    Is Google doing the right thing going with a larger form factor and not providing a smaller option?

    I don't think so... having a smaller form factor, not tiny, but at least One-Handed-Comfortable is something a lot of people appreciate. I have an Xperia 5 II and my wife has a Pixel 4a (soon to be traded for an Xperia 10 III) and the size of these phones are perfect for one-handed use (except reaching the top) and they do not sacrifice anything. Xperia still offers several features that are missing everywhere else.

    Question. Would the exposure sliders be able to tame down the very aggressive HDR processing of the Pixel 6s? I have a 2XL and I don't remember my Pixel going that hard on HDR 😅

    Pixel 6s do it well. Easier to adjust contrast than salvage missing details on shadows.

    The 2XL had pretty aggressive HDR compared to the iPhone 8/X and Samsung S8/Note8 from the same era. We’ve had both those phones for a couple of years in the past and the HDR left a lot to be desired.

    @chris parra I'm not sure why a lot of people and reviewers consider the Pixel 6's camera inconsistencies surprising. It's absolutely a fair complaint, but even Google has said that they've used the same 12MP sensor year after year to be able to optimize their processing algorithms for that specific sensor only. I'm personally not a fan of the overprocessed HDR-heavy look so hopefully with time Google will get the 6's cameras to be more consistent and less aggressive with the HDR

    the exposure slider wouldn't but the black slider would help fix it

  • GalaxyNexus1

    Nothing crazy about different people with different use cases, on different networks, and different settings, having different experiences. Plus, many of those reviewing say things like "I only had 30% battery left at such and such time," which really means nothing because of the way Google optimizes and adapts battery. And who even knows if these people have their battery optimization settings turned on. A better test is to just use our phone day to day, for a week, and don't charge until it dies and see if you get through the day. Yesterday I went from noon until 2am, with pretty heavy usage, which imo is pretty damn good. Today, I started at 100% at 10am and am at 49% at 11:45pm...again, pretty damn good, and more battery than I need, considering I am going to bed in 15 minutes. 🤷‍♂️

    Gotta disagree, the hardware design is top-notch. By far the most solid sub-$600 device you will find. The two tone design is a breath of fresh air, fun and classy. The fingerprint sensor takes half second, so not instant but not bad.

    Got the Pixel 6 yesterday, upgraded from a Pixel 4XL, it's almost exactly the same size, I get just a bit more screen real estate. Great photos, battery seems fine and it immediately went straight into a protective case. I got $190 exchange for my Pixel 4XL so it was a win, win for me!

    @Music Monger I did it for the trade-in I got $195 for my 4xl, so did now before I lost out. Phone feels very much like the 4xl, just a better camera and the battery feels like it's lasting longer, although it's early days yet. If you can afford to do it, I'd recommend.

    @Music Monger I'm still waiting for mine. But you also get the Google earpods for the same price of 599. I'm getting another $100 off for a trade in. So for everything I'm expecting to pay about $500. That's cheeeeeeeep. It's almost as good as a $1,200 iPhone and you don't even get Google's headphones.

    Received my Pixel 6 in Sorta Sea Foam today. Really like the design but if I’m being picky would’ve loved it to be slightly smaller and have the back be matte plus the buttons to be the colour to be the same as one of the two tone colours. Haven’t had much time to use it but excited to do so.

    I had a Google Nexus 6. Great phone and camera and I could still use it today and be happy. This time around I find the pizza colors of the Pixel 6 Pro awful and the curved edges dated. I bought a high end Samsung S21 Ultra this time around for the cameras. Not disappointed although phones are still far behind the FUJI X T3 level. But now there's a new Sony phone with a 1" sensor...that they call a camera with a phone!

    A Pixel 6 with the telephoto would be perfect for my use. Don't care at all about the other Pro features, in fact some of them are negatives. They could dump the wide lens and add the telephoto as far as I'm concerned.

    Have Pixel 6 Pro. Screen is beautiful, wrap around the edges have not been a problem with erroneous touches. Fingerprint reader has worked flawlessly. Cameras at night are better even than my prior Pixel 3 XL , which was a very good camera already. Very responsive and quick-worth the investment.

    Having used one I can say that taking video as well as high brightness on 5G you can see the battery drain. As this is a camera phone mainly, its USP, then MKHD represents the user profile far more than those working in an office on wifi playing YT reviews! The former will get 4hr SoT and the latter will get 7-8Hr. So it is simple, work out how much video/photo work you do outside and whether you are 5G or wifi and you will get a number between the two. Mine is closer to MKHD during the week but at the weekend closer to The Verge!

    I had the Pixel 2 XL and for the most part I did like it a lot. The only downfall was the screen though. I did upgraded to the Pixel 4 XL cause I don't like large notches. I like that phone even more cause of the 90Hz display and Soli which I used everyday. I did wish the would've kept the RFS too as a 2nd means of security. The speakers were nice but FFS like the 2 XL are always better. The battery life was the only downfall though. Once you go high refresh rate you can't go back though.

  • Christopher Rager
    Christopher Rager2 หลายเดือนก่อน

    Honestly I think reviews that show how they dropped/broke the phones are sus. It creates this shifty open-ended narrative. Porcupines aren't slippery and you can still drop them. Also, the video on these phones looks way better than most of the reviewers are giving it credit for. The default pov is that iPhone video is better, but at this point it just feels like an easy bullet point to hit to attempt to draw contrast between devices rather than something that anyone will actually be affected by or even care about.

