With 5.5 inches screen size and an AMOLED display, the Google Pixel XL flaunts a superb pixel density of 534 ppi and a resolution of 1,440 x 2,560. A capacitive touch screen responds well to multi touch. This device has been very generously configured with two dual-core, Kryo processors which clocks upto a speed of 2.15 GHz and 1.59 GHz respectively and a chipset of Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996, which, along with 4GB RAM, makes multitasking and gaming a wonderful experience. The graphical interface is looked after by a GPU of Adreno 530.
Camera and storage
The Google Pixel XL comes with a 12MP primary camera which, along with LED Flash, Exposure compensation, ISO control, High Dynamic Range mode (HDR), etc. processes images of 4,000 x 3,000 pixels. The front camera too, follows close behind with an 8MP lens that is excellent for selfies and video calling. The device is fed with 32GB internal memory which cannot be expanded any further.
Battery and connectivity
The Google Pixel XL is powered by a 3,450mAh li-polymer, non-replaceable which keeps the device alive for long hours. In the connectivity department, the smartphone is loaded with single SIM that supports 4G, Wi-Fi 802.11, a/ac/b/g/n/n 5GHz, v4.2 bluetooth, A-GPS, Glonass, mobile hotspot, NFC and USB type C.
After the success of the Nexus series, Google is back with a bang with Pixel XL, which is a powerful device with a good pair of cameras. The excellent display properties would make the users fall in love with it. However, the device lacks little features at such high price. But if you have a craze of using the latest version of Android OS, do give it a check.
