Pixel 2 vs iPhone X: Is Apple’s new flagship worth the premium price?

Two new shiny devices are here from Apple and Google and they’ve both certainly made their presence known. In the battle of the flagships, Google’s Pixel 2 goes up agaert_main_wide_image/public/2017/11/apple_iphone_x_vs_pixel_2.jpg?itok=eeN-JXHV” alt=””/>

To our hands, though, the Pixel 2 feels a bit nicer. Rather than the easily smashable glass black of the iPhone X, the Pixel 2 has a very nice textured aluminium rear with a glossy glass panel above it Being textured, the Pixel 2 also feels a lot firmer to hold in your hand than the iPhone X.
If you want a 3.5mm headphone jack… well, you’re out of luck on both. Maybe look at Samsung or OnePlus’ offerings ert_main_wide_image/public/2017/11/iphone_x_vs_pixel_2.jpg?itok=isVHkEDh” alt=””/>

Both phones produce incredible photos in low-light, although we did notice that the iPhone X does have some issues with using the zoom lens in poor lighting. Instead of reducing noise thanks to its bright aperture, the phone switches to the wide-angle lens, producing a cropped photo instead. The Pixel 2 obviously doesn’t have this issue, its wide-lens seems to be more reliably good than the iPhone X.
As for the front-facing camera, the Pixel 2 is much better than the iPhone X. The Pixel 2 has a crisp 8-megapixel camera, whilst the iPhone X has a lower-quality 7 megapixel one. Still, the iPhone X now lets you take Portrait Mode photos with the front-facing camera, something previously exclusive to the iPhone’s rear.
Both phones are excellent at capturing video in 4K, but the colour accuracy really lets the Pixel 2 down here, which is pretty noticeable when capturing video. Video on the iPhone X stays solid, however.
Pixel 2 vs iPhone X: Battery and Specifications
We haven’t had enough time to truly test the iPhone X’s battery, but at the moment it’s not looking too good, especially when compared with the Pixel 2. In our test, we found that the iPhone X’s 2,716mAh battery only lasted nine hours and 22 minutes in our video benchmark. The Pixel 2, on the other hand, with its very marginally smaller 2,700mAh battery, lasted a lot longer, eventually conking out at 14 hours and 17 minutes.
The iPhone X runs on Apple’s new A11 Bionic chip with a six-core CPU. Coupling this with 3GB of RAM makes it the fastest phone on the market when it comes to CPU and graphics processing. The Pixel 2 runs on the famous Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 2.35GHz octa-core processor and while it sounds impressive, it isn’t technically faster than the iPhone X. It does, however, have slightly more RAM than the iPhone X at 4GB.
The Pixel 2 comes in storage sizes of 64GB and 128GB. While the iPhone X comes in 64GB and 264GB.
It’s a shame that the highest storage capacity on the Pixel 2 is only 128GB as the iPhone X goes up to 264GB, which would be a much better storage size for taking advantage of the Pixel 2’s camera. Though Google does provide Pixel 2 buyers with unlimited cloud storage for their snaps in Google Photos until 2020.
Pixel 2 vs iPhone X – Price
I’m sorry iPhone X, but for all your fantastic qualities, the Pixel 2 is significantly more affordable and provides far greater value for money. At £999 for the basic 64GB model and £1299 for the 264GB model, it’s really hard to recommend the iPhone X over the Pixel 2. Google’s flagship retails for almost £400 less than the pricey iPhone, coming in at £629 for the 64GB model and £729 for the 128GB model.
If you take into account price, all of the improvements the iPhone X has over the Pixel 2 can be argued away. The Pixel 2 is nearly as good as the iPhone X and it is much, much, cheaper.
Of course, if money is the bar to entry, the iPhone 8 Plus is far more affordable, and not that far behind the iPhone X in terms of performance – so if you’re wedded to iOS, but don’t want to spend the Earth, that may be a sensible place to look next.
