This is my science project for testing putting different objects on my mousetrap car. I tested the different distances and speeds. These Items are, a hardrive, a book, and a drink.
I think that the harddrive and the phone will go approximately the same distance since the weight is approximately the same. The book will probably go the least distance since its the heaviest.
I tested it on the driveway of our house. First was the hard drive. IT went approximately 75% of the way there.
I tested the drink next. It was filled 20% of the way up. It wet 3 inches more than the harddrive did.
The book was last. Even though it was the heaviest, it went all the way to the end of the driveway and onto the road.
In conclusion, I was wrong on how I thought that the Book would go the least distance. I believe that it went the furthest because I think the ratio of the arm length to the distance it has to pull, is too powerful for the axle. With the book, there's more weight and downforce to keep the axle from spinning out.
The cost of the iPhone is $350 dollars more than the standard sized Pixel 2. With that money, you can buy one Moto G5, which I might say, can unlock faster than the iPhone. The Pixel 2's price is exactly the same as what a base level-iPhone used to cost until the iPhone 8.
Google does make a larger version of the Pixel 2. It has the same processor and battery, but a larger screen, and less of the front of the phone wasted on bezel. This only costs $850, which leaves the $150 to spend, and $350 if you buy the 128gb iPhone X. Which I might add, can buy another Moto G5.
The screen on both of the phones are the same on paper. The screen on the Pixel 2 xl, is a POled, which is an oled panel with a polymer on it. This might have some blue shift issues when you’re looking at it off axis. This rarely ever happens unless you’re trying to find issues, or just being an idiot.
The iPhone 10’s screen is made from Samsung. They apparently tweaked it to make it a “Super-Retina Display” which is really just saying, “we can’t make anything new, so just give a name that hasn't appeared on the market yet.”
The notch on the iPhone X is horrendous. At least on other android devices like the Oneplus 6, LG G7, Huawei P20, Essential P-1, and the ASUS ZenFone 5 (just to name a few), have small enough notches to fit all of the essentials on the top (all notifications, wifi, bluetooth, do not disturb, battery saver, data, airplane mode, and the night mode).
You may argue the fact that the reason the why the iPhone’s notch is so big is because, there has to be room for the sensors for Face ID. There really isn’t a reason to include Face ID, except to keep the Apple logo (and courage (headphone jack)). Touch ID was more accurate and faster in the first place. They could’ve fit the fingerprint scanner there and no one would mind (Samsung S8 and S9, Oneplus 5 and 6, LG G6 and G7, etc.).
Having the fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone is actually very advantageous. When you grab your phone, your index finger naturally lands there. You can swipe down from the top of the fingerprint scanner, and see your notifications.
From the start, my phone has Trusted Face (face unlock), which unlocks faster than Face ID. It isn’t even the main feature.
The speakers on the Pixel 2 is just simply better. It is front firing and far more clear. There's a little bit of bass. If its front firing, you can’t block the speaker holes.
Charging with USB-C is simply faster than charging with lightning. See any battery charge test on youtube and you’ll see the iPhone comes in last everytime. It's usually 30min to one hour slower than the Pixel 2, and definitely 1hr than the OnePlus phones. The same thing with the battery drain tests. The iPhone always uses up its battery the fastest.
Inside the box on the Pixel 2, it comes with a 18 watt wall adapter. While on the iPhone, it only comes with a 5 watt power changer, even though Apple could’ve put in a fast charger. WIth pockets so deep, it wouldn’t make a dent in their pocket to include a better wall adapter.
Even though the Pixel 2 has one single camera compared to the iPhone X’s dual cameras, it out shoots the iPhone X in almost every way. The Pixel 2’s camera has a wider aperture, allowing more light to go into the sensor, and more sharpness and detail doe to the amazing processing it does.
According to DXO Mark, the Pixel 2 scores one point higher than the iPhone X. It has gained this edge over the iPhone X with the excellent abilities to adapt in bright light and adapt in low light. The bokeh or “portrait mode” on the Pixel 2 is objectively better than the iPhone’s.
When taking a photo with portrait mode on the iPhone X it usually doesn't define some of the distinct features well like hair or grass. While on the Pixel 2, you have two options to choose from when you take a portrait shot to practically eliminate the margin of error.
Google assistant is definitely better than Siri. When you search for something, Google Assistant brings up more direct information. Siri on the other hand, will bring up 5 articles for you to read.
