This year’s Pixel 7 Pro will be a radical upgrade from the Pixel 6 Pro, and the tech world is getting quite excited when comparing them to the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Google has seriously invested in its phone business, and after the Pixel 6 series, it’s coming back stronger this year with the Pixel 7 Pro. So is this product good enough to attract loyal iPhone users to consider switching?

In this article, we will compare two large high-end smartphones: Pixel 7 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Of course, their information in the article is compiled from rumors and leaks.
Quick comparison of expected specifications of Pixel 7 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max:
● Screen size: 6.7 inches, 120Hz refresh rate on both
● Security: Fingerprint scanner on Pixel 7 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max with Face ID
● Chip: Google Tensor 2 and Apple A16 Bionic
● RAM: 12GB and 6GB
●Standard Memory: 128GB, no microSD card support
● Rear camera: 3 cameras, Pixel 7 Pro with 4X zoom lens, iPhone 14 Pro Max with 3X zoom
● Battery: Pixel phones will have bigger batteries than iPhones
Design and display
It is easy to see that these phones are both large and quite heavy. Along with the combination of glass and metal frame, Pixel 7 Pro uses aluminum frame, iPhone 14 Pro Max will use stainless steel, giving a shiny look to the sides. Stainless steel is a superior material but also heavier.
iPhone 14 Pro Max will have a taller screen.
Both the Pixel and iPhone are dust and water resistant, most likely with an IP68 waterproof rating.
Pixel 7 Pro will be available in three color options: Classic Obsidian (gloss black) and Snow (white), a new Hazel color with a dark gray tone with copper accents. On the other hand, the iPhone 14 Pro Max will come in four colors: the familiar Graphite Black, Silver – Silver and Gold – Gold as well as the rumored new Purple color. Interestingly, the Pixel will have a glossy glass back and the iPhone will have a matte glass back.
One trend adopted by both is that there is no charger included in the box. In the box only the charging cable.
It is expected that the flagship pair will have a screen size of 6.7 inches and support adaptive 120Hz refresh rate. In terms of aspect ratio, the Pixel 7 Pro has a 19.5:9 screen ratio, the iPhone 14 Pro Max will have a taller and slightly narrower 20:9 aspect ratio screen. This small change makes the iPhone a little less wide and easy to hold with one hand.
The Pixel 7 Pro is equipped with an in-display fingerprint scanner, and we expect it to be faster than its predecessor. The previous Pixel 6 Series didn’t have some form of facial recognition, and hopefully the new Pixel 7 Pro will add that feature.
Pixel 7 Pro will “go head-to-head” with iPhone 14 Pro Max when announced later this year.
On the other hand, the iPhone 14 Pro Max relies solely on 3D facial recognition – Face ID, and with the 2022 update to iOS, Face ID can also work with masks more conveniently.
Performance and Software
Google says it started working on its first Tensor chip nearly three years before the Pixel 6 release, and the Pixel 7 Pro will deliver a more refined, second-generation version of the processor. Tensor gen2 is expected to deliver improvements in power and efficiency, with a focus on super-fast machine learning (ML – Machine Learning) performance.
On the other hand, Apple’s A16 Bionic chip will upgrade from the A15 Bionic chip – which is still the fastest mobile chip available.
iPhone 14 Pro Max will have screen changes.
But the real difference between the Pixel 7 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max may not be in performance, but in software and ecosystem. In fact, those who are already using iOS will not want to switch to Android and vice versa.
Both platforms retain users with a wide range of features. While the Apple ecosystem features the Apple Watch, easy AirDrop and AirPlay sharing with other iDevices all work seamlessly together.
Google is on its way to building a similar ecosystem.
In terms of software, the Pixel 7 Pro will be among the first to launch with the latest version of Android 13. Traditionally, Google provides software updates for 3 years, Apple has a longer software support period, usually around 5-6 years.
3 rear cameras
Users won’t be able to mistake the camera system on these phones: the iPhone 14 Pro Max will have 3 “honeycomb” rear cameras while the Pixel 7 Pro has the signature camera bar!
Despite the different designs, the camera hardware of the two phones will be quite similar: a 1X wide camera, a 0.5X super wide-angle camera, a 3X zoom telephoto lens on the iPhone, and a 4X zoom lens on the Pixel. Both have larger-than-usual sensors and advanced software.

When they launch in September and October this year, they will surprise everyone with their new photography tricks.
Sound quality and sensitivity
Neither phone has a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Last year’s iPhone 13 made a huge leap forward in sound quality with louder speakers, richer bass and depth, and better sound than most phones. Hopefully, Apple will take this to the next level in the 14 Pro Max. Last year’s Pixel 6 Pro also had very good sound quality, but it’s not comparable to the iPhone.
Battery life and charging
iPhones typically have smaller battery capacities than many Android phones, but because iOS is more efficient at managing power, they still outperform the competition. The iPhone 13 Pro Max is the closest example.
For the iPhone 14 Pro Max, the battery capacity will be around 4,300-4,400mAh, much smaller than the 5,000mAh battery expected on the Pixel 7 Pro.

Rumors suggest that the maximum charging speed on the iPhone and Pixel will not change: the iPhone 14 Pro Max will support a maximum charging of 27 W, the Pixel 7 Pro will reach a maximum charging speed of 23W.
Both the Pixel and iPhone will also support wireless charging, with the iPhone featuring MagSafe magnetic charging.
This year, the iPhone 14 Pro Max will change the front design, being narrower and faster, built on a solid iOS platform. On the other hand, Google is growing faster and perfecting the ecosystem.
According to rumors, Pixel 7 Pro will have a more comfortable starting price of $ 900 (equivalent to VND 20.88 million). On the other hand, the iPhone 2022 will increase in price and the 128 GB iPhone 14 Pro Max will cost $1,200 (about VND 27.84 million) – much more expensive.
Let’s wait and see how these two “super products” will officially face off at the end of this year.
