Apple iPhone 14 Pro vs. Google Pixel 6 comparisons for mobile devices

Recently, we compared the ‘Pro’ model of Google’s flagship series to the ‘Max’ version of the new iPhone. This time, we’ll contrast their brothers, the Apple iPhone 14 Pro and Google Pixel 6. Other than the battery, display, and overall footprint, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are nearly identical. The ordinary and “Pro” Pixel 6 variants differ slightly more from one another, though.

Compared to the iPhone 14 Pro, the Pixel 6 is significantly less expensive. So, before we begin, bear that in mind. We’re comparing them because these are excellent choices for iOS and Android users, which is the reason we’re doing this in the first place. We’ll start by going over their specifications, and then we’ll look at their looks, screens, performance, battery life, camera quality, and audio output.

The stainless steel body of the iPhone 14 Pro is protected on the back by an unbranded Gorilla Glass panel. The Pixel 6 sports a Gorilla Glass 6 back and an aluminum frame. Additionally, the two phones have very different looks. In comparison to the iPhone 14 Pro, the Pixel 6 is more rounded and rather square-like.

Advertisement The iPhone 14 Pro is completely flat on the front and back sides, as well as all other sides (sides). The Pixel 6’s sides are most clearly not flat, and its rear has a tiny slope toward the edges. Depending on your preferences, the in-hand feel is very diverse. It’s important to keep in mind that the iPhone 14 Pro does cut into your hand a little more than the iPhone 13 Pro did, but only slightly more so.

Since the iPhone 14 Pro has a noticeably smaller display, it is shorter, narrower, and thinner than the standard iPhone. However, it is only one gram lighter than the Pixel 6. For its size, the iPhone 14 Pro is actually fairly heavy. These two phones’ overall appearances are completely different, and that statement applies to pretty much every aspect of both. The display of the iPhone 14 Pro features a pill-shaped notch, and the bezels are all the same size. The Pixel 6 is centered, has a significantly smaller cutout, and a hole punch. Despite being relatively thin, its bezels are not all the same.

You’ll see significant variations even when you flip them around. A camera island can be seen in the top-left area of the iPhone 14 Pro. There are three cameras set up there in an arrangement similar to the iPhone, along with a ToF 3D camera. It is also simple to identify the camera visor on the rear of the Pixel 6. From one side of the phone to the other, that visor swings around. It is both longer and more slimmer than what the iPhone 14 Pro has to offer. Despite the stark differences between the two smartphones, both have a luxury feel in the hand. Naturally, it all depends on your preferences.

Advertisement Google Pixel 6 vs. Apple iPhone 14 Pro: Display Compared to the Pixel 6, the iPhone 14 Pro’s display is much smaller. It has a 6.1-inch LTPO Super Retina XDR OLED display with a resolution of 2556 x 1179. This display is flat and 120 Hz, and it supports Dolby Vision and HDR10. In particular circumstances, such as direct sunshine, the brightness reaches a maximum of 2,000 nits, which is extremely bright. This display has a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and is shielded by scratch-resistant ceramic glass.

On the other hand, the Pixel 6 has a 6.4-inch fullHD (2400 x 1080) AMOLED panel with a refresh rate of 90Hz. This panel does support HDR10 content, and the aspect ratio of the display is 20:9. By the way, the Pixel 6’s display is flat and is shielded by Gorilla Glass Victus.

Advertisement On paper, the display of the iPhone 14 Pro does have a slight advantage. Both are fantastic in person, but we would still favor the iPhone’s panel. In addition to offering a greater refresh rate, if that’s what you’re concerned about, it does brighten up when you need it to. However, the vast majority of individuals will find both displays to be more than satisfactory. Both have excellent viewing angles, vibrant colors, and responsiveness. The majority of people won’t really notice the difference between the two, even though one is theoretically superior than the other, unless they spend a lot of time outside in the sun.

Google Pixel 6 vs. Apple iPhone 14 Pro: Performance These two phones also have quite different performance-related specifications. Apple’s brand-new A16 Bionic CPU, 6GB of RAM, and NVMe storage are all included with the iPhone 14 Pro. The Google Tensor chip, 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and UFS 3.1 flash storage are all present in the Pixel 6. Technically, everything is on Google’s side, but Apple’s chip is more powerful. However, they both perform superbly.

