    I’m not a fanboy of any phone I think they’re all the same now. But I find it funny how other brands are calling theirs ‘Pro’ simultaneously marketed as an ‘iPhone killer’. If you have to copy, you’re not killing anything. This pixel 6 looks incredible, but iPhone will coast on familiarity and that’s what people want.

    I'm a bit curious about the modded OS scene. If tensor becomes a thing, will that make it difficult for after market OS or easier? And if it does make it difficult will it force other brands to be more lenient with their boot loaders, i.e. if the Pixel does very well. Cause if it does well the A series could maybe benefit from this and steal the show

    I'm still having Pixel XL and only this year it started to be slower than should be. Can't wait for Pixel Pro 6 (Pro)! Purposely was not buying older ones as was not satisfied with the reliability. After pixel 5 was really disappointed as was waiting for a powerful flagman. I hope my waiting worths it!

    I'm curious about that tensor chip. I loved my OnePlus device but it's lacking innovation and price is ugly after Carl pei left. Don't get me wrong my op7 pro is still badass. I haven't ever used a pixel though. Easier on the wallet I would think. The charging speed is king though on my op7 pro

    I have two bricked Nexus 6P devices at home . Both of the phones processor core had some issues and went to Infinite boot loop . That day I decided no more Google phones. Both google and Huawei denied my request to replace even if I am using Google FI, both finished warranty one month before. No more Google device's in my life

    My Pixel 3's battery got hot & the case separated a bit on the button side . . but it mostly still works. I bought an Otter case & was able to force it to close. 3 yrs ago when I bought it Google had an over-the-phone tech help # that I relied on. Since the Covid 19 started - a yr & a half ago - Google turned off this phone # and replaced it with a recording, " Do to the virus & our concern for our employ's health . . . " ect. Do you know if they will have a ' working - human ' help phone # again when the Pixel 6 goes on sale? This is a big deal for me & will factor in as to whether or not I buy a Pixel 6. Thanks, Ray

      @Kian Bailey yeah I think your right , but since Google is making their own chip now and the phone will get years of updates to the OS like iphones is the reason I'll buy it as I keep my phones until they give out , plus I much prefer the stock Android with very little bloat ware.

      @James James 4 is shit as well, sometimes bigger is not better, 5 suppose to have better battery because of snapdragon 765g but battery is still shit. The lack of little features on pixel that make life easy is mind blowing, considering google owns this OS. I guess my love for google clouded my judgement but lesson learnt.

    Doesn't appear to have a fingerprint sensor, which is a shame. It's my preferred way to unlock. Also love the fabric cases, hope those still continue.
