Pixel 2 XL vs Nexus 6P: Worth the Upgrade?

Pixel 2 XL vs Nexus 6P: Camera

Aside from the huge screen and faster performance, the biggest and most notable difference between these phones is the camera. The Pixel and now the Pixel 2 really steps up the smartphone camera game. If the camera is a priority for you, we highly recommend making the switch. 

The new Pixel 2 XL uses a large sensor with a f/1.8 aperture and 12.2 Megapixels. Google added optical image stabilization, electronic image stabilization, portrait mode, and dual pixel technology for stunning photos. Low light performance is some of the best on the market, and the auto-focus is incredibly fast. Not to mention 4k video recording, slow-motion video, blur effects and more. 

Even the front-facing camera is better even though they're both 8MP. The Nexus 6P has fairly outdated camera sensor technology, and the lack of image stabilization really hurts the quality of photos. 

The smartphone camera with the highest DxoMark score in history is the Pixel 2 XL. That's all you really need to know. You won't be disappointed by the camera on Google's new phone.

    After two years with the 6p i can confidently say : 1. no, battery doesn’t show sign of wear and holds up for extended use.
    2. The 6p is made with much better quality of production and materials, which makes it more durable.
    3. Pixel 2 xl got a bigger screen and that’s it, it doean’t look better and it is much more prone for shattering – lg really messed up this time.
    3. Google first announced the pixel 2 will come with a snapdragon 836 proccessor, which turned out to be a lie. Major downside for google and for me a reason not to buy their products.
    4. Back in the time up until nexus 5, google made sure the nexus will be the most powerful phone in the market for a fair price. today it’s just another phone, that costs like an iphone but shares the quality of a nockoff chinese galaxy s3.

    Bottom line
    You messed up google, you really messed up. And i’m looking at you too LG.
