If you value camera performance highly and are willing to pay more, the Google Pixel 7 Pro offers superior still photo and video quality, as well as additional features such as a telephoto camera with a higher focal length and an ultrawide camera with a broader field of view. However, if budget is a major concern, the Google Pixel 6 is more affordable and still provides a high-quality camera experience. Both offer similar battery life, but the Pixel 7 Pro has a larger and sharper screen with a higher refresh rate, which could enhance your viewing experience. Keep in mind that both phones operate on Android and share some core features, such as 5G support and wireless charging, but the more expensive Pixel 7 Pro includes a newer processor and more RAM, which can lead to better performance.

Android Police

Taylor Kerns | April 2022
"It punches above its weight in nearly every way: performance is great, build quality is very good, and the cameras positively rip. this is a big phone, which is a bit of a shock after the compact Pixel 4 and Pixel 5. But it’s a very good big phone at a very good price."

Ars Technica

Ron Amadeo | October 2022
"The Pixel 7 Pro is good! The software is clean and quickly updated. The camera takes great pictures. The performance is a buttery smooth 120 fps. Those are all the reasons to buy it over anything else, especially its Android competition, where it sweeps every one of those categories."

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.
