Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. What do the experts think?

Devices from the new Pixel 6 line have finally fallen into the hands of foreign journalists and bloggers, and we, as usual, studied. their reviews and chose the most important thing!

Display and sound

  The first model has a 6.4-inch display with a 1080p resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. The Pixel 6 Pro, in turn, has a 6.7-inch display with the exact Full HD resolution. but its refresh rate can vary from 10 Hz to 120 Hz depending on what you are doing.

And according to the author of Engadget Sherlynn Lowe. the display of Google smartphones is as smooth as the screens of competitors. 

“Currently, most flagship smartphones are equippe with OLED displays, which generally provide excellent picture quality. 

Hardware and software

Games on the Google Pixel 6 ran flawlessly too. But playing games like Asphalt 9, League of Legends, Wild Rift, and Civilization 6 for an hour. I did not notice that the smartphone lagged behind competing devices running on the top-end Snapdragon processor. it showed comparable performance and comparable battery consumption.

In addition, I notice that the Pixel 6 Pro started to heat up quite quickly. But I continued to use it. Because it did not get hot up to very high temperatures at which the smartphone would be uncomfortable to use. “

9to5Google usually does not use synthetic benchmarks to measure smartphone performance because they do not reflect user experience. Still, in this case, they help demonstrate how close Tensor is in its version to its direct competitors. Especially those manufactured by Qualcomm. 

“In Geekbench 5, the Pixel 6 Pro scored 1007 points. In the single-core test and 2,765 points in the multi-core test. The single-core test result was one of the highest in the Geekbench rating. The Pixel 6 Pro beat the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra based on the Exynos 2100 by about 50 points. It was 10 points behind the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra based on the Snapdragon 888.

 Launching the Pixel 6 Pro 

“Before launching the Pixel 6 Pro based on the Tensor chip. My biggest fear was that third-party applications would not work correctly on it. But my fears were not confirmed, and I found only a couple of problems in their work. an unexplained failure of the Geekbench computational test and a failure when entering system. Most likely. This is due to the not yet very correct operation of Android 12 “.

In addition, Ben noted that Tensor is one of the few processors with a Samsung 5123 modem. Little is known about this modem, but Shun had no problems. with Google Fi or 4G or 5G connectivity, particularly in the city. Winston-Salem in North Carolina.

Speech recognition on smartphones

 the fastest speech recognition on smartphones. The New York Times columnist was mainly pleased with this feature, or. its ability to instantly translate videos in one language and show subtitles in another.

Google Tensor works with Android 12 to improve many standard features, especially noticeable in applications with voice functions. The recording app can even translate discussions into German and Japanese in real-time.

The GBoard voice dialing feature has undergone a significant overhaul. GBoard, Recorder, Translation, and other applications learn your preferences, track. We just touched the microphone icon and said, “Hi! I’m on RePlay with Tim. Come”. The Pixel 6 automatically removed punctuation marks and pronounced the panel title correctly.

Camera

The Pixel 6 has a 50MP primary camera and a 12MP 114-degree wide-angle camera. while the Pixel 6 Pro has a 48MP telephoto lens with 4x optical zoom in addition to the above lenses.

In addition, the Pro model has an 11.1MP front camera that is capable of 4K video recording. In contrast, the Pixel 6 only has an 8MP front camera. with Pixel sensors having larger pixel sizes, allowing them to capture more light. Sherlyn Lowe, the author of Engadget, tested the cameras of the new products. Compared them with the cameras of the iPhone 13 Pro, and wrote the following: 

Pixel 6 Pro shoots on par

“The Pixel 6 Pro shoots on par with the iPhone 13 Pro, and the comparison here comes down to personal preference. Both smartphones produce bright and colorful images. However, Apple’s smartphone produces richer images with a yellow-green tint, while the Pixel 6 Pro photos look more neutral. The iPhone actively combats out-light fringing and displays rosier skin tones than the Pixel, blurring a lot in low light. 

This is disappointing, by the way, especially considering. That the Pixel 6 features Google Real Tone technology – part of the Image Equity program. Which is based on research and feedback from photographers and people of color. and allows for more accurate exposure when shooting people with different skin tones. 

Portrait mode has mixed results compared to the iPhone 13 Pro. According to a columnist for The New York Times. The Pixel likes to render a more astonishing picture, while the iPhone is more aesthetically pleasing 

According to Sterling, the new camera features of the Pixel 6 are comparable to the astrophotography mode in previous Google smartphones – they are helpful only in exceptional situations in which most people rarely find themselves. 

“The new features and modes in the Pixel 6 are similar to astrophotography — they are only useful in certain situations that most people rarely find themselves in. Face Unblur and Magic Eraser are the only tools that are quite effective, for all their flaws, and really make a big impact on your shots. “

Steve Winckelmann from PC Mag confirms her words, as some camera functions are not working well yet.

Battery

   During the test, which consists of the smartphone playing a video until the device runs out of battery. the Pixel 6 lasted 20 hours and 30 minutes, and the Pixel 6 Pro – 17 hours and 13 minutes.

However, in daily use, only the Pixel 6 Pro lasted longer than one day. Nevertheless, both devices made it to the list of the most durable smartphones in terms of battery life. According to the editorial staff of Engadget. 

Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro?

“At first glance, the choice between the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro is somewhat tricky, but this time, the critical factor is essentially the same – the price. In the past, Google phones were available in regular and XL versions, different in size. However, the Pixel 6 is not much smaller than the Pixel 6 Pro, which is somewhat disappointing for anyone with palms that are not the largest. Additional features – if you want a sizeable first-class flagship, Engadget recommends choosing the Pixel 6 Pro.

“The Google Pixel 6 looks like an impressive mid-range smartphone. The performance is top-notch, the battery life is incredible, and its cameras are likely to outperform the competition. We have not noticed any major issues that are not software related. Once the final software is released, we’ll put the Pixel 6 through our usual series of performance tests. Stay tuned for our full review, but for now we think. The combination of performance and price will appeal to many. “

Big Geek opinion

  Pixel 6 Pro is sure to find its consumers. Still, not everyone likes the iPhone. Not so many exciting smartphones have been released on Android lately. Which, with all their advantages, remain in the usual form factor, without turning into clamshells on the way to the counter. Even fewer smartphones are coming out with pure Android, loved by many for its minimalistic design and excellent optimization.
