Despite its slightly smaller footprint, the Pixel 7 Pro keeps all the good stuff of the Pixel 6 Pro. You’ll still get a great display, a telephoto camera, and a fast fingerprint sensor. And the best part is, it’s cheaper than its sibling. Depending on which carrier you’re shopping for, you can get the Pixel 7 Pro for as little as $900, or as much as $1,099 for the 512GB version.
The Pixel 7 Pro comes with the best of Google’s image processing technology. It’s capable of shooting stunning photos that rival the quality of photos taken on iPhones and Galaxy phones. The Pixel 7 Pro’s camera also includes features like Photo Unblur, which removes blur from your photos. Its telephoto camera also features an impressive 5x lossless zoom. And it can shoot photos with a resolution of 1440p, a first for a phone with a 5MP camera.
The Pixel 7 Pro has a curved display. It rolls around to meet its metal frame, making it easier to hold than the Pixel 6 Pro. The display has a better color reproduction and sharp contrast. It also has a much larger screen than the Pixel 6 Pro. It can reach a maximum brightness of 1,500 nits, and has an adaptive refresh rate of between 10Hz and 120Hz.
There’s also a new “Unblur” button on Google Photos that can remove noise from your photos. In short, it’s the Google Pixel’s version of the Apple iPhone’s Animoji.
Another feature that the Pixel 7 Pro boasts is Face Unlock. While not groundbreaking, it’s long overdue. If you’ve ever tried to unlock a phone, you know how awkward it can be to hold the device with one hand while using the other to unlock the device. The Pixel 7 Pro solves this problem by prompting you to set up Face Unlock when you scan your fingerprint.
The Pixel 7 Pro also has some other smart tricks up its sleeve. It features a USB-C to USB-C adapter and a USB-C to USB-A adapter. The USB-C to USB-C adapter can connect the phone to a computer or other USB device, and can also charge the phone. It also has a fast fingerprint sensor, which will detect the presence of a fingerprint and will automatically unlock the device.
The Pixel 7 Pro is packed with Google’s own Tensor Processing Unit, which is an improved version of the chip that powers the Android phone’s best camera. It’s designed to handle machine learning processes, and it gives Google more control over the performance of the Pixel. The Tensor Processing Unit isn’t flawless, but it does show improvements over the first generation silicon that powers the Pixel. It also has some refinements that have been tested and proven to be reliable.
Despite the fact that the Pixel 7 Pro isn’t perfect, it’s still a strong contender to be the best phone of 2018. Its features and design are improved over last year’s model, and it’s a great phone to own.
