Google Pixel C

Stylish and versatile; the Google Pixel C is a well-crafted tablet with powerful hardware to aid with productivity. Design is kept simple with a minimalist theme and solid anodized aluminium chassis that oozes class when held. The Google Pixel C comes with a full-sized keyboard that connects using magnets and is charged wirelessly when the tablet is shut. Display on the tablet is a 10.2 inch LTPS LCD panel with 308 PPI and a brightness of 500 cd/m². Users will definitely enjoy the clarity and rich colors, which this display even provides in bright surroundings. The Android 6.0 Marshmallow device is equipped with an NVIDIA Tegra XI 64-bit processor, 3 GB of LPDDR4 RAM, a 256-core Maxwell GPU and either 32 or 64 GB of internal storage depending on the selected variant. Audio quality is decent with the stereo speaker setup and the Google Pixel C is equipped with a full array of sensors ranging from ambient light to proximity. Weighing just 0.517 kg minus the keyboard, the tablet will be a joy to carry around even despite the large screen size. Other features on the Google Pixel C are Bluetooth 4.1+HS, dual-band Wi-Fi connectivity, a 8 mega-pixel rear camera, a 2 mega-pixel front camera and the convenient USB Type-C port. Battery on the Google Pixel C is rated at 34.2 Wh.

Google Nexus 2016 preview
Source: Stuff TV English
Sci-fi? Space? Sedimentary rocks? If you’re Google, it’s the sea: say hello to Marlin and Sailfish. Set to be the next Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 handsets, these fishily named projects look the likely successors to Huawei and LG’s 2015 efforts on the Android powerhouse brand – and there’s already plenty to be excited about. Perhaps appropriately for two aquatically labelled smartphones, there have been leaks aplenty, offering up bucket loads of fresh bait – from shell suspicions to hardware rumours – to whet your appetite for the catch. So, tuna in: we’ve got all the details.

80% Google Pixel C review: Now with added Nougat
Source: Alphr English
The Google Pixel C is a mighty fine tablet, and one that absolutely nails the detachable hybrid design. This is a glorious piece of hardware that’s perfectly fit for purpose. It’s fast, the screen is exceptional, and the all-round design is one that, some day I’m sure, will be hailed as one of the all-time classics, alongside such products as the original iPhone, iMac and iPod. The fact that Google has pitched such a wonderful thing at the same level as the distinctly underwhelming Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet – which was a great tablet, but came bundled with a terrible keyboard – is a bonus. Fans of all things shiny, rejoice. Your addiction to desirable tech won’t cost you nearly £1,000 as it did with the iPad Pro, your wallet will only be lightened by £518.

The Google Pixel C is a fine tablet that nails the detachable hybrid design. It’s fast and the screen is exceptional. What holds it back isn’t value for money, but Android itself. Google’s OS works beautifully on phones but remains an awkward partner for tablets. Until it resolves that, tablets such as the Pixel C – fabulous though the hardware may be – will remain luxuries rather than must-haves.

Better, But Not There Yet
Source: AnandTech English
After taking in this new information, I suppose that the final question is whether or not my original verdict about the Pixel C still stands. That's a complicated question to answer, as the update from Google has addressed many, but not all of the issues I experienced with the original. I suppose it's worth doing a recap of what has and hasn't changed before deciding if this changes things for the Pixel C.

Ultimately, the Pixel C ends up being a strange mix of things that may have worked together in a much more cohesive manner had it shipped with Chrome OS like it was clearly intended to. Unfortunately, Android just doesn’t provide an acceptable tablet experience, and Google’s own applications are some of the biggest offenders.

90% The best Android tablet yet, but not the best for productivity
Source: PC Advisor English
As a standalone tablet, the Pixel C is superb. It’s better than the HTC-made Nexus 9 which was great but not exceptional. Which the 'C' most certainly is. Storage is a bit limited, but if you can live with 32GB it’s good value at £399. Paying an extra £119 for the keyboard is something we can’t see many buyers doing. If typing is a priority, you’d be better off spending your £518 on a decent ultraportable laptop as Android Marshmallow – good as it is – isn’t nearly as versatile as Windows. And while the keyboard is well designed, you’ll still prefer a full-size laptop keyboard. If you need to run Windows apps, the consider the Surface 3 which is slightly cheaper - even with the optional keyboard - but remember that there are even cheaper options such as the Asus Transformer T100HA.

There's a lot to like about the Pixel C. The hardware is beautifully designed and finished, the magnetic system is clever, and the performance is whippet-fast. It feels like it's ready and waiting for a version of Android that is similarly practical, and there the whole experience starts to slide. The potential is there, certainly. I'd just recommend waiting until the Pixel C lives up to it in practice before you open your wallet.

The Pixel C is priced starting at $499 for the 32 GB version, requiring an additional $100 to double the storage. The keyboard will also set you back an additional $150, which means that the overall package can be quite expensive, but depending on how much you value the Pixel hardware, you might find it worth the cost.

Beyond competing with other Android tablets, the Pixel C underscores that the Android tablet ecosystem still isn't competitive enough with iOS or Windows. For productivity, Android is far behind Windows 10 tablets, with its no-compromise Office applications, wide range of different keyboard form factors, and as many open windows as you want. For education and fun, the range of properly formatted, good-looking apps and games on iOS still far outstrips the list of Android apps that properly make use of large tablet real estate. Which is all to say: Even if Google fixes the software issues, the Pixel C still might not be the right tablet for you.

In our view, the Pixel C’s lukewarm reception has been due largely to Google’s failure to set proper expectations for this product. With its keyboard attached and Google Docs loaded up on the screen, the Pixel C looks like an iPad Pro/Surface Pro competitor – but it’s not. It lacks the multiscreen capabilities of the former and the full-PC operating system of the latter, which becomes apparent the moment you power it on.

100% Pixel C review: the best slate an Android fan can get
Source: T3 English
It's about time we got an Android tablet that properly challenges the iPad Air 2. The Galaxy Tab S2 and Xperia Z4 Tablet came close, but the Pixel C goes all the way. From its premium design, to its wonderful display and punchy processor, the Pixel C goes blow for blow with Apple's top tablet. It's not perfect - with a weighty heft, a battery which isn't as strong as we hoped, and the lack of software to really take advantage of the keyboard dock - but no device is. The Pixel C is, without doubt, the best Android tablet on the market and if you were considering buying a full size iPad, Google's just thrown a spanner in the works.

The Pixel C is the best Android tablet on the market. It's not cheap, but this is a top of the range tablet, and it fully justifies its iPad-matching price tag. If you're fed up with Apple, or simply want the best Android tablet around, then the Pixel C is the slate for you. You can feel that Google has been involved at every stage, with its simple fluidity flowing throughout the Pixel C experience. Android still has a shortcoming when it comes to tablet-optimised apps; add to that the general bulk of the Pixel C it's not quite as pick-up-and-play-friendly as the iPad range. It also doesn't have the breath of functionality to trouble the iPad Pro or Surface Pro 4, even with its keyboard dock, but the Pixel C is comfortably cheaper than both. What the Pixel C does offer is genuine competition at the top of the tablet market, and if you decide to splash the extra cash on the keyboard dock as well you'll have a very powerful machine at your fingertips.

The Pixel C, Google’s new ultra-premium Android tablet, has unfinished business. Yes, it’s chiseled from a sumptuous hunk of anodized aluminum and boasts a gorgeous, super-high-res display. And, yes, it’s packed with top-shelf silicon that delivers palpable performance dividends. It also runs a pure, unencumbered build of Android Marshmallow. That makes it bloatware-free, and the recipient of Google’s most timely OS and security updates. But Google is positioning the Pixel C as a halo device for Android’s productivity features—and in this mission, this productivity mission, the tablet falls short.

The Google Pixel C would be an excellent tablet just by itself, but add in the elegantly designed keyboard dock and it’s almost in a class of its own. The only things holding it back is Android’s immaturity as a tablet OS and the persistently poor state of Android tablet apps which makes the Pixel C less useful than it otherwise could be. Even so, the Pixel C is still the best Android tablet available.

The Pixel C is a powerful, long-lasting and beautifully built tablet, with a keyboard dock to match. For occasional typing, single task working and multimedia playback, it's an excellent device. At £399 (plus £119 for the keyboard) it’s only slightly more expensive than the Xperia Z4 Tablet, but is a much nicer device overall. If you're looking for something less expensive, but still very capable, then the Nexus 9 is still available at just £199. Whether Android is ready for laptop use is questionable, however, and the lack of multitasking definitely hurts it in comparison to Apple’s iPad Pro. Stock Android and stellar performance will be enough for many, and the possibility of official multi-window support in a later update might make this a more functional productivity device further down the line, but right now it's an expensive, albeit stunning, device that's no better value than the competition.

