Although being a Galaxy S series phone, the S22 Ultra is based on the Note20 Ultra’s design. It features a flat top and bottom with rounded sides that complement the curved edges of the 6.8-inch QHD display. This also makes the phone much easier to use. In addition, unlike the Pixel 6 series, Samsung has fully integrated the camera bump into the phone’s body. The dedicated S Pen slot on the bottom left allows you to write notes or draw. The S Pen itself is also new, having a grippy feel that makes it more comfortable to handle.

The Pixel 6 Pro features a more specific look. With a dual-tone back and a huge visor-like camera strip. This may not be to everyone’s liking. Please keep in mind that they are both large phones, so if you dislike large phones, you may want to look for alternative options.

Both phones employ pixel sorting to produce photographs with a resolution of roughly 12MP. Google phones are famous for their photographic talents, and the Pixel 6 Pro is no exception. But, Samsung’s offering this year has made significant AI and image analysis advances, particularly in low-light conditions.

Both devices have a 12MP f/2.2 ultra-wide camera. Though the one on the S22 Ultra has a somewhat different design. The broader angle of vision: 120° vs. 114°. The Pixel’s ultra-wide camera isn’t as excellent as its primary sensor. Although Samsung’s ultra-wide camera does a good job when there’s enough light. The telephoto setup differs, with the S22 having a more flexible setup that includes a 10MP f/2.4 3x optical zoom camera as well as a 10MP f/4.9 periscope shooter with 10x zoom. The S22 Ultra can provide up to 100x Space Zoom. Thanks to AI wizardry and the 10x telephoto camera. The Pixel 6 Pro has a 48MP f/3.5 telephoto lens with 4x optical zoom and up to 20x Super Definition.

In terms of video recording quality and features, the Galaxy S22 Ultra significantly outperforms the Pixel 6 Pro. Aside from 8K video recording, it has Auto Framing, which keeps the subject in the frame automatically. There are also other camera capabilities and video modes to experiment with. On the S22 Ultra, Samsung is also using a Super Clear Glass lens. which it claims will help decrease evening flares.

In terms of front cameras, the S22 Ultra’s 40MP selfie shooter features autofocus, allowing for clearer selfies. However, the Pixel’s 11MP snapper is also rather good.

Battery life and charging speed

The S22 Ultra lasted 10 hours and 11 minutes in 60Hz display mode and 10:02 in 120Hz display mode in the used battery check. This requires continuous online browsing at a screen brightness of 150 nits.

Compare that to the Google Pixel 6 Pro, which lasted only 7:46 and 7:43 minutes, despite having the same 5,000 mAh battery.

The Galaxy S22 Ultra also has an optional 45W charger. Which charged the empty Samsung phone to 67 per cent in 30 minutes. The Pixel 6 Pro’s 30W charger can only charge it to 40% in the same length of time.

Software and features

The Galaxy S22 Ultra’s most obviously unique feature is the S Pen. Which allows you to take notes, draw, and do numerous shortcuts. And, unlike the Galaxy S21 Ultra, the S Pen is now integrated, as it should be. Moreover, the S Pen now has 30% less sensitivity.

In comparison, the Pixel 6 Pro, includes a number of unique features. This includes the Photos app’s Magic Eraser, which can remove photo-bombers or unwanted items from photos. The Galaxy S22 Ultra features an object eraser, however, it isn’t as effective.

Google Assistant is also smarter on the Pixel 6 Pro. When you dial an 800 number, for example, it will inform you how long you will have to wait. And the phone may even wait on hold for you.

It’s important to note that Samsung guarantees four years of software upgrades, against three years for Google on the Pixel 6 Pro.

When it comes to security, the Google Pixel 5 is the best Android phone. Google develops its phones to be safe from the start, and its monthly security fixes guarantee you won’t fall victim to future attacks.

Is Samsung or Google better?

Google phones typically have a strong benefit over other Android smartphones in terms of faster software upgrades and longer years of support. But Samsung has undercut that with the Galaxy S22. Samsung promises four years of software upgrades, plus an additional year of security fixes, starting with this new phone.

Is Pixel camera better than Samsung?

Again, Google’s telephoto lens zooms in further than Samsung’s 3x lens. So the Pixel’s image seems closer to the subject than the S22 Ultra’s. Samsung is also pushing hard on the amber shade – this won’t look to be as warm in person. Google’s image is superior to the other.

Conclusion

What is the finest Android phone available right now? A difficult issue, but you can always depend on Samsung and Google to provide a suitable solution. Of course, in the world of Android, the holder of this title changes frequently.
