Today we get to talk about something really special, the Google Pixel. As a tech, entrepreneur, business person and technology aficionado, the Google Pixel hits all the marks for me. Its professional, lightning fast, comes with a ton of useful features and never leaves you feeling like there’s something missing. If you find yourself looking for a new phone anytime soon, I highly suggest you read further!

First off, the camera is what everyone seems to be constantly raving about. The Google Pixel is definitely well equipped in that area, but I’ll be honest, phone cameras have never been a huge deal breaker for me. With that said, there have been plenty of times when I’ve taken a photo and been very impressed with the clarity, picture quality, sharpness and color density. Photos aside, what will really make you say “wow” is when you go to take a video. The Google Pixel is the first phone or video camera even, that I’ve ever seen record in 60 frames per second. Let me tell you, it’s amazing. The difference between seeing video in 30 frames or less, and 60 frames is massively different. The smoothness of the video is instantly recognizable and turns the quality dial of every video you take up, by a lot. The only downside to taking video is this kind of quality, is that it takes up a lot more storage space. The phone can also shoot in 1080p ( the newest Google Pixel 2 can shoot in 4k ) which also takes up a lot of storage space as well. 1080p and 60 frames a second makes for some incredible video, you’ll have to see it for yourself to really understand how much better it comes out.
I got the 128Gb version of the Google PIxel, and worrying about storage space is a thing of the past. I download every audiobook, picture, video, song and just about everything else and I haven’t gotten anywhere near the limit of my storage. Everyone’s experience with storage is going to be different because we all download different things at different intervals, but with this much space in your pocket I highly doubt your experience will be much different than mine!

The Google Pixel comes equipped with a fingerprint scanner that has the ability to keep track of more than one finger. Its locked on the back of the phone VS. the front like the iPhone has, and I have come to love that about it. The position of the finger scanner makes it so as you’re getting the Google Pixel out of your pocket, your finger naturally is already in the position of the scanner so you unlock it as you’re drawing it upwards to look at it. We’re talking about saving you a mere moment in time, but its just so fluid and smooth feeling that you can help but love it. Google did a great thing when they put the fingerprint scanner in that position, I hope that never changes!
The speaker are on the bottom of the phone, and they sound pretty good. Unless you use your phone as your boombox, I never really saw a huge deal with the speaker system on a phone, aside from simply being loud enough to hear your ringer or alarm, which the Google Pixel is. I connect to an external speaker either with the headphone jack ( yes, it has a headphone jack! ) or using the bluetooth pairing a lot, and it handles that very well and fine. If you use your phone as a boombox, I would recommend you get yourself a bluetooth speaker system as well, listening to songs or other audio on your phones built in speakers should only be a last resort!
Since the Google Pixel is built by Google, you can be sure you’re going to get the best kind of support and updates from Google. The Pixel is always on the bleeding edge of operating systems, and at the time of writing this the operating system was on Oreo. The phone is overpowered with its huge Snapdragon 821 processor and 4Gb of ram, so the operating system experience of the phone is never choppy and always smooth. I have had the phone for over a year now, and sometimes I’ll have a ton of different programs running, 10 different google chrome tabs and am switching back and forth between all of them in rapid fire mode, still smooth, never any kind of lag whatsoever. It’s the first and only phone I have ever used that handles multitasking and effortlessly as it does.
If Google keeps this level of quality up with the phones they put out in the future as they have done with this Google Pixel, they have me as a lifetime subscriber. I’m honestly so constantly impressed with what this Pixel can do, that even after a year of having it I find myself wanting to resist getting a new phone for as long as possible. I love everything about it, its speed, lack of bloatware when you get it, storage space, battery life, and everything else you can think of to even talk about. Google, great job. If you, the customer, are looking to switch phones any time in the near future, I would instantly recommend this Google Pixel and I would wager you’ll be as impressed and happy with it as I am.
