The Pixel 2 is not much of an upgrade from the first Pixel; the hardware is almost the same and the new software updates will be available for the new model soon enough. Outside of a few gimmicks and the removal of the headphone jack it's virtually the same phone. See More
Google uses the Pixel line as a platform to show off their operating system instead of treating the software as a second-class citizen and it shows. The Android ecosystem, starting from Google Assistant is perfectly integrated with the hardware. By using the same technology as HTC which lets users squeeze the sides of their device, you can bring up the smart assistant at any point, even with a locked screen (of course, you have to unlock the phone to give the assistant any commands). This is a welcome change for people who disliked the "Ok Google" command. See More
The camera on the Pixel 2 is one of the best cameras on the market. It takes amazing pictures both on low and well-lit conditions. The camera software is where it truly shines though. It's able to automatically adjust the focus and lighting so you never end up with photos that are too lit or too dark. It also manages to find out where the edges of an object are and blur them accordingly. See More
The iPhone 8 lasts 14 hours on a single charge in airplane mode while continuously streaming offline video. Even though it does not tell the whole story on how it would fare during real-world use, tests show that you can use it comfortably for a full day on a single charge without worrying about battery life.

The iPhone 8 (with the X) is the first iPhone to implement wireless charging. What's more, Apple decided to implement the Qi standard for wireless charging which is shared by multiple manufacturers, making it easy to find a third-party non-expensive wireless charger . See More
The iPhone 8 is equipped with a camera that is significantly improved from predecessors. Both the rear and front cameras take amazing pictures, especially at low light. The shutter speed and focus have also been improved from the previous iPhone. The iPhone 8 can shoot 60fps, 4K video and 240fps, 1080p slow-mo which amounts to some serious video capturing capabilities. See More
The new 6-core, 64bit, A11 Bionic chip inside the iPhone 8 does not disappoint. Performance is smooth, as is expected from an iPhone, and, according to GeekBench, the iPhone 8 has 25% better performance on single core and 80% better performance on multi core compared to the iPhone 7. See More
The Xperia XZ Premium has a 5.5inch 4K display. It roughly has around 807 pixels per inch, which is far more pixels than the competition manages to display on their phone. This results in the sharpest images ever seen on a smartphone display. See More
The 19MP primary camera is packed with features. For starters, it has same RGB and IR sensors that improve color reproduction and focus speed respectively. There's also a CMOS sensor with phase detection autofocus that helps with low-light shooting. Finally, there's Motion Eye: a memory-embedded sensor that immediately processes images to minimize distortion. All of this hardware packed together manages to capture some of the most detailed and high-quality photos a smartphone can take, coming extremely close to the quality of photos taken by the S8 which is considered to have the best camera for this generation of smartphones.

Like the Galaxy S8, the LG G6 has a taller display than most phones: most have a 16:9 aspect ratio, the S8 has an 18.5:9, and the G6 has an 18:9, or 2:1. This is fantastic for Android's newer multitasking features, as well as just general use. The vast majority of apps support this new display, so you should have no problems with that. See More
The LG G6 has a 5.7" QHD display, yet its overall size is smaller than the Galaxy S7 Edge, and significantly smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus, both of which have 5.5" screens. This means that you get a bigger display with a more manageable form factor which makes it easy to use even with one hand. See More
