How will the Galaxy S9 compare to the Pixel 2?

by John_A

The Pixel 2 will soon go head-to-head with Samsung’s latest.

If you want to buy a flagship Android phone right now, one of your best bets is the Google Pixel 2. While no phone is perfect, the Pixel 2 gets darn close with a top-of-the-line camera, strong build quality, ultra-fast performance, and more. However, in just a couple weeks, it’ll have to face up against the incoming Samsung Galaxy S9.


The Galaxy S9 is expected to be an iterative update compared to the S8, but considering how good that phone was, the S9 should be pretty darn awesome. As such, the Pixel 2 will have to prove why it’s still worth your dollars more than what Samsung has to offer.

I swap a lot .. I have the past few years. From Samsung, LG, Apple, Pixel, etc. etc.

This year I plan to stick with my Pixel 2 XL until at least the Pixel 3 or something. Need to simma down on the changing :P.


Now, we’d like to hear what you have to say — How do you think the Galaxy S9 will fare against the Pixel 2?
