Though many brands have introduced a range of cellphones in their upper-tier segment, Apple’s latest iPhone7 and iPhone 7 Plus are reigning over the cell phone market. Staying true to all the hype and expectations, iPhone 7 has done far better than what the competitors anticipated. Brands like LG, HTC, and Sony, are doing well in the mid-range cellphone category.
However, they are still on a slippery threshold when it comes to the market for premium-range phones. A broad overview of the sales figure shows that Samsung is the only other brand to do well in the high-priced latest mobile phones category, apart from Apple.
For all high-end gadget lovers, Apple iPhone 7 has become a coveted device. Another cellphone that is grabbing eyeballs in this price range these days is Google Pixel.
Therefore, the conundrum, which one to go for; iPhone7 or Google Pixel?
Priced in the range of INR 60,000, Google Pixel compels the competitive cellphone market and its clients to raise questions on its worth.
Android smartphones have always taken pride in their performance-driven hardware. However, this is not the case with Google Pixel; rather, it focuses on the ultimate Android experience facilitated by Google Assistant.
At a starting price of INR 57,000, Google Pixel has similar specifications to that of One Plus 3 and Huawei Honor 8 smartphone, that are about half its price, and it hardly bears any special feature that justifies its cost.
Here are some features that could be the reason why the phone is priced so high.
Google Assistant: Pixel incorporates the latest Android version Nougat and has an inbuilt Google Assistant. Just like Siri, the user can command Google to conduct day-to-day activities. But, there is no surety that Google will keep this feature exclusive for Pixel phones only. It is already downloadable on its Allo chat app.
Unlimited backup for Google Pics: If you are using Google photos, you get the liberty to store unlimited photos and videos in original quality.
Pixel Launcher: Similar to other launchers, the Pixel launcher is also a superficial feature. It allows you to access all your personalized information from Google easily.
24/7 chat support: You can contact customer care via chat, in case of any trouble with your latest mobile phone.
Pixel does have some unique features to flaunt, but most smartphone aficionados in India still have their eyes set upon the latest Apple creations: iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Take a look at why this gadget is more sought after than any other phone of this price range:
– LED-backlit IPS LCD, Capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors
– It sports IP 67 Water-resistant
– Faster Processor
– 12MP f/1.8 Primary camera with OIS
– iPhone 7 clicks luminous and vibrant images under low light
With the introduction of new camera systems and the longest battery life ever seen on an iPhone, the iPhone7 is miles ahead of Google Pixel. It is also scratch, dust, and water resistant and integrates immersive stereo speakers for surround sound quality. Although, Google Pixel doesn’t stammer while processing, but it doesn’t have iPhone7’s fast loading speed either.
So here’s the verdict: Google Pixel may interest some of the buyers, but it’s not worth the price. On the other hand, iPhone 7 continues to be a craze among buyers. You can compare the specifications and features of these latest mobile phones online, before making the final decision.
