Google Pixel 7 Pro challenges among top tier of smartphone pantheon

In the ever-evolving arms race to produce the best smartphone camera, Google isn't backing down. With the Google Pixel 7 Pro, it continues its efforts to keep pace with the likes of iPhone and Galaxy in the sharpshooter sweepstakes.

Blessed with a telephoto lens that acts as icing on a cake layered with a 48MP telephoto camera juiced by a Tensor G2 chip.

Even from a distance, you can nail images at 12.5MP -- a minor sacrifice from the 48MP non-zoom revolution -- that lets you snag images from afar that make it seem as though you were up close.

Combined with the presence of the background-cleansing Magic Eraser seen in the Google Pixel 6 Pro and Google Pixel 6A, the shooting suite excels in distance, up-close, portrait and selfies.

The processor fuels much of what makes the Pixel 7 Pro stand out from the crowd. Juggling heavy data use from the likes of apps, games and video with nimble grace, the device is a beast that can take on the demands of your workday, offtime and communications needs. It hummed with effortless flow on T-Mobile's razor-sharp 5G network..

It all shines bright on a radiant 6.8-inch OLED display that stuns with a 120Hz refresh rate at a top peak brightness of 1,750 nits. At max brightness, you won't even have much of a need of a flashlight.

The one sacrifice is the battery life, which at times pays the price for the demands you find yourself putting the phone through. The presence of induction charging makes it easy to plop on a desk charger for a juice-up amidst your whirlwind of multitasking.

Robust and brawny without being imposing, the phone's light form factor makes it less taxing than you'd think on your hand. But that won't stop you from cradling it in your arms like the prized possession it proves to be.
