Google Pixel XL review, price and features


Google Pixel XL was launched recently along with Pixel. The phone is now available from Flipkart in India. In this article, we will examine the features of Google Pixel XL with special reference to design and specifications.

Google Pixel XL look and feel

The design of Google Pixel XL is a mash-up of the original design of the likes of Apple, Samsung, and HTC. The front side is manufactured using glass with a lot of space above and below the display. The display offers 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4.

The sensor window is located at the center and is concealed on the Quite Black version. The rear and sides comprise a single metal frame. However, you will find a large patch of glass on the upper rear to enable antennas to work without being blocked.

The camera is seen flushed on the back. The phone is thicker on the top. Hence, it gives a wedge shape. Even though Google Pixel XL is little top-heavy, tech enthusiasts have used it easily. You will find power and volume buttons on the right side. However, its placement is bit awkward. The tray on the left side enables you to insert a single Nano-SIM. However, microSD cards are not supported. Check the official website for all the details.

Google Pixel XL features headphone port

Like Apple, Google has not ditched the headphone port. You can locate in on the top. The USB Type-C port is located on the bottom side in between two grilles. The design looks similar to that of Le 2.

On the whole, the Google Pixel XL looks too bulky. According to tech geeks, they are better comfortable with Google Pixel instead of using bulky Pixel XL. Even if you opt for Pixel, you will not lose many features.

Talking about the software segment, Google Pixel XL ships with a Pixelized version of Android with a custom launcher and numerous tweaks.

Google Pixel XL specifications

The handset is equipped with a Snapdragon 821 processor, Adreno 530 graphics, 4GB RAM, up to 128GB storage. The Android doesn’t occupy huge space like other competitors since you will have 29.7GB at your disposal.

If you would like to buy Google Pixel XL, you need to invest for 128GB internal storage since there is a lack of expansion via microSD card.
