No notifications are displayed on the Apple iPhone screen in order to ensure there is no distraction for the user.

Apple takes a different route with its in-house designed mobile processor known as the A11 Bionic.

It also features a 5-inch HD AMOLED display. The iPhone X camera hasn't been tested yet, but it is expected to be only slightly better than the iPhone 8 Plus because it features dual optical image stabilization. Hence, it is safe to say, the newly launched flagship device from Google now flaunts the best smartphone camera.

We did enjoy the Pixel look and feel, though, which offered a clean and neat Android operating system, much alike to the Nexus experience.

Pixel Buds were priced at US$159 (RM675) and will be available in the United States beginning in November. Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, both the devices are offering in 64 GB and 128 GB storage variants. Max starts at $399 and comes with a free year of YouTube Music, slightly more expensive than the competing HomePod at $349. No, in typical Google fashion it did not stock up enough units so it could be December before you get to own your panda XL. To have even remotely quality bluetooth buds, you have to fork over a large sum of many, and even then, many are not worth it. Considering Google's new direction, we are expecting to see more exclusive services and features for the Google hardware. It's a built-in object recognition tool.

If you really want to use regular headphones with the new Pixel phones, you can rely on an adapter. For instance, pointing it at a dog will provide you details on what kind of dog it is.
