Google Pixel Vs Pixel XL: Which One Is Better?
Google simultaneously released the newest members of its smartphone stable - the Pixel and Pixel XL.
One would immediately question why Google would release two phones from the same line in just one go. Some may also ask why did the company make a bigger version of the Pixel at all. The next thing on their mind is probably this: which one is better?
Both the Pixel and Pixel XL devices are made by one manufacturer - HTC. The Taiwan-based company made both phones similar in the way they look.
The two Google phones are run by Android 7.1 with Google UI and have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor under their hoods. They also have 4GB of RAM each and both come with either 32GB or 128GB internal storage.
They have an 8MP front camera and 12MP rear ones. The cameras at the back are both PDAF and have 1.55-micron pixels.
The $769-worth Pixel XL is $120 more expensive than the Pixel which retails for $649.
As for their screens, both devices sport AMOLED ones but differ in pixel resolution and screen size.
The Google Pixel XL has a bigger display which is quite obvious with how it is named. The XL has a 5.5-inch display as compared to the Pixel which measures only 5 inches.
With the increase in size comes an increase in pixel resolution. The Pixel's resolution is 1920 x 1080 while the XL has 2560 x 1440 pixels.
The Pixel XL also has a more powerful battery with a non-removable fast charging 3,450mAh one. The Pixel has a fast charging 2,770mAh battery which is also non-removable.
Both devices have a fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C, and Bluetooth 4.3 connectivity, and have IP53 ratings. They also come in Quite Black, Very Silver, and Really Blue colors.
Android Central leaves the decision to the preference of the prospective owner. If the buyer wants a phone that can easily be handled with one hand then the Pixel is good enough. But if he or she wants one that passes as a tablet then the bigger XL is the one.
Basically, both devices have great specs but if one is to really choose, then a more powerful battery of the XL may be the deal breaker.
As it stands both devices are currently in high demand. Google even had to give away $50 Play Store credits for customers who will not get their pre-ordered Pixel phones on time.

Netflix is Raising Prices, Here’s How it Now Compares to Other Streaming Services
Once a brand gains the trust and loyalty of its market, it is only logical that it attempts to flex its dominant muscle. Such is the tale that fits the recent price hike coming from the stable of Netflix. Having baited consumers into believing that streaming, and not cable subscription, is the right way to go, Netflix has now decided to drop its own form of a bombshell on consumers in the form of price increment. The news, which was announced earlier this year, detailed that Netflix would be raising prices across all of its plans by 13 to 18 percent.
