The new high-end flagship phone was launched by the company in October. We wanted to compare the cameras of the two phones, since the high-end iPhone 14 Pro Max came out just weeks after the high-end Pixel 7 Pro.

The camera systems of the phones are similar. Apple calls the main camera the "Ultra Wide lens", which is one of three Ultra Wide lens that the phone has. The Pixel 7 Pro has a wide-angle lens. The Pixel 7 Pro has more raw megapixels than the other one.

Over the years, we've learned that high-end phones all take the same pictures, and they all look great. There are some differences to be aware of, but for the most part, you will get stunning images with the two phones.

The shadows in the standard photos are a bit darker than the ones on the phone. The images from the Pixel 7 Pro are less saturated than the images from the iPhone. In some cases, the images coming directly from the Pixel 7 Pro camera look sharper, though that could be a software effect and a difference in the editing done behind the scenes.

The wide angle and ultra wide images come out the same, but the telephoto capabilities of the Pixel 7 Pro are better than those of the iPhone. It makes a difference when you add 5x optical zoom to a phone. There is a 30x Super Res zoom option.

Some people like the more depth of field offered by the Pixel 7 Pro. Sometimes it can be difficult to separate the subject from the background, and it works better with people.

There are pros and cons to night mode. The Pixel 7 Pro is better at nighttime portrait shots of people because the iPhone tends to be too soft around the face, but the Apple device is better at shots that include the sky. There are issues with artifacting in some images, but the Pixel 7 Pro won out when it came to Astrophotography.

The theme we've seen for several years now is that video does a better job than the phone. The video on the iPhone is sharper and more stable than the one on the internet. The Cinematic Blur on the Pixel is limited to 30 frames per second, while the Cinematic Mode on the iPhone supports 24 and 30 frames per second.

When it comes to photos, the Pixel 7 Pro has an edge over the iPhone 14 Pro Max, but it's difficult to decide which is better because both phones take great pictures. What do you think of the new phone? We would appreciate it if you would tell us in the comments.
