New Google video shows you how to switch from an iPhone to a Pixel
In case you want to switch from an iPhone to a Google Pixel or Pixel XL, and you want to make the transition as swift as possible, Google now has a video that shows exactly how you can do that. Part of a series dubbed #Pixel Tips, the video that we're talking about is rightfully titled "Switching from iPhone", and explains just how easy it is to ditch your Apple handset in favor of a Pixel or Pixel XL.

As you can see in the video (embedded below), in order to make the switch and start moving your content from an iPhone to a Pixel, you first need to turn off iMessage and FaceTime, while making sure that battery life on both the iPhone and the Pixel is at 50% or higher. After that, you have to connect to a Wi-Fi network, connect your iPhone to the Pixel using a Quick Switch Adapter, and you're good to go. As a reminder, the Quick Switch Adapter is offered for free, and is included in all Pixel and Pixel XL retail boxes.

Another #Pixel Tips video that Google released today involves only Pixel phones, basically being a Getting Started guide. This video is also embedded below.

In case you're currently using an iPhone, let us know if you're tempted to ditch it for a Pixel or Pixel XL.

Better make video how to switch from Samsung flagship to Pixel. Right? All the researches and polls, show that ppl even after Note7 ban, go for S7 or S7Edge, because don't know how better and and more beautiful Pixel is. That must be changed.

The Pixel is superior to any iPhone. The Pixels camera is really great. I can't wait to see Daydream VR on the Pixels. How is VR on your iPhone? Oh, wait VR would be crap on any iPhone, especially since Apple still puts low resolution displays on their iPhones. The iPhone 7 with its HD display would only have a resolution of 667x750 per eye. That would look like total crap, and with its 4.7" size would mean it would have a low FOV (field of view). I guess that is why Apple hasn't mentioned anything yet about VR for their devices. But we know the real truth why Apple hasn't increased their resolution. It's because Apple likes to boast and brag to everyone on how fast their iPhones are. Those graphics benchmarks are really funny especially when they compare a device with a QHD display that is pushing 4 times the number of pixels in comparison to the iPhone 7. Still a QHD display is still pushing 2 times the number of pixels compared to the iPhone 7 plus. Apple and their lies, and greed is catching up with them.

To each their own. I beg to differ. Then again, I dont claim something is the "best" and assume the entire populations interests
