Here’s something interesting. Google is promoting a page in the Amazon Store called “Devices with Google.” Now you might ask yourself what is the difference between “Devices with Google” and “Made by Google.” Apparently, plenty. The former promotes various Android handsets made by different manufacturers while the latter sticks with Android phones made by Google.

Each of the four manufacturers Google focuses on includes a little comment. For example, about OnePlus Google writes: “OnePlus: The best of Google security meets extra fast processing power.” For Samsung, the comment says, “Samsung: The best of Google personalization meets striking design.”
So what does Google say about Motorola? Speaking about the tendency for Motorola to deliver close to stock Android, Google states that “Motorola: The best of Google simplicity meets uninterrupted performance.” And for Pixel, Google gets it right by saying, “Pixel: The helpful Pixel phones by Google.” Of course, think of the little things that Pixels can do such as Magic Eraser to eliminate unwanted items on a photo.

Or there is the At a Glance widget reminding you to turn off the flashlight, disable the alarm with a holiday (and the opportunity to sleep late) coming the next day, and helping Android users to get the first crack at installing software updates. These are certainly useful features available on Pixel handsets.
