The Pixel 8 Pro’s display trumps Apple and Samsung in power efficiency


On the surface, Google’s Pixel 8 Pro looks like a regular phone. In fact, it’s almost kind of boring, but if you’re looking for a phone that could potentially have great battery life, then the Pixel 8 Pro could be a smartphone worth considering.

This is because according to tests conducted on the Pixel 8 Pro’s display, it has been found to be the most power efficient display available right now, or at least one of the most power efficient. This is compared against its predecessor, the Pixel 7 Pro, and also against the iPhone 14 Pro Max and the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.

According to the tests, the Pixel 8 Pro hit its peak brightness of 960 nits while only consuming 3.0W of power, whereas the Pixel 7 Pro more than doubled its energy consumption at 6.4W to hit similar brightness levels. The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and iPhone 14 Pro Max are actually not too far behind, but the Pixel 8 Pro still takes the cake.

Of course, display power efficiency is only one aspect that contributes to overall battery life, but it might be an important point of consideration for some who are looking to squeeze as much battery life out of their phones as possible.
