Choosing a top of the range is never easy. There is a lot of money to invest and the differences are narrowing. Today we compare three of them from every point of view, from ergonomics to price through display, autonomy, performance, software (the classic iOS vs Android challenge will never end but that’s right) and of course .. the camera!

Materials – Aesthetics – Touch & Feel

  • iPhone 14 Pro Max: with its well 240 grams is the heaviest of the three. Despite this, however, it is the most comfortable to hold, due to its square edges.
  • Galaxy S22 Ultra: the Samsung is somewhere in between, it weighs 228 grams and it’s a little bit slippery.
  • Pixel 7 Pro: Google has managed to build the lightest but unfortunately it also has a soap effect. 212 grams.


  • iPhone 14 Pro Max: display OLED from 6.7 ″ to 120Hz with a pixel density of 460 PPI and very high maximum brightness, let’s talk about 2,000 nits peak. Rating: 9.5.
  • Galaxy S22 Ultra: display AMOLED curved from 6.8 ″ to 120Hz with pixel density of 500PPI peak brightness of 1,750 nits. Rating: 9.5.
  • Pixel 7 Pro: display AMOLED curved from 6.7 ″ to 120Hz with pixel density of 512PPI and peak brightness reaching 1,500 nits. Rating: 9.


  • iPhone 14 Pro Max: battery from 4,323 mAh with charge a 27W and wireless at 15W. Autonomy excellent, in the evening with still the 40%.
  • Galaxy S22 Ultra: battery from 5,000 mAh with charge a 45W and wireless at 15W. Autonomy discreet, in the evening with the 15%.
  • Pixel 7 Pro: battery from 5,000 mAh with charge a 30W and wireless at 15W. Autonomy extremely variable based on usage, let’s say on average 10% to make a comparison with the other two but you could still arrive with 40% if you only use it under WiFi or not get there at all in the evening.

Hardware and Performance

With three top of the range of this caliber it makes no sense to talk about performance. All three run very fast and very fluid. The most powerful if we really want to look at the technical data sheets is Apple’s A16 Bionic (4nm), followed by the Exynos 2200 (4nm) and then by the Google Tensor G2 of which there is no officially declared data but which should be at 5nm . In everyday use, however, nothing changes.


  • iPhone 14 Pro Max: Apple is the queen of the ecosystem. Mac, watch, headphones or even AirTags, everything is there and everything works great. iOS is also vastly superior to Android on social networks, which are better optimized. Its flaw is that to favor autonomy it blocks uploads in the background so if you have to upload a story on Instagram or send a file on Telegram, remember not to close the app. The support is also very long, 5 years of both major updates and “patches” even if they are not called that here, for all iPhone models.
  • Galaxy S22 Ultra: The ecosystem is certainly not lacking here either, indeed, it reaches up to household appliances and Samsung is the number 1 in terms of updates in the Android world, sometimes even before Google itself with the Pixels. Promised 5 years of support and 4 major updates.
  • Pixel 7 Pro: Google relies heavily on AI. Sometimes useful, sometimes less so, but on the Pixels it usually is with many interesting functions for the camera for example and they are always very pleasant to use. Only 3 major releases but still 5 years of support.


They are gods top cameraphone and with all three you will have a great time from this point of view. Specifically, however, I prefer iPhone for the portrait effect, for night shots and also for videos, albeit slightly. Instead I prefer the Samsung as for the optical zoom having a 10X telephoto lens and for the front camera while the Pixel stands out in macros.

Music and telephone audio reproduction

iPhone And Pixel have the dual SIM but with a nanoSIM plus one eSIM, then the electronic one, the Galaxy it is the only one to have a true physical dual SIM.

The audio quality is very good on all but for me, having to decree a winner, I would say iPhone. The same thing applies to calls, with iPhone I can talk in the car with the speakerphone even when there is more noise than the other two.

Conclusions and Prices

  • iPhone 14 Pro Max: its price is the highest, let’s talk about well 1,619 euros for the 256GB. Who do I recommend it to? To the creators who work with videos and also to those who work with social networks. Instagram in particular. But I would choose the 6.1 ″ Pro not Max.
  • Galaxy S22 Ultra: it costs a little less, 1,379 euros (256GB) and has the pen, a more unique than rare element, on the camera side it is the most complete due to the 10X optical zoom, it is my favorite Android, even for ecosystem, both hardware and software. PS. If yours gives you problems of overheating, insist with assistance to have it changed, I am convinced that only some specimens suffer from it.
  • Pixel 7 Pro: beats the other two but costs “only” 999 euros, always the 256GB. The quality / price ratio is therefore the best but I would go on the smooth Pixel 7, which costs even less, is more manageable and practically loses only the telephoto lens. To keep in mind.
