Google Pixel XL

It was an interesting story to hear that Google were releasing their own device into a market that they already dominated with its Android software. Therefore we had a number of expectations and with the Google Pixel XL they did a number of things other manufacturers should be doing. Personally, my favourite hack is how to use the 24/7 live support that is offered directly within the device, what a great idea.
