As it could not be otherwise, in Cydiaplus we will face the best of each house: the Google Pixel 2 against the Apple iPhone 8 . Which will be executed? Google has put a lot of effort into this new device, wants to be a triumph and battle face to face with the iPhone. The first Pixel was about to get it, will you get the Pixel 2 breast?

Frames, frames. Both devices are the traditional flags , despite the redesign of some flagship this year, both the iPhone 8 and Pixel 2 have screens with prominent frames for what we would like.


Although the Pixel 2 has one of the best processors that exist today, it lacks something. All the power of the processors of both devices is surpassed by the incorporation in the Aion Bionic chip of Apple of a neuronal motor , that will be in charge to learn how to execute the tasks to optimize the use of the iPhone 8. An advance of the technology which gives a boost to the iPhone in our balance. 


The Pixel 2 does not need a dual camera to convert its camera to the winner , obtaining a score never given in DxOMark: a 98 compared to the 92 of the iPhone 8. The great quality of this camera is the integration of machine learning, making the device capable take pictures in portrait mode.

However, here the iPhone 8 stays tremendously behind. It does not have double camera, nor does it match it. Despite having a very good camera, says goodbye to features like portrait mode , which can make the user choose one or the other device.

Wireless charge

The new Google Pixel 2 loses in this aspect as it does not incorporate this acclaimed feature . Apple has had to give in its design to the crystal to be able to enter it in the new iPhone 8, but at last we can charge our iPhone without cables. Google still has to think about it.


These Pixels come served from home, with a battery of 2,700 mAh: the Pixel can give you life for a while. It also incorporates fast charging, a feature that many users want on their devices. In this case both terminals have little to envy , the iPhone with a lower capacity guarantees the duration of a day - although it is true, some users report that it does not give for 24 hours - and fast charging, if you purchase separately. 

Artificial intelligence

Suddenly, without realizing it Google Assistant has made a leap forward and has won Siri in functions, is now able to do many more things: it integrates a very complete ecosystem that can make the day to day easier. However, it does not have the grace of Siri or its irony: Google has preferred to add features.


But while Google Assistant has its own ecosystem, the iPhone is the most complete one ever created by a company. All devices are integrated with each other, sharing functionality and tasks. You can start the task in one and finish it in another. This is an addition that makes Apple products even better. 


We did not think a section like this was necessary in 2017 ... But Google has forced us, the new Pixel 2 will not reach Spain . Leaving us again out of your kindness and #madebygoogle. This fact does not stop surprising us, since the companies no longer think this type of movements. Unless Google knows that it is not yet able to eat ground Apple and its iPhone.
