    Post Question Cellular signal drops after December OTA update

    Same for me, with the December update I had zero signal at home. Now with the January update, I have comparable service with my wife who is still on the November release.

    The cell reception problems will be encompassed in this line. Whether we get a full explanation afterwards is a different story.

    Post Question Am I the only one who things the FP recognition has got worse since Dec update?

    No problem in the fingerprint department for me since Dec update. It is almost perfect now. Very rare to get failed reads. If only I had some cell signal though 🤬

    Post Question Pixel 6 50MP camera sensor : Storage requirements

    Same for me, I've moved from a Pixel 5 and at the moment there have been situations where the 5 have out performed the 6. However we must remember that (P5) sensor and lens setup has been fine tuned since Pixel 2. I'm hopeful Google will be able to refine the new sensor and processing to go...

    Post Question Cellular signal drops after December OTA update

    This issue is definately caused by the December update (or a part of it). I received the update and instantly noticed that I no longer had signal while indoors at my home. My wife also had a Pixel 6 (on the same network both using a physical SIM) and has remained on the November build. Her...

    Post Question December update, battery drain.

    Signal in my home has never been great, but now my phone spends the majority of the time with no signal (emergency calls only). This will be hitting the battery hard.

    Post Question Did anyone get the December update yet?

    Just noticed my build number is SQ1D.211205.016.A1 The 9to5google article suggests this is for ROW. I'm UK so looks like I've been pushed the wrong one 😞 Would that cause poor cell reception?

    Post Question December update, battery drain.

    Same here, noticed cell reception poorer than it was, likely the reason for battery drain constantly looking for better reception.

    Post Question How critical is it to just charge to 80%

    I'm showing 106% I always charge to full, using adapting charging over night. Charging slowly and keeping temperature down is more important than keeping it to 80% from my understanding.

    Post Question Actual battery capacity

    My estimate is based on 31 cycles. It becomes more accurate the more cycles you run it through. I think you would need to do at least 10 charges where you add at least 20% to get a decent accuracy.

    Post Question Why did you choose the 6 over the Pro?

    In the UK the price difference is £300, which is over $400. Crazy amount to justify the additional zoom and screen differences. I also prefer the black frame look to the metallic sides of the Pro.

    Post Question Anyone's Pixel 6 Seafoam not look like Seafoam?

    I find it has a slightly different hue in different light. Sometimes the main section on the back looks almost white. Other times it's exactly like the promo material, a soft minty green.

    Post Flickering dot under display in notification area

    Proximity sensor is not used for Flip to Shhh. That is a red herring. Flip to shhh uses the phones gyroscopes to sense the phone being screen down and still. If the proximity sensor is visible then another app is likely triggering it. Likely a bug with that app or its compatibility with this...

    Post Brand New Pixel 5, battery seems awful

    I'm seeing great battery life like many others. I started using AccuBattery Pro. How accurate is the estimated capacity given by the app? Anyone have any experience? For me the app is estimating battery capacity to be 4,490mAh which is obviously way above the advertised capacity.

    Post Pixel 4 vs Pixel 5 light sensor (Adaptive Brightness)

    Mine also does this, although I havn't noticed too much of a change only coming from a Pixel 2XL. Is it a limitation due to where the light sensor is placed?I'm assuming it's under the display (near the proximity sensor).

    Post Flickering dot under display in notification area

    I see no flickering when flip to shhh is enabled. Even when a call comes in, still no flickering visible. I only see the flickering when on a phone call (or WhatsApp call) . Proximity sensor is only required when on a call. Flip to shhh is controlled by phones gyroscopes. You can prove it's...

    It's about time the EU countries got some love from Google. In the past our offers have been poor compared the the US. At launch and any discounts later on. That and the poor currency conversion rate to £ or €

    Post Black circle around front camera problem

    My phone did that when I switched it on for the first time, the edges of the camera cut out and the 4 rounded rounded corners were jagged rather than smooth but after the setup it's been perfect since.

    Post Flickering dot under display in notification area

    I hadn't noticed until I saw this thread. I did wonder where the proximity sensor was. It's only visible when on a phone call for me. Is the light sensor under the screen also? You can usually see that on a lot of devices when you tilt the screen slightly.

    Post Time to take picture (camera launch speed)

    No, the exposure sliders were present 100% out of the box. I specifically checked it immediately after the device was on and had been through initial set up. Unless there was a hidden update pushed during setup. The camera app update added the new features and some ui tweaks.
  41. P

    Post Time to take picture (camera launch speed)

    The exposure controls are there without having to turn them on. The sliders appear when you tap on the screen to set your focus. Not sure if that is different to 4/XL. The camera app update is available as soon as you set up the phone. This made some tweaks to the UI and I think the different...

    Post Questions for those who have received their 5s early

    Just got the phone today. Coming from a Pixel 2XL with front facing speakers my expectations were not great. It doesn't have the bass and clarity of those on the Pixel 2XL but it is perfectly fine.

    Post Time to take picture (camera launch speed)

    Just received the phone - I can confirm exposure control is present out of the box. There is an update to the camera app pending also. Speed of processing is very similar to my Pixel 2 XL.

    You cant judge the camera on the Pixel 5 initial hands on. It is clearly not final software. reviewers have mentioned not all features are present. Hence the embargo from Google. They do not want reviews based on incomplete software.

    Post Why no detailed reviews on the phone or camera?! It was announced a week ago!o

    My understanding is that the software is not complete yet. At least one unboxing/ initial hands on mentioned that the camera app is missing the new features cinematic pan etc. Google don't want people reviewing the camera when it's not the final software.
