Google Pixel 8 Pro review - Powerful Android smartphone with seven years of updates

Impressive AI. This year, the Google Pixel 8 Pro shows improvements in many places, particularly with some overall optimizations of the cameras. But the secret highlight are the many new AI features of the smartphone and the seven years of guaranteed updates. Find out everything in our test.

The Google Pixel 8 Pro is the direct successor of the Pixel 7 Pro, with only a gentle update of the design. As the new chipset, the Tensor G3 is used, and Google made some powerful improvements in the cameras, particularly with the ultrawide angle lens, which now offers a hefty 48 MP.

The storage equipment was also improved, and the Pixel 8 Pro now offers up to 512 GB in Germany. At this point, there is even a 1-TB version available in the US for ~$1,400. Unfortunately, Google has also increased the prices significantly:

Pixel 8 Pro Pixel 7 Pro Difference
128 GB 1,099 Euros (~$1,175) 899 Euros (~$962) +200 Euros (~$214, +22.25%)
256 GB 1,159 Euros (~$1,240) 999 Euros (~$1,068) +160 Euros (~$171, +16.02%)
512 GB 1,299 Euros (~$1,389) - -

With these prices, Google is approaching the flagships of the competitors such as the Galaxy S23 Ultra, the Honor Magic5 Pro, or the Xiaomi 13 Pro. On the other hand, the Pixel 8 Pro is also the first Android smartphone with an update guarantee of seven years. So is it a good deal after all?

Case - The Pixel 8 Pro is covered by matte glass

While the Google Pixel 8 Pro became slightly more compact, it now weighs 1 gram (~0.035 oz) more. Although at a thickness of 8.8 mm (~0.346 in), it is slightly slimmer than the Pixel 7 Pro with its 8.9 mm (~0.35 in), if you add the camera, the 8 Pro is thicker than its predecessor, reaching a thickness of up to 12 mm (~0.47 in).

The combination of polished aluminum and matte Corning Gorilla Glas Victus 2 on the back gives it a very elegant and high-quality appearance. With the tight and even gaps between the materials, the workmanship also leaves a clean impression. The Google smartphone endures attempts of warping it without producing any creaking noises. 

The Pixel 8 Pro is dust and waterproof according to the IP68 certification. It is available in the colors "Bay" (bright blue), "Obsidian" (black), and "Porcelain" (beige), with our test unit being the latter version.

Equipment - Google smartphone with USB 3.2 and UWB

Google doesn't give any detailed specifications on the USB-3.2 port in the Pixel 8 Pro. The transfer speed of 103.73 MB/s in the copy test indicates that this might be USB 3.2 (Gen. 1), even if it is a comparably slow implementation. Wired display output is also not supported. Connected storage can be formatted either in FAT32 or exFAT.

In addition, Bluetooth 5.3, NFC, and UWB are also included. While an always-on display function is supported, it is deactivated by default.

Software - Pixel 8 series get 7 years of updates

The Pixel 8 Pro is delivered with Android 14 and will get seven years of both security patches and version updates - outstanding!

The Pixel 8 Pro also brings some innovations that are all supported by machine-learning algorithms or AI. Those include the Magic Editor, AI Wallpaper, Video Boost, and the Audio Magic Eraser. The new Night Sight video function, which will be added later, is supposed to raise videos recorded in the dark to a new level. All thanks to Google AI. But the only downside is that those functions are not implemented on the smartphone itself but computed in the cloud (we report). This also goes for GBoard proofreading, which is currently only available for the English language.

Other established functions such as the Magic Eraser or GBoard Smart Replies are implemented directly on the smartphone, though. There is no preinstalled software from third-party vendors.

AI Wallpaper cannot be used without an Internet connection.

Communication and GNSS - Decent locating and wide frequency band support

The Google Pixel 8 Pro supports Wi-Fi 7 including 6-GHz WLAN. In combination with our Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 reference router, it reaches very high and stable transfer speeds.

The mobile communication connection succeeds with 5G-Sub6 at best, with mmWave continuing to be reserved for the US market. In city surroundings, the reception characteristics are good and don't give any reason for complaint. With its wide support of frequency bands, the Pixel smartphone should be able to get a good reception in any country of the world.

Outdoors

The Pixel 8 Pro masters dual-band GNSS and supports all the global satellite navigation systems as well as NavIC. With this, it is able to determine its location very quickly and accurately outdoors. Indoors, it takes hardly any longer, with an accuracy that is still good.

