There are many smartphones on the market today, but the Google Pixel 2 might be the most underrated one. It is less expensive than other top smartphones today, but that is only the tip of the iceberg.

Google Pixel 2 was released in October 2017. It was the sequel to the original Google Pixel phone that was released in 2013. By the end of 2017, Google had sold nearly 4 million Pixel 2 phones with more sales expected to continue into 2018.

There are many features that make the Pixel 2 stand out. It has one of the best smartphone cameras on the market. The phone makes good use of that camera by allowing unlimited smart storage of video footage. The Pixel 2 harnesses augmented reality so that users can add emojis to live scenes. It includes incredible technology like Google Lens and Google Assistant. The phone also has high-definition speakers and high-resolution displays so that users can best enjoy watching videos on it.

For years, Apple and Samsung have dominated the smartphone marketplace in the United States. Before the release of the Pixel 2, only 1 percent of Americans owned a Google phone. The Pixel 2 is sure to change that predicament. Over the 2017 Christmas holiday weekend, Pixel 2 activations surpassed the iPhone. Part of the reason behind this is probably because of the expensive price tag for an iPhone X.

There is no doubt that more consumers are considering Google for their next phone because of the amazing capabilities of the Pixel 2. Here are 12 reasons why the Google Pixel 2 might be the best phone of the year.
