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.

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.
Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930A) Unlocked Smartphone, Black Onyx
  • With the snapdragon processor and 4 gig of RAM, this phone is quick to run your programs without lag. More than enough storage even without an SD card.
  • Obviously it has faster processor, latest android version and other software enhancements.
  • This phone is great for multitasking with its split screen support, and the processor is able to keep up with several open remote connections at once.
  • Updating from Galaxy S5, noticing that the processor gets very hot when in operation, just like the S5.

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.
Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930A) Unlocked Smartphone, Black Onyx
  • Phone is nice and light, camera takes awesome pictures and when watching a video or movie, the picture is so clear and detailed
  • While the Camera on the Galaxy S5 was goo, the camera on the S7 jumps leaps and bounds further, Would recommend this product toa friend (and a foe!)
  • Nice screen, easy to use, great color, camera unbelievably works great in dark, much better than iPhone.
  • Great camera with good night capability.
  • The camera was really good but it sure didn't last very long on batteries got awful hot

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.
Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930A) Unlocked Smartphone, Black Onyx
  • Love that is waterproof and has a sd slot
  • Bought this phone because of water resistance features...and has already survived two dunks in water. Extremely satisfied.
  • It's not too big, very good looking, lots of storage, easy to operate, love the fingerprint ID function.
  • Works great, speaker is loud, screen is bright, touch screen sensitive, and very good looking.
  • One thing that Samsung can improve upon though is the slot for the SD (memory) and SIM card. Putting in a micro card for memory and SIM is tricky and requires a steady hand

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.
Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930A) Unlocked Smartphone, Black Onyx
  • I am very happy with the battery life compared to S6.
  • Recently switched over to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and it's battery holds up better than any other phone i've had (LG V10, HTC One...)
  • Battery charges very quickly
  • Battery runs out a bit quickly unless put on power saving mode all the time.
  • This phone is Low on battery life. Rest of the things are ok
