Google Pixel XL vs Samsung Galaxy Note 7 vs LG V20: specs comparison


Packing a Snapdragon 821 chipset, 4GB of RAM, 32 or 128 gigs of native storage, and finally, a camera that is allegedly among the best ones in the class, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL are here to wage war on the very best the Android market has to offer.

However, is this enough to shake up the high branches of the smartphone market and steal away some potential buyers from Samsung and LG, which have some pretty strong offerings in that niche, namely the Galaxy Note 7 and the LG V20

Well, this remains to be seen. Until then, we can only entertain ourselves with specs comparisons that clearly show us how the Pixel XL stacks up against the aforementioned super-sized champs. Guess what, that's exactly what we're about to do right now!
