    Yep 5th is normal. That's the usual release for most monthly updates.

    I hope face unlock is improved. Mine is a little unreliable.

    I just checked for a system update on my P2XL, and it's downloading and installing now -- 110MB is a sizable update.

    It baffles me to see older Pixels got the update before the newest one, and even Samsung Note 10, 9 and S10 got the update already.

    Nothing new there, can happen once in a while on certain month. The beauty of Pixel is guaranteed monthly security updates and first to get android platform updates. Unlike other phones which may or may not get monthly security updates, depends on country, carrier and million different conditions. And forget about fast platform updates.

    How so?

    These Pixel updates aren’t just Security Patch Level updates, especially in the first few months.

    There are Features and Bug Fixes as well.

    My guess is that whatever else is in the update just needs more time.

    Yeah features and bug fixes Samsung is also ahead. They actually updated FPS security flaw in 24 hours. Google still cant manage to fix face unlock so it stops working with eyes closed.

    agreed. The BT issues are the only thing really bugging me about this phone.

    This patch will have lots of bug fixes for the pixel 4 so they are tweaking those out I'm sure

    I mean it's not like it'll be like this every month. I believe this month they are including some additional fixes. Otherwise it'll be first Monday of every month. You can't say the same about Samsung and that too for Samsung depends on region, carrier and what not.

    People are making a big deal of one month, few particular model/region/version of Samsung phone getting security update faster. I also have the unlocked Note 10 and got the update on December 1st, but I have owned every Samsung phone to know that the general norm is.

    There are only 2 phones that's guaranteed security update every month. Pixel and Essential phone.

    While true, this is two months in a row out of two for delayed security updates. Samsung has been ahead those two months, but history shows how this will likely return to the normal next month or so.

    How many Samsung models received the December update? Heck even all the Note 10 variants have not got the December update. Can't believe people are arguing about Pixel security update frequency with million different phone versions Samsung has out in the world.

    What is happening with the Bluetooth issue? Is it a straight-up delay and you just wait or does it require turning BT on/off?
