pixel's geekbench scores are less than half of the 7's score on single thread. Insane. Yes benchmarks only matter to the phone that has the best scores of course the ones who lose always say benchmarks dont reflect real life, etc Supersaf on youtube has a comparison on the two phones side by side. And on the real life comparisons it looks similar for most apps except for the third party games on those it looks like the pixel loses to the 6S. That being said pixel is still a good phone it appears and that will only push apple to do better.
