2) Software and Hardware

The iPhone X mounts an Apple A11 exa-core processor, a processor that provides much higher performance than its predecessors. The RAM is 3 GB with 64, 256 and 512 GB internal memory that can not be expanded. Google Pixel 2 XL, on the other hand, has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor, which delivers really cool performance. The RAM is 4 GB, while the internal memory is 64 or 128 GB and can not be expanded.

As far as hardware is concerned, the iPhone X has the back completely in glass, allowing you to use wireless charging. The smartphone's edges are made from stainless steel and give this jewel some elegance. The Home button disappears and the display lights up simply by touching the screen. The side button instead is dedicated to Siri. Google Pixel 2 Xl is higher, giving you a lower level of maneuverability. However, these dimensions are justified by a 3520mAh battery which guarantees a great autonomy and the presence of two front stereo speakers that offer superior audio power to all other competitors.

In the UK, the release of the new iPhone X is planned for November 3 for a price starting at £999 and that's for the 64GB model. For the 256GB model, you're looking at a whopping £1,149. Instead, Google Pixel 2 XL is available from November 15 starting from £799 for the 64GB model and £899 for the 128GB.
