For Apple fans, nothing beats the latest iPhones they launch every year. But outside the iOS world is another level of awesomeness you don’t want to miss.
Google’s latest handsets, announced on October 4th, are the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL. The company is hoping to have a strong competition against its rivals with these two phones. With Google trying to contend with Apple’s recently released iPhones, let’s focus on the battle of the smaller flagship phones– the Pixel 2 and the iPhone 8. Here are some of the main specs we want to know about these new gadgets in the market.
While the Pixel 2 has a 5-inch screen with a crisp OLED, Apple’s iPhone 8 has a slightly smaller 4.7-inch LCD screen. Google has a better image resolution by about two orders of a magnitude.
When it comes to figures, both phones are almost similar. The Pixel 2 starts at $649 while the iPhone 8 is just a little pricier at $699. Both base models have 64 Gigabytes of memory.
The Pixel 2 does not feature wireless charging as the new iPhones do. However, they do come with squeezable sides designed to activate Google’s virtual voice assistant. Also, no tapping is necessary to view important notifications such as the time and weather.
Google’s Pixel 2 has a superb 12.2-megapixel rear camera that has a slight edge over the 12-megapixel rear camera on the iPhone 8. Their front-facing cameras also feature a higher-quality 8-megapixel quality compared to iPhone 8’s 7-megapixel front camera.
It is no doubt that Google is getting serious about its hardware. That’s why consumers are getting more and more challenged on which handset to pick. Even die-hard Apple fans might find the Pixel 2 worth a try because of its magnificent features.
