Google Pixel 2 XL update Samsung Galaxy S9 Android
This is the current top of the range North American manufacturer. Can you stand up to the Galaxy's?

In 2016, Google would cease to be a software-only company and a hardware company. It was this year that we met the first generation of "Pixel". Now, with Google Pixel 2, the world has marveled at its photographic potential. DxOmark considers them the best Android smartphones for photography. Now the Samsung Galaxy S9 has arrived with an extremely promising camera.

The South Korean manufacturer has put almost all its assets into the Samsung Galaxy S9's photographic department. We'll have to wait a while to see if the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have a rival to match, or even a new "King" for this one. ranking photographic quality.

Incidentally, the Samsung Galaxy S9 is a new camera and little more. With the addition of a new processor, a re-location of the fingerprint sensor and some new color schemes. This will be an ideal smartphone for anyone who wants one of the best cameras, if not the best on an Android smartphone. For € 869.99 it won't be much more expensive than a Google Pixel 2. Also, finding a Google Pixel 2 in UK, by itself, will be a herculean task. The price of Pixel 2, not available in UK, is around 600 €.

Something that will completely separate them is the Android experience. On the one hand we have the operating system in its purest state. With updates before all others and monthly security updates. On the other we have a highly customized environment by Samsung itself with its Experience 9.0.

Google Pixel 2 vs Samsung Galaxy S9

Either way, both smartphones already use Android Oreo 8.0, one of the latest versions of this operating system from Google. Here is a comparison of their specifications. Lists make it much easier to grasp content and allow you to compare it, step by step, simply. We can see some hardware advantages in the Samsung Galaxy S9, namely a new processor, already slightly superior to Snapdragon 835.

What's the final balance since Android "duel"?

If you are looking for a smartphone with pure Android. Well, then it's not a hard choice to make. Here Google Pixel 2 leaves no room for doubt. On the other hand, Samsung Experience can already add a good deal of productivity to the device itself. Your appearance is also becoming more pleasant.

The hardware. Here the Samsung Galaxy S9 has a clear processor advantage as it uses the new Qualcomm Exynos 9810 or Snapdragon 845. Not that the Pixel 2 is poorly equipped but the advantage of the South Korean manufacturer is clear.

Which Android device would you choose for yourself?

The chamber. Here we still have to gauge the true value and performance of the new camera of the Samsung Galaxy S9. Note that both smartphones use only one sensor. However, the S9 has a variable lens aperture. Something that in practice may give you more "weapons" to adapt to all kinds of conditions.

In short, there is a slight price difference here between both terminals. However, the big duel will be more software, in the matter of pure Android or Samsung interface. The cameras are great, with Google Pixel 2 already tested and approved by many entities. Already the new equipment of South Korea still needs a full analysis.

Moreover, hopefully later this year the American will bring her next generation of tops to UK. It is high time that we could enjoy not only your software but also your hardware. Especially now with a Google center in Oeiras, we hope for the best.

Which would you choose for yourself?
