Google's Pixel 2 has been creating quite a buzz lately both for good and bad reasons. Let's keep the bad reasons aside for now. The features of the Pixel 2 are amazing and the good news is that most of these features can be easily emulated in your Android device.
The list of the Pixel 2 features is quite long. So, let's jump straight in.
The Google Pixel 2 camera is easily one of the best Android cameras ever produced. One of its most highlighted features is the auto HDR+ mode. It's particularly helpful if you aren’t proficient with manual camera modes.
Another cool feature of the Pixel 2 is the Name that Song feature. This native feature automatically recognizes songs and is available on just a tap on the lock screen.
Luckily for us, there are a couple of Android apps that provide a cool workaround. My first choice would be Shazam's Auto Shazam feature.
To have the app at your fingertips, just create a shortcut on the lock screen. So, the next time you hear a peppy number, all you have to do is swipe up on the lock screen and the app will take care of the rest.
Along with the above awesome features, the Google Pixel 2 also debuted with a brand new home screen layout. Not only did we get a new search bar position, the much popular Pill widget was also removed.
However, emulating this look on your Android home screen is all but easy. All it requires is a bit of your time. The most popular and handy launcher of the hour is Nova Launcher.
The detailed guide is available under this link and don't forget to read till the end as we have a nice little surprise for you there.
6. Live Wallpapers
It'd be hard to deny the fact that Live Wallpapers add vibrance to the home screen. The good people at XDA have extracted the Pixel 2 Live Wallpapers to an APK file.
