A range of new iPhones were unveiled at Apple’s Far Out event, including the iPhone 14 Pro. But how does it stack up against the Google Pixel 6 Pro?
Apple unveiled four new phones during the Far Out event, including the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
And the company didn’t stop there, introducing three new Apple Watches – Apple Watch Series 8, Apple Watch Ultra, and Apple Watch SE 2 – alongside the new AirPods Pro 2.
If you’re curious to see how these phones stack up, be sure to check out iPhone 14 vs. Pixel 6, iPhone 14 vs. iPhone 13, iPhone 14 vs. iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 vs. iPhone 14 Plus.
But keep reading to see how the iPhone 14 Pro compares to Google’s flagship phone, the Pixel 6 Pro.
iPhone 14 Pro has a brighter screen
Apple claims that the iPhone 14 Pro can reach peak brightness of 2,000 nits outdoors and 1,600 nits of peak HDR brightness, double the 1,000 nits that the iPhone 13 Pro boasts.
Meanwhile, the Pixel 6 Pro pales in comparison to a maximum 500 nits. This means that the Pixel 6 Pro won’t be able to get as bright as Apple’s solution, which means it will be harder to read the screen in bright environments such as on sun and the screen contrast won’t be as impressive.
We will be sure to test these claims as soon as we get the iPhone 14 Pro for review to see if the high nit count affects the user experience.
Google Tensor vs Apple A16 Bionic
The latest iPhone 14 Pro features the latest Apple Silicon chip in the form of A16 Bionic. While we weren’t able to test the new chip and its capabilities, Apple claims it has 16 billion transistors, a 6-core GPU, and 50% more memory bandwidth than its predecessor.
While we can’t definitively state that the new iPhone 14 Pro will be faster than Google Tensor, it runs on a 5nm node compared to the 4nm A16 node architecture, which suggests it won’t be as powerful or fast as its rival.
We will be sure to test the A16 chip as soon as we get the iPhone 14 Pro for review to see if the latest chip makes a big difference in performance.
iPhone 14 Pro has collision detection
The new iPhone series has a strong focus on health and safety, and one of the new features is car accident detection. This feature will automatically detect if you’ve been in a car accident and then contact emergency services as well as your emergency contacts with your location if you don’t dismiss the pop-up notification within 10 seconds.
The Pixel 6 Pro does not include this feature, and since Apple designed it with two new motion sensors and an improved sensor fusion algorithm, Google will not be able to add this feature retroactively, however we may see the feature come to fruition. on the next Pixel device.
You can use a physical SIM card with the Pixel 6 Pro.
One of the surprises during the Far Out event was the announcement that Apple will remove the physical SIM tray from the iPhone 14 line sold in America. This is due to the fact that the company has teamed up with carrier services and introduced its new eSIM technology to users.
Anyone who wants a physical SIM or can’t access an eSIM might want to look at the Pixel 6 Pro as these phones still have a physical SIM tray even in America. However, users can get around this issue by not buying the iPhone 14 Pro in America, as that is the only region where the SIM tray cannot be found.
