Has Google Made The Ultimate Android Phone?

Saturday, October 8th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Android, Smartphones, Uncategorized

Google is proudly showing off its fancy new Pixel phone. The smartphone is not cheap. It comes with a suggested price of $749 and aims to compete with the iPhone 7 and the Galaxy 7.


The phone comes is two sizes, the 5″ Pixel and the 5.5″ Pixel XL and three colors. Choose between black, silver, or blue.


It’s the first phone to come with Google Assistant built into the phone. Much like Siri and Cortana, Google assistant can search the Internet for you, set appointments, send messages, open apps, and generally serve as a personal assistant in your pocket.


Google is particularly proud of the camera. It calls it the best smartphone camera ever. (though I seem to recall Samsung calling the Galaxy 7 the best camera ever and Apple expressing the same opinion about the iPhone 7)

The camera takes 12.3 MP images and uses 1.55 μm pixels and a f/2.0 aperture. Larger pixels mean more accurate color, while the aperture gives better images in low light.


Users will also have unlimited storage for photos and video in the Google Cloud.


The phone has a glass aluminum body and also features a fingerprint reader for security. Thanks to the QuickSwitch adpaterr, transferring your info from your old iPhone or Android should be super-fast.


Like the Galaxy 7, the Pixel can also be used with VR goggles for an enhanced gaming and movie viewing experience. This phone works in conjunction with the Daydream View VR headset. Google is offering a free VR headset for those who pre-order the phone.

The only carrier with Pixel available for purchase is Verizon, but you can order the phone through Google and use it with any carrier you choose.
