Google Pixel 6 x 6 Pro review: Design

 so the first and most obvious difference between the pixel 6 and the pixel 6 pro is the size of the bloody things the standard flagship smartphone is a 6.4 inches or certainly bigger than previous google flagship smartphones whereas the pixel 6 pro boosts that to a whopping 6.7 inches but despite that extra 0.3 of an inch here on the pro model you will notice there's not a massive size difference between them to be fair and that's mostly because the pixel 6 has slightly thicker bezels surrounding that display it's especially noticeable up top and down below and also that screen doesn't curve gently around the edges of the pixel 6 unlike on the pro model but the pixel 6 and the pro model sport a selfie cam orifice up top centrally position and they're both protected by gorilla glass victus up front as well which in my test is certainly very uh shatter resistant if you drop them on concrete tend to be absolutely all right although they just tend to scratch up a little bit easier than previous generations of gorilla glasses as well touchwood no scratches or scuffs so far to speak of either on the pixel 6 or the pixel 6 pro flip them around meanwhile and the google pixel 6 pro is protected by grille glass victus on that back end as well as the pixel 6's arse is gorilla glass six so not as drop resistant of course but should hopefully prove resistant to scratches and scuffs if you decide not to slap on a case there goes both the new pixel six smartphones that support the wide boy camera chassis that stretches the full width of that back end which is actually quite good because when you're resting the phone down on a desk or a table you're poking and pudding that surface it doesn't rock about the place and while the standard pixel 6 sports a tactile aluminium frame you've actually got more of a glossy vibe here on the pixel 6 pro for whatever reason so both pixel 4s are tough morphos with that gorilla glass plates and you've got ip68 water and dust resistance on both of them as well as you can rock them in the shower the bath whatever you fancy and strangely enough they both basically weigh the same as well the standard pixel 6 is 207 grams the pixel 6 pro is 210 so uh certainly both got a decent heft to them you certainly feel them when they are wedged in your trouser pocket if that's where you choose to keep them as for the sim situation where you can only slip a single sim card into both pixel six and the pixel 6 pro there's no space for two sims at once but you do have additional support for esim.

Google Pixel 6 x 6 Pro review: Software and features

 now when it comes to the software of course there's bugger all difference between the pixel 6 and the pixel 6 pro because they're both running the latest freshest android 12. it looks like traditional android but the aesthetics have just been tweaked to make it look even more gorgeous you've got some fantastic functionality in there and as i say it's the same setup basically on both the uh google pixel 6 and the pixel 6 pro dive into the settings you'll have the exact same options in here i really like the way you can change up the app icons as well so the color palette matches the wallpaper in the background that's just stunning and of course then the pull down toggles as well you've got fast access to the likes of google pay and you can fully customize this to add in all kinds of additional toggles google has been concentrating ah go away i've got to stop saying google has been concentrating on the security and privacy aspect of android 12 as well so for instance here in the fast toggles you can quickly deactivate mic and camera access for all of your apps as well if you just want to be completely left to your own devices and i really like the new security section here on the pixel smartphones as well which basically warns you about any issues you might want to check up on surfaces it's suggesting here that i turn on uh find my device just because i'm to lose my smartphone it can also tell me if i'm signed into my google account on any random devices that i haven't used in a while which is particularly handy if you have to review a lot of tech both pixel 6 smartphones sport a separate security core to handle all of your sensitive tasks and you've got that titan m2 security chip as well to store all of your personal private data and then if you also factor in the five five guaranteed years of security updates on these things as well then if security and privacy is one of your must-have features than either of these pixel smartphones will satisfy now i'm not going to dive into any more of the android 12 features because i said it's basically the same setup on both of these smartphones but i am hoping to bring you a full tips and tricks guide for the pixel 6 forza stay tuned for that if you want a more in-depth look at those features and of course my full review of the pixel sixes live again dive it a bit more into some of that software before we completely leave the security aspect of things you do have an in-display optical fingerprint sensor with both the standard pixel 6 and the pixel 6 port this tends to work quite quickly uh sometimes does take its time a little bit i'm guessing maybe if your fingers are a little bit mucky or moist just to make sure that it is definitely you but they do tend to uh to come through in the end no face unlock as yet on android however so it is basically uh fingerprints or pin all of the way no real difference of the storage front you've got a choice of 128 or 256 gigs of space depending on how much money you chuck at google basically and no micro sd support on either of these bad boys no i don't want your system go away. 

Google Pixel 6 x 6 Pro review: Display and audio

now if you want an absolutely stunning display for you know kicking back with netflix disney plus doing a bit of gaming whatever you're up to well the pixel 6 and the pixel 6 pro will both satisfy but the pro model is definitely an upgrade you've got a 6.4 inch oled on the pixel 6. it's a 6.7 incher on the pro so more space to really take in all of that action 20 by 9 aspect ratio on the standard pixel 6. it's actually a 19.5 by 9 on the pixel 6 pro so slightly wider and while it's a full hd plus resolution on the standard pixel 6 2 400 by 1080 pixel resolution that's actually bumped up to a quad hd plus resolution here on the pro model 3120 by 1440 so even though it's bigger it is a little bit sharper as well so absolutely stunning clarity the actual color and contrast output is very similar on both of these smartphones in fact i couldn't really notice difference when i was running a movie side by side you've got full hdr support of course a very crisp contrast natural looking colors but you can get some really nice vivid vibrant output as well if you kick back with a bit of pixar or something got nice wide viewing angles both screens that reach an impressive top brightness level as well so no worries with outdoor visibility if you jump on into the display settings you'll see they're basically the same you've got the usual dark themes you've got eye comfort modes all of that good stuff you can play around with the color output as well it's adaptive by default but you can boost them uh yourself as well if you prefer that more vivid output or chug it back down to natural if you prefer more realistic images the only other real difference is with the smooth display which as you can see there tops off at 90 hertz here on the pixel 16 actually all the way up to 120 hertz here on the pixel 6 pro and the pixel 6 pro can i actually drop it all the way down to 10 hertz as well if there's absolutely nothing happening on screen to help preserve power you've got a proper beefy stereo speaker output on both the pixel 6 of the pixel 6 pro as well no headphone jack on either sadly but you do at least get bluetooth 5.2 support which so far seems very dependable indeed and again no real difference between the two when it comes to the settings you've got all the usual options including live caption if you want it now playing which can detect any song that's going on in the background and.

