GOOGLE ON THE RACE

Here is the true iPhone opponent, Google Pixel. At Google, no effort was spared in developing the best operating system Android 7.1 Nougat, applied to a cellular phone which has enormous positive features and very few negatives.

Shining, inside the glass and metal case, is the best cell phone camera, ever: 12 megapixel, 2.0 aperture and 1,55μm (micrometer, one millionth of a millimetre). Add it an optimization in real-time image processing and, all pictures will be amazing, even at night.

Storage for these true monuments is no problem.

Even with the basic 32GB model, besides a common Wi-Fi and Bluetooth communication, it also carries USB-C connectivity and unlimited storage in Google's Cloud.

Operating system Android 7.1 Nougat got implemented without the resource of extras or confused applications, making the device surprisingly functional, simples and easy to use.

And, then, there is the assistant. A personal assistant, for real, with which you can talk (yes, it answers back) and discuss about your personal agenda, as it also manages other applications like maps or calendars.

Being Google, the giant it is, this assistant gets more efficient according to it's usage, since it stores your personal data, inside the technological company universe, acquired day after day.

Simple, nice and elegant, at design level, Pixel looses nothing for its opponents. It doesn't win nothing, though.

The phone is built in metal and glass. Almost, humble.
At sight remains the cameras, flash, image sensor and the ultra-fast finger print sensor for faster activation and blocking, as it happens with all the opponents.

Google Pixel stands of with a 5 inch screen and its "bigger brother", Pixel XL, 5,5 inches, both Full-HD (1080 and 1440p, respectively).

The battery shows very pleasant functional levels. With a mere 60% consumption, after an exhaustive 12 hours usage. Also the access for eventual repairs is very much more simple than the one of its opponents.
