    Pixel 7 / Pixel 7 Pro / Pixel 7a

    Yes, disable security on the phone so that the phone would work… What’s the point of Google upgrading the fps or not if Google can count on their base to keep buying their phones even if it sucks? So many manufacturers make phones that can be secured and quickly unlocked using biometrics, and...

    Pixel 7 / Pixel 7 Pro / Pixel 7a

    I mean, every year Google put a phone out there with some kind of deal breaker or two and yet you continued to support them... Say that Google pixel 7 comes with another flaw that shouldn't have happened based on how other competing products were implemented, when would you stop supporting Google?

    Pixel 7 / Pixel 7 Pro / Pixel 7a

    Everything I read this far is that the Tensor 2 would have similar performance to the midrange performing chip of last year. You would get a more powerful “TPU” that Google’s AI would be more optimized to spy on you though. I just hope that with midrange performance yet again, Google ought not...

    Pixel 7 / Pixel 7 Pro / Pixel 7a

    The question is what kind of deal breaker would this phone have or would Google make a phone finally that doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner issue, does not only great photos but also great videos, and include a flagship chip or at least not charge flagship prices for a chip that’s midrange at best?

    Long time Android user to iPhone.

    Has there been a smartphone camera better than the Nokia Lumia 1020 that came out in 2013? Sure, it's super niche but still something where a 9 years old phone shouldn't win. And I thought camera is one of the high points for Google/LG/Samsung/Apple? Anyways enjoy and I hope you get the sarcasm

    Best long term software support for unlocked cell phones

    An iPhone 11 from 2019 has an SoC (A13) that still outperform the SoC (Snapdragon 8 Gen 1) in the 2022 android Flagship galaxy s22. So you ARE paying for better hardware! It’s like what’s better than having better hardware and longer software support? A slightly more customizable user interface???

    Google's Unbelievable Level of Incompetence in dealing with a Pixel Warranty Issue

    Have you tested T-Mobile recently? T-Mobile is way different from the T-Mobile of yesteryears. 4G wise it’s only behind by 8% in coverage. 5G is way ahead of the other two combined.

    Just out of curiosity, are people still recommending folks to use lotion on your finger if you can't get that POS FP scanner to work? #LotionGate #DryFingerGate

    Android dual sim usage

    If you're in the US, your only Android option is Pixel (and possibly Osom in future). Android manufacturers are basically blocked from offering dual sim (esim) options by the US carriers.

    Will you upgrade to the S22 ultra?

    Is it useful? Maybe. Is it better than simply having a larger, faster, more reliable onboard nvme memory? Of course not! Get over it. It’s also not like it costs all that much going from 128 to 256 As for headphone jack, usb-c can transfer more data faster than analog 3.5mm… and with power...

    Will you upgrade to the S22 ultra?

    Y’all can say no they aren’t all that you want, but SD card read/write data speed is significantly slower and the storage media itself is also less reliable. It’s like you guys are arguing against facts. It is convenient for photo or media storage? Maybe. But you guys are arguing that it’s not...

    Pixel 6 / Pixel 6 Pro / Pixel 6a

    That's actually one of the worst things about iOS. All browsers are basically a skin on safari. So there's no real point to switch to another default browser. Also safari is like the only one that allows certain add-ons. So even feature wise, safari is the best browser to get. I want to true...

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    my order for a current gen video card finally went through! I got a EVGA 3080 12GB Hydro Cooper. This forces me to resurrect my NCase for watercooling. I have two of the “ultra classics,” M1 og kickstarter edition and the M1 v2. When my old swiftech h220 pump/cooler custom loop failed, I thought...

    OSOM OV1 is the new phone from the team behind the Essential Phone

    At the time of release Pixel 6's release, what is the price of the Galaxy S21? The iPhone 13 mini uses a flagship SoC, and what is its price? That's why I cannot recommend the pixel 6 at msrp to anyone. You're not getting the best value for the money. And Galaxy users can always use other...

    OSOM OV1 is the new phone from the team behind the Essential Phone

    With all the Pixel problems with every release, the fact you overlooked them speaks more about your biases. The current latest is no different with the atrociously bad fingerprint scanner and the ridiculously weak mid-range SoC that they insist on selling at flagship prices. Is it too hard for...