  • eschelar


    2 หลายเดือนก่อน

    Phones fall down for a lot of different reasons. Nut just because you dropped them. I've had mine fall off a table because the charging cable was snagged. I've had screen protectors break because a dog jumped on me and pushed one of my keys (hanging from my belt, not in the pocket) against the phone in my pocket. I've had people try to grab the phone out of my hand to steal it. I've had my phone on a table and someone dropped something onto it and also bumped into the table, spilling drinks and knocking the phone to the ground. The idea that a phone wouldn't ever fall to the ground is one of the stupidest, most completely ignorant things I've ever heard anyone involved with phones say. Since these stupid tempered glass screen protectors became popular, I'd say that probably a good quarter of the phones I see in daily life have some kind of nick or crack on their screen protector. Changing your screen protector is something some people do every few weeks and has become something of a major revenue source for phone shops. The idea that those people don't realize that phones often take abuse that can crack tempered glass quite easily is just totally ignorant. I used to use clear plastic screen protectors and I would replace them about once per year when they got a bit scratched. Now with curved glass, you can't even get a proper case for it. Too much stupid for me. I just bought a pack of screenshieldz PET screen protectors for my Pixel 3a XL and my Pixel 4a 5G.

    Everyone is saying it's at least average or better than average. When Marquis said he only got a few hours he is talking about extreme heavy usage and said it was average but everybody just focused on the number he needs to really flush out what he means when he says that because it's confusing everybody but the general consensus is that the battery is good and lasts all day. Also I think MKBHD probably has 5G going constantly.

    Watching this video on my pixel 6 pro just to learn a bit more about the thing.. I love so much about this phone , EXCEPT the finger print reader.. I like the idea and I like it being where it is but it just does not work well. Super slow, super glitchy.. it's terrible. My pixel 5 finger print scanner on the back was soooooo much faster.

I realize no phone exists in a vacuum, and comparisons are how you understand the value proposition. I just want to hear the perspective of: if you enjoy or like or love the Pixel experience, this is how much MORE you'll love it (or not).

    It must be impossible for The Verge review something and not show at least one or two Apple products in the review. I totally get when you're comparing a phone to another competitor's phone but when you talk about reverse wireless charging you use airpods, when talking about the screen you show a review of airpods or the iPhone.

    The S21 fingerprint scanner usually doesn't even work according to the rep at the Verizon store we went to. She had the phone, and had switched from an S9 plus which is what me and the wife have. We had thought, oh definitely lets switch to Apple with the 13 but after comparing the phones, it was actually a downgrade in many ways from S9 plus. Apple fanboys really need to wake up. This phone is intriguing, the "regular" 6 only .2 inch larger screen than S9 plus. Battery life big upgrade, plus five years of Android support.

    What's the meaning of beautiful phone designs when they make them so slippery and fragile that you really need a case anyway? Plastic backs can still feel premium done the right way, but it's seems like every reviewer complains that it feels cheap if it's plastic (and then slaps a plastic case on their phone 😂)

    I think that the only bad thing about Pixel 6 design is all this glass everywhere. Yes, looks really gorgeous even from a review. But Android users among all others love design a little less than practicality and features. Most of users wil cover at least the back with something more shattering resistant, so why use this material at first place?

    I don't see the utility of mmWave bands for a cell phone. Short of tethering, what could use the bandwidth provided? This, of course, is before we get to the range limitations, which would require a lot more sites for coverage. On the other hand, I could see it being used for the "last mile" to fixed location users.

    The fingerprint sensor deserves more hate. It basically doesn't work at all with a screen protector. This shouldn't be happening with an optical sensor. Despite disliking the S20 FE during the month that I had it, its optical sensor worked completely fine with a screen protector. If Google couldn't nail the under-screen fingerprint sensor, then they should have kept the sensor on the back or brought back Soli face unlock.

    He tapped that fingerprint sensor like it's a hot cole. Is it the expectation these days it should work that fast? When I used the fingerprint sensor last, it was on the back of a Pixel 3a. And I never tapped it like that, but more like rested my finger on it until the screen unlocked. Maybe I'm just out of date with fingerprint sensors (I'm switching to the Pixel 6 Pro from an iPhone) 😄

    Three things the reviewer may not have known and confirmed by a few other reviewers: 1. The under-screen fingerprint scanner works as it should if you rest your finger at least 2 seconds on the scanner. He was just tapping it. 2. For macro (close-up) photos: Use 4x zoom for macro mode. This allows for a macro shot without having to get up too close to the subject, which would otherwise increase the chances of shadows over your subject. 3. Magic eraser: You don't need to scrub over the object you want to erase. Simply draw a circle around the object and the software will know to erase inside that circle as opposed to scrubbing and missing spots inside the area you're scrubbing in.

    @Sunshine Vocals Yes, that is owned by Qualcomm and I think Samsung pays a big license fee per phone to secure the rights, one reason why Samsung prices have been on the rise. I have no issues with my Pixel 6 fingerprint sensor, just remember to press and hold until it unlocks. It is not as quick as the S21U but seems to work 95% of the time (so far). I am using the phone with the latest update (today) so they may have tweaked it.
