Google Pixel OR Apple Iphone 7 ??? Which One Should You Buy

Launched in October 2016, Google’s Pixel packs in a lot of features with it.

The smartphone comes with 1.6 GHz Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and 4GB of RAM coupled with the usual connectivity features : Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, 3G and 4G and sensors.

The smartphone supports Nano-SIM technology and supports single sim.

The smartphone sports a 12.3MP camera and 8MP font camera and this is where iPhone 7 takes a hit when it comes to the camera - it comes with a 12MP camera and  7MP front camera

So if you are one of those who likes photography or click lots of selfies Google Pixel is a better option for you !!!

Also, the phone runs on Android Nougat 7.1 which is pretty cool. However, since its launch it has faced stiff competition from Apple’s iPhone 7 which was launched in September, 2016.

Both the phones belong to the high-budget category. iPhone 7 competes with Pixel while the iPhone 7 Plus competes with the Pixel XL variant.

While the Google’s Pixel price (32GB) is  Rs. 55,500 and the iPhone 7 price (32GB) is Rs. 57,800, the prices of iPhone 7 Plus and Google Pixel XL lie at Rs. 71,390 and Rs. 67,000, respectively

Both phones support only Nano-SIM which seems a bit constricting , an alternative slot for a micro-SIM would have been great.

Moving onto iPhone 7 Plus and Google Pixel XL, we see that both have similar pixel densities (401 and 534 respectively). However,  GooglePixel comes with a brighter screen which I think makes it more desirable than Iphone 7

Both the devices don’t offer expandable storage options, which is a big drawback.

As for connectivity options, both are almost similar, if not same.

IPhone 7 comes with IP67 dust and water resistance but the same cannot be said for Pixel.

Both come with awesome colours and designs and almost same screen sizes, so they have a very similar feel.

Now, another thing to consider is VR capabilities

Google Pixel XL has a quad-HD screen which is great for VR experience with Google’s Daydream VR.


Well to put your concerns to rest UnlockRiver conducted drop tests for both the devices, iPhone 7 and Google Pixel, and dropped them from 1,000 feet from a drone , while both of them got shattered,Google Pixel’s shape was somewhat better than iPhone’s

That way, Google Pixel’s body is stronger and sturdier than Apple Iphone 7.

Google Pixel comes with Google Assistant built into it and since I am fan of AI I would prefer google Pixel to Apple Iphone 7, Apple’s Siri is pretty awesome, but I find Google Assistant more intuitive and intelligent than Siri in some aspects.

While both smartphones are pretty awesome, it is up to the buyer to choose which smartphone suits his or her needs.
Android’s functionality and customizability will of course be preferred by developers and advanced users, while iPhone’s smoothness in performance is also a big draw.

So,if you want to choose between these two giants? Choose wisely.
