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

Although the Google Pixel 7a is designed to be one of the most affordable smartphones on the market, it can still hold its own against the higher end phones, such as the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. However, the price difference is significant, so it’s important to understand which corners are being cut when you choose to purchase the Google Pixel 7a.

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

At first glance, it might seem like the similarities between the two phones are surprising, considering the price difference. However, there are some important differences to consider.

One of the most significant differences between the Google Pixel 7a and the iPhone 14 Pro is the price. However, when you consider how the phones are designed to function, the price difference makes sense. While the Google Pixel 7a is made to be an affordable smartphone option, the iPhone 14 Pro is one of Apple’s top-of-the-line smartphones.

Another big difference between the two is the battery life. The iPhone 14 Pro has impressive battery life, with up to 23 hours of video playback on a single charge. The Google Pixel 7a, unfortunately, is lacking in the battery department. Although the Google Pixel 7a’s battery is larger than the iPhone 14 Pro’s battery, consumers have complained that it runs out of charge too quickly. In fact, it can hardly last a day of moderate use on a single charge.

The chips of each phone also have significant differences. The Google Pixel 7a’s chip, the Google Tensor G2, is far less powerful than Apple’s A16 Bionic chip. However, the average user isn’t likely to notice much of a difference when using their phone for normal activities.

Final thoughts

When it comes to choosing your next smartphone, there’s a lot to think about, including which features are important to you, how much you’re willing to spend, and other factors. Ultimately, whether the Google Pixel 7a or iPhone 14 Pro is best for you depends on what you’re hoping to get out of your purchase.

Regardless of whether you opt for the Google Pixel 7a or stick with an iPhone, don’t forget to think about product protection. Smartphones are expensive purchases, and they’re also easy to break–and the last thing you want is to have to pay for expensive repair or replacement costs. Although Google offers Google Preferred Care and Apple has AppleCare+, both plans often fall short of providing the most complete coverage, and they can be expensive.
