    I have decided on the new pixel need some feedback on which one to buy. The 7 with 2 year perfered care and a 30 watt charger I make 15 dollars. The 7 pro with no perfered care or charger will cost me 105 with my trade in.
    Any suggestions would be helpful.

    If you are fine with handling bigger screen, I suggest 7pro.

    Is there that much of a difference between the two?

    I believe you'll get slightly better camera specs, a larger screen -- and isn't the refresh rate higher? GSM Arena is a great resource -- check out this link!

    Last year I went with the a pixel 6 instead of the pro. This year I picked up the 7 Pro. For the $105 I would get the better phone. Plus if you look to sell the pro in the future you'll get more money from the 7 pro.

    Pros of the Pro model:
    Macro mode on camera, dedicated (and amazing) telephoto lens, wider wide angle lens...
    mmWave included (not on 7 unless you pay extra for the VZ/AT&T model)
    Larger, slightly brighter display at Quad HD+ vs FHD and 120hz vs 90hz (not a huge difference, but nice)
    12GB RAM (vs 8GB)

    Curved edge can be a pro or con, depending on perspective. I like the look with the curve, now that it's not as much as the P6 Pro, but screen protectors can be annoying.

    Personally I'd rather have had the "smaller" model if it didn't forego the camera differences - the Pro is definitely a beast to wield - but those differences really make for a much more versatile camera system.

    If photography is important to you, then go for the Pro, which has the excellent telephoto as well as Macro Mode. See another comparison article here as well: https://www.pocket-lint.com/phones/b...ences-compared

    I have kids and tele photo camera is important to me to capture them while playing. Also since both the phones have similar weight, it doesn't benefit much and I am losing screen real estate.

    That's a very good strategy.

    For me, the pro is too big. I really wish they'd put the zoom lens in regular 7. Macro would be nice too. It would be nice to be able to get those features without having to buy the bigger phone (even if I had to pay a bit more).

    I feel the same but everyone is pointing me to the pro so far.

    I'd probably be more tempted to put up with the size if the digital zoom on the smaller version wasn't so good (even if not at all comparable to the Pro)

    Switched from P4XL to P7P. I thought P7P would be a good in hand feel since the dimension of the phone is only slightly bigger (0.1 inch taller and .05 inch wider compared to 4XL). But honestly I think the screen might be too big for my hand - I feel like I'm constantly reaching on this phone with one hand, and never felt that on the 4XL - could still just be the adjustment of getting used to it, but I saw a regular 7 in store over the weekend and the size is really nice and manageable.
    Separately, the battery life in P7P after 2 weeks is....fine... Definitely better than 4XL, but not SO much better. Seeing pretty consistent reports that regular 7 is getting more battery mileage.

    I just picked up the P7P ... my former phone was the P6. There is VERY little difference in the size or weight. I'm a small female with arthritic hands and am very comfortable with it. I do have a Spigen ring on the back of the case which makes for easier handling of the phone.

    I took my s22 ultra into best buy and side by side the screen on my ultra is so much better than the pixel is. I really wanted the pixel but can't give up screen I have even if Google is giving me 850 for my ultra.

    For me it's more about how it fits in my pocket, and the 6 is already maxing out the comfort level. Plus, as much as I'd like to have them, I'm not sure the zoom and macro is worth the extra $300 for me.

    Gotcha! Today's phones are really hard to fit in pockets ... most of them don't fit in the designated "phone pockets" on pants, OR cargo pockets. I haven't tried out my phone pockets with the 7P7 yet ... the P6 was almost too big on some, and too big already with others. Don't know what I'm gonna do!!

    I opted for the 7 strictly due to size. The 7 is as big as I'm willing to go.
    Although I would love the additional features of the Pro and wouldn't mind paying the premium but size is the priority is for me

    Wonder whether the pixel screen wasn't turned up to full brightness... I feel its one of the best out there now, very natural, not overblown...

    I feel the exact same way. I got to hold phones in the hand yesterday and as much as I want the Pro, I don't know if I'll be able to wield it.

    I have a Pixel 2XL but I think this go around i'm going to get the Standard 7 when it goes on sale around the holidays. Seems to be a better bang for the buck with a borderline mid-range price point, almost half of what you pay for a tricked out (huge memory) Pro model.
