Review for Google Pixel

Google’s very own Pixel phones are officially here. Although the Nexus phones were from Google as well, these are not manufactured in partnership with other smartphone companies like before. It’s coming from Google directly with its own apps, services and integration. However, whether it’s good compared to the other flagship smartphones is a completely different story. Here, we will discuss just that and also find out the Google Pixel South Africa price.

5.0-inch AMOLED Display

The phone will be available in two different sizes and the Google Pixel is the smaller one with a 5.0-inch screen showing 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution. Most of the latest smartphones nowadays are not really showing anything Google Pixel Price South Africaunique when it comes to design but Google Pixel is slightly different. The back side offers a mix of glass-aluminum body that gives the phone a good grip. There is a fingerprint scanner on the back that can give users access to their notifications quickly or unlock the phone with Pixel Imprint. It will be running Android OS 7.1 Nougat right when you pick up the phone and will also the built-in Google Assistant. It’s the first phone to include this feature. If you are after a big phone, there is the Google Pixel XL or Motorola Moto X Style you can try without waiting for the Google Pixel release date South Africa.

Surprisingly Good Camera

None of the previous Google Nexus phones were really popular because of its camera but things are about to change with the Google Pixel. The Google Pixel packs a 12-megapixel camera on the back with laser autofocus and phase detection while the front camera is an 8-megapixel one. This camera received 89 score from DxOMark which is the highest received by any phone so far. Google will also offer 24/7 built-in live support for its users via chat or phone. If you are interested to check out some of the other popular smartphones with good cameras which are in the same pricing range as the Google Pixel South Africa price, there is the iPhone 7 Plus or Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 Quad-core Processor

While most of the latest flagship devices are packing Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, this one is packing a Google Pixel South Africa PriceQuad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor paired with 4GB of RAM. There are two different storage options to choose from: 32GB and 128GB. One of the disappointing part of this phone is its battery. Its only 2770mAh in size which doesn’t sound good enough considering the specs inside. However, you do get fast charging. Other notable features are: dust and water resistance, USB Type-C connector and fast battery charging. There are three interesting colors to choose from if you are eager to wait for the Google Pixel release date South Africa: Really Blue, Quite Black and Very Silver.

Price of the Google Pixel in South Africa, South Africa

Google has been releasing its own branded phones in partnership with third-party manufacturers since 2010 under its “Nexus” series. However, the company decided to change things this year and going for a new series titled as “Pixel”. There were rumors about Google working on two new phones and now we have some more details that can give us an idea about one of the phones which is the Google Pixel. Let’s take a look at the Google Pixel South Africa price first before we get to more details. It’s expected to cost about 7800 to 9200 R. Now let’s see if it will be a good idea to wait for the Google Pixel release date South Africa or not.

5-inch Full HD Display

There is not much to look forward to design-wise. From what we have seen in the leaked images, it will be a plain Google Pixel Release Date South Africalooking phone featuring 5-inch screen showing 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. The back side includes two-tone design featuring glass and metal frame which doesn't look too attractive in the leaked images but we have to wait for the official announcement to get real images. Just like the Google Nexus 6P and LG Google Nexus 5X, there will be a fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone. The headphone jack will be top mounted which means you don’t have to worry about Google going Apple iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus and losing your headphone jack. Other than these, we don’t know much about the design which means we have to wait for the Google Pixel release date South Africa to learn more.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 Processor

Most of the flagships released in 2016 packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and the Google Pixel is no different. The phone will be packing this quad-core 64bit processor clocked at 2.0GHz and it will be paired with 4GB Google Pixel South Africa Priceof RAM which means you can expect a smooth Android Nougat 7.0 operating system experience.

Google branded smartphones are popular for its smooth Android experience and exclusive Android features so it will be interesting to see what the phone has to offer.

2770mAh Battery

Battery life can be a deal breaker when it comes to smartphones and the upcoming Google Pixel is expected to be packing a 2770mAh battery. As most of the phones are aiming for minimum 3000mAh, it doesn’t sound promising. The phone will also include 12 or 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel selfie camera.
