Apple iPhone 14 Pro vs. Google Pixel 6 Pro ...

If you look at a paper on the differences between the Apple iPhone 14 Pro and the Google Pixel 6 Pro, then you''re fine, and you''ll be able to select between two excellent smartphones, one of which will be beneficial for years to come.

If you already know whether or not you want an Android handset or an iOS-toting iPhone, then you may save yourself a read. Again, if you knew the answer to it, then you might be on this page. Perhaps, then, we may assist.

Although we have yet to review the iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max, we may be able to make a fair comparison based on their specs. We mention the iPhone 14 Pro Max, by the way, as it matches the 14 Pro in every way bar screen size and battery life. So we would stick to a straight iPhone 14 Pro vs Pixel comparison, given that even the base 128GB iPhone Pro Max costs a staggering $1099/1199.

It is important to keep an eye on that the new Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will be released on 6 October, so it might be worth waiting to see what Google says before triggering it.

With that being out of the way, you can dig in.

The Google Pixel 6 Pro was first released on 28 October 2021, while the newer iPhone 14 Pro will be released on September 16. Prices for all model variants are below:

Model128GB Price256GB Price512GB Price1TB Price
Apple iPhone 14 Pro$999/1099$1099/1209$1299/1429$1499/1649
Google Pixel 6 Pro$899/849$999/949$1099 (N/A in UK)N/A

The Pixel 6 Pro is generally the cheaper option regardless of which model you choose. Besides the fact that Google''s flagship was launched last year, Apples average premium RRP is up to 150 more than previous iPhone 13 equivalents, with inflation and the weaker pound being highlighted by many as the reason.

In practically every way, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pixel 6 Pro are opposites. It''s in one corner, thanks to its impressive metal banding, flat screen, and, for the most part, the impressive rear triple-lens camera setup.

The Pixel 6 Pros Dual Front Color, With a Leaner Shape and a Rather Long rounded Corner, is very rectangular in shape. The curved display gives the screen a more organic feel. Its rear camera bump is pretty unique, jutting out in a strip along the back, separating the Pixel 6 Pros dual rear colours.

Both handsets are great, and the winner is due to personal preference.

Both displays are OLED affairs, which means smooth colours and stunningly rich, deep blacks. The Pixel 6 Pro is quite impressive, although it boasts a staggering 2000 nits of max brightness versus a paltry 800. This means you may have a much easier time with the 14 Pro in bright sunlight.

On the resolution front, the Pixel 6 Pro leaps ahead of its iPhone competitor, with a more pixel-packed 1440 x 3120 resolution, compared to the 16 Pros 1179 x 2556. In the near future, however, there is no significant difference.

When it comes to main physical screen differences, it is hard to avoid comparing the massive pill-shaped cut-out in the 14 Pros screen, plus the much larger pin-hole option in the Pixel 6 Pros screen. Apple''s version replaces the notch, and houses both the front-facing selfie cam, as well as all the equipment required for Face ID. It''s called the Dynamic Island, (yes, really), which is a label that makes sense when you consider the fact that it can contextually host different information

Both screens are capable of receiving up to 120Hz refresh rates, resulting in super-smooth scrolling and gaming. Both versions are variable, with the 6 Pro offering 10-120Hz depending on the application, while the 14 Pro supports 1-120Hz. This means less drain on the battery.

Both handsets have impressive screens that deliver on clarity and features, and you will not be disappointed with them either way.

Both handsets have a triple rear camera setup, and the entire specs are below:

The iPhone 14 Pros camera setup has had a relatively impressive tweak in the form of a main 48MP camera (versus the iPhone 13 Pros 12MP offering) but this is coupled with a 65 percent larger sensor that promises even more detail, especially in low-light situations.

The triple-camera configuration of a wide (48MP), ultrawide (12MP) and telephoto (12MP) lens has been restored, although there are also two additional zoom options, including 0.5x, 1x, 2x, and 3x. The TrueDepth front selfie camera has also improved light sensitivity, allowing enhanced dimmer performance.

Both Googles rivals are enthused on the photography front, with an impressive triple camera setup of its own, consisting of a 50MP main wide camera, along with a 48MP telephoto, and a 12MP ultrawide. Both phones use processing techniques to ensure that your shots come out looking their best at the touch of the shutter button.

In our analysis, we were impressed with the Pixel 6 Pros camera, which appeared in almost every situation, including zoom, low-light photography, and more. We have yet to review the iPhone 14 Pro, but we are optimistic about it, especially given Apple''s strength in smartphone photography.

Given that the Apple A15 Bionic process was more powerful than Google''s Tensor CPU, it''s no surprise to see that the new A16 Bionic processor in the iPhone 14 Pro strengthens the gap between the Tensor silicon found inside the year-old 6 Pro. While the iPhone 14 Pro, on the other hand, has 6GB RAM and the 6 Pros, 12GB, although although the RAM department has never maintained that any iPhone has been missing.

Both phones can be snapped up in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB versions, despite the Pixel 6 Pro''s 512GB version being not available in the United Kingdom. The iPhone 14 Pro is also featuring a cavernous 1TB model, making it ideal for media hoarders.

Although Apple''s newer, faster processor, neither handset will disappoint you in the power industry, with multitasking and the most recent games proving no problem. Although local storage is better than cloud solutions, it''s hard to beat the iPhones 1TB capacity, though you''ll pay a pretty penny for that storage space.

When it comes to battery capacity, Apple have kept their tradition of sluggish silence when it comes to actual capacity figures, but inevitable breakups will soon enough reveal the details. At the time of writing, MacRumors has obtained information from a database suggesting that the iPhone 14 Pro battery now has a 3200mAh capacity, compared to the last years 3095mAh one.

Given how well Apple has improved its software and hardware in the past, the Pixel 6 Pro also has a larger 5000mAh battery. Nevertheless, Apple''s claims of the longest iPhone battery lifespan to date will be true.

The Android vs iOS concept has remained a trend for more than a decade. Like the ever-ending Windows/Mac OS debate, there''s no right answer, and it only depends on your personal preferences and what you''d prefer. Both Apple and Googles OS have advanced to a point where they offer exceptional capabilities.

The iOS 16 release offers some new features in the form of handy lockscreen widgets as well as a clever use of the iPhone 14 Pros Dynamic Island screen notch, which can also include contextual controls and information depending on what you are currently doing.

The topic of discussing iOS vs Android is a simple concept, but you may prefer Android if you prefer to tinker and set things up to your liking, but you will not be disappointed with either, unless you are a good power user.

For more information on iOS 16 and Android 13, please see which ones take your fancy. There may be something wrong with a change to keep things feeling fresh, but it shouldnt take too long to get used to one over the other.

As we looked at the iPhone 14 Pro ourselves, we were reluctant to give a definitive verdict. In today''s day and age, there is no real right answer, so either one handset will be better for some individuals, depending on their preferences.

These are both excellent handsets, with excellent cameras and performance, as well as feature-rich operating systems and a sleek design. However, the lower cost of the Pixel 6 Pro is difficult to overlook, and it might even fall even further when the Pixel 7 Pro is announced on 6 October.
