If a superior camera is important to you, the Google Pixel 8 Pro is known for its excellent photography capabilities, including features like Magic Eraser. On the other hand, if battery life is more crucial, the OnePlus 12 has a slightly larger battery capacity, which could translate to longer usage between charges. For those who prefer a larger screen and higher screen resolution, the OnePlus 12 offers a bigger and sharper display, which is particularly noticeable when watching videos or playing games. Additionally, the OnePlus 12 comes with more internal storage as standard, which means you can keep more apps, photos, and videos without needing external storage solutions. Both phones offer premium build quality with glass backs, OLED displays with high bright modes, similar refresh rates, and run on Android, but the OnePlus 12 has a slightly higher brightness peak, if outdoor visibility is a factor for you. Keep in mind, the Pixel has exclusive phone and camera features that are not available on other Android devices, while the OnePlus 12 includes a high performance fast charger in the box.

The Guardian

Samuel Gibbs | October 2023
"The screen, body, performance and battery life are all good. The Pixel has a distinctive look that elevates it from the many of the competition, too. It has a really great camera system, with an array of advanced AI-infused editing tools that blur the line between what’s real and what’s fake. But the biggest upgrade is in the full seven years of software support, bringing the Pixel up to par with Apple and outlasting all but the Fairphone 5 on the Android side."

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 OnePlus

OnePlus, established in 2013, is a smartphone brand that first became known for providing flagship-like devices, at a fraction of the cost compared to more expensive Android competitors. OnePlus focuses on creating smartphones with powerful hardware at reasonable prices. They also bring hardware features normally not seen in other Android phones sold in the US, such as their ultra-fast “Warp Charge” and the beloved “Alert Slider”.
