CLASH OF THE TITANS; GOOGLE PIXEL 2/ 2 XL VRS SAMSUNG S8/S8+

If you have been waiting to find out how the newly launched Google Pixel 2 & 2XL fares as compared to other 2017 flagship phones, then your wait is over. Today we match the Pixel against their main Android competitors, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+.

OPERATING SYSTEM

All four phones run the Android operating system, and although the Pixel 2 and 2 XL come preloaded with the latest version, Android 8 Oreo, it’s still being rolled out to the Galaxy S8 line. Google phones run a clean, minimalist version of the OS, while Samsung has its own tweaked version called Samsung Touchwiz.
CAMERAS

n terms of sheer megapixel numbers, both sets of phones have virtually identical cameras. On the software side of things, Google Lens lets the Pixel 2 and 2 XL recognize objects in frame and even perform a kind of real-world Google image search.

PROCESSOR

Qualcomm’s latest processor, the Snapdragon 835, is powering all four phones.

RAM

When it comes to RAM, 4 GB is about standard for most phones nowadays.
INTERNAL STORAGE

For most people, 64 GB of built-in storage is plenty, but Google offers the option to double that.
MICRO SD

For Galaxy users who later realize 64 GB isn’t enough for them, that storage can be expanded by up to an extra 256 GB with a MicroSD card. Pixel owners will have to make do with what they’re given.
BATTERY CAPACITY

In terms of capacity, the Google Pixel 2 XL leads the battery pack with 3,520 mAh, with the Galaxy S8+ so close behind the difference is negligible. In practice, you’ll still probably get a solid day’s operation out of all of these phones.
WIRELESS CHARGING

The glass-backed Galaxies can be wirelessly charged courtesy of a separately-purchased accessory, but the Google Pixels lack that functionality. It’s up to you how much of a loss that is, though: wireless charging still doesn’t have the range to be particularly useful yet.
PORTS

Both Samsung and Google have embraced USB-C for charging, but Google has followed Apple’s divisive lead and dropped the industry-standard 3.5 mm headphone jack. Speakers and headphones will need to be connected to the Pixel phones via Bluetooth or the included USB-C adapter.
DISPLAY RESOLUTION

Samsung has some of the sharpest displays in the phone business, with both models of the S8 boasting a resolution of 2960 x 1440. 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.
WATER RESISTANCE

The Google Pixel 2 and 2 XL have been rated IP67, which means they’ll repel splashes of water and day-to-day dust, and can survive total immersion in water to a depth of 1 m (3.3 ft) for up to 30 minutes. A rating of IP68 means the Galaxy phones can do the same down to a depth of 1.5 m (4.9 ft). It probably pays not to take them swimming though.
DIMENSIONS

Both of Samsung’s phones are a little taller and thicker than the new Pixels, but not quite as wide.
WEIGHT

While the Galaxy S8 is substantially heavier than the base model Pixel 2, Google’s phablet tips the scales slightly higher than Samsung’s.
PRICE

The Pixel 2 is the least expensive phone on the list, by a wide margin. A Pixel 2 XL with 64 GB of storage will leave a hole in your bank account about the same size as that of the Galaxy S8+.

CONCLUSION

After all this spoonfeeding, its only fair you give your honest comment on who carried the day. LOL
