OK, the Pixel 7 Pro will have a slightly smaller 6.7" diagonal vs the 6.8" on the Galaxy S22 Ultra.Needless to say, both phones are water- and dust-resistant. The Galaxy S22 Ultra has an IP68 rating, and the Pixel 7 Pro will probably have the same. Perks like stereo speakers, wireless charging, and the complete lack of a headphone jack are also present. But the Galaxy S22 Ultra does have the coveted S Pen for anyone who prefers annotating or drawing on their phone. There's a good reason why the S Pen has stuck around for a decade — it is useful and it feels awesome.

Design and Display Quality We are OLED to see you In terms of screens, we expect to see two quality OLED panels duking it out.2 We may earn a commission if you make a purchase from the links on this page.1 We may earn a commission if you make a purchase from the links on this page.parts include screens, batteries, rear cameras and charging ports.

Samsung has been on top of its display game for years now and the Dynamic AMOLED of the Galaxy S22 Ultra looks just fantastic. It also helps that there are a couple of calibrations to pick from, so you can really fine-tune your experience, whether you want punchy colors or subdued and realistic hues. As recently as last month, for instance, Amazon was still charging a whopping $899 and up for the latter 6. The Pixels' OLED screens are also pretty good, so it's going to be a close call here. The Pixel 6 Pro features a Sony image sensor that can generate depth maps needed for secure facial recognition There had been hope that Pixel 6 Pro users might receive a facial recognition feature with the release of the June Quarterly Feature drop. Plus, both phones will have 120 Hz refresh rate and QHD resolution, so it's a tough one. But then the jumbo-sized Tensor powerhouse was reduced to a slightly more palatable starting price of $799 pretty much nationwide in a completely unprecedented deal that predictably went away relatively quickly. OK, the Pixel 7 Pro will have a slightly smaller 6. At the outset, iFixit is selling the parts in the US, UK, Canada, Australia and other European countries where Google offers Pixels.

7" diagonal vs the 6. Google Pixel 6 Pro 5G, 128GB, Unlocked, Cloudy White $300 off (33%) Buy at Amazon If you hurry, you can get a Cloudy White-coated Pixel 6 Pro for an incredible $300 under its usual aforementioned price of $899 with 128 gigs of internal storage space. The Pixel 6 Pro can add a secure facial recognition system via a software update So is that the end for Pixel 6 Pro users? With the Pixel 7 series probably less than four months away, is there even any reason for those with the phone to hope that the smartphone gods will smile upon them and deliver a facial recognition feature? According to  9to5Google , it seems that while the Face unlock ship has sailed for the Pixel 6 Pro, Google is reportedly still working on the biometric feature.8" on the Galaxy S22 Ultra. In terms of looks, we have distinct designs on both phones. With the other color options and the 256GB storage configuration all stuck (more or less) at their regular price at the time of this writing, we really don't expect this amazing deal to last more than a few hours. Curved screens on the front, yes, but wildly different back sides. Currently, though, the concerns that has involve the Pixel 6 Pro battery draining too rapidly because of Face unlock, and the less than stellar accuracy apparently seen during testing. The Pixel 7 Pro will repeat the RoboCop visor look for its camera module, Samsung is doing its corner camera glued to the frame of the device. After all, the.

Both designs have proponents and haters. We at the office are also divided, so it's safe to say that this one is strictly up to taste. If you own one of the latter two models, this should get you agitated (I do and it does!). What's the same is the fact that both phones have matte glass backs — fantastic for keeping fingerprints away, not so great for being slippery against dry hands. Though, the Pixel's camera bar has proven itself helpful on the Pixel 6 series by allowing us to comfortably rest our fingers against it and grip the device better. Needless to say, both phones are water- and dust-resistant. The June update supposedly improved the capabilities of the Pixel 6 series' fingerprint sensor and by re-entering your fingerprints from scratch, you might be more likely to take advantage of any improvement made by Google.

