Google's Pixel 2 Earns High Marks in Spite of Dull Design

Google's Pixel 2 has a secret chip which will make your photos better

Pixel 2 The 5 new features you might have missed

But I expected it to be, well, smarter.

The feature correctly identified paintings of obscure figures in American history at a museum in New York, and it knew which Starbucks I was standing in front of, out of several in the neighborhood. Eventually, other Android phones and iPhones should get it, too, but Google isn't saying when.

With its own custom image processing unit (IPU), Google can lay claim to what has been until now been an exclusive differentiator of the iPhone.

A traditional camera like a DSLR relies on how the aperture of the lens works, both in its physical structure (which defines the shape of the bokeh) and how open it is (which controls what portions of the frame are in or out of focus).

If you are part of Nova Launcher's beta testers, get ready for this new feature. Apart from the pictures, the Google lens is also capable of finding out web addresses and phone numbers from signs.

Does that look like 2017 to you? "The team is aware of this issue and working towards a fix", the Google representative wrote in a response on Tuesday, Oct. 17.

First, the phone shoots an HDR+ burst, grabbing multiple shots in short order at a variety of exposure levels. An iris scanner lets you unlock the phone with your eyes.

After calling the first Pixel mobile "the greatest phone on the planet", Wired magazine's David Pierce reined in the praise a bit on this generation of Pixels.

The Pixel 2 and iPhone 8 Plus offer high-end camera performances, but they're not identical cameras. It's worth noting that you can buy adequate new Android phones and even better used phones for as little as $200. The update will enhance image processing.

Google was quick to announce to the world that the Pixel 2 topped the DxOMark camera rankings when it launched the new phones a couple of weeks ago.

Google will also continue to port new machine learning and imagining applications to use the PVC chip, meaning continued improvements and updates for Pixel users.

In fact, its oddly hidden placement suggests it may have accidentally been left behind from a rough draft of the Pixel 2 operating system. However, if you really want to leverage what Google's offering then Pixel 2 XL is a better option. From that point, click on "Search bar in Dock" and there you go. I have also photographed cats, cars, architecture, and nighttime scenes, and in each case, looking at them on the 2 XL made me want to edit some saturation in and modify the color balance. It has one of the best smartphone cameras. The 2 XL screen is actively nudging its users into making photo edits they'll later regret. These animations are adaptive icons so they are definitely worth checking out.
