What customers say about "Display"
Google Pixel 2 Unlocked 64gb (Black)
  • The display is absolutely beautiful. The new screen allows for individual pixels to be turned on or off which makes the blacks super dark as there's no backlight. I think this is also why the battery life is so awesome.
  • Screen brightness is significantly higher by default than the 6p. The battery life is also significantly different as far as drainage per usage minute surfing, games, music, etc. The size fits way better in my pocket and hand.
  • Out of the box, the Pixel 2 has an always on display showing the time/date, and app icon notification.
  • The screen, while vibrant and clear, is very bright. Its crisp clear and very pleasing to look at.
  • Automatic brightness is not responsive. It only dims a bit.
  • Bought this phone after it went on sale for $450 and it was nothing but problems for 3 days. The screen would lock up, the phone would randomly shut down and or restart.
Apple iPhone 7 Unlocked, Black US Version
  • Better display (wider colour gamut)
  • The Retina display is the same as it has been since the iPhone 4. 326 pixels per inch is a good looking display. It certainly does not compete with some other phones and their higher resolution screens, but for now, the screen still gets the job done.
  • One of the last great things about this phone is the display. When I first placed my order, I wondered if the display would live up to the claims. Wider-color gamut, 25% brighter. Well it definitely does. This is honestly one of the most color accurate displays I have ever seen
  • The display looks exactly like the 6s, I cannot tell the difference with my eyes. Overall I was expecting more from a $900 phone.
  • I have to say, this is a good phone but it's basically a 6s without a phone jack. Same display as the 6s.

What customers say about "Processor"
Google Pixel 2 Unlocked 64gb (Black)
  • There is absolutely no lag in this phone. As soon as you touch a button or spot on the screen, its already where you need to be before the entire weight of your finger crashes down. You can snap photos one after the other and not face any dreaded processing hold screen.
  • Snappy snapdragon 835 is amazing. It houses a phenomonal performance in the processor area, graphical area with the adreno graphics and it is efficient on battery.
  • I got this phone for my wife and she loves it. It's clean and fast android.
  • I purchased this about a month ago and so far I really like it The Google Pixel 2 is fast and the picture quality is very good.
  • Get this phone over the Iphone, it is so super fast and so much easier to you. All of your stuff is saved via your google account, and not some stupid apple ID. Great phone camera and overall visually great display.
Apple iPhone 7 Unlocked, Black US Version
  • This is the pinnacle of the IOS software experience. The 2GB of RAM, the A10 processor, and the implementation of IOS 10 is great. Everything runs well and quickly.
  • The processor allows multitasking between various applications without any delays in output.
  • Great phone overall with a very fast processor, and doesn't overheat. On my iPhone 5s, I would notice quickly that my phone would become hot, but not with the iPhone 7. I would recommend this to anyone that is trying to get the best operating system, but at the same time the fastest phone
  • First the processor, its amazing, but so is the processor in just about every phone now a days. But considering this phone is more powerful then any MacBook or MacBook Air, or Even iPad ever created, its pretty remarkable.
  • Launching Apps on the iPhone 7 is quicker than other Smartphones. Its processor works very fast and is capable of running high graphic games and supporting convoluted photo-editing applications.

