These two phones are quite similar in terms of design, price and specification, some may go as far to say that if you prefer the Android operating system go for the Google Pixel but if you prefer Apple operating system go for the iPhone 7.
Although the Google Pixel beats the iPhone 7 on a number of different factors, such as the screen size and battery life. For us, the iPhone 7 just about gets the win here due to its innovative new features (such as its water resistant body and improved 3D touch home button) and improvements to key areas, such as the camera quality.
However, for a first real attempt by Google, this is a great effort and their only real major criticism was the price. Hopefully, Google will develop the next phone further and perhaps lower the overall cost to make it more affordable.
