An iPhone 5S represents several (18?) Cray X-MP machines in your pocket.
The 7 is *far* more powerful.

I think the Cray started at around $5,000,000.

most movies are 1 gig or so, which means you can have up to around 250
movies if nothing else is on it. that ought to keep you entertained for
a really long train ride.

The microsd card is super convenient for transferring dozens of movies from
one phone to another in about half a minute, which is something I do all
the time.

Movie file size depends on a bunch of factors, as you all know, so I just
googled to see what *most* people consider a movie to be...

This Apple iTunes support document puts a movie at the following sizes:
https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201587
* 45-minute TV show is 200 MB
* 45-minute HDTV show is 600 MB
* 2-hour movie is 1.0-1.5 GB
* 2-hour HD movie is 3.0-4.5 GB

This article has a chart showing various movie file sizes:
http://filecatalyst.com/todays-media...whats-average/

The chart shows a DVD at 4GB and a 1080p movie at 8-15GB with a BlueRay
movie at 20-25GB and a 4K movie at 100+GB:
http://www.filecatalyst.com/wp-conte...aFileSizes.jpg

Roughly, this discussion puts a movie at about 1GB per hour:
http://ask.metafilter.com/177347/Wha...download-in-gb

This discussion puts an Amazon Prime movie at between 1 and 3 GB:

Savageduck,
Have you looked yet at the camera on the two phones?

Google touts their camera as the best ever in a smartphone, and Apple is
generally acknowledged as having great cameras for smartphones.

I use "real" cameras when I need them, so, I don't care either way but I'm
just curious if Google has met the bar that the iPhone 7 set for a high-end
smartphone camera.

That doesn't change the fact that the priceerformance ratio of the Pixel
line to the iPhone 7 line is exactly the same.

There are millions of Android users whose economic decisions span the
spectrum, but, in general, the priceerformance ratio of the Pixel is
dismal compared to the priceerformance ratio of the previous Nexus and
Moto line of Google phones.

Given that the priceerformance ratio of the Pixel line of phones is about
half of what it was for previous lines of Google phones, it will be
interesting to see if the Pixel sells to the Android customer.

I don't know how well or poorly the Pixel line of phones will sell, but I
don't think it will sell to the Android market, overall. I predict it won't
sell, and that Google *knows* this, and that Google has bigger plans.

I suspect Google is aiming at eroding the Apple franchise on overpriced
high-end equipment. This isn't to say Apple customers will flock to the
Pixel, as Apple customers are an amazingly loyal (and wasteful) crowd who
are the ones who make Apple one of the most profitable phone manufacturers
in the world. So Apple customers won't change over to the Pixel.

However, I don't think Android customers will settle for such a horrid
priceerformance ratio either; and I don't think Google will halve the
price to where it belongs to get to an acceptable priceerformance level
for Android customers.

So there is far more to this story than just what is obvious, since Google
marketing certainly knows everything I said, so they have a plan that takes
all that into account already.

We already have a thread comparing the Nexus phone to the iPhone where the
Nexus was essentially equivalent for the things that mattered to me where
the Nexus phone was about half the price.

So, for the same performance of the things that mattered, the
priceerformance ratio of the Apple equipment was half as good a ratio.

Now, for *you*, the priceerformance of the things that matter to *you* is
whatever equation *you* make it, so the ratio is different for everyone
when the phones are not *exactly* the same.

However, in the case of the Pixel phones versus the iPhone 7, they're
almost exactly the same price and feature list, so, in this case, the
priceerformance is basically exactly the same.

That means that they *both* have an utterly dismal priceerformance ratio.
I can't see the future, so I can only predict that the Android customers
won't pay for such a dismal priceerformance ratio.

So, I predict that the Pixel phones will fail miserably in the market
unless the price is dropped (the performance is fine).

If they drop the Pixel price in half (or thereabouts), the
priceerformance will be on par with many other Android phones - and that
would make the Pixel competitive in the Android market (in my humble
opinion).

