  • Pixel 2 headphone jack: Google explains controversial decision to ditch 3.5mm port

The announcement of the new Google Pixel smartphone brought many surprises - some good and some bad. The 5.5in display on the iPhone 8 Plus isn't bad at all-it's just the Google Pixel 2 XL's display is higher spec'd.

The race between the two rivals, Google and Apple is not a deep-rooted concept for us. You also get IP67 certification, which means the phones are dust and water resistant, up from last year's IP53 certification, but still a notch below the IP68 certification we've seen on Samsung and LG phones.

If you take a look at the images below, you will probably notice that the images captured by the Google Pixel 2 XL's cameras are simply more real-looking.

"You can also take high-quality portrait shots with the flawless background blurs, from both the front and back camera".

Google discovers Russian-bought ads on YouTube, Gmail and other platforms
Facebook has said those ads reached just 10 million of the 210 million U.S. users that log onto the service each month. Google identified less than $100,000 was spent on advertisements which were linked to Russian fake accounts.

Though Google changed their strategy in India, will the new Pixels sell more for their hefty asking price compared to less pricing in other countries?

You can buy the phone outright for $849.99 or go on a contract where prices start at $35.41 a month. It's really disappointing Google has stuck with a single-lens system in the rear. We dont make much of a secret that we think the larger model is the better phone. Now this is something that Apple is also offering with iOS 11 where there is a specific "Do Not Disturb While Driving" mode.

A mini version of the Google Home speaker, this time less focus on using for listening to music but more for answering questions, controlling your Chromecast, smart lights etc.

We can see a similar strategy with voice search; Google has opened up the API for hardware manufacturers such as Bose and Sonos to integrate the Google Assistant into their products. Danny Vena owns shares of Alphabet (A shares), Amazon, and Apple.

The Google Home Max will be launched in December. When you hold the iPhone X in your hand, you'll feel its sleek design, due the glass back and the shine Apple adds to their devices. The feature has a toggle button to turn it on and off, depending on user preference.

Like the HTC U11, the two Pixel 2 phones have an Active Edge that responds to squeezes by launching the Google Assistant.

The Google Home Mini sports a much smaller form factor than its larger brethren, created to take on Amazon's Echo Dot, and matches its $49.99 price tag.
