Introducing Pixel Phone by Google

Meet Pixel

The power of Google at your fingertips.
Every touch, every interaction, every moment - made easy. Available in 2 sizes.

Your own personal Google Assistant

Ask it questions. Tell it to do things.
To start, just say 'OK Google', or touch and hold the Home button. And the more you use it, the more useful it gets. It's your own personal Google, always ready to help.1

Your phone, never full

Never lose a memory with unlimited storage for your photos and videos, all stored at full resolution in Google Photos. And use Smart Storage to let Pixel help free up space when you need it. Just set it up once and say goodbye to photos and videos triggering those annoying "storage is full" warnings.1

Your photos, smart

It's easy to capture that perfect shot. Take crisp photos, even in low light. And catch action shots as they happen with Smartburst. Once you've captured the moment, Google Photos keeps all your photos backed up and organised, so that you can find and share them fast.

Your closest friends, closer

Google Duo is a simple video calling app for Android & iOS that brings you face-to-face with just a tap. And with the Knock Knoc feature, you'll see the caller before you pick up, so that you never miss a moment.2

Your chats, your style

Google Allo is a smart messaging app that helps you say more and do more. Bring your personal Google Assistant into your group chats to find restaurants nearby, share videos to watch, and get answers. Express yourself better with stickers, Smart Reply3 and much more.

Your battery, charged fast

When you need a quick charge, the reversible USB Type-C charger gets you up to 7 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes. 4 And when you aren't using your phone, Doze automatically puts it into a sleep state to extend your battery life, so that you can move at your speed.

Your case by Google

Designed using imagery from Google Earth and Google Trends, each Live Case not only features beautiful case artwork but also a companion live wallpaper that showcases either striking images from around the world or top trending Google searches.

1. Unlimited backups for photos and videos taken with your Pixel phone. Requires Google account. Data rates may apply.

2. Compatible with Android 4.1 and up and iOS 9 and up. Internet connection required.

3. Feature only available in English.

4. Battery claims based on charging with the included charger and a mix of talk, data and standby use. An active display.

Pixel XL Phone by Google is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stressful and Waste of money You won't use this device for long before being prevent to install an app or take pictures with a message saying there's no available space. The camera, which was something that led me to choose this one is very wide and there's no option to change it according to your purpose as other flagship devices allow you to. Also, because of the storage issue you can't use its full resolution anyway. That's just a waste of your money. The battery does charge fast but it doesn't last long. Again, comparing other flagship smartphones on the market being sold by the same price or cheaper, this is way behind - size, functions, support. You'll find out there's nothing special about the phone, no special feature, no special design.. Literally, nothing you won't find better on other brand with better price. The phone also heats a lot while not being used on your pocket. And the worst part is, after you pay £600 to Carphone Warehouse, they won't offer you any support, that's what happened when I looked for it less than 2 months after my purchase. Look for the big A if you're paying full price, they care about customers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish!!! Worst phone ive ever had. Does not even connect to wifi and my apps keep on closing. Went to the shop to complain on two different days and two people told me two different things, it states in the box you get a usb cable, well i didnt. Totally not happy with this phone and got 21 months left of paying the contract.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excels at everything got the sim free version of this after my nexus 5x gave up. What an upgrade this is. If you've never used a pure android phone before then you may not realise how good an experience this offers. This phone is fast, this phone has a camera that takes breathtaking pictures, combine it with the google photos app an storage concerns disappear, 32gb is more than enough. I'll be first in the queue for Andriod O and already have the latest security updates, this is what Andriod should be & google deliver a phone that's a dream to use. I can't fault it, sure it may have bezels and may not have the looks of the latest Samsungs or LG but operation is all important and this blows the competition away. Highly recommend at the £499 price point.
