Google Pixel 7 Pro Review - Okies

Written by Rahul Makwana


Pixel 7 Pro price in India starts from Rs 84,999 for 12GB RAM + 128GB storage in India.

It comes with 50MP primary, 12MP Ultra-Wide, 48MP Telephoto while there is a 10.8MP selfie shooter on the front

According to Dxomark, the Pixel 7 Pro has the best cameras compared to all the other smartphones which is not 100% true, so let's talk about it....



When it comes to indoors, the sensors heavily apply shadow to the human subject while the bokeh is not perfect when we take photos of the human face.

Sometimes, it doesn’t even blur the arm areas or the beard hair. Now, this is not a hardware issue, it’s a software issue and it can be fixed with updates but when and how much Google will improve, we’ll wait and see.

Now, of course, you will get more natural colors under sunlight or when there is enough light but the same doesn’t repeat under low light. It adds a bit of extra noise which is not good at all when the smartphone camera is ranked higher.

In short, the Pixel 7 Pro doesn’t have the perfect camera, it has its flows and I hope, google fixes these flows very soon.

One more thing,


If you’re not into photography and wanted the best smartphone for videos then stay away from the Pixel 7 Pro, it does take good videos but it’s not the best when we compared it with iPhones.

For videos, always prefers iPhone over any Android smartphone but for photography, Pixel is superior.

For videos, always prefers iPhone over any Android smartphone but for photography, Pixel is superior.

The phone comes with a 6.70-inches 120Hz AMOLED display with a resolution of 1440x 3120pixels and 1500 nits brightness.

The display is solid, it produces vibrant and close-to-natural colors, and it’s an AMOLED panel, so what else you can expect?

Also, the device doesn’t have a symmetrical bezel which is disappointing as this is Rs 84,999 smartphone. Google has just used the Pixel 6 Pro design and added some of the new features on top.

By the way, Google has added an optical fingerprint sensor which again is cost-cutting because we have smartphones in the 80k price range with ultra-sonic fingerprint sensors.


Again, the Optical fingerprint is not bad at all but Pixel 7 Pro’s fingerprint sensor feels slow down when we compare it with a 20k smartphone.

Concluding everything, the Pixel 7 Pro has a good display but those bezels don’t look that great while a slow fingerprint is not okay when we pay Rs 84999.

The new G2 chip is made by Samsung, so don’t expect the performance to be like Snapdragon 8+ gen 1 but it will be good enough for day-to-day usage and a bit of gaming.

By the way, yes Pixel 7 Pro has 5G support and it has whopping 22 5G bands which include n1, n2, n3, n5, n7, n8, n12, n14, n20, n25, n28, n30, n38, n40, n41, n48, n66, n71, n75, n76, n77, and n78

With the new Google Tenser G2, Google has implemented some AI features with the stock camera app that can shoot cinematic video and much more which you won’t find in any other Android smartphone very soon.

In short, this is not made for heavy games, it’s good for using social media, watching movies, or even playing games here and there. So don’t buy this device to play games, you will be disappointed, bit time.

The Pixel 7 Pro runs on Android 13 and it will get 3 years of OS Updates and 5 years of security updates.

In conclusion, Google Tenser G2 is a decent processor for normal users, it’s not made for power-hungry users.

No, 3.5mm Audio jack but it does have stereo speakers. The quality of the speakers is great, the bass is there and even they sound clear too.

The phone has three microphones, and Google has also improved the call quality with the help of software. So yes, if you take tons of calls every day then Pixel 7 Pro would be the good smartphone to consider.

The Pixel 7 Pro comes with a 4,926mAh battery with 30W wired and 23W wireless charging support

And no, the charger is not supplied in the box, you have to buy it separately or use whatever you have at home.

I know, the battery size is kind of small but still, it will give about a day battery life but if you’re a heavy user then you will have to charge the Pixel 7 Pro at around 4 to 6 PM.

Google Pixel 7 Pro doesn’t make any sense at Rs 84999, the fact that we have Pixel 7 Pro at 59999, why would you pay extra Rs 25000 to only get 120Hz refresh rate and 5x Optical zoom unless and will, if you’re a rich person who doesn’t care about money then go for it.
