After utilizing the unique Pixel final 12 months, I used to be satisfied that Google was heading in an excellent route with its telephones (the boring industrial design apart).

This time, whereas Google fastened most of my design issues with the Pixel 2, the corporate appears to have dropped the ball on a number of events in terms of software program on the gadget.

Sure, I’m speaking in regards to the plethora of bugs which have plagued the smartphone ever because it was first launched.
