While watching the Apple event online with my co-workers this summer, I saw our team become increasingly underwhelmed by lackluster reveals.

The gear was fine; the iPhone X looked cool; but nothing seemed particularly special about any of it.

We became increasingly excited with each reveal.

More, we’d all declare how much we wanted whatever was streaming on our screens in a frenzy of virtual oohs and aahs.

The day before the Apple event there was a buzz surrounding TNW’s editorial staff – many of us expressed that we couldn’t wait to see what the Cupertino company was going to reveal.

Yet, on October 3rd – the day before the Google event – it was almost like business as usual.

Further down the page you'll find everything you need to help give you an informed view on the Google Pixel 2 and whether it's worth your hard earned cash.

With reviews from Daily Express, The Verge, Tech Radar, Wired and plenty more websites you should have everything you need to help you make a decision on whether or not to buy the Google Pixel 2.

Before that though, here is a quick run down of all the key info you need to know about Google's latest Smartphone

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE PIXEL 2 AND PIXEL 2 XL?

The larger Pixel 2 XL gets a slightly updated design with reduced bezels and an edge-to-edge 6-inch QHD+ OLED screen.

These include a faster Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, water resistant design and an always-on display.

ANTONIO VILLAS-BOAS: So, the iPhone X and the Google Pixel 2 both are amazing phones.

Design —To be perfectly honest, the iPhone X just looks so much better than the Google Pixel 2.

Basically, that's because there are fewer Apple devices that developers need to think about.

So, Android developers have to think about what version of Android that the Android users are using on their phones.

Meanwhile, in "Apple land," Only 10% of users are on an operating system that's 2 years or older.

For app developers having a good idea at least of what operating system your users are gonna use really helps.

Google isn't just hinting at the Google Pixel 4 ahead of its expected October launch, it's showing what it'll look like in a surprising new reveal.

It's coming four months earlier than anticipated and shows the back of the Android phone, complete with a square-shaped camera.

"Well, since there seems to be some interest, here you go!

Wait 'til you see what it can do," teases Google in its Twitter under the handle @madebygoogle.

The Elgato Eve product line already has a number of smart home sensors designed to work with Apple's HomeKit smart home platform.

As of Wednesday, Elgato Systems will focus exclusively on its HomeKit-centric smart home line and will rebrand as Eve Systems.

Before developing smart home products, Elgato first became known for video game accessories.

That branch of the company, and the Elgato name, have been sold to Corsair -- another manufacturer of gaming peripherals.

You might already have a couple of products in the Elgato Eve product line.

Eve Room measures temperature and humidity.

We might have caught our first glimpse at the Google Pixel 4 out in the wild, after a phone looking very similar to the one Google teased last week was spotted being used in London.

An image of the phone was shared by 9to5Google – you can see the square rear camera array on the back and... that's about it.

The snap doesn't really tell us anything new about Google's upcoming handset.

The phone does appear to have a large front-facing bezel at the top of the display, the anonymous tipster who took the phone noted, which we think is going to be housing a dual-lens camera.

And the handset looks as if it's wrapped up in one of those official Google Pixel fabric cases that we've seen appear with previous Pixel launches as well.

We're bracing ourselves for a host of Pixel 4 leaks between now and October, which is the month when we're expecting the next Google flagship to be officially announced.

Detroit-based Floyd has announced a $5.6 million Series A funding round that will let the company expand its operations and release new products.

The company has been in Detroit for the last five years and they’re dedicated to creating better furniture and a better experience around furniture.

This injection of cash should go a long way in helping that mission.

Floyd launched its first Kickstarter campaign in 2014 and another in 2015.

The first project, a novel but straightforward table leg, racked up $256k from 1,395 backers while the second received $123k in pledges.

A new side table based on the Floyd Table is on tap for 2018 release thanks to the recent round of funding.

If you've been keeping your head when others all about you have been losing theirs, biding your time for the absolutely perfect mobile phone deal for you, then it's finally time to cash in those chips.

All of the biggest phone networks and retailers have announced their Cyber Monday discounts, and we're not expecting any more to come.

It means that you can finally take the plunge and buy your new smartphone without fearing that it will suddenly drop in price the minute after you've hit 'buy now'.

On the contrary, if you don't snap up the best iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, Google Pixel 2, Sony Xperia and SIM only prices now, then don't expect them to be there when you wake up on Tuesday morning.

On the below list of mobile phone deals, you'll see some incredible tariffs that we're told aren't going to be available when Cyber Monday comes to a close.

