About a month ago, Google introduced the Pixel line of smartphones - a device that boosts powerful cameras and an ultra-fast processor. But what made the device stand out among others is its pre-installed Google Assistant - the intelligent personal assistant (IPA) created to make people's lives way easier.
According to a recent review, the Assistant of Google's latest smart phone offering is not perfect. But compared to Apple's Siri, it way more reliable. Not only that Google's IPA is able to create conversations with a user, it can also understand follow-up questions.
The Google Assistant also has a daily briefing feature which allows you to know the weather, your events for the day and some news articles. When interacting with other apps, however, Siri still does a better job. But the company said that they are currently working on an "Actions" system to make those app-related integrations easier.
Google's Pixel phones come in two varieties: the Pixel and the Pixel XL - both carry a 4GB of RAM with an optional storage of 32GB and 128GB. On top of that mega storage features, both models (a 5.0-inch and a 5.5-inch) are packed with quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processors.
The Pixel phone's camera is also something not to be missed, as it comes with a 12.3 megapixels on the back with a two-tone flash. However, what's missing in this device is the significant feature of the camera's optical image stabilization. Also, neither of the models are water resistant.
All told, the Google Pixel smartphones are getting rave reviews from critics. The device's price starts at $649 for the 32GB Pixel up to $869 for the 128 GB Pixel XL.
