Coming with an AMOLED screen display type, Google Pixel 2 has 5.0 inch display screen. It’s small and its one that lovers of small smartphones will love to handle. I’m not in that category though. Its screen resolution is the same as the Xtigi Discovery 1, 1080 x 1920 pixels. It has an excellent pixel density of 441 ppi. Absolutely fantastic are the texts, images and icons produced on the display. The smartphone has the IP67 certification that ensures it is dust and water resistant. Another awesome feature of its display is the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 that gives protection.
