When you want to compare the best of Android and the best of iOS, you need to look at the niche features both of them are offering. Also, talking about Google Pixel 6 Pro, it seems to live up to all the expectations one had to see achieving the ‘iPhone of android’ goal to a maximum extent. Let’s dive in to understand what these two stalwarts have to talk about themselves when they compare with each other.
iPhone 13 Pro can be seen as another upgrade in the series of devices Apple has been launching, with some significant changes in the hardware. These hardware features were quite visible in the market through many Android phones here-before. However, the changes made to the device or, we must say, the latest launch ‘iPhone 13 Pro’ are with much better quality and durability as promised by ‘Apple’ as a brand.
Mobile devices of all types still come with a risk of getting damaged or are prone to loss/theft. There is a need to keep them secure with an affordable insurance cover. Mobile Device Protection Plan is amongst the best options available to keep your device secure in case of loss, theft, accidental or liquid damage.
We have seen the Apple Vs Pixel debate is a common scenario, but this time this is making more sense in terms of affordability, close-to-nose feature comparison and a real deal to search for ‘Value’.
Talk about the processing speed – iPhone 13 Pro, setting high standards for all the smartphones out there in the market, has an A15 bionic chip, a flagship processor as claimed by the brand. According to Apple, this new chip is expected to introduce a new and thrilling experience of performance improvements in the device. Whereas Google Pixel 6 Pro, the new Tensor processor is equivalently competitive.
Now that the performance engine seems to compete so closely, we must look into other aspects that may give us a clear winner.

Google Pixel 6 Pro starts from Rs.67,478 with all the features and specifications. Whereas Apple, keeping the stakes high as always, has priced iPhone 13 Pro starting from Rs. 1,29,990 /-
Apple iPhone 13, as opposed to iPhone 12 for improvements, seems to have cut down 20% (as claimed by Apple) of the notch size giving more space on the screen. However, Google Pixel 6 Pro has a camera lens sized window that provides much screen space when compared with iPhone 13.
Talk about the rear side, Google Pixel 6 Pro has shown some radical differences from its other precedents, and the colour shades offered for this model are quite subtle. It shows a double tone differentiation above and below the camera strip at the rear, creating a unique design in this category.
The colours offered in iPhone 13 are more vibrant, and the new shade of pink stands out from its previous offerings.
Camera placement at the rear can be a differentiator in this comparison. Google Pixel 6 Pro shows a wiser design to avoid the wobble complaints coming in from the market when most mobile manufacturers started offering protruding rear cameras. Pixel 6 Pro has a strip at the rear to house camera and flash unit that spans across the breadth of the device. The iPhone 13 Pro has a camera housing at one corner, allowing slight wobble movement of the phone when placed resting on the rear side.
A wider screen could be an advantage for Google Pixel 6. iPhone 13 has a 6.1-inch screen, whereas the Pixel 6 bears a 6.4-inch screen. Talk about the sharpness; Apple surely surpasses the sharpness offered by Pixel 6.
One of the most talked-about features in a smartphone is the Camera. Both of these models have shown considerable improvements on this. A diagonal shift of the camera positioning for the Apple iPhone 13 has provided more coverage of the shot than it did before. Also, the light coverage seems to have improved more than 45% compared with iPhone 12. Low light performance in image capturing has drastically improved, as Apple claims.
Google Pixel 6 offers a 50 MP camera at the rear coupled with an ultrawide angle lens. Zooming happens through software for both mobile devices. However, image quality can be compared to detailed features of an image rather than stating holistically.
The noise reduction in Pixel is more when compared to iPhone 13 models. Night mode performance is aced in iPhone 13 than seen in Pixel. There are several new portrait mode features and filters added to the iPhone 13, which are not that great in the case of Pixel 6.
All in all, iPhone 13, when priced at around 1.2 times more than Google Pixel 6, does show some serious improvements over the challenges faced by previous variants from the brand and, in comparison, mainly surpasses the camera, screen display and durability aspects.
