Taking the crown

from Mobile Syrup

In a field of tough competitors, especially this year, the Pixel 2 is among the best. Anytime a smartphone camera elicits the kind of confidence these two phones do, it’s noteworthy. The odds of a photo turning out well are overwhelmingly positive when firing away with them.

Fastest compact Android phone you can buy today

from Digit

The Google Pixel 2 is the Android phone we’d recommend to anyone who wants a compact Android phone and can afford its huge price tag. It has an excellent camera, but battery life needs some work and Google should put more into its design.

GSMArena

Just as good as the XL

Is the small Pixel 2 the better Pixel this year? Certainly not if you're looking for a large display. Put that aside, however, and the Pixel 2 delivers the goods just as well as its XL counterpart while being considerably more affordable, not to mention you can actually buy one right now.

Phone Scoop

A solid handset that might get lost in today's competitive landscape

from Phone Scoop

What sets the Pixel 2 apart is its great software and superior camera. If you can deal with the ho-hum design, the Pixel 2 is worthy competitor in today's compact flagship space.

The Guardian

Dated design lets down smartphone that almost had it all

from The Guardian

The Pixel 2 has everything good about the guts and software of its larger 6in sibling, the Pixel 2 XL, but squeezed into a smaller phone. On paper that sounds fantastic, but the large bezels around the screen, with big top and bottom panels, make the Pixel 2 look dated next to its top-end Android competition.

New Atlas

Google's vision of the ultimate smartphone

from New Atlas

If you need a huge, bezel-free display on your next handset then look elsewhere, but if you value camera performance and Google software design above everything else, and you want a phone you can still use in one hand, the Pixel 2 could well be the phone for you.

Can’t get much better

from Android Headlines

Google’s vision of Android is becoming clearer and clearer with each passing year, and although we’re not 100% of the way to the final product, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are an amazing example of how well a phone can be both built and designed.

High-end handsets that boasted premium specs

from Recombu

Google’s Pixel phones are among the very few Android handsets out there to offer a clean, unfettered version of the OS, packed inside some premium hardware. You might not get much in the way of frills, yet the Pixel is a well-constructed smartphone that delivers dependable performance and solid battery life, as well as one of the better cameras of 2017.
