Pixel 8 Pro vs. S24 Ultra: What are the main differences?

What are the main differences? Well, first off — the brand name. But seriously, there are a few noticeable differences, as you will see below.

1. Design

While previous Samsung Ultras came with an aluminum body, the S24 Ultra will have a titanium body, similar to the iPhone 15 Pro series. The Google Pixel 8 Pro comes with an aluminum body. The titanium frame gives a more luxurious feel, as iPhone 15 Pro users will have seen. Aside from that, there is also a slight difference in the display. While the Pixel 8 Pro has a 6.7-inch screen, the S24 Ultra will have a 6.8-inch screen with 2,500 nits brightness compared to 2,400 nits of the Pixel 8 Pro.

2. Power

As a heavy user, you must be interested in how fast you can juice your smartphone when it runs down. Both devices deliver on large, powerful batteries, with the Pixel 8 Pro having a slightly bigger one by 50mAh. It also offers 30W fast charging speed, but the S24 Ultra provides up to 45W. Some earlier rumors claimed it had a 65W charging speed, contradicting a reliable report from China's 3C certification website.

3. Camera

The camera is also one of the main noticeable differences between the two devices. The Samsung S24 Ultra trumps the Pixel 8 Pro in this department, considering it has a 200MP primary camera against Pixel's 50MP. It also has a 50MP 5x zoom equipped with a periscope lens.

4. Price

The smartphones have different price points and here is a table below for illustration. The Pixel could be cheaper by around $140, based on available reports on the S24 Ultra price.

Device Price
Pixel 8 Pro (128GB) $999
Pixel 8 Pro (256GB) $1,059
Galaxy S24 Ultra (256GB) $1,199

5. Processor

You might wonder why two top-end Android smartphones have different chipsets. Well, Android smartphones have no obligation to use a specific chipset. The table shows that the Pixel 8 Pro comes with the new Google Tensor G3 SoC. The G3 has a single Cortex-X3, 4 Cortex-A715 cores, and 4 Cortex-A510 cores. It features a next-gen Tensor Processing Unit and a Mali-G715 GPU. The Samsung S24 Ultra comes with Qualcomm’s latest processor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen3. Its predecessor had the Gen2, which is considered powerful.

These are different processors with different build capabilities. While the Google Tensor G3 is mainly built to power machine learning tasks, the Snapdragon 8 Gen3 is constructed to deliver raw power. So, it is no surprise that benchmark tests reveal the same.

Aside from the above listed, there are also other minor differences. For instance, the Pixel 8 Pro comes with Android (14), while the S24 Ultra comes with Android. The S24 Ultra also supports reverse wireless charging, while the Pixel 8 Pro does not. The S24 Ultra also has a stylus, while the Pixel 8 Pro does not.

Considering all these, which should you buy? We look at factors that can help you decide.

Pixel 8 Pro vs S24 Ultra: Which to buy?

If you have lost or damaged your phone and need an immediate replacement, it makes no sense to wait until January. You can get the Pixel 8 Pro now.

Aside from that, if you are a Samsung user with the S22 series and you want to try something new, the Pixel 8 Pro is an excellent option because it has powerful features and even runs on the more recent Android 14 version. Well, there are also other factors to consider if you still can’t decide.

  1. Price and Budget

    From all indications, the S24 Ultra will cost more, by at least $140 or something close to that. So, consider your budget and buy the Pixel 8 Pro if you prefer a cheaper device.

  2. Weight

    While you may consider this minor, it is vital for others. The Pixel 8 Pro is 10 grams lighter. You can opt for it if you prefer a more lightweight smartphone.

  3. Camera

    If you are a photo buff, you need a camera to deliver more power than most on the market, and the Samsung S24 Ultra delivers a better one than the Pixel 8 Pro.

  4. Processor Power

    You may be tempted to go for the Pixel 8 Pro because it has one core more than the S24 Ultra. But also consider that the Snapdragon 8 Gen3 packs more power, as you will find in the below diagram from Android Authority.

  5. Battery Life

    There’s no doubt that the Pixel 8 Pro has a bigger battery, but that is not all that matters. The S24 Ultra will have a stacked battery, delivering high efficiency. Also, consider that the Samsung smartphone will have faster charging at 45W compared to 30W. You can wait for the S24 Ultra if battery life is your priority. To buttress this point, here is a look at the GSMarena battery test result. It shows that even the S23 Ultra outperforms the Pixel despite its bigger battery.

So, while the above factors are essential, patience is also a virtue. You can wait another month to try the Samsung S24 Ultra. If you intend to do that, you may wonder about data transfer. Although there are official ways to do it, you know that those options can be slow and too technical for everyday users.

Luckily, there is a reliable application to handle this issue. The MobileTrans software offers an alternative, secure way to transfer all phone data. It is safe, easy to use, and accessible.

It improves the features of the Pixel 7 series, with pro controls and some AI features. Google also improved its SoC, which addresses thermal issues in previous Pixel smartphones.

Yet, the Galaxy S24 Ultra seems like a different beast. At least, going by rumors, it has ample storage, a more powerful chipset, and a better camera. Samsung also plans to debut its AI features with the phone.

However, all of this is based on reports and only on paper. So, here is some advice. If you need a good smartphone, the Google Pixel 8 Pro is one of the best in the market. Otherwise, you can wait another month to test the Galaxy S24 Ultra before deciding which to settle for.
