That’s understandable, especially if your location is one of the few places where the smartphone duo has yet to be released. Both Google Pixel and Pixel XL are already available in the US, released in stores last October 20.
Google Pixel is also available from Verizon in the US, from EE in the UK, and from Telstra or JB Hi-Fi in Australia.
At the moment, however, some models of the Google phones are not in stock in the US. These include the Pixel 32GB Silver, Pixel XL 32GB Silver, and Pixel XL 128GB Black. What is available are the Pixel 32GB Black, Pixel 128GB Silver, Pixel 128GB Black, and Pixel XL 32GB Black.
The Pixel XL 128GB Silver, on the other hand, has a 3 to 4-week waiting period. But it is worth the wait.
The duo is powered by Android Nougat, and features AI smarts, market-leading 12.3 MP rear-facing camera, and Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor. Unlike other Android devices, both Google phones don’t come with lots of bloatware.
So it’s not that bloated, which spells good news to anyone who thinks being pre-empted with their choice of applications is a crime.
With Android 7.1 Nougat as an operating system, both devices have tougher security measures, enhanced notifications, has a new split-screen mode, support for the Vulkan API, and other nifty features, such as Data Saver that saves your data subscription when on mobile data or when Wi-Fi is slow.
Word has it that Google’s phones make a worthy competition against the iPhone 7 in more ways than one. This is especially true if you apply the tips and tricks for a better experience. This is guaranteed to make Google Pixel and Pixel XL so much better than Apple’s best weapon. source:neurogadget
