Decided to switch over since I miss owning a 5inch phone and the battery life on the 6P is not as good as it used to be. First thing I like to say is that there is no night-and-day difference between these two phones. The Pixel 2 has better functionality in most cases, but the Nexus 6P still hold up really well as is not outdated whatsoever. Last week, the 6P had its Android Oreo over-the-air software update. Well read on if you're on the fence.
*Skipped out on Pixel 1 since it didn't have front facing speakers
Pixel 2 wins this hands down, even better than the 6P when I got it out of the box at launch. Can last up to 1.5 to 2 days if you're conservative.
Typical 8 hour work day +1 hour commute (half hour to and from work) + 30min lunch break
During commute non stop music. 80% volume
Lunch 20-25mins on Youtube
15min breaks: some light mobile gaming, Two 2-3 minute phone calls
Check e-mail text and notifications throughout the day
Doing all of this. Starting from 100%, dropped down to 48% by the end of the day
Super fast charging with included charger. Very similar to the Moto X Pure, but the batter life is way longer. Takes about an hour and a half to fully charge your phone from 10%
Better stabilization/auto focus
The auto focus on the 6P is horrible, even if you tap on the screen it will not focus accurately.
On the Pixel 2 it auto focuses on an object for you without having to touch the screen and does a decent job at it too.
6P does a better job at capturing true real life colors especially in scenery. Pixel 2 makes everything more vibrant and seems like it auto photo-shops everything (which can be a good or bad thing depending on your preference).
Pixel 2 has way better front facing camera. Excellent for selfies as it auto blurs the background and do automatic lighting touch ups on your face.
Video works way better as there's less camera shake when playing back
Did a blind camera test with phones I have available**, borrowed from friends/family and the Pixel 2 had better quality picture hands down.
**Nexus 6p, iphone7, Galaxy 7 Edge, Note 4, Moto x pure, Amazon Fire Phone. Note that I don't have access to all high end phones such as iphone X, Note 8, HTC U11, LGV30 along others.
--Finger Print Sensor
Both very similar. Didn't notice a difference.
Was able to detect 100% of the time with dry/clean fingers
--Visual aesthetic, build quality
Don't know about some people, but I love the camera visor hump on the 6P. Makes it look very futuristic and stands out from other phones. The Pixel 2 on the other hand, looks very generic and plain.
The Pixel 2 does not have a streamline look like iphone x or Galaxy edge series as the screen not edge-to-edge. It has large bezels on the top and bottom which i don't really mind since I'm not accustomed to bezel-less screens, but i can see how some people are if they're used to it. Having bezels does have it's advantages as it's great for mobile games where you have to hold your phone horizontally
Pixel 2 is also very lightweight. Even lighter than the Nexus 5 and feels very fragile. This is the only phone i bought a case for a week after purchase.
Pixel 2 is dust and water resistant. Great for traveling, if you're an extrovert, or an adventurer with no arrows to the knee
I don't like the side buttons. For the 6P the power button has this cross hatch metal texture design to it making it easily distinguishable from the volume rocker. For the Pixel 2, all the buttons feels the same, so it takes some time to get a feel for it
Personal preference, but i like the 5inch display rather than the 6inch (thus one of my main reason for switching). 6inch is better for viewing cinematic movies/videos, but I already own a laptop and tablet and those tend to do a better job. I find a 5inch phone more portable and less finger travel when using
Android Oreo is very smooth. You will not notice a difference from the 6P with Android Oreo unless you compare them side by side. Pixel 2 is slightly faster, but only by milliseconds. Most of it probably have to do with finger travel from larger screen
--Front facing speakers
At first i assumed it would be muffled compared to the 6P due to the water and dust resistance, but it's surprisingly better than the 6P at higher volumes. At around 80% + volume there's much less distortion on the Pixel 2. Not to say that the 6P is bad, but once you hear the sound quality at near max volume from the Pixel 2 it's hard to go back.
No headphone jack on the Pixel 2. So you have to resort to bluetooth for personalized music.
