Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro Review: Price, Specs, Features

Google is reinventing its smartphones with the new Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. Equipped with the very first Tensor processor designed by the brand, they are fast, intelligent, secure, and constantly adapt to your use. You got it right, these Pixel 6 and 6 Pro come with really very convincing arguments.

The design and quality of the screen

With this new range, Google is completely changing the design of its smartphones

The front of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro is occupied by a screen with very thin borders and revealing a selfie camera – very discreet – housed in a bubble centered on its upper part. It is an LTPO screen, a technology that reconciles high image frequency and controlled energy consumption.

The Pixel 6 Pro’s 6.7-inch QHD + display can intelligently adjust to your usage, from 10Hz to 120Hz refresh rate for remarkable picture smoothness and consistently top performance. Video games will be at the party. The Pixel 6 offers a 6.4-inch Full HD + screen with a refresh rate of up to 90 Hz.

On the back, the new Pixels incorporate photo sensors along a prominent wide strip spanning the entire width of the phone. This gives a very original design, especially since different color combinations are available. Note that both smartphones are waterproof and meet IP68 certification.pixel 6

Photos, still a strong point of Google smartphones

The Pixel 6 Pro’s photo module includes a professional-grade 48 MPixel telephoto lens with 4x optical zoom (and up to 20x with its high-resolution zoom), as well as the main sensor that captures 150% more light than the previous model, for more vivid and clearer photos. It is completed by a wide angle of 50 MPixels unusual for the brand and by an ultra-wide angle of 12 MPixels.

The Night Vision mode, which has done so much for the reputation of Google smartphones, is still in the game. When you know the recognized photo performance of the previous generation, there is no doubt that this new Pixel 6 Pro will settle at the top of the hierarchy of the best cameras on the market.

The selfie capture is entrusted to an ultra wide angle (94 °) of 11 MPixels which will be perfect for group shots. The video is also at the party. The great feature is that you can even take a selfie 4k video.

The Pixel 6 has an 8 MPixel face sensor. The main sensor is made up of the same 50 MPixels wide angle as its eldest, here accompanied by an ultra wide angle of 12 MPixels. On the program, high-resolution zoom up to 7x, night vision mode, etc.

For those who love perfect photos, Google offers the Magic Eraser, a tool that instantly removes unwanted background elements from your photos, available on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Like Photoshop in a smartphone!

Google Tensor processor and Titan M2 ™ security chip

Compared to the excellent Pixel 5, it brings more speed, security, and intelligence. First, because, as we have seen above, the processor adapts to your daily use. Overpowering, it makes the Pixel 6 Pro the fastest smartphone ever released by Google ( + 80% compared to the Pixel 5!)

Secondly, because the new Titan M2 security chip helps protect your privacy data and helps you keep control of your information. The Pixel incorporates additional layers of security that protect you against hackers.

Not to mention that with automatic updates for up to five years, the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro will continue to perform well for many years to come.

To support the processing of this comfortable power, Google has endowed the Pixel 6 with 8 GB of RAM, and 12 GB for the Pixel 6 Pro 

On the storage side, they are equipped with 128 GB of internal space.

A battery that won’t let you down

The adaptive battery of the Google Pixels provides a full day of battery life, even with 5G. This battery (5003 mAh on the Pixel 6 Pro, 4614 mAh on the Pixel 6) favors your favorite applications and limits the consumption of those you use less. So when you activate the ultra battery saver, it keeps your essential applications running and deactivates others to considerably reduce consumption and give you up to 48 hours of battery life.

Thanks to the 30W fast-charging compatible charger, your Pixel will charge up to 50% in 30 minutes. Google Pixel wireless charging is also faster and more powerful on the new Pixel Stand.

While your Pixel is charging, you can use it as a smart display. With a single tap, you can easily view your best Google Photos shots, control your connected home, and more.Google Pixel 6

Sustainable development, a reality at Google

Google seeks to conduct its activities in an environmentally sustainable perspective. The Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro are thus designed with recycled aluminum to reduce their carbon footprint.

With its five years of security updates and regular updates, Google is also working to ensure that each Pixel is always more efficient over time, a way of doing things that goes against and prolongs planned obsolescence.

The most multilingual in the world

Understand and communicate in multiple languages with Instant Translation. This unique Google functionality makes it possible to communicate in real time in other languages. It translates your chats automatically, securely, and in complete confidentiality. The Google Pixel 6 and the Google 6 Pro translate your conversations in real time. Just say “Hey Google, be my interpreter” and you’re good to go.

Watch your videos, listen to podcasts, all with translated subtitles without having to install an application or Internet access!

And as if that were not enough, the two Google smartphones are available at an already very competitive price. The Pixel 6 (128 GB) starts at $599 while the Pixel 6 Pro (128GB) starts at $899. You can get the best Pixel 6 Pro deal at the Google Store.
