The Google Pixel Phones made waves in 2016 after being announced by Google as a “purely Android” phone. Since then, the search engine company’s flagship phone has captured users’ hearts with its fantastic camera, unlimited Google Photos storage, and virtual reality performance.

Besides the phone’s ability to take great photos, users tried to find how it was at par with what the market can offer today. In 2021, Google released the new wave of Pixel phones in Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Both phones now sport a 6.7-inch screen and the company’s new Tensor Chip. However, do the massive changes make up for what the flagship phone lacked in the past? 

Pixel phones are known for taking great photos. Still, it isn’t only about having an excellent camera and luxurious hardware: the software and services that a phone ties into are also essential. Let’s get into a few of these below

1. Google Pixel Phone have More Space for Photos

Since Google Pixel claims its camera is one of the best in the market, people will expect to take many photos. However, one of the problems with good camera quality is that the images tend to have a more extensive storage space requirement. Most of the time, photos would be a few megabytes bigger than usual.

Google found a way to let people take more photos by giving Pixel phone users unlimited storage capacity to upload, store, and safely keep pictures on Google Photos. On average, a Google user can only use fifteen GB of storage shared across Google Drive, Gmail, and Google Photos. But this time, Pixel users get unlimited storage for Google Photos.

However, it seems like the Pixel 2020 will be the last phone to get the unlimited storage space privilege as Google will not offer the same feature to Pixel 2021 and other phones beyond.

2. Absence of Bloatware

Bloatware is a pre-installed application on smartphones that usually slows down devices. Failure to remove them may cause excessive battery and storage consumption. Google Pixel beats its competitors in the market for offering a smartphone that doesn’t include bloatware—only the pristine Android OS designed by Google itself.

3. Google Pixel Phone Supports OS Updates

Most mobile devices nowadays stop getting operating system updates due to the fast-paced release of newer technologies. However, Google assures users to provide up to three years of major Android updates and monthly security fixes. The company will also add another two years for other improvements depending on the hardware capabilities and needs.

The latest device, Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, will also get the newest Android OS, Android 12. The OS provides multiple customisation features for users to tinker on while featuring a reimagined user interface. Android 12 promises a more personal, safe, and effortless experience on the devices with the update.

The Pixel Google 6 and 6 Pro are suitable for those hoping to find the balance between a smartphone that promotes productivity and creativity. The new devices also come with 5G connectivity, enabling users to browse the internet using the fastest cellular signal to date. Besides its fantastic camera, the new Pixel phone also guarantees users at least 80 percent battery health even after 500 complete charge cycles. Get the phone that adapts to your style today.
