Apple iPhone 7 vs Google Pixel

They have just finished the Google presentation called Made by Google in which they have presented all kinds of hardware designed by themselves, something we knew they were willing to do but never dared.

Normally they would ask other companies to design their devices with Android Stock, i.e. the unadulterated version of Android. In this presentation we have witnessed the arrival of two new terminals Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL. As you can expect in iPadizate we bring you the comparison of iPhone 7 vs. Google Pixel: Apple vs. Google. Who will be victorious?

The first view of a terminal is the determinant for the future user , so its design can be placed in the first line. In the Google Pixel we see a quite innovative design, combining gloss and matt on the back – normally, manufacturers opt for one of these finishes. We have to admit that in spite of the fact that it draws our attention, it gives a pretty cool result .

However, nothing can compare to the Jet Black of the iPhone 7 , a finish that makes everyone’s mouth water and predisposes them to empty their piggy banks in order to acquire it. Apple works much more on its devices, abandoning all types of plastic to make our experience more premium.


In the absence of a real test of both devices hand by hand, we can check their specifications on the table . Here in hardware we have a clear winner: the Google Pixel as it has twice as much RAM as our iPhone 7. But, there is always a but, Apple does not need more than two gigs to make your iPhone go like foam. iOS is a very robust system that has a perfect multitasking management, so it requires less amount of RAM. Although yes, we can’t deny that having twice as much RAM never hurts.


Google has been in charge of bringing us today a new more complete ecosystem , with its new virtual assistant: Google Assistant and its new products for the home. However, as we always say, nothing can cope with the apple ecosystem.

For years, Apple has been working on creating its own environment in its terminals, with which you can interact, change files, receive calls in which you decide… among many other things. All this makes the ecosystem of Apple and Siri the most complete one we know at the moment .

Protection against water and dust

Until this September we spent months and months throwing knives at Apple to adapt to their competition and bring us an iPhone with water resistance. So, finally we have a waterproof iPhone that we can use without fear in the rain , in the pool or on the beach.

Google for God’s sake! It can’t be that one of the biggest companies in the world hasn’t thought of introducing water resistance in the devices that mark their new stage, .

Minijack connector

We thought it was very important to add this section as there will be many users who are very unconvinced with Apple’s decision to remove the mini-jack connector. So we say that the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL if they have a minijack connector .

Google hasn’t decided, yet , to take such a risky leap? I repeat, yet.


Another controversial issue for users is the resolution of devices , although Apple has decided not to put large resolutions, Google has. It is true that Apple saves resolution quite well on its Retina screens, even if they are low they look exceptional. However, not everyone can use this and that is why Google has implemented a 5-inch FHD screen in its device.

This means that if you want to consume multimedia with good specifications on the table, Google beats Apple in this section . However, we have to say that the iPhone 7 user experience leaves nothing to be desired.

Which terminal would you be left with? We hope that we have helped you in your decision or that we have clarified your doubts about these terminals.
