Google Offering Repair Service to Pixel Phones
Google has opened an online-based repair service for its Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL phones. Using the web site, owners of these devices can open a repair ticket based on their device's EMEI. The online form helps narrow down the problem and highlights potential repairs. Google will send a box so the device can be shipped to its U.S.-based repair facility for inspection and any fixes. Google says most repairs will take seven to 10 days. Costs for the various repairs were not provided.
Tech 21's latest accessory for the Google Pixel 2 XL is the Evo Check, a three-layer case that provides protection for drops up to three meters. We put this case to the test to see if it's worth your hard-earned dollars.
As the end of the year approaches so too does the season of giving. Holiday gifting lists are often filled with technology, but it isn't always easy to find that perfect item.
Google made the first public beta of Android P available today and it packs a ton of new and useful features. Android users will soon be able to take advantage of spiffy swiping gestures, screenshot editing tools, advanced battery life tools, improved do not disturb mode, a more powerful Google Assistant, and more.
The Google Pixel 2, made by HTC, is a compact smartphone that merges a metal design with a medium-sized screen. Other stand-out features include squeezable sides to call up the Google Assistant and a rapid fingerprint reader.
