Google`s Pixel 2 arrives on shelves October 19, and we have reason to believe it`s going to be a serious player. We have a rundown of the top features that we believe will help the Pixel 2 to be a success, not that it needs that much help with the power of Google behind it.

Aside from its sleek, appealing and modern design features, there are tonnes of tech specs available for the Pixel 2 that will allow it to compete in the current market. Google claims the Pixel 2`s battery can last for 7 hours on a 15 minute charge. The Pixel 2`s Android 8.0 Oreo OS should be more than enough to cope with the demands of the modern smart phone user. Google Assistant will be on hand to keep users voice activated requests on point. Space is saved on the device by Google`s decision to omit the headphone jack from its design, thus requiring Bluetooth headphones or an adapter. Also omitted is any form of External Storage slots, limiting the device to either 64GB or 124GB of Storage Space, which with these memory size options should`nt be too much of an issue for the average user. Leaving these features out will hopefully have helped the design team to produce a highly functional & quick device.
