As good as your reviews are always, I found this one outstanding. Thanks for not falling for the hype and delivering an A class text.

Can you please do a camera shoot out test from both because both have same imx378. It will be an interesting comparison.
GSMarena, you need to show us more video samples and test. Puting the phone on a tripod and filming something that is that far away doesnt give us much. Maybe some stability tests, some panning around, to see how phones handles white balance and color, dynamic range shifts ???
Android users and manufacturers are thinking Pixels new AI software will eventually come to their phones. Don't be surprised if it and other software features don't make it to now competitors handsets. This is the new Google and it's just the beginning. Google will release more budget conscious devices soon.
So to conclude, compared to the s7 edge:
Worse battery life
Worse screen to body ratio and thickness
Worse hardware features like expandable storage and ip68
Camera, and ui are debatable
Better software support and better ai.
google should get its software and camera on Mi Mix and take over the world!
What GSMarena is trying to say is that the Pixel basically sucks, save from the camera, but hey there are better point and shoot camera's for that. Google failed, big time. Xiaomi Mi MIX destroys this iPhone wannabe any ol' day of the week.
