Antonio Villas-Boas, provided by Published 8:00 am PDT, Saturday, July 14, 2018 Antonio Villas-Boas/Business Insider What better way to test out a couple of the best smartphone cameras than on a casual stroll through town. I was curious to see how the $530 OnePlus 6 fared against the $650 Google Pixel 2 — the latter of which sports the best camera on any smartphone at the moment. The OnePlus 6 performs way better than its price would indicate, so perhaps a significantly superior camera would help account for the the price difference with the Pixel 2. At least, that's what I was expecting. After testing both smartphone cameras, though the Pixel 2 is still the leader for taking the best shots, but the OnePlus 6 isn't very far behind at all. I can't say the Pixel 2's camera is $120 better. Its camera even captures colors better than the Pixel 2, in some cases.

Chromebook pixel 2
It looks like the leaked video about the Google Chromebook Pixel was real after all. Google officially announced the device today, and it is already available for purchase in the Google Play Store. Of course, unlike other Chromebooks, this one isn't looking at the budget audience. Instead, this is a powerhouse Chromebook that will set you back $1300 if you want one. The Pixel looks pretty amazing. It is designed very well and has some very impressive specs. The Pixel is packing an Intel Core i5 Processor (Dual Core 1.8GHz), with integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a backlit keyboard, and the real focus: a 12.85" touchscreen display rocking a 2560x1700 resolution (239 PPI) and covered in Gorilla Glass 2. And, if you don't think 32GB of storage is enough, you also get 1TB (yes, that means terabyte) of Google Drive storage free for 3 years. Of course, being a Chromebook, you're just getting a browser in a box, which is good enough for … [Read more...] about The Google Chromebook Pixel is real, and will cost you $1300

September 26, 2017 - Written By Alexander Maxham Google is slated to announce the Pixel 2 on October 4th, at an event in San Francisco. As per usual with unannounced smartphones, there has been plenty of leaks of the new devices – including some pretty big ones in the past week. So many users already know just about everything about the upcoming devices, and at this point, they seem to be a bit underwhelming, even for a Google smartphone. Now it’s worth mentioning that a number of the leaks and renders we’ve seen recently, do not show the front of the device, which leads us to think that there may be a big surprise on the front (perhaps a 18:9 aspect ratio display like many other flagships in 2017). But at this point, the LG V30 and Galaxy Note 8 do definitely appear to be better smartphones than the Pixel 2.SoftwareOn the software front, the Pixel 2 will likely be better than the LG V30 and Galaxy Note 8 for a couple of reasons. These will ship with Android Oreo, … [Read more...] about Opinion: The Google Pixel 2 Will Not Be As Good As Note 8, LG V30
