Google Pixel 2: Does it Come With Headphones?

Google Pixel 2: Does it Come With Headphones?

A ChromeOS operating system-powered Pixelbook that sells for over $1,000 will not probably to be a hot seller - the aging ChromeOS that only runs web apps has come a long way over the years without key upgrades.

But the spotlight has been shone on battery issues following the disastrous problems faced by Samsung with it's 2016 Galaxy Note 7.

But Samsung stuck its nose to the grindstone and engineered the lovely Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, which were unveiled earlier this year.

Lamontagne is now scheduled to be in York County Superior Court on December 22. She had been placed on leave earlier this year after the allegations surfaced.

Sadly, the Galaxy Note 8 lags a bit behind when it comes to video, doing a good but not excellent job at it.

Knock on wood, but so far there have been no widespread issues with the device and it looks fantastic. The Pixel 2 has a display density of 441 pixels per inch and the Pixel 2 XL has a plastic OLED display with 538 pixels per inch; for comparison, Apple's iPhone 8 has a less efficient liquid crystal, or LCD, display with 326 pixels per inch, its iPhone 8 Plus has a LCD display with 401 pixels per inch, and its iPhone X has an OLED display with 458 pixels per inch. Google should improve the last year's camera on the Pixel, so expect this smartphones to win honors in that regard and go head-to-head with the recently-launched iPhone 8 and 8 Plus on camera quality as well as Galaxy Note 8's. Still, it's one point behind the Galaxy Note 8 in terms of photo performance with a score of 99, since the Galaxy Note 8 nabbed a ideal score of 100 upon testing. The Note 8's HDR is also said to be lagging behind some of the competition, as some snaps appeared overexposed, despite it doing a great job in terms of exposure overall. It features a massive 6GB of memory, versus the 3GB four in the 8 Plus'. What really matters is how well the RAM and CPU combined work with the software. But Apple's A11 Bionic chip, which powers the iPhone 8, has outperformed all Android smartphones running Snapdragon 835 in recent benchmark tests. Both of these phones were given the rating of 94. It also supports microSDXC cards up to 256GB, which, as always, Apple doesn't bother with. The Galaxy S9 is already rumored to have the same photo technology.

Neither handset offers an edge to edge bezel-less display. The iPhone 8 Plus still has those massive forehead and chin bezels. All in all, this may be a short lived victory for the Note8 and iPhone 8 Plus, but let's let them enjoy it while it lasts. Flash performance is also generally nice, if somewhat inconsistent. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus both come with LCDs and not OLEDs.
