If Apple iPhone has TouchID for its finger-print-unlocking method, Google Pixel has Pixel Imprint. The difference between the two not only their finger-print location, iPhone is in front of the phone, while Pixel located on the back, but Pixel Imprint can do more things such as swipe down for quick access to your notifications.

Unlimited Photos and Video Storage at 4K resolution
While Google has Google Photos app released to all supported devices, including iPhone with its iOS, they can only upload unlimited hi-res photos and videos (up to 16MP and 1080p HD), if they are willing to upload any resolution higher than that, it won’t be unlimited, instead it will use your Google Drive quota.
For Pixel exclusive, Google made it unlimited storage for uploading/backing-up of any photos and videos up to 4K resolutions. This is a sure win for Pixel users.
Another feature that only available in Google Pixel is that 24/7 support built-in from the device settings. So any problems/issues with the device, you can quickly get help from Google’s team.

When Google made the announcement, Pixel will only be available for pre-orders in the US, Australia, Canada, Germany and UK. Hopefully they will soon start taking pre-orders in more countries and eventually release the device in more countries, otherwise it will share the same fate as Nexus.
Compared to its competitor, Apple iPhone, Google phone availability to the rest of the world are very less, in fact for Nexus case, it was never really officially announced here in Singapore and never really sold to Singapore officially, resulting only certain people (read: tech savvy) acknowledge the brand and can buy Nexus phone. If Google doesn’t change the way they market Pixel, I’m afraid Pixel will share the same fate to Nexus: only small number of people (compared to those getting iPhone) outside the countries mentioned above, who are willing to get the Pixel.
To those who pre-order, Google will give you a Daydream VR for FREE.
