iPhone 14 Pro humiliated the top-end Google Pixel 7 Pro in an autonomy test


Enough time has passed since the release of the new iPhone 14 models, so bloggers managed to test smartphones in different ways. However, users are most attracted to the iPhone 14 battery test: comparing its autonomy with the latest Samsung Galaxy is a thankless task, since the South Korean flagship loses all the time , so the result is quite predictable. In order for the content to turn out to be really interesting, bloggers had to wait for the release of the Pixel 7 Pro – Google’s smartphone this year seems to be a more solid competitor for the iPhone. We will tell you who won the iPhone 14 Pro Max and Google Pixel 7 Pro autonomy test – it will be very interesting!

iPhone 14 Pro Battery

Most likely, Apple’s new flagship has already been criticized for its lack of innovation, but it has one thing you can’t help but love – it’s a powerful battery. The company traditionally did not disclose battery capacity, noting on its website that the iPhone 14 Pro Max will last for 29 hours of video playback. However, a little later, experts found out that these are all the same 4323 mAh.

But the trick, as usual, is not in the capacity, but in the processor: the Cupertino team worked on the energy efficiency of the A16 Bionic – we wrote about this earlier in our material. Everything is known in comparison, so it was decided to compare the top-end iPhone with the Pixel 7 Pro, which has a 5000 mAh battery. In general, smartphones are very similar to each other – take a look at the table.

It would seem that the Pixel 7 Pro has increased battery life , and the battery capacity simply does not allow you to lose the iPhone 14 Pro Max. But Apple’s smartphone cannot be defeated by such simple methods, and the Pixel has its own problems. See what happened.

iPhone 14 Pro Max battery test

The experts at PhoneBuff already have a well-established scheme for years: they use a special robotic arm to launch applications so that testing is as transparent and unbiased as possible. On smartphones, they launched a phone call, YouTube, maps, Snapchat and other applications for 1 hour.

Both smartphones began to run out of battery already during a phone call: the iPhone 14 Pro Max lost 2%, and the Google Pixel 7 Pro lost 3%. But then the gap only widened: after entering text in the messenger, the battery charge of the Google smartphone decreased to 89%, while that of the iPhone decreased to 92% – it was from this process that the Apple smartphone began to outpace the Pixel. Then the lead of the iPhone only increased: by the end of scrolling through the feed in social networks, the iPhone had 74%, and the Pixel 7 Pro had 64%.

The Pixel 7 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max then spent 16 hours on standby, losing 8% and 7% of their charge, respectively. Interestingly, then watching a video on YouTube took 8% from both smartphones, but during games, smartphones were discharged in different ways: the Pixel 7 Pro lost 14%, after which the charge level dropped to 33, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max was discharged by only 10 %, after which he had another 49%. Can you imagine, almost half the charge!

In the future, both when using navigation maps and when listening to music, the battery consumption of the Pixel 7 Pro was higher by 2-4% – it would seem a trifle. Only now, the iPhone 14 Pro Max approached the launch of Snapchat, having a threefold advantage in charge – 31% versus 12!

Actually, this was enough to drain the Pixel 7 Pro to the end, while the iPhone had 21% of the charge left! Fiction! Moreover, the battery life of the Pixel 7 Pro was not even enough to complete the Snapchat test – exactly 19 minutes before the end, it turned off.

Which smartphone with a powerful battery to buy in 2022

Well, the Google Pixel 7 Pro is positioned not as a gaming smartphone, however, in the PhoneBuff test, it was “finished off” not only by this: social networks, web surfing, mail browsing, using photo editors and even navigation maps – a smartphone from Google is quickly discharged due to elementary functions!

Yes, it is productive, but the development team will still have to work on the energy efficiency of the Tensor processor so that it does not consume battery as much. Or is the whole problem in the gluttonous Android 13 too? The question is rhetorical.

However, not everything is so bad: the time of using the iPhone 14 Pro Max was 11 hours 44 minutes and 16 hours of standby time. The Pixel 7 Pro lasted 9 hours and 41 minutes of use and 16 hours of standby for a total of 25 hours and 41 minutes. 2 hours difference is already better than the Samsung Galaxy last year , but the iPhone is still far away.
