Google Pixel: Here's how much space you really get in the 32GB models

131
Pixel

It's not as simple as a single number, but here's a breakdown of how much of that 32GB you'll actually be able to use.

Google's Pixel phones only come in two storage configurations — a base model 32GB, and a pricey 128GB model, for which you'll pay a $100 premium. So if you're looking to save some cash on what's already a pretty expensive phone, you might be wondering just how much space you really get on the cheaper 32GB Pixel. Well, here's the answer.

These are the Motorola phones that will be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat

49

While we were drooling over the Pixel and Pixel XL, Motorola published the list of phones that will be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat. Most phones announced this year are on the list — including the Moto G4 and G4 Plus, Moto Z, Z Play, and Z Force — as well as last year's Moto X Pure Edition and X Play.

But as is becoming the case more and more often, there are a few notable omissions. The Moto G 2015 won't receive Nougat, nor does the entry-level Moto E3 Power, which made its debut in July 2016. Other phones in the Moto E series are also not going to make the switch to the latest version of Android.

Google Pixel and Pixel XL hands-on

320
Google Pixel and Pixel XL

Our first impressions of the brand new Google Pixel and Pixel XL.

There have been many "Google phones" over the years. In the run up to Android's announcement eight years ago, rumors swirled of a "gPhone" to take on the increasingly dominant iPhone. Fast forward 18 months and we had the Nexus program, starting with the Nexus One, a Google-branded sold direct to customers unlocked. Since then, Google has collaborated with many manufacturers to show its vision of what an Android phone should be — those partnerships have brought us eight wildly different "Google" Nexus phones.

And now there's Pixel — the first true Google phone, taking on the name we used to associate with its own Chromebooks. And just like those Chromebooks, the new Pixel and Pixel XL are designed from the ground up by Google, and launched today at an event in San Francisco. Join us as we take a first look at the first phones "made by Google."

The first phones made by Google, individually and side-by-side.

The Google Pixel and Pixel XL are official, and we've just gotten our grubby little hands on the two phones at Google's event. A full hands-on write-up and video walkthrough will be with you soon. In the meantime, here's an photo essay on both phones, as well as a side-by-side comparison of the 5-inch and 5.5-inch models.

Where to buy the Google Pixel and Pixel XL in the U.S.

112

Where can you buy the new Pixel phones in the U.S.? Well, there are a few options, and here they are!

Now that Google has officially announced its new Pixel phones, you may be wondering where you can purchase one for yourself. Unlike a lot of other phones, you can't just walk into a carrier store and grab one, but they are going to be available from a few different retailers. Google will be selling the phones through its own store, but if you prefer to shop elsewhere you'll be able to do that too.

Availability will vary by retailer, and some may offer different promotions to entice you to make the purchase from them. Here's where you can find the new Pixel phones in the U.S. Be sure to check back for more retailers and information as it becomes available.

Google Store

The Google Store may be the easiest place to order your new phone from. You'll get free standard shipping, a cheap upgrade to express shipping and easy returns if needed. Google has also expanded its financing options beyond just Project Fi this year, meaning you can pay for your phone over the course of 24 months if you'd rather.

You can also purchase the device protection in case you want some additional warranty coverage.

See at Google Store

Project Fi

Whether you are an existing Project Fi customer or want to make the switch, you'll be able to pick up a Pixel or Pixel XL through Project Fi again. Existing Project Fi customers can log in and pre-order now and get a free Google Daydream with their order. New customers can sign up for Project Fi through the Google Store listing.

Current Project Fi customers will only be able to order the black or silver version, not the blue.

See at Project Fi

Verizon

Google has announced that Verizon is the exclusive carrier partner for the Pixel and Pixel XL in the U.S.

See at Verizon

Best Buy

Best Buy is listed as a retailer for the Pixel and Pixel XL, but Google did not announce whether or not it would have stock available for launch. The retailer began Nexus 6P sales following the official launch, so you may have to wait a bit to place your order through Best Buy.

Where to buy the Google Pixel and Pixel XL in the UK

Pixel phones

Where can you buy Google's new Pixel phones in the UK?

Google's Pixel event has just wrapped up, and already we're starting to learn about when and where we'll be able to buy the Pixel and Pixel XL in the UK, and how much they'll cost. The short version is that all four variants are pretty expensive, and that the Google Store live right now. EE should follow as exclusive carrier partner, and given the recent leaks they should also be available at Carphone Warehouse.

Verizon is the exclusive U.S. carrier for the Pixel

300

Google has announced that Verizon will be its exclusive U.S. carrier for the Pixel phones. That's right, just Verizon. No AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint or even U.S. Cellular. In previous years, Google offered its Nexus phones through carriers, but not exclusively to just one. You'll still be able to pick up an unlocked version of either the Pixel or Pixel XL from Google or Project Fi, but if you want to finance it through your carrier, you'll only be able to do that with Verizon.

It's not clear yet whether Verizon will be slapping its own branding on the Pixel phones as it does to others, or whether it will remain untouched like the iPhone. Hopefully, the carrier bloat will be kept to a minimum, but only time will tell. What do you think of Google's choice to partner exclusively with Verizon in the U.S.? Let us know in the comments!

Google Pixel owners get unlimited full resolution photo and video backup

52

Google's Pixel event is underway, and there are many announcements. Follow along, if you aren't already.

One of the major announcements is around the 12.3MP cameras, and how fantastic they are. Google says that the Pixel camera is one of the fastest and highest-quality on the market, which is great.

But one of the big announcements from the event is that Pixel owners get free, unlimited full-resolution backups for photos and 4K videos on Google Photos, a big differentiator from other Android devices, which only get unlimited "high" resolution photos.

It's a big upgrade for photographers, and may be a good reason for many to choose the Pixel. Will you?

Google Pixel and Pixel XL specs

138

What's in the Google Pixel and Pixel XL? Pretty much the same stuff, except for a couple crucial differences.

Google's Pixel and Pixel XL are made by HTC, but from a marketing perspective they're all Google. This means they're running the latest version of Android Nougat, version 7.1, with some Google Magic thrown in, but they're also top-of-the-line phones for late 2016. Here's what they have.

Google Pixel event

Google's ready to announce its new phones and potentially much more.

We all get very excited for a Google event, and rightfully so. After a pretty big Google I/O earlier this year and plenty of leaks pointing us in the right direction, this latest event is expected to be worth your time. New phones with Pixel branding are a lock, but there will likely be much more to be shown off and explained. It's going to be a big deal, and Android Central will be there to cover it all.
