Design and Body
Pixel 2 XL has a flawless aluminium body with the glass panel on the top of the device. The glass is shorter and doesn’t cover the fingerprint sensor, moreover, the camera sensor on the back is bigger this time. There is a “G” logo at the bottom of the back, with the power and volume buttons on the right side. Mind you the glass is the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and is, of course, scratch resistant.
Pixel 2 XL has a durable and long battery life which means that you don’t have to dread a dying phone in the mid of the day. It sports a 3,520 mAh cell but is irreplaceable by the user.

It features an octa-core 2.35 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform, an Adreno 540 GPU, and 4 GB of RAM. It has a built-in storage of 128 GB models.
It has the latest Pixels’ Always-On Display’ that allows you to listen to audio playing around and gets the song information for you without unlocking. That’s the magic of the Google Assistant.
It can take a splash
One of the biggest news is that Pixel 2 XL comes with waterproofing. The Google Pixel 2 XL comes with water- and dust-resistance ratings of IP67, thus it can survive in up to 1 meter of fresh water for up to 30 minutes at a time.