This can be troublesome if you are an audiophile especially if you already own a expensive wired headset
But if you are a true audiophile, and can afford it, i would get a dedicated mp3 player. Namely the Sony Walkmen brand
It does come with a USB-C to 3.5mm cable in box
New android software first on Pixel 2 for 3 years instead of 2.
6P still have updates as mentioned before it updated to Andriod 8.0 last week
I also own the Nexus 5 (phone released in 2013) and it still receives security updates from Google, but it stopped getting major software updates (stopped at Android 6.0.1) probably due to hardware limitations.
Pixel 2 like other Google phones has no bloatware like ones you see on Samsung phones as is pure android
At first i thought it was a throw away feature, but I find it quite useful overtime
In the beginning i just used it to set alarms, but after a while starting using it for the Android Assistant.
It's very similar to pressing on the google search bar, but much faster.
Note that if your phone is off and you use the squeeze feature,you are automatically prompted to the lock screen. Exception being you have no passcode, you have trusted locations or trusted bluetooth devices active. Trusted faces also work, but it takes a second extra for it to boot up.
When the phone is on, it's very intuitive, as it's easier to ask the assistant anything from directions and reminders on the fly. You can also squeeze to silence phone calls instead of pressing the volume rocker if you see a spam or phone number of a person you don't' have to talk to at the moment
Google lens is similar to Amazon Firefly (on the Amazon phone that no one uses?). It's better at picking up words, number and text than objects
-Always on Display/ "Now Playing"
Out of the box, the Pixel 2 has an always on display showing the time/date, and app icon notification.
You can go to settings and turn this off if you want to save battery life. If you have it off, you can easily access it by double tapping on the screen.
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
Pixel 2 has a "Now Playing" feature which auto detects music playing in the background with is great as you don't have to ask google assistant for it or use a 3rd party app like Sound Hound. Song has to play in background for 10-20secs in most cases before it's able to display on your phone depending on how loud, clear and popular the song is.
Easy to transfer data use included adapter. If you own an android phone, all apps will transfer over, you just need to re-enter some passwords if it's not connected directly to your google account.
You can also transfer iphone data over but it's only contacts, and photos
----Overall a good upgrade if you like the enhanced features. 6P is still a good phone and is not outdated in terms of software and hardware. If you find the upgraded/new features on the Pixel 2 enticing then it's a good upgrade.
If you have any questions, please put in the comments.
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. An added plus of using the adapter is I no longer have to deal with certain headphone plugs not fitting due to my case not providing a big enough opening.
I love that the speakers both face the front.I had adapted a way of holding other phones in a way so that my hand cupped the sound and directed it to my face. No longer needed.
Otherwise, the phone is pretty standard as far as premium phones look. You'll likely use a case anyway this isn't really an issue.
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.
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. Also, I haven't noticed it responding to others saying OK Google like my previous phone did, but I wasn't on Oreo yet so that could also be why. (but I can't rule out better microphone hardware that might be able to provide better signal to noise ratio)
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.
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. I could likely go 2 days of light use or 1 day of heavy (watching videos) use.
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. As a plus, the time, date, temperature, and icons of notification types are able to be displayed on the phone at all times. This is awesome as it makes the phone a true nightstand clock replacement and you can even tell if you missed a text without touching your phone.
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.
I've been hearing talk of how the pixel 2 still isn't fully complete as in they're missing features, but I can't imagine how necessary they are. Definitely the best phone I've owned/played around with.
The processor is snappy fast, Oreo operating system smooth, battery life amazing, sometimes I go 2 days on one charge. Smart placement of finger scanner, great forward facing speakers that sound better than U11, waterproof.
Not too big, doesn't slip unlike it's brother HTC U11.
Although I had a SIM card to use, it offered a cardless eSIM to be downloaded to the phone. Google making it one step easier to turn on the phone and go. 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. Thee phablet craze has passed for me. This phone isn't small by any means, it's just not approaching a tablet. The snappiness to absolutely every action including camera load speed, smoothness of transitions, instant fingerprint sensor, and seamless browsing. Wait time is virtually zero in every regard. I recommend this as a solid upgrade from a 6p if you're looking for the newest hardware/software combo.
