Google's Pixel phone: Not much new, but still a standout

IT was reported that Huawei was first asked to do this for Google however they declined due to the lack of Huawei branding on the phone.

There has been a bit of polarizing opinions regarding Google's new Pixel phones.

Besides, Google's Smartwatches will also be arriving with the Android Wear 2.0 devices, which is now said to be making its debut along with the new hardware. The Pixel Launcher- built for Android 7.1, will feature Google's new Assistant, the new swipe up gesture to open up the app drawer and a new weather/date widget. A cable is the used to instantly swap the content. Google is hoping this new feature will convince more to swap their operating system, reported by Hot News.

But are they any good and are they worth buying? If you choose to jump on the Live Case, be prepared to wait as they are not expected to begin shipping until early November.

The release is different from your average Android developer preview because it brings to some other devices what was until now exclusive to the Google Pixel and Pixel XL phones. Nearly every change to Android 7.1 is a Pixel-supporting feature anyway, so users aren't missing much.

NYT says no libel, no retraction, no apology for Trump story
Crooks told the Times she was meeting Trump for the first time when he took her hand to shake it and would not let go. Trump repeatedly denied the allegations a half-dozen women have leveled against him just this week: "All false".


Although that's the only similarity the Pixel phones have with Apple's iPhone.

Well, the Google Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, and Pixel C Tablet are set for the Android 7.1 Nougat launch, just before the end of this month.

Besides the wide angle view landscape pictures look great on both devices but the Google Pixel XL has the edge here because it has better color saturation. As for the iPhone 7 Plus, you still get a dual-lens camera, but the LG V20 still beats it in terms of storage size and flexibility. This is a sleek and minimal way to protect the Pixel or XL.

Other Software: The Pixel runs a pure version of Android 7.1 called Nougat. Since Google Pixel lets user store as many and as big photos and videos, users should allow it.
