IPhone 8 Plus vs Google Pixel 2 XL - What's The Difference?

Oct 10, 2017, 00:16

Pixel 2 phones already have different exceptional features as compared to other rivals including iPhone X and Samsung's Galaxy S8. Or maybe you're still on the fence about whether or not to get one of Google's newest smartphones? This battery is bigger than any of those used in the Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 (S8+), or even iPhone 8 Plus, among others. When the both devices were launched people were surprised to see no head phone jack. It looks like the camera is going to be one of the key selling points of the 2017 Pixels, just as it was previous year.

Looking at the cameras, the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL are looking great with the same 12-megapixel camera, so none will take a better shot than the other. For the Google Pixel 2 XL you'll pay £799 for the 64GB model and £899 for the 128GB model.

Google continues to improve its artificially intelligent software, Assistant, aiming to make it available on TV, laptop, or through one's auto.

India pre-orders for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL start from October 26; the former will then go on sale on November 1 and latter on November 15. Both phones also lack wireless charging, but do have fast charging. except you need to buy a more powerful charger to take full advantage of it. €800 of value right there. The base Pixel 2 has a relatively-low 1080p resolution, while the 2 XL closes in on - but falls just short of - the resolution of Samsung's devices. Inevitably, Google's competitors will attempt to apply the same techniques to their phones.

Google's phone adds the new Active Edge pressure sensitivity to the sides, letting you squeeze the phone to bring up the Google Assistant.

The tech giant has also produced two new versions of its smart speakers, a laptop and a sleek new virtual reality headset known as "Google Daydream View". Google says it determines the important bits by registering "device motion and Bluetooth connections", so being paired to a Bluetooth connection in the auto appears to be a necessity.

The Home Max, however, is geared for quality audio and again, it uses AI to deliver it. This will automatically get toggled on when a user is driving. This means that even passengers who have this feature turned on will not receive the message and call notifications in a moving vehicle. Google says it offers an adapter as standard, but fans of the brand seem largely unconvinced by the shift away from 3.5mm audio jacks.

The Google Home Mini sports a much smaller form factor than its larger brethren, created to take on Amazon's Echo Dot, and matches its $49.99 price tag.
