For performance, the Pixel 6 Pro is equipped with Google's Tensor processor and 12GB of RAM, ensuring smooth operation. It boasts a high 120Hz refresh rate display for fluid visuals. However, users requiring a 3.5mm headphone jack or expandable storage through an SD card slot will need to look elsewhere, as the Pixel 6 Pro lacks these features. It supports 5G connectivity, boasts stereo speakers, NFC, the latest Wi-Fi 6e, and both wireless and reverse wireless charging capabilities. Battery life is average, and the phone includes useful features like IP dust and water resistance, face unlock, and an under-display fingerprint sensor.

James Peckham | August 2022
"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."
