For the first time, the Google Pixel 7 Pro is for sale in the Netherlands. What’s so special about this phone?
Google Pixel 7 Pro also for sale in the Netherlands for the first time
Great news for Android phone lovers. For the first time, Google will sell phones in the Netherlands, in the form of this seventh-generation flagship model and other models. Before this, you could only do parallel imports from the United States, for example.
Most Android compatible phone, and cheap too
An important reason to buy the Google Pixel 7 Pro is that the up-to-date Android version is always installed. In fact, Android is being developed and tailor-made for Pixel devices. But there’s more. For example, Google guarantees that the firmware will last three future Android generations, so up to Android 16. Security updates even last up to five years. Only Samsung offers a similar service.
The Pro also offers a lot of value for money, comparable to the Chinese devices. Google has not skimped on the hardware of this latest addition to their smartphone family, making this phone a real flagship killer.
Very good cameras, comparable to the iPhone
The Pixels have always been known for their excellent cameras, and the Google Pixel 7 Pro fits right in with this tradition. The 50MP (main) cameras, 12MP ultrawide camera and 48MP telephoto camera (with up to 5x optical zoom, 30x including software zoom) and 12MP front selfie camera are almost unsurpassed.
The images are as sharp as those of an iPhone 14 Pro. Even with a somewhat paler, but more realistic color balance and for a lower price. Also includes a 5 times magnifying telephoto lens.
Tensor G2 AI chip unique to the Google Pixel 7 Pro
This also includes a bright 6.3-inch OLED screen with the maximum brightness of 1400 nits. This is sufficient to be able to read the screen in full sun. And the powerful Tensor G2 chip, developed by Google, enables machine learning and artificial intelligence applications this phone run much faster and better.
Battery Google Pixel 7 Pro is a weak point
Unfortunately, the phone has not improved on one point. The battery life is relatively low, with full use between six and seven hours. That is one hour less than the predecessor. However, this phone can be charged fairly quickly, with the included 30 W charger.
Conclusion: Google Pixel 7 Pro significantly reduces the difference with both top brands
The Google Pixel 7 Pro comes close to the performance of the latest iPhone and Samsung Galaxy and even surpasses it in some respects. However, the price difference with the two frontrunners is getting smaller. For example, for the 128 GB edition you pay almost € 1000, for the 256 GB edition you will even pay around € 1250.
