    I miss a lot, if I'm being honest. I use DEX quite a bit, edge panel with preset split screen apps set up, pop-up apps (or whatever it's called where you have a mini floating app), I'm not a huge S Pen user but it's nice to have for those times you need to be precise or sign documents.
    Then there's some of the cool customization Samsung's offer - can tweak AOD, edge lighting notifications, etc. Are these a necessity? Absolutely not, but fun to have and change up every now and then to get a new look/feel.

    BUT ... I love the handy features the Pixel offers. As mentioned, voice to text dictation is insanely accurate and some I use often. Call screening is great, hold for me is awesome, being able to say "answer" when the phone is ringing is great. And the camera is phenomenal with some nice features like long exposure and action pan.

    So, long post even longer ... I need a hybrid Galaxy-Pixel LOL

    Great comparison between the two. I have the S22+ and would love to see someone compare this to the regular Pixel 7 as I'm not a fan of tall and narrow curved edge screens.
    I can help. Keep the S22+ if I'm in your case.

    Pixel 7 has a smaller screen which it's hard to adjust too for me at least . The text is harder to read on default setting. Finger scanner is not worth searching for thin glass protector on benzo store.

    Pixel 7 can goes again Samsung S22.

    If you decide to test Pixel 7 then go Pro.

    I just left best buy and the pro seems like a very nice device the regular 7 is too small for me I may pull the trigger for the pro today before the trade in amount get any smaller.

    I still have both phones. I did not trade-in my S22U, I bought the P7P outright. I generally try to keep two personal phones and after I sold my P6P, I found myself with the S22U only. I like to keep two phones for trade-in for a brands next release. In a nutshell, I kept my S22U for the S23U trade-in. That said, at this point, I could stick with the P7P until the Pixel8 and skip the Samsung. I know this will change when the leaks for S23U begin.

    I have put my sim card in my P7P since release day and haven't looked back. The Google experience is really good this time around, out of the box. The P6P took so many updates to remove annoyances, and for some the modem connectivity was never fixed.

    S22U pluses - S-Pen, customizations, strong connectivity, camera
    P7P pluses - Kind of like iPhone(it just works), point & shoot camera, voice everything, phone & call functions, price

    The P7P has been a great experience, vs. the P6P. I liked the P6P, but didn't love it, thus I sold it.

    I don't want to repeat everything already said in this thread. Both phones have their merits.

    How do you feel the camera is next to the S22 ultra better or worse?

    Better, in most situations. No Pro mode on Pixel if you are someone that uses that. It has never been about hardware with Pixel. Their software processing is great and it works in synergy with the installed hardware, which is why you won't get the exact same results using a G-Cam iteration.

    You're right. Software processing is huge with Pixels.

    Pixel is definitely the way to go on Android. It just feels smoother, smarter and more alive. It's always thinking. Best pictures on a smart phone. Feature drops keep the phone newer for longer. I don't care for one ui. I'd take call screening, hold for me etc over the abundance of useless features from one ui for me.

    I have a Flip, and I can say all the extra customizing I can do is fun, if a little overwhelming lol. I'll be keeping it along with my 6 Pro, but only because it folds... if it was a slab I'd be taking the pixel over it all day, because the pixel has the features I count on and use every day, and the Samsung software lacks those features, but just seems to give me more things to play with.

    In the end I need my phone to be a phone number 1, and the pixel just seems better at that for me.
    This is right on!

    I absolutely love my Fold 4, but if rumors of the Pixel Fold early next year are true, it will have everything I want....A foldable with pixel software, and a PIXEL camera!! Look out!!

    I traded a Pixel 6a, i got for about $270 for a whooping $700 from Verizon. So I got a good deal on the 7Pro. I really like it so far, but still have the Samsung S22U and I still love that phone. I alternate my SIM, after 2 weeks still love both.

    Did you get the $700 trade in if you buy the phone out right?

    I asked VZ customer service that same question, it's in the fine print. The trade-in amount is only as a credit over 36mnths. You won't get the credit on out-right purchase.

    Seems carriers are now stretching those 24 month credits out to 36 months. Works for those who keep their phone that long, but not for me.

    That's how they budget it. If you were to trade in to upgrade or change carriers say a year later, you've lost $466 of that credit.

    Yeah, this is why I am always hesitant to take advantage of those deals. But again, if you are happy with your carrier and you keep your phones for 3+ years, makes sense. For me, those deals are also less attractive because I'm on a ridiculously cheap T-Mobile prepaid plan.

    I'm on the S22+. I financed for 36 from Samsung. I'm going to start paying a little bit extra every month so I can eventually sell it for what is owed on it and then I will probably get the Pixel 7 Pro. I don't know. Maybe in 6 months this phone will improve. Right now Google will give me $620 for this phone and they are selling for $600 on Swappa but I currently owe around $800 on it. That's a big downside to paying 36 months vs 24. The value drops quicker than what is owed on it. I want to at least keep this phone for a full year.

    I just spoke with Samsung and I can't trade in the phone to any place else than Samsung until it's paid off.

    Also they confirmed that if I pay off one of my devices early then it will lower my monthly payment.

    Did they say what would happen if you did trade it in? Would the other company be able to find out someway and deny the trade in?

    I'm leaning towards buying it. I know I can sell both my phone and tablet to pay them off. My main reason is I want the best camera on a phone because my wife and I are celebrating our 20th in the DR in June next year. I may end up keeping my tablet and just paying the extra that I would need to pay off the phone.

    I don't understand that. Samsung doesn't lease out phones. You actually bought it, and Samsung is allowing you to pay it off over time. BUT the phone is yours. Stop paying and Samsung will not demand the return of the phone. Samsung can't stop you from doing whatever you want with the S22+ its now yours to do with as you please. I've sold and traded in phones I bought through samsung financing without any issues.

    That makes sense because when I check the esn on Swappa it is available to sell. Whenever I have tried to sell a phone that I bought through Verizon and I still had payments, Swappa told me it's not eligible to be sold. But with Samsung, it is.

    I don't know why they told you that. Samsung doesn't care what you do with the phone as long as you keep paying on it or you pay it off. I've done it a lot of times.

    This is just another upgrade.
