Google Pixel XL was the Best Smartphone of 2017. The good news is another flagship smartphone is coming from Google successor to Pixel smartphone. During discussion at Mobile World Congress 2017 in last week , Rick Osterloh- Google senior Vice president of Hardware told Android pit:”You can count on a successor this year ,even if you don’t hear a date from me now”.
Rick Osterloh- confirms the pixel phone is Premium ,of course How Premium?? will be the big talking point . After all the pixel and pixel XL are already priced in the same bracket as Apple iphone’s and Samsung flagship Galaxy range. The iPhone 8 and Galaxy S8 prices rises expected in 2017. And also Google pixel 2 and pixel 2 XL are priced more than last year.
I understand that Premium price tag for Google pixel smartphones upset many buyers but Quality and Specifications are upgraded than Nexus line up.But the google pixel smartphones are not have affordable price like Nexus phones. But in Nexus price line up and below other companies give affordable Specifications and features for example OnePlus 3T. Instead what stock Android lacked was a truly Premium model and the pixels take the battle on Apple and Samsung .so we see why they cannot be priced similarly.
Googlee does need to drastically improve two aspects of the pixels for 2017: to compete with the iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 redesign ,google must greatly slim down the pixels hug top and bottom bezels. Building good phones and spending millions of advertising is pointless if no one can buy them. Still if google can produce such impressive Premium smartphones at its first attempt.