Pixel C deep-dive review: A terrific tablet that tries to be more
Source: Computerworld.com English
When we talk about whether the Pixel C is worth buying, we really have to talk about it as two separate products. As a high-end Android tablet, the Pixel C has what's easily the best overall user experience you'll find on such a device today. From the premium materials and striking design to the outstanding display and top-notch software -- not to mention the timely ongoing OS and security upgrades -- no other option even comes close. At $499 for 32GB or $599 for 64GB, it isn't cheap -- but it also isn't that unreasonable compared to other tablets in its class. And you really are getting an awful lot of bang for your buck, provided a top-of-the-line tablet is what you're after.

Google Pixel Review: Life after Nexus
Source: PC Perspective English
The Pixel is in many ways a welcome successor to the Nexus line, improving some of the shortcomings of those previous phones - though it is not perfect. The camera was often a sticking point with Nexus phones over the years (though the 6/6p had excellent sensors), and in this department the Pixel has been crowned the king of smartphone cameras since its release. The SoC, rather than being outdated at launch was the (then) top-of-the-line Snapdragon 821, which was this year replaced by the Snapdragon 835 found in the new Samsung Galaxy S8 handset (review upcoming!). The build quality is also quite high with the Pixel, about on par with the Nexus 6p from Huawei (or perhaps even higher, if you like iPhone-clone industrial design). It offers great performance, that glorious stock Android experience, great battery life, and feels like the premium device that the price tag indicates. But those are the positives.

The Pixel isn't a perfect device, but it captured me from the moment I took it out of the box. It's compact and has a great in-hand feel that makes me wonder why I didn't buy it over the Pixel XL in the first place. The new Pixel Launcher brings some functionality (though it's iPhone-inspired) to the Android experience that the Google Now Launcher found on the old Nexus-branded devices never had. It also adds greater notification control and what I call "smart notifications" for Android.

The Pixel has plenty going for it: it’s small, well built, speedy and has excellent cameras. It also supports Google’s Daydream VR headset and runs the plain version of Android 7 – complete with Google Assistant - and will get timely updates. But it isn’t waterproof, doesn’t have a microSD slot or stereo speakers and we’d have preferred a quad-HD screen for VR use at this price. If those downsides don’t bother you, and the OnePlus 3T is too large, then the Pixel is a fine choice and a great Android phone.

The Pixel follows the examples set by Apple and Samsung offering no microSD slot and a non-removable battery. Both the Apple and Samsung offerings have waterproofing, but this isn’t included in the Pixel. There is no wireless charging as found in Samsung Galaxies. Also there are no stereo speakers as found in the iPhone 7.

Mini Review: Google Pixel is a Top-Notch Android Phone
Source: Tom's Guide English
We think very highly of the Pixel XL, and it sounds like the Pixel is just as solid a choice if you prefer a 5-inch phone. The Pixel's camera is considered one of the most fantastic parts of the experience, with basic Google apps and services, along with a pure Android experience, thrown in. Be prepared to accept a lower resolution and less battery life if you opt for Google's less expensive Pixel, though.

Google Pixel Review

There were a few things we wish Google had addressed on this phone. One is the massive chin up front. That extra space could have been optimized for something useful. The second is the meager battery (2,770mAh) and 3rd is the absence of the microSD card slot but that’s already expected of Google. And of course, there’s the expensive price tag previously unheard of in many Google-inspired smartphones.

80% Google Pixel review: A small-screen Android phone that’s oh so close to perfection
Source: PC Advisor English
The Pixel has plenty going for it: it’s small, well built, speedy and has excellent cameras. It also supports Google’s Daydream VR headset and runs the plain version of Android 7 – complete with Google Assistant - and will get timely updates. But it isn’t waterproof, doesn’t have a microSD slot or stereo speakers and we’d have preferred a quad-HD screen for VR use at this price. If those downsides don’t bother you, and the OnePlus 3T is too large, then the Pixel is a fine choice and a great Android phone.

These phones are truly a great combination of hardware and software and as an Android fanboy myself, I love the Pixel and Pixel XL. I understand that the price of the phones is high but for someone who prefers having an Android phone over an iPhone, this is great value for money.

There are many non-technical factors to choosing your next Android smartphone including price, availability, branding and long term support.

Deep dive: A closer look at the Google Pixel's camera

I still would have liked OIS and features like face-detection focus (for instance for blind selfies or difficult-angle shots with the higher-quality rear shooter), but it’s nonetheless a great camera app that integrates well with the hardware, especially for the fast processing of the fancier features. Just the speed gains themselves over the N6P would have been worth it for initial release, though eventually it would be nice to regain at least the features the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 (time lapse) cameras had when they came out. Also, we are still waiting for some hinted-at pretty great features; hopefully they’ve not been canceled, but that was a long time ago.

The Google Pixel launched to some really raving reviews and overall has been positively acclaimed. What counts most is the desirability of the phone: how much do people really want it?

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 models. If software is of paramount importance to you, no other Android phone on the market can match the Pixel. If you're more interested in hardware, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is the phone to get.

This is the sixty thousand rupee question, and the short answer is that the Pixel is definitely the best Android has to offer. It shows what a Google phone can be, but I don't see myself spending 50K+ on this device. Why? Because the OnePlus 3 is almost as good, and given it's price, it's well worth the camera. Sure, the Pixel has a droolworthy camera, but that's the only area where it's substantially ahead of the OnePlus 3, and the latter's pricing makes up for it. In fact, this is exactly what the Nexus 5 had going for it. It was priced well, and though it lacked a flagship-class camera, everything else made up for it.

The Pixel is Google’s best effort yet at creating their own version of the iPhone. It’s something that simply wasn’t possible under the old Nexus brand. It’s not so much what the Pixel offers, so much as what it represents. Google is no longer watching Android from the sidelines as it’s bastardized by their hardware partners and skinned to look like anything but the OS they built. They know that the only way to truly have full control over the OS, is by having equal amount of control over that hardware it’s running on.

But if you were following along with the themes I presented above, I feel I more than adequately explained the reasons for the Pixel's $649 starting price. This is a well-made phone that performs its function as a mobile computer better than any Android phone currently available, and potentially better than any phone, period. Some of that is thanks to its portability, which despite the slight battery shortcomings is, to me, a huge boost to one-hand friendliness and therefore productivity, but much of it is due to a no-BS design that just makes it easier to use the phone.

I feel that after the pricing was leaked, many people expected that Google would pull a rabbit out of its hat with the Pixel. There had to be something more. The truth is, it's just a very good phone, and one that Google is now making the focus of its efforts. It is the first phone with a Google software skin, and the first phone developed by Google independent of the actual Android team (well, as independent as any manufacturer). That's quite interesting: Google has made clear that the Pixel team and the Android team have a "firewall." But that doesn't stop the Pixel team from working with all the various other groups and products inside Google, and that's how we've ended up with the first, and for now only, phone with Google Assistant.

The question is whether customers will embrace the Pixel message, or if they'll eye the wide world of cheaper, but still very good Android phones and decide that this Pixel is just a little too expensive.

Google Pixel Review: Hands-on with Google's own-brand iPhone 7 rival
Source: Digital Spy English
It's the confusing omissions that let it down. A QHD display and waterproof body would have kicked the Pixel on to another level. One that might have felt closer to that lofty price tag. As it is, on first use, it's a phone that we like but haven't fallen head over heels in love with. Still, fuss-free Android is always a major draw and we can't wait for a more in-depth play.

Pixel smartphone camera review: At the top
Source: DxOMark English
Simply put, the Pixel raises the bar for what is possible with a smartphone camera. Image quality continues to improve, and the increased use of HDR+ to render scenes that have previously been difficult for small sensors such as those in smartphones broadens what is possible with these ubiquitous devices. While we have reviewed other smartphone cameras that matched the Pixel’s numbers in a few categories, the Pixel is uniquely capable of capturing outstanding images under a wide variety of conditions, and is also among the best we have tested for video capture.

Google Pixel Phone is priced at £599 while the Pixel XL will set you back by £719 . Although it is more than you would expect for a demure set of specs as you see on the Pixel Phone, they are still at the top of the pecking order.

Sure, plenty of smartphones come with fingerprint readers these days. But the rear-mounted reader on other Google smartphones is one of the best we've used. The sensors on Google's Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P are quicker and more reliable than any other smartphone fingerprint reader we've tested, and they're rear-facing orientation makes them really easy to reach.

