First glimpse of Google Pixel and Pixel XL

Finally Google brand Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones were launched. The launch event held in San Francisco made it clear that the Pixel smartphone has been presented as a rival to Apple’s iPhone. However, many experts believe that brands like Samsung will suffer more losses from this phone. We spent some time during the launch event google pixel And pixel xl Spent with smartphone. First glimpse: How did we like these phones? Let us tell you.
Nothing revolutionary has been done with the Pixel phones in terms of design. However, many users won’t even care about it. At first glance the design matches that of the iPhone. But like most Android phones, the Pixel XL has a better screen-to-body ratio than the iPhone 7 Plus. In such a situation, despite having a big screen, there is not much difficulty in using it.

There is a strange enthusiasm about blue color. But we did not like this color variant at all. The black color variant goes with our choice. And the silver color variant is also fine. However, it is our choice. Your choice may be something else also. Anyway, the blue color variant is not to be launched in India. In such a situation the question of likes and dislikes does not arise.


As Gadgets 360 had said in the month of August itself, Google Assistant will be the most important feature of the new Pixel smartphone. Think of Google Assistant like this… It is a combination of Now on Tap and Apple’s Siri which has a wealth of information collected by Google’s Knowledge Graph. In the presentation, Google informed about the ability of Assistant to be like Now on Tap. You can also ask the assistant to suggest a restaurant for lunch. We spent some time with this feature. You can activate the voice-based assistant by long pressing the home button. As expected, Google’s voice recognition is excellent and worked flawlessly. And on most occasions our questions also received correct answers.

It is clear from the variety of hardware products that Google has presented at the event that the company wants to make us comfortable in talking to our devices.

Some exclusive features are also provided in Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL which may become a cause of conflict with other companies in the future. It is not yet clear when a feature like Google Assistant will be introduced in the main Android project.


During the event, apart from the Assistant, Google also talked about the camera of the handset in detail. It is worth noting that unlike the strategy of Apple and Xiaomi, Google has used the same camera setup in both the phones. Google says that the difference between Pixel and Pixel XL is only in display and battery capacity. The company claims that the Pixel phone has got a camera with 89 DXOMark rating which is the highest for any smartphone. We do not want to say anything about the performance of the camera right now. It would be better to wait for the review for this. But we must say that the new camera app is quite fast.
