Google's latest Pixel smartphones are considered among the best Android smartphones now available on the market, packing solid specs and features and offering a pure Android experience.

In easier words, you will just be spending around $18.74 every 30 days for a 64GB Pixel 2 XL, or $22.91 every month if you need double the internal storage space.

As part of its President's Day sale in the U.S., Best Buy is offering a $400 discount on the purchase of a Pixel 2 XL. On top of that, it is also offering a cashback of Rs 8,000 for transactions via Citibank cards - effectively bringing down the price of the smartphone to an alluring 41,999 rupees.

As mentioned earlier, the Citibank cashback offer is applicable on Flipkart and some select offline stores, the list of which can be found here.


As of mid-November a year ago, there had been complaints from Pixel 2 users regarding random camera crashes, with an error which stated "The camera device encountered a fatal error", upon accessing the application, thereby rendering it incapable of further operations.

Google reportedly shipped 3.9 million Pixel and Pixel 2 smartphones in 2017, according to IDC research director Francisco Jeronimo. The display is protected with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

On the imaging front the Google Pixel 2 (64GB) sports a 12.2 MP Camera with 1080@30fps, 60fps, 120 fps, 720@30fps, 60fps, 240 fps. On the other hand, the LG-made Google Pixel 2 XL comes with a similar set of specifications. The device comes with a rear mounted fingerprint sensor and packs a 2,700 mAh battery. It is backed by a 3520mAh battery and it promises to offer 7 hours battery backup in 15 minutes of charging.
