The iPhone 13 Pro and the pixel 6 Pro are currently two of the best phones in the market. The return of Google to the mobile market after years of research and development resulted in the Google Pixel 6 Pro review of its new model showing a generational leap from the earlier Pixel in terms of design, hardware, tensor chip, camera, and software. When it comes to the Google Pixel vs iPhone features, we will see which one is better and best for you.
Price and value
The iPhone 13 Pro is priced at $999 for a 128 GB model and 6 GB RAM. One can upgrade it to 256GB up to the new 1TB option. For 256 GB, one has to pay $100 extra and $200 for 512 GBD and 1TB. The maximum price for this iPhone comes to $1499.
The Pixel 6 Pro is priced at $899 for its 128 GB model and 12GB RAM. One can increase it to 256 GB and 512 GB models by shelling out $999 and $1099 extra, respectively. The Pixel gives a $100 advantage. It is better to go for the 256 GB model if one takes videos and photos regularly. The iPhone has better longevity with six years of software support than Pixel’s five years. However, if a lower price is a factor, then Google Pixel 6 Pro is the best buy.
The iPhone 13 features have an instantly recognizable square-off look. The Pixel 6 Pro has a visor bar camera on the rear and is combined with a two-tone finish. The size of the iPhone 13 Profits well in one’s hand and pocket.
The Pixel 6 Pro, with its full-width camera, makes it one of the first phones in recent time that sits nicely face down or up on the desk. It is, however, slippery, and without a case, it is a concern because of its size.
Both the phones have IP68 dust and water resistance and similar screen protection. The Pixel 6 vs iPhone 13 size sees that Pixel 6 Pro is larger compared to iPhone 13 Pro and weighs 0.2 ounces more than the iPhone.
Design – Pixel 6 vs iPhone 13 mini
The Pixel 6 has a 6.7-inch (3120×1440 pixel) LTPO OLED display and has a smooth display at a 120Hz refresh rate. The iPhone 13 Pro has a smaller (2532×1170 pixel) 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display with the same refresh rate at 120 Hz.
The Pixel 6 has a sharper display at 512 pixels per inch compared to 460 pixels per iPhone. Though there is not much difference, if the display size is a factor, then Pixel stands out
Google is giving Apple a competition with its Tensor chip. Though it has some advantages over Qualcomm chips, Apple still stays ahead with its raw power. The phone’s performance is excellent, and the multiple tabs, P-I-P videos, and games all fit in smoothly. However, on the Geek bench 5 overall performance test iPhone 13 Pro has a new record of 4718 while Pixel 6Pro comes at 2760. Pixel 6 Pro delivers 40 frames per second on the graphics front compared to iPhone13’s 70 frames per second. Both phones offer solid performance for executing smartphone tasks, but iPhone 13 Pro is ahead here.
Battery life and charging
The iPhone can put in 12 hours flat on a laptop much higher than the previous iPhone. If battery life is an issue, the iPhone 13 Pro is better. The charging speeds between the two remain the same. The Pixel can charge up to 51% in 30 minutes, whereas the iPhone gets to 53% in 30 minutes. Both require the 20 w or 30 w charger to be purchased separately and support wireless charging. The iPhone 13 Pro is a winner when it comes to battery life.
The Pixel 6 Pro has introduced a wide-angle primary 50MP Octa PD Quad Bayer, and the new telephoto features a 48MP resolution and a 4x optical zoom. The iPhone uses a low megapixel count for its camera sensor. The 12MP rear sensors on the iPhone 13 Pro includes a wide-angle that is one of the fastest, and the telephoto jumps to 3x optical. The verdict of the iPhone 13 Pro vs pixel 6 pro camera is a draw as each phone has its strengths.
The iPhone 13 Pro looks better in many aspects except the price. Still, if one is looking to keep the iPhone for 4-5 years, then it is better than the Pixel 6 Pro, whose performance starts to wear off simultaneously.
