Gifted in photography and equipped with a very fluid interface, the Google Pixel 7 has no trouble standing out from the competition. At the moment, it is possible to acquire it for 489 euros instead of 649 euros, thanks to a reduction coupled with a bonus taken over at Boulanger.

After launching its Google Pixel 6 in 2021, the Mountain View company wanted to bet on continuity for the successor to its former flagship. The Pixel 7, released last year, is therefore not really different from its predecessor, but the brand has still opted for some welcome changes. To try them, the time is also ideal since the price of this very good photophone, rated 9/10 in our lines, has just dropped below 500 euros for those who would like to get rid of their old smartphone.

Where to buy the
Google Pixel 7 at the best price?
One of the best cameraphones on the market
Google smartphones are often used to scoring points thanks to their photo capabilities. The Google Pixel 7 is no exception. It is even quite simply one of the best photophones currently on the market. Behind the famous horizontal bar located on the upper back of the smartphone, hides a module composed of two sensors: one 50 megapixel with wide-angle lens and one 12 megapixel with ultra-wide-angle lens. These two sensors are also aided by an LDAF sensor (laser autofocus) and optical and electronic stabilization.
As we noticed during our test, the main sensor of the Google Pixel 7 is simply excellent: the colors of the shots are vibrant and the sharpness amply assured. Photos are captured so quickly that the Pixel 7 knows how to transcribe a scene in its smallest details. Add to that the Google algorithms which still fulfill their mission as well, the hyper-efficient front sensor, the ultra wide-angle which widens a scene without losing quality. or the famous Super Res Zoom, a rather convincing x8 digital zoom.
Un smartphone plus compact
The Google Pixel 7 photo module is therefore hidden behind the crossbar on the back of the device. If it is reminiscent of the one that could already be found on the Google Pixel 6, that of the Pixel 7 is less thick and angular, which allows it to better integrate into the design of the smartphone. This is not the only change that Google has made for its new flagship: the Pixel 7 is slightly more compact than its predecessor (160.5 x 73.2 x 8.7 mm instead of 163 x 74.8 x 8.9 mm) and significantly lighter (197 g against 207 g).
Regarding its screen, the Pixel 7 incorporates a 6.3-inch OLED panel with a definition of 2400 x 1080 pixels (416 dpi) and refreshed at 90 Hz. If we initially regret the absence of 120 Hz, we will remind that the difference between the 90 Hz and the 120 Hz mode is not really big. Above all, we can enjoy a very bright screen, which is rather pleasant on a daily basis.
A smooth user experience
In the bowels of the Google Pixel 7, we find the new Tensor G2 chip, which promises good performance for everyday use. If this chip offers correct power for the game, you should not however expect to be able to push the graphics to the bottom, otherwise you will suffer from some slowdowns. The other downside of the Pixel 7, and not the least, is indeed its (very) slow charge. A full recharge will take almost an hour and a half. Fortunately, its autonomy will be more than satisfactory: during our test, the smartphone was largely able to last a full day with classic and not too demanding use.
Finally, we end with one of the main assets of the Pixel 7: its Pixel Experience interface. We will indeed be entitled to a user experience, with Android 13, which is particularly fluid and very pleasant. Google also offers multiple practical options, such as very rich personalization.
