Google Pixel 2's unlimited hi-res photo storage only lasts to 2020

Google Pixel 2's unlimited hi-res photo storage only lasts to 2020

The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL were announced last week and while the specifications were in line with most top-end handsets released this year, it was all about the firm flexing its software muscle.

They run Android 8.0 Oreo. You can see the complete list of today's Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.

Not wanting to be outdone, T-Mobile is offering a pretty sweet deal if you transfer service and bring your phone over to its network. T-Mobile US will give a $325 instant cash rebate in the form of a prepaid Mastercard gift card.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are now available for pre-order, with shipments expected to arrive within six to seven weeks.

However, the offer can be availed only by the original owner of the phone, any devices purchased from third-party sellers are not eligible. While some people think DxO Mark isn't a good judge of camera performance, at least we all can agree that the new Pixel smartphones take impressive pictures. All they have to do is add a line of either T-Mobile ONE or Simple Choice Unlimited.

In audio, Google's decision to remove the audio jack not only made physical space for other features to be included in the phone, but also opened up a new market to offer its new Pixel Buds earphones. Of course, the vast majority of this is speculation, and Google has made no confirmation of what it might be selling at its short-lived stores. It's listed with a $649 price tag or under 24 months of installment with Google Store Financing for only $27.04 per month.

In this action-packed scenario, it will be interesting to see who among the two - Verizon or T-Mobile US - wins the battle with the maximum number of subscribers and more revenues. Here is how the two smartphone giants compare in some important points. Over the years it has been remarkably consistent.
