The snappy phone with latest hardware, baked with latest vanilla/pure Android, with toppings of great camera, assistant and display!
Definitely one of the best phones out there.

• As far as the DESIGN goes, Google has nailed the argonomics, fit and finish and specually the feel of the phone in overall. They have tried the new thing (always it gives unseen-before designs. eg: Nexus 6p) with pixel which is to do with the 'antena' or 'network boosting' by having glass panel at the top of the back which is kind of wierd or unused scinario in a phone, considering the traditional design. And in front, those thick bezels make the phone look a bit older generation and ugly.
• The most loved feature of the phone is the CAMERA, which is one of the best in the market. The 12mp sony IMX378 sensor ( with larger pixels) takes amazing shots within a second. The processing, HDR, wider range lens also add the value and help getting mind-blowing pictures. 4k video recording with good amount of image stabilization is also one of the considerable feature. • Performance is very good with latest SD821 processor and 4gb Ram. The good thing is that Google has really worked hard with the hardware-software optimisation and pixel shows the best results having no lags or whatever. The UI is pretty simple and neat without any bloats, helping the phone not to slow down. • Speakers are disappointing considering the previous sterio speaker setup of Nexus 6p. Though, it's not that bad. • The display is amazing as it's an Amoled panel but the bezels sometimes (mostly in day time) disturb the overall love/feel of display. • Battery backup again has been improved from previous Nexus devices by optimising os for the best and hopefully it'll get even better with updates. • 4g LTE, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections work very well as it has the latest hardware. Pros Camera, Camera and Camera! Solid, lag-free Performance Google Assistant Stock Android with Updates guaranteed from Google Daydream Support Solid build quality and feel Good Battery backup and fast-changing Simple, Friendly UI Cons Chunky Bezels make the phone look bit older Missing stereo speakers from 6p Non-expandable storage Single SIM Back panel gets scratched quickly, so cover is recommended price
