Google Pixel 6 Pro review

Previous Pixel phones usually got the first part right, and always delivered on the camera front, yet conservative specs elsewhere left them on the back foot against flagship rivals. Good news, Google fans: that all changes here


  • Slick, streamlined OS
  • Premium hardware competes with the best of them
  • Awesomely capable cameras
  • Telephoto lens

More multi-division Sony greatness, with a seriously impressive screen and pro-level camera abilities. Photo novices might find it difficult to master, but no rival has such comprehensive out-of-the-box ability


  • Astonishing display
  • Ultra-speedy camera
  • No-compromise feature list
