If you prioritize an exceptional camera, the Google Pixel 7 Pro offers slightly better overall camera quality, favoring those interested in photography and videography. However, if longer battery life is more important to you, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra has the edge, potentially lasting longer on a single charge. The Pixel 7 Pro has a slightly smaller screen which could be easier to handle, while the S22 Ultra's larger display might be better for multimedia consumption. Both phones operate on Android and have high refresh rate screens for smooth visuals. The S22 Ultra also comes with a built-in stylus, adding productivity and creative capabilities, which the Pixel lacks. Consider these tradeoffs in relation to the price difference when making your decision. Give Feedback

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."

Android Authority

Eric Zeman | February 2023
"The Galaxy S22 Ultra is a bit of a “greatest hits” compilation of Samsung’s best ideas from former devices. Moreover, it packs much of the same productivity-enabling software as previous Note devices coupled with the power of the S Pen while keeping the total package reasonable in terms of cost. The phone has more features, more cameras, and more software to put to use than many competing phones. It’s a hardcore device that nearly has it 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.
