Head-To-Head: Apple iPhone 8 Vs. Google Pixel 2
Processor & RAM
Both the iPhone 8 and Pixel 2 feature processors that combine major performance with battery efficiency. The iPhone 8 uses Apple's new six-core A11 Bionic -- the same processor that powers the higher-end iPhone X device -- which reportedly runs at up to 2.39GHz. Two cores are meant for providing top performance, while the rest are aimed at providing better battery efficiency for less-intensive use.
The Pixel 2 includes the eight-core Snapdragon 835, which is clocked at up to 2.45GHz and is the fastest Qualcomm mobile processor currently on the market. Google also packs 4 GB of RAM into the Pixel 2, which is double that of the iPhone 8. Both phones will no doubt offer amazing performance -- thanks also to the fact that Apple and Google are responsible for the underlying operating systems of the phones in addition to the hardware.
