- CPU… The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have Google Tensor, only the Pro version has a little more RAM: 12 GB versus 8 GB, and the Pro also has a version with 512 GB of internal memory. In the throttling test, both devices started throttling after 15 minutes, but the 6th version copes with it better. It’s about the same in Antutu.
But as for the performance in practice, in the games themselves, the difference is not felt. In Shadowgun Legends, the frame rate is unstable during half an hour of passage, it is kept in the region of 50-55 fps, sometimes there are drawdowns of up to 40 fps. In addition, the 6 Pro has the option to set the refresh rate to 120Hz in games. In general, it is quite possible to play demanding games at high settings, but in general there are devices on the market that demonstrate greater stability under the same conditions and are cheaper.
In terms of interface, both phones are fast. True, Android 12 has not yet been fully developed on them, so sometimes various errors may occur.
- Vibromotor… Here, the specialist also has no questions about the devices, everything is excellent in terms of the quality of work.
- Sound… The speakers work louder on the Pro version.
- Display… At this point, the Pixel 6 is significantly superior to the Pixel 6 Pro. The Pixel 6 has a much worse matrix quality (noticeable strong overflows on a white background), and even the maximum refresh rate is 90 Hz (Pro – 120 Hz).
- Autonomy… Both smartphones work all day long, which is about 7 hours of display. They also discharge at about the same rate: after 60 minutes of watching videos on YouTube – by 6 percent, after 30 minutes of playing Shadowgun Legends – by 15 (Pixel 6 Pro) and 16 (Pixel 6) percent. But they charge quite slowly compared to their counterparts: 47 percent in 30 minutes, 84 percent (Pixel 6) and 81 percent (Pixel 6 Pro) in 60 minutes.
