Would You Buy a Google Pixel 7 Pro or an iPhone 14 Pro?

For those who prefer Google’s Android operating system to Apple’s iOS, the Google Pixel 7 Pro is Google’s smartphone equivalent to the Apple iPhone 14 Pro. Google’s new flagship smartphone range, like Apple’s iterative design approach to updating its smartphones, maintains consistency with its previous models in terms of overall appearance and features but offers internal upgrades to persuade customers to buy, upgrade, or switch. Let’s compare what each company offers since they are both vying for your hard-earned money and promising the best smartphone experience.

Design, Display, and Durability 

The iPhone 14 Pro is a flat piece of gorgeous, squared-off stainless steel and glass renowned for being understated, sophisticated, and simple. For durability, the screen’s Ceramic Shield covering material works with an IP68 water-resistance rating to offer excellent protection. Even though it is 71mm wide and 7.8mm thick and has a 6.1-inch display, the iPhone 14 Pro model feels balanced and usable with one hand. If used without a case, it can feel slippery. 

With the Pixel 7 Pro, Google offers a svelte, elegant design with a glass back and matte aluminum frame supported by a small, horizontal camera bar. The visual effect is stunning, with its tiny bezels and slightly rounded corners in your choice of Obsidian, Snow, or Hazel colors. The 6.7-inch display’s scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass Victus construction. There isn’t a grating notch, Dynamic Island, or anything resembling the built-in interface of the iPhone. There is only a discrete hole-punch camera on the Pixel.

With a screen resolution of 1440 x 3120 pixels, or 512 pixels per inch, the Pixel 7 Pro outperforms the iPhone 14 Pro, which has a resolution of 2556 x 1179 pixels, or 460 ppi. However, the overall impact of that disparity is accounted for by the larger screen size of the Pixel’s 6.7-inch glass slab compared to the iPhone’s smaller 6.1-inch screen. If only looking at the numbers, the Pixel 7 Pro has the advantage. The IP68 rating for dust and water resistance is a benefit for both the Pixel 7 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro in terms of durability.

Performance, Battery Life, and Charging 

The larger battery of the Google Pixel 7 Pro outperforms its rival in terms of pure specs. But regarding battery life, statistics do not always provide the whole picture. Apple iOS has been designed to maximize battery efficiency, so it lasts as long between charges as any other premium phone, including the Pixel 7 Pro.

The Pixel’s 5,000mAh battery may only have a slight advantage over its main rival in terms of charging, and even that is questionable. Compared to the iPhone’s 20W fast charging, the Pixel offers 30W fast charging. Additionally, the Pixel has an Extreme Battery Saver mode that extends battery life past the standard 24 hours to up to 72 hours. According to the battery test results, the iPhone 14 Pro charges 50% even with a 20W charging block in about 30 minutes, precisely the same timeframe Google claims for the Pixel 7 Pro.

Regarding performance, the Google Pixel 7 Pro needs to catch up. The phone gets hotter and warms up your hand and handset as processing power is put under more stress. The iPhone 14 Pro, on the other hand, was rated as having the best smartphone experience in the review, making it the contest winner.


Many people choose a smartphone based on its camera features, so Apple and Google take great pride in having the best cameras available.

A new 48-megapixel main camera with an f/1.78 aperture is available on Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro. It also features a 12MP telephoto camera with an f/2.8 aperture and a 12 MP ultrawide camera with an f/2.2 aperture. The system uses Deep Fusion, Smart HDR 4, and Apple’s new Photonic Engine for image processing. The iPhone 14 Pro also supports text copy/paste, the ProRAW image format, instant face recognition, macro photography, and night mode portraits. The new 12MP, f/1.9 aperture selfie camera on the iPhone 14 Pro has autofocus. In addition to the already outstanding photo features of previous iPhone models, which included 4K and ProRes video, HDR, macro, slow motion video recording, and stabilized time-lapse, these camera improvements are even better.

The large 50MP main sensor and 1.85 aperture of the Pixel 7 Pro camera, which focuses on detail and does justice to low-light shots, also produced outstanding results for the camera’s photo and video quality. Additionally, it has a 48MP (telephoto) lens with an f/3.5 aperture, a 48MP ultrawide lens with an aperture of f/2.2, and a 10.8MP front camera with an aperture of f/2.2. Additionally, there is a Super Res Zoom of up to 30x and a 5x optical zoom, a powerful zoom not available on the iPhone. The Cinematic Blur feature aims to elevate your videos to the big screen. Night Sight, Portrait mode, and daytime photos all retain accurate skin tones thanks to Real Tone. Unwanted people and objects can be eliminated from your photos using Magic Eraser.

Given the number of features both sets of cameras share, most people might not notice a significant difference in the quality of their photos or videos.

Software and Updates 

Another year, another phone, and yet another update to the iOS and Android operating systems. Apple’s most recent iOS 16, which runs on the Apple A16 Bionic processor and adds many new features like customizable lock screens, more iMessage text options, and haptic keyboard feedback, is paired with the iPhone 14 range. The revolutionary Dynamic Island feature for the high-end iPhone 14 Pro transforms the despised top-notch, fundamentally altering how users interact with the device. For the new phone, Apple guarantees five years of software updates.

Google’s new Pixel 7 Pro comes pre-installed with Android 13, which includes new app permissions, a Now Playing lock screen widget, and more customization options for Material You. With new drag-and-drop functionality for some apps, an updated taskbar, a more user-friendly split-screen, and updated Google apps, Android 13 is also getting better for larger devices. The Google Tensor G2 processor, designed especially for the Pixel, runs Android and includes 12GB of RAM, machine learning, and speech recognition from Google. More speed, efficiency, security, and updates are promised for four years.

Final Thoughts 

The new Google Pixel 7 Pro has been defeated in this comparison by Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro. Large, lovely, and artistic, the Pixel’s design has many fine qualities, including an excellent screen resolution, water and dust resistance, a stylish, high-end camera set, and a larger screen size. Some people might find Apple’s new iPhone 14 Pro design a little staid, but its fans adore its stylish appearance, drama-free operating system, and capable camera.

Look at your preferences and value in a phone before making your final decision on which phone is a suitable choice for you.
