iPhone 13 Pro Max

It has a massive 6.7-inch OLED Notch display, 5G connectivity, and a new A15 Bionic chip that makes it the most powerful iPhone ever. 

The Google Pixel 6 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro max are two of the most highly anticipated smartphones of 2021. 

Both devices offer a lot of features and specifications that appeal to users. So, which one should you buy?


iPhone 13 Pro Max is a nice-looking phone. It is somehow the most attractive model of Apple smartphones in 2022 tho it still looks a lot like the iPhone 12 Pro Max. 

Also in terms of dimension, it is slimmer and more comfortable to grip. 

Google Pixel 6 Pro, on the other hand, was smartly built and fresh; kind of simple design still there is no device in the market of smartphones that looks like it anyway yet. 

It is also a device that is easy to grip and a lightweight option.

Comparing both Camera features is somehow complicated, this might want to lead to the battle between iOS and Android. 

Besides Apple smartphones, the Rear Camera from the launch of the iPhone 6s is counted as 12MP to the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Kind of confusing anyway. 

I will like to give an explanation on this for my viewers to understand what the camera megapixels really meant.

The quality of an image depends on the Camera Sensor, not on megapixels having a great sensor and a better lens with 8-12 megapixels can give a clearer and cleaner image than having more megapixels. 

More megapixels help in terms of zooming in or out when taking a video or photo without losing strength.

Apple invests more in camera sensors and less in megapixels which makes most of Apple's smartphones good at taking impressive photos but die down when it comes to 20x zooming. 

iPhone 13 Pro Max has just installed the largest sensor in the history of Apple smartphones (f-stop = f/1.5) for 2022. 

Just spot this point out so that you won't be ignorant when we give a sign like this (f/2.8, f/2.2, f/3.5, and f/1.4) on the camera features.

In a nutshell, the iPhone 13 Pro Max has a higher camera resolution than that of the Google Pixel 6 but Google Pixel 6 takes good impressive pictures too and zooms up to 20x.

Both have last-longing battery life. Google Pixel 6 battery capacity is 5003mAh Li-Po while iPhone 13 Pro Max battery capacity is 4372mAh Li-Ion but size does not matter.

Don't get me wrong am not saying Google Pixel 6 Pro battery life is not good enough it last more than a day on normal usage. 

But iPhone 13 Pro Max's battery life is still slightly longer than that of the Google Pixel 6 Pro. 

Also, you get each Charging Adaptor separately when purchasing.
