Welcome to the new Pixel phone era! Pixel and Pixel XL have been unveiled by Google is what is its post-Nexus phones.
The 5-inch Pixel and 5.5-inch Pixel XL are officially called “Pixel, a phone by Google” and have a “G” on the back, signifying how Google designed the phones on its own instead of tweaking another company’s product into a Nexus. Google is now the one picking components, providing support and promoting the phones.
Unlike last year’s mid-range Nexus 5X and premium Nexus 6P, the Pixel phones are both top-shelf models. Google wants you to think of them as rivals to the most prestigious models out there, Apple’s iPhones and Samsung Galaxy models.
Pixel comes as a surprise to no one. In addition to being shiny, the phone includes Google Assistant. Google claims the camera is the best ever. As you might expect from Google, its camera incorporates a lot more computational photography than most, such as a burst-shooting best-shot chooser (Smart Burst); HDR+, which works in any light and uses multiple short exposures for better exposures and has “zero” shutter lag and fast processing; and better-than-average digital stabilization.
Other important features are unlimited Google Photos storage, Google Duo, the company’s video calling app announced at Google I/O, Up to 7 hours of battery life on 15 minutes of charging, easy migration from iPhone and the price can start at $649.
The Pixel Phone by Google has the highest rated smartphone camera ever. Todrick Hall considers the phone to be the perfect piece. Watch Todrick Hall create his unique style thanks to Google Assistant on his #Pixel.
Shoppers always want a fresh new top-of-the-line smartphone for the holiday season. This year they basically have few phones to choose from. One of the best bet to try is Google’s new Pixel and Pixel XL. These are a very tough competition to iPhone 7 Plus.
A lot has been said about the design of the Pixel phones. Most of it not good. The visuals are pretty pedestrian. There’s nothing too eye-catching or impressive about either handset. The only real point of interest is the two-tone paneling work on the back of the device. Beyond this it just looks like a phone. Not a bad-looking phone, but nothing particularly exciting either. In design, the Pixel phone doesn’t have the majesty of Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge.
Its timing couldn’t be more fortunate with Samsung in the midst of an explosive crisis. Now shoppers have a worthy iPhone alternative.
Now, take this into account, it is the first phone to have the search giant’s new, thoroughly robust voice-and-search service, called Google Assistant, built in. It’s the most natural voice assistant around. This will make the Pixel phone one of the best Android phones right now.
The Pixel camera is fast, images are in focus, and colors look vibrant. Close-up shots appear especially sharp and refined. Landscape scenes retain an impressive amount of detail and depth, even with objects that are far away. The front-facing camera is excellent, too. It has a wide enough lens to fit a lot of content in each frame, and it softened skin tones enough to look appealing without appearing too airbrushed.
The camera can shoot 4K video, and though it doesn’t have optical image stabilization, it uses a combination of the gyroscope and software to steady your videos all the same. This feature works well, and it’s useful when you’re moving while recording footage.
Google Pixel phone is in deed a very good phone by Google. Pixel and Pixel XL are Google’s attempt to define itself as a hardware manufacturer worthy of comparison not just to Apple’s iPhone, but the very products its Android operating system has allowed to flourish over the past eight years.
Though the Pixel phone is not yet the Android king. The new smartphone succeeds Google’s Nexus line of devices and is now 100% Google. So it will only get better in the months and years coming ahead.
The Pixel phone has a 5 in full HD AMOLED screen on the front, which makes it one of the smaller premium smartphones available. The display is crisp and vibrant, with deep blacks and excellent viewing angles. It’s relatively easy to read in direct sunlight too, making it one of the best displays fitted to a smartphone, although not quite as good as Samsung’s best.
