The Google Pixel 2 has a new tiny power menu

The Google Pixel 2 has a new tiny power menu”

Google's new options for the Pixel 2 include birds-eye-views of impressive locations like Monument Valley, Mount Vesuvius and the coastline in Lagos in Nigeria, along with images of the Earth, the Moon and other celestial bodies viewed from space. As seen in the video, the new Pixel 2 tiny power menu appears on the top left side making it easy to access.

When asked, Google said that all the Pixel and Pixel XL customers don't need to worry about what happens to their photos and videos after a few years as the company would support this feature for them for life.

Screenshots in the Play Store listing show the app running on a Pixel 2, but the app description only vaguely specifies that the eSIM Manager is "only available on select Android devices". Google defines high-quality as images in resolution of up to 16-megapixel, and videos in full-HD (1080p). This had confused many original Pixel owners who had been promised past year that they would get unlimited photo/video storage in original resolution for life. But Google informed that after 2020, although the users of all the Pixel phones will enjoy unlimited original quality photo storage for lifetime, still while uploading, the images will get converted into high-quality. If you are extremely interested in unlimited native resolution photo/video backups for life - go buy the original Pixel/Pixel XL now.

We already showed you how to get the Pixel 2's new camera app and calendar widget on older Android devices, but there's another fresh feature from Google that you can port over to your current phone.

On the imaging front, both phones come with a 12MP dual-pixel sensor on the back with an aperture of f/1.8 and a 8MP shooter on the front for selfies with an aperture of f/2.4.
