Google Pixel 2 vs iPhone X vs Samsung S8
We determine the buzz-worthy phones for you
In September, marking iPhone’s 10-year anniversary, Apple showed off the arduous iPhone X. Then in October, a rival tech brand Google debuted the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL, carrying Android 8.0 Oreo.
Meanwhile, Samsung and Apple have been all-time competitors. The latest iPhones and Galaxy 8-series phones are both battling each other in phone shops across the world. But, hey, which one is the best for you? Let’s dive into the key differences between the three mega devices and see which one fits your needs the best.
The iPhone X has entirely changed its face compared to all Apple devices to this date. iPhone X’s Super Retina display uses a new OLED panel, which utilizes the handset’s entire front. Thus, Apple had to ditch the Home button, along with the Touch ID fingerprint scanner. Overall, the iPhone X is an attractive handset. However, the screen “notch” may have altered the opinion. And if you ignore the notch, then probably the iPhone X is one of the prettiest smartphones out there.
Comparatively, Google has presented a mixed bag regarding the design. Google Pixel 2 is quite similar to last year’s Google Pixel: holding the dual-tone rear and heavy bezels. But the Google Pixel 2 XL is where matters have actually developed. Google too, like Apple and Samsung, has chosen the all-screen front design.
The S8 and iPhone X look quite the twins, since Apple opted for a smaller bezel around its screen. However, anybody who’s held a Galaxy S7 Edge will get familiar with the phone soon enough.
Base verdict: Design
The absence of a home button is strife for Samsung and Apple phones. Apple has dealt with this issue by evolved an original swipe-based navigation system. You can close apps by simply swiping up from the bottom of the screen. The Galaxy S8 offers a pressure-sensitive, undetectable home button. Galaxy S8 is devoted in eradicating the left and right parts of the bezel, for almost no visible edge.
1. APPLE iPhone X
Seriously, the iPhone X is a prevailing phone. You get a large, pixel-dense 5.8-inch screen, along with a display resolution of 1125 x 2436 pixels. The mobile is powered by the supremely nippy A11 Bionic chip, too. That’s a custom-built processor designed by Apple, offering six cores and rapid performance. It’s one of the fastest mobile chips we’ve ever seen, so you certainly won’t be disappointed in how fast the iPhone X runs. Other incentives include 3GB of RAM, and storage options including 64GB or 256GB. The other key feature is a dual-camera module on the back, which makes use of an f/1.8 aperture for striking depth-of-field and classy portrait shots. Lastly, iPhone X uses a new facial recognition system termed Face ID, which substitutes the longstanding fingerprint-scanning Touch ID the user authentication system. However, Apple has receiver decent amount of flak for its Face ID technology.
2. GOOGLE Pixel 2
Relatively, the Google Pixel 2 sports a small 4.97-inch display, offering a lowly Full HD resolution. The phone is economical, in objectivity, but it still is somewhat compact by 2017’s trends. Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are both powered by the Snapdragon 835, which is a high-performance processor manufactured by Qualcomm. Basically, this is fast as hell. The mobile is backed by 4GB of RAM, along with options 64GB or 128GB. Apple may have an edge with its 256 GB storage model; however, Apple’s trodden on RAM. The best incentive of Pixel 2 phones is ‘Edge Sense’, which lets you control aspects of the phone by pressing the sides.
3. Samsung Galaxy S8
The Samsung Galaxy S8 offers Exynos 8895 or Snapdragon 835, plus 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. This is very similar to Pixel 2. Samsung Galaxy S8 has a bigger screen with an equally higher resolution display. The quad-HD+ resolution of the S8 is quite similar to Pixel 2 XL.
The Google Pixel Phones aren’t worth the price that you are paying. Coming to the gloating iPhone X now, if you have that kind of budget to spend, then it is the phone for you. However, do not get sour because even on such a high price, iPhone X will be delivered to you with a few glitches here and there. And for the Samsung Galaxy S8, the mobile is comparatively cheaper as well as efficient at the price that is it offering.
