"The Google Pixel is presently the best Android cell phone you can purchase," composed Joanna Stern in The Wall Street Journal.
"The other driving contender was excluded because of sudden ignition," she included, alluding to Samsung's destined Galaxy Note7, which was reviewed for security reasons.
Stern was inspired with Pixel's show; its high pixel include made the blacks photographs seem further, hues more dynamic, and everything more keen.
"The AMOLED show improves photographs look - even ones gone up against an iPhone," she composed.
Keep Your Pixels Dry
Pixel "offers the look and skill of an iPhone with a genuinely incredible camera and heaps of creative programming and administrations," David Pierce noted in a survey for Wired.
"It changes my response to the question I hear regularly: 'What telephone should you get?' You ought to get a Pixel," he composed.
"The prompt joke everybody, including me, made on Twitter after the Pixel dispatch was that Google made an iPhone," Pierce included. "All things considered, that is valid. Things being what they are, an iPhone running Android is precisely what I've been sitting tight for."
Pixel is a champion contrasted with different heavyweights in the market, as per Lisa Eadicicco, who investigated it for Time.
"By and large, the Pixel is Google's first cell phone that can run toe-to-toe with Apple's iPhone and Samsung's Galaxy leader," she composed. "It's on equivalent balance with those telephones in a large portion of the territories that truly matter, despite the fact that its absence of water resistance is a difficulty. Still, Android fans who get the Pixel ought to be satisfied, inasmuch as they keep it dry."
Google hit a grand slam with its initially marked cell phone, said Cnet commentator Lynn La.
"With Pixel, Google ventured at the plate, called its shot and thumped it out of the recreation center," she composed.
It's a takeoff from Google's prior Nexus cell phones, since you don't need to be an Android fan to acknowledge what Google has achieved with the Pixel.
"The main thing you'll must be eager about is owning a telephone that is excellent, takes wonderful photographs, and has smooth execution," La composed. "In the event that you are, the Pixel's for you."
The Pixel's execution was won credit from Jason Cross, written work for PC World.
"Android fans regularly whine about telephones (particularly Samsung's) that lead benchmark diagrams, yet at the same time some way or another appear to falter, cleave, and sputter when you utilize them," he clarified.
"The Pixel XL does none of that," he composed. "Every step of the way it is smooth, quick, and a large portion of all, responsive."
"In fact, this might be the smoothest and most responsive Android telephone I've ever utilized," he included.
Rain on Pixel's Parade
A few commentators were disinterested by Google's cell phone advertising.
"The nonappearance of a noteworthy contending Android gadget works out particularly well for Google in light of the fact that the Pixel is, moderately, unremarkable," Brian X. Chen composed for The New York Times.
"It is slower than Apple's iPhone 7 and the Galaxy S7, Samsung's littler leader telephone," he noted.
"Photographs shot with Pixel's camera don't look on a par with the iPhone's," Chen proceeded. "Furthermore, Google's inherent misleadingly wise virtual aide, called Assistant, is still genuinely imbecilic."
Evaluating might be an issue with the Pixel models, noted David McQueen, investigate chief for shopper gadgets and key innovation at ABI Research.
The Pixel is estimated at US$650 and the bigger Pixel XL is offering for $770.
"This is very costly for what you're getting, and the construct quality isn't on a par with other leader telephones in the market," McQueen told TechNewsWorld. "It will be somewhat dangerous for Google to make separation at the equipment at that cost point."
Google's Hardware Future
Notwithstanding, heating Google Assistant into Pixel's equipment could do that, McQueen proceeded.
"Since it's the principal gadget to convey Google Assistant, that will be a differentiator in an Android market where it's extremely hard to make any kind of separation on the equipment," he said.
Without a doubt, Google Assistant may be Pixel's prime resource, as well as a key segment of Google's equipment future.
"The Pixel's most prominent quality is truly not anything in the equipment side," said Mark Hung, an examination VP at Gartner.
It's Google Assistant, which is just accessible on Pixel, he brought up.
"It's the eventual fate of Pixel, as well as of the Google equipment biological community," Hung told TechNewsWorld. "Google is hoping to make computerized reasoning the following stage after portable and social."
Gunning for Apple
Commentators taking the measure of Pixel never neglected to specify the iPhone. There's a basic explanation behind that.
"They're following iPhone clients and other top of the line telephone purchasers," said Ross Rubin, important examiner at Reticle Research.
It might be troublesome for Pixel to make progress in that objective market, however.
"In created markets, we're seeing a great deal of immersion," Rubin noted. "It's a truly late time to be a newcomer to the space, regardless of the possibility that you have every one of the points of interest that Google has."
iPhone clients were Pixel's objective market, yet the item likewise will profit by the review of the Samsung Note7, pbserved Kevin Krewell, a vital expert at Tirias Research.
"The Pixel will be the real other option to the Note7," he told TechNewsWorld, "despite the fact that it does not have the Samsung item's stylus and more extensive bearer circulation."