Given that I don't think the Pixel will sell, and that I doubt Google will
drop the price in half (where it belongs), it will be interesting to see
what happens to the market, as a result of the phone not selling at that
price.

1. Network technology is the same.


nope.

the iphone 7 (and 6s for that matter) has more lte bands, which means
better coverage and wider carrier support.


What you say doesn't show up in the gsmarena specs, but, sometimes what
you
say is actually true (although you never back up what you say, and, 90% of
the time, your wrong - so I'm forced to ask you for clarification).

The Pixel is chock full of LTE bands so, I must ask you *which* bands
specifically you feel are *important* for a USA customer of either phone
that the iPhone 7 has that the Pixel does not have?

2. SIM cards are the same


so what?

nobody buys a phone based on the size of the sim card.


Fair enough.

3. Pixel XL screen size (5.5") is larger than the iPhone 7 (4.7")


as usual, you're intentionally comparing different products to skew
your 'comparison'.

the pixel xl is comparable to the iphone 7+ *not* the smaller iphone 7,
which compares with the regular pixel.


Read the title of the thread.
The goal was to compare both of the Pixel phones to the iPhone 7.

If *you* want to compare the iPhone 7+ to the phones, you're welcome to do
so but that doesn't make *this* comparison any different.

4. Pixel XL has far greater resolution and pixel density than the iPhone
7


it's a little bit higher than the iphone 7+, but not anything human
eyes can see so it doesn't actually matter in the real world.

it's just more pixels to move around (which increases memory demands).


Fair enough. I'm sure *both* displays are just fine.

5. Both have quad-core CPUs where the Pixel XL is faster with twice the
RAM


**** no. not even close.

the iphone 7/7+ processor, which by the way, is *not* a quad core but
rather a dual dual core, blows away the pixel. even last year's iphone
6s is faster.

http://bgr.com/2016/10/05/iphone-7-vs-pixel-benchmarks/
Geekbench 4 scores that just hit the web confirm as much ‹ Google¹s
Pixels score a 1580 on the single-core test and about 4100 on the
multi-core test, while Apple¹s latest iPhones score 3430 and about
5600.

geekbench rates the iphone 7 at *double* the performance on single core
and about 50% faster on multicore. double!! with half the cores!


This is interesting information.
You will note that there was a benchmark score on the gsmarena Apple
iPhone
7 page, but there was no corresponding score on the Pixel, so I was forced
to drop that comparison for lack of data (since I was only comparing the
two GSMarena spec pages).


http://www.redmondpie.com/google-pix...iphone-7-7-plu
s-benchmarks-comparison/
Early benchmarks from Geekbench 4 suggests that Apple¹s iPhone 7 and
iPhone 7 Plus easily beat the Pixel phones by Google on both single
and multi-core tests, with even older Apple hardware like the iPhone
SE and iPhone 6s outperforming the yet-to-be-released Google devices.

even *last* *year's* iphone 6s beats the pixel!!

as for memory, android has a higher memory overhead. it *needs* the
extra memory.

not only that, but the iphone 7+ has 3 gig (versus 4 gig in the pixel,
just ~30% more), mostly for the dual-lens camera which the pixel does
not have.


This is good information.

6. Cameras are discussed on another thread (let's call it even for now)


let's not, because the cameras are not even.

the pixel lacks optical image stabilization, has a slower lens and for
the iphone 7+, does not have a dual lens with optical zoom and portrait
mode.

they're both good cameras, but not 'even'.


Fair enough. I think both cameras are fine.

One side note is that Google MARKETING is *advertising* the camera as "the
best smartphone camera ever", so, we will probably see Apple MARKETING
respond accordingly (where Apple has the best marketing in the world!).

Google claims the Pixel has the 'best smartphone camera ever'
https://www.engadget.com/2016/10/04/...a-rating-ever/

Of course, the clickbait has followed suit:
5 reasons why the Pixel may have the best smartphone camera ever
http://www.greenbot.com/article/3127...mera-ever.html

Given this is a contentious argument that is out of my league (and given I
don't give a hoot about cameras since I own a real one), I will stay out
of
the fray by saying the cameras are essentially equivalent.