Google Pixel review: Hands-on with the first phone 'made by Google'
Source: PC Advisor English
The Google Pixel is certainly a nice phone will decent specs and an attractive design. It's also great to see Google making its own handsets, as much as we love the Nexus range. However, as nice as the Pixel is, not all of the specs warrant a price matching the iPhone 7, which means it's more expensive than the Samsung Galaxy S7. Not ideal, Google.

Google Pixel XL 2016

With the Nexus lineup seemingly discontinued, Google has unveiled its own flagship devices – the Google Pixel, and its larger sibling – the Google Pixel XL. They are nearly identical, except the Pixel XL has a bigger and sharper display, and a larger battery. Picking up the Pixel XL, one would immediately notice the device is encased seamlessly within a sturdy glass-aluminium body with smooth surfaces and easy-to-grip curved edges. The Pixel XL has a larger bezel in comparison to its newly released competitors, such as the Samsung S7 edge and the iPhone 7 Plus. This design seems counterintuitive considering that the Pixel XL has no physical home screen button, only an on-screen one, and all that space is just dead space. Another thing users have to keep in mind about the Pixel XL is that the device is not waterproof. The Pixel XL sports a Quad HD AMOLED 5.5 inch display screen with 534 ppi, which is housed behind a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4 panel. With the ability to produce 16.7 million colors at 100000:1 super contrast ratio, the Pixel XL is able to convey vivid cinematic displays, even in outdoor conditions. The Pixel XL also comes with a night light setting that tints the screen yellow to reduce eye strain from viewing a bright, bluish display at night. Underneath the hood, the Pixel XL is powered by Qualcomm’s brand new Snapdragon 821 chipset alongside 4 GB of RAM. The Pixel XL can also proudly claim to be among the first devices to run on the latest Android 7.1 Nougat out-of-the-box, probably making it the fastest Android smartphone to-date which is no surprise for a Google device. The Pixel XL is packed with a 3,400 mAh battery. Google claims that it can last 7 hours after just 15 minutes of charging. Designed to deliver users a Google-centric experience, the Pixel XL comes with all the services Google has to offer, including the latest Google Assistant, which is only exclusive to the Pixel. Activating the Google Assistant is straightforward. Simply press the home screen button or use the “OK Google” voice command. The Pixel XL comes in two variants, 32 GB and 128 GB of built-in storage, but this may not matter much because in both variants, the Pixel XL has unlimited photo and video cloud-storage via Google Photos. With the Google Keyboard – a GIF integrated keyboard, users can send GIFs in Google’s Messenger app, making the Pixel XL more enjoyable to use. The back of the phone features the Pixel Imprint, Google’s fingerprint scanner for added user security and services such as Android Pay. It works fast and accurate, and even has the additional perk of pulling down the notification menu by swiping the fingerprint scanner. Perched above the fingerprint scanner is a 12.3 MP camera with dual-LED flash. It is optimized for low light photography and has the ability to shoot 4K videos. While it does not feature optical image stabilization, it uses a combination of the gyroscope and software to steady the videos, and proves to do an amazing job recording videos on the go. Weather or not it will be able to be as good as the typical OIS is still a question yet to be answered. The Google Pixel XL is probably the device for anyone who is willing to spend more to get the best of what Google has to offer. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Source: PC Advisor English
While the Pixel XL is an attractive phone (if you can get used to the glass section) with decent combination of hardware and software, we can't help but feel a bit disappointed. It's very similar to the much cheaper Nexus 6P and OnePlus 3. You can get plenty of other Android phones for less which have extra features like waterproofing and expandable storage. Sorry Google, but things have gone a bit wrong here.

Also, as good as the Pixel is with its software, it cannot make Android app developers bring that level of polish present on iOS apps simply because app developers will want their apps running on as many devices as they can. And Pixel, with it’s high-end pricing will find it difficult to grow outside the enthusiast’s space- a space that sees the release of a new flagship every couple of months.

There are so many Android handsets to choose from with very little, in terms of specs and hardware, to actually separate them. A lot of people are loyal to brands – Apple and Samsung – while others prefer to go for value; value like the OnePlus 3 or BlackBerry DTEK50, for instance. The Pixel phones kind of sit outside of both these categories, as the brand and name itself, at least in the mobile space, is completely untested.

With prices that start at $650, the Pixel is a few hundred dollars more than other models with similar hardware. Head-to-head, though, it’s not fair, particularly if you care about specification bullet points. Look deeper, though, and you’ll find that the software and extra features help bring the value up.

92% Google Pixel XL Review: Successfully Succeeding the Nexus
Source: Pocketnow English
We’re very excited by the idea of a platform where Google controls the hardware and the software. We certainly see the benefits of proper optimization, but at this price we were hoping to see more risks. Anything which might help Google differentiate from the competition or justify a premium label, as the Nexus is now properly retired. We’ve also pointed to the rushed production schedule on this device, and how that seems to have affected camera quality, while forcing Google to omit features like water resistance.

85% Google Pixel XL review: A great "first" try for Google, but not the most complete handset
Source: Neowin English
While Google might have changed the name, the Pixel is a spiritual successor to the Nexus and with that, the company has done what it always does - produce a high-quality handset with the best of what Android has to offer. Although it might not be the most "complete" Android handset on the market, it's still technically a very good "first" try for Google and things can surely only get better. The Pixel isn't a handset that will excite you, but it's definitely a great Android device.

Google Pixel XL Long Term Review: Still The Best
Source: Forbes English
The biggest issue – depending on how you see it – with the Pixel is how bland it is, which is fairly typical of Google’s phone line. But this isn’t necessarily a negative – it comes down to what you want from your phone. For me, it’s refreshing that the Pixel XL doesn’t come with the bloatware of a Samsung phone, or unnecessary gimmicks that don’t add to the overall experience. It’s like a blank canvas that I can build upon. The basics are covered; in an excellent camera, excellent battery, nice design and a crisp display – the rest is up to you. For me, that’s exactly what I want from my smartphone.

Google Pixel XL review: The new Android flagship in the market
Source: The Indian Express English
So does the Google Pixel/Pixel XL mean you can ditch your iPhone 6s or above or the Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 edge? It sure does deliver on the premium price tag, but I wouldn’t say it makes either of these phones redundant. The iPhone 7, 7 Plus are extremely capable device with excellent cameras; Galaxy S7, S7 edge look stunning and despite the Note 7 fiasco, are great flagships. For now, I’d say the Google Pixel phones join the list of flagships to consider, but doesn’t quite beat them.

80% Google Pixel XL review: Elevating the Nexus experience; but dearly priced
Source: Tech2.in.com English
Google Pixel XL offers an excellent camera, great raw performance, good battery life. There’s nothing to not like about the device. Only downer is its price point. If you have that kind of money, there is every reason to go for it, IF you are willing to pay the price for pure Android experience and priority updates. There is a market for that kind of audience, but it’s a niche market. For those that don’t have that kind of budget, the S7 edge in the premium segment and OnePlus 3 in the mid-range segment are the Android phones to look out for.

The Google Pixel XL Review: Life After Nexus
Source: AnandTech English
In the end, the Pixel XL is a decent enough phone, but it is not the ultimate Android phone that people were likely hoping for. It fails to stand out in a crowded market and cannot claim to be the best in any single category; at best it is a jack of all trades. This is a serious problem for a phone that is positioned as and priced like a flagship phone. It also does not help that it’s missing support for microSD cards and wireless charging (it does support the USB Power Delivery specification for 18W fast charging), features that are available on the Galaxy S7 edge. There’s also no environmental protection against water and dust, which both the S7 edge and iPhone 7 Plus include. Even its exclusive software feature, Google Assistant, should be available on future Android phones. In the end, the Pixel XL is a Nexus phone with another name. It still delivers a pure Android experience and timely software and security updates, but is that enough to justify its flagship price?

But until Google Assistant or Daydream VR becomes a must-have feature, we can't quite give the Pixel XL a full five stars. Some people will prefer the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge for its waterproof design, expandable storage, wireless charging, and longer battery life. Others will want the LG V20 for its removable battery, "secondary" display, and unrivaled audio performance. But we highly recommend the Pixel XL to any Android user who wants the guarantee of updates and the peace of mind that comes with Google's promised support. That makes it an Editors' Choice.

After a few doubts, we have become quite smitten with the Pixel. Google’s first phone is friendly enough to make anyone at home with Android.

It’s not water resistant, and nowhere near as sexy as its nearest competition, but that’s fine. If you can stomach the price, the Pixel is almost perfect.

