We’ll get the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Pro before the end of the year, as well as the new Google Pixel 7. But we’re trying to find out which phone would be best for you based on current speculations. Although we don’t know much, there are some interesting rumours to work with.
This year’s improvements will be built on a solid foundation, thanks to the superb iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, Google Pixel 6, and Google Pixel 6 Pro from 2021. What’s been leaked suggests that the iPhone 14 Pro will be quite similar to its predecessors, but the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro seem to be whole new devices.
In this article, we’ll compare the next iPhones and Pixels to see what we think they’ll bring to the table when they go head-to-head in real life this autumn.
The iPhone 14 vs. the Google Pixel 7: a possible release date and price point comparison
In the autumn, Apple and Google should both be unveiling their newest mobile devices. The iPhone 14 is expected to be unveiled in September, followed by the Pixel 7 in October.
We might anticipate a $100 price increase for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, according to a trusted source. Mid-priced Max may replace the low-cost Mini variant. Accordingly, the entry-level iPhone will likely start at $799, which is in line with the current base model price of the iPhone 13.
If Google continues to undercut the competition with the $599 and $899 Pixel 6, we hope this continues with the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. In order for iPhone consumers to go to the Pixel 7 over the iPhone 14, they’ll need more than just a pricing differential, although it would be a great edge for Google to have again.
iPhone 14 versus Google Pixel 7: The Design
Apple is believed to make just minor changes to the iPhone 14’s design in comparison to the iPhone 13, while the iPhone 14 Pro may see much more significant changes. The iPhone 13’s reduced notch, as well as the general form of the phone, including the dual back camera block, is expected to stay on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max.
It is expected that the iPhone 14 Pro would be considerably different from the standard devices. If true, it will include two cutouts (one circular and one pill-shaped), as well as thinner display bezels, allowing for a larger display on a smaller phone. A new set of lenses and sensors might be added to the camera block on the rear, but the existing three lenses will remain.
The iPhone 13 small is no longer available, and its place has been taken by the larger iPhone 14 Max. Rumors claim that Apple is aiming to launch a 6.7-inch iPhone (the same size as the Pro Max), but with two cameras instead of the Pro’s three, in order to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge. Big phone enthusiasts who don’t mind Apple’s Pro features, or who simply want to spend a little less, will be happy to hear this.
For this year, we’d anticipate nothing to alter from the previous year’s Google Pixel 5 and Pixel 6 series. The reports back up this hunch, suggesting that the only change we’ll see is a modest size drop for the basic Pixel 7 and a redesigned camera bar design that showcases the camera sensors more.
iPhone 14 vs. Google Pixel 7: Display Comparison
Reportedly there will be two different screen sizes for the iPhone 14, one measuring just under six inches and the other measuring over six inches. These are anticipated to feature the same screen resolutions and refresh rates as the iPhone 13 series. There is no question in our minds that the two Pro models will acquire the 120Hz adaptive “ProMotion” screens, while the basic versions will stay 60Hz.
Meanwhile, nothing has changed in Google’s camp as well. We’re anticipating a much of the same from the Pixel 7 other than a likely 6.4-inch to 6.3-inch screen reduction. The Pixel 7 would have a 90Hz refresh rate, while the Pixel 7 Pro would have a 6.7-inch, 120Hz display.
Google Pixel 7 vs. Apple iPhone 14: Cameras
For the second time in a row, Apple seems to be keeping the rear camera arrays of the iPhone 14 models same, with the same 12MP primary and ultrawide sensors. Even so, the Pros may be updated to 48MP for their primary cameras, which might result in better-quality images or brighter photos, according on how Apple decides to utilise it.
One rumour claims that the front-facing camera on all four iPhone 14s will get an update, with a larger aperture (for brighter images) and autofocus being included for the first time.