7. Neither has an expansion card slot (which is a bummer for both)
8. The Pixel XL has a real 3.5mm jack while the iPhone 7 lost that
feature


who cares. most people never use either one.

wireless is where it's at.


A lot of people care, and "I" care,


Yeah, but you are a stupid dinosaur who is actually stupid
enough to manually move files using bluetooth instead of
using the vastly better automatic wifi/cloud to do it instead.

so, that's why the jack is there. I think Apple will *eventually*
crumble due to their dictator-like autocratic decisions


More of your lies when the adapter is included for free.

which they can only MARKET as "courageous".


More of your lies. Apple has done no such thing.

Well, Josef Stalin was courageous. So was Sheikh Hasina. Apple is
more like Kim Jong-il in that they are a "dynasty" where Tim Cook
is just a figurehead where the real power is APPLE MARKETING.


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

I don't think the Apple dictatorship will crumble in the next five
years, but, with Google seemingly going directly for the jugular,


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

APPLE MARKETING can only keep up the charade
for so long. How long? Dunno. Ten years?


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

I don't think Apple will crumble in less than five years. So, mark my
words
on ten years and we'll just have to discuss that comment in the future.


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

Point is that APPLE MARKETING can only carry the company for so long.


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

At some point, someone else will COPY the MARKETING MOVES by Apple.


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

Google is clearly doing that here with the Pixel, even down to the price.


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

So I wouldn't put it past Google themselves to remove
the headphone jack, and pass the lost functionality on
to the consumer as a "courageous" marketing move.


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

9. WiFi on the Pixel XL is slightly better (with Wi-Fi Direct & DLNA)


wrong.

iphones have had wifi direct for *years*, the very feature you keep
insisting is not needed because you prefer the much slower bluetooth.


Huh? Who said anything about bluetooth in that spec?
Now you're just complaining with a total lack of merit.


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

The WiFi is essentially the same, with the Pixels being "slightly better"
in that
they have Wi-Fi Direct and DLNA whereas the iPhone 7 doesn't list that.


What matters is what it has, not what it lists.

It is a big deal?
Probably not.

But it *is* slightly better on the Pixels.

10. Bluetooth specs are the same essentially
11. GPS specs are the same essentially


first valid thing you've said so far.

12. NFC seems slightly better on the Pixel XL than on the iPhone 7


also true. nfc on android is a bit more flexible.


Actually, Rod Speed countered that the NFC on
Android, while more flexible, is perhaps less secure.


No perhaps about it.

So I'd call the NFC a wash, overall in that:
a. Apparently NFC on the iPhone 7 is less flexible but more secure
b. Apparently NFC on the Pixels is more flexible but perhaps less secure


No perhaps about it.

It's a wash, overall, but either one is slightly better than the
other depending on if you're scared or if you want flexibility.


Nothing to do with scared, everything to do with having enough
of a clue to not want to have to fart around reversing what some
malicious app has chosen to do with your less secure NFC.

13. USB connector is 3.0 on the Pixel XL (versus 2.0 on the iPhone 7)


that doesn't mean much of anything in the real world because flash
memory is the limiting factor.


Fair enough. What I *love* about USB 3.0 is the bi-directional connector,
which, as we all know, Apple pioneered.

14. Sensors are the same (FP, Accel, Gyro, Prox, Compass, Baro)
15. Talk time is more than double for the Pixel XL over the iPhone 7
16. Music play time on the Pixel XL is three times that of the iPhone 7


you're once again comparing a larger pixel xl with the smaller iphone 7.

i'm quite sure you're doing that intentionally to skew your supposed
'comparison'.

either compare the pixel with the iphone 7 or the pixel xl with the
iphone 7+.


The talk time is slightly more than double for the Pixel XL over the
iPhone
7, and slightly less than double for the Pixel over the iPhone 7, so, we
can "summarize" that as both Pixels are about double the talk time as the
iPhone 7. This is a big deal from a battery standpoint.

