Checking out the Google Pixel smartphone? Since launching last fall, the Pixel has become one of the hottest mobile devices of 2017 -- CNET called it the best phone on the market for anyone not looking for a larger screen (in which case, CNET liked the Pixel XL). The Google Pixel is ergonomically designed and loaded with features, so we're not surprised by its critical acclaim. Here, we'll review the Pixel's top three features that provide separation from the crowd. Read on to learn more about the state-of-the-art Google Pixel smartphone.
The Pixel's most notable feature is its unlimited pixel storage capacity thanks to Google Cloud.
Another great feature is the built-in Google Assistant. Similar to Apple's Siri or Samsung's Bixby, the Google Assistant can easily process voiced commands and search queries to get directions, look up recipes, search for answers, send text messages and more. The Google Assistant is also surprisingly capable of conversational responses for certain queries. Even more impressive is that Google Assistant uses machine learning technology to personalize itself to your interests and needs the more you use it.
Our third-favorite feature is the Google Pixel's camera. In addition to recording video in 4k resolution, this 12.3-megapixel camera captures images that are vibrant and crystal-clear, even at extremely close range. The front-facing camera is also top-notch, with selfie-friendly settings to soften skin tones without images looking airbrushed.
Of course, there are many reasons to love the Google Pixel. It's smartly designed, features a fast processor and has a crisp, colorful screen. Take our quiz to see if now might be a good time for you to switch to a Pixel.
