Theres no denying that the iPhone 7s A10 fusion chip is quite a beast. Fellow YouTuber Super Saf made a comparison video of the Pixel going head to head against the iPhone 7 in two speed tests. The first one is a performance speed test, which shows us the benchmark results between the two devices and both devices abilities to load and recall apps onto the RAM.
The Pixel tends to load games slower than the iPhone 7 while the Pixel struggles to keep up. Otherwise, the Pixel is able to keep up with the iPhone 7 fairly well. The less-intensive apps like calculator and browser, are otherwise right on par with the iPhone 7. Meanwhile, the camera does open a touch faster which is super important for those who dont want to miss the shot because their phone decided to lag.
The second video is a fingerprint comparison test where the clear winner is the Pixel. Super Saf went as far as even disabling the animations as they could have been slowing down the iPhone 7 from reaching its home screen. The result is the same, with the Pixel winning just before the iPhone 7.
Google still has a bit to go to catch up to the iPhone 7 in terms of software optimization and now raw performance. Regardless, its got a great device on its hands, we cannot wait to get our hands on our own units and test them for ourselves!
