June 21, 2022

Pixel 6

The new Google Pixel 6 Pro has finally landed at Three and it doesn’t disappoint. Google is giving you a completely redesigned phone with something you’ve always dreamt of…all-day battery. That’s right all-day battery is a big ask but they’ve delivered so you can respond to work emails, respond to you ‘Summer vibes’ group chat, edit photos and stream your favourite shows without missing a beat. The Google Pixel 6 was designed for daily life and its Google Tensor processor makes it the smartest and fastest Pixel phone to date.

It’s up to 80% faster than the Pixel 5, but how does it compare to its predecessor the Pixel 6?

Pixel 6 vs Pixel 6 Pro – The Camera

The Pixel 6 features a 50MP main camera and a 12MP ultrawide camera. The only difference on the Pixel 6 Pro is that Google has added a third camera – a 48MP Telephoto with 4x optical zoom and 20x digital zoom. The Pixel 6 has up to 7x digital zoom making it the lesser of the two when it comes to zoom strengths.

The Pixel 6 Pro gains a point over the Pixel 6 as it pertains to sharp shooting and vivid videos especially in low light. Its powerful camera system and pro-like lenses are a photographers dream with a main sensor that captures 150% more light than any other Pixel ever. With the Pixel 6 Pro, you’ll find new features like Magic Eraser, which helps you remove unwanted parts of photos, and Face Unblur, which adds definition to faces that the camera didn’t quite capture.

Both phone cameras capture vibrant and detailed photos, but the Pixel 6 Pro is definitively a photo lovers dream and takes this round.

Pixel 6 vs Pixel 6 Pro – Battery Life

The Google Pixel 6 has a 4,614 mAh battery while the Pixel 6 Pro has a larger 5,003 mAh battery. Both phones boast 24-hour battery life and can last up to 48 hours when Extreme Battery Saver mode turned on.

What does this mean for your daily life? Simply put, it means more screen time, more streaming your latest Netflix obsession, or more time to capture and edit videos on the go if vlogging is your thing.

The Pixel 6 Pro’s adaptive battery is everything a battery should be. It learns your favourite apps, so it doesn’t waste power on the ones you never us.  By turning on Extreme Battery Saver, it keeps your essential apps running and turns off other apps to save on power. The battery lasts up to 48 hours with Extreme Battery Saver, so there’s always power when you need it. And with the compatible 30W charger, the Pixel 6 models both charge up to 50% charge in 30 minutes.

Battery wise it’s a draw, both phones have fast charging and long lasting batteries.

Pixel 6 vs Pixel 6 Pro – The Display

The Pixel 6 models both have Gorilla Glass Victus on the front and back, as well as a camera bar on the back.

The models differ in a few areas, the most obvious being their size. The Pixel 6 boasts a 6.4-inch OLED display while the Pro has an impressive 6.7-inch. Another feature that is different between the two are their cameras. The Pixel 6 has two rear cameras while the Pro sports three.

The Pixel 6 has a 90Hz refresh rate which guarantees more responsive gaming and scrolling. And high brightness mode lets you watch and play in bright sunlight.​ The Pro on the other hand has a 120Hz refresh rate for smoother, more responsive performance.  Its display automatically adjusts to whatever you’re doing, which makes it battery efficient. And with high brightness mode, you can watch and play in bright sunlight.

The clear winner is the Pixel 6 Pro.