Google Pixel 6 x 6 Pro review: Performance and battrey life

 then tell you what it is but of course one of the most intriguing aspects of the google pixel 6 series smartphones is that fresh new tensor chipset of google's own creation that's stuffed inside both of them running the show that's backed in the standard pixel six by eight gigs of ddr5 ram raz you've got 12 gigs on the pro model and the everyday performance on both the pixel 6 and the pixel 6 pro as you'd imagine nice and buttery smooth no matter what you're up to it can handle running several apps at once no problem whatsoever and basically the same benchmark and scores on both as well if you're into a bit of your geek bench not quite as strong as the snapdragon 88 it chips out the scores that that would churn out but very very similar indeed not far off at all when it comes to gaming both these phones can obviously handle likes of call of duty mobile pub pubg etc on top detail settings with the highest frame rate options as well no drops in the frame rate at all even through the most frantic of games so basically i only have myself to blame when i get sniped in the face over and over and over a freaking game however i did notice that the standard pixel six definitely struggled a little bit more with really demanding titles like gentian impact for instance especially when i bumped it up to the higher detail settings there were some serious frame rate drops going on in there whereas the pixel 6 pro generally handled it absolutely fine i could partially be down to the extra memory that the pixel 6 pro has or it could also be down to the more compact form factor the standard pixel six because i did notice that that back end started to get rather toasty after about 30 minutes of gaming not much difference between this pixel pen when it comes to connectivity got full 5g support built into that tensor chipset although it is only a sub 6 here in the uk i believe that other regions like the us have millimeter wave support as well you've got a good bit of wi-fi 6e with both the pixel 6 and the pro model as well but only the pro model has ultra wide band uh connectivity built in there too as for the battery tech well it's a 4 600 milliamp cell crammed into the pixel 6's slightly more compact frame that's upgraded to a 5 000m capacity battery for the pixel 6 pro but don't worry about that difference in capacity both the pixel 6 and the pixel 6 pro will happily see you through a full intensive day of use no worries whatsoever that includes a good bit of gaming give it a camera play plenty of audio streaming in the background while you're messaging browsing the web lots of screen on time basically and yeah they're not the fastest to recharge inside the 30 watt fast charging support is where they both max out and of course you don't get an adapter bundled in the box with either of these phones either so you will have to provide your own otherwise you can also use a qi wireless charging pad to power them both up because they both support that wireless charging and it's a slightly faster on the pixel 6 pro if you use that second generation pixel stand but we are literally talking 21 watt wireless charging on the standard pixel 6 23 watt charging on the pro so it's not exactly engulf in the difference between the speeds.

Google Pixel 6 x 6 Pro review: Camera

 so last up the camera tech and while the pixel 6 sports a dual lens rear camera away that's actually boosted to a triple lens camera effort here on the google pixel 6 pro and when it comes to the primary camera sensor there's no difference between the pixel 6 and the pixel 6 pro they both spot a 50 megapixel uh shooter with optical image stabilization built in and in both cases 2.5 times bigger than the previous generation and by jimbo can these pixel smartphones spaff out some absolutely fantastic looking photos doesn't matter if it's a bright sunshiny day or the middle of the night you will get some crisp clear photos with these things you've also got a 12 megapixel ultrawide angle shoot that you can swap to on both of these blowers as well with anti-edge distortion technology and again similar results on both again great looking images if you want that more pulled back view to fit lots of action into the frame however while the standard pixel 6 is quite content to leave it right there here on the pixel 6 pro you do actually get a telephoto lens which you can swap to and this serves up up to four times optical zoom or 20 times super red zoom which is a combination of the optical and digital zoom as well you've got optical image stabilization built in there as well so it's perfect for getting up close shots from a distance and they've basically got the same uh bonus camera modes on both these blowers as well including a portrait action if you're a nice bokeh style uh background effect you've got the new motion feature on both pixel 6 and the pixel 6 pro as well they can use that with the optical zoom here on the pixel 6 pro got a bit of night sight action as well and then if you swap to video mode on both the pixel 6 on the pixel 6 pro you can shoot up to 4k resolution footage at 30 or 60 frames per second and again really stunning results on both of these smartphones you can really get some nice crisp natural looking visuals out of these things for your home movies and of course you do have that optical zoom for the pixel 6 pro which is the one advantage it has over the standard model and last up the selfie cam is actually slightly different tech as well on the pixel 6 it is an 8 megapixel selfie shooter that's upgraded to an 11.1 effort on the pro model and you can get a slightly wider view on the pro model i believe it's 94 degrees versus 84 degrees it's not a huge difference between them uh but again good if you want to cram in lots of meat if you've got lots of mitts which i'd imagine would be something like this smile so that's a brief overview of the camera tech but i've actually done a full in-depth pixel 6 and pixel 6 pro camera review and comparison as well if you want a closer look at the photo and video quality and all those fresh new features and.
