Now we talk about Pixel XL camera performance as you all know google said we providing the world’s best camera in Google Pixel XL.

Ambient Display – Google Pixel XL does not have Ambient Display which doesn’t show notification without unlocking phone.

Loudspeaker –  Google Pixel only have one speaker at the bottom and also in an odd position which can show the problem during gaming. And talk about ringtone the ringtone sound is also not that much good.

In Hand Feel – Google Pixel XL have 5.5″ screen but its very wide look like as iPhone 6s Plus and screen to body ratio is also not good.

Charging time – Google Pixel XL comes with fast charger but it’s not fastest as Oneplus 3 Hash charger or Moto Turbocharger it takes 1 hour for 0-70% battery charging and 2:15 hours for full charging. Not so fast.

Not water resistance –  nowadays every smartphone having Waster Resistance even now iPhone also add this feature in iPhone 7. But guys google pixel XL is not water resistance.

VOLTE – It’s shocking but true for now Google pixel XL does not have VOLTE support.

Price – Its most expensive android phone Google Pixel XL  start from 60,000rs and the top model of this phone is for 76,000rs.