Google Pixel Buds: Ryan has written up a full review of the new ear buds and will tell his thoughts on today’s show.

In particular, the unique feature of translate, could be something that truly sets them apart from their competitors.

But, do they sound good?

Amazon Key Hacked: Despite the convenience factor, there still seems to be overwhelming hesitation for general adoption of something like the Amazon Key home delivery system.

Now, with news that there is a small, but real, chance the Cloud system could be hacked, it appears that widespread use may not be happening any time soon.

If the Google Pixel 2 has bugs as its main pain point, the iPhone X possibly has Face ID as its counterpart.

Drowning out almost all other discussions about the iPhone X’s strengths and flaws, the industry seems to be largely interested in seeing whether Face ID is as secure as Apple touts it to be.

According to Vietnamese security outfit Bkav, is absolutely isn’t.

It has, in fact, raised the alarm level after successfully demonstrating how Face ID was instantly fooled by a new type of mask it dubbed the “artificial twin”.

Using a mask to trick Face ID is nothing new.

Since Apple’s technology uses 3D and infrared sensors, flat pictures and selfies on phones will never work.

Samsung today is announcing an updated version of its Wifi product line.

The company partnered with Palo Alto-based Plume Design to provide software that powers the devices.

According to Samsung, Plume’s platform uses artificial intelligence to allocate bandwidth across connected devices while delivering the best possible wifi coverage throughout a home.

Plus, by using Plume, Samsung gets to say its Wifi system uses AI, which is a big marketing win.

The system also includes a SmartThings Hub like the previous generation allowing owners to build a connected IoT home without having to buy another box.

“Integrating our adaptive home Wi-Fi technology and a rich set of consumer features into SmartThings’ large, open ecosystem truly elevates the smart home experience,” said Fahri Diner, co-founder and CEO, Plume, said in a released statement.

Just as we finally started to accept the new shockingly high prices of Google Pixel 3 deals, they've now come crashing down in drastic fashion, knocking hundreds off the overall cost of contracts.

But of all the cut prices, none can even come to close to this new exclusive offer.

Thanks to the code TECHPIX3 just for TechRadar readers, you can drop the upfront cost of this Google Pixel 3 down to just £50.

But here's where it really shines...you only have to pay £20 a month!

That makes this offer cheaper than a lot of Google Pixel 3a deals (Google's new budget 3 edition) and a good few hundred pounds cheaper than most Pixel 3 offers.

In other words, no Google offers can touch this for pure affordability.

As Apple parades around Silicon valley with its new iPhone X and Samsung promises the newest Galaxy Note won't explode, Google may have released the best smartphone of 2017.

Too often people find themselves crawling to 5pm with a battery percentage in the 20s.

The worst part is spending the rest of day (or at least until you find a charger) operating the phone like someone from 2006.

Each day, we'd prepare for the commute home and discover the device still had between 60% and 70%.

Google has been endlessly bragging about the camera in the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

Using the camera is a treat, the definition and quality you get from a standard photo is unbelievable.

Google just launched the Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL, and now it’s time to start looking towards the anticipated release of the Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.

In that vein, we have our first look at reputable renders of the Google Pixel 4 from PriceBaba supplied by dependable leaker @OnLeaks.

These renders are based on early prototypes for the device, not the final version.

As such, take these renders with a massive grain of salt.

Curiously, the renders look very much like renders of the upcoming crop of 2019 iPhones.

The square camera bump on the rear is a dead ringer for what we expect to see on the iPhone 11 (or iPhone XI, depending on how Apple decides to go).

In a surprising move, Google just confirmed the Google Pixel 4 design months ahead of its expected launch.

After a deluge of leaks related to the design of the Pixel 4, it seems Google decided to get ahead of the game and just release a photo of the device.

Google paired the photo with a tongue-in-cheek statement of “since there seems to be some interest…”

The rumors and leaks surrounding the Pixel 4 barely started when Google tweeted out a photo of the handset.

The search giant didn’t share any additional information but learning bits and pieces about the phone from code teardowns.

So with what we do know, we decided to ask you: What do you think of Google’s upcoming Pixel 4?

Interestingly, out of the nearly 20,000 people who voted in this week’s poll on the website, Twitter, and YouTube, the votes were almost equally split between the three options.

Digging through the comments, it’s pretty clear that most are tired of Google releasing mediocre phones with flagship prices.

Some have a small amount of hope that the company has learned from the past and will include an ample amount of RAM and doesn’t suffer from software bugs when launched.
