nick, 13 Dec 2023how much for pixel2 ? working fine?. where are you?Battery is draining really fast. I know it needs a battery change but I imagine the apps updates also demand higher power from the device. The dong that converts usb to headphone almost never worked pratically since day one. The USB-C connection works pretty badly as well. I have to almost align it with the moon in order to work. Some chargers wont work at all and just won't charge fast. Really slow charge in spite of whatever is the power of your charger.
If you can get pass that, the camera is still pretty solid. Its weakness is starting to show year by year but you can notice how slow the camera race has gotten.
Tough being limited by is 64Gb space as well.
Anonymous, 11 Dec 2023I can sell you mine 4/64gb variant, if you want it.how much for pixel2 ? working fine?. where are you?
yomamaeeee, 25 Aug 2023this is not a LG battery If it doesn't have an LG battery what kind of battery does it have? Is it an HTC battery?
Margaret thatcher , 17 Aug 2023That's a great phone. It runs smoothly and has that tiny screen that is missing in 2023, ... moreSeriously the phone's dope , is classic as it is, I love it, but unfortunately, I lost it to thieves, so please, why could I get a second-hand , because I really missed that phone( pixel 2). I want to have it again.
Battery Life is decent. Turn on battery saver to extend battery life. I keep mine charged between 10%-90% & the battery lasts longer. Most ppl have access to charging in their car, at work, at home, charger packs etc. I easily get a full days use from one charge.
It's a great phone, light weight & easy to carry with me, great sound, great screen detail, etc.
Anonymous, 04 May 2023Probably not if you are using an original battery considering the age of this device. But havi... moreThat's a great phone. It runs smoothly and has that tiny screen that is missing in 2023, considering that 6 inch is the smallest screen available. The 2700 mAh LG battery is also something unacceptable and LG batteries are not known to have the longevity of a Xiaomi and oppo battery. But this capacity of 2700 mAh is way too small to consider buying this phone. If I have to buy a phone, used or new, the 4000 mAh battery is the bare minimum because bigger batteries now have more charge cycles
Anonymous, 18 Feb 2023What about the battery life in 2023? Can it go for a day?Probably not if you are using an original battery considering the age of this device. But having replaced the battery of mine once a couple years ago, I can say from experience the answer can be yes if you do that and don't use it too heavily that day. It's still fine as a daily driver if you don't care about software updates or install eg Lineage. Not motivated to replace it yet personally anyway.
Replaced the battery in my unit, now I'm getting way better battery life! 3 - 5 hrs of SOT depending on my usage
Anonymous, 18 Feb 2023What about the battery life in 2023? Can it go for a day?Basically got a new old stock of this one, battery life is excellent, around 5-7 hours of continuous use. But the standby time is even longer.
Been using one as a secondary device for over a year now and I'd say it's still a pretty good phone!!
The compact size is a big plus for me since i don't really have to do a lot of hand gymnastics to perform tasks, but that does cut down on the battery life. I bought mine used with a pretty tired battery with less than 60% battery health (using Accubattery), i get around 2 - 3 hrs of SOT with usage more to consuming social media, if you ever get this phone, i totally recommend changing out the battery if it wasn't already by the previous owner if ur buying used..
Other than that, this phone is great when it comes to software, with custom rom support at that! It's snappy, well optimized and a big difference compared to my experience on my Xiaomi Redmi Note 9. However, the screen does feel a bit cramped (being 5.0 inches compared to the 6.53 on the Redmi which I'm used to..) But the colors look good imo, it's the first time owning a phone with an OLED Display and it's worth it for me.
Haptics are sharp, tactile and button like, typing on it feels amazing and it's no slack to alerting you when a notification comes it.
Speakers on my unit were not the best, it's really crackly and doesn't really sound that good but the stereo pair is really an added treat! I'd recommend testing the speaker out before buying and not do the opposite (like i did...)
Cameras on Google Pixel devices are no slouch either, it's pretty well known that the cameras on these devices are nothing less than amazing!! Despite this device being over 5 years of age at the time of writing this, It still takes stunning photos with the 'Pixel Look'. Videos however, could be better but couldn't complain much due to the age and pixels not known for having the best looking video on a smartphone.Never the less, the footage is more than usable! Laser Autofocus is also a big treat, you can focus on smaller objects quite easily without much focus hunting happening.
All and all.. I do think this device is still worth considering! A Small compact device with superb cameras and a lightweight yet sturdy build!
But do keep in mind that this device is getting old, there's no lie that this device would be considered 'Obselete' in the spand of a few more years and software updates don't really exist since 2020.
What about the battery life in 2023? Can it go for a day?
duhhhhh, 12 Oct 2017Please go back to working on your search engine and leave the making of mobile phones to the V... moregoogle has been making phones for years what are you talking about like have u never heard of the google nexus phones etc
I've been a pixel2 user from 2017, in 2023 its still runs smoothly, decent battery life, awesome camera. Planning to use this till it lasts.
Anonymous, 15 Aug 2022How is the battery life on this phone ?It's good for about three years, then needs replacement
Anonymous, 15 Aug 2022How is the battery life on this phone ?I have this phone from 2018 and battery life starts to go out quickly. With normal day usage its less than a day, can survive a bit more if no wi-fi/lte/gps is on.
I used this phone as my daily driver until 2021. It still works great, although it's starting to feel a little slow. It's a Swiss Army Knife in how many things it can do (like becoming an impromptu Wifi Ethernet access point with the right set of adapters) which is why I still carry it with my new phone when I travel.
It also takes great pictures, although it's been largely superseded by newer high-end phones.
