of the best smartphone cameras ever made. It uses dual-pixels to capture professional-looking shots with a blurred background through a mode called Portrait Mode. And you can record video in glorious 4K. 

What separates Pixel 2 from Pixel 2 XL?

There aren’t many differences between Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. The main thing that differentiates the two is the display size and resolution. Pixel 2 has a 5-inch Full HD screen, compared to Pixel 2 XL’s super tall 6-inch Quad HD panel. 

Does Pixel 2 work with Daydream View VR headset?

Both Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are the perfect accompaniment to the 2017 version of the Daydream View VR headset.

Google Pixel 2 is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Screen scratches very easily Without dropping my phone at all, just having it in my pocket with change or my car keys the screen has been scratched a lot within the first month of me having thus phone. I moved to this from an iPhone se which after over 2 years of usage still has a less scratched screen. The phone also seems to be a lot slower opening/using some apps. More noticeable within Snapchat, between taking a photo and being able to type a message in the photo is a considerable me amount of time more than my previous se. The camera itself is amazing, and the finger print being on the back are my favourite things about this device so far. But overall early signs are of regret for changing over to android from iOS

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never Again I wrote a glowing review of this phone when I received it in January. But just over three months later it developed a strange fault that Google doesn't seem to have any answer to. My phone would not unlock with the correct pin. That was a random fault which came out of nowhere. It would recognise if I tried to enter a wrong pin, but whenever I entered my correct pin, it would just go back to the locked screen. The camera symbol on the locked screen also vanished and only the option for emergency call was on which I did not try because it wasn't an emergency so I don't know if that even worked! I switched the phone off and on a few times and the problem did not get resolved. I left it off for a bit too but even that didn't clear the issue. Luckily I wasn't alone and didn't need to make a call so I asked my husband to call me, he and I both had full receptions on our phone and he called but the phone would not ring on my end, but the call would go through on his end. In the end, I took it to Carphone Warehouse and the guy had never heard of such an issue with this phone. He was very helpful and tried a few troubleshooting steps, but the phone just would not unlock. In the end we had to do a factory re-set. Luckily I was not in the middle of nowhere needing to make a call. It left me pretty concerned so I called Google and they took down the details, put me on hold and then said to "just send in a report through my phone". I did and no one has been in touch with me and it is close to two weeks. I have tried to call them and they had no idea about my case, I tweeted to them and they took down the details and then stopped replying to my messages when I asked when when I could hear back from someone. The camera on this phone is good but I am not sure it's worth risking not having a phone to make or receive calls to.
