Pixel 2, cramming all the perfect features

Just when you thought there isn’t much innovation juice left in the smartphone department for this year, BAM! The not so hyped yet the most anticipated smartphone, Pixel 2 arrives, swiping away all the mediocre and imperfect stuff off the table, setting a bar that’s gonna be tough to beat. Here’s a glimpse of a bunch of stuff Google is gonna be throwing at you.

Improved look and feel: Comes in four colours and two variants, the smaller pixel 2 with a similar to the size factor of the original pixel and the pixel 2 XL which is such a delight to look at, google does right what most don’t, an overall cleaner and modern look, with the XL rocking the bezel less display, a coloured power button which compliments the look, an aluminium finish which doesn’t feel metallic but gives out a very smooth texture, the placement of what might be the fastest fingerprint scanner is on point and the best part is the feature which isn’t used at all but is too vital to skip, two front facing stereo speakers which gives you the most awesome user experience.

Display: The smaller variant has a 1080p AMOLED display, the XL on the other hand rocks a quad HD display with much smaller bezels which gives a viewing ratio of 18:9 which is a total symmetrical screen. The AMOLED display is put to brilliant use with the notifications for apps showing up with their logos showing up in white while the rest of the screen is turned off (a good way to save the battery), another cool new feature is the ‘now playing’ which uses the always on microphones to recognise the song playing in your surroundings and pop it up on your screen on which you can double tap to listen to or find more info about the song.

Camera: The pixel took away the highest DXO mark yet which is a brilliant 98, it has a single 12 megapixel camera as opposed to the dual cameras flying around now days, but serves you in the portrait mode even better than the rest, with software capabilities to blur the background. The front camera is an 8 megapixel which is better than the main camera of some phones out there which also utilises the portrait capabilities. There is another new motion feature installed here which gives you the option to include movement in your shots.

Exclusive Pixel features: Google has decided to push AI first in this new device, which lets the pixel boast a bunch of features like, squeeze, which lets you trigger the assistant, live wallpapers which are on another level of utilizing the aesthetic capabilities of the resolution, the search bar is now at the bottom which is a lot more convenient. The Pixel 2 is gonna come out with Android 8.0 Oreo, with the highest model priced at around $600. The major catch here is the machine learning that Google promotes, which is gonna make your phone give out a better user experience as time passes, plus it gives great new opportunities to developers to include innovative features later on. All in all it’s a perfect package which is priced $400 less than its main contender the Iphone X and gives a load of better features loaded in the best UI yet, this would make the Pixel 2 a sure shot contender for the phone of the year.

Display

The new iPhone X comes with the beautiful bezel less, edge to edge, immersive display which gives you ultra high resolution and all in all a brilliant user experience with viewing, gaming and operating. The neatly packed and tucked up sensor housing gives an amazing blend to the UI by giving opportunities to create innovative app designs and animations in regard to immersive viewing experience, displaying connectivity or even just scrolling while in landscape mode.

iOS 11

From what we hear the new iOS update is going to be bringing a fresh look to the devices whilst also maintaining snappiness. Some of its key new features are the new design of the control center where you can access and modify quick settings in a way with vertically adjusting volume and brightness bars, gesture controls where you swipe up or down the display to access different menus and also new designs for app and other icons integrating with and utilizing the new display to its full potential. Apple is really aiming for that button less experience this time round.

Face ID

This new unlocking feature is smarter and snappier than ever; it uses “tiny invisible dots” which are essentially light projectors which sense the structure of your face to recognize and differentiate it from another’s face. It is capable of reading your face extremely quick even in the dark and isn’t going to be fooled if someone else tries to manipulate it as it requires you to be staring at the phone, plus it works with sunglasses!

Apple Face ID

Apple’s Face ID, possibly the new trend in Smartphones

Unless you have been living under a rock, you know that the new big thing in the smartphone world has been announced, the iPhone X. There is a gamut of exciting changes that have been introduced in the device which take it away from the traditional way of its predecessors, but the most crucial change is actually not the beautiful bezel less screen, it’s the new Face ID technology.

The bezel less screen was anticipated to some level, we thought that they would just move the fingerprint scanner to the back, but Apple has a way of standing apart from its competitors, so what do they do? They introduce a whole new technological advancement which might just prove to be the next big change that other companies follow after the touch ID.

So how does it work?

From what we have heard the Face ID uses “tiny invisible dots” which are essentially light projectors which sense the structure of your face to recognize and differentiate it from another’s face. The user has to stare at the phone, not for long obviously, and swipe up on the screen and that’s it, your phone is unlocked, and this process is extremely quick so you don’t need to worry about speed. Plus, it works on sunglasses! What’s different is that only one face can be registered as ID as opposed to multiple fingerprints in the touch ID, you can even disable the recognition software temporarily by holding the buttons on both sides, and you have to reset the device to change the ID.

From the looks of how snappy it is, this might just be the new trend after bezel less displays.
