    Post Accessories Whitestone [Dome Glass] Google Pixel 6 Pro Tempered Glass Screen Protector [Liquid Dispersion Tech] With Camera Film Protector

    I received the Whitestone a week or more back and finally got the nerve to try the install. I can't brag about how well it turned out but I'm in no hurry to do a second attempt either. The install failed when I pressed the tray bottom and nothing happened. The install video showed the bottom...

    Post Question Poll: How well does your Pixel 6/6 Pro Fingerprint Scanner work?

    For me, the P6P FPR seems more reliable than the P3XL. Usually it's my fault when the P6P FPR fails as I bounce my finger off the light.

    Post Question anyone have issues with T-mobile data?

    Mine had been working perfect up until today. I was in an unusual area and the browser screen wouldn't load. It just sat there. Apps would run however. I started speedtest.net and it woke up and the phone switched from 5G to LTE.

    No problem here with Magenta Max. I got 470Mbs the other day on 5G UC (ultra capacity). Any chance they are throttling you?

    Post Question Battery life thread

    I used the google map navigation for about 25mins and the phone's backside got hot pretty quick. I'm curious why but maybe the glass back and less heat sinking. I'm not a power user but so far the battery has been sufficient for my needs. 5G is almost ridiculously fast. This morning I got a...

    Post Question Storage Space & Why

    I went with 512 cause it seemed like a relatively good deal and I have no plans to sign up for a never ending monthly cloud subscription where my junk is potentially at risk. The cloud might be similar to a rental storage unit where the more junk you throw in it the more difficult it is to ever...

    Post Accessories Compatible charger

    It's nice the pixel 6 tells you whether your connection is a fast or slow charge. I picked up a $16 PD PPS charger at AMZN and the P6P shows it is fast charging. The AMZN listing showed it as iphone 13 series compatible but no mention of the Pixel 6 line.

    Post General Initial impressions

    My P6P was delivered today. It's been awhile since I had a new phone so setting it up was a bit tedious even with the phone to phone copy. Android 12 UI isn't much different versus 11 but the Settings menu is. At some point Google needs to rethink all these crazy Settings buttons and options...

    Post Question Delivery dates!

    I've never bought a phone warranty but am considering doing the month to month option just for maybe 5 or 6 months. Not sure if it makes sense. I've never destroyed a phone but there's always a chance I guess.

    Post Question What Case Will You Be Getting?

    I received the Pixel Pro 6 Spigen Tough Armor and it's too slippery for my liking. I plan to return it. I also cancelled my Google case as a reviewer reported the phone didn't tightly fit in the case (upon turning phone over, face down, he felt the phone drop slightly inside the case). The...

    Post Question Has anybody been able to preorder?

    Aside from conspiracy theories, actual Pixel or iphone online purchase demand might be 100+ fold lighter than the website loading with tech savvy buyers (gawd forbid wholesalers too) using short cuts to accelerate the buying process, bots, users refreshing page and clicking many times per...

    Post Question Delivery dates!

    For ease of choices, I was temped to order a Fi version and just use it as unlocked but I finally succeeded ordering an unlocked pro. Maybe someone knows why it would be an issue. I've moved a Fi pixel 3 xl to another carrier without issue.

    Post Question Has anybody been able to preorder?

    I went back in and ordered the google case but it won't be delivered until Nov 29-30. I'll probably cancel that as I'm not sure how good the case is and I really want the case for day 1.

    Post Question Pixel 6 pro will wipe out iphone 13 pro

    The trend is your friend unless you've been a Google fan. We shall see soon enough. Of late Google has been more interested in mainstream, low cost, middle of the road phones.

    Post Question So... Who's as excited as I am for this ?

    I'm due for a new phone this year as I'm still rolling a 3 XL and it's long in the tooth. Google has been on a trend of underwhlming with their phone offerings. I doubt the p6 will be enough of an improvement. I've never owned an iphone but am considering it this time.

    Post Pixel 5 - Pros, Cons, what's left in between

    The Samsung S20FE will be competition at the same MSRP, includes Snapdragon 865, 120hz display, 4500mah battery. Appears to be on sale for $599. Of course it isn't a clean google phone.

    Post Who pre-ordered and what device you coming from? P5 anticipation thread!

    A better question - why is it showing "out of stock" and limiting pre-orders? I suspect Google is trying to sprinkle availability evenly to all as they expect to run out of initial stock.

    Post Pixel 5 - Pros, Cons, what's left in between

    Apparently neural core made face unlock work quicker so no loss there. About the only thing I would prefer is higher ppi but I sure don't want to spend $1000 to get it. My next phone will be 5G so pixel 4/xl aren't an option. If it's not enough bang for the buck then just wait for black...

    Post Whitestone Dome for Pixel 3 / Pixel 3 XL releasing soon (Dec 6th)

    I agree regarding the curved glass. It doesn't add any benefit from my perspective. And I find it curious some manufacturers are promising folding screens. No thanks.

    Post Best Screen Protectors

    Some of these screen protector reviews are like listening to a used car salesman pitch. Either no one has purchased/reviewed it or everything's perfect, yada yada until you check the non 5 star reviews. I'm still looking for a capable screen protector and I'm willing to pay a premium price.

    Post Whitestone Dome for Pixel 3 / Pixel 3 XL releasing soon (Dec 6th)

    Mine went back to Amazon after learning about the glue issue. Hoping ****estone pulls their proverbial head out from the backside. Its difficult to believe they took all that extra time and still tried selling this product to their customer base.

    Yes, Project Fi is a mobile virtual network. I've been on it since the beginning invitation period.

    Thread Differences between Project FI and Unlocked

    It's been a while since I purchased an android phone. If I want to continue using Project Fi initially but also be able to switch between carriers later, am I better off purchasing the Unlocked or the Project Fi phone? It's not clear if the project Fi phone is locked to the google network.

    Our household switched from VZ and it was expensive and there were times when we cursed VZ's expensive service for no internet. For Fi, unfortunately Sprint doesn't bring a lot to the table as I'm almost always connected to Tmobile. Sprint is in financial straits and that probably won't change...
