What makes Google Pixel different from Google Pixel Xl
Apart from the gap in their selling prices, you’ll have to take a look at the 5.5inch AMOLED display which is a lot better than the 5.0inch AMOLED display present in regular Google Pixel Smartphone not because of the size difference but because of the awesome resolution that Pixel XL has to offer, however regular one is also good and it cant be denied. The plus point of Pixel XL here is that the virtual reality will be better because of more per eye density. You’ll need to know that both the Smartphones are Daydream-ready

The next factor that will help you judge which Smartphone you should buy is that whether you need a Smartphone perfect for one hand operations which is Google Pixel or do you need a Smartphone which can act as a tablet as well to let you use two apps simultaneously via multi window mode.

Google gave us a good deal of glimpse into virtual world by Google cardboard but it was Samsung and Oculus which came out with a fully fledged Virtual reality sets for Smartphone use. Now Google has placed its handful of aces on deck and released two new Smartphones namely Pixel and Pixel XL, both ready for

google-daydream-viewGoogle DayDream vs Samsung Gear Vr

Daydream view
The credibility of an ideal Smartphone based VR system depends upon how comfortable the VR set is. Samsung released three generations of VR sets with each one refining the ease of use and now Google by introducing a bit more technology in the framework has made it even better. Daydream View uses wireless

  • NFC connection to start Daydream Home which makes its initial configuration less hectic unlike Gear VR and makes it support a huge range of premium Smartphones.
  • Gear VR now has a dedicated space for the people with glass while as Daydream View has also introduced this modification besides making the VR smaller and lighter. However Gear VR completely seals off your face when you wear it but Google has managed to make a wider padding on its sides and fits your face without sealing off.
  • The one big turnoff that Daydream View possesses is that the light sources present on the rear sides of the VR are not sealed which makes VR experience less immersive unlike Samsung Gear VR in which Samsung has burned their midnight oils to introduce matte plastics making experience very immersive without any visibility of a light vr
  • Another thing to be taken into consideration is that Daydream View makes use of single elasticated strap to fit your head while as Gear VR houses hardened plastics as well as a strap, thus being said that Daydream View is much more comfortable to use as compared to Gear VR.
  • Gear VR being assigned with different plastic mechanisms is heavier than Daydream view. Thus the main fact is that both the VR sets have a single weakness at a stake that being uncomfortable nature of Gear VR and light leakage problem of Daydream view. Thus its up to you to choose between the ease of use and immersive nature of performance.
  • You should also know that Daydream view saves your $20 which makes it $99 vs $79 battle. But the need of game-pad for Gear VR to run many apps and games in Oculus Home makes it around $150 for Gear VR unlike Daydream View which is ready to complete with Gear VR having a universal type compatibility and not only for their own devices. This gives Daydream View another advantage over a bit isolated type Gear VR.

It is pretty obvious that Samsung made huge profits this year not because of their premium Smartphone line up but because of Samsung Galaxy J Series Smartphones most notably Galaxy J7 which led Samsung to drop another nuke in the Smartphone arena by the name of Galaxy J7 (2016) which was just a superficial upgrade to Galaxy j7. Samsung has gone beyond the hood this time and dropped a fire dripping bomb shell in the midrange arena as an upgrade to J series i.e. Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime.

Samsung Galaxy J7Galaxy J7 2016 vs Galaxy j7 Prime 2016

Galaxy J7 prime flaunts all the assets pretty enough to make you crave for it. Starting with the frontal section, you will be getting a full HD display with resolution of 1080*1920 and pixel density of 401ppi. Its not as good as Galaxy A5 but its tremendously achieved upgrade of Galaxy J7 Smartphone which has 720p display. Galaxy J7 prime has been tested for its display and the performance is awesome so far. Addition of Gorilla Glass 4 protection to Galaxy J7 Prime is also worth admiration.
Although both the Smartphones are packed with 13MP rear camera and front flash but Galaxy J7 Prime has upper hand when it comes to front camera because it houses an 8MP front sensor as compared to 5MP’s of Galaxy J7.

Samsung Galaxy J7 is a giant when it comes to storage and processing capabilities since it comes with onboard storage of 32GB along with 3GB RAM. It is powered by an octa core Exynos 7580 processor. While as Galaxy J7 regular variant has just 16GB of internal storage with 1.5GB RAM. It clearly suggests that Galaxy J7 Prime is a slayer of regular Galaxy J7.
An eyeball catching feature that is seen in Galaxy J7 prime is the presence of Fingerprint sensor on its home button and Galaxy J7 lacks this feature which is a big turn off for tech giants. Likewise when we talk about the battery endurance, Galaxy J7 packs 3000mAh battery while as Galaxy J7 has shown improvement with its 3300mAh battery.
What makes us take the side of Galaxy J7 Prime is the pricing factor which Samsung has set for it. All the features present in this Smartphone are from premium shelf but nicely introduced in this midrange tearing Smartphone. Galaxy J7 Prime is undoubtedly the best buy Smartphone for the year 2016 however Galaxy J7 regular version is also the best you get the price tag that Samsung is offering. Overall it can be concluded that Samsung has given a hard blow to Midrange Smartphone sector by introducing a premium featured

Smartphone at the midrange price. Infact it was a much needed move for Samsung in order to get their spark back in the midrange Smartphone market which is the main concern of Chinese Smartphone market domination strategy.
