Google has announced its two new flagship smartphones in the form of the Pixel and the Pixel XL.

The latter is the more exciting of the two devices, with a design that follows the trend of other 2017 flagship devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Apple iPhone X, offering an almost all-screen front.

We have compared the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL, as well as the new asus zenfone 5 battery against their predecessors in separate features but here we are looking at how the new Google Pixel 2 XL compares to the Apple iPhone X.

Google Pixel 2 XL vs Apple iPhone X: Design

The Google Pixel 2 XL features a design made from a combination of glass and metal, with a metal frame and a glass panel at the top of the rear housing the single-lens camera sensor. There is a circular fingerprint sensor just beneath the glass panel on the back, while "G" branding is positioned at the very bottom of the rear.

The Pixel 2 XL has an almost all screen front with very slim bezels at the top and bottom featuring front-facing speakers within them, and there is a orange button on the right edge with the volume rocker for a splash of colour.

The Apple iPhone X meanwhile, has a metal and glass design too, though the entire rear is glass, rather than just a panel at the top like the Pixel 2 XL. There is a dual-camera setup in the top left-hand corner, along with an Apple logo in the middle of the rear.

The front is all screen, with just a small tab at the top for the front-facing camera and sensors, while stereo speakers are positioned either side of the Lightning port at the bottom of the device.

Both the Google Pixel 2 XL and the Apple iPhone X are waterproof but the Apple iPhone X is also compatible with wireless charging.

Google Pixel 2 XL vs Apple iPhone X: Display

The Google Pixel 2 XL has a 6-inch AMOLED display with a Quad HD+ resolution of 2880 x 1440, which puts its pixel density at 538ppi.

It has an aspect ratio of 18:9, like the LG V30 and LG G6 and the Pixel 2 XL also has an always on option, allowing you to see notifications and important information even when the main display is off.

The Apple iPhone X has a 5.8-inch Super Retina HD OLED display with a resolution of 2436 x 1125 pixels, which puts its pixel density at a little softer than the Pixel 2 XL at 458ppi.

It too has an 18:9 aspect ratio though there is no always on display option, but it does add HDR compatibility. The iPhone X also offers 3D Touch, which is Apple's version of a pressure sensitive display and it also comes with Apple's True Tone technology, meaning the display adapts to its surroundings.

Google Pixel 2 XL vs Apple iPhone X: Cameras

The Google Pixel 2 XL comes with a single rear camera sensor with a 12.2-megapixel resolution, with 1.4µm pixels and an aperture of f/1.8.

It features both dual pixel phase detection autofocus, laser detection autofocus, optical and electrical image stabilisation and it also offers software-induced Portrait Mode for Bokeh images. The front-facing camera is 8-megapixels with an aperture of f/2.4, like the 2016 Pixel XL.

The Apple asus parts has a dual-rear camera comprised of two 12-megapixel sensors, one telephoto with an f/2.4 aperture and one wide-angle with a f/1.8 aperture. It has dual optical stabilisation on board, along with hardware-induced Portrait Mode and Portrait Lighting mode.

The front camera is a 7-megapixel sensor with a f/2.2 aperture. It too offers Portrait Mode and Portrait Lighting Mode, along with a Retina Flash but it also offers body and face detection. This latter feature enables FaceID, allowing users to unlock their device and pay using Apple Pay with their face, replacing the need for a fingerprint sensor.