    OSOM OV1 is the new phone from the team behind the Essential Phone

    OSOM OV1 is the new phone from the team behind the Essential Phone

    OV1 would probably have a flagship SoC. It’ll probably be at least $699 if not $799 msrp at launch. If the OV1 with flagship parts sells for $699, it would be a steal. Pixel is overpriced for selling a phone with mid-tier SoC at $599. $499 ought to be its msrp.

    Pixel 6 / Pixel 6 Pro / Pixel 6a

    Android would also required a much bigger and weightier battery to match what an iPhone could with a smaller battery until Google stop doing "true multi-tasking." They need to do save app-states and only allow a few media apps (like music) to run in the background like iOS or Windows Phone does...

    Extend range of mailbox sensor? bigger/longer antenna?

    It uses z-wave with a mesh network. You just need some ring lights or whatever "works with ring" z-wave products to hop between the mail sensor and your ring bridge.

    Pixel 6 / Pixel 6 Pro / Pixel 6a

    Best buy has the Black Friday pricing guarantee so I'm pretty sure you can get it adjusted. I'm pretty sure I was a fan of the original pixel and pixel 2 (though not the XL). Pixel 3 was where google lost me with their issues after issues. Since I'm also shitting on apple too, perhaps it's you...

    iPhone 14

    Perhaps the hw is just smaller, it's like either use the smaller hw or pay extra to use the older bigger one? Or it's too give it more room for something else. My iPhone 13 pro is definitely heavier than my iPhone 12 Pro. But it is lighter and not overbearing like the pixel 6 pro, which didn't...

    iPhone 14

    The most important app that we need to be able to change the default is Maps. Changing the browser is BS because every iOS browser is just a skin on safari to begin with. And Apple isn’t losing anything from allowing people to change default mail apps. So the current state of being able to set...

    Pixel 6 / Pixel 6 Pro / Pixel 6a

    Best Buy is currently selling the unlocked Pixel 6 at $499 if you activate now. This is honestly the right price of this phone with shit for hw without any mmWave radios, middling if not poor battery life, and a crap optical under screen fingerprint scanner. But it’s got Google…

    Pixel 6 / Pixel 6 Pro / Pixel 6a

    Hell no. Based on the hardware in the pixel 6 ($599) compared to the hardware in the iPhone 13 ($699), the Pixel 6 should not be any more expensive than $599. Much superior SoC and 5G mmWave radios compared to that underperforming tensor chip with no mmWave (the carrier models with mmWave are...

    Because a couple of hours of inconvenience is worse than than the something you interact with over entire lifetime of the phone. /s I've been called android fanboy and Apple fanboy.

    Pixel 6 / Pixel 6 Pro / Pixel 6a

    Which phone are you coming from? Face unlock on the iPhone works quickly and securely, and most of the time in a single quick step. The pixel unlock is so noticeably slower it made me frustrated every time I use the phone. I think Google solved the "scrolling problem" that Tim Cook was talking...

    Pixel 6 / Pixel 6 Pro / Pixel 6a

    After a few days with the pixel 6 pro (which was intended for my dad), I'm returning it. At $900, this isn't worth it. If the pixel 6 had mmWave radios for T-mobile, it would easily be the phone to get at $600. So if you're on Verizon or AT&T, get the carrier versions that may be $700. If you're...

    Pixel 6 / Pixel 6 Pro / Pixel 6a

    I'm on T-Mo. In areas that I get 5G UC, my iPhone gets 600 Mbps down and 60 up. This is pretty darn amazing. I don't think I could get a new phone without mmWave modem. Pixel 6 does not have it unless you get the special Verizon version provided that you're on Verizon. Pixel 6 Pro would be the...

    Diehard Nexus/Pixel user goes 12 Pro Max

    I care about video more so than photos. We live in the era of tiktok, snapchat, and YouTube. Video is where iPhones have traditionally dominated. Maybe pixel 6 will change that. We'll see.

    With the hardware they have on that and then making money off collecting massive amount of data on you to sell to advertisers, you guys must really love to overpay for a "free" operating system. $799 and $999?!? Try $500/800 and maybe I'll consider it. In one month it'll likely have a massive...

    iPhone 13 Pro announcement major disappointment

    This is the biggest reason and feature of an iPhone. You’re able to get $800 for a 3 year old phone that cost $799 brand new in 2018. Like why wouldn’t you upgrade to another iPhone? I like to see any android phone capable of doing this!
