Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL phones have started to arrive to pre order customers all over the world. We now have a glimpse about the slow motion quality the phones can deliver and if all the hype was justified. At first glance we tend to see an improvement in both resolution and artifact control as well as better sound recording and noise suppression.
We however cannot claim this phone to be better than the iPhone 6s or iPhone 7 in slow motion quality even when they share the same 120fps 1080p and 240fps 720p spec. It will be a matter of testing them head to head and see what Google has in store for slow motion enthusiasts. What is clear with the initial samples is that the quality is improved from the Nexus 6P of last year.
The Google Pixel and Pixel XL phones released this weeks offer some pretty robust features when it comes to the camera and video recording. It offers UHD 4k at 30fps and keeping up with the Google Nexus 6p of last year it retains the slow motion mode that made it competitive with the iPhone 6s and 7. However there are no further improvements when it comes to frame rates above 240fps. It is however a much better phone with faster CPU and GPU which should help with all imaging tasks.
The new Pixel Phones are by any measure the flagship Android phone for those seeking Google update support and a more pure Stock Android OS experience. You get the benefit of no bloatware, No Android skinning and up to date updates that made the Nexus line of phones so desirable to users of the platform.
