Pixel 5 vs Pixel 6 Pro

Swappasaurus says...

Moving from a Pixel 5 to the Pixel 6 Pro is a year-over-year upgrade. Typically, this upgrade path means smaller improvements, but that isn’t the case going from the Pixel 5 to the Pixel 6 Pro. The Pixel 6 Pro features a new exterior design and is powered by Google’s first-ever processor, Google Tensor. The Pixel 6 Pro also has the Titan M2 security coprocessor with a Security core and Fingerprint Unlock. You also get a bump in RAM memory and storage, going from 6GB of RAM to 12GB of RAM, and a max of 128GB of storage to a max of 512GB of storage. Other features of the Pixel 6 Pro include an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance, Android 12, a 5003 mAh battery that can wirelessly charge other devices, and new camera features such as Face Unblur, Real Tone, Magic Eraser, and Cinematic Pan.
