Google Pixel XL review: 10 key takeaways

Google has been making the Android ecosystem that has served as the backbone for some of the most successful phones out there: from the Samsung Galaxy series, to LG's G family, HTC's One devices, Motorola's Moto devices, and many others.

None of them, however, seemed to be a perfect platform for Google's Android, and that's why this year Google itself has decided to build a brand new phone that will be just that.

The 5" Google Pixel and 5.5" Pixel XL are exactly that: devices where Google makes not only the software, but has complete control over the design and hardware. Up until now, this has been Apple's biggest bragging right: its iPhone had both its software and hardware made by one company, perfectly optimized for all sorts of added efficiency.

To explore all of the secrets of the Google Pixel XL, you can take a look at our detailed review here, but if you want just the most important stuff about the new 'Google phone', feel free to browse through the slides right below.
