If you love the iPhone model – hardware and software from one source – you will definitely love Google Pixel if you are an Android fanatic.
If you didn’t already know, Google provides the Android OS used in most smartphone mobiles in Kenya and around the world. Due to the popularity of the OS, many manufacturers’ products come with the software with little customization.
You may be justified to think of search engine when you hear the or see word. However, there is much more to the name since Google is present on the global market, including Kenya, when it comes to smartphones. With the Pixel models, the manufacturer presents users with unique and modern high-end smartphones.
The most special thing about the cell phones from Google, as I have mentioned earlier is the fact that the smartphone hardware and the Android operating software come from the same company and harmonize perfectly with each other. So you can be sure that you always enjoy advanced technology and an intuitive user interface with a Google smartphone.

The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro
The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are the latest smartphones from the Pixel series. Both cell phones have been available since October 2021 and they set new standards. With the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, Google is using the Google Trensor for the first time, an in-house processor that does not have to hide from the competition.
In addition, both smartphones come to you with a new elegant look. The display extends almost entirely across the front, but you’ll see the biggest difference from the Pixel 5 on the back of the phone. The camera has been completely redesigned here and while Google continues to rely on a dual camera for the Pixel 6, the Pixel 6 Pro comes with a clever 50-megapixel triple camera.
Another difference between the two new phones is the size of the display. The Pixel 6 has a razor-sharp 6, 4 inch OLED display and with the Pixel 6 Pro, Google relies on a huge 6.7 inch OLED display. As with the Pixel 5, you can surf the fast 5G network with the two new top smartphones from Google.
The Google Pixel 5
The Google Pixel 5 was launched in September 2020 as an upper mid-range smartphone. This is the first time Google has deviated from its previous premium strategy. With high-performance hardware at a fair price, the Pixel 5 is convincing and, like its predecessor, comes with a dual camera on the back. Compared to the Pixel 4, the successor comes with an aluminum back that brings back the fingerprint sensor and enables wireless charging according to the Qi standard. In terms of design, the Pixel 5 is just as convincing as all devices in the Google Pixel series.
