The Apple iPhone 8 and the Google Pixel 2 are announced just days ago.
Both companies have their fair share of pros and cons but when you compare the specifications of their devices, it is much easier to make that purchase decision.
From the looks of it, the Apple iPhone 8 focused more on the iPhone X that they continue to make smaller phones. It has a display size of 4.7-inch with a resolution of 1334×750 which is small considering most phones in 2017.
Google Pixel 2 however has a spacious 5-inch 1080p display which has a higher pixel count of 441 ppi making it the best-looking display you can go for. Both models don’t sport bezel less display and it is hardly a concern for the average user.
Under the metal body, the Pixel 2 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 while the iPhone 8 uses the latest A11 bionic chip. These phones when compared head to head doesn’t show any significant different in terms of performance.
They have the best processors available and have ample peripherals to support it. Google provides 4 GB of RAM while Apple offers just 2 GB. Both are available in 64GB storage variants in the base model and the pricier ones provide 128GB or 256GB storage options.
If you are to purely make a choice based on camera performance, the Google Pixel 2 is an easy winner against the Apple iPhone 8. The former has a 12.2-megapixel camera that can capture 4K videos and comes with optical as well as electronic image stabilization features.
iPhone 8 has a 12-megapixel camera as well but Pixel 2 managed to gain a mammoth score of 98 from DXO Marks, the company that rates the performance of smartphone cameras. In real world comparison, the photographs taken using the Google camera looks the best when compared against Apple and Samsung flagship models.
If your choice often goes to the one device that provides more bang for buck, the Google Pixel 2 is an obvious choice. Similarly, if photography matters more once again the former wins. Apple iPhone 8 comes into picture only when you value the brand and possibly enticed by the A11 bionic chip because it is an exclusive found only in their smartphone.
Besides, people who love the iOS interface and functionality may not prefer Pixel 2 Android 8.0 Oreo but for most this is an apt choice to go with.
