Why Should You Buy Google Pixel Phones?

So if all of this sounds okay-ish to you then note that both these Pixel phones will get the latest Android updates for the next 2 years while being updated for the next 3 years with the latest security patches.

Also if you are out in the market looking to buy a new premium Android smartphone then Pixel is the best option available right now because Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has been discontinued, Galaxy S7 series is a bit too old, you don’t like HTC, or LG, or Sony, and don’t want to buy any Chinese phone. So, you know you should buy Google Pixel.

Well, jokes apart, Google Pixel is not only one of the best phones that Google has made, but is also one of the greatest Android phone that the world has ever seen.

Gift yourself a Google Pixel this Diwali and enjoy the world of Android like never before. If you are heavy user then we would advise you to go with Pixel XL not because it has a larger display but because it has a better battery backup.
