Okay it's been six months since apple . first announced the iphone 10 and around . five months since google first announced . the pixel 2 and the pixel 2 xl so these . are both great phones which is what you . might expect because they're both . flagship phones but after actually using . them for a while it's clear to me at . least which one of these is the better . phone you mean the one that doesn't cost . a thousand dollars and it's still a . fantastic phone no no i missed this now . the iphone 10 was a pretty radical. redesign for apple it's the first iphone . without a home button it has an oled . display it sizes somewhere in between a . regular sized iphone and a plus iphone . and you can unlock it with your face ok . the smaller pixel 2 doesn't look all . that different from the first pixel but . the pixel 2 xl looks different it has a . nearly all screen front design both have . oled displays and keep in mind this is . only google's second generation of pixel . phones and already they're up there . competing with the top smartphone makers . okay well the iphone 10 is fast like . ridiculously fast its processors faster . than processors and a lot of laptops and . in the time that i've been using it i've . been kind of blown away by it . okay well the pixel 2 is no slouch . either it's running on a snapdragon 835 . processor which is powering all of the . top android phones right now it might . not be a bionic processor but it's still . pretty fast one of the biggest changes . with the iphone 10 though is that apple . has also redesigned the way you interact . with the phone so the way you switch . between apps or swipe to see . notifications now that i've used this . for a while i really like it . okay i'll admit it took me way longer to . get used to these interactions than i . thought it would and i wouldn't be . surprised if other people got the new . phone and hated it but now when i pick . up other phones i just think the iphone . tends ui is probably the way to do it . the pixel 2 has some ui changes too . although that's because of android and . not specific to pixels like the search . bar is now at the bottom of the home . screen and the display is always on . which seems like a small thing but after . a few months you kind of find that you . can't live without it. i mean one of the things that really . annoys me about that phone is that if . you just want to see . time you have to pick the phone up no i . don't okay what time is it now if you've . been seriously considering these phones . for the past few months then you've . probably read all of the camera. comparisons in fact the verge did one . that you should go check out but to sum . it up both of these phones have . excellent cameras on the pixel to excel . a lot of the camera improvements are . happening on the software side so for . example this now shoots in portrait mode. with a nice soft background which the . iphone has done for a while but this . phone doesn't have two cameras . yeah but the iphone 10 not only has . portrait mode it also has studio . lighting now like this that looks awful . well it's pretty great when it works . okay also we think that the pixel 2 xl . shoots a little bit better and lo white . just saying yeah but not that much . better also the iphone 10 and the iphone . 8 both support wireless charging which . your phone doesn't yeah but you can . charge the pixel 2 and the pixel to . excel with usb c which is how i charge . my macbook which means i'm just carrying . around fewer cables okay well your phone . doesn't have a headphone jack neither . does yours i'm just pointing out you're. finally catching up with the times your . point makes zero sense. another thing you're only going to get . with the iphone is siri now i know you . may be thinking siri is useless but the . more i've used it the better it has gone . you're kidding right . no ok let's do a test i'm gonna squeeze . the phone who is the star of the movie . the post . meryl streep tom hanks and 13 others no . problem hey siri who is the star of the . movie the post . i found nine movies for you to choose . from post-grad the post post pop . depression live at the royal albert hall . the last post new mommies how to get . your body back functional post pregnancy . ex yeah i'm sorry . google assistant is just better it just . it just is but i have faced id i . wouldn't go as far as saying that face . id is the best feature of the new iphone . 10 but i think it's the most significant . it means the one that feels like it's . propelling us forward into the future . now i need to unlock my phone or log . into apps or even just pay a friend with . a peer-to-peer app i just i just use my . face okay we literally wrote an article . about how face id was unusable if the . phone's not directly in front of you . like when you're in the car and said . that you missed having the home button . yeah but it's it's grown on me i mean i . still think the in-app experience is a . little bit more useful than using it to . unlock the phone but how's your . fingerprint sensor it's fine it's. totally fine and it works and it's in . the right place where it should be on . the back of the phone yeah so what . happens when you have your phone down on . the table face up. well i guess that's bad if you're the. kind of person who puts the phone down . never also i have an ammonia oh good god . what this really comes down to after . using both of these phones for a while . is ecosystem which ecosystem do you want. to live in or be locked into but really . this is a point that we agree on i mean . it's all about the apps and services . that you use the most . like i message you love imessage then no . matter how fantastic the pixel 2 or the . pixel 2xl are you're not going to really . want that phone because you can't get . imessage and if you don't care about . imessage and you don't care about using . airplay or airdrop or having an apple . watch and you want the most highly . optimized version of android that you . can get then you're going to want this . phone i mean i still use the same google . apps and services that you use on that . phone and i didn't pay thousand dollars . for this what she's really trying to say . is that they're both great phones and . you probably can't go wrong with either . of them but there is one that is . slightly better which is why it costs . slightly more you would say that so . these are my long-term impressions of . what it's like to use the iphone hey . you're back i'm back where have you been . i was off shooting my virg fiddy oh . series next level oh is that your . average video series about innovation . yes you should watch it you would learn . something . .
