Fast Google phone facts

  • Google first entered the phone business in 2010 by partnering with third-party hardware manufacturers for its Google Nexus line, but it wasn't until 2016 that the tech giant went all-in on its own phone with the Google Pixel.
  • The Google Pixel smartphone line is powered by Google's own Android operating system and competes with other high-end phones like Apple's iPhone and Samsung's Galaxy S handsets.

What to consider when choosing a Google phone

These days, new smartphone models seem to arrive every other week, each touting a bevy of fancy new features promising to improve your life in all manner of exciting ways. Determining which of these features is actually worth your money isn't always easy, so we've broken down the key factors to keep in mind when shopping for a Google phone:

Which Google phone is best?

"Best" is always a tricky term to nail down, as it often means different things to different people. Admittedly, choosing a "best" Google phone is easier than it is for many handsets simply because there are only four different Pixel models to compare. Nevertheless, our choice below is based on our own experience and expertise reviewing and testing phones. Be sure to weigh up your own needs and budget before deciding whether it's the right choice for you.

Looking for a Google Pixel on a plan?

Since most of us don't have a spare $1,000 in our wallets, purchasing a new Google Pixel phone outright is a lot to ask. Paying the handset off in instalments over two years or more is far more palatable, which is why contract phone plans are so popular. You can compare these plans for the 64GB models of the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL in the table below. If you want to fine-tune the results, just click the "Filter Results" button.
