When Google entered the smartphone segment with its first-ever Pixel device in 2016, they have received a mixed reaction from consumers. Since then they tried their level best to improve their devices and their improvement can be seen in Pixel 7. The answer we are going to answer in this blog is whether it is worth considering this device at a price range of Rs. 84,999 in India. So here is the detailed answer to this question.
|Processor||Google Tensor G2|
|Display||6.7-inch, 1440 x 3200 pixels|
|Primary Camera||50MP + 48MP + 12MP|
Build and Display
Google Pixel 7 5G comes with a 6.3-inch OLED display with a resolution of up to 1440 x 3120 pixels and a refresh rate of 90Hz. The display is flat which makes the content look crisp and clear. The display has 1,000 nits of brightness which is sufficient even in sunlight. We get an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 with corning Gorilla Glass Victus Protection.
The Google Pixel 7 5G comes with the Tensor G2 chipset, the second Gen of Google’s chipset. It is paired up with 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. However, in India, you are going to find the only base model of 8/128GB. The Google Pixel 7 5G doesn’t support External SD card support and in flagship phones 128GB is not enough.
If we talk about RAM, it is perfectly managed by the OS. This device will handle all your multitasking work very easily. However, while playing games for long hours there might be some heating issues, but they aren’t a major issue.
Google’s all devices can be trusted as far as software is concerned. Google Pixel 7 5G comes with pre-loaded Android 13, in which you are going to receive 3 more years of major OS updates. You won’t be finding any of the bloatware, and there will be a lot of pixel-exclusive features to enjoy.
In terms of gaming, you can expect that the Google Pixel 7 5G is capable of handling all your heavy games easily but don’t expect more because you are going to face heating issues on longer sessions. The performance of the device with the fingerprint sensor was optimum, whereas Wi-Fi and mobile data connectivity was decent.
Battery and Charging
The Google Pixel 7 5G is packed with a 5,000mAh battery that supports 30W fast charging and 23W fast wireless charging. You can expect the battery to last all day with minimal usage. However, if you are using the device heavily with maximum brightness, playing heavy games, and doing other heavy task then you need to search for a charging port before the day ends. Still, you can expect a battery life of up to 6 hours with always the display.
The charging port is the only drawback section of the whole device. The device takes 1 hour 50 minutes and even longer to charge from 1 to 100 percent with wireless charging. For a flagship device, this is not the optimum time, Google should work in this aspect with the next generations of flagship devices.
The Google Pixel 7 5G comes with a triple camera setup that includes a 48MP f/3.5 telephoto camera that has 5x optical zoom support, 50MP wide-angle primary camera, and 12MP Ultra-wide camera. On the front side, it has a 10MP camera for taking awesome selfies with your loved ones.
Google devices are known for their great cameras and Google Pixel 7 is no exception. In daylight, it clicks the best shots with good dynamic range. The clicks have very high detail and natural color tones. The dynamic range is decent but the detailing and sharpness could be better.
As far as videography is concerned, the pixel 7 pro shoots high-quality highly detailed videos. It can shoot up to 4K resolution at 60fps. In inside video mode, you get a feature of speech enhancement, in which the device picks up voice from the subject as you zoom in.
Moreover, Google gives you 10-bit HDR videos that give you a wider range of colors, brightness, and contrast. They have also added a cinematic mode, that you find on Apple devices. With this feature on, the phone will create a bokeh effect behind the subject in the video.
Google Pixel 7 5G is a flagship device that offers great performance with excellent camera quality. However, as far as price is concerned it is reasonable on seeing its specifications and unique features. If you wanted to opt for a flagship device that offers all-rounder performance then Google Pixel 7 5G is made for you.