With the exception of the battery life, which will be covered later, Google was able to eliminate almost all of the issues that had plagued the Pixel 6 since its release. Both of them excel at routine jobs and even video games. They can easily run virtually any game from their own app shops. On both phones, everything is fairly responsive, and we have no real serious problems at all.

Advertisement Google Pixel 6 vs. Apple iPhone 14 Pro: Battery The battery life, ah. At least as of the time this article was written, that is one area where the iPhone 14 Pro does have an advantage. Since the Android 13 update, the battery life of the Pixel 6 has been pretty strange. Let’s get the specifications out of the way first, and we’ll talk more about it afterwards. The Pixel 6 has a 4,614mAh battery, compared to the 3,200mAh battery found in the iPhone 14 Pro. However, keep in mind that the two operating systems handle battery life very differently, so that distinction is not really significant.

Though not as good as its predecessor, the iPhone 14 Pro has exceptionally decent battery life. If you don’t play video games, you should be able to use the gadget for more than 6.5-7 hours. Do keep in mind that battery life differs greatly from person to person and discussing exact figures is not the greatest idea. So, be ready for different results than what you expect. However, the battery life is decent.

The Pixel 6 is a unique case. Basically, the phone had fantastic battery life prior to the Android 13 update. However, as long as you use WiFi for the majority of the day, the battery life is still phenomenal. You may even exceed 8 hours of screen time in such circumstances. You will only receive half that amount if you use mobile data for the most of the day. There is undoubtedly a problem.

Advertisement Neither phone offers exceptionally quick charging when it comes to charging. When it comes to cable charging, the Pixel 6’s maximum is 21W compared to the iPhone 14 Pro’s maximum of 23W. Additionally, the iPhone 14 Pro supports 7.5W Qi wireless charging and 15W MagSafe wireless charging. Both reverse wireless charging and 21W wireless charging are supported by the Pixel 6.

Google Pixel 6 vs. Apple iPhone 14 Pro: Cameras In some circumstances, personal preference can have a big impact on camera quality. Although the cameras on both of these phones are really good, we still favor the Pixel 6 for still photos and the iPhone 14 Pro for videos. Soon, but first, let’s talk hardware. A 48-megapixel primary camera and two 12-megapixel secondary cameras are included with the iPhone 14 Pro (ultrawide and telephoto cameras). On the back is a ToF 3D sensor as well. On the other hand, the Pixel 6 sports a 12-megapixel ultrawide camera in addition to a 50-megapixel main camera.

Advertisement So how do they contrast in terms of images? The fact that Google’s camera algorithms are incredible is not exactly a secret. The Pixel 6 continues the company’s tradition of producing some of the greatest camera smartphones of the year. Although not technically new, it has a new camera sensor for the Pixel series. No matter the situation, this phone’s camera is incredibly dependable and difficult to botch up a shot. Even though it doesn’t look fully realistic, it does an incredible job with HDR, and the pictures look fantastic. It also performs admirably in dimly lit environments.

Highlights do cause the iPhone 14 Pro some issues. Like its predecessor, it still has a propensity to blow out the highlights. The photographs do look more realistic, and aside from that, it does a terrific job. It does occasionally have a tendency to oversharpen specific areas of an image. Apple will probably release an update to solve that. In low light, neither phone manages reflections very well, though.

In terms of video quality, the iPhone 14 Pro excels. That has been the case for a long time, and the iPhone 14 Pro keeps up the pattern. The video clip appears to be incredibly stable and free of any kind of artifacts. Simply put, it is well-optimized, and that is it. It looks well in low light as well.

Audio advertisement While neither smartphone has an audio port, they do each have a set of stereo speakers. Bluetooth 5.3 is supported by the iPhone 14 Pro, whereas Bluetooth 5.2 is supported by the Pixel 6. Having said that, their stereo speakers produce outstanding sound. It has every feature a smartphone could possibly need, is clear and unmuffled, and even has some bass. Although the speakers on the iPhone 14 Pro are marginally louder, they are otherwise rather identical.

Any Bluetooth or the appropriate ports on either of these phones must be used to make a wired headphone connection to either of these phones. Unfortunately, the Pixel 6 has a Type-C port whereas the iPhone 14 Pro still has a Lightning port.
