Google Pixel 7a vs. iPhone 14 Plus: How do they compare?

Before diving in, it’s important to keep in mind that the Google Pixel 7a and iPhone 14 Plus were designed to serve very different purposes. While the Google Pixel 7a was created to offer an affordable smartphone option, the iPhone 14 Plus is part of Apple’s newest smartphone generation, and was designed only with quality and performance in mind. However, both phones offer their own advantages, despite the different niches they appeal to.

Here’s a look at how the Google Pixel 7a specs stack up against the iPhone 14 Plus:

One of the most significant differences between the Google Pixel 7a and the iPhone 14 Plus is the price, which makes sense considering that the Google Pixel 7a was designed to be affordable, while the iPhone 14 Plus is one of Apple’s top smartphones. However, when it comes to choosing your next smartphone, there are a lot of factors to consider, and price is only one of them.

The two phones also have very different battery lives. The iPhone 14 Plus offers incredible battery life, with up to 29 hours of video playback on a single charge. However, the Google Pixel 7a’s battery runs out of charge very quickly. In fact, it can’t even last for an entire day of moderate use. This is a huge disadvantage for users who are on the go frequently.

The phone’s chips also have significant differences. For example, the Google Pixel 7a’s chip, the Google Tensor G2, is significantly less powerful than Apple’s A15 Bionic. However, if you use your phone for average day-to-day activities that don’t require lots of computing power, you probably won’t notice much of a difference.

Final thoughts

Ultimately, whether the Google Pixel 7a or iPhone 14 Plus is best for you depends on what is most important to you in a smartphone. The iPhone 14 Plus is part of Apple’s latest and greatest phone line, while the Google Pixel 7a was designed for affordability.

Whether you opt for the Google Pixel 7a or stick with the old faithful iPhone, be sure to give some thought to product protection. Phones are expensive and easy to break, which is not a good combination. Although Google and Apple both offer their own extended warranties with Google Preferred Care and AppleCare+, respectively, both plans fall short of providing the most complete coverage.

However, with a product protection plan like Mulberry Unlimited, you can protect all your devices from accidental damage, hardware failures, and more for only $9.99 a month. It's one of the most comprehensive and affordable product protection plans on the market, guaranteed.
