Google Pixel XL vs iPhone 7 Plus spec shootout: Google takes on Apple’s best


google-pixel-xl-vs-iphone-7-plus-spec-shootout

The iPhone 7 Plus is a powerhouse of technology, so it’s only fitting we compare it with Google’s impressive new Pixel XL. When you compare an iPhone, specs never matter—we already know the iPhone is extremely fast, even if it doesn’t have the specs to match. But it’s still fun to see how these two stack up on paper.

A few areas where the Pixel XL bests the iPhone 7 Plus is in battery (thanks to fast charging) and RAM. But the size of the Pixel XL is worth noting; the size to screen ratio beats out the iPhone 7 Plus, which has large top and bottom bezels.

You can see how these two stack up on paper in the table below.
