Google announced its new range of smartphones back on October 4th, the Pixel, and Pixel XL, featuring AMOLED displays, Snapdragon 821 processors, 4GB RAM, 32GB/128GB internal storage and what seems to be a very capable rear camera with a 12.3MP sensor. Besides spending a boatload of cash on the marketing, Google has organized a deal with UBreakIFix to make screen replacements as easy as possible, and Verizon has stated that it will issue updates for its locked Pixel handsets as and when Google pushes them. The Pixel handsets carry higher price tags than the Nexus phones of yesteryear, so what do you get for your money? Join us after the break to find out as our very own Justin Herrick unboxes the Pixel XL.
