Enabled Active Edge on my 4 XL when I got the phone, a year and a half ago. Tried it and was not impressed - disabled it the same day. Never thought about it until your post. Besides, I am not keen on applying any pressure, no matter what the amount, to bend my frame inward,Anyone a fan of active edge or battery share? I disabled active edge on my Pixel 2 because I'd always squeeze it by mistake while jogging. Never even tried battery share even though it seems like my S20+ has it. Feels VERY situational, but I guess it could help with wireless headphones or maybe on someone's dying phone in an Uber ride.
I'm still going to try the 6 Pro, but in all likelihood will end up with the standard 6.9to5 Google wrote the following today, the last sentence goes along with what I have been reading elsewhere about the curved screen. I was originally hoping that it would be a 2.5D contoured edge, which has no waterfall effect. I will wait out this year, and see if Google releases a flat screen Pixel flagship next year.
"Beyond the finish, we can also get a slight sense of the curved glass on the front of the phone. The dark theme on the setup screen doesn’t offer the best point of reference, but it’s pretty clear that the curve of the glass will be fairly similar to the OnePlus 8/9 Pro and older Samsung products that had the same design feature. Looking at official renders, it sure seems likely that Google’s display will bleed over that edge".
Samsung has great hardware, but their software sux. Once you go pure Android with a Pixel it's awfully hard to go back to any other OS.I currently have s21 ultra. Seeing that samsing is making oneui 4.0 boring AF and gimping it, I may switch to the pixel 6 pro. Would this be a bad idea? Seems it would be a side grade spec wise. My mother in law always takes my phone whenever I get something else lol. Android 12 stock looks way better than what Samsung is doing to it and I usually prefer Samsung's tweaks because they add features that stock android doesn't have. Samsung is ruining it this year.
Curved edge displays blow. I much prefer the FLAT screen like the iPhone 12 / 13 line.
Do me the main thing curved screens are more prone to cracking and are more of a PITA to protect.What can it do that phones 3 years ago couldnt do?
I hate looking at a curved screen outside and sometimes the indoor light hits it just right that it gets in the way. I was hoping the 6 would have been one flat screen one curved but now im really considering to just get the 5A.
That's the first thing I noticed and I like that too. Actually, the specs show that the phones' height, width, and thickness are exactly the same size. Where they differ is in the size of the display, the Pixel 4XL is 6.3 inches, Pixel 6 is 6.4inches. The difference is accounted for by the overall size of the bezels.I like that the size of the Pixel 6 is nearly identical to the 4 XL, which I found the perfect size and shape.
Agreed.And with a 4,600mAh battery and 1080p screen it should hopefully have amazing battery life.