We compare the locating capabilities of the Google smartphone with those of a Garmin Venu 2 during a long walk. The difference in the overall route lengths determined by the devices is only 10 meters (~33 ft). Both devices have some problems determining their location in a park where there are a lot of trees blocking them, and the smartwatch does a better job here. But the Pixel also delivers a good performance on roads.

Telephone Functions and Voice Quality

You can insert a physical Nano-SIM card into the Google Pixel 8 Pro, and those who need dual-SIM can also set up an additional eSIM. Alternatively, you can also set up two eSIMs. If you use dual-SIM, you can enable the system to automatically change the data connection depending on the quality of the reception. Functions such as VoLTE and WLAN calls are supported, but SIP account control is not integrated into the system.

Using the earpiece, the voice quality of the Google Pixel 8 Pro is very natural, and most of the annoying noises are reliably filtered out. Even though with many voices in the background, they are eliminated well most of the time, the voice of the user will then also sound thinner. But the Pixel is overwhelmed by loud street noise. Speaker mode works well in quiet surroundings, and the microphones have a decent range.

Cameras - The Pixel 8 Pro comes with Ultra HDR

The front camera of the Google Pixel 8 Pro uses a 10.5 MP lens that also offers autofocus. Videos can be recorded at most in Ultra HD resolution at up to 60 FPS, and if you want to record in HDR, you are limited to 30 FPS. Selfies also look good in low light and there are extensive options for processing them.

The main camera uses the same powerful 50-MP Samsung sensor as the predecessor. The camera setup is completed by the new ultrawide angle sensor with 48 MP and a 5x optical zoom that has now become nominally more light-sensitive with an f/2.8 aperture. Both the main and the telephoto sensor are able to use optical image stabilization (OIS).

The pictures taken with the main camera look really good. Only the autofocus doesn't always work perfectly in difficult situations. Even in low-light conditions, the results still look good, which is due to the night mode. Our test image needs an exposure of about 3 seconds, which still works well holding the phone in the hand. The ultrawide angle lens has improved significantly, even if some details can look muddy at full size enlargement. Since the sensor can also be used for macro pictures, those also look good.

The optical zoom allows for up to 5x and digital zoom goes up to 30x. Of course, the pure digital zoom isn't perfect, but compared to those of the competitors, the pictures look really good. Starting from 15x zoom, there is an additional digital view finder. At this zoom level, the electronic image stabilization (EIS) also comes in powerfully. While it initially seems very stable, some smaller movements with the camera are implemented with some delay, which also goes for the Live View. This surely could have been implemented better.

Google advertises many AI functions for the Pixel 8 Pro. We already know the Magic Eraser for photos from the Pixel 7 Pro. Now the smartphone is also able to correct faces in group pictures, so no one will look away or have their eyes closed in the wrong moment anymore. To correct this, the phone will search for other pictures on the device and those created by Top Photo, and you can then simply replace the face. This works really well but also takes quite a while (10 to 15 seconds).

An additional feature is the Magical Editor, which only works when the pictures were first saved in the Google Cloud. There, persons or objects can then be masked specifically, in order to move them to other places, enlarge them, or make them smaller. Most of the time, the automatic selection works fairly well, but sometimes it can also happen that some parts of the person aren't captured completely. This feature works better and simpler with an iPhone and even without a cloud connection.

With Android 14, Ultra HDR is also used for photos for the first time, so it isn't an exclusive feature only for Pixel smartphones. The corresponding information for this is added to the picture, allowing compatible programs to transmit it to an HDR-capable display, so that it can adjust the brightness for the image areas correspondingly. With the right output devices, this leads to even more vibrant photos.

Videos can be recorded in Ultra HD and 16:9 format at up to 60 FPS. Those who want to record HDR directly can choose between 30 and 24 FPS. In addition, the Pixel 8 Pro offers the Softening and Panning modes. While the first can create soft and blurry backgrounds (max. Full HD, 24 FPS), the latter allows you to create stable panning shots (max. Ultra HD, 30 FPS) using an automatic time lapse.

We continue to test the camera of the Pixel 8 Pro under controlled light conditions. The recording of the test chart is very detailed without any exaggerated over-sharpening. 

The colors of the ColorChecker chart are reproduced without any pronounced outliers, although cyan comes close to the limit, and the white balance turns out fairly warm.

