Google’s December 2020 Pixel feature drop is here – What you get

Google has released its latest feature drop for Pixel owners, and if you've been clutching your Pixel 3 or Pixel 4 and wondering whether it's time to upgrade, these new-found abilities could help you postpone that decision a little longer.

Pixel 5 teardown redeems Google’s 2020 flagship

Pixel 5 teardown redeems Google’s 2020 flagship

JerryRigEverything's Zack Nelson is anything but gentle when it comes to gadgets and machines, which is pretty much the point of the YouTube channel. Although he does test how easy or hard it would be to tear down a phone, he often also does it with less finesse, especially after a stressful durability test. It's no surprise, then, that he would sometimes come across phones that break in spectacular ways but what's more surprising is when those phones suddenly revive after what seemed to be a catastrophic death.

Pixel 5 durability test digs for the metal under thick plastic

Pixel 5 durability test digs for the metal under thick plastic

While Google is an excellent software developer and advertiser, its luck with hardware products has been rather hit or miss. Its own smartphones, in particular, are hailed for their "pure" Android experience but often criticized for their hardware quality. The Pixel 5 didn't escape that curse, with reports of the screen slightly separating from its frame. But while Google strangely confirms that is part of the phone's design, it turns out that the Pixel 5 is even stranger beneath its skin.

iPhone periscope zoom tipped – is it time for Pixel magic?

iPhone periscope zoom tipped – is it time for Pixel magic?

A rumor today suggests that Apple's next iPhone will have "folded" periscope cameras enabling far better zoom. That's zoom, as in the ability to get a whole lot closer to subject matter that's about to be photographed or captured with video. Apple's plans won't likely significantly change the look of the iPhone, as the "folded" keyword indicates compact and otherwise sized-down hardware action.

Barely Blue Pixel 4a gives Google’s value phone a brighter finish

Barely Blue Pixel 4a gives Google’s value phone a brighter finish

Google has released a new color version of the Pixel 4a, adding a Barely Blue finish for those who want something more striking than the sober black it originally launched in. Priced the same as the regular Just Black Pixel 4a, the new powder blue variant is functionally the same, but it gives the affordable Android smartphone the looks to live up to its value.

Pixel 4a DxOMark scores show have far Google can take a single camera

Pixel 4a DxOMark scores show have far Google can take a single camera

The very first Pixel phone was almost revolutionary, especially in its camera. Singular. In an age of dual, even triple, cameras, Google opted to put a single sensor and let the software do the rest. It has mostly stuck to that formula until last year with the Pixel 4 and its two cameras. The Pixel 4a, not its larger 5G sibling, goes back to those roots, and DxOMark's review reminds us of how impressive that prospect was, at least back in 2016.

Pixel 4a durability test brings back the good old days

Pixel 4a durability test brings back the good old days

Google's own smartphone strategy this year is a bit perplexing to say the least. Not only are its Pixel phones late, mostly blamed on COVID-19, their specs, features, and prices seemed to be all over the place. For those who don't even want to bother with 5G, the Pixel 4a launched just three months ago may be the sweet spot when it comes to features and price. The latter, however, might raise some concerns over its durability, something that JerryRigEverything's Zack Nelson puts to the test.

Pixel 5 Battery Share turns on temporarily when you plug it in

Pixel 5 Battery Share turns on temporarily when you plug it in

One of the perhaps less advertised features of the Pixel 5 is its reverse wireless charging. Formally branded as "Battery Share", the feature lets you share the phone's already mediocre 4,080 mAh battery with other devices that need an emergency boost, be it the Pixel Buds or even another smartphone. This feature is becoming more common among high-end flagships but Pixel 5 owners might be surprised that it suddenly turns on when charging the phone itself. Just like theo screen gap, this is actually by design, not a bug.

Pixel 5 screen gap issue is apparently part of the design

Pixel 5 screen gap issue is apparently part of the design

Whenever there are reports about hardware or design problems in new products, the common response companies give is to downplay the severity or spread of the issue, claiming it affects only a very small number of cases. Google, however, may have taken the rhetoric to a new level when it finally responded to questions about gaps appearing between the Pixel 5's screen and its body. Beyond just reassuring owners that their phones are still as dust and as waterproof as unaffected units, Google's official statement is that it's a normal part of the phone's design.

Google Pixel Android 11 bugs fixed in November 2020 update

Google Pixel Android 11 bugs fixed in November 2020 update

It has already been a few months since Google finally make Android 11 available to all but, to date, very few smartphones actually have it already. Of course, Google's own Pixel phones are the lone exception but, sometimes, being first does have its drawbacks. You often also get hit with bugs before everyone else, presuming some Android 11 bugs might actually affect other non-Pixel phones. Fortunately, Google was also quick to the rescue, rolling out the November 2020 Pixel Security Update with much-needed fixes introduced in the latest Android version.
