The Pixel Smartphone Is Actually Made By HTC, Not Google. Just to set the record straight. Everything in Google's latest Pixel smartphones was manufactured by HTC in Taiwan, not Google, as the search giant wanted people to believe in its launch narrative earlier this week.
Pixel and Pixel XL are Android smartphones designed, developed and marketed by Google. They were called "the best Android phones you can buy" and received praise for camera quality and performance.
Google was founded in 1998 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were Ph.D. students at Stanford University, California. Together, they own about 14 percent of its shares and control 56 percent of the stockholder voting power through supervoting stock.
The company signs all its products, "Designed by Apple in California," but in the U.S., design is as far as Apple is willing to go. The tech giant outsources hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs to countries like Mongolia, China, Korea and Taiwan.
Google Pixel is a line of consumer electronic devices from Google that run either the Chrome OS or Android operating system. The Pixel brand was introduced in February 2013 with the first generation Chromebook Pixel. The Pixel line includes laptops and smartphones, together with (from 2015 to 2017) the Pixel C tablet.
The Nexus One was manufactured by HTC and released in January 2010 as the first Nexus phone. It was released with Android 2.1 Eclair, and was updated in May 2010 to be the first phone with Android 2.2 Froyo.
The pixel (a word invented from "picture element") is the basic unit of programmable color on a computer display or in a computer image. Think of it as a logical - rather than a physical - unit. The physical size of a pixel depends on how you've set the resolution for the display screen.
PIXEL DIMENSIONS are the horizontal and vertical measurements of an image expressed in pixels. A digital camera will also have pixel dimensions, expressed as the number of pixels horizontally and vertically that define its resolution (e.g., 2,048 by 3,072).
An image 480 by 360 pixels, at a screen resolution of 72 dpi. The same image, 480 by 360 pixels, but at a print resolution of 300 dpi. A close-up of a screen representation of the image and the printed page version.
It's not your printer, it's most likely the file, because your file is the wrong dpi/ppi (dots per inch or pixels per inch). Your computer monitor shows images at a web resolution of 72 dpi (that's 72 dots per inch). A common photograph print resolution is 300 dpi (that's 300 dots per inch).
I am sure everyone has seen image size requested as 600 x 400 pixels at 72 dpi. Or 300 dpi. When an image is described as 600×400 pixels, then the dpi (or ppi) value is of no consequence. It means nothing. people use dpi (dots per inch) when they mean to say ppi (pixels per inch).
DPI stands for Dots Per Inch which technically means printer dots per inch. Today it is a term often misused, usually to mean PPI, which stands for Pixels Per Inch. So when someone says they want a photo that is 300 dpi they really mean that they want 300 ppi.
When the resolution of a screen goes from 96 PPI to 120 PPI, the size of the pixels gets smaller; therefore everything on the display is smaller. When the Windows setting is used to increase the resolution from 96 DPI to 120 DPI, it is compensating for the smaller pixels, and therefore everything is larger.
Printing. A setting of 300 DPI (ppi)tells your printer to print a dot (a pixel) 1/300 of an inch in size, or 300 Dots (Pixels) Per Inch. A 96 DPI (ppi) setting tells your monitor to display a pixel 'element' at 1/96 of an inch or 96 pixels elements per inch on the screen.
In the table pictured below, the DPI is shown next to “Resolution” as 300 pixels/inch. Output (Print) Size: The size in inches of the print that you want to make from your digital file. For example, if you order a 4x6 print, your output (print) size is 4 inches x 6 inches. DPI of print: DPI means Dots Per Inch.
A higher DPI mouse means that you can move more precisely. This means that a cursor on a higher-DPI mouse won't "fly" as much as a lower-DPI one, allowing you to have better control. So yes, they're good for gaming, but only up to a certain point.
In printing, DPI (dots per inch) refers to the output resolution of a printer or imagesetter, and PPI (pixels per inch) refers to the input resolution of a photograph or image. DPI refers to the physical dot density of an image when it is reproduced as a real physical entity, for example printed onto paper.
