Finally the wait is over! The battle begins of the greatest legends with Apple launching iPhone X, Samsung launching Note 8 and now cut – throat competition with Google launching PIXEL 2. Read more to find out who wins the FINAL SHOWDOWN
BATTLE ROUND 1
Mirror, mirror on the wall who is the biggest of us all?
-The 5-inch Google Pixel 2 is easy to hold and use in one hand compared to some of the bigger phones on the market. Google is sticking with a similar design to last year’s Pixel with the Pixel 2, highlighted by the two-tone back and a rear-mounted home button with a built-in fingerprint sensor. It’s a bit weird if you’re used to unlocking your phone with the home button on front, but you get used to it, and Google claims the Pixel 2’s sensor is the fastest around.
-Featuring a home button the Note 8 has their fingerprint sensor at the back and iPhone X features facial recognition unlocking system The Samsung S8, Note 8, and the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus all feature a home button on the front of the phone.
Below listed are the how the phones screen sizes & resolutions differ (Using the calculator approximate screen to body ratio) :
- Google Pixel 2: 5.0 inches & 1080 x 1920 pixels Display (67.9%)
- Apple iPhone X: 5.8 inches & 2436 x 1125 Pixels Display (82.9 %)
- Galaxy Note 8: 6.3 inches & 1440 x 2960 pixels Display (83.2 %)
While the screens on phones continue to get larger, we’re actually seeing some big screen phones that are easier to hold in one hand. This is because phone makers are getting better at shrinking the bezels, the dead space that surrounds a screen. That means you get a larger display while the phones stay the same size.
RESULT : If you’re checking the display size – Note 8 wins the battle. However, when it comes to displaying style they can’t be compared as each conquers a unique style and win in their own way.
BATTLE ROUND 2
We all love and rave about different applications and editing features with all the phones we buy. Android and IOS go hand in hand here as they both top the charts with crazy new apps all the time. So, you must be wondering what is the element that makes the difference? One word – CAMERA
When Google first launched Pixel it was the talk of the town and best of it’s type that relied on Google’s in-house “image fusion” technique to produce amazing HDR photos. Google’s Pixel was actually better and faster in low light than most of its competition. Recently, Pixel 2 also proved it as well as iPhone X and the Galaxy Note 8 have been able to do just as much and blown our minds away. Scores according to DxOMark listed below :
Google Pixel 2: Scored 98
Primary Camera: 12.2 MP | Secondary Camera: 8 MP
Apple iPhone X: Scored 97
Primary Camera: Dual 12 MP | Secondary Camera: 7 MP
Galaxy Note 8: Scored 94
Primary Camera: Dual 12.2 | Secondary Camera: 8 MP
RESULT : Google Pixel 2 wins the battle here!
BATTLE ROUND 3
As you’d expect with a phone launch, Google displayed mind-boggling features at the launch; using Google Lens to identify phone numbers, objects, and
other things in the real world; and an always-listening microphone that can tell you what song is playing around you, without you needing to ask.
While these things always sound cool, it remains to be felt and how useful they will be in the real world. Similarly, the new Pixels are also billed as “water & dust resistant” as are all the iPhone and Samsung models. Let’s not forget critical features such Speed, RAM & Battery which will make or break an impact on the overall functioning of the phone
|Feature||Apple iPhone X||Google Pixel 2||Samsung Galaxy Note 8|
|Battery||Non-removable Li-Ion 2716 mAh battery||Non-removable Li-Ion 2700 mAh battery||Non-removable Li-Ion 3300 mAh battery|
|Chip Set||Apple A11 Bionic||Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 835||Exynos 8895 Octa – EMEA|
|CPU||Hexa-core (2x Monsoon + 4x Mistral)||Octa-core (4×2.35 GHz Kryo & 4×1.9 GHz Kryo)||Octa-core (4×2.3 GHz & 4×1.7 GHz) – EMEA|
|Internal||64/256 GB, 3 GB RAM||64/128 GB, 4 GB RAM||64/128/256 GB, 6 GB RAM|
Lastly, though it’s not a “feature” so much as the lack of one, the most vital difference for people upgrading from an older phone will be the lack of a headphone jack. The Samsung phones all still have one, but there’s no longer an analog headphone jack on the iPhone X or the new Pixel phones. All of the jack less phones come with dongles to plug your analog headphones into the charging port USB-C on the Pixels, Lightning on the iPhone but you’ll need to keep it with you.
RESULT : Difficult to decide a winner here
