If you prioritize a better camera, especially for photography, the Google Pixel 6 Pro has a very capable telephoto lens with significant zoom capabilities which might appeal to you, though the iPhone 13 Pro also has a solid camera system. On the other hand, if you prefer longer battery life, the Pixel 6 Pro has a larger battery capacity, which could provide longer usage between charges, but keep in mind that actual battery life can vary based on usage patterns. If screen size matters to you, the Pixel has a larger display, which could be better for media consumption, but if you prefer a more compact phone, the iPhone 13 Pro is smaller and may be easier to handle. The operating systems are different, with the iPhone running iOS and the Pixel running Android, which could influence your choice based on your preference for software ecosystem and interface. Regarding pricing, while the iPhone 13 Pro is slightly more expensive, it's important to consider which features you value most for the cost. Give Feedback

Android Authority

Dhruv Bhutani | October 2021
"The basic foundation of the phone is rock solid and essentials like UI navigation, apps, security, and privacy features are polished to a sheen. The camera works consistently well and takes some of the best pictures you can get out of a phone. The phone further embellishes it with performance that won’t have you reaching for a replacement for years, and the battery life is hands-down amongst the best you can get on a flagship. If you’ve been eyeing an iPhone, the iPhone 13 Pro is as good as it gets."

"The Google Pixel 6 Pro has one of the best screens you’ll find on a smartphone, and you’ll get a bright and bold picture no matter what you’re doing. That’s a big deal for many, and for some it may be reason enough to buy this phone. Its main sensor is fantastic, the telephoto is strong and there are new exciting software features too."

About Apple

The tech giant called Apple is synonymous with the most popular smartphone in the world: the iPhone. Known for their build quality and aesthetics, as well as for their excellent integration between hardware and software, iPhones have defined the smartphone industry ever since their conception and they continue to do so by setting new industry standards. Apple's own operating system, called iOS, is known for its simplicity and ease of use, and the company tends to complement it well by creating devices with some of the most powerful processing hardware available in the mobile world. The iPhone is also known for its robust ecosystem of accessories, as it facilitates a very seamless experience when interacting with other Apple products, more so than most of its competitors.

About Google

Google can be considered a relatively new player in the smartphone industry, joining as late as 2016 with their phone, the Google Pixel. Since then, the Pixel lineup has undergone many changes, but it has always been characterized by a focus on photography and clean software, by providing a pure Android experience. By virtue of Google being the creator of the Android operating system, Pixels are known for receiving timely software updates and for being supported with updates for a long time. Additionally, over the past few generations of devices, Google started designing their own processors. This allowed for the implementation of unique software features that are not present in any other phone, such as automatic call screening and unique voice transcribing capabilities.
