Google Pixel vs Samsung Galaxy S7 vs HTC 10: three-way specs comparison

Google Pixel vs Samsung Galaxy S7 vs HTC 10: three-way specs comparison
Packing a Snapdragon 821, 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. 

Indeed, we've been pretty hyped up about the small-sized Pixel - after all, what's not to like about an easily-pocketable powerhouse? However, is the announcement of the Pixel spelling bad times for the rest of fairly small flagship devices out there, like the excellent Galaxy S7 and the not-too-shabby but largely forgotten HTC 10?

Well, we are not sure how things will unravel for the Google Pixel, but what we can do is compare this trio in terms of specs. Yes, it's specs comparison time!