Similarly, the music-play time is slightly more than three times for the
Pixel XL and slightly less than three times for the Pixel, so, again, we
can "summarize" that as about three times more.

This is a big deal if battery life is important to the user.


Only if it means that the one with the lower time on
battery isnt still fine with just an overnight charge.

The huge battery life difference is not as meaningful
if battery life isn't important to the user.


And when a daily charge sees it never run out of battery.

Overall, on the listed performance features, it seems the Pixel XL is
arguably far better than the iPhone 7 by a wide margin in some specs,
and
by a slim margin in others, and they're essentially equal in a bunch of
ways.


it's an invalid comparison.

they're both good phones, which are priced exactly the same.

so much for android being cheaper.


I *knew* you'd say that last comment, and I'd *agree* with you.
Of course, I can find *plenty* of cheaper Android phones, but I don't look
at price first. I look at *performance* first, and, essentially, the Pixel
line of phones is apparently designed to complete on *performance* with
the
iPhone 7 line of phones.


It would be a ****ing sight more surprising if they didn’t.

After looking at these specs, and then, at the end, looking up the price,
it seems that these two lines of phones are direct 1:1 competitors on
priceerformance.


Not on security of your personal data they arent.

This means, (to me), Apple will eventually crumble.


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

Why I say such a remarkable thing is that up until now,
Apple has been able to maintain artificially high prices


In fact north american phone users mostly don’t even see
the high prices because of the megascam they have actually
been stupid enough to get sucked into with the stupid price
they pay for their cellphone service which includes a phone.

based purely on hugely successful MARKETING campaigns.


Its actually due to that megascam they have got sucked into.

Up until now, almost nobody could claim the hardware margins that Apple
claims, and, as you yourself said, Google sold many of its phones at a
*loss*.


You don’t know that last.

Now that Google MARKETING has apparently decided to copy Apple
MARKETING (almost completely with respect to priceerformance ratios),


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

what happens *next* is a matter of conjecture


Nope.

- but - I feel Apple must fail "if" Google wins.


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

Google wont win, you watch. And doesn’t need to either given that
google is about a hell of a lot more than just phones and phablets.

And there can never be a winner in that particular market anyway.

I don't see into the future,


Or even manage a viable troll.

so I can see one of two scenarios:


Its never that black and white, troll boy.

a. Google wins big with these phones, or,


Not a chance given that as you say there is **** all
in it performance wise and nothing in it price wise.

Even tho iphones are much better for the security of your
personal data, most don’t even realise that, so it will have
very little effect on how they do in the market because
there arent enough who know that to matter market wise.

b. Nobody buys them.


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

That’s never going to happen given that as you say, there
is **** all in it performance wise and nothing in it price
wise and so many hate apple for a variety of reasons.

It remains to be seen if google will actually manage to get
many who have previously chosen to have high end Samsungs
instead of an Apple device will now change to Google.

If nobody buys them,


That's never going to happen, you pathetic excuse for a troll.

nothing changes for Apple, since Apple isn't
in the market for low priceerformance ratios.


However, if these Pixel phones sell, then that means
that Apple no longer can maintain the sole spot in
the lousy priceerformance ratios (for the consumer).


It never has. Samsung has always been in that particular market segment too.

I personally would *never* buy a Pixel simply because the
priceerformance
sucks as bad as it does for an iPhone 7 (that isn't free anyway).


Bet that will see the google suits pouring from their windows like lemmings
for sure.

But, if *other* people buy the Pixel line of phones,


Corse some will, just like some did with the Nexus phones and phablets.

then what happens is that Apples market share in the lousy
priceerformance
category is eroded, and, since there are too many other competitors out
there
who would love to be in that niche, Apple will (I predict) eventually
crumble.


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

However, I don't actually think many Android people will be dumb enough
to pay that much for the performance of the Google Pixel phones.


Plenty have with the Samsung high end phones and phablets.

Lord knows there are plenty of Apple aficionados who pay
that much for so little of a priceerformance ratio; but the
question at hand is whether Android users will be that dumb.