The Google Pixel XL is just Android in its purest form and in short it really is a close (but not quite) perfect device. For those who have had multiple Nexus devices in the past you can recognise bits of them that have been rolled into the Pixel. The hardware is a touch bland, but still maintains an heir of beauty about it with a solid construction gorgeous screen and consistently high level performance. I have heard it referred to as iPhone running Android, but at the end of the day I like the fact it is a touch bland because it still looks nice when you stop to admire it, does the job users expect of it and it doesn’t detract from the user experience.

80% Google Pixel XL review: The best Android phone. Period
Source: India Today English
It is easy to see that Google has created something special in the form of Pixel and the Pixel XL. It is damn near perfect. But it is also missing features like a waterproof body and powerful speakers. And that, combined with the high prices of Rs 57,000 for Pixel and Rs 67,000 for Pixel XL, means the iPhone 7 is a slightly better deal for most consumers, especially when you take into account Apple's proven record in supporting its phones for three to four years with software support. But this lead that Apple has is marginal. The Pixel XL too is right up there. In fact, it is the best phone for you if you are already familiar with Android. It's just pure, unadulterated Android at its best with a killer camera.

The Pixel is Google’s best effort yet at creating their own version of the iPhone. It’s something that simply wasn’t possible under the old Nexus brand. It’s not so much what the Pixel offers, so much as what it represents. Google is no longer watching Android from the sidelines as it’s bastardized by their hardware partners and skinned to look like anything but the OS they built. They know that the only way to truly have full control over the OS, is by having equal amount of control over that hardware it’s running on.

The Pixel XL is the most accomplished phone that's come from Google. The dabs of consumer refinement that Pixel has applied makes the Nexus programme feel like beta testing.

Nexus phones were outside the usual Android rat race, but now the Pixels have to and want to run alongside all flagship smartphones, and that includes even the iPhones, which are a clear target. We loved the camera on the Google Pixel XL and were satisfied with the build quality and software package. However, we're not convinced that Google built the definitive smartphone and yet the search giant priced it as such. This fact, along with the minimum availability through the traditional carrier channels, is bound to limit the Pixels market success.

While the Pixel XL is an attractive phone (if you can get used to the glass section) with decent combination of hardware and software, we can't help but feel a bit disappointed.

First things first, getting a case from the phone maker themselves is typically the best route to take. And if you love the color of that really Blue Pixel or enjoy the two-tone back with the metal and glass design, you'll want a clear case. It doesn't look like much more than a standard TPU case, but it's actually made of a hard and durably polycarbonate plastic. Offering cutouts for all ports, buttons, sensors and more. This is a sleek and minimal way to protect the Pixel or XL. It's available now on the Google Store, but it's expensive.

The Google Pixel is a very good smartphone, but it's also very expensive. It starts at £719 for the 32GB Pixel and runs up to £819 for the 128GB Pixel XL.

Google Pixel XL Review: Android embodied, for better or worse
Source: Slashgear English
That’s not, inherently, a bad thing, but it does make opting for Pixel a platform commitment as much – or more – than it is a hardware choice. You buy a Pixel because you buy into Google’s ecosystem vision of services. Ironically, while Apple might be more commonly thought of as controlling, the value proposition of an iPhone 7 seems far less tied to the Cupertino company’s services than Pixel does to those being developed down the road in Mountain View. In return you get a solid, if perhaps physically uninspiring device. A fast processor and great battery. A camera that’s not only good, but capable of some outstanding shots if the conditions are right. Just be sure you like how the flavor of Google’s vision tastes, because it’s everything the Pixel XL embodies.

Android is by far the most popular smartphone OS - 7 out every 8 phones run some version of it. And yet its purest form, a Nexus device, is anything but dominant in the marketplace. A rebranding effort sees the "Google phones" change the name to Pixel in the hope to change the popularity as well.

Google Pixel 2

The Google Pixel 2 has the best camera quality of any Android phone, and updates like water resistance and a best-in-class processor make it a top pick. The Android Oreo software will get regular updates, and Google's Lens feature taps into Google's vast search database so the user can immediately learn more about the world. Even though it’s constructed from aluminum, the back has a story-like finish. It is harsh and textured; strange at first but ultimately, super-nice. It is far grippier in the hand than shiny aluminum and isn’t as slippery when sat on a table the same way a glass back is. Neither does it appear to pick up fingerprints. Like the previous Pixel, there is a glass ‘shade’ just above the metal covering the camera sensor and flash. Aside from adding contrast to the metal, this is where all the cellular and Wi-Fi antennas live. Giving them plenty of space should help connectivity, but it also means there are no antenna bands elsewhere. Hopefully, this glass panel will be less prone to scratching. Like most flagship phones this year, the Pixel 2 is IP67-rated for water-resistance. Another, less desirable, trend Google has decided to follow is the removal of the headphone jack. The user gets a USB-C to 3.5 mm port dongle in the box and there are plenty of ‘Made for Google’ USB-C headphones coming soon. There is not a whole lot to get excited about with regards to the Pixel 2’s screen. As in the first iteration of the device, it is a 5-inch, 1080p AMOLED panel that looks good but is far short of stunning. AMOLED panels are renowned for offering more saturated colors, perfect blacks and better contrast over their LCD counterparts. The panel on the Pixel 2 edges towards the warm side, so the user will likely find that whites will have a slightly orange tinge. Note that Google does not offer any capability to adjust colors on the display, which is annoying if the user prefers a slightly cooler screen. The Pixel 2 does not quite have the huge performance shift of its predecessor, probably because it uses the same Snapdragon 835 platform and 4 GB of RAM as the majority of other 2017 flagships. Nevertheless, it remains speedy in almost every single area. The single biggest reason to choose the Pixel 2 over any other handset is the camera. On paper, the 12-megapixel f/1.8 unit sounds pedestrian. In use however, it captures some wonderfully detailed images that are often much better than those produced by the competition. Video capture is excellent. The camera now uses both EIS (electronic image stabilization) and OIS (optical image stabilization) to help avoid shakiness, resulting in a smoother image.

Small, but powerful! The smallish Pixel 2 smartphone features a 5-inch 16:9 display. In addition to being slightly cheaper, this is the only difference when compared with its bigger brother. The camera has managed to impress us but battery life is a little on the short side.

91% Review: Google Pixel 2 is the best smartphone for stills photographers
Source: DP Review English
The Google Pixel 2 combines hardware with powerful software to produce incredibly detailed and vibrant still images in both daylight and low light. Class-leading dual pixel AF is fast and accurate even in low light, and 4K/30p is both beautiful and also smooth thanks to optical + electronic stabilization. The camera's background blurring mode is among the best. And unlimited free photo storage via Google Photo is just the icing on the cake. We wish it offered wireless charging, a more accurate color display and a telephoto rear camera. But still you'd be hard put to find a smartphone in 2018 that takes prettier pictures.

Should you buy it at a starting price of Rs 61,000? If you can afford it and want the best camera and Android experience in a compact form factor, then absolutely go for it. Also, Flipkart and Google have been kind enough to come up with stupendous offers. Apart from a dated bezel-full design, I don’t think there are any major flaws with it. If you’re more interested in the larger, Pixel 2 XL, you can read our other review.

Unfortunately, a few new problems have wormed their way in. As a result, the Pixel 2 range is solid, but not award-winning – and that’s a real shame.

The Google Pixel 2 is packed with some amazing internals in a humdrum design. Comparing to its predecessor, it has a speedy processor, improved camera modules, and offers outstanding Android experience. If you don’t mind the big bezels, the Pixel 2 can easily satiate your hunger for power. If you need smaller bezels and can spend more, go for the Pixel 2 XL, which is not much different except for the display and the battery, but it all boils down to the display size and your convenience. Even though it starts at Rs. 61,000, Flipkart is coming up with several offers, which brings down the price of the phone to Rs. 39,999.

Google Pixel 2 review, a month later: Still solid, still the best
Source: Android Central English
We can all quibble about the value proposition of the larger Pixel 2 XL at $849, with a larger screen and battery not quite justifying the $200 price bump. But when you look at what the Pixel 2 offers for just $649 it's no surprise that I and the rest of the Android Central team rate it so highly. And an extra month of use has only solidified my feelings on this great phone. Even taking its imperfections into account, it's the best phone Google has made and one I think anyone would be happy using.

Source: Tech2 English
Between the two, the Pixel 2 takes the cake as it is a no frills Android smartphone, which offers the basics and does them really well, while it’s at it. There’s no tap to adapt for third-party apps because there’s no nonsensical taller display, you don’t have to pinch to zoom every time you play a video either. The bezels are thin, but the grip and usability is excellent. In short, it just works! And does everything brilliantly, be it the camera, battery, display and the software.

