"The best Android smartphone."
It's a well-worn phrase favored by pundits and pitchmen, and one that I'm hardly immune to trying out every now and then. But in the Android world, the "best" has almost always been divided between two very different camps. For purists who wanted unadulterated software and the fastest updates, there was the Nexus line; for mainstream consumers, companies like Samsung won plaudits by packing in feature after feature (and selling phones through carriers).
So what if you combined the best of both approaches into a single product that straddled the divide? You'd have an all-new Google phone – and in some ways, a new "best Android phone." That phone is called the Pixel – and this is the MrMobile review.
