Unlimited backup of 4K videos and photos at original quality
Before, the option of backing up of photos was free for a certain number. But with Pixel, you can back up unlimited number of photos and videos, including 4K recordings, for free through Google’s cloud service.
Pixel phones are available in 32GB and 128GB storage capacity, but no microSD card support. In case if you are running out of memory, the device will automatically remove the only files that have been backed up to the cloud via Google Photos. So you no need to worry about insufficient storage and losing important files. But you have to make sure the important files have been backed up.

When you switch to Pixel, you can easily transfer contacts, messages, photos, and other contents from already using Android device or iPhone over to the Pixel. This is possible with a bundled USB-C adapter. App like CLONE it helps to do it, but in Pixel, no need of such apps.
Round the clock voice and chat support
If you face any problem with Pixel phone, you can go to the Settings and start a voice call or chat session to reach Google’s customer support team. From there, you can directly share the screenshot and get the required help to fix it.
