You should make a iPhone 7 VS Pixel. The pixel phones are practically same, but iPhones have differences between standard and plus variant. They even have differences between 32 GB and 128 GB. This doesn't happen with Pixel.
Why not they include S7e and LG V20 also vivo xplay5 and Nubia z11.LG v20 and pixel will rule in camera phone competition
Can we have the RAW files from the camera?
This test only shows the processed JPG results not the whole picture(pun not intended).
The iPhone's camera showing less details could be due to a worse sharpening/over de-noising post-processing or it could be because of a lower lens quality - there is no way we can tell from the JPG files. The stock camera apps are just BS!

there are some android features from 2011 which still haven't made it to your beloved iphone.

You just look at specs and rant. Sorry paper spec boy, stop reading specs and get out of your basement and go out and test phone for REAL.
VoloKin Project, 31 Oct 2016As an long term Android fanboy I must admit that the better phone is the iPhone 7+. The Pixel ... moreHow? Even with the faults of the pixel, it still has a better display, camera, software. All the iPhone has is superfluous performance that only shows in benchmarks. Battery life is similar, design on both is uninspired
Both are not going to win beauty pageant. I agree.. Except if the Pixel wears the white-blue dress.. I like the Pixel design only with the "really blue" color option. Too bad it's limited edition.
It's fine to see this comparison, but do you think we could get the actual review of the regular Pixel, before we start running the comparison articles?
Camera quality is subjective in these tests. I can't tell which images captured the scenes more accurately because I wasn't there.
Perhaps next time, it would be better to use a third DSLR with manual controls as a control group?
Just because an image is more saturated and pleasing to the eye doesn't mean it's necessarily better - depends on your own tastes I guess.
I can post process and image if I need it punchier.
Lol that second HDR example on the i7 is downright terrible. And also, on a more positive note, the Pixel XL's HDR+ in both daylight and nighttime is just incredible. It works like magic in low light, very impressed. Can't say the same abt the i7's camera though.

Pixel XL's HDR+ is actually an automated photoshop. In other words: cheating. But it's acceptable if it gives good photos.
However, you don't have manual controls with Pixel XL and HDR+. If you install 3rd party camera app to get manual controls, you won't have the advantages of HDR+ mode. Plus, Pixel XL is lacking of OIS and affected by flaregate. And the aperture is relatively (f/1.8 is the standard today) dim, it's only f/2.0.
The second camera in iPhone 7 Plus is a joke. It has dimmer aperture and no OIS. So it has worse quality. You can't even control when to use it.
