Before launch, many people worried that Google’s Tensor chip might not have what it takes to compete with Qualcomm Snapdgraon and A15 Bionic. Based on our Google Pixel 6 benchmarks, however, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro perform fairly well on the 3DMark graphics benchmark, meeting or beating the Galaxy S21 Ultra. And on our own video encoding test using Adobe Premiere Rush, the Pixel 6 series is even faster than the Galaxy S21. But, yes, the iPhone 13 is still the performance champion.

If you’re wondering how long the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro last on a charge, check out our Pixel 6 battery life test story. This is in our opinion the biggest downside for both phones. . At least on 5G, both handsets struggled in our web browsing test, with the standard Pixel 6 running for just over 8 hours and the Pixel 6 Pro being just below that mark.

Other flagship phones last 10 hours or more. The good news is that you can get longer battery life on the Pixel 6 if you turn 5G off.
