The Google Pixel and the Google Pixel XL have received an astonishing amount of positive reviews for aspects like camera, user experience, and overall form factor of the device.
Even though it may be considerably more expensive than the Google phone is available up until now, there has been tremendous interest amongst buyers in the first few days of its availability. Google seems to be justifying the pricetag of the device – apart from offering excellent features – by adopting a totally new hardware strategy. The strategy is largely based upon providing high-end specifications, interest free financing, and providing excellent after sales support.
The latter two are specifically catered towards the customers in the United States, but future Pixel phones are expected to go global depending on the success of the same in Google’s home ground. As part of the strategy, Google has tied up with 250 walk in stores throughout the country. They gave Google the ability to provide same-day repairs. In the event of more complex issues like cracking a screen, Google Pixel and Pixel XL owners should visit the uBreakiFix in order to get the repairs done on the same day.
The Pixel line-up is easily twice as more expensive than the Nexus line-up of the past. However, buyers do get a lot of high-end features for the price. It starts with the quite amazing full HD resolution on the 5-inch Pixel or the QHD resolution on the larger5.5-inch Pixel XL. Both phones are splash and dust resistant to a certain extent. The multi-colored nature of the back takes a while to get used to, but customers certainly will not be a fan of the thick bezels on the device. The black color option on the Google Pixel and Pixel XL certainly does a great job of hiding those bezels.
Google claimed that the smartphone has one of the best cameras around and they certainly seem to have stayed true to their word. The 12.3-megapixel camera on the Google Pixel and Pixel XL is up there with the best in the business like the Samsung Galaxy S7. It is even marginally better than the Apple iPhone 7 in various conditions. The use of a smaller aperture means that the Google Pixel and Pixel XL camera loses out to the Galaxy S7 in very low light conditions, but it is not a deal breaking element in real-world conditions.
