How to get your smartphone to do something useful on the go
The Google Pixel XL’s $999 price tag makes it a tempting choice for many who want to add some extra computing power to their smartphone.
It’s a bit of a gamble, however, and the Pixel XL comes with a limited array of built-in sensors and apps that will not make use of the phone’s built-ins, but Google has a lot of other stuff on offer for those who need it.
That includes the company’s Pixel Buds camera, Pixel Launcher, and Google Assistant.
The Pixel Bud is Google’s way of letting you control your Pixel device with your voice, which makes it an attractive addition to the Pixel line.
But the Pixel Bud also comes with the company and Google’s Pixel Camera, which can shoot 5K videos in full-HD resolution.
You can also pair the Pixel Launcher with the Pixel Phone’s built in speakers to stream music or podcasts to your phone’s speakers.
The launcher also supports a built-back camera app that can record videos in high definition and make them available to the camera app in the background.
All of these functions are useful for anyone who needs to stream content from their phone, and they’re all well worth a look if you’re in need of some additional computing power.
