Google Pixel Review

Score: 80.2 / 100

Google Pixel is a totally amazing device released some years ago, in 2016, counting with a very powerful Quad-Core CPU running at 2.15 GHz, a quite big 5" display, a 12.3 megapixels back side camera and an 8 mega-pixels front facing camera. But it's time to get into much more detail.

Google offers this phone in 3 color options: black, gray and white. About its aspect, this phone is majorly built with Aluminum and Glass . Google made a really good job making the Google Pixel weight just 5.04 oz. This phone is a compact phone, considering it presents a 5" screen and it's just 5.66 inches long and 2.74" wide. Being just 0.34" thick,this device is very thin and practical.

Google decided to sell this cellphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 MSM8996 Pro system chip, which holds a very fast Quad-Core processing unit clocking at 2150 MHz and a large 4 GB of RAM memory. A good advantage of this cellphone is its huge 128 GB internal memory and though it doesn't come with an external SD slot, it it is more than enough to install tons of applications, games, pictures and videos without worrying about how much memory is left.

The Google Pixel has an absolutely amazing 1080 x 1920 (Full HD) 5-inches screen, which makes it impossible to even distinguish the pixels that compose the screen.

The Google Pixel provides wi-fi connectivity (and it can provide it to other devices around, acting as a modem), LTE-A 4G high bandwidth connection type and also HSPA+ data connection (a slower 4G technology) and 3G fast connection type, over HSDPA technologies. This phone uses a Nano SIM card to connect to GSM networks.

This phone has two cameras, a 12.3 megapixels back facing camera and an 8 MP front camera. this phone's back facing camera lens has a maximum F2 aperture so it can shoot very nice pictures even in dark environments. It can also capture videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 frames per second, and HD 1280x720 slow-motion videos up to 240 fps.

The Google Pixel also features lots of great features such as Fingerprint Sensor, NFC, Bluetooth (provides communication with other bluetooth devices, computers, and accessories) and GPS Localization, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This cellphone comes with an awesome 2770 mAh Li - Ion non-replaceable battery that can keep this cellphone running for many hours without charging it. An issue to take into consideration is that this device's battery isn't removable so you can't change it when it begins to lose its charge, although with its 2770 mAh you will probably buy a new phone before it happens.

This cellphone is being sold for around 299 dollars, not so cheap for a cellphone this level. No matter whether you need a phone to play tons of games, want a social phone, want a work phone or love photography, this phone is a very good choice for you. This phone comes with SIM tool, C-C cable (USB 2.0), USB-C 18W adaptor with USB-PD, A-C cable (USB 3.0), In box promos and collateral and Quick switch adapter.
