    I am not sure what you are seeing? The N6 is wider, but look at the height difference. By volume the pro is larger. I can turn on the screen of the N6 if you do not believe that is an N6 in my pic...In fact all my phones are fully charged and working.

    Tho I don't think either one of us cares enough to argue the point. I know I don't. I plan on giving my old phones away in my other forums as soon as I can just to get rid of them.

    Having a thinner phone is easier to handle and the P2 XL always felt smaller and more comfortable. The N6 had a lot of unusable bezel compared to the newer phones.
    I'm not arguing with you. The width on the n6 made it feel larger than any other phone. It didn't fit in pockets, it was awkward one handed, and it never fit car phone holders.

    I stopped by Best Buy today to play with it. It's roughly the same size as my S21+ so I'll be fine. I feel like you never can get a good sense for actually using the phone at all standing there playing with it in the store. And, it was on a remarkably out of the way location. I walked around the phones and then finally had to ask where it was

    I held one at best buy today, the pro is definitely a big phone! It will take some getting used to since I pre-order it already

    So I got my 6 pro this morning, coming from a s21 plus and the size difference is negligible. Even if you do find it large you will get used to it very quick.

    I've disliked the trend of thinner and taller. My favorite was my Nexus 6.

    Since the Pixel 6 Pro has almost no bezel, the actual screen is almost as wide as my old Nexus 6.

    My most used app is my Interactive Brokers trading app where I look at a lot of stock charts and screen width is very important for me.

    I preordered a Pixel 6 Pro 128.

    Since I upload my images to OneDrive in close to real-time, 128GB is all I need for my photography.

    Saw the Pro at Best Buy. Yeah, it's a large phone, but nothing we haven't seen already. It's identical in size to my OnePlus Nord N10 5g.

    I doubt we'll ever get the width of the Nexus 6 again. A slimmer phone fits pockets better and are easier for finger reach on the screen.

    You're right about never really being able to get a good feel of the display model while in-store - especially when it's strapped into the counter. And there's the "idling" pressure... Just not a good way to test out the phone.

    Unfortunately there seems to be constant phone size creep. Every phone I get is just a few mm larger than the last. The 6 Pro is a few mm taller than my S21 Plus. There is definitely a point of diminishing returns on phone size with what you can actually fit in your pocket.
    I miss the days when phones were about the size of the 2013 Moto X.

    Yes, that big wire sticking out of the back holding it to the display doesn't help matters. Thankfully the general public seems to have no clue about Pixel's so there wasn't exactly a line of people to see it like with new Samsung releases.

    I agree. The width seems to be staying fairly stable, but I don't know how much taller these phones can get. I'm generally looking at stuff in the middle of the screen anyway and if I'm taking pics at most I'd do a 16:9. I don't need a 24:9 screen

    I went to Curry's today to look at a 6 Pro in person. It was so beautiful. The screen was lovely and the size is comparable to my iPhone 8 Plus. So I know I can manage it ok. Can't wait till Thursday when mine should arrive.

    I know. Can't pick it up or hold it but I could play with it. Camera has a new option called motion that allows 2 types of motion picture. One where it blurs the object in motion and one where it follows the object and blurs the background around it.

    I ordered my case from Google. Should arrive same day as my phone.

    I worry about the size but I will use a popsocket and that will help me to handle it. I use one with my 4a 5G and it is invaluable
    I have the Spigen Ring on my Pixel 2 and absolutely love it! The Pop Socket made my arthritic fingers hurt. I definitely plan on using the Spigen Ring on my Pixel 6 Pro when I receive it, along with the Speck clear case and Zagg Screensaver.
