The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are finally here after months of waiting, and the phones look like iterative upgrades over the Pixel 6 family. But we also have a few more substantial upgrades like more camera features, more AI-powered capabilities, and longer range zoom for the Pixel 7 Pro.

What do Android Authority readers think of the Pixel 7 series, though? We posed this question last week in the wake of the Google launch event, and here’s what you told us.

Pixel 7 series: Hot or not?

Results

We posted the poll on October 6 a short while after the conclusion of the Google launch event, and it turns out that you really like new smartphones. Almost 87% of surveyed readers thought the Pixel 7 series was “hot.”

We didn’t see a lot of comments elaborating on this decision, but at least one reader pointed to the Pixel 7 Pro’s camera experience. Another reader also felt it was hot, although this was subject to the out-of-the-box experience being great.

Otherwise, ~13% of respondents reckoned that the Pixel 7 series wasn’t hot stuff at all. We’re guessing these readers voted this way due to the Pixel 7’s similarities to the Pixel 6 family. It’s also worth noting that the Pixel 7 line lacks features like fast wired charging, while the Tensor G2 isn’t a huge upgrade on paper over the original Tensor.

Comments

  • Aashish: I like the updates on the phone but I do wish they had kept the camera bar like the pixel 6. I really liked the all black glass bar over the aluminium thing implemented this year.
  • Rick45TX: slightly overpriced for a rehash of the 6.
  • Bubba Jones: Pixel 7Pro camera is outstanding. Cellphone cameras for casual photographers and photo enthusiasts are excellent devices producing quality images. The cost of purchasing a DSLR or Mirrorless camera with extra lens, compared to purchasing a capable cellphone camera is becoming more difficult to justify.
  • Stanley Kubrick: I voted “hot” but it will all depend on how well they perform OOB. I did a preorder for the 1st time in my life. Fingers crossed!
