Alright, it seems like Samsung has threw in a lot on their flagship and even the Pixel XL can’t match the list but there are still some advantages of the new Google phone. First, you can opt for a 128GB internal storage option since the device doesn’t have any SD card slot. Second, its selfie camera will be able to capture more details of your pores. Lastly and perhaps the most important advantage is the Pixel’s priority when it comes to updates from Google. Its pure Android experience will benefit the phone in the long run.

The Galaxy Note7 is still the most feature-packed Android phone available and once the battery issue has been completely resolved, you’ll be confident to suggest it among friends.
