Google Pixel 7 Pro maintains most of the Pixel 6 Pro features and replaced it with a newer Tensor G2 processor.

PIxel are famous for it’s Computational Photography. Night shots are excellent but the smaller apeture may be a setback as it resulted darker shots. The tend to be darker than the Mi 10T Pro that we tested against. With the Pixel 7 Pro, digital zoom can go up to 30X and optical zoom of up to 5X. This is an improvement over the Pixel 6 Pro. The 30X SuperRes Digital zoom is pretty impressive with little noise for day shots.

It has features like magic eraser, long exposure shots, Face Unblur that are interesting features that work very well on the PIxel.

One complain though is the overheating issue. While we are in the tropics, with temperatures around 25 deg C to 35 deg C throughout the year. This happened when I shot videos in 4K/60 fps. Within 2 minutes, a pop up message indicates that recording will detoriate and a few moments later, the recording stopped completely.

I cooled it down and then turned on Airplane mode.. The overheating issue needs to be managed in a future firmware update.

Currently, the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro will work on 5G SA/NSA network on all 3 major telcos Singtel, M1 and Starhub. With it’s latest carrier settngs version datated 2022-08-11, SIMBA users are still unable to use the VoLTE function to make voice calls. (You might need to use the SIMBA voice app to make and receive calls).
