Google will enable Pixel Visual Core in Android 8.1

Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL

The Google Pixel 2 Now Playing function can intelligently recognize over 17,000 songs that are playing in the background.

In the past, photos shot on a phone camera would fall apart if you tried to edit them after the fact-there just wasn't enough data for tweaking. While consumers can also get the phone unlocked through Google's own website, it is, generally speaking, a phone that must be sought out.

The biggest difference between the Pixel 2 and the iPhone 8, which is the easy comparison, is that lack of a second 56-millimeter zoom lens that comes on the iPhone 8Plus. Especially tricky is the act of stretching your thumb to the top of the display, to drag down the notifications bar. It will automatically detect the music it hears playing and display details of what each song is on the lock screen of your Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL. And before installing this Live wallpaper app, you must have the Google wallpaper's app already installed on your smartphone. Google's bigger phablet lasted 12 hours and 9 minutes, versus 11:07 for the Pixel 2.

We'll have to do some more in depth tests with the Pixel 2 and its competitors, but it's certainly lining up to retake its crown. Samsung's features colorful designs. And in that it succeeds - mostly. Neither was necessarily ideal.

But on a serious note, when exactly does this invisible menu button function?

We've been hearing about Google's desire to design its own SoCs for almost two years now.

You can expect lots of abstract backgrounds, some great aerial views with subtle action in the scene.

So on this screen, you'll find no emails. It's very likely that you'll never even notice that it's happening.

It's a fast device, just as fast as every other flagship smartphone out there.

"You picked up your phone for a reason", says Huang.

Note that the squid changes size, so you might get a baby or a behemoth.

Note that holding your finger on the display on the third tap will temporarily enlarge; just lift your digit again to return to the normal view.

Google is not the only company considering "glanceability" as a means to limit distraction.

Google Assistant is embedded in the phone and getting smarter with conversational speech.

Now Google is looking to build upon its Pixel prowess with the Pixel 2.

According to Google, Pixel Visual Core is an eight-core Image Processing Unit (IPU), which will make the HDR+ image processing run "5x faster and at less than 1/10th the energy" than the Snapdragon 835 processor onboard the Pixel 2 phones. There's a benefit to being Android system UI.

This is really just an Oreo feature, but you shouldn't forget that if round app icons aren't your thing, Google has built in a handful of choices, including square, rounded square, squircle, and teardrop. There's such a popularity around...growth hacking. "At the end of the day, people are always using the phone". It's pretty interesting. I don't know. Note that you need to be online to access these.

The upside to the bezels is they hold a set of stereo speakers that give the handset a much punchier sound than the original Pixel, though headphones are still the best option for audio.

Thankfully Google recognised this flaw and decided to help out a bit. There are no numbers next to them or any other sort of annotated guilt. Reviews are starting to flood the internet, and while a majority are quite impressed with the handsets' camera, it looks like things could get even better. Google will even admit this. I did once manage to trigger the "Active Edge" (as the squeezing feature is called) in my pocket, but only when I was trying to and had it on the lightest setting.

Around the back, things have been updated slightly. I really like the screen.

Google's image search engine is at your fingertips with the Pixel 2. That's one of life's little ironies that I'll gladly accept.