I hate the bezels. I really HATE them. But I love everything else about this immensely powerful, super-useful phone. Given the choice, I would always go with the Pixel 2 XL, but if you want something smaller with a brighter display, then the Pixel 2 is about as good as it gets.

After testing both phones, it’s clear that the Pixel 2 is the safer choice of the two. Sure, you lose out on a bit of screen real estate and aesthetics, but in turn, you get a better quality display which lacks most of the (sometimes) deal-breaking issues of the Pixel 2 XL. Other than that, you get the same performance, the same great cameras, and the promise of timely updates from Google. If you’re looking for a higher resolution display and advanced features like wireless charging in the Android space, then look no further than the Samsung Galaxy S8. The iPhone 8 is also an excellent alternative to the Pixel 2, which retails around the same price as the Pixel 2.

Now the Pixel 2 isn’t a perfect handset. The bezels around the display are enormous for a phone in 2017, and the build quality, while still quite nice in general, doesn’t match the same quality of the Pixel 2 XL. But in all honesty, while we’d all prefer a sexier phone with smaller bezels, after a week of using the Pixel 2, you just forget it’s an issue altogether.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL also benefit from faster performance than the Galaxy S8, stellar front and back cameras and long battery life. Overall, I prefer the sleeker designs and curved edge-to-edge displays on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, and the iPhone 8 Plus remains the king of camera phones. But if you want a pure Android experience, you'll love the $849 Pixel 2 XL. The Pixel 2's bezels are just way too big and it's screen too small for me to take this phone seriously, even for its relatively low $649.

Is the small Pixel 2 the better Pixel this year? Certainly not if you're looking for a large display. Put that aside, however, and the Pixel 2 delivers the goods just as well as its XL counterpart while being considerably more affordable, not to mention you can actually buy one right now. Add to that the glaring lack of reported display issues on the Pixel 2 M, in stark contrast to the rocky launch of the Extra Large version, and it could mean that small is the way to go.

This is the first time that I’ve changed my mind on a phone. The Pixel 2 is a 9/10 on the basis of its industry-leading 2-year warranty which includes ship-in costs, and 3-year software support cycle. That’s twice as long regarding hardware and — in some cases — three times as long for security and feature updates.

Source: Sydney Morning Herald English
The screen on the XL and the bezels on the standard Pixel 2 are obvious missteps, and the lack of a 3.5mm jack will upset some, but in my opinion these aren't big concerns. These phones set out to improve everything that was already great about the original Pixel, and to bring the same excellent custom touch to Android O that last year's phone brough to Android N, and that's exactly what they do.

Google’s foray into the hardware market is still in its infant stage, but it’s becoming a more impressive journey with each passing year. The Pixel 2, or at least the Pixel 2 XL has at the very least a small cloud over it thanks to the screen used but it seems to be hit and miss as to whether it’s an issue at all. Google has systems in place, including a 15-day return option to mitigate these issues so you can order, and return the phone if it does turn out to be an issue.

The Pixel 2 stormed out of the gate without compromise. The Samsung AMOLED panel is simply outstanding and the specs aren’t lessened in any meaningful way, so the experience is identical to its big brother. There are rumblings out there about clicks and noises coming from some Pixel 2 units, but I haven’t experienced any of that. As far as I’m concerned, the Pixel 2 is Google’s Android 8.0 Oreo champion. The unlikely king of the mountain this year.

The Pixel 2 isn’t a flashy phone. If you’re looking for something to impress your friends who are getting an iPhone X, you’ll have to look at the Galaxy phones.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL deliver smartphone packages that are arguably the best in all of Android.

You also get choice in size of phone without giving up anything and access to whatever new Google features are introduced over the coming years.

Source: Hardware Zone English
Finally, the Pixel 2 phones run Android 8.0.0 Oreo, with its own Pixel Launcher to set it apart, UI-wise, from other Oreo handsets. The most obvious departure from last year’s Pixels is the removal of the “G” search pill on the new-look homescreen, which now has a full-width Google Search bar (rounded corners!) sandwiched between the dock of icons and navigation keys at the bottom. I’m ambivalent about this change, but for those who outright reject it, there’s always third-party launchers. As before, you can long-press the home button to summon Google Assistant, long-press the circular app icons to bring up shortcut items, swipe right to get to the Google app, and swipe up from the bottom of the screen to reveal the app drawer. And if you’re adamant about one-handed use, you can configure the phones to bring down the notification panel when you swipe down on the fingerprint scanner.

The Samsung is the sexier phone: all black glass with those curvy infinity edges, endlessly controllable camera, and tons of interface options you can tweak forever. But as a working phone, I think I’d pick the Pixel 2. It’s easier to hold (which counts for a lot), the Google Assistant is truly impressive, it runs Project Fi, and there’s really nothing missing from it, other than the headphone jack, that I care much about.

Rather than build two identical Pixels this year, Google decided to make its new small smartphone a little more conservative.

After much aplomb, Google’s new flagships are finally here and bring a ton of great features to the table. They’re not perfect, though. They are priced higher than most people would like, and the lack of headphone jack will certainly turn some people away.

Hands-on: Google Pixel 2 review
Source: PC Advisor English
Our first impressions of the Pixel 2 are mixed. We loved the original and although the new model brings the best of Google via Android Oreo, we're not sure enough has changed to warrant a higher price and to compete with rivals. The phone is missing key features including wireless charging, a microSD card slot and an exciting display. The Pixel 2 XL is a lot more interesting.

Google acquired the HTC team that built the new Pixel 2 - let's see what the search giant bought for a billion dollars. Strangely enough, the smaller of the two devices hasn't changed much, but the larger Pixel 2 XL is much more in step with modern flagships.

Google Pixel 2 reviewed: Sets new record for overall smartphone camera quality
Source: DxOMark English
We’re in danger of running out of superlatives when describing the major image quality attributes of the Google Pixel 2. That makes sense for a device that tops our scoring charts —up from the 94 of the Apple iPhone 8 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to a record-setting 98. So for just about any Photo or Video use case, it recommends itself as the phone camera with the best image quality. A notable exception to that assessment centers around the added performance in Zoom and Bokeh (including Depth and Portrait) that dual-camera smartphones such as the Apple iPhone 8 Plus and Galaxy Note 8 can provide. This said, the Pixel 2 is especially well-suited to videographers, as it achieves the highest Video score for any device we’ve tested — a 96.

Google Pixel 2/Pixel XL 2 Preview: All There Is To Know
Source: Android Headlines English
Although there is still probably a couple of months to go before Google officially introduces the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2, two months will probably go by quick and before you know it both devices will be here. It’s also worth mentioning that even though no information in this post is confirmed, much of the leaked detail that has popped up so far is what to look forward to, and more information is bound to surface leading up to the announcement.

85% Google Pixel 2 review: Small wonder
Source: India Today English
Yes and no. The Pixel 2 is a great smartphone. In fact, it's the best Android smartphone in the market right now. Especially for someone looking for a compact smartphone. But, it isn't meant for everybody. The Pixel 2 is meant for people looking for a no nonsense Android smartphone that works, and has an outstanding camera while at it. For everybody else, there are certainly flashier options in the market that can do so much more.

Google Pixel 2 XL

The Google Pixel XL 2 is a fantastic phone with a stunning camera crafted by Google. While the Pixel 2 sticks to a familiar blueprint, the Pixel 2 XL mimics the Samsung Galaxy S8, iPhone X, and LG V30 by slimming down the bezel and extending the display. The Pixel 2 XL has an 18:9 display with rounded corners. But unlike those devices like Galaxy S8, there is still a prominent bezel around its sides. This makes the Pixel 2 XL feel big, and more comparable to the Galaxy Note 8 in terms of size. The bezel serves a purpose in the Pixel 2 XL. Above and below the display sit decent-sounding, front-firing stereo speakers, plus Google has added pressure-sensitive edges that will invoke the Assistant with a squeeze of the sides. The back of the Pixel 2 XL is a mixture of glass and aluminum. The aluminum is covered with a coating that gives a chalkboard-like feel; resistive, gripper and slightly textured. It is an excellent finish that goes some way to add the grip lost by the Pixel 2 XL’s lack of curves. The Google Pixel 2 XL is powered by a 1.9 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and it comes with 4 GB of RAM. The phone packs 64 GB of internal storage that cannot be expanded. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Google Pixel 2 XL packs a 12.2-megapixel primary camera on the rear and an 8-megapixel front shooter for selfies. At 6 inch, the screen on the Pixel 2 XL is the biggest seen on a Google-branded handset since the Nexus 6. Instead of using one of the fantastic Super AMOLED panels from Samsung, Google has opted for a plastic OLED, or P-OLED, from LG. With a quad-HD+ resolution, there’s plenty of detail and movies look great. This screen is not touted as an HDR display, but Google has worked some software trickery to allow it to playback HDR-enabled clips from YouTube, and the extra contrast looks fantastic. One of the biggest reasons to choose a Pixel 2 XL over a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 or LG V30 is the software. Instead of layering Android with bloatware and proprietary apps. Google sticks with a very basic version of Android 8. The user will also get first dibs on the next three big yearly Android updates, something that is unlikely with much of the competition. Like most flagship handsets worth their price tags this year, the Pixel 2 XL is IP67-rated for water-resistance. This means a user can submerge the phone in 1 m of water for about half an hour without any resulting damage. In the Pixel 2 XL, Google has also followed the trend to remove the headphone jack. This might have pushed back many potential buyers but it looks like ‘like-it-or-not’, this is going to catch on. There is a USB-C to 3.5 mm port dongle in the box and there are plenty of ‘Made for Google’ USB-C headphones coming soon. The Pixel XL 2 is an Android perfection but it does come in a hefty price tag. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

No reference. The Pixel 2 XL is visually a high-end smartphone from 2017 and has a POLED display in the 2:1 format. Visually, the relation to the LG V30 cannot be denied, but it has taken a different path in terms of the camera. Furthermore, there is ample battery power.

