    Google pay won't work, cards are added fine, NFC on but always gives me a ! And rejected when trying to pay for something. Is anyone else having this issue?

    And this message appears a few times a day (see image) when I'm not trying to use the camera, just a bug?

    Well, I'm so sorry to hear that you're having this issue. The picture you uploaded isn't loading. Maybe try to hard reset your phone even though it's a brand new phone...

    I would check to see if you denied any of the permissions for Google Pay or Camera.

    The only issue I'm having is the phone seems to take about 5 to 10 seconds to get up to the correct brightness. Never had a pixel before, is this normal?

    Sounds like auto brightness is enabled. I’ve never had good results using that on any phone and just turn it off and manually adjust brightness.

    I've had excellent experience with automatic brightness. I hate having to always readjust the screen brightness depending on the lighting situation.

    I know, haha, most people like it. It’s easily adjusted manually which I prefer usually just leaving it set kind of high.

    I mean I know it's easy to manually adjust the screen brightness, but I personally don't know the correct screen brightness to do for easy viewing. If that makes sense to you! Hahaha I remember Nexus phones never had automatic screen brightness and that's the one thing I hated about them. Pixels for the past few OS versions have had automatic brightness...

    We all see light differently and what they think is good brightness in any given situation I generally prefer it brighter. So just works out best to set it and leave it. I’ve tried the auto setting and it’s always to dim. I’d find myself always tweaking it up and then the phone would tweak it back down. Got tired of that.

    Yeah, I hear you. I mean teach their own. I know people love manually tweaking their screen brightness... Good for you!

    Has GPay ever worked before on another phone for you? On my 3A it can be hit or miss depending on what part of the terminal I put the phone near.

    Thanks, enabled all permissions for both (not that I'd ever denied any of them). I haven't had the Camera issue pop up but no joy with Google Pay, so I've done a factory reset and will go try to buy something at lunch.. if it still doesn't work then over to Google support

    I've never had the best results with it either, but due to laziness and the fact that it does eventually settle on a good brightness for most situations I leave it on

    Factory reset worked, Google Pay all good, crisis averted.

    And I have no issues with the auto brightness, I haven't had to adjust it once yet.

    Read today that some Pixel 5 owners are having an issue with the display coming loose from the frame, possibly ruining the waterproof/dustproof seal. They said it was an issue with previous Pixels as well. Hopefully it's an isolated thing, otherwise I might consider cancelling my pre-order.

    Mine appears to have a small gap all the way round. I never would have noticed it if I hadn't read about it earlier!
