Google Pixel 6 Pro Design & Construction

Let’s get straight to the point, the Google Pixel 6 Pro is presented to us as a large and heavy model. It has a double side of glass attached to its metal body, which is already very robust and has been built from aluminum.

When we have it in our hand we can feel bulky, and it becomes annoying in the case of being used for a large amount of time.

Although this is common in large cell phones. Recall then that the dimensions of the Google Pixel 6 Pro are 163.9 x 75.8 x 8.9 millimeters, and its weight is 210 grams.

In a matter of design, we could say that it wins a lot to the natural. Google has opted for a front sufficiently well exploited by its screen. The hole for its camera does not bother at all.

Similarly, on the rear face we find a higher level of charisma. But in its construction Google has made sure of a couple of things, such as making it completely resistant to dust and water, and this is something we appreciate.

Google Pixel 6 Pro Display

The screen of the Google Pixel 6 Pro remains in a lower line than usual, the same has 6.71 inches that come to be fattened by frames that, today, could be considered as “very pronounced”, being the same straight style, but it is already a matter of preferences.

We are then faced with a QHD+ (1440×3120) LTPO OLED panel whose refresh rate rises to 120 Hz. The colors will be vibrant, with sharp contours of elements, a high level of contrast, and perfectly calibrated color temperature and saturation, aspects that Google has recognized that it decided to take care to the maximum.

The 120 Hz interface is fearless, we will appreciate smooth animations and, in general, applications will run smoothly. Its automatic brightness is another success, as it will adapt well to the ambient lighting, being able to use this device outdoors without suffering any complications.

In itself, the problems on the screen of the Google Pixel 6 Pro are not something you see, as it offers an experience other than positive. It can be summarized in a high quality panel, which will respond immediately and remains at the height of such a device.

Google Pixel 6 Pro Performance

Let’s talk about its processor, the Google Tensor. Of course, this has been developed by Google, and you can expect no inconveniences in daily use, regardless of whether you are going to do tasks that complicate the fluidity of the devices, such as playing games, or using apps for recording and editing videos.

Something that can draw attention within the performance of the Google Pixel 6 Pro is the temperature issue. We’re not meaning to say that it will overheat, in fact, it won’t even do so during hours of gaming. But you will notice it warm for most of the time.

As for the 3D graphics, these will be appreciated of the highest quality, Genshin Impact runs without slowing down the maximum power, being able to respond instantly to any interaction, although you can notice that the Google Tensor has weaknesses.

The power of the Google Pixel 6 Pro is not something that disappoints, although if it is a matter of comparing with other products on the market if you can find yourself one that another that can offer you a little more level, and that corrects the tiny flaws that you have found in it.

In case you make the decision to use it sparingly it will be very easy to go at least two days without having to charge it again. In this case, it is a device compatible with 30 W fast charging (Power Delivery 3.0) via cable and 21 W wireless charging.

It will take about an hour and a quarter to charge the cell phone from 0 to 100. During this process it is easy to notice how the temperature rises. However, it is at a level where you could say that there is no danger in use.

Google Pixel 6 Pro Interface and functionalities

The interface of the Google Pixel 6 Pro is blessed with Android 12, apart from having the goodness that they are the only devices that are automatically updated every time there is a new version by Google. And already, at the software level, we can talk about certain exclusivities.

Both the interface (which is known as Pixel Launcher), and some details of the firmware, are own and exclusive to these devices, whose presentation can become cleaner than any custom layer of this manufacturer, having its advantages and disadvantages, respectively.

In the visual aspect we may not find some kind of very significant difference to other versions, at the graphical level we can find a greater consistency. Its animations will be more fluid, and could be considered as a jewel thanks to the fluidity of its animations, among other aspects.

In this case it is worth mentioning the “Material Theming”, an automatic customization of its buttons, layer shades and applications, adapting the user interface to the colors of the wallpaper. Having a couple more options that have been designed to improve the privacy of those who have to buy this device.

Also, this device tends to take a couple of seconds within what is the shooting with the final saving. This is a process that is required so that the mobile’s AI, along with the Tensor processor, can balance the lighting, apply portrait blur, improve sharpness, among other aesthetic aspects.

Something in which the camera of this device has been enhanced is in its night shot, since with the rear camera the portraits will be sharper (the main one is 50 megapixels, it has a 12 megapixel wide angle). Its front camera, 11.1 megapixels, and an aperture of ƒ/2.2.

Something that content creators are going to fall in love with is the subject of videos with the Google Pixel 6 Pro, and is that this has the ability to record up to 4K and 60 fps as long as the main rear camera is being used.

In the case of the angular camera we can find ourselves with 1,080p and 60 fps in the same way, while with the front camera we can get to record in 1,080p with 30 fps.

So we can summarize that its recordings are at a higher level of excellence.

As a bonus, we mention that it has four levels of stabilization designed for its rear cameras, achieving shots with a total absence of shaking, even when you record with the device in your hand. In general, its results are so professional that they do not seem to be taken with a mobile device.
