Google Pixel 6 at the best price?
A photophone still as efficient
Choosing the Google Pixel 6 for its photo capabilities is totally justified. This smartphone has two sensors, a 50-megapixel wide-angle and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle, nestled in the heart of a wide band crossing the back of the device from left to right; a rather amazing design, but this bias of the brand above all allows the smartphone to remain stable when placed on a table. The shots captured are of high quality, offering results rich in detail and contrast, even in lower light. The color rendering is very natural, and the night mode is very effective. We therefore have a very well designed photo module, even if it is less complete than that of the Pro model, which includes an additional telephoto lens. Its ultra wide-angle is on its side perfectible: a loss of sharpness could be noticed if one zooms in certain angles, or even on the shots captured at night.
The Pixel 6 also offers several other features that are not found on all smartphones, even the most premium. For example, we are entitled to a laser autofocus sensor, a spectral flicker sensor as well as optical image stabilization. The user can even personalize the shots captured thanks to Google’s algorithms, which allow in particular to deblur moving faces, or to erase people from a photo. Otherwise, the Pixel 6 is also capable of filming up to 4K at 60 frames per second.
Google offers its own chips
In addition to its photo qualities, the Google Pixel 6 has a 6.4-inch screen, less compact than the other versions, but which defends itself well with its AMOLED Full HD + panel refreshed at 90 Hz. Regarding its performance, the Pixel 6, like the Pixel 6 Pro released at the same time, does not include a Snapdragon chip as was the case for the brand’s old references. Google has chosen to integrate its own in-house chip, the Google Tensor.
This processor emphasizes artificial intelligence to offer new features with Google services, including new possibilities enabled by the camera application. However, the Pixel 6 will not really shine against the smartphones we compared it to in terms of benchmarks during our test, but its performance will be quite satisfactory in conventional use. The smartphone, on the other hand, has more difficulty running certain demanding games. Indeed, most games do not exceed 30 FPS.
Autonomy that does not disappoint
Regarding its autonomy, the Google Pixel 6 incorporates a 4,614 mAh battery, which allows it to last for a day before having to go through the charging box. Regarding the latter, precisely, a fast charge of 30 W is in the game, but which is still a little slow: in 30 minutes, we only recover 39% of the battery. A full charge takes 2 hours in total.
