As we can see here there are no major differences in the specs and Nexus 6P is really doing well in the comparison, but as google has claimed the Pixel is having 89 DXO rating when it comes to the new and improved camera which is allegedly better than the all new iPhone7.

Currently, with these mere differences, I don’t see any upside in the google’s new phone business,but it can be an exception as #Nexus line, which was also an underdog within the internal universe of google.
