The Pixel 7 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max square off in this head-to-head showdown. In addition to having the largest displays and largest batteries available in the flagship sector, these two phones are so huge that the processors can operate at their maximum and greatest performance levels without overheating.
While the iPhone has just been leaked and rumored thus far, Google has already given us an official look at the design of the Pixel 7 Pro, so it’s important to keep this in mind. This comparison is based on information still in its infancy, as the gadgets aren’t out until autumn.

Aspects of Software and HardwareApple A16 Bionic compared to Google Tensor Gen2
Almost three years before the debut of the Pixel 6, Google began development on its first Tensor chip, which is now a second-generation processor in the Pixel 7 Pro. In terms of power and efficiency, Tensor gen2 is projected to be a big advance, but most significantly, it focuses on super-fast machine learning (ML).
A15 Bionic is still the fastest mobile processor available in 2022; thus, Apple’s A16 Bionic chip has a tough bar to cross, We don’t yet know anything about these chips in terms of specifics, but we’ll keep an eye out for news and update this post when it does.
However, it’s possible that the performance gap between the Pixel 7 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max isn’t all that significant. Perhaps it’s just a matter of software and the surrounding environment. As a general rule, those acclimated to iOS will not want to transition to Android. If you’re a fan of the Apple ecosystem, which includes the Apple Watch, AirDrop, and AirPlay compatibility with other iDevices, AirPods, and AirTags, you’ll want to stick around. Google is working on a comparable product, but it hasn’t reached its full potential.
The Pixel 7 Pro will be one of the first phones to run Android 13 when it goes on sale. Google normally gives three years of significant software upgrades, but Apple typically provides five to six years of software support.
A closer look at the Design and Display
As a general rule, you should expect these phones to be bulky and hefty. This will be a hit with certain individuals, but it may not be for everyone (in that case, look for the Pixel 7 or the non-Max iPhone versions).
In contrast to the iPhone, which is likely to employ stainless steel, the Pixel has an aluminum frame. Stainless steel is a more expensive and heavier material, but it’s worth it in the long run because of its durability. A water-resistant certification of IP68 is expected for the Pixel and iPhone, as well as dust and splash resistance.
The Pixel 7 Pro will be available in three colors: black, white, and a new shade of gray with copper metal elements called Hazel. The other two colors are Obsidian and Snow. Graphite, Silver, and Gold are believed to be available on the iPhone 14 Pro Max, while Purple is a new color option that has surfaced in rumors. In an interesting twist, the rear of the Pixel will be glossy, whereas the back of the iPhone is matte.
No chargers are included in the package, which is a sad trend for these two products. There will be no charging brick, just a compact box with a charging cord.
For the most part, we expect both phones to have 6.7-inch screens, although we expect the iPhone to have a slightly different aspect ratio. Compared to the Pixel’s 19.5:9 aspect ratio, reports suggest that the iPhone will have a slightly higher and narrower (20:9) display. If this minor adjustment is made, it may be simpler to hold with one hand.
We expect additional information to be released soon regarding the screen quality. We’ll conduct our usual display calibration and color accuracy tests when these phones arrive to provide you with the most accurate data possible.

Camera Quality It’s a war of algorithms
Both the iPhone’s camera system and the Pixel’s camera bar are so distinct that it’s impossible to mistake them for one another.
Despite their differing looks, the Camera hardware is identical between the iPhone and the Pixel: 1x wide, 1x 0.5x ultra-wide camera, and then 3x and 4x telephoto lenses. If you go further into the specifications, you’ll discover that both include larger-than-average camera sensors compared to the rest of the industry, but the software is what makes it all work.
Last year, Apple introduced photographic Styles, which enable you to customize the photo’s color scheme, as was Cinematic Mode, which allows you to blur the backdrop of films in the same way you do with portrait mode images. The Magic Eraser feature of the previous Pixel, on the other hand, made it easy to eliminate unwanted elements from a photo with a single tap.
However, no information is available as far as what we may expect in terms of camera and video features, so stay tuned! For now, we’ll have to see. Video recording at 4K120 resolution for high-quality slow motion would be spectacular if available!

Durability and Rechargeability of Batteries
For the most part, Apple has always used smaller batteries in its iPhones, but iOS’s apparent superiority in power management allows it to catch up and surpass the Android competitors. Our iPhone 13 Pro Max was one of the longest-lasting phones we had ever used!
According to our estimates, the iPhone 14 Pro Max will have a battery capacity of between 4,300 and 4,400mAh, compared to the Pixel 7 Pro, which has an estimated 5,000mAh battery capacity. However, don’t confuse battery capacity with battery longevity! We will need to get our hands on a few phones to find out.
Until now, speculations have it that the maximum charging rates for the iPhone and Pixel would not change, which means that the iPhone 14 Pro Max will be able to charge up to 27W, while the Pixel 7 Pro will be able to charge up to 23W.
It’s important to remember that there is no charger included in the package, so if you don’t already have one, click here to purchase a fast charger.
Wireless charging will be available on both the Pixel and the iPhone, but the iPhone stands out because of its MagSafe fancy magnetic charging, which latches snugly to compatible chargers, which are only available on the iPhone.

This time around, we’re hoping that the Pixel 7 Pro’s in-display fingerprint reader will perform better than the one on the previous model, which had some significant difficulties. Face recognition was absent from the previous model, and we anticipate the upcoming Pixel 7 Pro to finally have it.
Instead of relying on 3D facial recognition like the iPhone 14 Pro Max, Face ID will be available with masks in iOS 2022, which will address a key issue that many customers face with the technology.
Audio quality and haptic experience
The 3.5mm headphone port is a thing of the past on most major flagships, so it’s not a big deal for these two devices.
The iPhone 13’s speakers were BANGING. They got loud, had bass and depth, and did audio better than most phones last year. As for the 14 Pro Max, we’d want to see Apple improve on this one. Compared to last year’s Pixel, which had excellent audio quality, this year’s Pixel has a lot of work to compete with Apple’s iPhone.
