    Well unfortunately it's on its way back to Amazon UK

    Constant wifi & 5G connectivity issues; reset a number of times, still the same issues & only restarting the phone would rectify it, for a short period and then it'd start again

    I've got my Samsung A53 5G to see me through and my Pixel 4XL; so will have a think about what to do and if I want to replace the Pixel 6 Pro...

    Such a shame as I have been really impressed with the phone

    Sorry to hear about that.

    ASUS Zenfone 9 has been sounding pretty impressive, maybe give that a look.

    I'm the 13 beta and it has improved the fingerprint reader (i give it a B now). It has not fixed the modem for me though. Still get much less signal than my work iPhone sitting right next to my P6.

    It may be worth enrolling in the 13 beta while you're still in the return period and see if things are better for you.

    I think that is part of the problem. They moved on too quickly to the 7 instead of working out all the bugs. Lots of software issues.

    Yeah; will look into that when it comes out... For now the Pixel 6 Pro is on its way back to Amazon UK for an £800 refund! Not keeping hold of a phone that isn't working correctly and then stuck because I can't return it

    Will sit on a news phone until the new ones announced and then make a decision...

    Wish I'd never sold my Samsung Note 20 Ultra TBH haha

    That is a concern...

    This is why I'm looking at Note 20 Ultra's on eBay again haha

    Although now I've been using my Samsung A53 5G for a few days; it's a very capable phone!

    It does make you wonder... between Google pumping out a new pixel AND a new version of Android every year, do they really have time to get everything right?

    It might seem that way but looking at the plethora of issue thread topics of other brands of phones I don't think Pixels are unique in this. It might seem that way only because the Pixels are the center of our interest and have (unwittingly perhaps) a case of confirmation bias.

    I totally agree with this. There's also a bit of special glee in the press when it comes to critiques about Pixel phones.
