I look at phones for a living and I’ve been doing it for 15 years: you could say it’s been my life. I’ve probably reviewed 19 phones in the last year – although I’ve been working on a lot of other things, and this is the phone I’d buy on Prime Day – Pixel 7 Pro. The discount drops to the lowest price ever – and $649 for the premium phonethis is a deal you don’t want to miss.
This is a phone I would recommend because this is the device I go back to after reviewing another phone. I go from the latest and greatest, back to my home phone, the Pixel 7 Pro – and that’s why I know it’s still a competitive device and worth considering. Let me tell you why.
First the design. I love the feel of this phone. I kept mine in the case for many months, but then I took it off and went back to the mirror shape. It has a very high quality and although it is a large phone, the curved edges make it easy to hold, so it is easy to use on a daily basis.
Having a bigger phone means you can take advantage of the large 6.7-inch display, which is great for gaming, watching movies or simply living your digital life. It may not be the most powerful phone on the market, but don’t let that put you off, because in real terms, I didn’t find anything that held this phone back.
But let’s not beat the bush, there’s one big thing that keeps the Pixel 7 Pro in my pocket and that’s the camera. It has become the benchmark against which other phones compete. Don’t just take my word for it, do some research DXOMark smartphone cameras – Pixel 7 Pro is the best phone of 2022 in the list.
The reason is that you can point and shoot, in any situation, and you will get a usable image. In the dark, indoors, selfies, long zooms – the Pixel 7 Pro is excellent. Me compared to the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra earlier in the year and in many areas, the Pixel excels.
Much of this comes from Google’s focus on camera hardware and software experiences. The software is great, squeezing more functionality out of the camera, but it’s able to take difficult situations, especially in low light, and create something that makes the Pixel 7 Pro even better. It means you can capture moments you might otherwise miss – and it’s no surprise that when my family gets together, it’s usually my photos they want to share.
No word yet on how this will turn out Prime Day deal it will end – but it can all end at the end of the day, 12 July. After that, it is not known when you will get the chance to buy this phone again at this price. Just remember – this is $50 cheaper than what Google offered this summer, and that sounds good to me.
