Android phone makers have something to be worried about as Google's Pixel XL has taken off impressive reviews from tech writers and bloggers though not so much with the phone's design but the sheer quality the device offers. It even fares better than iPhone 7.

With Pixel XL, Google has gathered high praises because of the phone's impressive and competitive camera beating iPhone7 and even Samsung Galaxy S7. The 12.3-megapixel camera takes some of the most detailed and intricacies in shots especially when in good light, Trusted Reviews revealed.

The source added that even though the phone has narrower aperture- f/2.0 as opposed to f/1.8 of iPhone and f/1.7 of Samsung Galaxy S7 and lacks optimal image stabilization, it easily matches, and in some cases surpasses, its rivals. Pixel XL delivers shots as natural as those from Apple's flagship, but offers more vibrancy and details. The device is not also a cheap one as it matches up closely than what a consumer would pay for an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus.

The 5.5-inch display of the phone has a 2,650 x 1,440 quad-HD resolution compared with other Google devices. It is running the latest Android 7.1 Nougat and carries a promise for timely updates and comes with unlimited photo and video storage. To date, it is the hottest flagship phones on the market that offers the best Android experience with its nearly pure Nougat software and Google's incredible new AI-powered Assistant, BGR reported.

Reviews, on the other hand, pointed out the phone's durability claiming its exterior seemed to be prone to abrasions and smudges. However, a gel clear case is already on the way and is now available to protect the phone without hiding its design. The DGtle Anti-Scratch TPU gel clear case is only $8 and its form fitted slim design provides a light weight and slim solution making the case just feel like part of the phone. It is also compatible with Google Pixel.

The source added that its non-slip and user-friendly technology provides easy gripping and slides easily in and out of one's pocket. It also gives easy snap on and off with precise cutouts for easy access to ports and buttons. The Google Pixel XL indeed is one valuable device that needs to be protected; the quality the phone brings and its ability to deliver great images are reasons why Google Pixel XL could be considered a gem.
