Dont get me wrong, I loved my Pixel XL for its battery life and speed, but Google could of done a much better job making an "iPhone Competitor" it just looks to much like an iPhone, especially with the bezels. Just got my S8+ and I'm happy with my decision to switch.

" the Pixel is still the camera to beat,"
That sums up the camera comparison between pixel and s8.
Though s8 is great but it could not outperform pixel as many would have thought.
Goigle really deserves credit for that.

This generally iPhoneArena and very biased again st Samsung. S8 has a better camera than Pixel. Not much, but is is better overall.

Tell me, what is it that makes the iPhone and Pixel so similar?

Off center charging port? looks pretty centered to me, considering the home button is right in the middle of it.

stock android on a traditional aspect ration over a UI at a new aspect ratio that could likely use a bit more optimization?

Not really surprising.

give samsung & android a few updates and see where things lay.

Nexus devices were always smoother than other android mobiles including samsung. So it is not a surprise that pixel is smoother than s8.
Even future pixel would be more smoother than other galaxy devices.

Pixel has best camera still, runs stock android, only an idiot will pick S8 over a Pixel. Though I do believe Pixel has hardware issues, but even with that the phone should be leaps and bounds ahead of S8, I simply don't know how people could prefer looks over functionality! Whatever.

If you are fan of stock android, obviously you will prefer pixel over s8. Pixel is great.
But it does not mean s8 is inferior.

"only an idiot will pick S8 over a Pixel"
Well not everyone​ like stock and there is not enough deference in the cameras to matter.
OMG those bezels on the Pixel are awful, but I am not going to call you a idiot for liking the Pixel.
Would I buy it , hell no, to me it's ugly as s**t, but we all like what we like so put the phone down all you want but, why call others idiots for what they like.

Better camera than S8?

I don't think so. iPhoneArena is the most biased site on the Internet.

HDR+ too intelligent, too ahead of its time. Pixel untouchable in camera department

You mean too much lens flare, oversharpening and wrong exposures?

Yep. There is no match if you want stability and timely updates. iPhone is where it's at. If you want feature rich devices look elsewhere. Would never touch a pure Android phone myself.

You can see the S8's USB Type-C port is "misaligned" but not how the Pixel's DISPLAY is off-centered?

The pixel got no chance to be better than the s8 in low light or worst situations....in strong light situation or so, the pixel and s8 can be tough and tie...there's nothing that makes the pixel better or should I say like they said "THE BEST"...
The s8 is more pleasing tough..
