In our comparison, we will pit the specifications of the Pixel 6 against Apple’s iPhone 13 (review) and Samsung’s Galaxy S21.

For performance, all three smartphones use different chips. The Pixel 6 and iPhone 13 use custom chips, while S21 opts for a Snapdragon 888 or Exynos 2100 SoC, depending on your region. We already know that Apple’s A15 Bionic is arguably the best mobile SoC around and is faster than the Snapdragon 888 and Exynos 2100. Benchmarks of Google’s custom Tensor chip isn’t available just yet, but it is said to be 80 percent faster than the Snapdragon 765G on the Pixel 5. However, Google’s focus seems to be more on Machine Learning.


In terms of the displays, all three phones have OLED panels, although the panel on the iPhone has a slightly higher resolution. However, the Pixel 6 and the Galaxy S21 both feature a high refresh rate panel. Additionally, the iPhone 13’s screen also comes with Dolby Vision support.

Battery and Charging

In terms of battery life, the two Android phones have larger batteries than the iPhone 13. However, battery consumption works differently on iOS and if Apple’s claims are to be believed the iPhone 13 battery offers excellent battery life. But the Pixel 6’s large battery will likely deliver the most battery life of all the three phones. All three phones feature both wired and wireless fast-charging support and none offer adapters in the box.


For optics, the iPhone 13 and Pixel 6 feature a dual-rear camera setup, while the Galaxy S21 opts for a triple-camera setup. The Pixel 6’s new 50 MP primary sensor might have the edge over the iPhone 13 and Galaxy S21’s 12 MP main cameras, but it is too early to tell, and software will play a major role in the overall image quality for all three devices. For now, the only thing we can say without a doubt is that the Galaxy S21 will offer better zoom capabilities as a result of its 64 MP telephoto camera.

Design and Build

Design is anyone’s game. The Pixel 6 has undergone the biggest design change since the previous generations, while Samsung made minor redesigns to create a more refined look for the S21 series. Not much has on the design front for the iPhone 13, but it does have a smaller notch than the previous generation. Additionally, both the Pixel 6 and iPhone 13 opt for a glass front and back and an aluminium frame, while the S21 features a plastic back.
