    What do you guys prefer? The automatic setting seems to be bottlenecking my Google Searches...

    Thanks!

    Your Google searches in - the Assistant? A browser (which browser)? Can you give an example of a search that is bottlenecked?
    Is this happening on both cellular and Wi-Fi?

    Sort for the lack of details...


    Cellular or wifi.
    Chrome browser
    Any searches involving Google - then clicking on the images tab take forever. The results slowly populate and then freeze for 10 seconds before I'm able to scroll...

    If you disable DNS, you'll really see slow - like no connection at all.

    Either use the one your WiFi gives you, use the router address itself (the Gateway address) or use Cloudflare (1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1). (Cloudflare is faster than even Google.) For mobile data, either the one your carrier gives you or Cloudflare (if you can change the DNS setting).

    But understand - DNS just gives your device the numerical address for the canaonical address (in other words, you put in "aol.com" and it gives you 124.108.115.87. That's all DNS does. Changing the DNS server you're using doesn't change the speed of your connection.)

    Slow image load is either a bad encryption in WiFi (don't use TKIP or TKIP+AES, use AES - it's not only faster, it's more secure), but that doesn't apply to mobile data. If you're seeing it on both, it's Chrome nor working right, not enough RAM available or something like that. Once you see the image start loading, you're way past doing a DNS lookup.

    Hmm, not sure what to say. I fired up Chrome, typed 'Google Pixel phone' and hit enter and results came flooding in. Selected the 'Images' tab and scrolled through tons of information. This was all on a Wi-Fi connection.
    I'm using the default connection setup (not Cloud flare).
