Top 3 Google Phones Produced So Far

If you’re on the hunt for the best Google phone around you, then you’ve come to the right place. Google is not widely known for having the best smartphones, but they are known for developing the Android OS, which a lot of smartphones use apart from Apple’s devices.

So with all that said, let’s get to know the top 3 Google phones that have been produced so far.

1. Google Pixel 3

Google Pixel 3 is regarded as the best phone that Google has ever produced. It comes with a 5.5-inch P-OLED display that puts all super-sized smartphone trends to shame. It is originally smaller than the XL, and it runs on the latest Android OS, 9.0 Pie. It comes with a Google Assistant, so you can talk to it, ask questions, make calls, play music, just by using your voice.

However, the biggest reason as to why Google Pixel 3 tops every Google smartphone list is the camera improvements. The Pixel 3 has two improved front-facing cameras, which includes an 8MP wide-angle lens dedicated for group selfies. The phone also features a dual 12.2MP rear camera that comes with a host of advanced features such as night mode and top shot mode.

On the hardware front, the Pixel 3 has a Snapdragon 845 processor and 4 GB of RAM. That gives the phone plenty of processing power, and you even have the option of choosing between a 64 GB and 128 GB version.

2. Google Pixel 2

According to mobile experts at, Google Pixel 2 was a beast of a phone until Pixel 3 showed up. The phone comes with a smaller 5-inch AMOLED display that runs HD, and FULL HD resolution. It runs on the Android 8.0 Oreo OS version, but it can be upgraded to the 9.0 Pie.

On the camera front, we can see clearly that the Pixel 2 underperforms compared to the newer Pixel 3. The Pixel 2 has one 12.2MP rear and one 8MP front camera. However, Google’s AI photo editing algorithm, which complements the rear camera, still manages to deliver the best possible camera experience. The camera has several modes such as Portrait Mode, which allows you a DSLR-style of photography on both cameras, Motion Photos, and Google Lens, as well as, support for various augmented reality games and apps.

On the hardware front, the Pixel 2 has a Snapdragon 835 processor unit and 4GB of RAM. You have the choice of either 64GB or 128GB and the battery is a 2,700 mAh wireless-supporting charging unit.

3. Google Pixel XL

And our last spot goes to the Google Pixel XL that was released at the back end of 2016. The Pixel XL is the first model of the Pixel line and it should be treated with respect. The phone comes with a 5.5-inch AMOLED display and with a somewhat more powerful 12.3 MP front-facing camera. The phone is missing a lot of features that both Pixel 2 and the Pixel 3 have, however, it comes with a lot of useful features as well.

The Google Pixel XL is the first phone to support Virtual Reality headsets and it has a pretty powerful processor, a Snapdragon 821 chipset. It comes with 4 GB of RAM and you can choose between the 32 or 128GB version. The battery is more powerful than both Pixel 2 and Pixel 3 and the 3,450 mAh battery is considered the phone’s best feature.
