Coming from the Pixel 2 to the Pixel 6, I gotta say, I'm quite disappointed. As a runner, I need to easily operate my phone with one hand to check my running app or change music... The fingerprint reader on the front is incredibly inconvenient ( it was on the back on the p2 ), and the reader is so horrendous, that I usually wind up just swiping up to enter my pin code, making the fingerprint reader useless. And that's with multiple scans of multiple fingers!The phone is also too tall, and difficult to operate with 1 hand, which I knew by the specs, but there's not much choice out there.But what's worst is the phone seems to get stuck in ruts. Like trying to find an emoji to text, and then not being able to get back to the keyboard. Or looking at photos, and not being able to back out... Sometimes I have to trick the phone into doing what I want.Overall, I'm disappointed, and regret my purchase. I hate Apple, but if the pixel 7 isn't vastly better, I'll switch. Shame on you, Gogle
I had a pixel 4 and liked it except for the short battery life. I wasn't impressed by the 'hey google" function and often ended up yelling at my phone. This phone (with January updates) does an excellent job with voice recognition. The transcription in the recorder and translation programs works well. This is a good thing; I was working on learning Russian and now I can skip all that nonsense. This phone has all kinds of little gems and shortcuts hidden in there. If you buy one, do your self a favor and watch a 10 minute YouTube video on the subject. I got a sort of seafoam one, because that is what was available. The color has not grown on me. It reminds me of a public pool bathroom that was painted in the 90s. But whatever. And on that note, they are somewhat waterproof. Good news if you like dropping your phone in the toilet.
I like the screen, intuitive typing, hold for me feature, screen record and received call interface.
I’ve been a google phone user for years… since nexus… honestly I feel like this model… specifically the 6 is very big and hard to handle. On top of that, the movement of the fingerprint reader is a total fail. I’ve owned all google pixel series of phones and I purchased the 6 and had it for less than 24 hours. Also the huge boxy lump of a camera is just obnoxious. Hopefully the next version can be scaled down in size, lumps/ humps and have reliable security to unlock the phone.
Been a very good experience. Phone works great, Android 12 is really good and overall very pleased. Had the phone for about a week. Long time android user.
I see so much potential with this phone but I'm just plagued with bugs. Between my phone going to airplane and dnd randomly. With the phone making calls on it's own and the kids finger print scanner being mah at best...why not add face unlock!! You have the camera and the software would it have been that hard to add face unlock?? Anyways, it is a lot to love about this phone but all the quirks but make it feel that this phone was nowhere ready to be out.
Long time Galaxy user switched to pixel.Pros:Latest Android supportCall featuresTranslationVoice to textCons:Photos app is useless without online sync enabledUnable to create local albumsMy files app is the worst. Not showing the correct directory structureNo way to relate categories and folders in my filesUnable to open images in my mobile with photos app in unless the backup sync is enabledNo free cloud storage for photos other than Gmail defaultLot more....
Very pleased with my Pixel 6. Have not had any of the discussed issues. Solid build. Perfect size. Not too big but enough real estate to do things on screen. Responsive. Also very good value for the price.
