DescriptionThis is the first generation in the budget/mid-range line of phones from Google.
Android DistributionAndroid 11
Accessibility StatementThe Pixel uses very near to Stock android. There are a few Pixel specific tidbits, all of which are at least mostly usable with Talkback. Dialer is excellent, launcher is excellent, camera is excellent, settings app is excellent, notifications shade is excellent. This is the first Android phone in which I didn't replace any of the built in features except for Gmail. The phone is fairly low end in terms of hardware specs, so sometimes it gets sluggish where high end flagships wouldn't, but it is still good for the price, especially now that these are the previous generation and prices will be much lower still.
Prosnot very large, if you prefer small phones
decent sound, loud but minor distortion and compression occurs at higher volumes
camera works well for Google lookout app, getting exceptionally good OCR results, makes money reading extremely efficient, product identification is unusually quick and efficient.
Decent mobile signal for me on AT&T
Good battery life - about 3 days for me
extremely good haptic feedback, vibrations are sharp and enthusiastic for Talkback's haptic feedback option
Still has a normal fingerprint sensor, although it's on the back. Works very quickly with minimal fuss.
Still has a headphone jack, definitely a pro for those who need it
ConsA little sluggish, especially in web/script-heavy apps
It is easy for the speaker at the bottom of the phone to get covered by your hand, particularly when using the Talkback braille keyboard
Audio quality is poor for others when in internet calls, particulary with Skype and Threama. I regularly get complaints about how terrible I sound.
