    I am having second thoughts about ordering the Pro...Couldn't compare it to my P 5 as I needed it to take the pic.

    Here is the case for the Pro with a Nexus 6 on the left and an Iphone 6 on the right...Not looking forward to having this thing in my pocket compared to the 5. My 5 is between the Nexus and Iphone in size and fits easily in this case with its case on it.

    The Pro is a Honking big phone-pxl_20211021_202537764.jpg

    I'm not going to lie I love the 5's form factor but i think for Google to have this form factor they would of had to cut a lot of corners to fit all the hardware.

    It's big yes. I remember when people addressed the issue about the One Plus 7 Pro being massive and heavy. Size wise, the OP 7 Pro and Pixel 6 Pro are pretty much the same. You kind of get used to big phones after a while. The only thing that doesn't get used to it is your jeans! Not pocket friendly at all.

    Nothing was as massive as the Nexus 6. The P6 pro should be around the same size as the 3XL. Not a big deal.

    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 use the 4XL. I just got a cheap 6 Pro Case from Amazon. Assuming that it fits, I don't expect much to change. A little heavier.

    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

    Loved the size of my old Nexus 6. Got the OG Pixel XL, then the Pixel 4XL and still miss the larger screen. Ordered the Pixel 6 Pro and am eager for that honking slab of beauty.

    No way. I've had every Google phone since Nexus one. The nexus 6 was the largest phone I've ever had. I still have it(and all my other Nexus phones). I'll take a picture of it's case next to the pixel 6 pro case later today.

    As Snareman mentioned earlier, that phone creep is just killing me lol. The phones get a little bigger each year and I think, yeah I'll still be able to fit that in my pocket. But unfortunately my pockets aren't getting bigger, they're just getting tighter. It's like slow death by a thousand cuts I suppose I'd better start embracing the idea of a man purse or equipment belt lol.

    Maybe it was the width I remember most. Pretty much all phones are tall these days for the screen ratios.

    Man that Nexus 6 is wide and thick... that would be a chunk to try and stuff in a pocket It makes the 6 Pro look much more pocketable

    Here is another pic of the i6 , N6 , P6 Pro case and the Pixel 2 XL(Left to Right). The N6 is just a few mm wide.

    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 wish I still had my Hitachi G1000 to show you all what a monster smartphone looked like.

    It was a Pocket PC phone. It was about half an inch thick. In its time it felt tall, but was probably no taller than iPhone 6 Plus. I’m sure the dimensions are somewhere on the internet. Oh here’s a review https://www.cnet.com/reviews/hitachi...locked-review/

    At the time, the trend was to go smaller. And I regret I didn’t hang on longer to that phone because it was a pleasure to use. Typing was comfortable. The rotating camera was so clever in its day. I miss that feature and am surprised it disappeared almost immediately to be replaced by front and rear cameras, with front facing cameras being inferior quality for years, if they were included at all.

    But it was big and dragged my shorts down when I’d clip the included carrying pouch to my waistband. I was younger then and more concerned about looking weird with this gigantic phone stuck to me. It took all the available space in my small purses. The protruding antenna got caught on things sometimes. Ah, those were the days!

    When I went down to smaller Treos and then the T Mobile Dash and then the iPhones, I thought I’d said goodbye to pocket busting phones forever.

    A psychic, I am not!
