The Verge

Allison Johnson | October 2022
"I have no problem recommending the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro to those brave enough to look outside of the Apple / Samsung duopoly. They’re slightly better versions of the very good phones Google released last year. The Pixel 7 is a heck of a deal for someone who wants a flagship Android phone without paying flagship prices."
