Android 7.1 Nougat and the Pixel Launcher

The smartphone runs in Android 7.1 Nougat and the new “Pixel Launcher” interface. Activating Google assistance is indeed a matter of child’s play, like speaking “OK Google” to the phone, or long press the home button on screen, works out just fine. As long as you know what you want to ask for, Google Assistance will bring the whole internet world to you.

The yummy icing on the lovely moist red velvet cake is, the software update gets delivered in the background and stays there. It updates itself when the smartphone is rebooted. So, bye bye annoying prompts. Too smart for a phone, ain’t it?

Verdict

Though HTC designed the phone, Google owns every single piece of the phone from inside out, extending all the way to the flat dark grey G, on the lower of the rear.

Google said that initially it was famed for a software company and advancement in technology are driven at the intersection of software and hardware. So, Google successfully showcased its software capabilities in hardware that is tailored specifically for all its users.

Debates trending on Twitter like “Google shouldn’t try to be Apple” is a fallacy. Rather than suppressing its capabilities, Google played to its strengths.

What do you want in a phone, solely depends on you and it influences your expectations and demands. The features available in Pixel, if are what you have been searching for, your prayers just got answered.

Yes, the Google Pixel is a lot of money, but it is the real deal. It is a flagship product which commands flagship price. Fair enough. Apple and Samsung just got a run for their money. With the Pixel, Google keeps things nice and easy.
