Google Pixel 3 vs Pixel 6 Pro: Photos

I upgraded to a Pixel 6 because my Pixel 3’s charging plug no longer worked, the glass on the back was shattered, and battery life was down to 2-3 hours. I decided to splurge on the Pro version primarily because of its superior cameras.

But while I loved the photos the 3 takes, I’m wasn’t as happy with the 6 Pro. I don’t know enough about photography to be able to articulate why I liked the 3’s photo better, other than to say the colors and shadows were richer and deeper. The 6’s photos were clearer and more detailed, but I generally just liked the 3’s better.

Then I uploaded three sets of samples into this blog post and discovered that most of the differences were due to the displays on the two phones. Viewing them on my MacBook Pro, I think I probably like the Pixel 6 at least as much as the Pixel 3….except for the photo of the hand below.

Here are unedited photos from each so you can decide for yourself.

  1. Yes, I am his (older) brother. Thanks David, these are interesting. As you know, after talking to you I have the same Pixel 6 Pro and am also about to send in my Pixel 3 as a trade-in (for the princely sum of about $42). I like the 6’s back yard shot better. It is a wider lens, it seems, and the edges are in better focus than the 3. I think the contrast and colors in the area behind the trees in the center is better. I am not certain enough of this to declare one better. The hand picture is darker with the 6 and I think better exposed. It seems more real with more detail. The nail polish colors are the same to me. I may try this tomorrow before I send the 3 back. Thanks.

  2. I have owned Pixel 6 Pro since a very long time. I have one suggestion. Get it because it is lovely.
