There is a wide range of great Android flagship smartphones that have been released this year. Some of the top ones include the Galaxy S21 ultra, the OnePlus 9 Pro, Xiaomi Mi 11, and many more. However, there is only one device that most tech enthusiasts have been looking forward to for almost the entire year. That’s the Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro.
Ever since the first rumors of Google working on a phone with its in-house chip, every tech enthusiast out there has been looking forward to seeing what this phone will be capable of. We know Google has always been one the best companies at optimizing their software to take advantage of relatively inferior hardware.
This is evident in their previous generation of Pixel devices, such as the Pixel 4 and the Pixel 5. These smartphones did not have the best chip or the best camera hardware. However, they were all able to perform at almost the same level as the other Android flagships at the time. And when it comes to photos, the Google Pixel has always been up there with Apple’s and Samsung’s flagships.
With the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, Google even has more control over their device than ever before. These two devices are powered by Google’s in-house chip called Tensor and also run Android OS that Google builds. This kind of control is almost similar to what Apple has with the iPhone.
So, why is the Pixel 6 the best Android phone for tech enthusiasts?
There are three main reasons why any tech nerd would choose the Pixel over any other Android flagship in the market right now.
- It is the smartest Smartphone in the market right now
Over the years, Google has been known for its superior AI and the machine learning inventions evident in almost every product they create. With the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, Google has taken their AI and machine learning game to the next level. Most of this is evident in the camera features that these devices come with.
One of the features that stands out is the magic eraser that lets you seamlessly remove unwanted subjects from your photos after shooting them. The Pixel 6’s speech-to-text capabilities are also miles ahead of the competition.
- Android 12 is solid on the Pixel
Android 12 is more optimized on Google Pixel than any other device in the market. This new version of Android comes with material you – a feature that allows users to customize the system colors to match their wallpaper. The absence of bloatware on the Pixel devices is another reason that makes its Android experience better. You should also remember that the Pixels are always the first to receive the latest Android updates.
- Great performance
When it comes to benchmarks, Google’s Tensor is almost at par with Qualcomm’s snapdragon 888. However, Tensor is designed to take full advantage of Google’s AI, machine learning, and ambient computing capabilities. This combination makes the Google Pixel 6 Pro a better performer as a whole package than most Android flagships.
