The Pixel 7 Pro proves that Google has gotten truly serious about its smartphones, though not as serious as I’d like. With a beautifully refined design, this new flagship pulls out all the stops on its quest to be the best Android phone. And believe me when I say it’s darn well close to that title.
This Google Pixel 7 pro is available in Lagos, Nigeria to buy from interested tech lovers. Pixel 7 Pro, the 256GB that we are selling in Lagos for pickup and for other states in Nigeria is available on pay before delivery basis.
Thanks to its excellent cameras, new Tensor G2 chip, brighter display, and excellent value, the Pixel 7 Pro might be my new favourite Android device.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra better look out because the Pixel 7 Pro costs significantly less than Samsung’s top handset. Google’s latest device fixes many of the issues I had last year with the Pixel 6 Pro, including a faster fingerprint sensor and better anecdotal battery life.
Google’s updated Tensor G2 silicon is yet another point in the Pixel 7 Pro’s favor. Not only is the chipset in this year’s phone a lot faster than the first-generation (just shy of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in our testing), but it provides heaps of new AI and machine learning tricks that are unique to the Pixel 7 Pro (and the Pixel 7). Seriously, some of these new capabilities are wild, like Photo Unblur and the faster Night Sight.
The Pixel 7 Pro sports a 6.7-inch OLED display with a QHD+ resolution. I didn’t mind the Pixel 6 Pro’s display, but I found it a bit lacking in brightness for outdoor use. Google appears to have taken that into consideration this year, because the Pixel 7 Pro is significantly and noticeably brighter.
Some users have recently reported scrolling issues on the Pixel 7 Pro. The reports claim that scrolling on the display is inconsistent and is especially noticeable when upgrading from an older Pixel. In part this could be because of the snappy 120Hz refresh rate on the screen. An update seems to have fixed the issue for a few.
Here’s what we measured for the display.
- +Beautiful design
- +Incredible cameras
- +Even more useful software features
- +Excellent value
- -Only three years of platform updates
- -Lackluster colors in telephoto
- -Underwhelming battery life
I think that Google has finally realized its smartphone vision with the Pixel 7 Pro. This device is excellent, from the design to Tensor G2 and the cameras. As far as the latter goes, you will not find a better Android camera phone. Even the iPhone 14 Pro is on watch now.

If anything, I wish the Pixel 7 Pro would receive more than just three years of platform updates. Google owns Tensor, so I had hoped we would see Pixels be the iPhone equivalent in terms of support. Sadly, that dream has yet to come true.
I suggest that you consider the Pixel 7 Pro next time you’re in the market for a smartphone. The jury is still out on battery life and I will update this review when I have more data for you. For now, however, I like this device more than any other Android phone before.
Overall, I feel pretty confident saying that the Pixel 7 Pro is one of, if not the, best Android phones you can buy. The current holder of that title, the Galaxy S22 Ultra, better look out. Google got a lot right this time around, even if the Pixel’s cameras alone are enough to make this handset worth it. I
