So today I received my Google pixel XL. My first impressions are that the phone has a decent build quality. Interesting it is much lighter than my iPhone 7 plus. I still have not got used to the fingerprint reader on the back. I’m so used to unlocking my iPhone with the home button. This is the first product I’ve ever recorded an unboxing off too. Although my lighting sucked.
I was able to take a few photos and compare them with my iPhones. I do have to say the camera is pretty Sharp. Here are a couple examples photos taken in from both phones.
I did no editing or adjustments. The iPhone seems a little Overexposed in each photo.
There also are a couple Easter eggs in the new OS nougat. One of which I took a video of which was in Google Assistant. If you say “Ok Google I’m feeling lucky” it will launch you into a quiz show.
Another interesting feature I found out about is that it saying “Ok Google” unlocks the device if it determines it is your voice. One problem here is that you can cause your self issues if you watch a video of yourself saying the key words…
So far so good. I’ll post another review in a day or so after I get more time with the device. I’m still waiting on my Daydream VR as well to play with that.
Want to know something about the Google Pixel. Send me a comment and I’ll try to answer them either in the comments or via another blog post.
