Is the Google Pixel an iPhone killer?

Google is coming for the iPhone with its newest flagship phone, the Pixel. The announcement was essentially a roundabout way of saying they copied the iPhone and put Google hardware and Android on it, and it was a convincing pitch. Between Google Assistant, VR, fast charging, unlimited cloud storage, and the better camera, the Pixel is a solid competitor. But is it enough to lure Apple loyalists away from the iPhone? 

PERSPECTIVES

Here’s the product page. Check out the specs and decide for yourself (it has a headphone jack).

Google even included a special cable and OS migration assistant to make it easy to go from iPhone to Pixel.

There’s no denying it’s an iPhone copy though, and like all iPhone copies, it’s probably destined to flop.
