Google Pixel 6 Review

Pixel 6 is a good attempt by Google to create an even more successful and attractive smartphone. It uses the company's Tensor chip, thanks to which the device performs all calculations more safely and quickly. The new solution goes hand in hand with several other improvements to the Pixel 6.

Design

The smartphone looks modern and stylish. The design of the back panel is impressive. It is covered with Gorilla Glass 6 and comes in two colors. The horizontal strip of the camera runs the entire width of the rear panel and looks out of the ordinary. Its function is not only to make the Pixel 6 stand out from the competition, but also has a practical application. Putting the smartphone on the table, it will not shake.

There are no criticisms regarding the convenience of working with Pixel 6. Its dimensions are standard for modern models.

Display

Pixel 6 has a flat 6.4-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 20: 9. It is surrounded by thick frames. The picture refresh rate is 90 Hz. The front of the device is covered with protective glass Gorilla Glass Victus. Below the screen is positioned the fingerprint scanner, which you will quickly get used to working with. The aluminum frames look spectacular, although thicker than expected.

Productivity

Pixel 6 is the first smartphone from Google to run on the company's Tensor chipset. This gives him a special role. The chip is specially developed for Pixel smartphones and comes with 8 GB of RAM. This solution makes the Pixel 6 enjoyable to use. The camera app opens quickly, the animation looks smooth and you will enjoy the games.

In terms of performance, the chip does not offer records. It largely corresponds to the performance of the Snapdragon 888. Among its advantages are certainly safety, machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Pixel 6 is available in 2 modifications depending on the size of the internal storage. You can choose between 128 and 256 GB. It is good to assess in time what storage you need, as there is no slot for its expansion. Mali-G78 MP20 is responsible for the graphics.

Cameras

This 2021 Google model has great photographic capabilities. The lenses have been updated and the sensors take fantastic pictures. The rear camera consists of two modules. The first is wide-angle and the second is ultra-wide-angle. We find the same solution in the Pixel 6 Pro. The ultra-wide-angle camera offers a 0.7x zoom. Overall, it's good, but not perfect. The photos are detailed. If you decide to make the transition between the main and ultra-wide angle camera, you will notice a decrease in quality.

As for the main 50-megapixel sensor, it uses the pixel merge method to create 12.5-megapixel images. The details are excellent, the photos - shockingly good!

To meet the high demands of modern smartphone users, Google has provided many camera modes and various processing tools. Night mode offers two options - Action Pan and Long Exposure. The first gives the background of the photos a sharp blur when moving.

With the Magic Eraser mode you will discover and identify the silhouettes of people in the background. You will also find improvement in facial processing algorithms.

With Pixel 6 in hand, you will be able to record super quality videos - better than those with any other Pixel phone. When shooting in medium or low light conditions, you will notice that the noise is more noticeable. However, you can use Real Tone and make adjustments.

The front panel of the smartphone has an 8-megapixel camera that captures video with a quality of 1080 pixels. The selfies are at a medium level. With more practice you can safely share them on social networks.

Autonomous work

Google promises around the clock in conditions of regular use. However, in intensive mode, you will need to reach for the charger earlier. Creating many high quality videos and photos melts the battery fast.

Under the body of the device, which is available on the market in three colors, you will find a battery with a capacity of 4614 mAh. 30W fast charging technology is supported, with the help of which you will have 50% of the battery in just 30 minutes. There is also an option for fast charging 21W.

Google is not inferior to modern technology and has provided reversible charging. This allows you to use the Pixel 6 as an external battery and recharge important devices.

Conclusion

Pixel 6 is another proof that Google continues to actively work on creating exciting smartphones. This model impresses with a unique two-tone design, excellent value for money and satisfactory results from the main camera.

What may make a bad impression on you is the poor performance of the fingerprint scanner.
