So The Battle has begun Between The 2 Premium Phones : Google Pixel 2 & iPhone 8. See Who wins It….
After the launch of iPhone 8, Google has finally brought the Google Pixel 2. Google Pixel will be available from November 2017(1st of the month for Indian customers). You might get confused which 1 to buy so we have brought you the best between the 2 of them. Excited to know who has won the battle? Well then let’s start off the battle :
Well none of them look astonishing, but in comparison with Pixel 2, iPhone is much better in looks. Due to the all-glass backs iPhone 8 is more elegant, also they support wireless charging too.
The Pixel 2 measures 5.7 x 2.7 x 0.3 inches and weighs 5.01 ounces, while the iPhone 8 is 5.5 x 2.7 x 0.29 inches and weighs 5.22 ounces. So Google gets points here for delivering a bigger 5-inch screen (versus 4.7 inches) in a lighter design.
The Pixel 2 XL delivers a 6-inch screen in a 6.2 x 3 x 0.3-inch package that weighs 6.2 ounces, while the iPhone 8 Plus (6.24 x 3.1 x 0.3 inches, 7.13 ounces) is taller and wider and heavier, despite having a smaller 5.5-inch screen.
Overall iPhone 8 wins because of the premium glass back design and its comfortable feel.
Pixel has just been kicked off in this segment. Apple’s A11 Bionic chip has paced the iPhone to record-breaking results in synthetic benchmarks, but it also outpaced the Pixel 2 on real-world tests. Though Pixel has 4GB RAM but the Embedded M11 Motion Coprocessor Processor in iPhone 8 makes it run the fastest. On Geekbench, which measures overall performance, the iPhone 8 hit 10,170, compared with 6,282 for the Pixel 2.
No doubts at all iPhone 8 is the king.
Well in this section Pixel 2 has gained a lead over iPhone 8 finally. The Pixel 2 has OLED panel and the 5-inch Pixel 2 (1920 x 1080 pixels) look richer and more saturated, and whites are more of a pure white. With the 4.7-inch iPhone 8 (1334 x 750) gives much sharper images rather than the Pixel 2. Unlike Google’s phones, the new iPhones sport True Tone displays, which means the white balance on the screen automatically adjusts based on ambient light; this could make reading easier on the eyes.
So Pixel 2 has a much richer screen than the iPhone 8.
Well this section does matter a lot to customers, let’s see who wins. According to tom’s guide, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus have the edge when it comes to sheer photo quality. Apple’s handset delivered more vibrant colors and better contrast in a series of shots. With 12.2 MP the Pixel 2 offers better detail and more consistent exposure. Plus, both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are capable of taking Portrait shots that blur out the background from both the front and back cameras, thanks to advanced post processing. iPhone 8’s advanced 12 MP rear camera packs a larger and faster sensor, a new color filter, deeper pixels, and optical image stabilization for photos and videos. The camera enables digital zoom up to 5x. Also the iPhone 8 Plus can do portraits with its dual back cameras.
No doubts that iPhone 8 has beaten Pixel 8 straightaway.
Battery Life :
The Pixel 2 has beaten i[hone 8 in this segment. With its 2700 mah battery, it lasts much longer than the Apple’s beast. According to Tom’s Guide Battery Test, which involves continuous web surfing over LTE, the Pixel 2 lasted 11 hours and 7 minutes, and the Pixel 2 hit 12:09.
At the end of the day Pixel 2 lasts longer.
Special Features :
Both support wireless charging but iPhone 8 has the advantage over the Google phone because but Pixel 2 don’t support the Qi standard, so they simply won’t work with a growing number of wireless charging pads. But Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL offer more compelling special features overall, as Google Assistant is smarter and more versatile than Siri, and you can access it with just a quick squeeze of the bottom of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. With the new Google Lens feature can recognize objects (anything from landmarks to businesses to signs with phone numbers) so you can instantly act on that info. Also with accessories like Daydream headset for VR and Pixel Buds the phone is more smarter.
Google assistant is a better personal assistant than Siri.
