I missed this from earlier in the week. Peak iPhone? Nope. Peak Android. Wil Gomez:
With Google’s Pixel it’s obvious that we’ve reached Peak Android. Is this really the best you’ve got, Google? Is this your flagship device? Compared to iPhone 7 Plus, the Pixel XL is anemic at best, and missing some core features that Apple’s customers get in the latest iPhone; you know, the one critics said was DOA, and no reason to upgrade.
What makes Google’s Pixel less than expected?
Where’s the telephoto lens? iPhone 7 Plus has one. Rather, two lenses. One for wide angle, one telephoto. Drop your iPhone in a mud puddle and all you need to do is clean it off. Google Pixel is not as weather and water resistance. What about simple things like stereo speakers? Samsung’s Galaxy line often has a slot for extra storage SD cards. Not Pixel. Even storage is half the amount you can get on an iPhone. There’s more RAM but iPhone 7s are killing Android devices in performance benchmarks. Again.
Peak Android, indeed. And Verizon only? What’s with that?
