Is It Worth To Buy a NEW Google Pixel XL Phone (Best Review)?
Google Pixel XL Size, Specs, Camera
The Google Pixel XL is grabbing fistfuls of market share away from Samsung after news of their exploding Note 7 phones soured the market. Between the two phones the Pixel XL is the lightest in terms of weight, but is also the thickest. It also includes a fingerprint sensor on the back.
Of all the screens and resolutions reviewed, the Pixel XL was also found to have the sharpest display. Size-wise, the Pixel XL and Apple iPhone 7 Plus both have 5.5 display. If you take a lot of photos with your smartphone, you’ll be glad to know that the Pixel XL also has the highest resolution camera at a whopping 12.3 megapixels. It also includes dual LED flash, laser autofocus and video stabilization features – all of which help you create stunning images and videos with crystal clarity.
Hardware-wise, the Pixel XL doesn’t exactly shine, but it doesn’t fail to impress either. With 4GB of RAM and either 32 or 128 GB storage options, there’s a lot of space here but no real room for expansion either. The Pixel does offer unlimited online storage, however, which is great for backing up photos and videos in case the phone gets damaged.
Is It Worth To Buy a NEW iPhone 7 PLUS Phone (Best Review)?
Apple iPhone 7 Plus Size, Specs, Camera
For Apple users who have the previous iteration of this in-demand device, the iPhone 7 may not truly offer anything revolutionary. If you’re new to owning an iPhone, however, there’s a lot to love about the 7 Plus. It has the largest available storage capacity as well as a dual lens rear camera setup for both wide angle and telephoto lens shots. At 12 megapixels, it’s a force to be reckoned with in terms of photo brilliance.
If display functionality is a key must-have for you, the iPhone 7 Plus’ pressure-sensitive display (called “3D Touch”) makes its case by offering different features depending on the force with which you press the display.
Much of the talk surrounding the iPhone 7 Plus is the removal of a headphone jack and the replacement with the new “Lightning” cable. Although there’s no headphone jack – there are stereo speakers. The battery is also charged by a Lightning cable.
And of course, both the iPhone 7 Plus and the Pixel XL offer users a wide range of apps and services via their respective operating systems. Both Android Nougat and iOS 10 respectively provide a number of in-demand apps via their catalogs. Pricing for the two devices is also similar.
So which one is truly worth the price? This depends on what you primarily plan to use them for. Both phones offer an incredible user experience with powerful functionalities and durable, well-built designs. No matter which one you choose, be sure to protect it with a sturdy case to help minimize the impact of dust, scratches, smudges and even water from ruining your new device. Good luck!
