Google Pixel review

 

Google's Pixel is the polished superphone Android fans have waited 8 years for.

Google Pixel review

 

The Google Pixel remains our favorite phone, bar none -- unless you're looking for a bigger screen, in which case we'd recommend its big brother, the Pixel XL .

The Google Pixel has a fantastic camera, especially in low light. It's elegantly designed. Google Assistant takes one of the most natural, human approaches to answering your voice.

The phone's display is dim in outdoor sunlight and its camera's Lens Blur feature is shoddy. It's splash-resistant rather than dunkable, and it's pricey compared to previous Google Nexus devices.

If you're wary of Samsung or looking for a worthy iPhone alternative, the Google Pixel is the high-end Android phone to get.

Google Pixel vs Samsung Galaxy S7

 

It's hard to say what was the most important event of the year 2016 in smartphones, but Google's direct entry in the phone market with its Pixel lineup of phones that replaced the enthusiast-minded Nexus series was certainly one of them.

Premium eye-catching glass design ; Water resistance is a nice extra ; The fastest focusing smartphone camera ; More affordable ; Expandable storage ; Wireless charging

At the end of the day, it’s clear that the Google Pixel is a surprisingly solid phone, especially considering that it’s a first-generation product.

Google Pixel Review

 

One of the trickiest considerations for a company making smartphones is just how many options it should give shoppers. How many mid-rangers do you launch each year? How many flagships? What screen sizes do you hit, which phones get the best cameras –...

Unique design with a build that feels even better than the Pixel XL ; Snapdragon 821 + Nougat = silky-smooth performance ; Battery life isn't just good, but could even beat the Pixel XL ; Well-done camera makes it easy to capture impressive pics ;...

Display in need of a brightness boost ; A little on the thick side for a phone this size ; No waterproofing/dust resistance

It's been a rough few years for users who prefer smaller smartphones, and Google's last five-inch model was introduced all the way back in 2013, with the Nexus 5. But now with the Pixel, Google's really offering shoppers a no-compromise handset that's...

The Best Android Phones

 

The Google Pixel is the best Android phone for most people right now thanks to its excellent camera, fast and useful software, and great build quality.

3 Months Later: It’s Still the Google Pixel for Me

 

The few months in between the end of the holiday season and the end of February the following year are some of my favorites. Because new flagship phone releases almost always come to a stand still during these times, we often get to settle in to a...

Google Pixel review: the best Android experience around

 

During the #madebyGoogle event on October 4, Google presented two new Android smartphones, the Pixel and the Pixel XL, putting an official end to the Nexus line. This change of heart had one main reason, which has been repeated more than once by the...

Best Android experience ; Excellent camera ; Very good performance ; Unlimited cloud storage for high definition pictures ; Mini headphone jack ; Google Support service "Care by Google"

Unspectacular design ; Not water resistant ; No microSD card slot ; Not available worldwide

My thoughts on the Pixel? For Google’s first independent smartphone, they did a good job and it fits right in alongside other high contenders on the market. Apple has its iPhone, Google has its Pixel.

Google Pixel review

 

The Google Pixel phone introduces Android Nougat 7, and gives you a phone that's very fast and has a great camera. But design-wise it's an ugly duckling. It's available in a choice of 32GB or 128GB versions, but misses out on a microSD card. For a...

The Pixel is an excellent example of a good phone that's been over-priced and over-hyped. It's priced the same as an iPhone 7, yet if you put the two phones next to each other, the appearance of the iPhone's in a totally different league. The Pixel is...
