Google Pixel 2 XL Vs iPhone X- Select the Best Handset

The iPhone X and Google Pixel 2 XL has already been unveiled and both the devices will be rolled out in November. Since the iPhone X and Pixel 2 XL are from the houses of giant companies- Google and Apple, we expect flawless performance and have an enriched user experience.




The iPhone X and the Pixel 2 XL are terrific handsets but there is a slight difference between the two, which will surely make one of them the winner.

The Apple iPhone X is chipped by the A11 Bionic processor paired with a 3GB RAM with six cores and graphics processing unit that is 30% swift than the iPhone 7. The super powerful processor easily supports the latest Face ID technology.

The Pixel 2 XL is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and managed by the Adreno 540GPU paired with a 4GB RAM. Though the Pixel 2 XL runs on a higher RAM, it is not as powerful as iPhone X because the Android platform manages the memory in a different way. So it cannot be compared with iOS. The iOS doesn’t need more RAM for a buttery smooth performance.

The iPhone X offers 256GB as an internal storage capacity whereas the Pixel 2 XL holds a 128GB internal capacity on board and in both the devices you cannot boost the internal storage.

Don’t you think iPhone X beats Pixel 2 XL in this category?



The iPhone X comprises of the latest technologies which were never seen before. And the Pixel 2 XL also is an upgraded version of last year’s Pixel XL. The rear camera holds a 12MP snapper with a f/1.8 aperture. While the front camera holds an 8MP lens.

Google could have gone for the dual lens camera set up instead of the single lens, as many smartphone companies are opting for the dual rear camera in their flagship devices.

Whereas, the iPhone X on the other hand, sports a dual 12MP rear camera which includes wide-angle with f/1.8 aperture and telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture. The Portrait Lightning Feature enables the user to click fantastic images even on dim light surroundings. The Bokeh Effect blurs the background and only focusses on the subject.


The front camera holds a number of functions. The selfie camera roots a 7MP snapper and embeds the True Depth system. It also features the infrared camera, and all these works together to identify the user’s face in any light condition. The front camera can also be used to animate the emoji by using the user’s facial expression.

So we can very well derive the fact that the iPhone X holds a tremendous camera as compared to Pixel 2 XL.



The Pixel 2 XL is powered by a 3520 non-removable battery while the iPhone X has a smaller battery of 2716mAH.  Both the devices feature the fast battery charging.

The iPhone X charges 50% in just 30 minutes whereas the Pixel 2 XL within 15 minutes provides up to 7 hours of battery. The iPhone X gets its power by a wireless charger using the Qi standard. The Google device doesn’t support the wireless charging.

Yes, here also Apple seems to grab the spotlight. What do you think?
