To get help in manufacturing their latest smartphone, Nexus, Google shamelessly “exploited” other brands, like LG or HTC. But now engineers of this technology titan came up with their own design, even two designs, for smartphones – the smaller Pixel and a the bigger Google Pixel XL. In our review we’re gonna highlight the latter.
The Pixel XL features the latest Android 7.1 Nougat with all its novelties, like split-screen, “move gestures” or a new Night Mode. Due to the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor the phone works fast and responsively. There are also standard 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory with the possibility of expanding it.
The Pixel XL has a 5.5-inch AMOLED screen with a Quad High (2560 x 1440) resolution. The imagery is clear and bright, the color transfer is striking. Cameras on the phone are also pretty good – the rear one boasts 12.3MP and can record 4K videos, while the frontal one has 8MP, which is also quite impressive. One of its most distinctive features is video stabilization, so that the footage wouldn’t get shaky.
Obviously, the Pixel XL is fitted with Google voice assistant. Although it doesn’t really have a name, it functions pretty well. The assistant activates if you press the home button for a long time or say the magic words “OK Google”. This voice helper is as functional as Siri or Cortana.
So, Google is still an underdog on the smartphone market and we don’t expect anything miraculous from it. Although the Pixel XL has certain drawbacks, like sound performance, it still offers all the necessary features. The newest Android works great as well as the voice-assistant, so we can say for sure that this smartphone is a success for Google.
