Google Pixel: The Perfect Flagship, One Year Late

Image
Google has the Nexus program, to show, how manufacturers should use Android. Well, not anymore. There is something new, with a similar, albeit slightly extended intention. The "Pixel" phones. Very simply called Pixel and Pixel XL, for the 5" and 5.5" versions respectively. However, these are supposedly not only "guides" for manufacturers and devices running stock Android for nerds, but they want to be a competition for the iPhones and highest-end Samsung phones. These are fully polished products.

As a technology lover, I have gone through many tablets. My first tablet was the iPad 2. A device, which didn’t have a clear purpose, yet I used it the most, compared to my phone and laptop at that time. Fast forward a few years later, I no longer own an iPad.

It’s not premium, but surprisingly solid. Just by looking at it, it doesn’t seem like a sub-200 $ tablet.

Android Wear with an iPhone

I have switched from my OnePlus One to an iPhone. The iPhone 6S Plus. The overall experience is definitely better, but that’s not what I want to talk about. I still had my LG G Watch R, so I decided to pair it with an iPhone and see how it goes.
