This year, with the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, Google will finally introduce real high-end smartphones that do a lot right. In one point in particular, Google is clearly stepping up with the Pixel 6, while Samsung is developing in the other direction. It’s about the batteries.
Google has increased the battery in the Pixel 6 quite a bit
Next week the wait for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro is over. Then Google will present its two new top smartphones. Much has already been revealed in advance, now it also affects the capacity of the batteries. in the Pixel 6 has a 4,614 mAh battery installed be while im Pixel 6 Pro one 5,003 mAh battery is used (source: Alex Dobie). For comparison: The Pixel 5 has a 4,080 mAh battery. So Google is doing a lot with the new generation and should increase the battery life noticeably.
But not only the comparison with the previous Pixel 5 is interesting. The comparison with the upcoming competition in the form of the Galaxy S22, S22 Plus and S22 Ultra is even more interesting. Samsung has reduced the size of the batteries compared to the Galaxy S21 generation. in the Galaxy S22 should only have a 3,700 mAh battery built in, while the Plus model of the Galaxy S22 uses a 4,500 mAh battery. Only the Galaxy S22 Ultra should keep its 5,000 mAh battery.
So while Samsung repeats old mistakes with batteries that are too small, it makes Google it right with the Pixel 6 smartphones. There are also 120 Hz displays with LTPO technology and their own tensor processor, which should be very efficient. So the new Google phones could offer pretty good runtimes.

Google and Apple are on the right track
Samsung is pursuing one with the new Galaxy S22 smartphones strange strategy. While Google and Apple are enlarging the batteries of their smartphones and thus increasing the runtimes, Samsung is basically doing the opposite. This will have a negative effect on performance.
