Hey Prakhar
I just came across your article thought Facebook I just want to know that it will be good to buy it in India or should I ask someone​ to bring from outside India

Hi, Parth. The cost of Google Pixel 2 in India is higher than in other countries. So it’ll be better if you get it from the overseas if possible. Thanks for commenting 🙂
