Like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, but you’re not sure of whether if its worth all that money? Should you listen to your friends and purchase the OnePlus 5 instead? Deciding which phone to buy is not always the easiest of tasks, but Google wants to help you decide faster.
Based on a report coming out of the Android Police, it appears that Google is gearing up to launch a new tool for Search that allows folks to compare phones with a simple search. The feature is currently rolling out to select users on mobile and desktop and will probably become more widely available in the upcoming weeks.
To start comparing phones, type in something like: “Pixel 2 XL vs LG V30” or “HTC U11 vs OnePlus 5”. For the time being, Google only allows you two compare two phone models, not three or more.
Your search will immediately show the two devices side by side with additional information including Price, Color and Storage Capacity displayed underneath in two separate columns. For more information, tap the blue arrow below.
Sure the specifications and information aren’t as in-depth you’d find in reviews, but the new feature provides a quick and easy way to see how two phone models stack up against one another. On mobile, there’s also the option to highlight the differences, which is also very handy.