Nope, its been known for years now.

Personally, I don't think so.


More fool you. Too stupid to even notice that its been happening for years
now.

That means Apple is safe for now.


However, if there are a lot of dumb Android
users out there, then Apple is doomed.


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

**** all users do anything other than stick with the latest incarnation
of the phone or phablet they have been using for years now.

It all depends on who is willing to pay for a lousy
priceerformance ratio on a very good phone.


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

Looking up the price for a 32GB version of each:
Pixel XL = $769
iPhone 7 = $650


you're so disingenuous that you even artificially inflated the iphone
price by a buck.


Thanks for catching that. I was cutting and pasting but the Apple site
wouldn't cut and paste so I typed it.

You're correct that I was off by a buck for the 32GB version:
Pixel XL $770
iPhone 7 $650

Plus tax.

here's the price comparison:

iphone 7+ 32 gig: $769
pixel xl 32 gig: $769
128 gig version, add $100

pixel 32 gig: $649
iphone 7 32 gig: $649
128 gig version, add $100

they're *exactly* the same.


This is the most obvious point, which is that the Google Pixel
line of phones is *designed* to compete directly, 1:1, on
Price:Performance, to the Apple iPhone 7 line of phones.


If this gamble works,


It isnt a gamble, clearly billions buy apple phones and tablets.

it will spell the beginning of the end for the Apple dictatorship;


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

if this gamble fails, nothing will change.


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

So everything depends (IMHO) on whether Android users
are dumb enough to pay that much for a good phone.


Those who have been buying the high end Samsungs clearly do.

also note that the iphone offers 256 gig for an additional $100 over
the 128 gig, while the pixel does not offer 256 gig at all, no matter
how much you want to pay.

Next I'll compare the Pixel to the iPhone 7 by specs.


that's what you should have done in the first place.


Your idea of comparing the iPhone 7 to the Pixel and the iPhone 7+ to the
Pixel XL makes a lot of sense; but I had not known ahead of time that they
would be essentially mirror equivalents in so many specs and in the price.


But you should have had enough to a clue to bin your pathetic excuse
for a troll when you eventually managed to work that out because you
always have been a slow learner/never had a ****ing clue.

Remember, I always look at price *last*


More fool you.

and I have to take the assemblage of specs as a whole, so,
were I to start this thread over, I would compare, as you did:

iPhone 7 to Pixel
iPhone 7+ to Pixel XL


A Jap would at least have the decency to disembowel itself...

BTW, I think this Google gamble


It isnt a gamble.

will fail in that Android users aren't so dumb
as to pay that much for a good phone


How odd that so many have with the Samsung high end phones and phablets.

but if this gamble wins, then Apple is doomed since this
lousy Price:Performance point is *their* fundamental market,


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

and if Google can play in Apple's pond, so can everyone else.


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

Samsung has always done that, you pathetic excuse for a pig ignorant troll.

Because you are a dinosaur that is too stupid to use cards, let alone the

So, since I'm ignorant of NFC, I only read the spec as something
like "the pixel can do everything with NFC while the iPhone 7
can only do some things with NFC".


Yes, apps on iOS devices can't use NFC, only iOS can do that.

I guess what you're saying is that this is true, but because
of the Apple limitations, then NFC "security" is better.


Yes, no malicious app can use the NFC on an iOS device.

If that's the case, neither is better;


That is just plain wrong if you care about security.

they're just different where Apple (as usual) is more
restrictive and Google (as usual) is more open.


Even sillier and an even more pathetic excuse for a troll than you usually
manage.

Looking up the price for a 32GB version of each:
Pixel = $650
iPhone 7 = $650


That's a bit low end IMO.


I don't understand that comment since I googled for the price
and it seems that the Google Pixel price is exactly the same as
the Apple iPhone 7 price, which, I'm sure, is no coincidence.


I meant that 32GB versions of phones is very low end now.

Did I get the prices wrong?


Nope.

What are the correct prices for a 32GB version of each phone?


The problem wasn’t with the price, its which model you
priced, the lowest GB version.
