Finally, Google has announced their Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones, and it’s not a surprise that many people are asking themselves which one would be a better choice: iPhone 7 or Google Pixel. Released on September 7, the latest Apple product is still well-placed on the market, the company taking pride in having the best smartphone on the market. At the same time, Google claims that they have the best smartphones released this year. So where does the truth lie?
Performance. iPhone 7 runs on the best chipset produced by TSMC, namely the A10 Fusion. It is in fact a quad-core, 64-bit processor that combines with a six-core GPU. Meanwhile, Google offers the latest Qualcomm product, the Snapdragon 821, which is also quad-core, together with an Adreno 530 GPU. However, since the Pixel is out only on October 20, we can’t know for sure which one is faster.
Display. iPhone 7 let its bigger brother, iPhone 7 Plus, to enjoy the best display technology, while it only received a 4.7 inches display and a resolution of 750×1334, at a density of 326 ppi. At the same time, Pixel has an AMOLED capacitive screen and a 1080p resolution, with a density of 441 ppi. It also brings Corning Gorilla Glass 4, while Apple counterbalances with a 3D Touch feature.
Camera. iPhone 7 definitely has a great camera, following the Apple tradition. It impresses through a 12 MP sensor, a f/1.8 aperture, phase detection autofocus and OIS, together with dual tone flash. Google Pixel also brings phase detection auto-focus and dual-LED flash, as well as a 12 MP single lens camera. However, the primary camera here has a f/2.0 aperture and does not include optical stabilization. Google also brags about their phone having the shortest capture time ever, but we can’t know for sure until the device is out.
