iPhone vs Android, it has been the battle for ages. While Apple and Samsung have been butting heads in the last decade with their flagship devices, Google, the company behind Android, has caught up with them of late with its Pixel range of smartphones. Its latest Pixel flagships, the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, go directly up against some of the best smartphones in the market. With Apple's new iPhone series out now, know how the standard iPhone 15 fares against Google's Pixel 7 which launched last year.

With the iPhone 15 series, Apple has made its Dynamic Island standard across all models. The vanilla iPhone 15 features a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display with a resolution of 1179x2556 pixels at 460ppi.
