Welcome to the age where more smartphones are released everyday than babies born! Don’t be surprised if this is actually true. So, when so many phones come out, an inevitable subject is the comparison between them. This is also the case of Google Pixel and Sony Xperia XZ. It may be surprising to hear, because Sony and Google are not very often subject of comparisons. You can blame Samsung and Apple for that. But if you want to find out some details about those two smartphones, keep reading. It is going to be fun!
Google Pixel versus Sony Xperia XZ
First things first. The specifications. We know that Google has not yet revealed its Pixel phones, but some details have come out before its October 4 official release. Specs are part of those details. According to the reports, Google Pixel will have a 5-inch full HD display, a 12.3-megapixel rear camera plus a fingerprint sensor. Nice right? Bad news is Xperia XZ does not have those. But what it has is a 5.2-inch Full HD IPS display with a 1080p resolution. The rear camera sports 23-megapixels. So camera-wise, this is a win for Xperia XZ. The front facing camera is also better on the Xperia XZ, 13-megapixels, while Google Pixel has only an 8-megapixel front facing camera. But we should all keep one thing in mind. That is the fact that more megapixels do not necessarily mean higher quality pictures. It just means larger resolution ones.
When it comes to the battery, Xperia XZ wins again with a 2,900 mAh battery. Google’s is slightly weaker. But Google Pixel will reportedly have a 4GB of RAM, while his opponent will only have 3GB. The processors of both phones are pretty similar, so this will not be a valid criterion when choosing one or the other. Xperia’s only 3BG of RAM might be a bit of a problem these days. It is not really understandable why did they choose such a small memory but it is not a smart move. Both phones will have 32 GB on board storage capacity. But it can be extended up to 256 GB.
The Xperia XZ is heavier and slimmer. Goggle Pixel is lighter in comparison. Performance wise, the two phones cannot be tested because the Google Pixel is not out yet. So this will have to wait. Also, those fun physical endurance tests will start coming out once the phone is released and the public will get their hands on both phones.
The Sony Xperia XZ is the only one that ca be bought. Its price? $699.99. Exactly! But we will not make any further comment regarding this fact. Google Pixel is also expected to be sold at around $650, so there is not such a big difference between the two phones.
All in all, while a clear comparison is not yet possible, do not fear! They will soon start coming out like mushrooms after a rainy day. Our advice? Read those carefully and invest in the phones you think suits you the most. That’s the most important thing.
