Poll: time for a showdown – Google Pixel or Apple iPhone 7?

I never thought a decision like this would be so hard, honestly I went with the Pixel due to its widgets and customization.

i voted for the pixel even thou i dont really like it " would take an s7 edge or htc 10 over it " but it is the only option that is running android and for me ios is a no go especially with that 3 years old design and an outdated LCD display

I'm already waiting on my Pixel XL to be shipped. My brother waited 2 weeks for his iPhone 7 and returned it. He waited about 3 weeks for an iPlus and now he's thinking about returning it and getting the XL too.

I think most people who come to this site choose Android over iOS so the Pixel has the advantage.

I don't think so, it's true that the pixel is better than the iPhone 7 in more ways than the iPhone 7 being better than the pixel.

I personally don't think so. It's the best android phone I believe but between the iPhone 7 And the pixel, it's all about software preference.

software preference yes. Pixel camera is superior to iPhone 7 easy. Pixel XL camera is often superior to iPhone 7+ one as well but its closer. otherwise they are pretty similar.

The iPhone has the Pixel beat with the processor speed and OS efficiency, as it is less taxing on the hardware. I think that the Pixel has the iPhone beat in regards to photo quality & overall quality of the OS though. This might be up for debate as people have their preference of GUI, but the last couple years now, research groups have found that Android has fewer bugs than iOS. And the fact that up till now those tests were done on third party hardware would mean that there's more opportunity for bugs so it is reasonable to suggest that the Pixel will suffer from even fewer issues now that it's a 100% first party effort. ... When it comes down to it, they're both stellar devices and the only thing that matters is your preference of GUI.

This poll is stupid. If you like iOS you'll get an iPhone, there's no other choice. If you like Android you have many choices. Pixel is just one of them. It's a good phone but IMO it's not worth the very high price. I'd rather wait for next year's bezel-less flagships and have MUCH better phone.

I'm mum on this one. I bought my 7 Plus before the Pixel came out, but I'm not sure I'd trade it for a Pixel. I don't have any experience with the Pixel, but I was pleasantly surprised by the 7 Plus.

I would say that most of the people will vote Pixel because they hate Apple. But this Pixel is on of a hell ugly bitch lol

While I don't think it's a helluva ugly bi**c, it's not a sexy phone either. I totally agree however, with people voting for it out of Apple hatred. This sites full of Apple haters, and their voice will be heard through this poll.

U should Add an option for "None" or another Phone to be fair

I can understand the option for none, but if it's between two phones why on gods earth would they add option for third phone?

Pointless, Android users will always outnumber Apple users here. That's all this will boil down to in the end, both are overpriced but the only option for me is the Android device.

Seeing pics of the stunning design of mi mix and then having to look at these two make me feel sad. It's like we've traveled back in time and asking nexus one or iphone 3g?

being a nexus user for the past 4 years, but if i had to take one between these two now, i would take the iP 7+. But since there are other options, i'm gonna wait till next year...see what comes.

Why not do a Poll for all current flagships?

All thought I will probably be getting the 7, I voted for Pixel, because it is a phone made right (except for the design, which looks bad - really bad).
