The strategy of Google to draw a full stop to their Nexus line up of smartphones consists of reasons in plenty. Meant to be the showcases of Android in its purest form, Google’s Nexus was the manufacturer-specific device with customizations of unnecessary differences as well as clashing styles.

Originally the Pixel XL device debuted in the tech industry with a price tag of Rs. 76,000. And until now, even after succeeded by Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, the predecessors are considered to be two of the most bankable devices. All thanks to the regular software updates as well as the excellent camera module that Pixels sport.
