The best Android experience

This device has excellent feature set, and the display is as close to perfect as it gets. The camera quality is impeccable, as expected. The battery life is poor in my opinion, especially compared to other flagships, and even more so when considering the size of the battery. Hopefully battery life can be improved with updates. The Android experience on this device is the best you're going to get on any Android device. If you're a light user of your phone and take a lot of photos, this is probably the device for you. If you're looking for something to last you all day with consistent usage, look elsewhere.

Pros

  • Camera quality is impeccable
  • Display is top notch
  • Best Android experience
  • First Android Device to get updates

Cons

  • Poor Battery life
  • Poor resale value
  • Competition has longer Software support

Generally a good phone . Screen is somewhat disappointing as in it could do with being brighter , 500 nits screen brightness is a bit miserly. I experienced screen envy when I took a look at a few other phones after buying the pixel 6 IE iPhone 13 (800 nits) and a Samsung S22( very bright). The whites of the screen also have an off tinge to them . This isn't just my phone a friend has the Pro model and the screen has a similar tinge . Camera is very good , white balance much improved compared to previous pixels, although camera can sometimes under expose a little or overdo the dynamic range somewhat. The phone had its glitches during the initial set up IE it became red hot , camera would freeze but after a week no issues experienced! Aesthetic wise, the pixel 6 is a beautiful phone. I find it too big and awkward to hold and I have pretty big hands . Hopefully the pixel 7 will have at least 800 screen nits as standard manual brightness and the problems with tensor chip will be ironed out plus a smaller form factor !

Pros

  • Good camera
  • Attractive design
  • Battery life is pretty good
  • Pretty decent video

Cons

  • Poor screen brightness
  • At times a bit buggy
  • Bit too big , uncomfortable to hold
  • Odd tinge to screen whites
