What customers say about "Display"
Google Pixel 2 Unlocked 64gb (Black)
  • The display is absolutely beautiful. The new screen allows for individual pixels to be turned on or off which makes the blacks super dark as there's no backlight. I think this is also why the battery life is so awesome.
  • Screen brightness is significantly higher by default than the 6p. The battery life is also significantly different as far as drainage per usage minute surfing, games, music, etc. The size fits way better in my pocket and hand.
  • Out of the box, the Pixel 2 has an always on display showing the time/date, and app icon notification.
  • The screen, while vibrant and clear, is very bright. Its crisp clear and very pleasing to look at.
  • Automatic brightness is not responsive. It only dims a bit.
  • Bought this phone after it went on sale for $450 and it was nothing but problems for 3 days. The screen would lock up, the phone would randomly shut down and or restart.
LG G6 32 GB - Unlocked (AT&T/T-Mobile/Verizon) - Platinum - Prime Exclusive
  • Very good design, impressed with display
  • The LCD screen gets the job done and looks nice
  • The standout feature of this phone has been the screen size. First, despite what every video review and article says, a 5.7 inch diagonal screen with an 18:9 aspect physically has less surface area that an 5.7 inch display (or even a 5.5 inch display) with a 16:9 aspect ratio.
  • The fingerprint scanner and knock on feature AND always on display!
  • Perfect size. Very comfortable feeling when you hold it with one hand.

What customers say about "Processor"
Google Pixel 2 Unlocked 64gb (Black)
  • There is absolutely no lag in this phone. As soon as you touch a button or spot on the screen, its already where you need to be before the entire weight of your finger crashes down. You can snap photos one after the other and not face any dreaded processing hold screen.
  • Snappy snapdragon 835 is amazing. It houses a phenomonal performance in the processor area, graphical area with the adreno graphics and it is efficient on battery.
  • I got this phone for my wife and she loves it. It's clean and fast android.
  • I purchased this about a month ago and so far I really like it The Google Pixel 2 is fast and the picture quality is very good.
  • Get this phone over the Iphone, it is so super fast and so much easier to you. All of your stuff is saved via your google account, and not some stupid apple ID. Great phone camera and overall visually great display.
LG G6 32 GB - Unlocked (AT&T/T-Mobile/Verizon) - Platinum - Prime Exclusive
  • Even though it has the Snapdragon 821 and not the 835 but it's really fast and fluid all the time (despite the Amazon bloatware).
  • The LG G6 runs a Snapdragon 821, which is last year's processor, and only has 32 gb of internal storage. It is also cheaper than Snapdragon 835 devices like the Galaxy S8. Anyway, the 821 is plenty fast for normal users.
  • Last year's good processor
  • If you read reviews, you will see that the processor is not quite as speedy as the Qualcomm 835 that comes with the Samsung S8. However, this phone works great

What customers say about "Camera"
Google Pixel 2 Unlocked 64gb (Black)
  • Don't get me wrong, the camera is the best I've seen on a phone. But comparing to the Nexus 5x, you don't notice THAT much of a difference.However, with the performance, you can actually take pictures and not have the phone crash on you.
  • The phone is not as user friendly as the iPhone, but once you get it set up to your liking, it's amazing. The camera is terrific.
  • The camera on here is great. It is steady and accurate. The photo capturing while moving in motion to get the best shot possible is phenominal. Camera sensor is accurate on color, depth, clarity and blows the previous generation out the water.
  • The phone had an excellent camera that topped the iphone X that my girlfriend has.
  • This phone has the best camera out of any of the 15 phones I've had in the past which were always the latest and greatest at the time. Takes flawless pics even when really quickly snapping pics and shaking.
LG G6 32 GB - Unlocked (AT&T/T-Mobile/Verizon) - Platinum - Prime Exclusive
  • Wide angle camera lets you take a wider view of the background in your pictures
  • The 3 cameras (only for day or with good lighting at night) take excellent and impressive photos (comparable with S8/8+).
  • The wide angle camera can come in very handy especially if you like to take selfies.
  • The camera quality is amazing! Photos come out great and the wide angle view is literally so useful.
  • Lag on picture taking. I had the Note 8 and you could instantly take pics. This one seems to have a lot longer shutter time

What customers say about "Features"
Google Pixel 2 Unlocked 64gb (Black)
  • OK Google detection is much improved. Not sure if this is due to hardware or software, but I no longer have issues waking my phone up to tell it to create a reminder or something like that.
  • Finger print sensor is lightning fast. Haven't had too many issues with my fingerprint not reading although I did load the same finger twice to get better results.
  • Always on display is great when you're sleeping and as you can glace over to look if you have it on a smartphone stand on the nightstand.
  • I miss the headphone jack. i use corded headphones regularly. That being said, I rarely use the headphone jack and charge the phone at the same time so using the USB-C to 3.5 mm audio adapter hasn't been an issue.
  • Bluetooth volume doesn't match the folume range of the Bluetooth device. In other words I can control the full range of the Bluetooth in 20% of the volume visual control range.
LG G6 32 GB - Unlocked (AT&T/T-Mobile/Verizon) - Platinum - Prime Exclusive
  • Knock: double tap twice on your screen to turn it on
  • Fingerprint reader is pretty responsive and accurate
  • Micro SD slot for those who need that additional bit of storage space
  • The fingerprint sensor is fast and it does not sound weird like the LG G5. It has unlock by facial recognition.
  • Love that its water resistant, virtually water proof.
  • There are a handful of junk apps which are not needed but most can be uninstalled or disabled
  • Power button and fingerprint reader is in the back of the phone which needs some getting used to

What customers say about "Power"
Google Pixel 2 Unlocked 64gb (Black)
  • With my previous Nexus 5x, if I used the phone (basic stuff like reading news, listening to music, and maybe watching a couple youtube videos/using the maps app) I could maybe make it half a day. With the Pixel 2 after a day of light use I still have 50% battery left.
  • Battery: EASILY make it through a day. Heavy use acquired about 5-5.5 hours of screen on time MAX.
  • This phone has great features and a very good battery life!
  • Easy to use, intuitive, very user friendly, long long long battery life.
  • Battery drain so fast after using it for 30 days. Reached out to google, recognized problem with the battery but asked me to get it exchanged through Bestbuy or Verizon.
LG G6 32 GB - Unlocked (AT&T/T-Mobile/Verizon) - Platinum - Prime Exclusive
  • Battery lasts all day no problem
  • I am on my phone all day. I literally play clash of clans every moment I get. The battery life is good enough to get me through the day with around 20-40%. Considering I am playing games on it all the time, that's pretty good.
  • Long battery life and quick charge, too. Seriously, it'll be 100% in about an hour and a full charge will last well over a day. I basically charge it in the mornings while I was washing up for work. It'll be at 70% or so, and that is more than enough to carry me through until next morning.
  • Biggest let down is the middling battery life
  • The battery life is about average. I list that as a con, because this is a flagship running an 821. It should be better than average. I
