    Coool! This is sick as hell! I wanna get my hands on that Google Pixel too!
    Its whooping features are truly magnificent. I’d like to have one now.. :/

  2. I’d heard about the camera of Google Pixel being the best currently in the market. Looks like it just got confirmed. My current phone’s old now and had been comparing quite a few phones since past few days. I guess GPXL is the one I’m more keen on after all a traveler with interest in photography, definitely needs a real smart phone of which the battery can last really long. 🙂

    Very well written review!!

    It looks absolutely amazing and the pictures are fabulous. I have been with the same brand for years but now wanting to change this has pushed that along 🙂

  4. Wonderful review, nice to know about camera abilities.

  5. Wow, so many thoughts. This is interesting. I’d never heard of it before your post.

    I’m an iphone owner and I am sitting here kicking myself because I’ve never seen a 15 hour battery life ever! Sounds like a smart switch for the new year!

  7. Wow! The camera looks amazing and different better than the iPhone that I have!

  9. Your photos looks so amazing and clarity is so brilliant! This works wonderful for night captures!

  10. This is the first Google Pixel review I have read, thanks for sharing!

    What a great review!! I always want to know about camera abilities!! I love your photos as always ! Thanks for sharing with us 🙂

  12. I have said this time and again. When getting an Android device, get the one from Google or rather, manufactured under Google so that it has no bloatware. Unfortunately, the early models were not really good. But the company has done a fantastic job in the past couple of years so I am not surprised to see the quality of the photo and video as you posted. It is the standard now that all devices should give to be considered for use outside of normal texting, messaging or calls.

  13. I wonder how much does it cost in the market. Does the camera function better than iPhones? I have never heard about this phone. Perhaps, sooner this will be aired on televisions too just like Nokia, Oppo, and other brands of smartphones. Great reviews by the way. 🙂

    Love the review…
    I am also in love with the picture quality and the battery life..

  15. Great review. I am impressed with the photos captured by Giogle Pixel. Thanks for sharing.

    Hey prior to this post , I didn’t even consider a google phone but perhaps this one is worth a try. This is really good.

    Nowadays, it pays to have a phone that an take good photos and videos.

  17. Personally am impressed with the stunning photos captured by Google Pixel. Am planning to buy a new phone soon, now exploring which model to pick. Thanks for your great review shared here, it definitely helps 🙂 cheers, SiennyLovesDrawing

  18. The phone’s camera is certainly the best in the market for the price tag. However overall I do feel that this is priced slightly on the higher side.

    Comprehensive Review !!!
    Great Post !!!

  20. That’s pretty neat! Gotta love how they’re making even the smallest devices capable of such beauty in capture

    This is a great review! How wonderful that you were chosen to review it, that must be so exciting! I contemplating getting the Google Pixel when I was purchasing my last phone, this makes me wish I had just held out a little longer. The camera takes a stunning photo (that is one of my main reasons for choosing a phone!)

    Google Assistant sounds like a more advanced version of Siri, I’d be interested in a comparison of the two.

    I’m excited that there is finally a Smartphone that can hold its own against the Samsung and the IPhone, it might make them all work a little harder and bring out new, innovative ideas.

  22. neha says:

    A very balanced review..the features are really attractive. What about the sturdiness of the phone? I am actually looking to buy one but I am just not sure with my little one always banging it around 😀

  23. VERY informative post!

  24. Michelle says:

    Oh wow! I’ve never heard of Google Pixel yet. Might it be not available in the Philippines as of this writing? I’m not really sure, though. But with its specifications that are pretty competitive and its camera… The camera! I find its shots pretty amusing and amazing. Honestly, whenever I choose what phone to buy, I really make sure that it has a really good quality of the camera that can take keepsake, IG worthy photos. And I think Google Pixel really has a say when it comes to smartphones with good cameras.

    Honest Review !!!

    I am not techie. So I rely a lot on my husband to help me choose my gadgets. 😉 Thank you for sharing your thoughts about this. This is helpful for people like me. 🙂

  27. Mridula says:

    The pictures look really good and I like phones with long battery life!

  28. Laveena Sengar says:

    Wow. What an amazing review Indrani. Great work. I think Google is the it Brand. I personally am an android lover and if I can get such an amazing capture and videos on a phone then I am completely sold.

  29. Thank you so much for the very informative and insightful post! When I travel I make sure my camera is with me but this is definitely handy as a back-up or when you don’t feel like carrying a big camera. 🙂 Great review!

    great review. new electronics are always fun to play with this looks like a good one!

  31. Marge says:

    The phone sounds like an excellent blogging companion and I can’t believe how crisp the photos are, even the front photo. If I had to try another phone I definitely wouldn’t mind giving this a go. And the fact that you were able to use it for 15 hours had me floored. Most smart phones get battery drained easily you know.

  32. Megan says:

    Very interesting. Nice to read a view specifically focused on travel blogger’s and their needs for a phone. I have a Motorola Turbo Droid and I love my switch the Andriod but still not sure I’m sold on the Motorola. Thanks for the tips.

  33. Maria says:

    Hmm. This makes me curious about it even more. Well, a travel blogger’s phone must be really equipped with a powerful camera so it won’t be much of a hassle for them to carry so many stuff. I guess this will be one of the biggest competitors for the iPhone and the Galaxy phones. Can’t wait to see a sample of this phone!

  34. resolution of images and videos are amazing!!! and it is quadcore isnt it?? anyway it seems that it is a very fast smartphone! iphone and samsung have a strong competition !

  35. Wow, first I give you thumbs up for a well written review as I have nothing to ask after reading. I would love to have that phone too, hopefully there’s already available in the Philippines as I have not heard about it yet. The features are really captivating and interesting. I think it fits on my hand as well.

  36. Carolyn says:

    I had never heard about this phone. It looks easy to use and I am a big Google fan.

  37. Bhushavali says:

    I’m yet to lay my hands on a Google Pixel, but I’m reading tons of good reviews. The pictures have come out so well. Already saw them on ur FB pic updates during ur roadtrip. The video quality is stunning.

  38. This sounds good! I have had the Google Nexus for a while now and was quite happy with that but now that it is getting time to switch the Google Pixel definitely is scoring points!

  39. Joe says:

    Looks like a very useful piece of kit! Definitely something that is borne out by the video of Mysore Palace, which is of a very high quality indeed. And it was great to get to see Mysore Palace as well, which is a place I missed out on when I was in India!

  40. Katie says:

    I need a new phone so may need to look into this! Thanks for sharing, the photos look great!

  41. Thanks for this this great review on Google Pixel. Honestly I never heard of it, I’m very bad with tech. The clarity and zoom are impressive, keep up the good work.

    I have not updated with electronic products for years and I used to bring my DSLR camera whereever I go. It has becomes a burden to me, because it is too bulky. Google Pixel is a great replacement, and I love the HDR smart features and ability to capture HD videos.
