Google releases November Android Security Bulletin and Factory Images with patches

"Our goal is for your Pixel phone to get more useful and delightful over time", he added, which indicates Google will have more patches and software tweaks for the Pixel 2 further down the line.

A new software update from the company hopes to try and solve the issues with the high-end phones.

Alongside the usual Android Security Bulletin, Google has also released a separate bulletin for the Pixel/Nexus devices detailing the additional security vulnerabilities and functional improvements on the Pixel and Nexus devices.

The devices come in two versions: the five-inch £629 ($649) Pixel 2 and the six-inch £799 ($849) Pixel 2 XL.

Beyond just trying to improve the colors, the firm has also implemented some changes that will attempt to prevent screen burn-in, like reducing the maximum brightness of the display and allowing the navigation bar to fade away after a period of time. Well, the search giant did work on that option but didn't follow through with it. The Pixel 2 has the perfect camera.

Google Assistant has been enhanced to support the Singaporean English, commonly known as Singlish.

The company is also reportedly working on a December security patch, tipped to offer even more enhancements. Does that matter? I'm not sure it does. The data collected by the rear cameras is then processed using machine learning and AI by the iPhone to achieve the portrait effect where the person is separated from background. It's not the "wow" est phone out there. "The curved front glass grows on your very quickly, and even though it comes with a very large 6.0" display, it never seems overwhelming in terms of size. As 9to5Google explains, most phones ship with the coating in place, which makes it easier to wipe fingerprints off the screen. This is particularly true for images clicked in low light.

Another display-related Pixel 2 XL complaint has been the case of burn-in.

I do actually kind of prefer the HDR-like quality of the old display. The last one should ideally make the screen's color issues less noticeable; if nothing else, it should make the Pixel 2 XL's screen a bit more similar to Samsung's colorful OLED screens. And this fact contributes to my impressions of the device for sure.

I can't really afford $1000 for a phone.

Of course, the Pixel 2 XL isn't alone in this regard.

With the iPhone's home button, there's a short delay while iOS distinguishes between a press and a hold.
