Google Pixel / Pixel XL Vs Apple iPhone 7 / 7 Plus: A Benchmark Performance Perspective

If you are a power user, you might want to read this before getting your hands on these phones.

Today we will be giving you a Google Pixel vs Apple iPhone benchmark performance perspective. Now Google may have impressed you with its fancy presentation of the Pixel and Pixel XL. The recent launch event was inspiring enough to gain early interest and attention for the phone.

However as far as early benchmarks are concerned Apple doesn’t have to sweat much about its performance. Geekbench 4 is actually of the view that the early benchmarks suggest that the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus are way a league above the Pixel Phones.

Both of the Apple devices did better on the single and multi core tests. Ironically even the older hardware of Apple including iPhone SE and iPhone 6S performed better the than the yet-to-be-released Google Pixel devices. The Pixel hardware is being manufactured by HTC.

This isn’t a bad choice from the hardware/software combination perspective but sadly for some the actual performance happens to be the real value of a device. Benchmark tests actually give you a general over view of the performance of a device and will give you a fair indication of how the device will perform in real time situations.

Now having that concept in my mind, the results obtained from the Pixel smartphones when ran through Geekbench 4 were a single score of 1550 and multi core score of 4000. On the other hand, Apple’s iPhone 7 gave significantly higher scores. The multi core return was 5500 and the single-core return was 3500.

These pixel results actually do fall in line with published scores which came out in September before Google gave its hardware announcement. What should be made note of is that even Apples older hardware such as iPhone 6S also beat the Pixel smartphones in the single-core performance.

This means Apple’s hardware has much more raw processing capability than any of the newly announced Pixel Phone. The new Pixel smartphones have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821. They also have 4 GB RAM.

However, Apple’s latest iPhone 7 series included an A10 Fusion with two complete cores dedicated for efficiency. Now this may not tell how the Pixel will perform in the real world but it certainly will make you take in to account while ordering.
