This week we expect to see the first reviews for the “made by Google” Pixel and Pixel XL phones that begin shipping on Thursday. Pixel is well placed to fill the Android flagship void vacated by Samsung’s discontinued Galaxy Note 7. We’re looking forward to doing some real-world testing on the camera after Google made such a big deal out of its 89 DxOMark Mobile score, the highest ever on a smartphone. Pixel is also the first phone to feature the Google Assistant. And remember that Google’s $79 Daydream View VR headset will available for preorder on Thursday when you’re picking up that new Pixel.
