Smartphone Battery Performance Score

and Battery Results

We have designed and developed Battery Performance Labels

to help Smartphone users.


Translated into the ViserMark Labels displayed below are the

battery test results for the Google Pixel 7 Pro.

ViserMark Labels for the Google Pixel 7 Pro smartphone
 

Look at the review by ViserMark based on the results during testing.

You can find the full results of our battery performance testing below:


Smartphone Battery Performance Overall Score:

ViserMark Label for battery performance indicating 32/100

The Battery Performance Label shows a score between 0 and 100. It reflects the performance based on independent, repeatable, and rigorous testing.


Using various testing criteria, measured using real-life scenarios and live networks, results are collated with calculations from Battery Life, Power Efficiency, and Charging results that amount to the total score.


In the Flagship Tier (€700+). The Google Pixel 7 Pro achieved 32 out of 100 for battery performance; therefore, it is positioned in the bottom half of the table for battery performance scores compared with previous 2022 scores.


The Google Pixel 7 Pro compares very well with another Google Pixel 7 mobile phone. The Google Pixel 7 was recently tested by ViserMark and obtained just 2 points more with 34 out of 100. Although only gaining a slight margin on battery performance scores, the Google Pixel 7 is suited to people looking for better value and a slightly smaller smartphone to hold.


The Samsung S22 is also in the Flagship Tier (€700+) and has a higher battery performance score than both Google mobile phones, with 36 out of 100. When comparing this smartphone with the Google Pixel 7 Pro, Samsung launched the Galaxy S22 series almost a year ago in February 2022. With the pending release of the Samsung Galaxy S23 smartphone range, we look forward to delivering the battery performance reviews very shortly. So, how will the Google Pixel 7 Pro compare with the Samsung S23?

The Apple brand remains in the top places with 72 and 53 out of 100, respectively, for the Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max and Apple iPhone 13 Pro, which both have impressive overall battery performances in the Flagship Tier (€700+).

Battery Life


Battery Life - How long will this Smartphone battery last?


ViserMark Labels for battery life indicating 1.5 Days of Use or 37 hours

Look at our updated Battery Life ViserMark Label. This label displays the “Days-of-Use” in both actual days and provides even more accurate information in hours. It reflects the usage of a smartphone from a full charge.


When looking at the Flagship/Pro Tier, most devices can last for 1.5 days of usage, with the exceptions being the Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max with 3.5 days of battery life and the Apple iPhone 13 Pro with one day less, with 2.5 days of battery life.


The Google Pixel 7 has a lower battery capacity of 4355mAh than the Google Pixel 7 Pro, which has the typical 5000mAh. During our testing, ViserMark expected the Google Pixel 7 Pro to deliver better battery performance. Both devices achieved 1.5 days of usage, lower than other Flagship/Pro Tier smartphones we have tested.


Even though the Samsung S22 also delivers 1.5 days of usage, it has an even smaller battery capacity of only 3700mAh - remarkable!

Google does state that Pixel’s Adaptive Battery can last over 24 hours – and up to 72 hours when you turn on Extreme Battery Saver. However, this feature disables various features, including 5G connectivity. Our battery performance protocol ensures that we measure and evaluate key areas of user experience, with all default testing performed under strictly controlled conditions without Battery Saver features enabled.

Charging Times

ViserMark Label for battery charging indicating 3h22

Battery Charging Time - How long will this smartphone take to charge?


Time varies when charging different types and sizes of smartphone batteries. Expressed in Hours and Minutes.


Unfortunately, the Google Pixel 7 Pro has a slow charging time of 3 hours and 22 minutes, which exceeds that of the Google Pixel 7, which is 2 hours and 51 minutes, and the Samsung S22 takes 2 hours and 36 minutes. The Google Pixel 7 and the Google Pixel 7 Pro support 30W fast wired charging, but the maximum speed of wireless charging can vary.

Power Efficiency

ViserMark Label for battery efficiency indicating 1/5 leaves

Power Efficiency - How power efficient is this smartphone?

Maximising the smartphone performance while reducing the energy it consumes, with minimal impact on battery life.


Calculated using Battery Life and Battery Capacity and expressed in “Leaves", it reflects a rating between 1 being the least and 5 being the most power efficient.


Many Flagship/Pro smartphones are predicted to reach a rating of 1 out of 5 for battery efficiency. Included are the Google Pixel 7 and Samsung S22 smartphones. However, the Google Pixel 7 Pro falls short in its performance and has achieved only 0.5 out of 5 as a rating. Once again, the Apple brand leads with higher power efficiency devices.

Comparison of Smartphones in the Flagship/Pro Tier

The most battery-efficient smartphones will provide good battery life and reduce the number of times the battery will need to be charged, harming its longevity.

Annual Energy Consumption


ViserMark Label for Annual Energy Consumption indicating 4.4 kWh/Annum

Power Consumption - How much energy does this smartphone use?

All smartphones use energy, and although it is only a small amount, each smartphone varies in consumption.


The Google Pixel 7 Pro is calculated to use 4.4 kWh per annum, taken from the ViserMark Battery Performance testing. For the first time, end-users will see an objective benchmark across all devices on their expected annual electricity consumption.

 
 

Should I buy it?


The Google Pixel 7 Pro is a Flagship/Pro smartphone with feature-rich functionality, an excellent camera and high-end reliability and performance. Even though it carries a high price tag of $899, it remains a true competitor in the Flagship smartphone market.


It has improved photography features and uses Google Pixel software, offering secure and reliable performance. Even though it lacks connectivity and battery life performance, loyal Andriod users will still purchase the Google Pixel 7 Pro.


The Google Pixel 7 Pro is currently the best smartphone introduced by Google. Here at ViserMark, we look forward to comparing this smartphone review to the Apple iPhone 14, which will be available shortly.

my Pixel 7 doesn't take 2h51 to charge from 1% to 100% with the standard 30W charger it's about 2h flat with the phone on (and screen always on) so probably less if the phone is off or screen off. it's subject to throttling though so charging time may depend on the room temperature, wether you have a case (I do have the Google case). your mileage may vary. if I need to charge as quickly as possible I try to lay the case flat on a metal or glass table with the camera bump protruding out of the table which completely fixes the overheating issue and ensures the fastest charging possible. I guess putting the phone on the scree…
