With this, there is another contender in the market and that we call, the Google Pixel XL. Google Pixel XL packs some amazing and seriously impressive features that give the other models of Apple and Samsung, a tough competition. But can it reach the Galaxy S7 Edge’s lofty heights?
Consider the pros and cons of each device to better know them in detail.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge vs. Google Pixel XL – Pros & Cons
Pros and Cons of Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
There are number of things with the Samsung galaxy S7 edge, that you cannot list them in all positives. So, by observing closely the phone, I have gathered some of the pros and cons of Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge:
- Build Quality:
Without any doubt, Galaxy S7 Edge is one of the most beautiful looking smartphone out in the market shelves. not only beautiful outside, the phone is build strong enough withy the combination of amazing metal and glass, that makes it feel really premium to touch. Not only this, the design is amazing and the color range is awesome, that will definitely move some heads, when you take it out from your pocket.
- The Battery:
Well, the battery of the phone is considered to be one of the most durable, as it features 3600 mAh battery that can provide a user with the exceptional usage.
- The Camera:
The phone features an impressive 12 MP rear camera that is exactly the same as that of iPhone 7. Moreover, the camera has f/1.7 aperture and larger sensor size which enable the camera to perform well in low light and even sharper and brighter image.
- Water Resistant:
Well, water resistance is another pro for the phone that offers IP68 certification, that iPhone 7 cannot even match. This means, the phone can withstand the water depth of almost 1.5m.
- MicroSD Card Slot:
Thankfully, the Samsung Edge comes with the microSD expansion slot that makes it easy for the users to expand the storage of the phone, without paying thousands of dollars for opting higher storage smartphone.
- Non- Removable Battery:
This one con is a big deal for most of the Android users. It is often very good to carry some handy options for the additional battery, when you have no power resource. But unfortunately, Galaxy S7 Edge do not offer the swapping of batteries that is counted as a drawback of the phone.
Coming up to the next con is the phone is fragile. As the back and front of the phone is mostly made of the glass, it is more susceptible to breakage, even when you get your phone slightly hit by the wall or floor.
Pros and Cons of Google Pixel XL
You might have gone through the specs of the Google Pixel Xl, but you haven’t got to read its pros and cons.
- Powerful CPU and GPU:
Well having a Snapdragon 821 chip with Adreno 530 and a 4GB RAM would make a phone very strong and powerful. Thus, Google Pixel XL is a great phone especially for the gamers.
Having camera pixels higher than iPhone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, would definitely counted as a plus for the phone. Google Pixel XL features 12.3 MP rear camera with DXO score, that is a really brilliant feature for the picture nerds.
The design for the phone is really attractive. Having this on mind, the phone is not at all fragile like that of the Samsung galaxy S7 Edge, that I count as an added pro for the phone.
- No Water Resistance:
Well, almost every giant phone including Galaxy S7 Edge has got water resistance certification, that the Google Pixel XL lacks in it.
- No Wireless Charging:
As a matter of fact, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge carries the wireless charging feature, that again the Google’s new flagship lacks. When you have Google Pixel XL, you will definitely need to carry some cable along with you.
The Google’s new phone is expensive, despite of lacking all the important features. If the phone was offered in reasonable price, there would be huge fan following of these phones.
At the end we can conclude that Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge wins the comparison of Pros and Cons with Google Pixel XL.