Google Assistant also does a much more detailed job at everything. Just to list one example, when you ask Google Assistant to take a selfie, not only does it bring you to the front facing camera, it counts from 3-1 to take a photo hands free.
Speaking in foreign languages is also better on Google Assistant than on Siri. It brings up direct translations instead of a chart that brings up the different translations.
The Little Things:
Gestures are a very important part of the Pixel Experience. Starting with the most basic one: launching the camera. You can launch the camera in half a second by double pressing the power button. Just in case you need to take a picture of something while in the car.
Swiping down on the fingerprint scanner to bring up notifications. This gesture is very handy on a phone this large. You don’t have to slide your phone down just to see your notifications, in risk of having to drop your phone.
Squeezing the phone for google assistant is also very helpful, you no longer have to hold down the power button or the home button for your helpful (if Google Assistant) or “helpful” (if Siri) assistant. This is the fastest way to launch the assistant on any phone.
Twisting twice to switch the camera around is also very helpful. You no longer have to slide your hand down again, in risk of dropping your phone, you just simply double twist and you switch cameras.
The Ambient Display is a handy tool for a quick glance at your notifications or just to check the time. It barely wastes any battery at all. Maybe 1% per day
You might see the new flagship phones like the iPhone 7 and the Samsung S8 very appealing to you. But, then you look at the price! $650 for a phone! Why would you want to pay that much for a camera and glass? Wouldn't you want to pay less?
The One Plus 5 is a great option if you don;t want to spent as much as the top flagships.
There are two cameras on the back of this phone. One of them is zoomed in so that when you zoom on your phone there is no loss of image quality. The second is just a regular camera. They both are 16 MP cameras. This 1/3 more that the iPhone 7's camera. It has EIS.
The front camera also has 16 MP un like the iPhone 7's 7MP's front facing camera. More than the double the MPs.
I has a 3300 mh battery unlike the iPhone 7's 1500 mh battery.
The One Plus 5 has a ip67 rating. This means that it is resistant to dust and small things. This is also means it is "resistant" to water just like the iPhone 7. This means you can drop it in the pool and have it perfectly fine.
Durability is an essential to every phone. The One Plus 5 has passed every tech youtuber's durability tests. from dropping it from 50 feet, to bending it, to sitting on it, to dunking it in water. It has passed every one.
The phone has a Snapdragon 835 which is the same as the new Samsung Phones.

The followings are the reason why you should buy LG G6 instead.
LG G6 cameras allow for you to take a very wide angle shot. Even better than the iPhone 7 which has 90-degree camera. The "camera" has two cameras. One of them being black and white and one that takes color. The phone combines the pictures together to make the photo more realistic and with more vibrant color. The camera is flush with the back side of the phone. That means that the cameras are harder to damage in a drop. The front camera has 100-degree wide angle shot.
LG G6's battery has a 3000 MH battery while comparing to iPhone 7 which only has a 2500 MH battery. The battery can last 20 hours running nonstop. The battery has straight edges and pointy corners, which helps the battery not blow up. Samsung even noted that one of the reasons that the battery exploded in the Note 7 is that the battery had curved edges. Another possibility for the Note 7 exploding is that it had metal impurities. They have a fail safe for that too.
The screen is 5.7 inches! That’s huge! It also doesn’t have a curved screen edge, so the palm of my hand doesn’t accidentally touch it.
LG G6 has an IP68 water and dust resistance rating. The back of the phone is shut with adhesive. All the other ports such as the speaker, headphone jack, are all sealed with a waterproof mesh. This means that accidentally dropping your phone in the middle of the pool for 30 minutes is not a big deal. The speaker is completely sealed off from the rest of the phone. That means that if water does manage to get inside of the speaker, it won’t affect the rest of the phone.
This phone also has wireless charging. This is why the back of the phone is made of glass. Don’t worry about the back glass breaking because it is made of gorilla glass 5.
Dropping an iPhone can be a disaster. It leaves a huge dent that you can’t fix. With the LG G6, LG sells replacement parts. The LCD has shaved off corners that don't crack or get damaged like other phones.
This phone also has a slot for a micro-SD card slot to add extra memory.
LG G6's processor is the hardest working part of your phone. That is why there is a copper heat pipe. This helps keep it cool. Many other phones such as the iPhone 7 don't have this feature. A cool processor means that your phone will last as whole lot more time.
Would you still buy a iPhone now?
