In addition, Verizon is bringing back the 2-year service contract deal which could bring the phone price down to $199 and avoid you from having the monthly phone charge in addition to your service plan.
The phone is also available on Google’s Project Fi which just may be the best wireless option for international travelers.
How does the phone compare to the iPhone 7?
Experts are saying that the Google Pixel will give Apple a run for the money.
The fact that the chat app works with both IOS and Android is pretty good; however, it requires both people to have the app installed on their phone. while iMessage is built into the iPhone.
For photo geeks, the Google Pixel offers an exceptional camera as well as the unlimited online storage.
Will I switch?
I currently have the iPhone 6. My phone works great so I am not in the market for a new phone; however, if I was, I think I would buy the Pixel.
