Google still won’t learn how to make hassle-free smartphones. The Pixel 7 Pro just came out, and it already has its first major screen problem

The curse of Google Pixel does not seem to pass by the new smartphones. The Pixel 7 has just entered the market, and there is already evidence of the first serious problem.

A senior technical editor at XDA-Developers, who has been using the Pixel 7 Pro since the beginning of the week, noticed that the device is using too much power when the screen brightness is at or close to maximum. In general, the Pixel 7 Pro has better battery life than its predecessor, but for some reason, with a strong increase in brightness, the smartphone starts to discharge very quickly. Disproportionately fast relative to the discharge process under other conditions.

To make it clearer, the source gives this example: after three hours of using the phone at medium brightness, the battery sat down by 50%, while in bright sunlight it sat down by 10% in 15 minutes.

It turned out that the problem is not only specifically in this instance of the Pixel 7 Pro. Other members of the XDA team have confirmed that they are seeing the same issues.

Then XDA experts took measurements and found that at a brightness of 600 cd / m2 Pixel 7 Pro screen consumption is 3.5-4W, and at 1000 cd/m2 the indicator rises to 6 watts. For comparison, the Galaxy S22 Ultra under the same conditions, the power consumption is respectively 2 and 4 watts.

The Pixel 6 Pro at maximum brightness also consumes about 4W, but its screen brightness reaches a maximum of 800cd/m2that is, with an increase to 1000 cd / m2 consumption would be much higher. That is, the Pixel 6 Pro apparently had a similar problem, but it did not manifest itself so critically due to the not so high maximum display brightness.

XDA experts have tested all four of their Pixel 7 Pros, and also asked their colleagues to check the devices. All had identical results, which means that this behavior is the norm for Google’s flagship. It is not yet clear whether the company will be able to fix something with software updates.

The creators of Nothing Phone 1 want to compete with

The company Nothing, which released a smartphone with a transparent back panel Nothing Phone (1), plans to soon enter the US market and compete with Apple there.

Carl Pei, the co-founder of Chinese mobile phone maker OnePlus, is in talks with US carriers to launch a new smartphone in the US, Pei revealed in an interview with CNBC without naming any carrier. So far, the company has only released its smartphone in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, but not in the US or Canada.

The reason we didn’t launch in the US is because you need more tech support to support all carriers and their unique customizations they need to do on top of Android. We felt we weren’t ready before. We are currently in talks with some carriers in the US about a possible launch of a future product there.
