The example of a successful photo phone, the Pixel 6, has only a few minor flaws. The price is one, but it is now possible to enjoy Google’s flagship at RED at a discounted rate.
The Pixel 6, which arrived late last year, remains one of the best photo phones on the market today. Excellence, ensured by the configuration of the rear module, its fluidity, its autonomy and Android 12, which allowed it to win a 9/10 in our columns.
Minor flaws certainly prevented it from reaching the maximum score, such as a slightly high weight or a slightly slow load. On the other hand, if it is difficult to correct them, RED has made sure to eliminate the main black point: the price. Usually sold for 650 euros, the Pixel 6 drops to 549 euros from the operator. And it’s not the only smartphone to benefit from a discounted price at RED.
Have you already asked for the perfect photophone?
Do you want to take really good photos with your smartphone without spending more than 1,000 euros? The Pixel 6 easily solves this problem. It has a dual rear camera with a 50-megapixel wide-angle lens on one side and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle (114° viewing angle) lens on the other.
A duo with which real photographic feats are achieved. The shots are correctly exposed, detailed, both during the day and at night. The colors are very well transcribed, without overdoing them.
The Pixel 6 contrasts in design with the previous generation. The compact dimensions specific to the range disappear as the Pixel 6’s screen increases to 6.4 inches. An AMOLED panel that offers Full HD+ definition and a refresh rate of 90 Hz. Here too, the photo is not left out, because the 8 megapixel selfie camera that is located at the top of the screen, makes beautiful pictures.
Another novelty specific to this generation: the processor. Yes, this is the first year of Pixel to include a Google-manufactured processor, the Google Tensor. This chip speeds up the photo experience thanks to artificial intelligence. It comes with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. A configuration that can easily handle everyday use.
Especially since the Pixel 6 offers the best version of Android 12 thanks to the Pixel Experience interface. It is pleasing to the eye and offers very good ergonomics, using features such as the “a handwhich allows you to drag the top of the screen downwards in one movement.
