Google Pixel 2: Is the smaller second-gen Pixel an afterthought?

Google might have missed an opportunity to make a truly great, smaller flagship this year.

Last year’s 3,510mAh battery is replaced with a 3,000mAh battery, slimming the 7mm body down by one millimeter and 20 grams at the expense of battery life. Though some might like this decision, 7mm was already reasonably thin and battery life is as important as ever.
