Google remains dedicated to pursuing innovation despite its massive contributions in the digital world. Now, it's extending its boundaries by introducing its own line of smartphones - the Google Pixel series. The first smartphone of this range, the Google Pixel, boasts the following great specs and features.
The Google Pixel features a smooth glass-aluminum chassis that looks elegant, making it one of those smartphone that you will be proud to show off. Looks-wise, it’s not far behind popular flagship phones such as the iPhone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S7, both of which offer a sleek, solid finish. In term of display, the Pixel smartphone comes with a 5-inch display and has a palm-friendly dimension of 143.84x69.54x8.58 mm. Although it’s larger than the competition, its depth of 7.31 mm at the base makes it easy to hold in the hand. Aside from that, it has an ergonomic design, with easy-to-grip curves to make it easy to hold and handle.
When it comes to snapping photos, the Google Pixel excels at capturing photos with great quality; thanks to its 12.3-MP rear camera which is among the highest-rated ever on the popular photography website - DxO. Coupled with fast shutter speeds, the Google Pixel's camera app processes photos quickly. Also, you won't have any issues capturing fast-moving subjects, say a cat, as the smartphone's sensor sports an autofocus that minimizes blurriness. As for selfies, the Google Pixel won't disappoint since its 8MP front camera is very easy-to-use; simply twist it twice in your hand, while repeating this motion will enable the rear camera.
In terms of hardware performance, the Google Pixel’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 delivers great results despite tackling whichever task you throw at it. Skipping in between multiple apps is quick and easy while navigating on the home page offers a smooth and fluid experience. You can also run any apps or play mobile games with smoother performance than similar handsets on the market. Additionally, the Google Pixel has a 4GB of RAM to optimize the device's efficiency and run demanding tasks with no issues.
As for the operating software, the Google Pixel runs a state-of-the-art Android 7.1 Nougat which can be upgraded to 7.1.2. With that, expect a clean interface with five app icons in the tray below the screen. To access all your apps, simply swipe up.
The Google Pixel is housing a 2770-mAh battery which complements well with its top-of-the-line processor, giving you an impressive battery life. This saves you the trouble of rushing from time to time to find a power outlet to recharge your device. Also, a 15-minute charge on the Google Pixel will give you up to seven hours of usage, which makes the device handy when you’re rushing to leave the office or surviving Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius battle you have planned for your journey home.
