The last iPhone I had was a 3g. Since then I've used a Sony Xperia, Nexus 5, Idol 3, Asus Zenfone 2 laser, Nexus 5x, and S7. I'm an Android fan. But you missed one huge difference between the products:
Apple's products have historically received 4 years of updates after release. Google promises 2 years of updates for the pixel.
This was satisfactory for a Nexus device which cost half what an iPhone cost. But the pixel is roughly equal to the iPhone in cost, and 2 years of updates is insufficient.
I cant believe that so called mobile phone users are choosing phones solely because it takes better pictures??? Wtf!
I choose my phone based on power,performance and Productivity. Not because I can take pretty pictures or because I can play candy crap on it.
Either the market is changing to stupidity or there's a lot of twits out there?
If people are choosing solely based on how good a phone can take pictures why not buy the Nokia 808 sureshot? Or even more sensibly get a cheap phone and spend the rest on a decent DSLR camera!
google pixle its just a crap nothing more gsmarena should not compare this phone againts iphone 7 plus, only apple A10 will kill google pixle they should compare pixle vs iphone 6s or 6s plus
I like both but I am going for Pixel. This review purposely misses some great things. I think the design is world-class, clean, professional and character. Google will indeed be a beautiful swan in the making. A major innovative company that many of us use everyday on computers, directions etc and free. Every fantastic thing has a start and we'll done.
It gets my vote.
HTC and Google, marriage made in heaven.
A friend just got his Pixel and on Skype I was blown away how great it was compared to boardroom media devices. It is absolutely bloody amazing.
Abysmal screen to body ratio on both, with the Pixel less excusable. Even if both weren't massively overpriced, I wouldn't be interested.
Hey, check out the new Pixel I just got!'
The new what?
Replace Pixel with iPhone though, and the number of blank stares will be zero..
yeah..they will be like..great..he got another one..
and iphone has a 3rd year of design refinement??? when sony did it everyone was crazy mad at them for not changing omnibalance..yeah they look cool now..so different right??
Kd10, 31 Oct 2016Yep. Lol.Nope. Selling my GS7 for a Pixel. did a side by side with a friend who has a pixel...it's not even close, really. I love the GS7 (and samsung pay)...but I take a lot of pictures, and the Pixel's the best there is.
so the number 4th or 5th ranked android phone beats the iphone fair and square.
GSMArena didn't even compare the thousands of great features baked into android which just makes using it better than iOS.
battery life should be given to pixel since it supports fast charging.
Even though I had a couple iPhones, I decided that iOS is not for me. But if I had to choose only from these two, I'd pick the 7+ every day. The Pixel is way too expensive, ugly and with lesser features. Considering the fact that I use bluetooth headphones since 2 years ago, not to mention I drive a new car which also has bluetooth connection, so I couldn't care less about the 3.5mm jack. Still, thank God I can buy the phone I want, so my S7E fits nicely in my hand as we speak.
As a Android fan I have to say siri is much better than Google assistant. Google assistant is more robotic but siri is more natural
it's google designed, they said it hundreds of times already, HTC is just the manufacturer, just like Apple doesn't make anything themselves.
Now Google fanboys will say look why Pixel's price is like that, it even beats the sheep iPhone in camera section. Nice.
