The “Verizon Exclusive” marketing is doubly confusing when you consider the phone will work on any USA carrier.
If you buy a Google Pixel or Pixel XL from Verizon Wireless, you’ll be at the mercy of the carrier when it comes to future Android updates. In short, the Pixel and Pixel XL are far from being the flawless phones you can dream of. But the former device ultimately failed to pick up steam, along with the Nexus line of smartphones launched in 2011. Google claims it is the highest rated phone camera, with a 89 DxOMark Mobile score.
Tech giant Google unveiled its new smartphones Pixel and Pixel XL, the first phones that were conceptualized, designed, engineered and tested in-house. But the one fantastic thing about buying an Android phone straight from Google is that it gets immediate upgrades to the latest version of Android. Of course, these may be small changes, but they can play a huge role in luring more users to the handsets.
Rick Osterloh, said “The camera was the best available on this smart phone!” It has a 3.5 mm headphone jack and a choice of 32GB or 128GB internal storage.
Google promises a spectacular camera and unlimited online storage for phones at full resolution.
Google Pixel features a 5-inch FHD display that is powered by a Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset coupled with an Adreno 530 GPU. There two phones are the first ever devices exclusively created and developed by google, thus proudly carrying the Google brand name. To that end, it positioned the new devices as high-end phones with appropriately high-end prices: $649 and $769, respectively. The Pixel that Google sells directly is fully compatible with Verizon’s network, so you can just purchase that way to avoid potential headaches entirely. Yes, you have guessed it correctly, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P can no longer be seen on the Google Store, which pretty much proves that the company is no longer going to be supporting this brand name any longer.
