Google Pixel vs Google Pixel XL
The Google Pixel is clearly the lower-end version of the two new Pixel phones with a 5-inch full HD display compared to the 5.5-inch 2K display on the Google Pixel XL. That being said, both feature an overly chamfered metal body thanks to their HTC manufacturers but go for Google or "G" branding. At 8.6mm thin, they aren't the thinnest phones around but they do pack in the more current features like a rear fingerprint sensor, 4GB of RAM and a 128GB microSD slot. The smaller Pixel phone obviously packs a smaller 2770 mAh battery compared to the 3450 mAh packing Pixel XL but both support fast charging for 7 hours of usage in just 15 minutes of charge.
Google Pixel vs Google Pixel XL vs Huawei Nexus 6P
While the Nexus 6P offers a similar 1/2.3" camera sensor, the Pixel phones use phase detection autofocus and offer Electronic Image Stabilization. Only the Pixel XL offers the same 2K display though but both Pixel phones offer 4GB of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor over the Snapdragon 810 and 3GB of RAM on the Nexus 6P. The Nexus 6P retains a price advantage over both Pixel phones though as it can be had for as low as RM2087 in gold while the Pixel phones we expect to go up to about RM3K if or when they arrive in Malaysia.
Google Pixel vs Google Pixel XL vs ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe
Compared to the ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe on the other hand, the Pixel phones share the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and Electronic Image Stabilization for video recording but the ZenFone 3 Deluxe offers a version with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of storage over the 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage on the Pixel phones. At 7.5mm, the ZenFone 3 Deluxe is also clearly thinner than the Pixel phones.
The Pixel phones also offer Android 7.1 right out of the box with enhanced Google Assistant usage along with 12MP rear cameras that lay flush compared to the 23MP rear camera hump on the ZenFone 3 Deluxe. We still expect the Pixel phones to outprice the ZenFone 3 Deluxe but only time will tell. Were we missing a comparison you wanted to see?
