These are Google Pixel XL best features that end users might not know existed brought to you by you Sydney CBD Repair Centre Team.
The Pixel XL launched with Android 7.1 Nougat, runs Android 7.1.2 and was among the first to get Android Oreo. Going with that latest and greatest theme, it was also the first phone to get Google Daydream View VR headset powers.
Even if you’re not into VR, this means you’re getting top-of-the-line specs good enough for power-hungry gamers, and that’s fantastic news for anyone who wants a fast phone years down the road – yes, even with the Google Pixel 2 out in the world.
METAL AND GLASS CONSTRUCTION
Google called the Pixel XL design ‘bold’ during its initial announcement, noting that the back of the phone’s glass-and-metal makeup gives it “personality and character.”
If that sounds like a backhanded compliment, it’s kind of deserved. It’s almost as if Google heard that people like metal phones, but also like glass phones, so it decided to throw in both materials.
The Google Pixel XL further proves why AMOLED displays look the best for smartphones, thanks to its colorful and bright screen that outclasses LCD panels every time.
It’s vivid and ready for virtual reality on a budget, the latter being one key reason we’d suggest you upgrade from the normal-sized, 1080p Google Pixel. If you’re into VR, big phones and more battery life, this one’s for you. If not, save your money.
NATIVE GOOGLE ASSISTANT
Google Assistant is your personal AI buddy that’s one graduating class ahead of classmates Siri, Cortana and Google Now for voice commands. It holds a two-way conversation, and actually understands context.
Asking “Okay Google. When is the next Presidential Debate?” brings back a correct response in the US. Asking “what channel is it on” gives you an answer, too, despite the use of the word “it.”
FULLY SUPPORTED BY GOOGLE
The Google Pixel XL shows that it’s ready for the future with Android 7.1 Nougat, along with the promise of operating system updates for the next two years and security updates for three years. Case in point, it already has Android 7.1.2, which is mostly comprised of bug fixes.
Its minimalist approach to the home screen and the notifications shade is an unassuming contrast to the depth (and real focus) of Google Assistant.
