#PixelXL #GalaxyNote7 – Why Google Pixel XL Is The Best Note 7 Alternative : For owners of the Galaxy Note 7, refunding their money is not the hardest thing to do – finding the best handset to replace their handset is. At the moment, Google Pixel XL stands as the best alternative for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The only question is this: is the Pixel XL really the best Note 7 alternative?
In A Nutshell: Pixel XL Is Like A Lite Version Of The Galaxy Note 7
For users who wish to consider the near perfect specs of the Galaxy Note 7, there is no better contender than the Google Pixel XL. One of the strongest points of the Pixel XL compared to the Note 7 is that it is made by Google that means that it will be the first to receive Google updates in just about everything.
This is not the first time that Google made their own phone. But, this is the first time that the company made a handset that is at par with Apple’s premium hardware quality and even better internals to compete with smartphone giant, Samsung.
In terms of power, performance, processor and memory, the Google Pixel XL is almost similar with the Galaxy Note 7. Google made their Pixel phones with the thought of denting the market for Apple but they shared the market with Samsung instead. Google has the biggest possibility of reigning in Android market now that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is already out of the picture. So why exactly is Pixel the best smartphone alternative to the Note 7?
Better Processor And Performance
When the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was launched, the handset carries the powerful Snapdragon 820, a quad-core chip from Qualcomm with two Kryo cores clocked at 2.15GHz and an Adreno 530 GPU. As expected, the Note 7 got an impressive high score in GFX bench tests and AnTuTu 6 benchmark.
But Google Pixel XL is equipped with the Snapdragon 821, the latest chipset from Qualcomm with similar Kryo cores as the Note 7 and the same clock speeds as well. The Pixel XL and Note 7 share the same powerful Andreno 530 GPU, too. Qualcomm declares that the 821 Snapdragon chipset has a 10 percent better capability than the 820 Snapdragon which makes the Pixel XL the winner for this round.
