The Google Pixel 2 vs. the original Pixel: What’s changed?

by John_A

The new Pixel phones are here and, while they don’t give us much more to look at compared to last year’s models, it’s the inside that really counts. This year’s 5-inch Pixel gives us a better camera and more powerful processor compared to the original, but we’ve also lost the headphone jack. What else has changed? Give the specs below a peep, and stay tuned as we put Google’s new handset through its paces soon.
