iPhone vs Android, it has been the battle for ages. While Apple and Samsung have been butting heads in the last decade with their flagship devices, Google, the company behind Android, has caught up with them of late with its Pixel range of smartphones. Its latest Pixel flagships, the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, go directly up against some of the best smartphones in the market. With Apple’s new iPhone series out now, know how the standard iPhone 15 fares against Google’s Pixel 7 which launched last year.
iPhone 15 vs Pixel 7: Display
With the iPhone 15 series, Apple has made its Dynamic Island standard across all models. The vanilla iPhone 15 features a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display with a resolution of 1179×2556 pixels at 460ppi. Despite the presence of Dynamic Island, it still does not get Apple’s ProMotion technology, meaning it still gets a 60Hz refresh rate. The iPhone 15 also gets Apple’s Ceramic Shield for protection.
On the other hand, the Google Pixel 7 sports a 6.3-inch OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. It sports a resolution of 1080×2400 pixels at 416ppi. It gets Corning Gorilla Glass Victus on the top.
