Google Pixel is Google’s first fully home-produced phone, it required a committed team with an eye for detail and a love of blue.
Ever since 2010, google teamed up with some phone producing companies such as Samsung, Motorola, and LG to build phones that would serve as marquee devices for its mobile OS (Operating System), Android known as Nexus phones, these phones ran the latest Android version present at that time but the hardware was completely built and branded by these other companies.
After the Nexus 6P was launched with Huawei, five years later, the script was flipped by Google. They decided to build a new phone without any external partnerships or companies. Google will single-handedly engineer, design and sell it but a separate company would still assemble the device which is a task that HTC has taken.
To designing the Pixel, just as the phone would be named, would be like creating a phone for Goldilocks. It needed to have quality hardware without conceding its style. It had to be appealing to the public without backing the loyalists. And it necessarily needed to visually distinguish itself, In conclusion, it had to look just right.

The Google Pixel is a ground-breaking device, indicating the first proper venture into phone production by the search engine giant. And sincerely, google has done a fantastic job.
The Pixel is obtainable in two sizes – the smaller one which is reviewed here and a larger 5.5-inch Pixel XL, the pixel has one of the most superb cameras on any phone, alongside with a software experience that’s far better than any other Android device.
You have to pay a premium for these amazing features on this phone – this is obviously not a Nexus-priced device – but it’s distant from the first phone to cost some penny. And when it has become this nice, it becomes worth paying that little extra.
GOOGLE PIXEL – DESIGN
Google Pixel design is the thrilling part about the whole idea of the phone. I totally understand a lot of people dislike it completely, but for me, I find it perfectly serviceable. It isn’t as flamboyant as Samsung’s Galaxy S7, but much better than the latest series of iPhones.
The body of the pixel is made from metal and glass, it tapers down ever so faintly on the rear to help avoid any needless camera bumps. Below the camera sensor is a circular fingerprint sensor, and both are encased in a divisive glass panel that runs about a third of the way down the back. Some of my very good friends who are tech lovers dislike it, but I think it adds some flair, catching the light nicely.
Not like Apple, Google included a 3.5mm headphone jack – which was placed at the top of the phone but preferably for me, I would have love it at the bottom. Furthermore, Google has made use of a wide bezel above and below the screen similar to iPhone. If the space was utilized for a pair of front-facing speakers, it would have made more sense. Lets look forward to the next pixel to be produced perhaps this will come with it.
The sides are deeply chamfered, which will help the phone to fit comfortably in your hand. So far from my own experience, this is one of the coolest phones to hold, aided by the fact it isn’t overly thin.
Pixel is completely usable in just one hand, something that can’t be said for the larger Pixel XL. It is approximately the same size as an iPhone 7, just a little taller and marginally thicker.
GOOGLE PIXEL – DISPLAY
The 5-inch displays screen are becoming rare in the Android market, but many others provide the perfect mix of handiness and size. Yet, the problem apart from the absence of choice is that smaller phones are likely to to be hamstrung by weak components and a lack of features.
Appreciatively, this is not the case here. This is a 5-inch display phone with the insides of a larger device and that’s wonderful news.
The Pixel’s display is fantastic, comfortably among the best at this size. It’s an AMOLED panel, the same tech Samsung makes use of on their Galaxy series with a 1080p resolution. It’s not as high as the larger Pixel XL and its quad-HD panel, but as a result of its smaller size, you won’t really notice the difference.
The whole thing with regards to the screen is wonderful. Due to the fact that it’s AMOLED, there’s a lovely kick to the colours, yet saturation looks accurate.
Normally these types of display overblow reds and greens, but they look good here. Blacks, too, are deep and inky, although there’s a small grey tinge to the Pixel when it’s positioned side-by-side with the Pixel XL or a Samsung Galaxy S7.
Viewing angles are great, brightness is outstanding, and the auto-brightness is easily the best I have experienced on Android.