Another annoyance I have with the software is the lack of manual tuning on how apps work with this elongated aspect ratio. The majority of Android apps are designed for 16:9 displays, but the extra height here means you’re going to run into some dodgy-looking black bars. The isn’t really an issue with apps, since most can dynamically shift to fill the screen. However, many of the games I’ve tried don’t fit the screen. Other 18:9 phones have got round this issue by letting you manually stretch apps to fit the whole screen; this isn’t something Google offers, however.

Five Reasons the Google Pixel 2(XL) is King of the smartphones and best on Verizon
Source: G Style Magazine English
The Pixel 2 starts at $649.99 while the Pixel 2XL is $200 more and starts at $849. Both of these include 64GB of storage or you can opt and double the space for more memory. If you think you will burn through it because of photos and video the Pixel phones have always been sweet because you can do unlimited uploads in its original quality to Google Photos. Mix this with Verizon’s Unlimited plan and you have a winner. This will be good until 2020 so you have some time to snap away. Verizon has same pricing but tends to offer BOGOs, and other incentives with trade-ins if you catch them.

The Google Pixel 2 XL is the second iteration (and third or fourth smartphone depending how you look at it) of Google’s internally developed smartphones. While it’s nothing overly special or different, it is a solid Android smartphone with the added luxury of having stock Android and timely security updates straight from Google. It’s also nice to see Google implementing some features from other OEMs into the hardware and the Android operating system as well, but there are still many more useful features they can add.

On the other hand, the Pixel 2 XL is not a cheap phone. And for the amount of cash it requires, you may find that the few compromises it does pack are too much to swallow. It all comes down to what you value above all else: if you really can't live without the headphone jack, if you are very concerned about having the absolute best display there is, if you don't want to play the Bluetooth accessory connection lottery, if you hate putting a case on your phone and can't live with accidental touches due to the curve of the screen... then you'll probably be best served by one of the Pixel 2 XL's many competitors.

Between the two, the Pixel 2 takes the cake as it is a no frills Android smartphone, which offers the basics and does them really well, while it’s at it. There’s no tap to adapt for third-party apps because there’s no nonsensical taller display, you don’t have to pinch to zoom every time you play a video either. The bezels are thin, but the grip and usability is excellent. In short, it just works! And does everything brilliantly, be it the camera, battery, display and the software.

Google Pixel 2XL Review – Best Android Smartphone You can Buy?

Yes, the experience is indeed premium and Yes, the handset does feel overpriced. At the same time, Google is offering features that you won’t get on any smartphone out there (including the best camera experience) and it’s for you to decide if you are willing to pay the price. According to us, if you are looking for a flagship smartphone with the best camera in the market, go for Pixel 2 XL.

80% Google Pixel 2 XL review: Only for the pure of Android
Source: Hardware Zone English
All things considered, the Pixel 2 XL probably isn't the phone for everyone. Pure Android fans will love being the first to get updates, security patches, and new features like Google Lens, but with so many other flagship smartphones out there, and with most Android manufacturers now offering a UI experience that's fairly close to stock Android anyway (yes, even Samsung), you may be better off choosing a phone without so many caveats. If you really have to have a Pixel smartphone, I would actually consider importing the smaller Pixel 2 instead. While it has a more conventional design, it does have a Full HD AMOLED display, which doesn't have the same issues plaguing the Pixel 2 XL's pOLED display.

Google Pixel 2 XL: Why It Has My Recommendation [Review]
Source: G Style Magazine English
You know I’ve been fortunate and my review unit hasn’t had the host of issues that some other reviewers have experienced and I know a few other reviewers as well who are just fine with their Pixel 2 XLs. I will say out of the most recent issues reported I have experienced the weird Google Assistant not recording what you say via Bluetooth headphones or car. It is a weird thing that doesn’t work when I activate by squeeze but works sometime fine when I use the trigger word Ok Google. Other than this I’ve been fine.

Google Pixel 2 XL was an answer to Apple’s iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus, and Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Note 8. Unfortunately, Google Pixel 2 XL does not feel like a device that has delivered on the promise of being a dream phone for Android fans thanks to some of the hardware issues. It appears to be incomplete and the spate of problems popping up daily show no signs of stopping.

But with concerns over the display and a high price tag, explore your options before diving into the world of Pixel.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL also benefit from faster performance than the Galaxy S8, stellar front and back cameras and long battery life. Overall, I prefer the sleeker designs and curved edge-to-edge displays on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, and the iPhone 8 Plus remains the king of camera phones. But if you want a pure Android experience, you'll love the $849 Pixel 2 XL. The Pixel 2's bezels are just way too big and it's screen too small for me to take this phone seriously, even for its relatively low $649.

Source: Gadget Diary English
Keeping all that aside, the Pixel 2 XL is one powerful Android smartphone. It has an excellent camera and powerful processor. The Pixel 2 XL price starts at Rs 73,000 for the 64GB model and 128GB model comes at Rs 82,000. At this price, the biggest competition it faces is from Apple iPhone 8 Plus. Those who are Android devotees might like to go for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 or the Galaxy S8. There's little to separate the Pixel 2 XL from competition - which isn't a surprise as it's always the case with most flagships. It will come down to why you want to buy a flagship. If the camera is the tilting factor, don't look further than the Google Pixel 2 XL.

Google struggled with hardware with its Nexus devices, but it is trying to change that with big strategic investments, in the hopes that it can one day go toe-to-toe with Apple and Samsung. With all the learnings from its first two Pixel generations, perhaps the Pixel 3 might be the perfect Android device everyone hopes for (you know, third time's the charm). But that’s in the future, and today we are dealing with a phone that costs Rs. 73,000 and has seen more issues within a few weeks of its release than most phones see in their entire lifecycles. Granted, many of these issues can be fixed with software patches, and we’re sure Google is working on them around the clock, but the experience needs to be at a certain level right from the beginning.

The Pixel 2, or at least the Pixel 2 XL has at the very least a small cloud over it thanks to the screen used but it seems to be hit and miss as to whether it’s an issue at all.

Some of the features I’m really enjoying is the front facing speakers, I loved those. I’m not sure why anyone would introduce that and then take it away. Glad to have it again. And the squeeze to launch Google Assistant is interesting. I’ve use it a couple of times but we’ll see how I feel about it after I’ve spent more time with the phone. And finally the camera. I’ve taken a few pictures (will show those in the full review), and so far I’m impressed.

Hands-on with the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL
Source: Hardware Zone English
Finally, the Pixel 2 phones run Android 8.0.0 Oreo, with its own Pixel Launcher to set it apart, UI-wise, from other Oreo handsets. The most obvious departure from last year’s Pixels is the removal of the “G” search pill on the new-look homescreen, which now has a full-width Google Search bar (rounded corners!) sandwiched between the dock of icons and navigation keys at the bottom. I’m ambivalent about this change, but for those who outright reject it, there’s always third-party launchers. As before, you can long-press the home button to summon Google Assistant, long-press the circular app icons to bring up shortcut items, swipe right to get to the Google app, and swipe up from the bottom of the screen to reveal the app drawer. And if you’re adamant about one-handed use, you can configure the phones to bring down the notification panel when you swipe down on the fingerprint scanner.

Rather than build two identical Pixels this year, Google decided to make its new small smartphone a little more conservative. Make no mistake: the Pixel 2 is still an incredibly fast phone, and a clean build of Android 8.0 Oreo combined with Google's intelligent features make the device incredibly capable. And its camera?

