We last questioned you about the Google Pixel smartphone that you are currently using on a daily basis more than a year ago.
You might be using one of the sixteen (count ’em, sixteen) Google smartphones as of May 2022. Even though it’s nothing compared to brands like Samsung and Xiaomi, the Pixel series has just been available since late 2016, so there’s still a decent amount of history to explore. Additionally, there is the choice between regular and XL or, more lately, standard and Pro.
Where you live determines which Google Pixel model you can purchase, but add the A-series to the mix, and while the series has a small market share, there are undoubtedly enough smartphones for Android lovers to select from:
Google Pixel/Pixel XL Pixel 2 and Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL Google Pixel 3a Pixel 4 XL or Pixel 4 XL Google Pixel 4a 5G Pixel 5 Chrome 5a Pixel 6 Pixie 6 Pro With the introduction of the Pixel 6a , Pixel 7, and Pixel 7 Pro over the coming months, three additional devices will be added to that shortlist by the end of 2022. The Pixel 6 series has even outsold the combined sales of the Pixel 4 and Pixel 5, according to Google’s own sales measurements and third-party industry analytics companies.
In the US and UK, two crucial regions that Google must penetrate to make an impact in the smartphone market, the series recently made the top 5 in sales. Anyone’s assumption as to what Google needs to do given the dominance of Samsung and Apple mixed with the limited country availability of the Pixel series is that it needs to expand into additional markets.
If you’ve had a Google phone for a while, you know that not everything is perfect because the Pixel series has been dogged by problems virtually from the beginning. Hardware is challenging, as Google has discovered since 2016.
There are several reasons why you might use a Google Pixel, but what device are you currently using? At least the series is starting to gain some momentum. By voting in the poll below, let us know which Pixel you are using, and if you have more than one, explain why in the comments area.
