Google Pixel XL versus Apple iPhone 7 speaker test - quick bass test

Loading the player ...

This is a very down and dirty comparison of low-end audio performance on the Apple iPhone 7 and the Google Pixel XL as recorded on a Sony Xperia XZ phone! There's no specialist audio equipment here. But the output is a fair reflection of reality. We've used the opening of Bjork's Army of Me as it's a cacophony of bass and quickly shows up differences in the low-end audio frequencies. Volume is maxxed on both devices. As you may be able to tell - the Pixel XL gets a bit louder and punchier - but not by much. Neither phone is great.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