Google Pixel 2/Pixel XL 2 Preview: All There Is To Know
Source: Android Headlines English
Although there is still probably a couple of months to go before Google officially introduces the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2, two months will probably go by quick and before you know it both devices will be here. It’s also worth mentioning that even though no information in this post is confirmed, much of the leaked detail that has popped up so far is what to look forward to, and more information is bound to surface leading up to the announcement.

The Google Pixel 3 is an expensive smartphone, which retails for US$799 (£739). However, it must compete against comparably equipped but considerably cheaper competitors.

94% Google Pixel 3 review: Great things come in small(er) packages
Source: Techaeris English
If you’re in the market for a new smartphone, the Google Pixel 3 is a fantastic device, especially when taking into account newer features like Night Sight. If you’re still rocking a Nexus or original Pixel device, the Pixel 3 will be a great upgrade. The Google Pixel 3 is definitely an improvement over the Pixel 2 smartphones. However, most of the features have come, or will be coming, to the Pixel 2 and 2 XL as well so it is a bit harder to justify an update unless you really want or need the latest and greatest Google has to offer.

Google Pixel 3 Review: a Pure Android Experience and Super Camera, but what a price!
Source: Androidbeat English
Overall, there’s a lot to recommend here. Set in an imperfect Android world where security vulnerabilities, malware and other issues are weekly news events, and where even major manufacturers have flawed update records, the pure Google ‘monthly updates’, only days behind the OS code itself being fixed, take some beating. And are worth paying for.

The Google Pixel 3 Review: The Ultimate Camera Test
Source: AnandTech English
Overall, is the Pixel 3 a worthwhile phone to purchase? The problem here is I think unless you’re very entrenched in Google’s software ecosystem and you make good use of many of Google US-exclusive features on the Pixel, then you might want to consider some other alternatives or just wait out the next generation from the big vendors. Google’s release schedule, which is out of sync with SoC vendors, means that the Pixel is again a half-way point between generations. On top of that, Google is demanding the full price of a new flagship, while lacking some of the features or build quality of said flagships.

Pixels have always been niche phones - in fact, since before they were even Pixels, though admittedly the Nexus line was niche in a different way. The number of Pixel 3s sold will very likely be a fraction of the major competitors' figures, but does that make the Pixel 3 a bad phone?

90% Google Pixel 3 review: The best camera smartphone of 2018
Source: The Indian Express English
It is hard to question Google’s intent behind making the Pixel 3. The vision is to make a flagship Android smartphone that is backed by Google AI, which is fast and slick, and where software takes a center stage. The Pixel 3 comes close but it is still not a perfect device. The camera is its biggest merit, the screen looks good, the front-facing speakers are loud and the battery is good if not the best. Overall, I believe the Pixel 3 is the right phone for geeks and early adopters, but it’s still not ready to be a mass premium seller like the iPhone XS and Galaxy S9.

Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL review: Much ado about notching
Source: Hardware Zone English
The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL aren't perfect. But from a features and software standpoint, I do think Google has knocked it out of the park again. This is also a time where something approaching design fatigue is becoming increasingly obvious, and a lot flagships phones are starting to look uncannily similar to each other, and to their predecessors. Software is one of the areas where companies can continue to throw in fresh ideas and innovate, and Google is doing this wonderfully. The Pixel 3 phones may not be the swankiest kids on the block, but they deliver where it counts. And sometimes, maybe substance matters more than flair.

The Pixel 3 proves that you do not need multiple cameras to take great photographs. Which is why it goes right up there with the best in the phone photography business, in spite of seeming to be relatively modestly specced. No, it is not perfect. It can be erratic. It can be inconsistent. And sometimes it can deliver results that border on the unreal.

It’s going much too far to say that flagship Android smartphones have all become the same, but the differences between their hardware have become pretty narrow. Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, OLED screen, Gorilla Glass — if you were buying strictly off a spec sheet, it’s become fairly difficult to make a mistake if you’re picking from among the top four or five phones or vendors.

What I will say is that I would be perfectly happy with the Pixel 3 or XL. And I was impressed with the Quick Switch Adapter (USB-A female to USB-C) and software that transferred everything from my Note9 very efficiently. It also works with iPhone, Blackberry and Windows Phone transfer. In Android to Android transfers the worst it will ask for is a password to activate the app, (e.g. email etc.).

That might seem weird to say when some vendors are equipping their phones with even more stripped back "stock" Android software, like HMD with its Nokia smartphones, but the difference is that Google's additions support and enhance Android Pie while keeping the whole thing minimal and fast, not beating you over the heady with glitzy features. Like last year, this is the best Android experience and camera you can get, but this time it's wrapped up in an overall better machine.

Google Pixel 3: When The Phone’s Software Makes The Phone! [Review]
Source: G Style Magazine English
The Google Pixel 3 will run you $799 to start and $899 for the Pixel 3 XL. This will get you the 64GB storage models with another $100 bump up if you want 128GB. In the box besides the phone, Google this year has included a pair of wired USB-C headphones that have the same look as the wireless Pixel Buds. These headphones can be used with Google Assistant, and do live translation like the Pixel Buds. Both models share the roughly the same specs with only the battery being bigger on the Pixel 3 XL and the Pixel 3 speaker sounds being about 10% less than the XL. The Pixel 3 series is not available for pre-order now and both models come in Just Black, Clearly White, and the new Not Pink. We’ll have more about the Pixel 3 as we next talk about the new Google Pixel Stand.

The Pixel 3 might not be the most exciting upgrade in the history of phones, partly due to the excessive leaks perhaps, but it's a great device made even better with refinements at a reasonable price.

The Google Pixel 3 has the best smartphone camera you can buy today. Don’t let the raw specs fool you: its very ordinary sounding single 12.2MP rear camera with an f/1.8 aperture is enhanced by machine-learning software, Google’s secret sauce to making your photos better. The phone design doesn’t stand out and the battery life is underwhelming for power users, but Google does pack in a 5.5-inch screen and dual front-facing speakers into a one-hand-friendly phone. It’s Google’s best phone in a smaller size.

Overall, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are a marked improvement over last year's models and from what we can see, they don't really have any deal-breaking flaw other than very high price tag. They are well-built, look great, have solid performance, and continue to shoot amazing photographs, thanks to great software. If we were to pick our favourite of the two, we'd recommend getting the Pixel 3 XL over the Pixel 3. The bigger battery and the larger, higher resolution display simply makes for a better experience.

For me, it’s more than worth it. I would pick the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL not only over most other Android phones, but even over the latest iPhones (even the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, which are far more expensive). But I’m also highly invested in Google’s ecosystem, I’m a sucker for little details like the soft touch back, and I have a near compulsive need to use Android the way Google intends it.

90% Pixel 3 and 3 XL review: Google’s hardware takes a backseat to software
Source: Engadget English
The Pixel 3 XL would be a superb big-screen phone if its notch weren’t so polarizing. If you don’t like the fact that this notch is bigger than rival phones and don’t want to use the software fix to mask it, the Pixel 3 XL isn’t for you. But if you can live with those caveats, the Pixel 3 XL is a long-lasting, powerful flagship with a brilliant display, capable cameras and the best of Google’s software smarts.

Pricing here is somewhat competitive as well. The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL start at $799 and $899, respectively, for the 64GB models. That’s not cheap when you consider phones like the One Plus 6 are available for hundreds less, but in the overall landscape (and certainly compared to Apple's iPhone XS), the new Pixels aren’t the most expensive flagships either. Ultimately, Google seems to have balanced things nicely with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. If you’re in the market for a new smartphone, do yourself a favor and check them out.

We only have three years of Google-made phones to look at, so it’s too early to tell if the company is going to fall into an Apple-esque pattern of alternating between big, flashy phones one year and “S-year” updates the next. But to me, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are quite a bit like the S-year iPhones.

Google's Pixel 3 smartphones are probably one of the worst kept secrets in the entirety of tech history. The phones leaked in their entirety in weeks leading up to launch, and one retailer in Hong Kong even started selling the Pixel 3 XL ahead of time.

So, what’s all this going to cost you? Well, the Pixel 3 starts at Rs. 71,000 while the Pixel 3 XL starts at Rs. 83,000. This is a Rs. 10,000 bump in price compared to last year’s model, which was to be expected we guess. It’s definitely going to be a challenge for Google this year, considering how competing flagships from Samsung retail for much less these days. The Pixel phones have always been about the camera but when you go this high up the price bracket, people are looking for the best all-round experience, which Google needs to nail. From what we’ve seen, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL seem like a definite step-up from their predecessors in terms of design and the way they feel. The question is, are they worth it? We’ll be testing them over the next couple of days so stay tuned for the full review coming soon.

