Pixel 7pro oyeeeeee

Google is the newbie at in-house closed ecosystem vs Apple is the experienced leader with lots of expertise which is why iphone 14 pro is light years superior to pixel 7 pro.
Ever since Google started mirroring Apple's in-house closed ecosystem in 2021 with pixel 6 and pro models powered with their first custom in-house tensor chip their phone performance has been mediocre vs the competition. Then in 2022, their pixel 7 and pro models powered by another in-house custom chip tensor 2 chip although improved still had mediocre performance vs the competition. What Google should have done is, rather than making their own chips, Google should have continued to use Qualcomm snapdragon chips since pixel 5 and prior models all using Qualcomm chips where a success. Had Google done that, there's no question that pixels 6 and pixels 7 would have had much better performance. Also, since Google already makes the android OS software, they could have optimized it to work good with qualcomms 8 gen 1 and 8 gen 2 chips which would have produced the best hardware -software efficiency optimization among android based phones.
well this is probably my last comment here just letting you guys know. mom caught me trying to get in my phone and took it. google phones have always been great to me and i was able to get in using GIP tech, but now she is saying i have to go to cranbrook. keep it real muchachos!
I want to let you know that Google still hasn't fixed severe camera bugs that exist since the release of the 7 Pro. Sometimes the camera doesn't save photos when you zoom +use the flashlight. I could reproduce this with multiple Pixel 7 Pros. I sent feedback to Google in October, nothing has happened. Also, yesterday I recorded a video in the photo mode and I zoomed and everything looked good in the preview, but the saved video file only showed one frame in the last part of the video.
There are also many things that could be better, but Google doesn't care.
-The white balance slider should make absolute adjustments and not relative adjustments, sometimes you just need a daylight white balance preset (older Google phones like the Nexus 5x and Pixel 1 offered white balance presets). A high white balance slider setting sometimes makes the image more yellowish, sometimes more greenish, it's inconsistent due to relative adjustments.
-a Lightroom-like clarity effect makes colors desaturated and cooler occasionally, then the live photo video frames can have better colors and a better white balance than the jpgs. Sometimes you choose the correct white balance in the preview and the image processing changes the white balance slightly
-the preview is often inaccurate regarding blown out highlights, sometimes the preview is even totally wrong regarding the total image brightness when you use the periscope camera
-20x and 30x digital zoom destroy details, you get more details when you use a crop from a 15x photo. It's a mystery for me why Google has chosen such a terrible algorithm for 20x and 30x.
-in low light conditions you can't use the 0.7 micrometer mode of the periscope. Then Google switches to a very artificial digital zoom algorithm, the results are usually much worse when it suddenly starts doing that, it would be much better, if one could force the 0.7 micrometer mode.
-There is still the bug from the Pixel 4 that using a low brightness setting + high shadows setting uses too short exposure times instead of a lower analog gain.
-Photosphere doesn't support the periscope camera.
-images can have terrible artifacts, even the raw files
Don't buy a Pixel 7 pro. This my first and last Google device. Apps constantly crash and I have to re install them. The main one this happens to is MS Outlook. I use it everyday and the device regularly shuts it down when I open it. This phone is clunky and you feel it controls you not the other way around. It's like using a beta device which isn't yet ready for customer release. I wish I'd bought a Samsung
What a thorough great review, thank you! None of the fanboy stuff that typically leaks through "reviews."
Wifi calling ?
Do you have these not working?

Had this since Black Friday, and have a few big gripes I have with it.
As a motorcyclist, I have a qi mount on the bike for the phone. Out in heavy rain the other day, and just the rain hitting the screen kept acting like finger presses, and apps opened/closed etc. etc. all from the rain hitting the screen!
The next issue is Voice Access keeps activating itself, e.g. halfway through a text message I was typing, it picked up the conversation from a couple of people a few feet away, and started transcribing their conversation into my text message!
Next off - BlueTooth and earbuds, I already had 3 different makes from over the years which have worked well with other phones and devices, but for some reason, this phone keeps dropping the connection.
Lastly, Home screen, why oh why can we not remove the Date from the display, and use a widget of our choice?
On the plus, I love the share-charging feature, flip to shush, shake to switch cameras front to back, wallet in the drop-down menu instead of having to find the icon.

I'm sure there are phones that make the games feel "smoother" but I can't really tell honestly. The pixel 7 has been amazing for me, it's done everything I wanted it to do and more for a pretty reasonable price tag compared to other phones I was looking at.

It... moreComparing one of the best smartphones of 2022 with a low budget gaming laptop? Here is a 10 points from me.. lol... Yeah, you are right, Pixel are not meant for gaming, so if you need that on your phone get the Poco or whatever. Their mission is to cramp the best possible hardware for the cheapest prices because they have a completley different bussiness model. I know most people don't care about that. But what if someone's not gaming on their phone? What if they have some other preferences like AI or camera, or user experience, or something else? Phones are more then just chipset specs. Pixel is not meant for gaming and you will notice all that BIG perfomance differences between a top flagship chispets by Snapdragon or Mediatek only in gaming. So? Why are you angry? Companies removed the 3.5mm jacks because they want bigger sales for wireless headphones, SD card is missing too because they want to sell us the cloud storage. You think people wanted that? NO! Why would they? Companies forced us to go their way and then they brainwashed us how can we use a 100 years old tech in 21st century devices which we all know is just a marketing ploy for their bigger BT headphones sales. But they are achieving their goal because people in here are really fighting over some stupid things.. like synthetic benchmarks results.. what about real life perormance? Who cares right..

Khodemamd, 26 Oct 2022battery life is awful , and its very important the battery life is amazing, this post is wrong.
Anonymous, 25 Oct 2022Garbage battery life, no thanks the battery life is fine. i can make it through a 10 hour day at school with 75% battery life. this is with power saving off, wifi, bluetooth, location, and mobile data on, about 2 hours of periodic usage, and 4 or 5 hours of streaming music at high quality with bluetooth earbuds. the battery works wonders.
Which version did you review in this test. You don't seem to specify. Was it the 128 with 8 GB ram or was it the 512 with 12 GB ram?