What customers say about "Camera"
Google Pixel 2 Unlocked 64gb (Black)
  • Don't get me wrong, the camera is the best I've seen on a phone. But comparing to the Nexus 5x, you don't notice THAT much of a difference.However, with the performance, you can actually take pictures and not have the phone crash on you.
  • The phone is not as user friendly as the iPhone, but once you get it set up to your liking, it's amazing. The camera is terrific.
  • The camera on here is great. It is steady and accurate. The photo capturing while moving in motion to get the best shot possible is phenominal. Camera sensor is accurate on color, depth, clarity and blows the previous generation out the water.
  • The phone had an excellent camera that topped the iphone X that my girlfriend has.
  • This phone has the best camera out of any of the 15 phones I've had in the past which were always the latest and greatest at the time. Takes flawless pics even when really quickly snapping pics and shaking.
Apple iPhone 7 Unlocked, Black US Version
  • While the cameras have been improved for both the iPhone 7 and the 7 Plus, it is the 7 Plus that gets the dual camera that allows for extra zoom and portrait mode. T
  • camera takes much better pics (increased the megapixels and the difference is noticeable) and it has 5X zoom capability.
  • Unfortunately, the iPhone7 doesn’t have the second lens( as the iPhone plus has), The selfie camera was improved though, and I see a difference between evening photos taken with iPhone 6s and 7.
  • The camera is EXCELLENT. I've been a photographer for the better part of my life, and can leave my Nikon at home and walk out with this and be confident that any shots I need to take, can be taken with this. HDR is a must.
  • Very glitchy, several issues with the camera (black patch in corner) and sometimes takes a very long time to warm up and turn on from standby.

What customers say about "Features"
Google Pixel 2 Unlocked 64gb (Black)
  • OK Google detection is much improved. Not sure if this is due to hardware or software, but I no longer have issues waking my phone up to tell it to create a reminder or something like that.
  • Finger print sensor is lightning fast. Haven't had too many issues with my fingerprint not reading although I did load the same finger twice to get better results.
  • Always on display is great when you're sleeping and as you can glace over to look if you have it on a smartphone stand on the nightstand.
  • I miss the headphone jack. i use corded headphones regularly. That being said, I rarely use the headphone jack and charge the phone at the same time so using the USB-C to 3.5 mm audio adapter hasn't been an issue.
  • Bluetooth volume doesn't match the folume range of the Bluetooth device. In other words I can control the full range of the Bluetooth in 20% of the volume visual control range.
Apple iPhone 7 Unlocked, Black US Version
  • SPEED, I was using a 6s and I notice a much snappier Safari and iMessage screens. Part of it may be IOS 10 but pages pop really fast. It is way way faster than the original 6.
  • Best iPhone ever hands-down .apples best product and this is coming from Emma android user I just love iOS 10 because it is somewhat like android marshmallow
  • The speed is incredible. The Touch ID is faster than you might want. The haptic feedback home button is genius.
  • Siri still lags behind Google's assistant, and that gap is only widening. Google' AI is so much better compared to Apple.
  • Headphone jack. This is a big drawback on a few levels.There is no immediate benefit to the removal of the headphone jack. Yes, you do get more space for a little more speaker boost but one can easily argue that most people will listen to their music more via headphones than just out of their phone

What customers say about "Power"
Google Pixel 2 Unlocked 64gb (Black)
  • With my previous Nexus 5x, if I used the phone (basic stuff like reading news, listening to music, and maybe watching a couple youtube videos/using the maps app) I could maybe make it half a day. With the Pixel 2 after a day of light use I still have 50% battery left.
  • Battery: EASILY make it through a day. Heavy use acquired about 5-5.5 hours of screen on time MAX.
  • This phone has great features and a very good battery life!
  • Easy to use, intuitive, very user friendly, long long long battery life.
  • Battery drain so fast after using it for 30 days. Reached out to google, recognized problem with the battery but asked me to get it exchanged through Bestbuy or Verizon.
Apple iPhone 7 Unlocked, Black US Version
  • Battery life is decent. Way better than my S5 I had before it.
  • The device keeps running smoothly, long lasting battery and still works and looks as new, no complains
  • Battery life held up respectably for me, usually lasting me 1.5 days on a single charge. I'm not a heavy user, however, so your mileage may vary. In general, this delivered slightly better battery life than the iPhone 6 for me.
  • The new battery is much better. I can listen to the music almost all day long, browse the internet for a few hours, make couple of calls and use other apps without charging my iPhone7 in the middle of the day. I also noticed that it takes less to fully charge the phone.
  • The battery runs down very fast. I dont even make calls on it yet nor do i download any social app on it yet and it just ran down. Is it that the battery i got with the phone not good?
