    Has anyone heard anything about the next Pixel phone? I mean beyond stuff like "Google has announced their last few phones in October, so they will probably release their next phone in October" (Duh) or providing a list of the prices of the last few phones and extrapolating what the price of the next phone is, from there.

    Interesting video. I wonder if it will have under display camera. But the technology is so bad at the moment I can't see Google risking a drop in quality.

    So Pixel is allegedly going back to flagship specs for its next phone? I'll believe it when I see it.

    All in all, I'm really excited for the Pixel 6. But I'm nervous that I won't be a fan - which is what happened with the Pixel 4. But if I'm really not interested in the 6, I may grab the 5 (or 5a, if they go that route) and see what the 7 has to offer.

    Seriously the 4a 5G is an awesome phone. Doesn't feel cheap to me. I love the weight of it and the battery life is outstanding. The 765g chip is pretty decent. Am not gaming so I get top performance out of it. It is not sluggish at all. And for £399 worth every penny.

    I think the Pixel 4a is an underrated powerhouse! I feel like if I had purchased it, I would have been more than satisfied with it! It definitely seems to be a smooth and snappy phone!

    I too may go to the 5 or 5a if the Pixel 6 is not my preference. Using last year's flagship is perfectly acceptable.

    I must say that I like the direction Google is going with the Pixel 5. We really needed a long lasting battery, but don't need to have the latest overpriced processor nor a super high density display. Most don't notice these as long as the processor keeps up and the display is bright enough and vibrant. So I'm very interested if they'll continue this with the Pixel 6 and keep the price reasonable.

    My main hope is that they don't increase the aspect ratio anymore as 19.5:9 is more than enough for me. Wish it would go down to 18:9, but that's not going to happen.

    I agree with the idea that we don't always need the highest cpu or most ram. It's really sad that the Galaxy devices, on a spec sheet, rival my gaming pc, and it's most likely not even close to running at 75% capacity.

    I'd like to see someone like Gamers' Nexus compile some data on what hardware combo the average user actually uses.

    Me, too! Can't wait for it, to be honest. The S20 FE is really cool too - I wonder if there will be an S21 FE. In any case, I've missed Pixel life and may go back someday!

    I think s21 Fe might be possible, yeah see what happens later on when pixel gets released.

    I had been fully satisfied with my 3 XL other than a dwindling battery, and found no real motivation to move to the 4 XL when it came out. Being on T-Mobile and hence able to more readily take advantage of the (coverage) benefits of its 5G network, I looked at the 5, 4a5G, and S20 FE. With a combination of promotions I ended up being able to trade in my 3 XL for the S20 FE 5G at effectively no cost, so figure I'd give the Samsung a try.

    I know that in virtually every respect the hardware is better. And I recognize it clearly in terms of display (at least compared to my 3 XL) and battery (I'm still getting 8-9h SOT!). But at 6 months, any dispensation I might have given it for needing a learning curve is gone, and I can say that - for me - it simply requires more conscious effort to do nearly anything on the phone; the Pixels are, in a word, effortless, and I sorely miss that.

    Likewise, I just don't get the same never-miss results with the S20 FE that I did with the 3 XL, and while I gather that Pixels haven't improved substantially, I find it difficult to imagine that they have regressed. Yes, the S20 FE has wide angle and telephoto, but the vast majority of pictures I take involve neither, and they are routinely less pleasing than those produced even by my 3 XL.

    In retrospect, I wish I had gone with the 4a 5G (definitely would have a hard time with the smaller phone), as while the battery life might not be as insanely long as the S20 FE, it would still be leaps and bounds better than that of the 3 XL.

    "Grass is always greener on the other side" - I will definitely be returning back to the Pixel line unless there is something compellingly difficult to accept with them.

    My brother-in-law has the FE and loves it and it does look like an awesome, efficient device. However, having an S10, I too agree with you that point-and-shoot shots just aren't as effective with a Samsung camera than a Pixel one. I miss that about my Pixel 2, as much as I love my Samsung phone.

    Was happily still using my 3XL until I tripped and smashed the screen. Went for the 5 and am totally happy with it. For the first time in 10 years or so I think I've moved into a place where I can skip a year and still be content; saving $$ in the process.

    I felt the same with my 3XL when the 4XL came out, and had it not been for the advent of 5G (and it actually being beneficial for me) combined with the pretty substantial loss of battery life on the 3XL, I'd still likely be using it.

    Tripping and smashing it?! Oh, no! How horrible! But I'm so glad you're loving your new Pixel 5! It's such a sick phone.

    The 6 will need to have a triple camera set up, a QHD display, and outstanding battery life, at a minimum, in order to even get me thinking about upgrading from my 4XL (which I still think is a great phone).

    If I had a 4 I would not be thinking of getting a new phone. I'm two versions back, though. So the question becomes what do I do now? Wait and see what happens or get something now?

    The 4 XL is definitely a great phone! I can understand your hesitation about upgrading. I'm quite interested in seeing that the Pixel 6's camera set-up will be.
