Google Pixel XL

 

Many have questioned Google's reasoning for taking the direction it has with the Pixel XL. Last year's Nexus 6P was a great phone at a great price. The Pixel line isn't about value, however; the focus here is on sheer quality. The Nexus phones, as a...

Google Pixel XL review

 

The Google Pixel XL is full of innovation, but how does its audio and video stack up against the competition?

Debuts latest Android Nougat OS ; Clean, slick and efficiently stripped-back interface ; Google Assistant is impressive ; Sharp, punchy and detailed screen ; Comprehensive, high-quality camera

Sound quality is uncompetitive ; Not fully waterproof

The Pixel XL impresses with innovation, exclusive features and a pure Android experience, even if the sound quality isn’t the best

Google Pixel and Pixel XL Hands-on Review: is the Pixel perfect?

 

We got our grubby little hands on the latest handsets from Google. They're expensive, impressive and very promising

Great specs ; Fast charging ; Claimed leading camera

More expensive than previous ; Google phones ; Design a little uninspired

Google Pixel XL review: Android's new heavyweight champion

 

Google is finally taking the smartphone fight seriously, launching two new handsets with one simple message: Pixel, Phone by Google. The Pixel XL is the most accomplished phone that's come from Google. The dabs of consumer refinement that Pixel has...

Great build quality and design, great camera, good battery life, uncluttered pure Android experience - with extras, unlimited photo storage

No microSD card slot, price, camera has some white balance issues

The Pixel XL is the most accomplished phone that's come from Google. The dabs of consumer refinement that Pixel has applied makes the Nexus programme feel like beta testing. And Google loves beta testing, so in many ways the Pixel is the result of...

Google Pixel XL review

 

UPDATE: Live Cases put to the test - Google's first phone is a lot more important than it looks...

Fast camera that takes quality snaps ; As slick and streamlined as Android gets

Only average battery life ; Marmite school of design ; No standout features

Understated looks and a focus on software over top-spec hardware hide what an important phone this is - even if hardware geeks won't be blown away

Google Pixel XL review

 

The iPhone 7 killer made by Google

One of the best phone cameras around ; Streamlined Android software ; Google Assistant is promising

More expensive than a Nexus phone ; Peculiar design and no always-on screen ; No stereo speakers or waterproofing

The Pixel XL features top-of-the-line specs to introduce Android 7.1 Nougat to the world. This VR-capable phone has a fast processor, smart AI software and a superb camera, all sandwiched into a funky design.

Google Pixel Phone and Pixel XL review: Smartphone camera perfection, until the Pixel 2?

 

A fantastic camera inside the blandest phone around – Google's Pixel phone is great, but the Pixel 2 might be a more worthy successor

Fantastic camera ; Has the latest version of Android ; Fast performance

Dull design ; No dust- or water-resistance

Throw in contract prices that will set you back at least £50-per-month, on top of a hefty fee up-front, and it appears Google has shot itself in the foot. I'd be tempted to bump it up a star if the price ever comes down – but right now, there are...

Google Pixel XL review

 

Google pulled the covers off its newest smartphone creations - the Pixel and the Pixel XL - at an event in London on October 4th. The new devices marks a departure from the Nexus line that has served the company well for so long, bringing high-end...

While the Pixel XL is an attractive phone (if you can get used to the glass section) with decent combination of hardware and software, we can't help but feel a bit disappointed. It's very similar to the much cheaper Nexus 6P and OnePlus 3. You can get...

Google Pixel XL Review: In Depth

 

Google Pixel XL review: The larger of Google's new smartphones, the Pixel XL combines powerful hardware & software. We put the Pixel XL through it's paces.

Exceptional performance ; Clean user experience ; Top notch camera ; Stunning display

No microSD expandability ; Lacklustre speaker setup ; Chunky design ; Expensive

Google has poured what it considers to be the best it can offer into the Pixel XL and the higher resolution display does lead us to believe that this is the real star over the standard.