Source: Android Authority English
Much of the interest in the new Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL (I’ll just use ‘Pixel 3’ through the article to keep it simple) has to do with the improved camera setup, mostly because the Pixel 2’s camera was so great. Many consider it to be the best in the business, and some would even say it’s even better than the recently launched iPhone XS (please argue in comments appropriately).

Overall, it's really difficult to recommend the Pixel 3 XL to anyone without multiple caveats. While it's still a good phone all things considered, you can get a better phone overall for that price and you can most certainly get a phone that does 90% of what the Pixel 3 XL does at around half the price. In the end, the value proposition is just not there and while it's difficult to put a price on the software advancements that the Pixel phones bring, we think Google also needs to start doing better in other areas if it's going to continue pricing its phones this high.

It is kind of ironical, though. Right until the Nexus 6P, Google’s phones were known for their phenomenal turn of speed and butter smoothness, at relatively affordable prices. And for having adequate rather than exceptional cameras. The 6P changed all that and the Pixel era saw the phones emerge as the frontrunners in camera photography. Unfortunately, this seems to have come at the cost of the very virtues that made the Nexus great – performance!

Pixel 3 XL is for those who want a premium Android phone with a camera experience unlike any other, without any of the jazz about three or four sensors at the back. It is also for those who want an Android experience which gets upgraded regularly. However, Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL users might not see much point in upgrading, considering there’s not such a bump in hardware or performance. Plus, most of the camera features of Pixel 3 will be coming to Pixel 2 phones. It is software afterall.

It’s really hard for us to justify spending upwards of $1,000 for a phone, regardless of the brand. Not from Samsung, not from LG, and not from Google.

The Google Pixel 3 XL is the best big-screened camera phone you can buy today, one that’s able to capture stunning photos that your friends won’t believe came from a smartphone. You’ll have to be okay with its prominent notch cut out at the top of the 6.3-inch display and the higher price, a familiar trade-offs for a little extra screen space in 2018.

The Google Pixel 3 XL continues to deliver on the promise of jaw-dropping imaging performance. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 paired with Android 9.0 make the Pixel 3 XL a solid performer for any and every task, regardless of how demanding it may be. However, for a smartphone priced at Rs 83,000 for the 64GB variant, the Google Pixel 3 XL feels grossly overpriced, given that it doesn't support expandable storage, doesn't sport an HDR10 compliant display and still doesn't have a secondary rear camera. The Pixel 3 XL asks a huge premium for the peace of mind that every time you take a photo, you're going to have a winner on your hands.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL aren't perfect. But from a features and software standpoint, I do think Google has knocked it out of the park again. This is also a time where something approaching design fatigue is becoming increasingly obvious, and a lot flagships phones are starting to look uncannily similar to each other, and to their predecessors. Software is one of the areas where companies can continue to throw in fresh ideas and innovate, and Google is doing this wonderfully. The Pixel 3 phones may not be the swankiest kids on the block, but they deliver where it counts. And sometimes, maybe substance matters more than flair.

The Pixel 3 XL is a big, powerful pure Android phone that puts all things Google front and center, though we prefer wrapping our hands around its smaller sibling.

Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL review: Much ado about notching
Source: Hardware Zone English
The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL aren't perfect. But from a features and software standpoint, I do think Google has knocked it out of the park again. This is also a time where something approaching design fatigue is becoming increasingly obvious, and a lot flagships phones are starting to look uncannily similar to each other, and to their predecessors. Software is one of the areas where companies can continue to throw in fresh ideas and innovate, and Google is doing this wonderfully. The Pixel 3 phones may not be the swankiest kids on the block, but they deliver where it counts. And sometimes, maybe substance matters more than flair.

85% Google Pixel 3 XL review: Best Android phone, best phone camera. Yet again
Source: India Today English
I am going to keep this simple. The answer is "absolutely". If you want a phone with the best camera, get the Pixel 3 XL. If you want a phone that will get the latest Android updates, and will get the clean Google's Android, get the Pixel 3 XL. If you want the best Android phone, get the Pixel 3 XL, or the Pixel 3 that costs less at price of Rs 71,000. At a starting price of Rs 83,000 it is also an expensive phone but unlike the Pixel 2 XL, this time around it is also a phone that gives you more for the money you spent on it, whether it is the screen, design or the camera. It's just that it's still not the best phone for most people. That in my opinion remains the iPhone XS, although that phone also costs more with a starting price of Rs 99,900.

Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL go live – first look
Source: Gadgetguy English
What I will say is that I would be perfectly happy with the Pixel 3 or XL. And I was impressed with the Quick Switch Adapter (USB-A female to USB-C) and software that transferred everything from my Note9 very efficiently. It also works with iPhone, Blackberry and Windows Phone transfer. In Android to Android transfers the worst it will ask for is a password to activate the app, (e.g. email etc.).

Officially available on October 18, the Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL start at $799 and $899, respectively. These prices seem bang on considering the competition and the kind of value that you get out of these devices, so we can’t be annoyed by the price increase from last year’s Pixels. For the Android purist, the Material Design appreciator, and the camera buff – these are the Android phones to get right now.

And that's the point of the Pixel 3: turning Pixel into a platform. Like the iPhone, Google is putting the user experience ahead of the specs or features enthusiasts crave. It may be a tougher sell—especially at premium prices—but it also comes with a guarantee few other phones can offer: This time next year, it’ll actually be better.

Google Pixel 3 XL review: Greatness with a hideous notch
Source: Neowin English
The Google Pixel 3 XL is an excellent device. My biggest issues with it are the hideous notch and the cellular connectivity issues that I had, and I assume that my connectivity issues are either device-specific or will be fixed in a firmware update. Other than that, everything just works, and it's just a really pleasant device to use.

Overall, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are a marked improvement over last year's models and from what we can see, they don't really have any deal-breaking flaw other than very high price tag. They are well-built, look great, have solid performance, and continue to shoot amazing photographs, thanks to great software. If we were to pick our favourite of the two, we'd recommend getting the Pixel 3 XL over the Pixel 3. The bigger battery and the larger, higher resolution display simply makes for a better experience.

While Jason will post a review of the larger Pixel 3 XL, I'll be following up with my thoughts on the smaller model that I bought from Google. Let me know if you have any questions to address in my formal review. After a few days of use, it is possible that the Google Pixel 3 XL may knock the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 from the top of my 10 best smartphones list.

Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL Review: Third time’s a charm [Video]

For me, it’s more than worth it. I would pick the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL not only over most other Android phones, but even over the latest iPhones (even the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, which are far more expensive). But I’m also highly invested in Google’s ecosystem, I’m a sucker for little details like the soft touch back, and I have a near compulsive need to use Android the way Google intends it.

90% Pixel 3 and 3 XL review: Google’s hardware takes a backseat to software
Source: Engadget English
The Pixel 3 XL would be a superb big-screen phone if its notch weren’t so polarizing. If you don’t like the fact that this notch is bigger than rival phones and don’t want to use the software fix to mask it, the Pixel 3 XL isn’t for you. But if you can live with those caveats, the Pixel 3 XL is a long-lasting, powerful flagship with a brilliant display, capable cameras and the best of Google’s software smarts.

Google Pixel 3 And Pixel 3 XL Review: Killer Camera, Android Refined
Source: Hot Hardware English
Pricing here is somewhat competitive as well. The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL start at $799 and $899, respectively, for the 64GB models. That’s not cheap when you consider phones like the One Plus 6 are available for hundreds less, but in the overall landscape (and certainly compared to Apple's iPhone XS), the new Pixels aren’t the most expensive flagships either. Ultimately, Google seems to have balanced things nicely with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. If you’re in the market for a new smartphone, do yourself a favor and check them out.

We only have three years of Google-made phones to look at, so it’s too early to tell if the company is going to fall into an Apple-esque pattern of alternating between big, flashy phones one year and “S-year” updates the next. But to me, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are quite a bit like the S-year iPhones.

So, what’s all this going to cost you? Well, the Pixel 3 starts at Rs. 71,000 while the Pixel 3 XL starts at Rs. 83,000. This is a Rs. 10,000 bump in price compared to last year’s model, which was to be expected we guess. It’s definitely going to be a challenge for Google this year, considering how competing flagships from Samsung retail for much less these days. The Pixel phones have always been about the camera but when you go this high up the price bracket, people are looking for the best all-round experience, which Google needs to nail. From what we’ve seen, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL seem like a definite step-up from their predecessors in terms of design and the way they feel. The question is, are they worth it? We’ll be testing them over the next couple of days so stay tuned for the full review coming soon.
