As time goes by, the technology in phones keeps on getting more impressive. Last year, Google’s new phone, the Pixel, blew consumers away. In the coming days, the Pixel 2 is set to be released. As excitement grows, many wonder how it will compare to the similar huge launch of the year- the iPhone 8.

The iPhone 8 comes in Space Gray, Silver, and Gold.

Both phones are around 700 dollars. This may seem steep to students, but some features could be worth the cost.

The iPhone 8 comes in a 256 GB version, the Pixel 2 has 128 GB as the largest option. This is important as neither allows microSD cards, but both companies offer an online storage service.

The Pixel 2 comes in Kinda Blue, Clearly White, and Just Black.

Display wise, the Pixel 2 will appear sharper and have a larger screen. And though the Pixel 2’s rear camera may be better resolution, the iPhone 8’s camera is sure to impress as well.

The Pixel 2 and iPhone 8 will both also not have a headphone jack. Neither has removable batteries, but the iPhone 8 will be the first iPhone to support wireless charging.

The iPhone 8 may not have a separate headphone jack, but it supports wireless charging.

Both have fingerprint scanners and claim to be water resistant, a standard that means they can withstand being submerged in 1 meter of static water for up to 30 mins.

The biggest difference, of course, will be in the interface. Some prefer iOS’ simplicity, or Android’s flexibility. In the end, both have a lot to offer to students looking for an upgrade.

The iPhone 8 was released Sept. 22, 2017.

The Pixel 2 was released Oct. 19, 2017.
