We got some hands-on time with the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Each has Google's new, custom-designed system on a chip, called Tensor. The long and the short of it is simple: Google's actually trying to make a real flagship phone this year. Will it be enough?

What does Google need to do to make the Pixel 6 a success?

Remove that huge chunky bumper car camera section. I held onto my pixel 3 for all this year now I regret I should have bought the pixel 5 before this huge bump was added.

1. Online official stores across multiple countries 2. Not to be 2 years behind with the phone design and features (for example having a notch when everybody switched to the holepunch since a year).

Excited for this phone. . . until I realized that it's probably going to be a 1000 bucks. I think I can really only drop 500-600 comfortably but i'll have to wait for the pricing to drop before I make any final decisions. Always loved Pixel over other smartphones because they were able to offer so much for the money. Glad they're trying new things but may need to wait for this one.

My "mid range" pixel has performed better than any flagship I've ever owned. I'm not okay with this Price increase based on slapping the label "flagship" on this new phone.

i think these phones are a bit stupid. the smallest one is 6.4" and the larger is 6.7? 1.too close in size. 2. That's too damn big. They should have done one normal 6" phone with polycarbonate backs like S21 base model and then made the 6.7 the pro with glass etc. I am not paying $1000+ for a 6.4" that doesn't have all the features of the Pro.

Google doesn't need better hardware. They need to make Android less awful. I've had a Nexus 4, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 XL, and Pixel 4a. Android is getting worse - and Apple has stopped being so aggressive about breaking Google Maps/Calendar/Contacts and Chrome on iOS. Even Android Auto has gotten worse, and that's the #1 thing I actually need my phone for. It used to let you navigate to places on today's calendar events. It used to be a lot better than Apple CarPlay. But now CarPlay is better. CarPlay works fine with Google Maps, and it has a really nice split view with Spotify. The only thing that's better on my Google phone is the swype keyboard, and I can get the Google keyboard on iOS. So I guess an iPhone is the best Google phone. I mean, Face ID is stupid, but I'd rather have a $350 iPhone SE than any Android phone.

Huge mistake not having a reasonably sized pro version. Even the smaller 6.4 inch is way too big for me personally. I was super hyped for the pixel line up this year but having no smaller option killed it for me. Probably gonna trade in my s21 towards an iphone 13 pro now they it has 120 hz. There's a reason apple continues to have a 6.1 inch version of their pro line and has even made the normal version the same size.

I own a pixel 4 LX, I like it a lot, however it overheats when I'm playing online games like Ingress Prime, an augmented reality mobile game. I wish google would be smart enough to instead of using a glass back it would use an aluminum back to act as a heatsink to keep the phone cooler.

You talked about everything accept that which I actually care about. Audio. I'm still on the pixel 2 XL mainly because I love the front facing duel speakers. My p2 still sounds good, but better is always better. I do know that I'll never be able to go back to or switch to a non front facing duel speaker system. So what's the deal???

Hiya. I've stumbled across this video. I will subscribe after commenting.. Man, honest to god I was all set to buy the pixel 5 on its release (I had the pixel 3 before that) but I decided not to in the end. I had a gut feeling that better things by Google were on the way? That 12.2 meg camera, I felt that it was at the end of its days. I'm glad I waited. I'm currently on a Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC phone (I call it my bridging device, but it's actually not that bad a phone) and I'm definitely gonna get that Google pixel 6 pro when it is released 👍🏻

Pixel phone had 3 issues in the past and that kept haunting them time & again, apart from few other minor issues 1. Battery - This has never been Pixel's strength. You can argue Pixel 5 & 5a are good. But they are sub-par in contemporary market 2. BT - Bluetooth connectivity has been the worst. Few get lucky and all is good for them, rest all got pissed and eventually moved out of Pixel market 3. Audio - This has been a weird game and has been on & off Minor issues include - Over-sold AI features, s/w support (compared to Apple), Camera improvements, terrible, terrible Pixel buds and all the trolls Google does on Apple and mimick them there-after Challenge Now, Pixel not only need to fix all of the above, they have a newer problem. They are going with their on SoC. Fingers crossed. "Google promises One day battery life". That's already SCARY enough!! Most of the Android competitors have already stepped into 1.5, 2 days. If Google can''t beat them, Pixel6 will be a repeat of Pixel4. Unless Pixel fixes all of above, it will remain as an interesting player in market. It can certainly be a darling for geeks. Rest all will pass on it and choose Samsung, Motorola, 1+, Xiomi, Vivo,....... Even my hope needs a hope when it comes to pixel. Burnt myself 4 times, so far. I'll not buy Pixel until the holiday season. By then the verdict will be out.

