Technology is progressing rapidly, which has resulted in short lifetimes for smartphones. You can buy the latest smartphone, but within a couple of years, it will become redundant as there will be new phones and techs in the market. However, switching to the latest smartphones is challenging as they usually cost a fortune.

Google has introduced a solution to this dilemma in its new Pixel 7 lineup. The basic model of Google Pixel 7 has the latest specs at a low cost compared to its competitors.
