Also the screen size of Google Pixel is 5 inch and that of iPhone 7 is 4.7 inch. The screens of Pixel phones use AMOLED panels and have higher resolution with more vibrancy in colours in comparison to iPhone 7.

Google claims that Pixel hosts the best ever camera as it makes use of Sony IMX 378 image sensor. Even though both iPhone and Pixel have 12 MP camera, the Pixel camera has a bigger sensor that boosts its low light performance and renders technically better and clearer images than the iPhone 7.
