A premium technical sheet
The Google Pixel 6 Pro is not marked as XL, but its dimensions are certainly extra large with a screen diagonal of 6.7 inches. Fortunately, the plate with the curved edges on the sides is just beautiful to look at, especially with the OLED magnifying everything. We also appreciate the presence of LTPO technology to adjust the display frequency from 10 to 120 Hz depending on usage, thus saving energy on a daily basis. The 5,003 mAh battery will then easily hold the smartphone for 2 days, with 4 to 5 hours of screen time per day. It is very comfortable and above all very practical not to have to charge your laptop every night. The only problem is the 30W fast charge which isn’t fast at all as it takes a full hour to go from 0 to 50% anyway.
With its new Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, this is the first time the Mountain View firm has decided not to integrate a Qualcomm Snapdragon chip into any of its smartphones. This year, the Californian company has indeed preferred to manage software and hardware simultaneously by developing its own chip: the Google Tensor. This processor emphasizes artificial intelligence to provide new features with Google services. For example, we can mention direct translation in the offline mode, or the new possibilities allowed on the camera application. Raw performance, on the other hand, is lower than the benchmarks compared to an iPhone 13 Pro equipped with the A15 chip or a Xiaomi Mi 11 equipped with the Snapdragon 888, but that’s not why the Pixel 6 Pro (with its 12 GB of RAM ) has performance issues. The proof: it runs Fortnite in epic graphics quality at 100% 3D resolution with no lags.
He doesn’t miss a shot
The Pixel 6 Pro marks a major change in design compared to older models, and this is immediately noticeable when you see this large band that crosses the smartphone from left to right, at the top. Inside is the camera, which houses three sensors: a 50-megapixel wide-angle lens, a 12-megapixel (114°) ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 48-megapixel telephoto lens, which gives you a very good quality x4 optical zoom.
Anyway, it all fits in perfectly with Google’s many algorithms – and laser autofocus, spectral flicker sensors, not to mention optical image stabilization – to deliver excellent quality in all conditions, and above all many possibilities such as erasing people on the background or blurring of moving faces . In addition, the selfie camera is 11.1 megapixels to offer 4K movies at 30 frames per second – which is quite rare for a front sensor. In short, you can enjoy taking photos with this smartphone.
