Google Pixel 7 vs. Apple iPhone 14


Smartphone users are spoilt for choice when it comes to excellent devices this year. No sooner had Apple announced the iPhone 14 in September than Google followed it with the Pixel 7, which, much like its iOS rival, takes the features that had made its predecessors such popular devices and adds a few extra for good measure. On top of the superb camera and long battery life of previous generations, it throws in compatibility with the newly revealed Pixel Watch while it also offers an attractively redesigned rear camera module.

The question is, how does it compare to the iPhone 14? We answer this question by looking at the different features of each and weighing them up against each other. That way, you should be able to decide which smartphone is for you.
