Google’s Pixel smartphone, which made its debut last month, has gathered some high praise from reviewers. “The Google Pixel is now the best Android smartphone you can buy,” wrote Joanna Stern.
“The other leading contender was disqualified due to spontaneous combustion,” she added, referring to Samsung’s doomed Galaxy Note7, which was recalled for safety reasons. Stern was impressed with Pixel’s display; its high pixel count made the blacks in photos appear deeper, colors more vibrant, and everything sharper.
