The Pixel 7 Pro is Google’s smartphone counterpart to the iPhone 14 Pro for those who prefer Apple’s Android OS to iOS. Like Apple’s iterative design approach to upgrading its smartphones, Google’s new flagship smartphone lineup remains consistent with its previous models in overall appearance and features but offers improvements under the hood to entice customers to buy, upgrade or switch. Both companies are vying for their hard-earned dollars and promise the best smartphone experience, so let’s see what they have to offer.

Design, width and durability
The iPhone 14 Pro from Apple is a flat piece of exquisite stainless steel and glass known for its simplicity, elegance, and simplicity. The The ceramic screen shield provides excellent protection and works in tandem with the IP68 water resistance rating for durability.
At 6.1 inches, the always-on iPhone 14 Pro model looks balanced and usable with one hand, even at 71mm wide and 7.8mm thick. It can feel slippery if used without a cap, but who does that anymore? It is available in black, silver, gold and dark purple.
With the Pixel 7 Pro, Google introduces a sleek, sophisticated exterior that features a matte aluminum frame and a glass back held by a modern, compact horizontal camera strap. With its slim edges and slightly rounded corners in a choice of obsidian, snow or hazel colors, the visual impact is stunning.
6.7-inch scratch-resistant screen made of Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. There is no annoying notch, Dynamic Island, or anything similar to the iPhone’s built-in interface. For the Pixel, there is only an unobtrusive punch-hole camera.
The Pixel 7 Pro has an iPhone screen resolution of 1440 x 3120 pixels or 512 pixels per inch, compared to the iPhone 14 Pro which has a resolution of 2556 x 1179 pixels at 460 pixels per inch. However, one can point out that the difference in screen size between the 6.7-inch Pixel glass panel and the iPhone’s smaller 6.1-inch screen is the overall effect of this contrast. Meticulously following the numbers gives the Pixel 7 Pro the edge. In terms of durability, the Pixel 7 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro both benefit from an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.
Winner: Google Pixel 7 Pro
Performance, battery life and charging
In terms of pure specs, with the Pixel 7 Pro with a capacity of 5,000 mAh versus the 3,200 mAh battery of the iPhone 14 Pro, the Google Pixel 7 Pro outshines its opponent. But, hold the phone. When it comes to battery life, the numbers simply don’t tell the whole story. With the iPhone, iOS is optimized by the processor to maximize battery conservation and consumption so that it’s rated and lasts like any other premium phone at every given point in time — the Pixel 7 Pro included.
The only advantage the Pixel’s 5,000mAh battery might have over its main competitor is the charging time interval – and even that is questionable. Pixel features 30W fast charging compared to 20W iPhone fast charging. Plus, the Pixel has an adaptive battery (it recognizes the apps you use most often), while the Extreme Battery Saver mode gives you 72 hours of battery life — up from the regular 24 hours. In testing we found that even with Apple’s 20W charging block, the battery charged to 50% in about 30 minutes, which is exactly the same time Google quotes the Pixel 7 Pro. We’ll reserve judgment when we can actually test the Pixel, so in the meantime, based on said specs and actual usage, we’re calling a tie.
Both Apple and Google are proud to have them The best smartphone cameras on the market, and considering that many people buy a smartphone based on the camera features, this is an important metric.
Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro features a new 48MP main camera with f/1.78 aperture. It also has a 12MP ultrawide camera with f/2.2 aperture and a 12MP telephoto camera with f/2.8 aperture. The device uses Apple’s new optical engine for image processing, along with Deep Fusion and Smart HDR 4. In addition, the iPhone 14 Pro supports Night Mode photos, macro photography, and the ProRAW image format. The iPhone 14 Pro also benefits from a new 12MP selfie camera with f/1.9 aperture with autofocus. These camera improvements come on top of the already excellent photo specs from previous iPhone models, including 4K video recording, ProRes, HDR, Macro, Slo-Mo, stable time-lapse recording, and more.
