Going Pro is a big upgrade
Google has finally fully unveiled the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro. This came months after the company partially revealed the phones, so it's been a long time coming, but we now know all the juicy details.

The question you might be asking yourself right now then is which - if either - to buy, and to help you answer that we've compared the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro in all the areas that matter, so you can see exactly how they compare.

From their designs to their screens, cameras, power, price and more, here's how Google's latest two Pixel handsets stack up.

Design

The Google Pixel 6 and the Google Pixel 6 Pro have very similar designs, and both have that distinctive camera bump you can see in the images above and below, but there are some differences.

For one thing, the colors vary. Both phones come in three shades, but with the Pixel 6 you get the choice of a red and peach combination (called Kinda Coral), a black and grey (called Stormy Black), or a green and yellow (known as Sorta Seafoam).

With the Pixel 6 Pro there's the option of yellow and orange (Sorta Sunny), white and grey (Cloudy White), or black and grey (Stormy Black).

Note that in all cases they also have a black camera bump, and that some colors will only have limited availability. Google claims that Kinda Coral and Sorta Sunny will only be available in limited quantities, and only during the fourth quarter of the year, while if you pick a 256GB Pixel 6 Pro then you'll only be able to get it in Stormy Black.

You'll also notice that the area above the camera block is…
