Google's Pixel XL pays a visit to Geekbench, let's compare it to the iPhone 7
A few Pixel XLs have now hit Geekbench, and we can see how it scores on the website. In fact, we can compare its score to the many iPhone 7 Plus units that have been tested with the same app.
Sorry to say, but the results don't look amazing. The Google Pixel XL scores around 1600 points on the single-core test and 4000 on the multi-core one. The iPhone 7 Plus seems to consistently decimate it with 3400 points on the single-core and 5500 on the multi-core test. Point to the A10 Fusion team.
Of course, real-life performance doesn't always reflect benchmark scores. We'll still have to wait and see how the Pixel XL feels and performs once we get our mitts on one.
