    The hardware is quite nice. The software is a bit hit and miss.

    Explain what you are meaning hit or miss?

    Nothing super serious... Early quirks I expect, plus usual new version stuff (Nova is unusable).

    Also some personal preference stuff...I hate the new quick settings, material you theming is a bit basic, but very nice!

    Any questions, ask away and I'll do my best.

    Have you been looking at my lock screen?

    I don't have that update, so maybe it'll hammer a few things out.

    Typical Google lol.

    Hopefully they will add some more theming stuff with updates! Congratulations on your new Pixel 6! Are you using the regular 6 or the Pro?

    Less than stellar, and that's indoors.

    To be fair, it's the standard 6 (don't know if brightness is better on the pro) and I'm used to the S21 Ultra.

    That would be nice! I'm not going to complain too much though, as it's a HUGE step in the right direction for theming.

    Got the regular, as I'm keeping my S21 ultra.

    Yep the 6 pro is too expensive to be used as a backup. The P6 on the other hand is a great secondary phone. Especially since it will be updated for years to come.

    Adaptive Brightness has been a little wonky for me all along. First on my Pixel 3a XL and now on my Pixel 5. I just set it manually to 75% and its plenty bright.

    Standard 6 arrived yesterday. Really like the hardware so far, feels a little like the Pixel 4 in the hand which I like, happy about my decision to go standard over pro. Already clear that the camera is excellent too at least for stills. Other than the internet toggle I also really lke the software too.

    The fingerprint sensor is however terrible to the point that I am considering if it is a show stopper for me (especially as there is no face unlock). I have added the same finger 3 times tried turning on the increased screen sensitivity thing and it is just bad, no other way to describe it. I assume it is a hardware issue so not hopeful it will improve with updates but who knows?

    I am on the fence, love the phone but can I live wth that FPS day in day out? I have just got so used to them working all the time.

    The fingerprint sensor in my Galaxy S10+ is hit and miss. I have gotten used to it over the last 2 years so if the Pixel fps is at all better I will be happy. Although I like the capacitive one on my 4a 5G the in screen option is good for when the phone is lying down. Face unlock never really works for me. I hated it so much on the 4xl that I gave the phone to my husband.

    I agree that Face Unlock can be very handy when your phone is lying down on a flat surface. I *loved* that I could pick up my S10 and it just unlocked for me. I do miss the in-display fingerprint scanner sometimes, though!

    Wow that's disappointing. And I've heard the FPS is poor from a couple of YouTubers that I trust as well. I was considering picking up the 6 pro during Black Fri deal time but if this is the case, then I think I'll just stick with my 4xl for another year. I still really like the 4xl and the face unlock is super fast and reliable for me.

    Regarding the FPS...I've found that in-display fps work poorly with clean/dry fingers. It works best if I swipe finger across my oily forehead and then apply to screen. It leaves an awful smudge but it works every time. If your forehead is dry or caked with an overabundance of silly makeup maybe you could ask the stranger next to you if you could borrow his, her, or "it's", oily forehead.

    I'm finding the display /notification bar kind of pointless in a way. As Google still has a bar/black bar across the top in apps.

    Very smooth phone so far. A few things, small customization mostly, I'm not a fan of yet. I'm really missing my Samsung layouts and settings. Not sure if I'll keep this Pixel or send it back and wait for the S22. I've got 2 weeks I suppose!
