Google launched the Pixel line in October 2016. It is the first 100% made-by-Google phone that feature impressive software and hardware.
The Pixel family has two members: the Pixel X and the Pixel XL. The phones have received positive feedback from tech experts, with many calling them “the best Android phones you can buy.” People who have used both Google Pixel and the iPhone 7 believe that the Pixel is much better than the iPhone 7. It features, a brighter display, an outstanding camera, the robust voice assistant, an unlimited cloud storage for photos, and a virtual reality integration.
In this post, I will present four reasons why people think the Pixel is better than the iPhone 7.
1. Pixel Has Impressive Camera
The Pixel features a 12.3-megapixel rear camera with a DXO Mark Mobile rating of 89. That compares to a 12-megapixel camera with an 86 rating in the iPhone 7.
DxOMark is the trusted industry standard for camera and lens image quality measurements and ratings. The organization says that the Pixel features the highest-rated smartphone camera it has ever tested.
The Pixel’s rear camera is paired with a fast f/2.0 lens, compared to f/1.8 lens in the iPhone 7. The Google phone lets users take high-quality selfies with its impressive front facing camera.
2. Better Display
The Pixel has a 5-inch AMOLED display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. The AMOLED display is much better than the LCD screen that Apple used in the iPhone 7. Tech experts say that the Pixel delivers sharper and crisper images at higher resolutions. The iPhone 7 features a 4.7-inch LCD display with a 1334 x 750 resolution, while the iPhone 7 Plus has a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
3. People Love Headphone Jack
Apple made a bad decision to ditch the standard 3.5mm headphone jack in the iPhone 7.
Many people I know still love the headphone jack, a century-old technology. By killing the headphone jack, Apple gave people a reason to switch to another smartphone.
When launched the new Pixel phones last year, Google did not forget to mention that the Pixel has a headphone jack.
4. Google Assistant is Just Amazing
The Pixel comes with Google Assistant, a digital assistant that is considered way better than Siri in the iPhones.
Google Assistant is an intelligent personal assistant designed to compete with Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s Cortana, and Amazon’s Alexa. Unlike its competitors, the Assistant can engage in a two-way conversation, thanks to Google’s natural language processing algorithm.
