The one year upgrade is always a tough recommendation, but Google is making a hard course correction with the Pixel. Leaving behind the developer focus, and walking away from the enthusiasts who celebrated the Nexus as a bang-for-buck solution, now Google is courting a more consumer focused demographic. Aiming at the premium market, this new first party phone has some big shoes to fill. No literally the 6P is a larger phone than the XL.
This brings quite a few changes to the design and the aesthetics of this new Google phone. The Pixel is Google’s second chance at a first impression, but does it represent enough of a change to not only convince Nexus owners to jump on a one year upgrade, but will they also be encouraged to part with significantly more cash for the privilege?
It’s time for a showdown! Google vs Google in the battle of a one year upgrade!
