Android version and market relevance

In the short description of the new smartphone Google Pixel XL we point out the key characteristics for each smartphone. Firstly, it is an actuality in the market. This model was announced by the company Google in October 2016. Secondly, this concept of adequacy in the market at the moment. We determine this according to the software version on which the smartphone is running and updating. So, “out of the box” Google Pixel XL works on Android 7.1 Nougat and updated to Android 8. And this is very good, we advise you to pay attention to this smartphone and to study its characteristics in more detail.

Of the features that not all Android smartphones have today, we separately single out support for two SIM cards. And we are very, very sorry, but Google Pixel XL does not support two SIM cards, so this smartphone has one minus more than other similar ones smartphones with support for two SIM cards.

Screen, body and battery

Briefly describe the screen and the shell of the smartphone. Google Pixel XL received AMOLED-screen measuring 5.5 inches. This is a good average among smartphones, with this size it is still convenient to hold in your hands and much more information is placed on the screen. It′s more pleasant to watch movies or TV shows, play games and chat in chats.

The thickness of the smartphone Google Pixel XL is 8.5 mm. This model, you can call “fat”, because today many smartphones with thinner cases are already being manufactured. And in such dimensions the engineers managed to put the battery on 3 450 mAh, which is the average value in the market.

Main camera and selfie camera

There is an ordinary non-dual camera installed on 12.3 MP, located on the back of your smartphone.

And on the front of the smartphone we see a camera on 8 MP. Today this is a weak camera. If you are looking for a good camera phone to take pictures of yourself, then be sure to look selfie smartphones in our catalog.

Processor and Internal Memory

After a lot of leaks, we now know all characteristics of the Google Pixel XL. The smartphone received 4-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 821. RAM is built-in 4 GB.

But the most interesting is the built-in memory of 32 GB and plus another option for 128 GB. But memory cards, unfortunately, with this smartphone, you can not use, because the manufacturer did not provide for them a slot.

Price for Google Pixel XL: buy or not to buy?

Price Google Pixel XL at the start of sales was $880. A smartphone with this price level got into the price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500” and got a good processor, a large touch screen, and the front camera is not too cool with a very weak main camera.

If you want to buy Google Pixel XL, you can choose any online store or offline electronics store, the main thing is to have a guarantee for the smartphone and the desired version of the model you have chosen.

Before buying, if you have the opportunity, it is better to hold the phone in your hands, check the screen, the quality of the photo and video, look at the smoothness and speed of the interface. Never buy a “cat in a bag”, be sure to check everything before buying. Today, good smartphones are worth a lot of money, so it′s better to spend an extra ten minutes to eventually buy the model that will work well one or two years and help you in everything.
