Google Pixel 2 review: dated design lets down smartphone that almost had it all
Cracking camera, good battery life and great performance are offset by a disappointingly big bezels, making it feel like a missed opportunity
Google’s smaller 5in Pixel 2 offers the same features of its bigger 6in sibling, but looks more like the second coming of the Nexus 5X from 2015.
The back of the Pixel 2 is nearly identical to the larger Pixel 2 XL – the same glass panel at the top, same textured “hybrid coating” on the aluminium body, same fingerprint sensor and rounded corners. This time the camera is placed to the right of the flash, not the left, and the matt grey Google logo replaces the shiny chrome one.
