iPhone 8 vs. Pixel 2: Which is right for you?

Phones
This year, Apple released the iPhone 8 and Google launched the Pixel 2. Both are fantastic phones with pros and con. Both the iPhone and Pixel 2 are water resistant, which is great for extra protection. But they also don't have headphone jacks and you'll need to use wireless headphones or a dongle to listen to music. While neither phones have a mind blowing design, the iPhone 8 looks generally sleeker with its all glass back. But the Pixel 2 has a slightly larger display with a higher resolution. It also doesn't exhibit any of the reported screen issues She was found in the larger pixel to excel due to it's different screen technology. Both phones take fantastic photos and uses single lens rear camera with optical image stabilization. They can capture slow motion video and fun just view photos Too. But the Pixel 2 can take dramatic, focus-style portrait photos on both cameras. They don't always come out perfect, but it works pretty well and it's an enjoyable feature to have. The iPhone 8 has an A11 bionic processor from Apple, while the Pixel 2 has a snapdragon 835 chipset from Qualcomm. We run Benchmark test including Antutu, 3DMark and Geekbench. In every test the iPhone 8 consistently beat the Pixel 2, that this it mean that the Pixel 2 is a slouch at all. But when it comes to the numbers the iPhone 8 wins it. During our battery test for continuous video playback on airplane mode. The iPhone 8 lasted 14 hours and 12 minutes. It also has wireless charging. In the same test, the Pixel 2 didn't last as long. Clocking in 13 hours and 28 minutes. A large part On what fun you'll buy depends on what eco system your comfortable with. Apple's iPhone 8 runs OS 11. It has a digital voice assistant, Siri. iOS also features syncing is messages across devices and Apple pay The Pixel 2 runs Android Oreo with Google Assistant. Okay Google, what do fruit bats eat? It also has Google Lens, which calls up information about the world around you using the camera and photo app. Lens will roll out to other Android phones later. If you're already not deeply integrated in the Apple iOS ecosystem I'd personally go with a Pixel 2. True, it's processor isn't as powerful as iPhone 8 on paper. And it's battery doesn't last as long. But I prefer the Pixels sharper screen and camera features. It also starts out as about $50 less than the iPhone 8. So you could keep more dough in your wallet too. [MUSIC]
