Here are the important things that you need to know when you compare Apple iPhone X and Google Pixel 2 XL.
It is important that you get to know about the dimensions of each smartphone because this can greatly have an impact on your convenience in handling it. The dimensions of the smartphone should be accurate enough so that you do not have to risk it being accidentally dropped nor you need to suffer because of how small it could be. This year’s trend is an average-sized handset that gives you the comfort and convenience of handling it without straining your finger too much in order to reach a specific button or area in the screen.
The iPhone X has a 5.65 in x 2.79 in x 0.30 in dimensions while the Pixel 2 XL, on the other hand, has the dimensions of 6.22 in x 3.02 in x 0.31 in. With this, you will be able to somehow estimate on the how your day goes with these smartphones in your hand.
Of course, you will never have a smartphone that could become a burden to you, right? You need one that gives you the comfort and convenience that you need. One of the factors that you need to consider is the weight. This will determine whether it would be strenuous for a smartphone to be used all day or would it be awesome to hold for long.

It would really be awesome if they provide a variety of colours for you to choose from, but it would also be great if they offer you spectacular choices regardless of being limited to one or two.
iPhone X has amazing choices of Silver and Space Gray, while the Pixel 2 XL has cool choices of Just Black and the Black & White. As you can see, each smartphone has two choices but with these, you just can’t help but wonder how it would look like on your hands when you use it.
Just like any other specs and features of each smartphone released by different companies, it is important that you know the materials that comprise both iPhone X and Pixel 2 XL. This would help you determine which one would be a comfortable device.
Apparently, iPhone X is made of stainless and glass while the Pixel 2 XL stays with the same aluminum that has been used for the previous Pixel devices as well. The stainless glass material that has been used in the iPhone X is there because it supports the wireless charging technology that the said smartphone is having. Awesome.
As you may have noticed the trend on smartphone technology this year, almost all of them have become bezel-less. Both iPhone X and Pixel 2 XL have been up to this kind of competition and thus they adopted the bezel-less display as well.

It wouldn’t be unlocked when somebody else tries to fake you or wear a mask that looks like you. Pixel 2 XL, on the other hand, has its Fingerprint security which is mounted at the rear of the phone. This device wouldn’t be unlocked by any other fingerprints but yours only.
When comparing smartphones, one of the most looked for specs is the battery capacity. This gives the opportunity to you as its users to enjoy more of your smartphone before it would go battery empty. The world is just a wonderful place to explore with your device it would be great if it could last as long as you need it to.

You can surf the web, visit social media sites, have an online movie streaming, and do photography with these batteries. It would only differ now on how long you can do these activities and more.
When it comes to doing awesome adventures with your phone, iPhone X and Pixel 2 XL are definitely great companies. iPhone X has 12Mo rear camera and a 7MP front camera. Pixel 2 XL, however, has a 12.2MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera. With these, you can imagine the quality of photos that you can have in every capture. Although, the small difference between these devices’ cameras can totally make a difference.
For some smartphone users, the choice of which device is better can also have the price factor. For that matter, it is quite obvious that the iPhone X is more expensive than the Pixel 2 XL. The 64GB storage of iPhone X is for 1282.25 AUD while its 256GB is for 1474.78 AUD. Pixel 2 XL is offering a cheaper 64GB for 1089.72 AUD and the 128GB for 1218.07AUD.
