Samsung S21 Ultra v/s Pixel 6 Pro

The Pixel 6 smartphones are daring, and they may well be two of the most significant devices Google has ever produced. There’s a lot to like about both models, but the Pro model is my favorite. It features a beautiful 6.7-inch, 120Hz display, a reasonable price of $899 (£849, AU$1,299), and, of course, it has the cameras you’d expect from a smartphone. But, of course, it’s always the cameras in the room. Located on the back is a prominent camera bar, which houses three cameras: a primary 50-megapixel camera, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 48-megapixel telephoto camera with 4x optical zoom. Both mobiles allow their user to manage the galleries and photo sharing features through established applications. The importance of the final camera cannot be overstated. The growing use of Portrait mode and Night mode has resulted in the zoom capability being the most critical phone camera feature for many firms. It is especially true for Samsung, which has advertised its previous two Galaxy S flagships primarily based on their 100x zoom capabilities.

So, how does the Pixel 6 Pro fare in comparison? To discover it, I put it through its paces here in Sydney against the iPhone 13 Pro, which was the most prominent phone launch of the season. I discovered that the iPhone typically outperformed the Pixel while using optical zoom — that is, up to 3x, where the 13 Pro’s maximum magnification is — but that the Pixel surpassed the iPhone when zooming out farther. Also, I compared the Pixel 6 Pro to the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra when it came to longer zooms, and I was astonished to find that the Pixel 6 Pro outperformed the zoom king.

Begin by comparing the iPhone 13 Pro directly to the Pixel 6 Pro at a 3x magnification distance. In other words, the iPhone 13 Pro is utilizing its specialized 3x optical telephoto camera, but the Pixel 6 is using its primary wide-angle camera and digitally cropping it into 3x. On a bright, sunny day, I snapped a picture of a painted mural with lively colors and action-shot cricketers, which I used as my first example. We can observe the differences between the iPhone and the Pixel when we zoom in three times. The iPhone produces warmer images, as seen most prominently by the varied shades of green generated by each phone compared to the Samsung. For the time being, I’ll set aside the question of whether something is excellent or poor in terms of taste. A “Structure” filter from Instagram seems to have been used to the Pixel shot, which has been boosted significantly: A photograph taken with an iPhone reveals details that were previously unnoticed but are now prominent in the Pixel photograph. Take note of the fracture that runs between the bowler’s artwork and the lady’s artwork to the left of the bowler.

However, you may like the details that the Pixel’s processing brings out, which I find more realistic and colorful on the iPhone. A brighter, better-contrasted, and larger shot were taken with the iPhone 13. Looking at the cracks and breaks in the canvas, you’ll see that the iPhone’s photo has far more information. In this instance, a depressing detail, but a fact nonetheless! To illustrate this point, consider the following scenario. Photographs shot at night in a well-lit location are shown in the gallery below: However, this time, the shot taken by the Pixel is brighter, albeit not necessarily in a positive manner. Light is more unbalanced in the Pixel’s representation, resulting in a more contrast image than the iPhone’s rendering.

At the same time, though, the Pixel captured information that the iPhone had overlooked. Another thing I observed about the Pixel is that it dislikes shadows, as is shown below. This is because Pixel’s cameras work very hard to capture information in regions that seem dark in the iPhone’s camera images. Consider also that the Pixel 6 Pro utilizes its primary camera and cropping in, which gives it a slight edge over the iPhone 6. The iPhone performed far better in low light than the iPad, albeit this was not the case all of the time. As a result, the iPhone was able to catch more light and detail in the mural photographs shown below. But keep in mind that Pixel’s photo has richer colors than the rest of them.


While the Pixel may occasionally generate photographs that seem over-processed during the day, I found that the Pixel’s performance at night was often in the other direction. When comparing the iPhone and Pixel versions of the same stone cross, it is brighter, but it also has more noise and an ugly color. Move closer to 4x on each of the phones now. Essentially, this implies that the Pixel 6 Pro utilizes its 4x optical telephoto camera, while the iPhone uses its 3x telephoto camera and digitally crops into the image to get a 4x magnification. It isn’t a huge difference, but it is apparent nevertheless. This transparent processing and loss of vibrancy occur due to the digital zoom that increases the iPhone’s magnification from 3x to 4x in size. Take note of the Pixel’s proclivity for illuminating shadows, as shown here on the fellow’s snout. Look at the colors in Pixel’s photo, though, and see how much more vibrant they are.
