The last cheap smartphone from Google, the Nexus 5X, was also one of its best. But over the past few months, that Snapdragon 615 processor has begun to show its age, which means an upgrade is sounding pretty good right about now. Is the Google Pixel the device for you?
That 4GB of RAM and Snapdragon 821 processor is going to make a big difference over the long run. Couple that with a more premium design, Pixel-specific software and an improved camera, and it might not be such a crazy idea to trade-up from the Nexus 5X.
You can see how these two compare in the table below.
