Google Pixel 7 Review 

Google won again. The Pixel 7 provides the same top-notch software, camera, and AI features that have made Google's phones successes, but at a significantly lower price.

It stands between the £849 Pixel 7 Pro and the £399 Pixel 6a, competing on price and specs with Samsung, Apple, and others in the £700-800 area.

The new phone appears to be a scaled-down version of the Pixel 7 Pro. It sports a bright and attractive 6.3 flat OLED screen.

The screen is pretty good. It offers a 90Hz refresh rate to keep everything running smoothly. But it doesn't reach 120Hz or dynamically adjusts to save battery like Android rivals.

The Pixel 7 uses the same Google Tensor G2 CPU as its larger sister and performs similarly, with particularly fast AI systems such as text-to-speech.

Google's other phones have similar battery life, lasting 35 hours with the screen on for five hours. That's enough for a day of intense use, but some competitors last two.

Screen: 6.3in 90Hz FHD+ OLED (416ppi) Processor: Google Tensor G2 RAM: 8GB Storage: 128 or 256GB


Operating system: Android 13 Camera: 50MP + 12MP ultrawide, 10.8MP selfie Connectivity: 5G, eSIM, wifi 6E, UWB, NFC, Bluetooth 5.2 and GNSS

Water resistance: IP68 (1.5m for 30 minutes) – Dimensions: 155.6 x 73.2 x 8.7mm – Weight: 197g      

Google doesn't specify battery longevity, however, it should endure 500 full charge cycles with 80% of its original capacity.


The Pixel 7's recyclable aluminum makes up 19% of its weight. The corporation publishes EIRs for various items. Google recycles smartphones for free.

Google Pixel 7 128GB costs £599 ($599/A$999). Pixel 7 Pro costs £849, Pixel 6a £399, Samsung Galaxy S22 £769, and iPhone 14 £849.


The Pixel 7 has two cameras on the back: a 50-megapixel primary camera and a 12-megapixel ultrawide camera. The Pixel 7 Pro has a 5x telephoto lens.
