By introducing the new Google Pixel 7 Pro this year, Google took things even more seriously than they did the previous year. While Big G released its first flagship last year after a long period without doing so, this year’s model is even better while maintaining a fairly competitive pricing when compared to flagships from other manufacturers, despite the fact that it is still a high-end phone. Is it really able to compete with the iPhone 14 Pro at that price, though?
Is the Apple flagship worth the extra money, or can you get a high-quality product for far less money by buying the Pixel? Hopefully, this comparison of the key features of the Google Pixel 7 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro can assist you in your search. With the exception of the size, display diagonal, and battery capacity, which are larger on the Pro Max model, the thoughts in this comparison also apply to the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Which style should you favour? The main factor is personal preference. For a number of reasons, I favour the iPhone 14 Pro personally. Due to the smaller display, it is first and foremost much more compact. Additionally, better materials were used in its construction, such as stainless steel for the frame and glass with Ceramic Shield protection for the back.
Even more water resistance is provided by the IP68 certification, which enables submersion up to a depth of 6 metres. Additionally, it has the infamous Dynamic Island, a feature that is incredibly futuristic but is not universally accepted. The Google Pixel 7 Pro, on the other hand, features a very innovative design that includes a horizontal bar made of recycled materials for the back cameras. It has an aluminium frame and a glass back, and thanks to the IP68 certification, you may submerge it for up to 30 minutes at a time in water up to 1.5 metres deep.
Given that both phones have excellent flagship-class displays, this will be a very difficult battle. In this case, I would make my decision based mostly on the display diagonal: the Google Pixel 7 Pro has a large 6.7-inch panel, whereas the iPhone 14 Pro has a small 6.1-inch panel, making the latter a superior display option if you’re looking for a new phone for productivity. They both have incredible displays, yet the iPhone 14 Pro should be significantly superior, in terms of everything else.
AMOLED panel with a Quad HD+ resolution of 1440 x 3120 pixels, LTPO technology, HDR10+ certification, an in-display fingerprint reader, and Gorilla Glass Victus protection are all features of the Pixel. The Super Retina XDR OLED display on the iPhone 14 Pro offers a Full HD+ resolution of 1179 x 2556 pixels, an adaptive refresh rate of 1 to 120 Hz, HDR10 certification, support for Dolby Vision, and Ceramic Shield security. Hardware sensors for Face ID, which uses 3D facial recognition, are present in Dynamic Island.
Features & Software
When combined with the incredible iOS operating system optimization, the hardware of the iPhone 14 Pro is more convincing. It is powered by the Apple A16 Bionic, which has a hexa-core architecture and a 4-nanometer manufacturing technology. It has two Blizzard performance cores that can reach a maximum frequency of 3.46 GHz, four Sawtooth energy cores that can reach a maximum frequency of 2.02 GHz, and a 5-core custom GPU. 6 GB of RAM and up to 1 TB of internal storage are included with the SoC.
The Google Tensor G2 mobile platform powers the Google Pixel 7 Pro, which ships with Android 13 out of the box. It is a chipset made using a 5 nm manufacturing process and includes a Mali G710 MC10, four Cortex A55 processors running at 1.8 GHz, two Cortex X1 CPUs with a maximum frequency of 2.85 GHz, and two Cortex A78 processors with a maximum frequency of 2.35 GHz. There are 12 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of UFS 3.1 native storage in addition to the chipset.
The Google Pixel 7 Pro is the best photography phone ever, according to DxOMark experts. It boasts three cameras on the back: a 12 MP ultrawide sensor, a 48 MP telephoto camera with OIS and 5x optical zoom, and a 50 MP primary sensor with OIS and laser autofocus. The 48 MP main camera on the iPhone 14 Pro is combined with two 12 MP sensors for zoom and ultrawide pictures, so while it may not be the finest camera ever, it is still among the top spots of the ranking.
The iPhone 14 Pro Max has a larger battery than the Google Pixel 7 Pro, so if you want an Apple gadget with a comparable battery life, choose the Pro Max.
Prices for the iPhone 14 Pro in Europe start at €1300 or $1300 (market-specific prices may vary), while the Google Pixel 7 Pro is at €899 or $899. Which would you choose?
