techcafenc

Finally, Google launched its flagship smartphones Pixel 7 & pixel Pro yesterday. So here in this article, we are going to compare google the latest beast with iPhone 14 pro which launched in the past month.

So let’s start….

Google introduced the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro yesterday. The new phones offer small but significant improvements over the past generation and are currently available for pre-order.  The iPhone 14 Pro is another excellent flagship that is priced similarly to the Pixel 7 Pro.


Apple released the iPhone 14 Pro last month. And it has many comparable features and characteristics, making it a worthy Pixel 7 Pro competitor. So, in this post, we’ll take a careful look at Apple’s and Google’s premium flagships to see which one deserves a spot in your wallet.

Display

The Pixel 7 Pro has a 6.7-inch curved LTPO QHD+ OLED display. This time, the display curvature is somehow less than that of the Pixel 6 Pro, which should make it easier to handle and reduce accidental touches. In comparison, the iPhone 14 Pro has a relatively smaller 6.1-inch flat OLED display.
Both smartphones have display panels with high contrast ratios, adaptive refresh rates of 120Hz, and high resolution. An aspect where the iPhone 14 Pro outperforms the Pixel 7 Pro is peak brightness. The iPhone 14 Pro’s display can reach 2,000 nits, making it easier to view outside. Although the Pixel 7 Pro’s display is superior to the Pixel 6 Pro’s, it may be difficult to view in direct sunlight because it has a lower peak brightness of 1,500 nits.
So the panel can now run as low as 1Hz, Apple has finally enabled an always-on feature to the iPhone 14 Pro. Google Pixel smartphones, also including the Pixel 7 Pro, on the other hand, have had this capability for quite some time. For many, the display size is a deciding factor for those looking for a large screen, go for the Pixel 7 Pro but if it’s the display quality you’re looking for, both of these smartphones will not disappoint!

Design

Starting with the design, our Pixel 7 Pro vs. iPhone 14 Pro analysis will show that Google’s flagship smartphone has a comparable shell to the previous version. The large camera lens going horizontally across the device’s glass back frame remains the same. The Pixel 7 Pro’s only significant distinction from the previous version is the absence of a dual-tone design.

The glass back is one color, with contrasting anodized metal utilized for the frame and surrounding the camera lenses. The Pixel 7 Pro comes in three colors: obsidian, snow, and hazel. The new design aligns the color of the camera bumper with the device’s frame, creating a more seamless, toned-down style that looks amazing in my opinion.

The back of the iPhone 14 Pro is also comparable to that of the previous-generation iPhone 13 Pro. The square-edge design is still the same as iPhone 13 pro. The smartphone retains the same stainless-steel frame and ceramic shield protections on both the front and back. However, there are some new colors and a 48MP main sensor among the upgrades (more on that later).

When we shift our eyes to the front side, then, everything changes. The iPhone 14 Pro is the company’s very first smartphone without a notch, with a ‘Dynamic Island’ on top. Users engage with their iPhone 14 Pro in novel ways by using the new pill-shaped island.

Camera

Looking back, the Pixel 7 Pro has the same triple-camera system as its predecessor. This indicates a Quad Bayer 50 MP wide, a Quad Bayer 48 MP telephoto, and a unique 12 MP ultra-wide with autofocus are included. Even though the hardware is still the same, the actual improvements come from the upgraded Tensor G2 CPU. Google claims that the new Pixel 7 Pro has significantly improved image and video processing over the previous version.
Macro Focusing, Real Color, Photo Unblur, and Movie Motion Blur are among the new software features. Macro Focus will utilize the ultra-wide camera to capture clear images of objects closer to the lens, and Real Tone which now works in low light will aid in the depiction of skin colors. Movie Motion Blur for videos has capabilities comparable to Apple’s iPhone Cinematic Mode.

Moving on to the iPhone 14 Pro’s camera, it’s the first iPhone to have a 48 MP main sensor. It also has super ultra-wide and telephoto lenses than the previous version. Thanks to the upgraded sensors and the new computational photography engine, Apple promises a multifold improvement in low-light and day-to-day camera performance.

While we’re on the subject of catching up, Google has finally implemented Face Unlock to the Pixel 7 Pro, due to the new 10.8MP sensor and Tensor G2 chipset. Apple has also improved the front camera on the iPhone 14 Pro, which now includes focusing, which the Pixel 7 Pro’s selfie camera lacks.

Processor

Apple’s new A16 Bionic chipset powers the latest iPhone 14 Pro. Apple promises up to 40% greater CPU performance than its Android opponents, and the GPU has also increased since last time. The A16 Bionic also includes a new 16-core Neural Engine capable of doing almost 17 trillion calculations per second, resulting in improved AI and machine learning capabilities.

The Pixel 7 Pro, on the other hand, is equipped with the latest Tensor G2 chipset. It has the same Structured as the previous iteration, which means it has two Cortex-X1 Prime cores running at 2.85GHz, two Cortex-A79 cores running at 2.35GHz, and four Cortex-A55 cores running at 1.8GHz. A Mali G710 MP07 GPU handles graphics.
However, Google has never been known for its sheer CPU power. Pixel devices beat competitors thanks to ML and AI technologies. Google also claims that the latest Tensor G2 chipset adds even more useful and customized features to images, videos, calls, security, and natural language processing.

In everyday use, there isn’t much of a difference in performance between the iPhone 14 Pro and the Google Pixel 7 Pro, and both phones can handle any work you throw at them.

Battery

The Pixel 7 Pro has the same 5,000 mAh battery pack as the Pixel 6 Pro from last year. Although the figure matches the battery on the Pixel 6 Pro, we predict the gadget to have longer battery life due to Tensor G2’s greater efficiency. There’s also Pixel’s Ultra Battery Saver mode, which can extend the Pixel 7 Pro’s battery life to 72 hours.

On the other side, iPhone 14 has 3200mAH.  Though we expect the iPhone 14 Pro’s battery experience to be greater than the iPhone 13 Pro’s, our early impressions of the gadget haven’t been positive in terms of battery consumption.

When it comes to charging speeds, the Pixel 7 Pro has a charging speed of 23W. The iPhone 14 Pro has (about) the same charging speeds as the iPhone 14, and both devices may charge up to 50% in about 30 minutes when using the certified chargers (which are, sadly, still sold separately).

It’s also worth noting that while both phones support wireless charging, only the Pixel 7 Pro supports reverse wireless charging. You can connect your Qi-compatible accessory, such as Google’s Pixel Buds Pro, by just placing it on the Pixel 7 Pro’s back. The iPhone 14 Pro does not have this capability.

So at the end please tell me by leaving a comment, which phone you are going to buy or want to buy after reading this comparison.
