    Your zip file is 215MB? Mine (OTA for the 6) was almost 2GB.

    Yup... Reddit is on fire about the update
    If you're on the November build, the file is gonna be larger than if on December.

    I think OTA updates are just updated files and sideloading is full OS image. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong...

    215mb for my Pixel 6 Pro and I was on November update. I was thinking the update would be much larger.

    I had sideloaded December. Dunno. The OTA file I got from https://developers.google.com/android/ota#oriole is 1.9GB.

    Nothing seems broken. I'll have to see if things are improved. Fingers crossed. I want to love this phone.

    Sideloading simply means using a PC to load an image. It can be either a full OS image or an OTA file.

    Right but I believe when the phone "updates" it is only grabbing files that were changed between months where downloading the OTA image from google is the full OS image not just changed files.

    Again could be wrong on this but that is my understanding on how it works

    Are folks getting the OTA truly OTA? I did not even check that. I just grabbed it from google and sideloaded.

    Is that the Verizon version? My update size is slightly different 41.21MB.

    I thought Google didn't do regional builds...

    Just occurred to me that the 6 and 6 Pro probably have slightly different software.

    I was on 016, but I have wondered if the signal issues were US only.
