The first Google Pixel and Pixel XL were not all that impressive as the smartphone fanatic community had hoped them to be. The fantastic camera didn’t quite makeup for the lackluster design and overall feel of the smartphone, along with the fact that Google wasn’t able to keep up with demand. We’re hoping the Google Pixel 2 will be another story. This is exactly why we’ve come up with a Google Pixel 2 wish list!
From the rumors going around so far, we have a couple of ideas of what might possibly be in the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. For one, there may be more than just two variants. Just as we’re expecting with the Apple iPhone 8 of 2017.
LG might even be their manufacturing partner this time around instead of HTC. I’m not sure if LG has had the best of luck when it comes to designing a head turning smartphone, but we’ll have to see. The Google Pixel and Pixel XL were released in October of last year, which leaves only a couple of months to go before the next generation may come out.

Water and Dust Resistance
It’s about time Google caught up to speed with other smartphone manufacturers like Apple and Samsung. It’s Google for goodness sake! Google should be the company leading in creating smartphones based on consumer demand and they failed on this aspect with their initial smartphone offering.
Most of us had to switch to Apple for a real smartphone experience after Samsung started making bombastic smartphones. Google wasn’t really able to impress the turncoat crowd and should focus on breaking that market. The only way they will be able to do that is by focusing on coming up with smartphones that meet the needs of today’s smartphone abusing generation.
Water and dust resistant smartphones are an utter necessary in today’s world. The Pixel and Pixel Xl were certified IP53, which is just splash resistance. Complete water resistance with an IP68 rating is what the Google Pixel 2 definitely needs to have. This Google Pixel 2 wish list would be incomplete without it.
Nobody is planning to take their Google Pixel 2 swimming with them, but in such an event, it brings great peace of mind knowing your smartphone will make it through the day.

Dual Sim Capability
Android smartphones have an edge over Apple iPhones mainly because the latter has never designed a dual-sim smartphone. It’s shocking why Apple doesn’t want to expand on its outreach by catering to that community, but Google needs to keep this in mind for the Pixel 2.
For many, a better and more premium design or faster processer may be on top of their Google Pixel 2 wish list. And that’s completely fine. But you have to remember that Google’s not going to come out with a phone and not update the processor or RAM. That’s a given and we saw that with the original Google Pixel and Pixel XL, too.
Most people nowadays do have two connections. One official and the other personal. This would mean no longer having to carry around two mobile phones just to maintain those numbers. An all-in-one device would be a lifesaver.
What’s more important in this Google Pixel 2 wish list is putting forth demands which Google may not be considering at all and what the smartphone community is really hoping for. Dual-Sim capability would be great and maybe even get me back from Apple to using Android again.
Better Audio Quality and Speakers
What made the Apple iPhone 7 Plus really great is the addition of dual, stereo speakers. This has been a blessing for iPhone users, especially due to the fact that Apple has always been targeted for having abysmal speaker quality. Now, Apple iPhones really compete with the best Samsung and LG have to offer. The Apple speakers are excellent and we’re hoping that Google incorporates something like this to their new Google Pixel 2.
This wouldn’t be something new for Google at all. In fact, the Google Nexus 6P had stereo, front-facing speakers. A ton of praise was garnered for this addition, but unfortunately, it was left out of the Google Pixel and Pixel XL.
We know people out there have better quality audio on their Google Pixel 2 wish list and it’s a part of ours, too. The Google Pixel 2 just won’t be a real fighter without this feature.

Control the Prices
Not many would like to say it, but Google is getting greedy. We saw this from the original Google Pixel and Pixel XL, which launched for $649 (32 GB) and $749 (128 GB), respectively. In easier terminology, they were far from affordable.
Even though Google managed to keep their prices below what Apple normal charges for the iPhones, but the Pixel wasn’t really able to deliver the same quality either. In this Google Pixel 2 wish list, we’re hoping that Google keeps the prices to an affordable level and allow people to actually consider buying a new smartphone.
Once you get customers hooked, there’s no turning back and prices need to be steady for that.
Sadly, it’s rumored quite a lot that Google will placing a premium price tag on the new Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2. It would be good for Google to not choose to go that way down the road, but who can stop them from trying to capture the Apple iPhone market the hard way?

From what we are expecting so far, the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel XL 2 are going to be some great smartphones. We’re expecting a more premium design and less bezels around the edges to make up from a premium price. Who knows? Maybe Google will give us a great smartphone for an unimaginable price. I’m saying unimaginable here in a good way and not in a riot-inciting way. Hope Google understands that and maybe even considers our Google Pixel 2 wish list.
