We are picking up two premier flagships, pixel 7 Pro and Apple iPhone 14 pro max, from both the series to compare and decide who the winner is.

As per the rumors and leaks available. We can say both the flagships offer the largest display screen possible, long battery life, updated software with new features, new chipset technology, and the best cooling system to run faster to yield better performance.

- We expect iPhone 14 pro max to be more costly than the Pixel 7 pro.
Now, let’s make a bit more detailed comparison.
Apple iPhone 14 pro max release date vs Pixel 7 pro Release date: And the Price Difference:
Both the handsets are expected to be available this year, 2022. As per the rumors, Google Pixel 7 Pro will be available in October this year. Apple iPhone 14 Pro max is expected to be unveiled before everyone in the fall, September 2022. So, both the handsets will be available nearly at the same time.
There is a difference in the price list between the two handsets. As per leaks, we expect a $100 hike for both iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. So, we hope iPhone 14 Pro starts at $1,099 and iPhone 14 pro-Max begins at $1,199.
Now, Google did not push the price of its pixel 6 series over$900. Pixel 6 sells at $599, and Pixel 6 pro sells at $899. We expect Google will continue the same price chart for the Pixel 7 series. So, the premier Handset, Pixel 7 Pro, will not be priced more than $900, and the Pixel 7 will be even cheaper, not more than $600.
So, if the price is concerned, Google got certainly advantage over Apple.
Pixel 7 Pro vs Apple iPhone14 pro max: Design and Display difference:
Everyone expects there will be a bit of change in the design of the iPhone 14 series compared to its predecessor. There are expected “dual” camera blocks in iPhone 14 series like its predecessor iPhone 13. iPhone 13’s narrower notch is also expected to remain in iPhone14 max and iPhone 14. The iPhone 14 Pro Max is expected to receive changes in design. Rumors and leaks say there will be a 20% narrower bezel, a larger camera bump at the rear, a notch (pill-shaped) probably for the Face-ID, and a punch hole at the front side for the “selfie-Camera”. A narrower bezel indicates an increase in the “Screen-To-Body” ratio. So, Apple fans are sure to get redesigned premier handset.
Google has already implemented a design overhaul in the pixel 6 series. So, experts say there will not be a lot of redesigns we can expect this year. Only we can expect a smaller display and size in the base Pixel 7 handset and probably a new “Camera-Bar” design, says the leaks.
We will have a 6.1 inches display for the two base variants in iPhone 14 series. But, there will be a big 6.7 inches screen for iPhone 14 Pro max. The two base models will have the same resolution and refresh rate as the base model of the iPhone 13, with not more than a 60Hz refresh rate. While the two premier variants, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, will likely get a 120 Hz adaptive (promotion) refresh rate,
Now, let’s look into the Google Pixel 7 Series. The base model, Pixel 7, is expected to have either 6.3 inches or 6.4 inches display screen with a 90 Hz refresh rate. The premier handset, Pixel 7 Pro, will have 6.7 inches display screen with a 120 Hz adaptive refresh rate.

Apple will not introduce any changes to its base iPhone 14 model. Like iPhone 13, two 12MP resolution sensors and an ultra-wide sensor at the rear. The leaks and rumours say that two premier handsets, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, may have chances to upgrade the main sensor to a stunning 48MP resolution. Apple may upgrade the “Selfie” camera at the front for all the variants of the iPhone 14 series. The front “Selfie” camera may get a “wider” aperture and autofocus, says rumors.
Meanwhile, Google may not introduce a new sensor this year. The base models of pixel 7 will have a 12MP resolution ultra-wide sensor along with a 50MP resolution main lens. Only the Pixel 7 Pro may sport an 11Mp front camera and a 48MP resolution (4x zoom) telephoto lens. Also, it is expected all the variants of Pixel 7 to remain with the old 7MP resolution “Selfie” cam.
But, Google may introduce changes in the camera software. Many new “Camera” Apps will be introduced and expected to upgrade the quality of the photo. So, it can be an advantage point for “Google” to attract “snap lovers”.
Pixel 7 Pro vs Apple iPhone14 pro max: The “Performance” and “Battery”:
Apple has offered its own silicon “A 16” bionic chips in the iPhone 14 series; it is an educated guess by the experts.
Google is also introducing its new “Tensor 2” chipset in the pixel 7 series. The second generation, “Tensor 2”, is expected to satisfy all the users as its predecessor did in the Pixel 6 series. But, experts say Google should manage to get more power out of “Tensor 2” to take on the “Snapdragon 8 Gen 1”. Both Apple and Google makes their handsets 5G compatible.
So, we can say iPhone 14 has its advantage over the Pixel 7 series whenever the performance concerns. But, this time, Google will use a more technically advanced “Modem” to offer smoother 5G connectivity.
Both the iPhone 14 and Pixel 7 series gets larger battery than its predecessor. Pixel 7 pro offers a 5000 mAh battery, while iPhone 14 Pro Max gets a 4400mAh battery. But, the battery life in iPhone 14 pro max manages to last longer than Pixel 7 Pro Max.
Apple offers 15W wireless and 20W wired charging for its upcoming iPhone 14 series. At the same time, Google offers a 23W wireless and 30W wired charging facility with the Pixel 7 series.
In conclusion, we can say buying a handset always depends upon the user’s mindset. Every buyer is inclined to a particular brand of his/her choice. Though sometimes, better technical up gradation and new features may influence the buying decision. I hope this article will provide information that an intuitive buyer always looks for. So, we want to know from you guys what your choice is. Please comment, and let’s forward this discussion.
