iPhone 14 Pro vs. Google Pixel 7 Pro: The Pro Phone Showdown

  • Apple and Google both announced their new smartphone lineup in 2022, featuring the iPhone 14 Pro and Pixel 7 Pro, among other models.
  • Both Google Pixel 7 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro comes packed with powerful hardware and advanced software features.
  • Being Google’s most premium smartphone to date, Pixel 7 Pro has a lot of pressure to beat Apple’s latest flagship phone.

Google announced Pixel 7 Pro at Made By Google Launch Event in October 2022, while the iPhone 14 Pro was released at Apple’s Far Out Event in September 2022. Both phones are being marketed as the latest flagship devices, which means they’re the most advanced ones in the entire lineup. Be it software or hardware, both Apple and Google have tried to deliver extraordinary products.

Although Apple has been in the game for a while, Google is still somewhat new to the smartphone world.

Hardware and Design: Nearly Identical to Last Gen

As far as design is concerned, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pixel 7 Pro are pretty similar to their predecessors. It means if you hold a used Pixel 6 Pro or a used iPhone 13 Pro, you won’t see any major difference in terms of design.

The Pixel 7 Pro embraces the Pixel 6 Pro’s design language. The only difference is the horizontal camera visor bar that used to be made with glass, but the Pixel 7 Pro has an aluminum visor bar. Plus, the Pixel 7 Pro has a slightly reduced screen curvature compared to the Pixel 6 Pro.

On the other hand, the iPhone 14 Pro looks exactly like the iPhone 13 Pro. It has the same matte glass back, stainless steel body, and flat sides. The most noticeable change is on the front. Instead of the notch, the iPhone 14 Pro features Dynamic Island, which takes relatively less space than the notch.

Winner: Google Pixel 7 Pro

Internal Hardware: A16 Bionic vs. Tensor G2

The Apple iPhone 14 Pro packs the A16 Bionic chip, while the Pixel 7 Pro features the bespoke Google Tensor G2.

In terms of raw processing power, Apple’s A16 Bionic is more powerful than Google’s Tensor G2. It means if you carry out tasks that require processing power, like video trimming, the iPhone 14 Pro will perform relatively better than the Pixel 7 Pro. But the difference isn’t a deal breaker. Also, the Tensor G2’s machine learning makes up for its lack of horsepower. Google’s machine learning is possibly the most advanced in the world.

Winner: Apple iPhone 14 Pro

Cameras: Great Photography Across the Board

As far as cameras are concerned, both Google and Apple are well known for their remarkable camera features. The iPhone 14 Pro features a 48 MP main camera, while the Pixel 7 Pro comes with a 50 MP primary camera.

The iPhone 14 Pro also employs Apple’s latest Photonic Engine for image processing along with Smart HDR 4 and Deep Fusion. It also supports macro shooting, night mode portraits, cinematic mode, instant face recognition, and ProRAW image format. It also takes the lead in terms of video recording.

The Pixel 7 Pro has the upper hand in terms of zooming abilities. It can pull off the in-sensor crop 2x zoom like the iPhone 14 Pro. But the Pixel 7 Pro also features a 5x Periscope zoom lens that does another in-sensor crop. As a result, you get a near-lossless 10x zoom.s

Winner: Apple iPhone 14 Pro

Software and Performance: Android vs. iOS

Gone are the days when Apple’s operating system drastically differed from an Android OS. Nowadays, both Apple and Google phones have borrowed software features from each other, making the user experience much better.

The iPhone 14 Pro runs on iOS 16, while the Pixel 7 Pro runs on Android 13 by default. Compared to Android 13, iOS 16 brings significant changes, like a customizable lock screen, haptic keyboard feedback, and many new options for iMessage.

But if you’re buying an iPhone 14 Pro for iOS 16, you may want to run a quick comparison of the iPhone 14 vs. earlier iPhones. The iOS 16 is compatible with older iPhone models, as old as the iPhone 8 Plus.

Winner: Apple iPhone 14 Pro
