Google Pixel XL Vs. Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

Our good friends over at HotHardware have pit the Google Pixel XL against the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge in a battle to the death. Just kidding, despite this being a "hot hardware" review, none of the phones in this review exploded or caught on fire.

As a perennial Samsung Galaxy S series user, I decided it was high time, beyond just the sterile confines of a product review, to live with Google’s latest Android purist device for an extended period of time. I’ve spent quality time with Nexus devices in the past, but the Google Pixel XL, with its 5.5-inch AMOLED display, felt like a possible successor as a daily driver for me. So, here are my high level take-aways of a Galaxy S7 Edge to Pixel XL migration, from hardware to software, and creature comforts.
