Description

The Google Pixel XL, the larger of Google's first two Pixel phones, comes with a bigger screen and a bigger battery compared to its sibling. At its core, however, it remains identical. The Pixel XL is a phone "made by Google", with the company's services integrated tightly in it. Pixel XL owners get to enjoy a number of exclusive perks, including the new Assistant feature, allowing natural language interaction between the user and the device. They also get unlimited full-res photo and video backup on Google Photos, 24/7 customer service, and the new Pixel Launcher interface. On the hardware side of things, the phone comes with Qualcomm's fastest processor to date, backed by plenty of RAM. And the camera on the back is promised to be one of the best ever put on a handset.
