Is it Worth Buying Google Pixel 8?

It depends, if you're a fan of Google and willing to Pay Rs 75,999 then yes, Pixel 8 5G is worth buying but if you want value for money device then kindly stay away from it and look for better device.

I'm big fan of Pixel OS and this time, Google has added tons of A I feature but still, at the end of the day, Pixel 8 is 76k. So, its a bit too much to ask for all the AI stuff.

The only thing bothering me is, what if Google kills the Pixel phones like what they have done with tons of other products.

Also, Pixel 8 will get 7 OS updates that means, this device will get updates till 2030 which is great.

Now, Google has made significant changes in GPU while the CPU remains the same. CPU is throttling the same as the Pixel 7 Series which is not good sign.

During the throttle test, Google Pixel 8 went up to 55% which isn’t a good sign but it is better compared to the Pixel 7 which went up 57%.

The 6.20-inch 120Hz OLED display is perfect for gaming and even watching movies on Netflix. The HDR support is there in almost all the OTT apps including Netflix and even YouTube.

Google Tensor chipsets are never meant for gaming at all but things have changed and looks like they’re now more focused on performance too.

This doesn’t mean, Google Tensor G3 is a powerful SoC, it simply means, it’s not as bad as Google Tensor G2.

Google Pixel 8 has a 50MP primary sensor and 12MP ultra-wide lens while there 10.5MP selfie shooter on the front. Both the cameras can shoot videos at 4K@24/30/60fps and 1080p@30/60fps.

Google is known for its cameras and no one can beat them, not even Apple or Samsung but the big problem is with Video. Google is claiming that the Pixel 8 Series will take better video than the iPhone but it’s not true at all.

Photos are not way ahead of iPhone 15 but yes, the Pixel 8 takes better and more natural images. 

In conclusion, the Pixel 8 has good cameras and takes solid images but when it comes to video, it’s not as good as iPhones as Google claims. Still, you will be more than happy with what Google is offering with Pixel 8 plus the AI integration.

Stereo speakers are there and they’re perfect. They go loud, they’re clear and also have bass too. 

It has a day battery but if you’re a heavy user then you will have to charge Pixel 8 twice a day. On top of that, there is no charger in the box, it only comes with a charging cable.

There is also 18W wireless charging support too.

Pixel 8 is not for everyone, its for those who wanted clean Android along with the best cameras for Photograhy.


All these come with a premium price tag which I'm sure many people will pay but as I have said, it's not for everyone. Especially those users who want to value for money devices.
