A lot of people have mixed reviews regarding the famous Google pixel smartphone. Made and designed by Google, everyone had high expectations before it launched. Unfortunately, not everyone acknowledged its presence due to the excessive price and the choice of design. Whether your dreams were crashed or you’re still reliving the good old nexus days, today I will show you why the google pixel might just be the best smartphone up to date.

It has almost been four months since its initial release, meanwhile, consumers have had mixed reviews regarding the price they pay, for the device they get. The device packed a 5-inch AMOLED display while the XL version had a larger  5.5-inch screen with better resolution. Not that you would notice the difference.

Both versions of the pixel come equipped with a (Qualcomm MSM8996) Snapdragon 821 quad-core processor and an Adreno 530 GPU, 4gb of ram, a fingerprint sensor and the all famous camera that was rated to have the highest DxOMark Mobile score.

What people do not understand is that there is way more to the pixel than it seems. At first glance, a person might start comparing it with the galaxy S7 and conclude that it is an unworthy phone as it does not have waterproofing or an expandable storage. If anyone paid close attention, Google offers unlimited storage for your photos and videos if you’re a pixel owner. That’s right, unlimited. I wonder which micro-sd card beats that. Imagine all your files and photos stored in one place, forever. As for waterproofing, most modern phones come equipped with a certain level of water resistance, including the pixel smartphones.

To really understand how good the pixel phone is, you actually have to use it for a while. At first glance, it might not look like much, but through time, it simply is the best smartphone experience you will ever get. To break it down to you, I will mention some of the features that influenced me to believe that this is primarily the best phone out there.


The first and far most are the clean user interface. If you have ever used stock android before, I’m pretty sure you know exactly what I’m talking about. From the icons to the notification bar, everything is just flawless. I don’t know about you but I sure do hate junk on my phone. The other neat feature is the google assistant which is only available on android nougat. Google assistant may seem like a gimmick but she really is outstanding. I can’t imagine a smartphone without the google assistant improving my day to day life. From reminders to activities to all the information I require.

Google has really stepped up its game when it comes to stock android. However, the pixel phones also perform great in the hardware department. Equipped with a 12mp camera that has a f/2.0 aperture, the quality of any photo taken is breathtaking particularly in low light where most smartphones struggle to perform. Not only is the camera great, but the phone is very snappy when it comes to multitasking.

As I stated earlier, the Google pixel smartphone is more of a companion than a first eye pleaser. The only phone I can compare it to would be the iPhone 7, as they come really close in terms of user experience.

Battery life is also good, thanks to the 3450MaH battery. With quick charging, the old overnight charging days are over. It is remarkable how fast this phone charges. In 10 minutes I get enough charge to go to work and catch the movies without running out of juice.

I’m not saying we should all buy the Google pixel, as everyone has their own different preferences. Though, for you to see what this phone really offers, you really really have to use it as a daily driver. I guarantee your teeth will fall out.
