Upsides of Google Pixel 6 lineup:

Do you know why people love Pixel phones? Because they are so optimized and come with a clean operating system. But the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro got looks. The design is pretty aggressive with improved camera housing looks and way better than the older ones.

Let me explain a fact. You know Android is a product of Google. When we purchase an Android smartphone from a renowned manufacturer they mainly build the hardware parts.

Take Samsung as an example. As Android is an open-source platform, They get the stock Android from Google and then customize it on their own. That’s what we get as ONE UI. During this whole process, the OS gets heavy which causes various problems like battery draining, unwanted apps appearing, etc.

The same thing happens with all those android smartphones except stock ones. In this case, Pixels are a step ahead. You will never see any unwanted apps, ads, and battery-draining issues in them. Even though it has a primary 50MP camera, the Pixel 6 will capture better quality pictures than other smartphone’s higher resolution cameras.

You will be surprised by seeing the photos it can take in low light. Only by proper hardware and software combination, these phones will take your photography experience to the next level. Believe it or not, the battery backup would be better than you imagine. The reason is the same, optimization.

This time Google used their own chipset instead of Qualcomm Snapdragon. You will clearly see a huge improvement in terms of speed and stability. Undoubtedly these phones are packed with all the bleeding edge technology. The display size and resolution are way better than the previous ones.

However, you can not compare a Google phone with others. The same specs of Pixel can provide you a better experience than any other smartphone.

Downsides of Google Pixel 6 lineup:

As the phones are not released yet, we can not talk much about the downsides without testing. But by studying the Specs, we found some little lackings which possibly can bother you. First of all the chipset is totally new and untested. So the user experience can vary from the rumors.

Seeing the core structure we can say the CPU is slightly less powerful than the latest Snapdragon 888. In our opinion, the Adreno GPU would be more effective than Mali. None of these phones contains a face ID scanner. Although they worked a lot on the camera bump, it will struggle while balancing on a plain surface.

The worst cons of a Pixel phone should be its pricing and servicing. You will not find an authorized service center if your phone gets damaged somehow. Besides that, every time Google launches a smartphone, people tag it as overpriced, and it’s true.

Google should work on the pricing of its products. That is the only way to attract more customers and build a Google environment.

For some people, Google phones are known as overrated. The past few Pixel phone’s offering prices were so high that made a negative impression in our mind. Although the phones were reputed to be premium, their CPU unit was not the best in the class. But this time, everything has changed.

Now Google has combined its best software with top-class hardware. This can be a game-changing step for Google. Who knows it can be the beginning of a Pixel era. The new concept is futuristic and Pixel phones are unique. I can’t wait to grab one and see what these phones really can do.
