this excellent smartphone is already on sale

The Pixel 6 is currently Google’s affordable flagship. It’s not as premium as the Pro model, but it’s still a great all-rounder, especially in photos. Especially since today, its value for money becomes even more interesting, going from 649 euros to only 599 euros.

This year, Google has made quite a few changes for its new 2021 smartphones, from design to technical sheet. The Pixel 6 is therefore very different from its predecessors, but rest assured, it is still an excellent choice for taking pictures, because it is still the very DNA of the brand. And if we are not used to seeing the recent devices of the Mountain View firm sold off shortly after their release, it is however the case today thanks to an immediate discount of 50 euros.

What to remember from the Pixel 6

  • A 90 Hz Full HD + OLED display
  • An excellent camera
  • 5G compatibility
  • Android 12 native

Instead of 649 euros when it was launched at the end of October, the Google Pixel 6 with 128 GB of storage is now available on sale at only 599 euros on the RED by SFR online store. As a reminder, you can buy the smartphone on its own without having to take a package from the operator.

A king of photography at this price

The Google Pixel 6 represents the best compromise for anyone who wants to take excellent photos on a smartphone for a budget of less than 600 euros today. For this, it is equipped with a dual camera with a 50-megapixel wide-angle sensor on one side and a 12-megapixel (114 °) ultra-wide-angle sensor on the other. This composition is not as complete as the Pro model, where one might regret the absence of a telephoto lens, but the result is already very good, especially with the help of the laser autofocus sensor, the spectral flicker sensor and optical image stabilization. In short, you will not miss any shot, especially since it is possible to personalize each image captured thanks to Google’s algorithms, which can in particular erase people in the background or blur moving faces. For selfies, there is an 8 megapixel sensor.

What is the Google Tensor chip worth?

With its new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, this is the first time that the Mountain View firm has decided not to integrate a Qualcomm Snapdragon chip in one of its smartphones. This year, the Californian company has in fact preferred to manage both software and hardware at the same time by developing its own in-house chip: the Google Tensor. This processor emphasizes artificial intelligence to offer new features with Google services. We can cite instant translation in offline mode, for example, or the new possibilities allowed on the camera application. The raw performance is on the other hand lower on the benchmarks compared to an iPhone 13 Pro equipped with the A15 chip or a Xiaomi Mi 11 equipped with the Snapdragon 888, but that’s not why the Pixel 6 (with its 8 GB of RAM) has performance issues. We just feel a bad optimization in the game, where some titles from the Play Store do not exceed 30 fps, but the overall user experience is perfectly fluid on a daily basis, and all the more pleasant to use with the new version Android 12 installed natively. on the smartphone.

Assertive design and correct autonomy

The design has indeed changed a lot compared to the Pixel 5 last year, evidenced by the huge strip crossing the back from left to right that houses the various photo sensors. Beyond aesthetics, this allows the Pixel 6 to be stable when placed on a table. The bubble in the screen is no longer in the left corner, but centered at the top. And speaking of the screen, this one has grown compared to the previous model, this time reaching 6.4 inches to definitely ditch the compact aspect. Too bad, but the panel is of good quality, since AMOLED in Full HD + at 90 Hz. The fingerprint sensor is housed just below and it is rather responsive.

When it comes to battery life, the Pixel 6 is counting on a day’s endurance with its 4,614 mAh battery and 30W fast charging, taking the phone from 0 to 50% in 30 minutes, whether in wired or wireless.
