9

After months of speculation and a torrent of leaks, two of the biggest flagship smartphones of 2017 are now official at long last - the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are here to reclaim their rightful spot at the very top of the Android world. But they face fierce competition this year, not only from Apple and iOS, but from Samsung, LG, and other Android phone makers. We've already compared the new Pixels to the major Android phones on the market in terms of specs, but what about the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus?

With top-notch hardware on board, combined with latest and greatest from Android, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL represent Google's continued drive to develop successful commercial smartphone that's to rival the iPhones and the Galaxies of the world. The first Pixels were Google's way of feeling the waters, and although they lacked certain features that the competition had already pinned down, this new generation of flagship devices from Google strives hard to amend this.

So, let's see how the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL measure up to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in terms of specs:
