This is the new Google Pixel phone.This may be considered as the continuation of Nexus showing the best Android experience.Pixel is one of the phone you must use to understand its taste.Pixel is the first phone made entirely by Google , top to bottom.
Pixel may not be stylish or so , but believe me , this phone is a stunner. Its the first Pixel phone , not the Nexus phone because they are not putting any other manufacturer logo on it this time.Previously we had Nexus by companies like LG , HTC , Huawei , Samsung and some others too.This is the Pixel phone from Google. Its completely designed by google and that is really good , but you guys should know , its getting HTC to build it. If you are a HTC user , you may find a HTC touch in the Pixel phone. There have been rumors that , this was the new HTC design they have been working on before the entry of Pixel.
Pixel run Android 7.1 and its body is almost metal all around , a classy look and it has a wedge shape(thick at top). And it do have good placement and travel for side buttons.This may not be worlds thinnest phone , but still its kinda slim , 8mm thick. The upper half of the back panel is glass and this can pretty much improve the signal strength and can be better with bluetooth and wifi. There is no wireless charging . if you guys are looking for style , you may take a look at the blue variant .
What Went Wrong ?
One of the down point of google pixel is its sound , the speakers are not up to the mark. Google Pixel is not loud and the speakers are downward facing and can easily get blocked by one finger by accident. Other disadvantages are that, Pixel failed to provide water resistance and storage expansion.
But what pixel is from inside is really awesome.Check out the awesome specs :

Now I can assure you that , Pixel is the smoothest android phone you can get right now. Android 7.1 is really buttery and the battery life is outstanding. You may be amazed by the performance if this amazing piece of technology. Pixel is more of optimised android experience and is able to handle every day use plus heavy multitasking and gaming too. Pixel is clean , there is hardly a few pre-installed apps and the once you get can be uninstalled. This is a great performer .And what’s new is the Google assistant , its not that new as some features like voice controls were available in the previous versions of android. On Pixel , its more accessible.
