Written By: Cassandra Bondie

Looking for an upgraded smartphone in 2018? Two recent releases may exceed your expectations. In this article, we're going to compare cell phones - the Google Pixel 2 and the iPhone X.

While both phones have made waves, they feature stark differences in categories like general specifications, operating systems, cameras, display, and interesting features. Perhaps the biggest rivalry between the phones involves Google Assistant and Siri - a competition we'll discuss later.

General Specifications

Google Pixel 2: The newest Google release comes in black, white, and blue. Like most smartphones, it features a touchscreen. The battery isn't removable. You'll enjoy four gigabytes of RAM and sixty-four gigabytes of internal storage. The Pixel is designed for e-SIM cards and nano-SIM cards.

iPhone X: The iPhone X comes in gray and silver. It can hold a minimum of sixty-four gigabytes of internal storage.

Android vs. iOS

Google Pixel 2: Unsurprisingly, the Pixel uses Android 8.0. For those who prefer Android, the Pixel is an obvious choice. It comes with all of the Android features you already know and love, making it easier to customize and use your new smartphone.

iPhone X: Like every iPhone before it, the iPhone X features iOS. If you've used iPhones for the past decade, you'll be more familiar with the layout and functionality of the iPhone X. You'll also appreciate the sleek design and style.


Google Pixel 2: The Pixel has a sleek, unibody, aluminum construction that hides antenna lines. A built-in fingerprint scanner is located on the back of the phone. There are both front and rear-facing cameras. You'll find a single charging port on the bottom, with no available headphone jack.

iPhone X: The iPhone X is sleek, simple, and screen-oriented. It features both front and rear-facing cameras but has no standard headphone jack.


Google Pixel 2: Uniquely, the Google Pixel has an Always-On Display that shows constant time, notifications, and important information - including upcoming events on your calendar. The screen size is five inches and resolution is 1080 x 1920 pixels.

iPhone X: The iPhone X uses an HD display and OLED technology. The screen size is just under six inches and the resolution is 2436 x 1125 pixels. It has support for multi-language display.

Cool Features

Google Pixel 2: While both phones have first-of-its-kind features, Google made a statement with its newest smartphone. The Pixel is able to listen for music at all times, identifying songs and artists on your screen. Squeeze the sides of your phone to access Google Assistant wordlessly. The Google Lens makes it possible to point your camera at numbers, landmarks, or text to access additional information. There's a slew of fun features on the Pixel, each one more impressive than the last.

iPhone X: The most talked about feature of the iPhone X is its facial-recognition software. If you look at your lock screen, a list of your notifications will appear. When your phone recognizes you, the information provided will expand. You can also log into websites, bank accounts, and your smartphone itself using facial recognition software.

Virtual Assistant

Google Pixel 2: All experts agree that no phone is more deeply integrated with its assistant than the Google Pixel. Your Google Assistant will tailor answers based on your search history and personal information, making endless accessibility an ask away.

iPhone X: When using the iPhone X, you'll need to press and hold the sleep/wake button to access Siri. There are still ongoing issues with the ability of Siri to understand your intention, but the assistant is still impressive.
