Both handsets have impressive hardware. The Snapdragon 821 represents the top of the Android tree at the time of writing, and Apple’s A10 Fusion processor does the same. RAM isn’t important at all here, since Android needs more RAM, and IOS …well it’s fine at 2GB+
Screen sizes are equal, but the Pixel XL just edges it with a QHD resolution.
Google has really shouted about its new camera hardware, but we’re sceptical that it can better Apple’s dual assault. So it’s Apple ahead on this one!
Neither platform has had it better when it comes to the OS. Yet those with big appetites might struggle with the Pixel’s limited storage options as Apple goes up to 256GB this time, and Pixel is limited to 128GB.
