Pixel 2 vs iPhone 8

Pixel 2 vs iPhone 8

The OG Google Pixel will get you $360 off the Pixel 2. It's an exciting time for Android fans, but tempering that excitement is news that the Google Pixel 2 XL may have some "issues" with its display.

"A key ingredient to the IPU's efficiency is the tight coupling of hardware and software-our software controls many more details of the hardware than in a typical processor", Google explains. The IP67 rating means the Pixel 2s can be dunked in 1 m (3.3 ft) of water for up to half an hour, while the V30's slightly-higher rating means it can survive that long down to 1.5 m (4.9 ft). The availability roll-out varies country-by-country with the result being that in countries such as the UK and India, the phones would be available at a later date when compared to general availability in the United States. According to Google, the secondary chip is designed to compile ...

There are two new Pixels; the smaller Pixel 2 (starting at $649) is fine, but there's an embarrassing amount of bezel, so: nope. LG has decided to go with regular old adhesive this time around, so while battery removal isn't impossible, it certainly isn't something that's easily accomplished. Google plans to activate Pixel Visual Core at the time it releases Android 8.1 developer preview. After heavy testing the past week, we've found both to be premium smartphones, rightfully deserving of a spot in the same league as the iPhone 8, Samsung's S8, and Galaxy Note 8. At the moment, it doesn't serve any actual function, but it will once Android 8.1 arrives.

Annoyingly, although the iPhone 8 can also fast charge, it won't do so with the bundled charger. It was so cool that iFixit even wrote a separate article about Active Touch and how Google accomplishes it.

Lightweight and easy to operate, the Pixel 2XL will be a hit with those who want a phone that can take beautiful pictures, give you extra screen for viewing films and games and a great battery life. In addition to handling music and phone calls, they will enable access to Google Assistant and Google Translate.

You can control Google's smart speakers, the Home or Home Mini, using the phones. One of the primary advantages of OLED versus LCD is wider color gamut, and yet the Pixel 2 XL is so blatantly off the mark, it could nearly pass for a vintage Instagram filter. The Pixel 2 is especially strong in challenging situations, for example a brightly backlit scene, or an image that includes both dark trees and bright blue skies.

There's free, unlimited cloud storage for all your photos and videos so you will never have to delete a picture again. Here we'll compare the two phones to explain how their features differ and which is best suited for your needs.

While the smaller-sized Pixel 2's 5-inch AMOLED panel appears to be perfectly serviceable as far as flagship smartphone displays go, it's surprisingly the more expensive model's 6-inch POLED screen that is presenting problems. The Pixel 2 lags behind a little, but should still put in a solid day's work under moderate use.

The squeeze sensors (one of which you can see below) consist of a flexible PCB "wrapped around both sides of a line of steel chunks, with strain gauges bridging the gaps between the metal bits".

What Google didn't mention at the Pixel 2 launch was that this year's devices feature the company's first custom silicon.
