When the Mountain View-headquartered technology giant Google announced the very first generation Pixel series of smartphones back in 2016, the company also offered a fringe benefits where it enables Pixel and Pixel XL owners to back up original quality photos to the Google Photos service for free.
As for this year, that same additional benefits applied to the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL but had a small proviso, restricting the unlimited upload of uncompressed original quality photographs until 2020. Following that, Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 owners would either have to switch to uploading high quality compressed images or shell out a money to pay a monthly fee to keep the ability to keep backing up original quality photos.
This sudden revision caused prospect Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 buyers to be anxious, worrying that the new limitations would also apply to 2016 Pixels owners. Fortunately, the search engine giant firm has joined in and claimed that Pixel owners do not have to concern about the condition, as they will preserve the ability to upload unlimited images and videos in original and uncompressed quality for the life of the device.
Because of the free additional service and the Pixels newly issued $100 discount, the Pixel and Pixel XL might make a compelling selection for someone looking for a new smartphone, considering that they have unofficially obtain the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2’s camera features.