There will be no new hardware this year, just software updates, according to the most recent Google Pixel 7 camera rumour. So, we’d have 50MP primary sensors and 12MP ultrawide sensors on both phones once everything is said and done. The Pixel 7 Pro may use the same 48MP 4x telephoto sensor, as well as an 11MP front-facing camera, as the standard Pixel 7. We believe the Pixel 7 will include a 7MP front-facing camera.
Perhaps we’ll get a lot of new Camera app capabilities even if the sensors remain the same. Google devotes a lot of emphasis to camera processing and software functions. Even without this purported 48MP primary camera, Google is still ranked lower than Apple on our top camera phone ranking. As the iPhone’s snappers are so dependable and effective, it may need some improvement.
Performance and 5G on the iPhone 14 compared. Google Pixel 7
When it comes to computing power, Apple has always had the upper hand over Android phones. However, this might change this year, since only the iPhone 14 Pro is slated to get Apple’s much-anticipated new A16 CPU. Standard variants, on the other hand, are expected to use the same A15 processor as the iPhone 13, if not the exact same one.
According to the speculations, Google is going all out and putting a new Tensor 2 processor in both of its Pixel 7s. Despite its lacklustre performance in certain evaluations, Google’s first effort at a custom system-on-chip, the Tensor, appeared with the Pixel 6. In theory, Google’s Pixel 7 should be able to compete with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 found in many of the most popular Android devices. But the iPhone will most likely take the crown. Apple’s processors just have that much power.
We don’t anticipate this year’s flagship phones from Apple and Google to be any different in terms of 5G capability. We hope that Google utilises a newer 5G modem this time around, since the aged chip in the Pixel 6 is likely to have contributed to the phone’s battery life issues.
the iPhone 14 vs. Google Pixel 7 in terms of power and charging
Battery life is excellent on the iPhone 13, and we anticipate it to become better with the iPhone 14. The iPhone 13’s larger battery helps here, but the iPhone 14 Pro’s new processor and software updates could provide a few more minutes of battery life.
Of the other side, the battery life on the Pixel 6 series was undoubtedly its poorest attribute. On paper, the phone’s batteries seem to be big enough to provide the required amount of power. Getting this right would make the Pixel 7 a phone with just a few minor shortcomings compared to its competitors.
There are no fresh speculations about charging, thus we may presume the same specifications as prior versions. If you’re using the right charging hardware, you’ll get 20W wired and 15W wireless charging for the iPhones, and 30W wired and 23W wireless charging for the Pixel.
Android vs. iOS: Software comparison
The most basic distinction between both phones is here. The Pixel 7 runs on Android, while the iPhone 14 will be using iOS.
Android 13 and iOS 16 will be the operating systems for each of these devices when they are released. Among the new features in Android 13’s public beta is the ability to alter copied text before you paste it, as well as the potential for virtual surround sound. Google, on the other hand, will reveal everything during its I/O 2022 conference in May.
For the time being, nothing is known about iOS 16, despite speculations of changes to the home screen widgets and the addition of support for augmented reality and virtual reality in future Apple devices. Otherwise, we may expect to hear more about it at the WWDC 2022 in June before the iPhone 14 goes on sale in September.
The iPhone 14 vs. the Google Pixel 7: What’s the difference?
Both the iPhone 14 and the Pixel 7 seem to be incremental enhancements over its predecessors in most respects, which means we should lower our expectations for both devices when they go on sale later this year. These phones haven’t changed much when it comes to their screens, cameras, batteries, and design. The iPhone 13 is presently a superior phone than the Pixel 6, which gives Apple the upper hand.
If Apple’s expected enhancements to the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max follow through, the iPhone might expand its advantage over the Pixel 7 Pro. As long as there’s a huge pricing gap, Google will still have a leg up on the competition.
Apple may be allowing Google to catch up on non-Pro phones. Even if Apple introduces a Max version, it will still be the basic iPhone 14 vs. Pixel 7 in terms of both size and pricing. To show how much of a bargain Google’s Pixel 7 might be even with just modest improvements in the cameras and CPU, it’ll have to employ the same components as the iPhone 13.
