Verizon offered me $800 for my 6 Pro so I switched to the 14 Pro Max. The Pixel Watch using a 4 year old SOC and the Pixel 7 using the same (garbage) modem means I'll be using the iPhone for at least a year.
Please check your facts, not the same modem... It is a brand new modem. And we must all test and verify because that is our nature and the reason we join XDA. Hurrah for XDA !
Exactly. Most camera comparisons on youtube have very similar results. I also thought the whole visor change would help with sun glare but apparently its still there. This year they had youtubers hype up the phone big time. Im waiting for the 8 Pro with hopefully a flat screen and frosted backAs mentioned before I don't see the reason for upgrade from 6Pro to 7Pro. The camera seems to be better but on most cases, except super zoom or for the macro function, the picture quality is similar to the predecessor.
Especially having spent the money for the 6 Pro just in May, on a phone that is generally ok, but I should complain that a basic function as the face unlock wasn't yet release, and might be used as incentive to change. Perhaps I will consider for the 8 Pro.
I was just coming to post that I had read the modem/connection problems are solved with the P7Just an update: I'm very glad I upgraded to the 7 pro, modem wise. I didn't lose signal once all day at work yesterday on the 7, where I used to have to reset my connection at least once every couple hours on my 6 pro. I just drove to a particularly bad spot that usually gives me borderline unusable signal on the 6 pro and did a side-by-side. Surprisingly I actually got some usable signal on the 6 pro (must be because I was there earlier than usual with less mobile congestion), but still my 7 pro signal was noticeably more stable/faster. Obviously not everyone will have the same experience as I do, but safe to say I'm pleased
THe first reports are the screen is much less curvedExactly. Most camera comparisons on youtube have very similar results.

Think I'll wait for the 8. The 7 sounds like a minor update so far, hardware wise. Some have speculated that the 8 may be produced on Samsung's 3nm Process, although others have said that it may not because it will be too expensive. I've got the 2XL, 4XL and 6 Pro, so just may stick with the 2 yr updates.I was just interested to see who here plans on upgrading to the Pixel 7 / Pro come October? I'm on the fence but leaning towards sticking with my 6 Pro for another year. From what I've seen, spec-wise, I do not see it as a significant upgrade. And Android 13 is Android 13 on either phone. I tend to upgrade most years and am typically disappointed with the result (since my Pixel 4 XL, which I really did like). I mean, it's exciting to get a new phone but certainly not necessary unless you have a good reason (damage or whatever).
What say you all?
Same here, I only got the even numbers Pixels.
