The Pixel XL is the very first smartphone to be built almost completely by Google. Being a premium device, it has been packed with the high-end hardware. But more importantly, it features the all-new Google Assistant, which often becomes smarter than Siri and Cortana. In this latest Google phone review, you will find why it’s regarded as the best Windows phone on the current market.
Latest Google Phone Review: Design
There is nothing spectacular in the design of the Pixel XL. Like the other high-end smartphones on the market, it comes with the metal and glass body. However, the back cover comes with an odd, two-toned mix. It provides the device with a peculiar look. But on the bright side, the build quality and materials are outstanding. The strengthened Gorilla Glass 4 has the ability to protect the display from the significant damage of sudden bumps. Due to the heavily chamfered sides, the latest Google phone is really comfortable to hold.
Latest Google Phone Review: Display
The 5.5-inch AMOLED display is very impressive. It stuns us with the bright and punchy colors. It is really joyful to use on the bright outdoors. The sunlight legibility is really great. The screen is really great for watching movies, like Batman v Superman. You can see the dark scenes pretty comfortably. And it is incredibly sharp. Thanks to the high pixel density of 534 ppi, which is a way higher than the display of the iPhone 7.
Latest Google Phone Review: Camera
The 12.3-MP rear shooter is the best smartphone cameras on the market. We haven’t seen any phone shooter capturing more details than it. The color accuracy is incredibly high. Its performance in both low light and bright outdoor conditions is outstanding. In some cases, it can outperform the shooter of the Galaxy S7 Edge. The camera of Samsung’s flagship phone sometimes produce too bright photos. But you will not find such issue with the camera of the latest Google phone. In DXOMark’s camera test, it tops the list with 89 points.
Latest Google Phone Review: Performance
The Pixel XL comes with the Snapdragon 821 processor, which is more powerful than the 820 chip of the Galaxy S7. But in the Geekbench 4 multi-core test, Google’s smartphone scores 4,025 points, which is significantly less than the point of its rival (5,481). However, in daily usage, you will not find any negative impact. The device performs brilliantly running all the latest games with a stunning graphics and a sheer pace. All the apps are opened very quickly. And surfing online is a real pleasure due to the incredible smoothness of scrolling.
Latest Google Phone Review: Google Assistant
The Google Assistant is the improved voice AI system of the Cupertino company. It can do pretty much everything that Siri and Cortana do, like performing online searches and look for the nearby restaurants. However, it is faster than any other voice assistant on the market.
Latest Google Phone Review: Battery
With a moderate usage, the 3,450 mAh battery is able to last a day and a quarter. But if you are a power user, you will be charged to plug in the phone for charging at the end of the day. It happens due to the larger screen size and QHD resolution. In GSMArena’s endurance rating test, the battery lasts 78 hours, which is not a bad performance.
Latest Google Phone Review: The Verdict
If you are looking for the best phone on the market, the Google Pixel is the one to get. Its display is razor sharp. The hardware performance is incredible. But more importantly, it has the best phone camera on the market. However, if you focus on the aesthetic beauty, you should explore the market for better options.
