Reviews on products such a phones can make or break them. Even when people are reading reviews for a movie they want to see or for a vacation spot, a lot of what the review has to say will influence a person’s decision. Of course we always want to have positive and constructive reviews and shy away from negative and pessimistic reviews. Evidently, the whole matter focuses and ties to likability. This whole notion of Reviews ties into the latest with the new Pixel phone.
Alphabet Inc. shares hit an ultimate high on Tuesday after habitually positive reviews for its new Pixel phones, the first line of phones designed in-house by its Google unit. One of the positive reviews that were left mentioned that it was a truly great camera and a homerun for Google. In addition, the phone is being compared to the Iphone 7. Meaning it is maintaining about the same status of likability, which is a plus considering the Iphone 7 is one of the top Smartphone’s on the market right now. The Google Pixel is the high-end android phone to purchase considering the downfall of the Samsung S7.
The Mountain View, California-based company’s stock gained 2.5 percent to $826.85 at 2:43 p.m. in New York, after previously attaining $828, the highest price since Aug. 19, 2004, when Google’s shares were first traded in the public markets.
The generally optimistic and upbeat reviews are a transformation for Google, a company that has irregularly pushed out glitch-ridden devices before they were ready for mainstream consumption. Google executive Rick Osterloh revealed earlier this month that the company would continue to produce new hardware once a year.
The Verge’s Walt Mossberg identified the new phones as “easily the best” Android phone he had ever tested, admiring the device’s automated Assistant voice feature and camera system, but criticizing its battery life. At the end of the day, no phone is perfect, and there is always room for adjustments, which is why there are always new phones coming out. Technology is always looking to evolve. TechCrunch’s Darrell Etherington claimed that the Pixel’s camera is a “terrific photo and video experience,” but stated that Apple Inc.’s iPhone 7 still maintains more accurate colors.
Youssef Squali, a market analyst at Cantor Fitzgerald, recognized Alphabet’s share gain to the support for the Pixel and confidence after Netflix Inc.’s positive quarterly results on Monday.
Part of it is the Pixel reviews, which have been more positive than expected. Partly it’s the Netflix effect. Great earnings. Google is reporting next week. There’s hope for a strong quarter from all Internet companies. It is nice to see not all the attention on Apple for the time being. When a company receives positive remarks and reviews on their product it gives them encouragement and confidence.
The new Pixel Smartphone’s will have a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing cameras. Last, but not least While Apple abandoned the headphone jack Google is maintaining its authority and sticking with headphone jack for its upcoming Pixel Smartphone’s, which is a smart idea, because it is evident that many Smartphone users were not pleased with the removal of the headphone jack for the Iphone.
