Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL vs the Galaxy Note 8, iPhone X, and the best of the rest: size comparison
Google has just made its 2017 smartphone lineup official in the form of the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.
The Google Pixel 2 features a 5-inch 1080p display, retaining the more traditional design of last year's model, while the Pixel 2 XL follows 2017 trends and is outfitted with a QHD+ 18:9 display surrounded by thin bezels. Employing two very different designs for its new flagship lineup is a smart move on Google's part and an excellent way to cover all bases: have an "oldschool" device with larger bezels to cater to traditionalists, and have another one that follows the new trends to cater to the cool kids. Only the Pixel 2 XL doesn't have the thinnest bezels on the block, but that's a different story entirely!
The Pixel 2 offers more of an incremental update over its predecessor, sticking to the same general form factor and design, albeit offering the benefits of the latest in mobile tech under the hood. The Pixel 2 XL is a different beast entirely, as it sports a beautiful 18:9 6-inch display with a resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixels, which puts it in the same league as the Galaxy S8+, Note 8, LG G6, and LG V30, as far its footprint and design are concerned.
With that said, lets see how the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL stack up against the competition in terms of size and weight:
