That was the main goal of the recent Google event where chief executive officer Sundar Pichai once again reiterated Google AI's first approach to all development streams.

Is it wrong that all we want is for existing Chromebooks to get the Play Store?

You can also see how some of the smart video stabilization features Google has added work in practice, turning juddery and shaky clips into something far smoother and easier on the eye. Speakers and headphones will need to be connected to the Pixel phones via Bluetooth or the included USB-C adapter.

Another reason to buy Google Pixel 2 XL is that it's a real value for money. With the two phones, there's no doubt that Google is after the two leaders in the industry - Samsung and Apple. For example, If a user takes picture of a dog it will tell you what kind of dog it is, isn't it special?

Starting at a not cheap US$999, the Chromebook's camera tops out at 720p (lol) and it also packs two USB Type C ports and an earphone jack. You can preorder one starting with 27 October and the launch date is on November 3.

It appears Google has implemented a strategy similar to that around phones, in order for it to drive the usage of voice share. Billboards advertising the event instructed consumers to "Ask more of your phone" with the date of "Oct 4".

Instead of competing on hardware, Google has differentiated its products through software and services. However, this time Google are forefront of hardware production.

The Google Home Max does basically the same thing, but automatically. Siri has a long way to go before it can catch up with Google Assistant. The new wireless Pixel Buds headphones include a button that lets you activate the assistant. Still, other manufacturers such as Samsung have managed to keep the headphone jack while including the features noted above.

The Google Pixel 2 not only takes the DxOMark Mobile scoring crown with a stunning Overall score of 98, but its video performance improves by 5 points over the original Pixel, putting it at 96 and at the top of our video ranking. The price difference in both 64GB and 128GB variant is more than 12 grands; this is the amount if you want the larger pixel with a 0better display and everything else is pretty same. That said, most users will probably be content with it.

Both Pixel smartphones run on Android 8.0 Oreo and will be getting OS, security updates from Google for next three years.