The Galaxy S22 Ultra has an IP68 rating, and the Pixel 7 Pro will probably have the same. Perks like stereo speakers, wireless charging, and the complete lack of a headphone jack are also present. But the Galaxy S22 Ultra does have the coveted S Pen for anyone who prefers annotating or drawing on their phone. There's a good reason why the S Pen has stuck around for a decade — it is useful and it feels awesome. When it comes to colors, you do have a wider choice if you go for the S22 Ultra, but only if you buy from Samsung.

com. Retailers get black, white, burgundy, and green, while Samsung's web shop offers sky blue, red, and graphite. The Pixel 7 Pro colors  are a bit more basic, but still have a stylish gleam to them. They are black, white, and a gray with a gold frame (a.k.

a. Obsidian, Snow, and Hazel). In terms of security, we have an under-screen fingerprint scanner on both phones. Samsung uses its ultrasonic fingerprint scanners, which the company says are more accurate and harder to fool. However, they are sometimes slow to react and plenty of users online are reporting minor annoyances with them.

The Pixels use optical scanners, which should be faster than Samsung's tech, but the Pixel 6 line didn't really get it right. Plenty of mis-reads or slow reaction times were reported here as well. We will see how the Pixel 7 Pro does. Performance and Software Wait, so are Exynos and Tensor brothers? Google uses a custom Tensor chip for its Pixel phones since 2021. In the Pixel 7 line, we expect to see a new-and-improved Tensor 2.

Fun fact — the chip may be built to Google's spec, but it's made by Samsung. In the meantime, Samsung's Galaxy S22 Ultra is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (in the USA and South Korea) or Samsung's own Exynos 2200 chip (international markets). What does this mean in terms of performance? Obviously, the new Tensor is not out yet, so we can't know for sure. However, it last year's Pixel 6 is anything to go by, know this — the Google Tensor chips are not made for raw performance. They focus on having cores dedicated for computational photography and AI functionality.

In other words, Google is taking the"Work smart, not hard" approach. In benchmarks, the 2021 Tensor was lagging behind its top-tier competitors. In real life, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro were pretty solid phones. We sort of expect a repeat of the same story once the Pixel 7 Pro and the Tensor 2 come out. Camera King, meet the king OK, so Samsung is pretty good with its cameras, right? The Galaxy S22 Ultra is basically a champ — it has four cameras, two of which are dedicated to optical zoom (a 3x portrait camera and a 10x zoom camera), and tons of software post-processing that allows for 100x digital zooming that looks much better than it should, really.

The main sensor is a massive 108 MP one, the ultra-wide camera has a 12 MP one, and the zoom cameras are both 10 MP. But Google's Pixel is absolutely not to be underestimated. Last year, Google updated the sensors it uses, so the main camera now has a 50 MP sensor. And it was trading blow for blow with Samsung's S22 Ultra, no problem. Check them out both dominating this camera comparison .

We expect the Pixel 7 Pro to have a 12 MP ultra-wide and a 48 MP zoom camera next to that 50 MP main shooter. And we expect the Pixel 7 Pro to absolutely bring the camera chops of its predecessor, only refined. Audio Quality and Haptics In terms of haptic response — both the Pixels and the Galaxies have precise and responsive, clicky vibration motors. The Pixel's feels awesome, the Galaxy's is pretty good (but not as awesome). In terms of audio, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is very good and allows further tuning via an on-board app.

The Pixel 6 Pro was a bit disappointing — not bad, but not amazing. We will see how the Pixel 7 Pro presents itself. Battery Life and Charging A day for a day We don't have exact specs on the Pixel 7 Pro yet, but if we were up for a bet, we'd guess it'd have a battery at about 5,000 mAh. That's what the Pixel 6 Pro had and it's generally what most mainstream smartphone makers manage to cram into their devices. The Galaxy S22 Ultra also has a 5,000 mAh battery.

It's no battery champion, but it can comfortably last you a day. We'd wager the Pixel 7 Pro will give us the same result. As for charging, the Galaxy supports up to 45 W Fast Charge. The Pixel 6 Pro peaked at 30 W and we are unsure if Google is willing to push that particular envelope at that time. In any case, both of these phones will come without a charger in the box.

If you buy the official one for the respective device, you should be able to get a top-up in less than 2 hours on both. Wirelessly, the Galaxy S22 Ultra can get charged by 15 W pucks, whereas the Pixel 7 Pro should be able to do at least 23 W, because that's what its predecessor was capable of.