The Pixel 7 Pro’s camera and video quality also promise great results via a large 50MP main sensor with an ƒ/1.85 aperture that focuses on detail and does justice to low-light shots. It also has a 12MP ultrawide lens with f/2.2 aperture, 48MP (telephoto) with ƒ/3.5 aperture, and a 10.8MP front camera with f/2.2 aperture. There is also a 5x optical zoom and Super Res Zoom up to 30x. Cinematic Blur brings your videos to Hollywood. Real Tone technology preserves true skin tones in daytime shots as well as Night Sight and Portrait mode. Photo Unblur enhances photos that require focus. If your vision isn’t too hot, check out Pixel’s Guided Frame mode that helps people take better selfies with sound and touch.
Both sets of cameras have many similar features, and depending on the specifications, there may not be much difference in the photo or video results. For now, without pictures from the Pixel for comparison, we’ll give the iPhone’s well-known super camera the benefit of the doubt.
Winner: iPhone 14 Pro
Software and updates
Another year, another phone, another OS update for iPhone and Android smartphones. With the iPhone 14 range, Apple pairs the latest iOS 16, which adds a lot of new capabilities like customizable lock screens, additional options for iMessage texts, and keyboard haptic feedback, running on the Apple A16 Bionic processor. For the high-end iPhone 14 Pro (and Pro Max), the new Dynamic Island feature completely changes the way users interact with the phone by transforming the despised first class.
For Google, the new Pixel 7 Pro comes with Android 13, which features more customization for Material You, a Now Playing lock screen widget, new app permissions, and more. Android 13 also improves for larger devices with new drag and drop functionality for specific apps, an updated taskbar, a more intuitive split screen, and updated Google apps. Android runs on a Google Tensor G2 processor designed specifically for the Pixel with Google’s machine learning and speech recognition plus 12GB of RAM. It promises to deliver more speed, efficiency and security.
Apple announced two major new safety features: Emergency SOS via satellite, to be released in November, and vehicle accident detection. Both can save lives. With Emergency SOS via satellite, if you experience congestion, you can call for help via text message from obscure places where there is no cellular service. The software instructs you how to connect to the current satellites and will route SMS to emergency responders.
Automatic fault detection calls for emergency assistance if you have a car accident. Android users have had accident detection apps for years, but now, Apple has included the feature in the operating system.
Another special feature of Apple is the lack of a SIM card. iPhone 14 Pro only accepts an eSIM. Pixel accepts Dual SIM technology – either a single Nano SIM or a single SIM.
Google’s Pixel 7 is described as extremely secure and private, thanks to the Google Tensor G2 and its accompanying Titan M2 security chip. Pixel uses both Face Unlock and Fingerprint Unlock to allow access to your phone’s contents. However, Apple has long been known for its security credibility even though Face ID is now the preferred method to unlock iPhone.
We’re giving this round to Apple for its new emergency calling and automatic protection features.
Winner: iPhone 14 Pro
The iPhone 14 Pro comes with 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB storage. It’s available worldwide from a variety of sellers for $999, $1,099, $1,299, and $1,499, respectively.
The Google Pixel 7 Pro starts at $100 less than the iPhone at $899 for the 128GB model. It is also available in 256GB or 512GB storage. The tentative release date is October 13th.
Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro has emerged on top of this competition with the new Google Pixel 7 Pro, the most worthy contender. The Pixel design is big, beautiful and innovative, with many great qualities, including superior screen resolution, water and dust resistance, an attractive high-quality camera array, and of course a larger screen size. Apple’s new iPhone 14 Pro may seem a bit outdated to some observers in terms of style, yet its loyal fans appreciate its spare design, undramatic operating system, and professional-grade camera specs. We’re also giving a general nod to Apple due to its integration with the important security features of the iPhone 14 line. Who hasn’t gotten lost on a sunset stroll with no cell phone service? We all hope we never need to find faults, but having such life-saving features on hand will enhance the safety and well-being of all users and their loved ones.
