Head-To-Head: Samsung Galaxy S8 Vs. Google Pixel

The large display size on the Galaxy S8 makes a comparison with the Pixel not quite an apples-to-apples situation. The Galaxy S8 features a display that is 5.8 inches diagonally, versus 5 inches diagonally for the Pixel. Still, the S8 is the smaller of Samsung's two new Galaxy smartphones (the S8 Plus is even larger), so comparing with the Pixel, the smaller of the new Google phones, is the best we can do.

The S8 is the winner on resolution with its Quad HD+ (2,960 x 1,440), Super AMOLED display. Google goes with an AMOLED screen for the Pixel, with FHD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution. Though both displays are curved on the front left and right sides, the Pixel features a 2.5D curve while the S8 has more of a gradual curve that tapers over the edges of the phone.
