If you prioritize high-quality photos and videos, the Google Pixel 6 will serve you better due to its superior camera performance. In contrast, if you're looking for longer battery life and a larger screen size at a lower price point, the Samsung Galaxy A13 could be the right choice for you. Both phones operate on Android, and they both offer 5G connectivity, but the Google Pixel 6 has additional premium features such as wireless charging and a glass back, whereas the Samsung Galaxy A13 has a plastic back and no wireless charging capability. Keep in mind that the Pixel 6 is the costlier option, which should be considered when making your decision. Give Feedback

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."

"Should you buy it? Yes. I like this phone a lot more than I expected to. Performance is great for the price, battery life is really strong, and compared to other phones in this price range, its cameras aren’t bad at all."

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.

About Samsung

Samsung is one of the most recognizable names in the smartphone industry, standing as the undisputed best-selling brand of Android smartphones in the United States for many years now. Samsung is known for offering a variety of smartphones in all available price points, as well as for implementing cutting-edge technology and innovative features in their flagship devices, ones that often shape the market going forward. The company offers its own unique spin on Android, called One UI, which focuses on offering a multitude of features and is heavily customizable, according to user preference.