Accessories and Warranty - A slim box for the Pixel 8 Pro

The Google Pixel 8 Pro is delivered without a charger again, and the rest of the box contents remain unchanged: In addition to a USB-C cable, the box contains an OTG adapter (USB-C to USB-A) and a SIM tool. Optionally, you can also get a 30-Watt charger for 29 Euros (~$31) and a Gen. 2 Pixel Stand for 79 Euros (~$84).

Google offers a 24-month warranty for its smartphone.

Input Devices and Operation - Pixel smartphone with IR thermometer

You can give inputs to the Pixel 8 Pro via the capacitive touchscreen, which implements them quickly and accurately and offers very good sliding characteristics.  The two physical keys sit tightly in the frame and offer a short and crisp stroke.

Next to the camera setup in the back is an infrared sensor that can be used to measure surface temperatures. Google explicitly mentions that this is not a thermometer to measure body temperature. To get results that are as accurate as possible, you should choose the surface material carefully. Once you do that, the results are at a similar level as those of our Voltcraft IR-260, showing temperatures that are only between 0.5 and 1.5 °C (0.9 - 2.7 °F) lower.

An optical fingerprint sensor in the display provides biometric security. The recognition rates are decent most of the time, and it unlocks the smartphone fairly quickly. In addition, you can also use 2D face recognition, which works faster but isn't as secure.

The linear vibration motor provides powerful and attractive haptic feedback.

Display - Google reduces the resolution

Subpixel structure
Subpixel structure

Google has reduced the display resolution of the Pixel 8 Pro compared to the predecessor. However, this will hardly be noticeable considering a pixel density of 490 PPI. The LTPO-OLED panel is now significantly brighter. Google speaks about up to 1,600 cd/m² (HDR) and 2,400 cd/m² (top brightness). The refresh rate is automatically adjusted between 1 and 120 Hz by the system.

In the measurements, our test unit achieves a maximum brightness of 1,510 cd/m² with pure white display contents and activated brightness sensor. With an even distribution of bright and dark areas (APL18), it reaches up to 2,202 cd/m² and in the HDR reproduction, even 2,363 cd/m². If you only adjust the brightness manually, you can get up to 985 cd/m².

Unfortunately, the OLED flickering of the display doesn't have a very high frequency. Using an oscilloscope, we measure a constant 120 Hz with a stable amplitude at minimal display brightness. Above a level of 43% brightness, the frequency doubles to 240 Hz. Those who are sensitive to the flickering of displays can expect some problems here.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 120 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 120 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 120 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18716 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Measurement series at fixed zoom level with various brightness settings

The color reproduction is convincing in the Calman analysis. In the grayscale, only the two brightest white tones show a very slight green tint, and in the colors, there are no noticeable color differences that can be discerned without a measurement device.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
1.07 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.568 ms rise
↘ 0.504 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
1.85 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.024 ms rise
↘ 0.822 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 4 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (34.3 ms).

Outdoors, the display contents of the Google Pixel 8 Pro can be easily read even on sunny days, so that you won't have to expect any limitations when using it outside.

The viewing angle stability of the OLED display is really good, even from very steep viewing angles. The brightness hardly decreases, and there is only a hardly noticeable green veil on the contents.

Performance - The Tensor G3 limps behind the competitors

The Pixel 8 Pro uses the inhouse Google Tensor G3 SoC, which is accompanied by 12 GB of working memory. The chipset is able to use a total of up to nine CPU cores, one of which is a Cortex X3 representing the most powerful unit with a clock speed of up to 2.91 GHz. The SoC is manufactured by Samsung in the 4-nm process.

In terms of CPU performance, the Tensor G3 is unable to keep up with the Apple A17 Pro, the Dimensity 9200+, or the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, clearly coming in last in the high-end area. Only in the current Geekbench 6.2, the Pixel 8 Pro places ahead of the Xiaomi 13T Pro with the MediaTek chipset.

Even if Android runs smoothly in everyday operation, the Pixel 8 Pro doesn't do particularly well in the system benchmarks, where it also only places last in our comparison field. In summary, at this point the Tensor G3 performs more at the level of a modern high-class SoC such as the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2.

And if you think that the Pixel 8 Pro will finally catch up in the AI benchmarks, you will also be disappointed. In Procyon, it is even slower than its predecessor, and in AIMark and Geekbench ML, it is only minimally faster.

The Google Pixel 8 Pro uses an integrated ARM Mali-G715 MP7 as graphics unit. Even though this is faster than the G710 MP7 in the Pixel 7 Pro, it is slower than the competitors in all areas.

Since Google doesn't use the Immortalis version of the G715 here, raytracing is also not supported.