Google always was bad in hardware, they always has worst engineering, and they very often abandoning their projects. Even if they were promising, but they need just a little bit effort. So I would never trust Google. I prefer phones with real great cameras, like Samsung S21 Ultra or Huaway P50.

Every Pixel phone I've had needed to be replaced within 2 years. Always a critical failure with the speakers, battery or cameras, until the last round I just replaced the camera myself. I was also surprised how my Google news feed stories were also magically aligned to real life conversations I was having a few days prior... then the penny dropped. It listens to everything. I tried to love these phones for 6 years, but it's a hard pass from here on in.

Pixel 3's are bricking unexpectedly and all Google has to say as they are aware of it and have nothing else to share? What if all the Pixel 6's brick a year after you buy it when the warranty is over? I guess Google would have nothing else to share.

I've been saying this for years and I'm glad google is finally changing. I've been here since P2 and it's probably their best phone tbh, but I have not been impressed by ANYTHING that's been coming out. I skipped P3 and got the P4 and it's decent but it just didn't compare to the Samsung S21 at the time. I was very close to switching teams but the announcement of P6 got me excited. I'm so ready for it to come out.

ANUBIS PHARAOH 9 dias atrás
If they only have one storage option (128gb), they are doomed to fail. Samsung and Apple at least gives you options. I am waiting to see. With the exception of lesser quality photos, the One Plus has been a better buy then Pixel, however One Plus is now charging premium prices, and with subpar photos compared to Samsung and Apple, is where they loose out. Also, One Plus used to update software extremely fast, now they are starting to update slowly. This is one reason Apple is the most purchased phone. Android phones want to make too much profit off their phones. They have to realize they are not Apple. I phones have great resale value, and Android phones have terrible resale value. If you are charging I phone prices, at least have an equivalent phone. Apple also leads due to service, Apple stores are a great resource. If Google wants to be successful, give equivalent specs as an I phone, but sell for less. Instead of trying to make 800% profit off your phones, try doing 200% profit, and price the competition out of the market. Look at LG, they had some good phones, but they wanted to sell them for the same price as Samsung flagships and iPhones, now they are no more.
ANUBIS PHARAOH 9 dias atrás
What storage options?
ANUBIS PHARAOH 9 dias atrás
More storage options. 128 GB is not enough. They need to have 256GB and 512gb options. Stereo speakers. Bring back expandable storage, only can get it with Sony now. If Sony had a brighter screen I would upgrade to it. Everything else on the Sony phone is nice. Why are all the phone companies forcing us to store our information in the clouds. Give us expandable memory and more storage.

Why do they spend so much time and extra money on things like glass backs and color, All phones I have had in the past and most I see every day in the wiled are placed inside some form of phone case? I have not seen the back or sides of my Pixel 3a xl 5 times in the 2 years I have owned it. I had a nexus 4 (I think it was) with the glass back, and I hated it. Kept falling off my leg wile sitting, so I bought a case for it., the fancy glass back never saw the light of day again until I had to replace it because it broke. Waste of time and money for something I never saw.

So premium color options like polished metal Gold, White/Silver, and gun metal grey are only nice when Apple is offering them. When Google does it they're "boring"? I'll take those colors over the child-like pastels, oranges, and whatever other plasticky thing they used to do any day.

It doesn't matter how good it is.....if they want to challenge the top spot they have to sell globally.....I live on a tiny island and we have 3 i Centres, Samsung have their official Store with all their TV's and phones and other gizmos and what......Google can't stock a few stores here? And it's not as if they roll out a zillion models like Samsung...they only have 2 models to think about.

This will not sell well if they sell it at a premium price. They need to do the Xiaomi low price strategy. They already make billions from ads, just freaking undercut the competition. People are tired of seeing all these $1000+ prices. I, for one, won't ever pay more than $700 for any phone, never have.
