Another Sleek Challenger in Smartphones Market

by Alicia Brown Application Developer

The Google Pixel 6 Pro is the firm's first genuine effort at a high-end gadget capable of competing with the greatest smartphones on the market, like the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, OnePlus 9 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Launched alongside the original – and far cheaper – Google Pixel 6, this new Pro edition is intended to be the company's pinnacle, featuring its new Tensor processor and other high-end internals, a fantastic camera configuration, and a slew of other enhancements.

The Pixel 6 Pro's greatest Android opponent is the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, which has some nifty camera upgrades (that 10x magnification, for example), but it costs more and delivers a more user-friendly experience. The iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max are excellent all-around devices, but they are more expensive, and if you're already invested in the Android ecosystem, it's probably not worth converting and purchasing all those applications again. Those searching for the greatest all-around Android experience can look no farther than the Pixel 6 Pro.

Releasing Date and Pricing of the Google Pixel 6 Pro

After more than a month of teasers and revelations from the business, the Google Pixel 6 Pro was formally released on October 19. The Pixel 6 Pro was scheduled to be released on October 28 in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. The Pixel 6 Pro starts at $899 / £849 / AU$1,299 for the 128GB storage option. Other storage options are available, but they are limited to specific colors and may vary depending on the market in which you purchase the phone.

The 256GB version costs $999 / £949 / AU$1,449, while the 512GB version costs $1,099 / AU$1,599. The 512GB variant is not yet available in the UK, and we do not anticipate the business to release it at a later date. That would be more pricey than the Google Pixel 6, which was announced alongside the Pro and starts at $599 / £599 / $999; however, it's considerably less expensive than other high-end flagship phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra or the iPhone 13 Pro Max, that charges more than $1,100 / £1500 / AU$1,800.

The Pixel 6 Pro is a reasonably inexpensive phone in comparison to other high-end devices, but it is still one of the most costly smartphones available. If your budget is limited, you may also want to search for another.

Blueprint

The Google Pixel 6 handsets stand out from the crowd, with a horizontal camera strip taking up a considerable chunk of their backs. It's the most notable aspect of the design, and it's an occasional treat that's sure to divide opinion. The strip protrudes from the back of the phone in some fashion, which may turn some people off – but it undoubtedly gives the cellphone a distinct appearance. It means your phone won't sit level on a desk, but rather at a little inclination, however, you won't get the rocking motion you experience with phones with camera hump solely on a single side of the device.

It's also IP68 water and dust-resistant, so it should be able to withstand the occasional splash, but we wouldn't recommend entirely immersing your phone for a lengthy amount of time. The USB-C connector is located on the handset's bottom edge, flanked on each side by the speakers. The power and volume buttons are located on the phone's right side. The Pixel 6 Pro comes in three color options: Sorta Sunny (yellow and gold), Cloudy White (white and grey), and Stormy Black (black and grey). While the 128GB variant is available in all three colors, the 256GB and 512GB models are only available in a few.

Display

The Pixel 6 Pro boasts a 6.7-inch QHD+ display that is sufficiently large and provides excellent picture quality — the resolution of 1440 x 3120 is a significant improvement over the Pixel 5 and its 1080 x 2340 screen from 2020. We thought it had one of the clearest screens we'd seen on a smartphone in 2021. Its 512 pixels per inch are uncommon on smartphones with QHD screens, and it's only been surpassed by devices like the Sony Xperia 1 III with its 4K screen. The screen has outstanding brightness levels, and we had no trouble seeing the phone's screen in direct sunlight. 

Cameras

Google's smartphones are based on the company's camera expertise, and the Pixel 6 Pro's camera system appears to be the greatest yet, with a 50MP wide camera, a 12MP ultra-wide camera, and a 48MP telephoto lens. The real kicker is that Google has produced another great camera system here, and we've found it to be significantly more adaptable than on prior Pixel phones, with much more settings to experiment with.

