Google Pixel XL hands on review

Google’s 5.5-inch Nexus 6P successor. You don’t have to shop in the big-and-tall section of stores to want the Google Pixel XL. It’s a powerful phablet, at a still-reasonable size, and it’s made by Google.

This 5.5-inch Android phone is the successor to last year’s Nexus 6P, as Google is altogether ditching the affordable, developer-focused Nexus brand in favor of the Pixel XL and smaller 5-inch Pixel.

You’re getting top-of-the-line specs, but a noticeable price bump. It once again has a full-metal body and 2K resolution screen, but debuts a blazing-fast Snapdragon 821 processor with 4GB of RAM inside.

Nujad Bolivar says:

What about tap to wake or ambient display?

Ovie Onoriose says:

Damn the only thing it needs is dual front speakers and ip67/68 and it’d be just about perfect.

It seems like many Android users have already written the Pixel off.

In their minds, the Pixel is either too expensive, too much like an iPhone, or they’ve decided they just don’t like something trivial about the appearance (the bezels). There’s a lot of cynicism in the community with a heavy emphasis on value first. It’s a big reason premium Android smartphones fail: Many Android users don’t want a premium device, they want the best bang for their buck.

The Pixel, unfortunately, may be the victim of this mindset. It doesn’t matter that the camera is the best smartphone camera out there according to DXOMark, or that the processor is top-of-the-line line on the Android side of the fence, and that Google Assistant could be a groundbreaking feature that is miles ahead of Google Now and Siri. If Android users don’t see the most return for their money, many won’t buy.

Michael P says:

I’m not impressed with the design, why are many phones trying to look very similar to each other?

It has a larger battery, but it does not have a longer battery life due to the bigger screen.

Jaimen Maisuria says:

Expensive, no front facing stereo speakers, fugly design (subjective), huge ass bezels, no water or dust proofing, no wireless charging… Huge long-term Nexus fan but I’ll be holding onto my Nexus 6P for a little while longer – so disappointed with this years offering!

Evelyn Kim says:

Would be nice if water resistant.

Chí Mạnh Nguyễn says:
