Google Pixel 6 vs. Samsung Galaxy S22: Design
Both the Pixel 6 and Galaxy S22 are made of metal and glass. At the same time, they look completely different. The Pixel 6 has a more square design and thicker panels, although they are still quite thin. The display camera hole is located on both phones and is centered. Both phones also have a flat display and physical buttons on the right side. They are located on opposite sides, but on the Pixel 6 the power / lock button is above the volume buttons, and on the Galaxy S22 – vice versa.
The Galaxy S22 has flatter sides all over the phone, while the back panels on both phones are fairly flat, although the Pixel 6 bends slightly to the sides. The Pixel 6 has a fairly large camera strip on the back, which definitely stands out. The Galaxy S22 has a camera island that protrudes from the frame of the phone, so it’s essentially metallic on top, and looks very nice, similar to what the Galaxy S21 offered.
The Pixel 6 is simultaneously taller, wider and thicker than the Galaxy S22. Thanks to everything, it is also heavier. The difference is also not small. The Galaxy S22 is a much more compact smartphone, although it still has a fairly large 6.1-inch display. This should be one of the phones to consider when you are looking for a smaller device. Both are quite easy to use, and both feel like quality products. Note that they are both slippery, so using a case would be a good idea.
Google Pixel 6 vs. Samsung Galaxy S22: Display
The Google Pixel 6 has a 6.4-inch FullHD + (2400 x 1080) AMOLED display. This is a 90 Hz panel that supports HDR10 + content. It is flat and it is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus. By the way, we look at the aspect ratio of the display is 20: 9. The Galaxy S22, on the other hand, includes a 6.1-inch FullHD + (2340 x 1080) Dynamic AMOLED 2X display. It is also a flat panel display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and supports HDR10 + content. This panel also becomes quite bright at a peak brightness of 1300 bolts, while it is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus +. The aspect ratio of this display is 19.5: 9.
At the same time, the display of the Galaxy S22 can become brighter than the Pixel 6. However, it can reach this peak brightness only when the auto brightness option is enabled. The Pixel 6 also has a very beautiful and bright display. It doesn’t get as bright as the Galaxy S22, but it’s not dim at all, on the contrary. However, the Galaxy S22 will be more noticeable in direct sunlight, so keep that in mind.
But both displays are great. They offer bright colors, and the black color is as deep as you expect. Viewing angles in both devices are excellent, and the white balance is also good. They’re both pretty responsive, though the Pixel 6 feels empty due to the fact that it’s not tied to the middle of the frame. That means it’s pretty easy to fix, but it also feels cheaper compared.
Google Pixel 6 vs. Samsung Galaxy S22: Performance
But is the performance good? That should be, given that these are high-end phones, right? Well, yes, for the most part yes. At the time of writing, the Exynos Galaxy S22 version does have some issues, but Samsung has promised that a fix is already on the way. Other than that, both phones work great. The Galaxy S22 Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 offers the highest performance, and the same goes for the Pixel 6.
Pixel 6 is equipped with Google Tensor SoC, Google’s own processor. Both phones perform everyday tasks without problems and even cope with very difficult tasks. If you are a gamer, you will be able to play almost any game on both of these smartphones. They have a lot of RAM, extremely powerful chipsets, and well-optimized software.
Speaking of which, both come with Android 12 out of the box, although the builds are quite different. The Samsung phone comes with the company’s One UI design on top of Android, so it offers a different experience. However, it is much more customizable. It all depends on your preferences, but both work great. We noticed that both phones could heat up during the game, but nothing excessive or disturbing. However, the Galaxy S22 is getting a little warmer.
Google Pixel 6 vs. Samsung Galaxy S22: Battery
The Google Pixel 6 has an internal 4614 mAh battery. The Galaxy S22, on the other hand, has a 3700 mAh battery. A smaller battery is expected inside the Galaxy S22, given the smaller display. However, this is a big difference. Can you tell in use though? Well, yes, you can. The Pixel 6 definitely provides longer battery life. Usually this gave us the ability to view the screen for 5.5-6 hours. The Galaxy S22, well, it’s closer to 5 p.m.
Note that each use is different. We’ve heard that some people can reach 6 hours of real-time screen with the Pixel 6, while some go much lower. It will all depend on your usage, but overall the Pixel 6 should be able to offer longer battery life. Note that you are likely to get much worse numbers if you press the phone hard.
What about charging? Well, both phones offer wired and wireless charging. Pixel 6 supports wired and wireless charging power of 21 watts. Note that charging slows down significantly after the phone reaches 50 percent, so it will take you quite some time to fully charge it, about 2 hours. The Galaxy S22 supports 25W wired charging, 15W wireless charging and 5W reverse wireless charging. It charges faster than the Pixel 6, much faster.
Google Pixel 6 vs. Samsung Galaxy S22: Camera
Both of these phones have quite effective camera settings. Both devices come with 50-megapixel main cameras, but in different settings. Both also have ultra-wide cameras, while only the Galaxy S22 has a camera. However, the results of these two phones are different. They both provide really good shots throughout the day, but the S22 is a bit more saturated, while the Pixel 6 tends to offer better dynamic range. White balance is usually good for both, and both give a lot of detail.
Pixel 6 does a better job when it comes to shooting moving objects, such as children playing, or pets. The ultra-wide camera works great on both smartphones, but the Galaxy S22 offers a wider field of view. Chances are, you won’t be using the Pixel 6 ultra-wide camera, as it doesn’t really add that much frame width. Both cameras work well both during the day and at night, but the main cameras are still noticeably better in low light.
Speaking of which, both phones provide a lot of detail in low light and can really significantly brighten up an image. Both phones tend to have problems with light flashes, but this is not always a problem. However, the Pixel 6 tended to be more consistent for night shots, but that’s a bigger advantage. Both do a really good job.
Both of these smartphones come with stereo speakers. Both include one at the bottom (main) and an additional one above the display (front). The speakers on both smartphones are good, but on the Galaxy S22 they sound a little fuller. However, the difference is not so great, so most likely some of you would not even notice.
Unfortunately, neither phone has a 3.5mm headphone jack. You will have to access the Type-C port or just use Bluetooth. The sound coming out of both phones is good, it doesn’t sound tinny or anything like that.
