Xiaomi 13 Pro vs Google Pixel 7 Pro

Today's challenge takes place at Android between two of the flagship products of the best brands of the moment. On the one hand we have Xiaomi 13 Pro , top of the range from the Chinese company, while on the other Pixel 7 Pro , the official Google smartphone in its most expensive version but complete with cutting-edge components.

While Xiaomi can count on the optimizations and services of its MIUI, the Google device appears to be specially optimized by the Mountain View company on proprietary hardware, for an Android Stock experience at the best of possibilities. Between the two devices, the photographic sector of Xiaomi 13 Pro particularly stands out in collaboration with Leica, which is able to return videos and photographs of the highest level. Certainly, however, the price is significantly higher than the Google device.


We remind you that these articles are not used to decree a winner, but rather to show you the differences between the two products in case you are evaluating the purchase, in order to help you choose based to your needs and budget. These two technology giants are fully equipped with the best technologies around. Let's find out the technical characteristics together.

Aesthetic differences

Comparison of cameras

Xiaomi 13 Pro mounts a room sector clearly more advanced than its competitor. The Xiaomi device mounts 3 rear sensors respectively of 50.3, 50 and 50 MP with focal lengths of f/1.9 + f/2.0 + f/2.2, while Pixel 7 Pro mounts three sensors respectively of 50MP, 48MP and 12MP with focal from f/1.9, f/3.5 and f/2.2 respectively. Despite everything, however, the Google device enjoys a 5x zoom, against that of Xiaomi of only 3.2x. Both devices are capable of taking shots that overall will not disappoint you, given the high quality of the sensors of both phones. In particular, the collaboration with Leica on Xiaomi 13 Pro allows photos of the highest level, also thanks to the 1-inch main sensor and its floating lens mechanism on the telephoto lens, capable of allowing focusing from just 10cm away. The excellent photographic sector of the device will allow you to take very detailed photos in RAW format and in poor night light conditions. In short, overall, the objective difference between the two devices is felt, but you will be able to appreciate it better if you are professionals or enthusiasts of the photographic sector.
