Google vs. Apple: The Great Smartphone Debate

 

In this world, there are great oppositions: East Coast vs. West Coast. The Giants vs. the Jets. Chocolate vs. Vanilla.

 

And now we have Google Pixel vs. Apple iPhone. One comes from the largest, most commonly used search engine on the planet, and the other created the very first smartphone, a device that is used by 2.3 billion people around the globe.

 

Let’s examine the competition between the world’s largest technology giants.

 

Apple iPhone 7

 

The iPhone has been gracing this planet with its presence for almost a full decade, owning the smartphone world with over 1 billion sold throughout the entire globe. Apple recently released the iPhone 7, the latest and greatest of the series, with updated features like water resistance, headphone buds that no longer require an input jack, new color finishes, and an advanced home button that is more durable, responsive and pressure sensitive.

 

 

Google Pixel

 

The Pixel is Google’s first phone, with features similar to the iPhone, although it has no physical buttons on the front face of the device. It’s an ultra-fast smartphone that uses Android’s most updated operating system, Nougat. The display is much crisper than the iPhone with a 1440p resolution, allows for unlimited storage, and has a battery that lasts all day.

Apple vs. Google

 

If we’re being honest, the real comparison here isn’t between the phones themselves but rather the manufacturers. We all know that both the iPhone 7 and Google Pixel are outstanding devices that will satisfy all of your smartphone needs.

 

It’s been said that Apple isn’t as innovative in the technology space as it used to be, while Google continues to inspire. A recent article from CNBC claimed that Apple is only adapting their iPhone model rather than shocking us with any new technology. However, that may stem from the fact that they did create the first revolutionary smartphone. There is also the fact that Apple has a long line of iPad products including the Mini and the Air as well as their world famous Macbooks.

 

The Pixel is Google’s first foray into physical devices, as they’ve only been responsible for software and internet tech so far. The Android operating system is good but has always come in second to the Apple iOS. However, Google as a search engine far outweighs its competition, proving that their innovation team knows how to keep up.

 

What to Buy

 

For most users, this purchase will come down to comfort and aesthetic.

 

Many Apple users continue to purchase Apple products because of the eye-pleasing layouts and displays, as well as the familiarity in each updated device. While Google is a trusted company among the tech space, it can be hard for some to make the leap from something they know and understand, even if it’s lacking in innovation, to something new and fresh, even if it’s faster and better.

 

Right now, Google is on track to sell three million Pixel devices by the end of the year.

Heading into the holiday season, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will most certainly be on most people's wish list. The latest model is doing well in regards to sales and is more popular than most people thought it would be. 

 

Though identical to the iPhone 6s in design, its performance has proven to be top notch and has seen much improvement. This is a fast device that can definitely perform and features an improved camera and longer-lasting battery life. At each and every Apple launch they run the gamut of features and benefits for customers. With that said, they iPhone 7 Plus has a little secret under the hood that customers might know about.

 

 The Secret Is Revealed

 

So what is this secret? We won't keep you in suspense. The iPhone 7 Plus features 3 GB of RAM. The iPhone 7, 6s, and 6s plus all feature 2 GB. This increase in performance hardware is most likely used to handle the requirements of the new telescoping camera. So does more RAM mean faster performance? Not necessarily.

 

Side by Side

Here 9-5 Mac does a side by side comparison of the two models to see if the 3GB really adds to speedier performance. 

 

 

The Conclusion

 

Even though the iPhone 7 Plus does feature an extra GB of RAM, the general consensus is that this RAM has been applied strictly to the camera and should not really increase operating performance. With that said, the iPhone 7 Plus may see better results for multitasking while using the camera.

With the launch of the iPhone 7 in our rearview mirror, the entire industry is looking forward to the next Apple release, the iPhone 8. The internet is flooding with rumors and everywhere we turn a new one is popping up. Is it way too soon to tell what the smartphone will feature? Probably, but it's fun to speculate. 


iPhone 8


Forget Aluminum and Glass, What About Ceramic?


The possibility of this happening, despite the rumors, is really slim. Based on patents obtained by Apple this is one of the more "out-of-the-box" rumors, but to actually do this is really complicated. 


The real challenge here is it requires a kiln. Yes, an actual kiln. In order to mass-produce iPhones in the production capacity Apple does you would need a kiln the size of two football field. Additionally, it would require Apple to significantly increase the amount of CNC machines they use. So yeah...this is really far-fetched. 


Under the Hood


This is a given. Apple will have to truly step it up with the next launch in regards to the technology and processsing. Let's just hope the phones don't become notorious for catching fire as a result. 


Speed is king and we are expecting a much faster phone capable of handling advanced processing. It is also rumored that Apple is going to roll-out the long talked about OLED, which will make for a crisper display. 


AI Upgrade


Apple is most certainly not leading the race for top AI assitant. With Google and Amazon both habitiating this space,  Apple needs to step it up and it is rumored that they may be renovating our pal SIRI. Will Apple be able to come from behind and achieve victory from the clutches of defeat? We certainly hope so. 


Siri

 

We Still Believe


Apple was founded on hard work and innovation and even though nothing groundbreaking has been released with the iPhone 7, we believe the iPhone 8 will be a very special release and bring about a new direction for the company. Now we wait.
