The iPhone 8 has officially been announced, and we’re taking a look at how well the latest “Standard” iPhone stands up against the competition. This time around, we’re taking a look at the Pixel to help you decide which option is better in the long run.
Unlike Android OEM’s, Apple is usually pretty hush, hush about the specs for its devices, save for the screen size, processor, and camera. However, we already know a bit about the iPhone 8, as the device features a 4.7-inch LCD display, compared to the 5-inch AMOLED panel found on the Pixel.
As for the rest of the specs, we know that the iPhone 8 comes equipped with Apple’s new A11 Bionic processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. The amount of RAM seems like something you would see out of a budget phone, and this sentiment rings true considering the fact that Google’s Pixel comes equipped with double that amount at 4GB of RAM along with the Snapdragon 821.
When it comes to the camera, the iPhone 8 features a single 12MP rear sensor, which includes phase detection autofocus and OIS. Similar the iPhone 8, the Pixel does not feature a dual camera system, instead, opting for a single 12.3MP sensor along with EIS, phase detection, and laser autofocus.
Other than the cameras, the iPhone 8 includes the ability to wirelessly charge via an inductive Qi charging pad. Meanwhile, the aluminum body found on the Pixel prevents the standard Pixel from being able to do so. These devices are definitely worth comparing as it follows the good ole’ Apple vs Google flagship battle, but we’re also expecting to see the new Pixel 2 in the coming months.
