Pixel 6 and 6 Pro size comparison: how do they stack up against competitors and older Pixels
The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are barely a mystery by now, and that is especially true about their hardware design. Google itself practically revealed it a month back by showcasing the back of both phones in glass enclosures at the NYC Google Store. Later on, we also got to see the front of the new pixels in billboard ads and finally in Google’s own website.

This year, Google has decided that it’s high time smartphones try to step out from their cocoon and finally evolve into a new hardware design. The new look that the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro bring to the table is refreshing, different, and stylish.

As an integral part of that hardware, though, size is also crucial when making a purchase decision, which is why we are here to help you out with that. In this article, we will put into perspective how the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro compare size-wise to competitors and older Pixel models.

As you can see, the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro are not that much different in sizes. Both of Google's new phones can be considered big and are mostly similar, with the Pro version being noticeably taller. Living up to its name, the Pixel 6 Pro also has a higher screen to body ratio, making use of that extra size. It seems the choice between the two, however, will boil down more to features rather than size.

Google has really doubled down on the big phone energy with the Pixel 6. Since both the regular and the pro version are somewhat similar in size, it is natural that previous generations of base Pixel phones get dwarfed by the Pixel 6. Also, be prepared to rock a heavier Pixel if you plan on upgrading from a previous one.

Here we see some significant differences. Just like with the Pixel 6, the Pixel 6 Pro is quite a bit heavier compared to the Pixel 4 XL and Pixel 3 XL. This probably accounts for the hefty camera bar—as Google calls it—on the back of the device. The Pixel 6 Pro also beats its predecessors when it comes to height, while the width remains mostly the same.

Here's where things get a little more interesting. The Pixel 6 beats all three of its main competitors in terms of chunkiness, except when it comes to the OnePlus 9, which is a bit taller and wider in comparison. Hopefully Google releases a smaller pixel sometime in the future for those who prefer more compact form factors. Otherwise, there are always the pixel 5 and 5a for instance. All pixels from Pixel 3 onwards will get Android 12, so you have options to choose from.

Now we finally reach the heavy weight category, where the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro mainly belong. Here, we finally meet some worthy contenders to the new Pixels when it comes to weight in size. Both the Galaxy S21 Ultra and the iPhone 13 Pro are quite heavier than the Pixels. Overall, though, the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro start to look more normal in this category, with its height and width mostly staying within the norm when it comes to big phones. In other words, you won't find it drastically different.

So the takeaway here is that the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are big phones, but when compared to a similar form factor they actually prove lighter and even less wide. It remains to be seen how comfortable they will feel in real life. One key factor to pay attention to is the camera bar situated at the top of the device, which could create some uneven weight distribution. Nevertheless, lets wait and see how it feels in the hand and make our judgement then.
