Despite the terrible fate of their Note 7 lineups, Samsung is still rolling in 2016 with a new Galaxy S7 line-up. On the other end, Google, meanwhile, hopes to be a part of one of the year's top sellers with its upcoming Pixel phone. With that, the two devices are compared against each other on paper to see which is better.

Design

Galaxy S7: 142x70x7.9mm, 152g, IP68 certification, microUSB port

Google Pixel: 143.4x70x8.6mm, 143g, USB Type-C

The two phones aren't really different in terms of dimensions. The feel is pretty much the same. The Pixel has a curved metal chassis while the S7 has a metal and glass finish. But among the two, the Galaxy seems to be the most desirable one.

Although they are completely similar, the Pixel seems to be a bit plain, but the mirrored coating that encases the camera and fingerprint sensor seems to be an acceptable feature.

Display

Galaxy S7: 5.1in 2560x1440 resolution at 577ppi

Google Pixel: 5in, 1920x1080 resolution at 441 ppi

No doubt, the Galaxy S7 dominates the Pixel in terms of its screen. It features a powerful Super AMOLED panel that enhances the resolution to QHD.

With that, it's pretty questionable for Google deciding to limit the Pixel to Full HD, since it wants to compete with the S7, and it has full knowledge about the device's display features from the get-go.

Operating system

Galaxy S7: Android 6.0 Marshmallow, TouchWiz

Google Pixel: Android 7.1 Nougat

Pixel wins the OS matchup no doubt. With the Pixel, You have a phone with the latest Android version, equating to a more updated experience on the Google phone, along with numerous OS upgrade possibilities.

Summary

With all things said, despite Google's aggressive approach towards promoting their Pixel phones, Samsung's Galaxy S7 seems to be the one that brings a lot more to the table. But then again, this is just based on a small comparison.

In order to fully compare the two, a much deeper analysis would be needed. We will be expecting for more matchups and clashes between these two smartphones in the near future.
