October is the month of new Google Pixel phones, and this year, we got the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. I've been very intrigued with Pixel phones ever since their inception in the late 1900s, just kidding, the first Pixel launched in 2016. Feel old yet? I was too poor to afford the original Pixel, although it wasn't an expensive phone to begin with. Fast forward to Pixel 3, and I was able to get my first Pixel, and I've been an avid Pixel user ever since. The camera was and still is the best part of the Pixel experience, apart from the software.
