As the issues begin to mount, one has to wonder, are the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL even worth bothering with anymore? Now, it has come to light that the device's camera isn't playing nice when it comes to surroundings with LED lights on.

The Pixel 2 XL comes with Active Edge feature with which you can interact with the smartphone by squeezing it.

On the other hand, the Google Pixel 2 has been available in India since November 2.

There's, however, no official word on whether or not the Mountain View, California-based company is taking the problem on priority, and when a fix will be rolled out.

To book the phones via an e-commerce store, you can head over to Flipkart, which is selling the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL exclusively. The price in India for Google Pixel 2 XL starts at Rs 73,000 for the 64GB version, while the Pixel 2 XL 128GB version is priced at Rs 82,000. Flipkart's trying to make things a bit easier on your wallet by offering an exchange deal worth up to Rs 20000 and Rs 8000 as cashback on EMI transactions using an HDFC Bank credit card. During pre-orders, Reliance Jio had announced its offers on the pre-orders of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Axis Bank Buzz credit card holders will get an extra five percent discount as well.

Google has introduced several launch offers for consumers planning to buy Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

The Pixel 2 features a 5-inch Cinematic 127-mm full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display, while the Pixel 2 XL features a 6-inch QHD+ (2880 x 1440) P-OLED at 538ppi with 18:9 ratio. The display is protected with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Both the phones house a 12.2-megapixel rear camera with f/1.8 aperture and optical and electronic image stabilisation. Google's second-generation flagship packs 4GB RAM and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor running Android Oreo 8.0 out of the box. The front facing 8-megapixel camera has an aperture of f/2.4.