The camera you'll probably use the most is the 50MP primary shooter with an f/1.9 aperture and 1.2m pixels. We discovered that it was capable of taking high-resolution photographs with high resolution and true-to-life colors. Night Sight, which allows you to take decent images in low-light conditions, is back. This is comparable to the Google Pixel 5's ability to brighten gloomy areas, but you must maintain the camera motionless for it to operate properly.

The telephoto cam has an optical zoom range of up to 4x and generated fine photographs of faraway subjects during testing. Again, keeping the phone motionless is required for optimal outcomes, but this is true of all telephoto modes.

Specifications and performance

The Pixel 6 Pro is the firm's first smartphone to use its silicon rather than Qualcomm's Snapdragon chipsets. Google Tensor is the name of the chipset used here. Tensor is based on the idea that a CPU conceived and produced by Google can be better suited to interact with the company's phone hardware and software for a better overall experience - and the good news is that the chip is quite powerful, if not the most powerful on the market. In Geekbench 5, the Pixel 6 Pro had an average multi-core score of 2760. That is indeed further behind the 3440 of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, the 3685 of the OnePlus 9 Pro, and the 4549 of the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

In the United Kingdom, the Pixel 6 Pro is only available in 128GB or 256GB configurations (a 512GB model is available elsewhere, such as the US and Australia). Given that this is the company's first serious try at a leading phone, with enough high-end specifications elsewhere, we would have loved to see the choice of 512GB or perhaps 1TB of storage made more readily accessible for real power users.

There's also no microSD support, which isn't surprising but would have helped with storage if you want to transfer your data smartly from a previous cellular device to Pixel 6 Pro then you can freely use the result-oriented app  Smart Transfer available on all major stores.

The Pixel 6 Pro is 5G-ready, meaning you'll be able to connect to next-generation networks with this smartphone, depending on coverage and your plan. If you reside in the United States, things are a little trickier, but everywhere else in the globe, any version of the Pixel 6 Pro will be available right now. If you live in the United States, your 5G coverage will be determined by where you purchase your device. For example, you can only purchase a handset with Sub-6 5G technology from Google's shop.

Technology

On this device, Android 12 is ready and waiting for you, and it looks wonderful. If you want to see the latest version of Google's software, this is the place to go. When compared to prior Pixel smartphones, this improvement is immediately evident. The Pixel 6 Pro's stunning display is an ideal showcase for Android 12's new features. One of the phone's notable features is the Material You function. The substance you can customize your smartphone background, and the colors of that backdrop will be used to emphasize the settings on your phone.

Life of the Battery

The Pixel 6 Pro's battery life is one of its weak areas, but it isn't so bad that it should put you off buying it. We noticed that the battery will survive for a whole day of average use, but you may struggle to get to the end of the day if you use your phone more often. For example, when we tried to charge the phone at the end of the day, we noticed it only had around 10% of its battery left. This isn't the sort of phone that will last you several days unless you're a heavy user.

Nutshell

The Pixel 6 Pro is Google's greatest phone yet, with every feature you'd expect in a top 2021 gadget. The Pixel 6 Pro has solid performance, some amazing software upgrades, a distinctive appearance, and a superb camera system and it does so while still outperforming its competitors on price. The 6.7-inch base 128GB model runs $899 (£849, AU$1,299), which is much cheaper than the $999 asking price for the 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro and much less than the $1,099 list price for the bigger 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max.

While the Pixel 5 was best viewed as a mid range phone with some higher-end touches, the Pixel 6 Pro is all premium. There's a lot to appreciate about this phone, from its glass and metal appearance to its high-resolution display and great triple camera. Then there's the Tensor processor, a CPU designed just for the phone by Google, which delivers enough power for all of your everyday demands, improved security features, 5G connection, and a clean Android 12 interface. The battery life is adequate – probably above average – but not exceptional, with the iPhone 13 Pro Max outperforming it.
