For years, the iPhone has been the most dominant smartphone ever. Apple can always say that the integration of hardware and software is what makes the iPhone better than anyone else. In 2016, Google decides to play by Apple’s rules by making a phone themselves. The Pixel is the first phone fully designed by Google. It is the first phone to truly challenge the iPhone the right way. Some reviews say it is a home run. Some reviews say it’s mediocre.
If you want a high-end smartphone and you don’t want it exploding on your face, then you now have an additional phone to choose.
Which should you choose: Apple’s iPhone 7 or Google’s Pixel? I’m here to show you that.
Pick the iPhone 7 (or 7 Plus) if:
- You have an iPhone and you want to upgrade to a new one.
- You love iOS. It wouldn’t make sense if you didn’t unless…
- You are tired of the Android ecosystem. Probably because you don’t like the different Android phone makers?
- You want the latest apps! iOS gets the latest apps first and has more apps just for it.
- Despite some of its flaws, you just want a smartphone that “just works”.
- Your personal information is important and you don’t want some “company with four colors” to use your data for their needs.
- You want a voice assistant that helps you in basic tasks on your phone.
- You want the best of Apple, Google, and Microsoft in one phone. Think about that for a second.
- You drop your phone in the toilet or use it in the shower. (Guilty as charged.)
- You want a really shiny black phone. (Yes, there are people like that.)
Pick the Pixel if:
- You love Android to the core and you don’t like what other Android phone makers are doing.
- You hate Apple. (Duh.)
- You think Google’s vision of Android is the best ever. (Because they own Android?)
- You want all your photos to be stored in the cloud for FREE and at FULL RESOLUTION.
- You want your phone to be ready for VR. Google will be happy to sell you their Daydream View headset.
- You want a voice assistant that knows more about you and tells you relevant information about it.
- You are willing to trade your privacy for convenience. Good luck with that when the government asks for data.
- You want all the Google that you can get!
- You want a “Really Blue” phone. Get it?
Either phone is good for:
- taking good photos
- taking good videos
- accessing the internet
- basically anything you can do with a smartphone
- not exploding in your face (hahaha #RIPGalaxyNote7)
What I’m trying to say is that no matter which smartphone you choose, you’ll get a good one. You get either the best from Apple or the best from Google. I’m glad that they are bringing all the stops in the name of competition. Let us see who wins the holiday season this year! I know which one I’m cheering for. Hehe.
