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.

Im a little less excited since the preliminary testing shows googles chip cant even match the snap 888 and sure wont match the 888 plus. That was with development firmware likely so hopefully this changes considerably.

It should exceed the 888 plus pending how they price the pro.

I think the Google processor is going to be handling operations differently than the snapdragon most of the benchmarks are designed for the Qualcomm chipset and the Tensor processor isn't accurately judged yet.

Yeah Im hoping its something like that
Think of it this way, the human brain can process an incredible amount of information but works at a relatively slow speed compared to computer chips from 30 years ago. The Tensor is structured different with that dual main processor. That doubles the bandwidth of the amount of data that it can process. So a bit slower but double the amount.

Some of the phones’ color names may be labeled as “carbon” and “fog” by Google."

All that money I didn't spend on lockdown gonna blow it on a Pro. Because life is short and I want to have a kick ass phone with a great camera.

Not sure if it's just me, but I want a top of the line Pixel like the 6 Pro. But why do they have to have a curved screen? I like the fact the that 6 will have a flat screen but I want 120 Hz, I want the large screen and the extra camera. Is there something about curved screens I don't know that they are on every flagship aside from Apple phones? My Pixel 4 XL is bad enough that I can't find an edge to edge screen protector cause of the curves at the edge and any screen protector won't cover the whole display and misses a hair causing a rainbow effect. The Pixel 6 Pro is the phone for me outside of the curved display.

It's something I can deal with. I've got a OnePlus 7 Pro that has a curved screen and I got used to it, a heavy duty case helps me. I'm ready to move back to Google. OnePlus isn't going in the direction I'm happy with and the pixel 6 Pro has much more going for it.

I'm still rocking my Pixel 2XL, so I'm definitely ready for a major change. New screen, new deign, camera, OS... I'm very excited.

I'm definitely going to order it on day one since the pandemic has put a heavy strain on manufacturing lately. I don't wanna wait and then be disappointed; I'd rather be disappointed with a phone than not having one lol.

Idk too much about all the processors different manufacturers have used over the years, but I hope Google doesn't let us down with the Pro version and its hefty prce tag.

I hope that it will not have temperature problems like all Snapdragon processors. Then Snapdragon can have how much performance when it always gets warm in everyday use, which is really unpleasant.
Yeah same here. I'd honestly rather have a slightly less powerful processor if heat is going to be an issue. Don't get me wrong if Google has it figured out in regards to cooling I am all for it though. Really unless you do a lot of gaming or video editing on your phone that much power isn't necessary. I currently have the SD865 and it is honestly more than enough for my daily use maybe even a little overkill. I would imagine most people game or edit video on purpose made PCs and anybody trying to do it on a mobile device is a small subset.

    What are the key selling points/excitements? The new chipset? Camera? If the specs I see are correct, it's equal or behind most other current high performance devices even before it's released... And that camera hump...
    The appeal of the Pixel can't be summarized purely by comparing hardware stats, as the whole thing is software and hardware together to amass something larger than the sum of the parts. Even with the same sensor as some older handsets the photos from the Pixel are top of the line despite what the hardware info alone would tell you. I'm excited about the Pixel line finally not having a compromise like the battery, processor, screen size, or old camera sensors. They are finally giving it the hardware it deserves and that should make for a top notch device.

    A week seems like eternity 🤣

    I wonder if Google will take OnePlus device trade-in's?

    I am definitely buying it if its reviews are solid. I am waiting for its reviews and will decide afterwards. But i am surely excited for it. I am using Pixel 3 nowadays, its still ridiculously good in 2021 but its battery life ain't good as I get 3 hours SoT. I am a basic user, don't play games at all, but I do care about android updates, battery and camera. If the camera score is 130 or above on dxomark and battery endurance above 100 on GSMArena then I will buy it instantly.
    That's the mistake I always make...waiting. I'm ordering as soon as pre-orders go live. I can always cancel or return if I'm unhappy with it vs ending up waiting extra weeks by delaying ordering 😎

    Hi all,

    Can someone who has a recent Pixel (4 or 5) that is NOT rooted who's also going to be getting the 6 help me out?

    How does phone backup work (meaning lets say you have to factory reset for some reason)...is it pretty painless to get all of your apps and settings, etc. back? I've been rooting since day 1 and I'm honestly getting tired of it and don't have as much of a need for it anymore. I'm trying to decide if I should plan on this for the P6 or just go stock. My main use is to backup all apps on my phone + data every few days in the event of a major problem.

    I know you can restore the apps from the play store by looking in your library, but how about settings?
    I have the Pixel 4 XL and I'm not rooted. I use Google One as my backup and when I did a factory reset (did it going from Android 12 beta 2 to 3 I think?) and I had no issues with all my data being restored.

    This phone is a massive 90° turn for google as much on the software side than the hardware.
    SO let me know:
    1- Are you excited for the GP6 Pro?
    2- Do you plan on buying it?
    3- What the feature, following the leaks and the I/O that you anticipate the most?

    For me :
    1- YESSSSSS!!!!!!! (see the title)
    2- I'd love to, I'll wait though. I want to see the firsts feedbacks before buying one.
    3- To me, the whitechapel SoC really picked my interest a lot. It will either be a deception or a big nice surprise, don't disappoint me Google!

    Yep...I am. I hope the Pro version has a flat screen instead of a curved screen though.

    1- I really am. I'd never been too excited for a Pixel before, Google never really seemed to be too deeply invested in the devices, not near as much as they are with the 6/6 Pro
    2- Yes!
    3- I love the new design, and to a need to fulfil my flashing addiction, I can be on the early end of releases :D
