Would this be the breakthrough for Google Phones?

Events of the preceeding weeks before the release of Google Pixel and Pixel XL has seen the Samsung mobile flagship and the android head starter Galaxy Note 7 suffer great setback due to battery explosion issues, this has led to a lot of recalls for quick fix and even outright prohibitions from airlines.

Google on it’s part has made some adjustments which includes dropping the name Nexus for Google, positioning the Pixel XL and Pixel to compete favorably with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 & Apple Iphone 7 Plus, and finally matching closely the specifications of iPhone 7 plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 7
