The Google Pixel is here! For years, Google has given us all the right answers through its search engine, but left the mobile device industry to Nexus in the past – until now. This past October, Google introduced two mobile devices, the Pixel and Pixel XL. With these new smartphones, Google gives customers a chance to experience the latest in Google technology. With features like the new Google Assistant, its high-resolution camera and display, the Pixel and Pixel XL are definitely worth trying.
The Google Pixel XL comes with a 5.5 inch display equipped with a quad-HD panel for a richer vibrant colors. It also comes with a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4, protecting the thin 8.5 mm phone from damage.
One of the most talked about features on this smartphone is the camera. The Google Pixel’s camera works great, especially under low light. Both the Pixel and the Pixel XL have an aperture of f/2.0. The camera works fast and the images have sharp focus. The camera can capture far away objects and the pictures show detail and depth. 4K videos have also become a must for smartphones, and the Google Pixel didn’t disappoint including this feature.
Google integrated its search engine as deeply as possible, and now they provide their own AI known as: Google Assistant. Google Assistant is much like other AI like Siri, Alexa and Cortana in that it gives answers to your questions. However, Google Assistant goes beyond that. Assistant is very conversational, it’s job does not end when it gives you an answer but looks for more ways to help you. Along with being more conversational, it also stores past places and things you may have researched before for future use.
The battery powering the Google Pixel XL is a 3,450 mAh battery and for the Google Pixel it’s a 3,000 mAh battery. The smartphone has an Internet use time of up to 14 hours and audio playback that can be used up to 130 hours. When it comes to charging and how long the battery lasts, it all depends on what you use your smartphone for. The typical battery life for this phone on standby is up to 23 days, on talk time it is 32 hours and with internet use it is 14 hours. What is being used and the brightness matters when it comes to battery life. Charging this smartphone can take from 15 minutes up to 2 hours, which is still a very short time.
When it comes to cost, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL are on the pricier side. For the 32GB Pixel the price is $699 and the Pixel XL is at $799. As of now, the Pixel is only available with Verizon.
Overall, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL give an excellent experience. Google Pixel and Pixel XL have Google’s latest technology like Google Assistant and its high quality camera. Google, with this new creation, has made a bigger footprint in the hardware industry. This is just the beginning for Google.
