For those fans of the Google Suite, there’s no denying that Google’s phones have made life easier. With the latest models already making the best Android phones of 2024, the seamless integration into Gmail, Drive and Calendar are just some of the perks of these powerful phones. If you want the best you can get, then the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are the latest generation of Pixel phones and some of the best flagships on the market. That does mean that they’re quite expensive, although, luckily, there are still quite a few deals, both in direct discounts and trade-in offers, that can discount the price significantly.

In addition to impressive new AI and camera features, other notable upgrades include Google’s new Tensor G3 processor, which powers both models and brighter screens on both phones. The smaller Pixel 8 is also getting a higher 120Hz refresh rate display, up from 90Hz in the previous-gen model and the Pixel 8 Pro gains a neat new temperature sensor.

Note that in our ongoing review of the Pixel 8 Pro, CNET uncovered some problems with its cameras that we felt were serious enough to warrant holding off on recommending you buy it. Google says it’s working to quickly solve these issues via a software update and we’re confident that it will. We had no such problems with the Pixel 8 and rated it very highly.
