Android is as secure as the iPhone - Google

Google Nexus 7 2016 To Take iPad Pro Head On In terms of Performance

Even though the feature has already been availed in the latest version of Project Fi app, only those using a Google Nexus 6P or Pixel XL that is running on Android Nougat can enjoy it.

It might be unusual advice to recommend an older phone when a new version has just launched. Android's head of security Adrian Ludwig touted Android's secure nature at the O'Reilly security conference in New York City on where he spoke at great length about the security that the new Google Pixel smartphone provided.

Still, some reviewers are calling the Pixel phones simply the "best g**damn phone in the world".

Moreover, the report concludes that Google's decision to incorporate Verizon as a launch partner for the Pixel and Pixel XL has greatly boosted the adoption rates for the search giant's flagship smartphone devices. If this speculation materialises, then this device will be the first to feature this operating system and prove to be a benchmark of how good this software will actually turn out to be on a commercial level.

Ludwig also said that because of the various security measures introduced across Android, it is nearly impossible for hackers to target to infect a large number of devices at the same time.

If you can afford one, you probably should go for the newer Pixel.

This change in trend is somewhat surprising given that the new Pixel phones are more expensive than any other Nexus handset before.

But if price is a factor (it has to be in the holiday season, right?), the decision might seem simpler.

Google's Pixel smartphones are not completely water-resistant, and don't have a microSD slot for extra storage.

The iPhone 7 Plus has the smallest battery of the group, a 2,900 mAh battery, followed by the Pixel XL with a 3,450 mAh battery, and the S7 Edge has the largest with 3,600 mAh battery. There was a lot of anticipation around the two phones, and now that they are here, the excitement is indeed widespread.

It was reported last week that Google Pixel, Pixel XL shipments in the USA were delayed as demand exceeded supply. The phones are built by HTC.
