Sometimes my screen freezes for a second or two, which in general sucks but not a big deal, the problem is bigger with games though. With most of them it freeze for a little bit and some of them quite often. In this video (
), maybe you can see it in minutes 00:20 and 4:27. The question is, does this happens to you too? Or is my Device faulty?

If it only happens while playing games that load ads in the background, I suspect network bottleneck freezing the foreground game. Try playing offline or setting system DNS to Adguard DNS

Thanks. I'll give it a shot, but it also happens on other games while no visible ads are on screen.
I can confirm this happens to me too. It's very random and rare. But it happens. It's not just games, I'll be scrolling left and right in my launcher and it'll do it on rare occasions. I don't think it's a faulty unit. I think everyone's six Pro does this. I'm pretty darn sure because I have a second Pixel 6 Pro that does the same thing.
