Google Pixel 2 vs. iPhone X vs. Galaxy S8: how the phones compare


Advertisements

Google has officially taken the wraps off the second generation of its Pixel smartphones — the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL. If the original Pixel was a chance for Google stop standing on the sidelines and show the rest of the world how to make a great smartphone, the Pixel 2 looks like what happens when you take an already great phone and put it through a year of refinement.

On the hardware front, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL look like they’ll stand up next to any of their contemporaries from Apple or Samsung. Google included a top-of-the-line Snapdragon 835 processor, better displays, and a camera that somehow improves on the already stellar one found on the original Pixel. There are, of course, a few quibbles: Google has sadly followed Apple’s lead in removing the 3.5mm headphone jack, and while the Pixel 2 XL features an edge-to-edge QHD OLED display, the regular Pixel is beset by bezels that feel particularly dated when compared to other 2017 flagship phones.

But if Google’s phone meets the competition when it comes to hardware, the company is hoping that its advantages in services and software — in particular AI and machine learning for things like Google Lens and Google Assistant — will be enough to make the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL stand out among the current crop of excellent smartphones.

While it’s too early to say which of 2017’s smartphones will reign supreme, with the announcement of the Pixel 2, it’s finally possible to see how the best phones from Apple, Google, Samsung, and more stack up head-to-head. And while specs never tell the full story, we’ve put together a handy chart to help you decide which smartphone will get the coveted place in your pocket or bag.
