‘Apple wannabe or game changer’: Twitter debates how good is Google Pixel
Google also souped up the already highly rated camera on the Pixel, boasting that it will take even better photos than the iPhone.tech Updated: Oct 05, 2017 13:27 IST
The second generation of Google’s Pixel phones unveiled on Wednesday feature larger, brighter screens that take up more of the device’s front, changes that Apple is also making with its iPhone X scheduled to be released next month.
Both the 6-inch Pixel XL and the 5-inch Pixel will also do away with the headphone jack, something Apple did with the iPhone 7 last year.
Google also souped up the already highly rated camera on the Pixel, boasting that it will take even better photos than the iPhone.
Google’s new products, including a Pixelbook laptop, wireless earbuds and a small GoPro-like camera, showcase Google-developed operating systems and services, notably the voice assistant.
A month after three iPhone models were launched, Twitter users found too many similarities between the rivals and said Google was simply turning Pixel into an Apple smartphone. Others, however, were all admiration for Google’s real-time translator in Pixel Buds.
Here’s are some of the reactions:
So the Pixel 2 just made even the iPhone X obsolete. Portrait selfies without the need of a depth sensor.. hah.. 🤔 #madebyGoogle— Jaime Rivera (@Jaime_Rivera) October 4, 2017
I wonder when the money will reach me so that I can buy a pixel 😭— Roshan Rai (@Roshan_Kr_Rai) October 5, 2017
Pixel: Apple is dumb for removing the 3.5mm headphone jack and having an unsightly camera bump!— Rene Ritchie (@reneritchie) October 5, 2017
Pixel 2: Um. Yeah. Awkward. WE SAID NOTHING
Once an Apple person, always an Apple person
Google Pixel thoughts TL;DR:— Steve T-S (@stroughtonsmith) October 4, 2016
• would absolutely get this if I wanted an Android phone
• I've no reason to want an Android phone
Oh the irony!
It’s a valid point
I thought they were not available yet! Only preorders.— Miguel Helft (@mhelft) October 4, 2017
