Google Pixelbook Go review: the price of simplicity

 

Google's cheapest Chromebook is still more expensive than the competition

Excellent keyboard ; Good battery life ; Simple, clean design

Expensive compared to competition ; No microSD storage expansion ; 16:9 screen can feel cramped

If you are in the market for a Chromebook and happen to find the Pixelbook Go on sale, definitely give it an extra look. But at full price, you have to ask yourself how much simplicity is worth to you.

Our Google Pixel review: Pure Android at its absolute best

 

With the help of an Assistant, Google's first in-house designed Pixel phone makes a kickass debut.

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

 

If you lust after the latest Android software and cool new features in the Google Pixel XL, but are turned off by large phones, the 5-inch Pixel is a superb alternative.

Compact build. Strong camera performance. Fast Snapdragon 821 processor. Latest Android 7.1 Nougat software. Promising Google Assistant functionality. 24/7 live help. Unlimited Google Photos storage.

No waterproofing, expandable storage, or wireless charging.

Conclusions Overall, the Google Pixel is one of a handful of reasonably sized Android phones that, because of its hardware, can compete with flagship phablets. That makes sense, because at $649-$749, it's priced right in line with those high-end...

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 .

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 vs Apple iPhone 7

 

What's the quintessential Android smartphone now? With Apple and iOS, it's easy, and while there will be a holdout or two shouting about the virtues of the iPhone SE until no one's left to listen, it's not at all controversial to award the iOS version...

Brighter screen ; More color/storage options ; Slimmer build ; Stereo speakers

Google and Apple really don't make it easy for us to identify one clearly superior phone, and maybe that's a good thing – there's so much on the line with these two handsets that the companies behind them have taken little to change, and it really...
