Google's new Pixel phone (and Pixel XL phone) has been launched and it getting some really good news in the midst of Apple botching their new updates and Samsung having their Note 7 phone exploding. Overall the Pixel has impressed people and it might have come at the perfect time as consumers are looking for alternatives. The Guardian takes a closer look at the Pixel, and while it might not be perfect, still gets top marks.
Google has finally launched an own-brand smartphone, the Pixel, to challenge Apple head on and provide a premium Android experience with the hardware tailored to the software by the people who actually make it..
The new smartphone succeeds Google’s Nexus line of devices and the company claims that the Pixel is now 100% Google, unlike the Nexus devices where Google provided the software and had some input into the devices but not total control. The Pixel phone joins the Pixel C Android tablet and Chromebook Pixel as Google’s first in-house devices.
