No headphone jack and no SDCard slot, so no go for me. I'm also wary of Google offloading their AI analysis of every detail in my life with the new Tensor chip. They expect me to pay them for hardware to analyze me, for their profit? Anyone else see something wrong here?

Same specs as Samsung Galaxy S10 5G released early 2019. Only differences: screen 120Hz on the Pixel, x4 zoom instead of x2 zoom, a bit less bloat. The Samsung has a 3.5mm camera and 256 GB storage on base model.

S10 5G also costs 450 euro less these days... Really debating if the Pixel 6 Pro is a good investment.

All flagship phones are already overkill with their CPUs and what people do or even capable to do on phones, even couple generation older phones/chips. Phones already reached thermals threshold and not able to cool CPUs anymore or avoid throttling when pushed for even short period of time.

"Why should I not buy a more powerful competitor's phone?" feel free and enjoy your benchmark scores or say that you have the most powerful chip on a phone at that point and time, because that is going to be it what you will be doing with having the most powerful chip for the most part. It is simple and honest truth.

I'm a pixel user, and I'm really not seeing anything earth shattering with the Pixel 6 pro. All I really see is some nice cameras. I'm not a photographer by any means. I just want a powerful phone that isn't loaded with a bunch of BS and doesn't bottleneck when I'm multi-tasking and running android auto at the same time. 5 years of updates doesn't do anything for me either as the updates they'll send in 2 years will probably make the device slow down and become obsolete anyway if I haven't worn it out by then. Why should I not buy a more powerful competitor's phone?

SigmaR, 13 Oct 2021I don't understand the appeal of actual telezoom lense... moreIf you know how to use it and use it for photography instead of peeping on something, it is quite a big deal and can even compete with actual full size cameras, when doing 3X or 5X vs 80mm or 120mm.

I don't understand the appeal of actual telezoom lenses in smartphones. They all look like crap, some more some less. Still crap

Pixel 5 series was just a fail but this is something interesting, A real upgrade!

Exynos version of S21 Ultra have aptX among other codecs. Once again, it has nothing to do with CPU used.

How other products like BT speakers, headphones and other gear have aptx if they don't even have a CPU?

The Pixel 6 Pro is extremely promising. I couldn't be happier that they brought back a telephoto. It would have been better if the vanilla 6 had it as well, but it's a start I guess. Hopefully all future Pixels have a telephoto lens, even base models.

sumdumguy, 12 Oct 2021Hmm... I did not know that. But I would never buy a device ... moreIt is not dependent on the CPU chip, any phone can have aptx with Qualcomm's codec chip.

Same as S21 Ultra supports aptx codec with Exynos CPU.

Yet some brands can dismiss having aptx if they go for superior LDAC, specially when talking about top end phones, because they also want you to buy expensive BT headphones. Still I am not a fan of any BT headphones, convenient when working, working out or need noise cancellation, when least care about audio quality.

I can't believe Google didn't brought back the headphone jack, considering the flak they gave Apple in the commercials. I'll get a Sony Xperia I III next year and that's it :(

Any news at all whether it will support dual sim or even dual nano an e-sim simultaneously or not?

Person who got the phone and is responsible for many Pixel 6 leaks, said it supports aptX HD. Also phones even like OnePlus Nord 2 which rock MediaTek chip, still rocks Qualcomm's aptX HD codec.

Anyway if you are into sound, you should be interested in LDAC only and proper non BT headphones, and powering them via DAC/Amp like Fiio BTR5 and connecting it via BT to a phone.

Well, 11 Oct 2021Pixel 6 Pro going to have LDAC from Sony which is superior,... moreLDAC headphones are scarce. Not to mention, I already own aptX headphones... In any case, aptX is a proprietary technology of Qualcomm. Maybe if Google had their own CPU but the rest (5g/wifi/Bluetooth modem) was from Qualcomm (kinda like apple does it) then maybe. But since we already know Pixels get the whole shebang from Samsung, then there's no chance for aptX support on Pixel 6.

  • Well

sumdumguy, 11 Oct 2021No Qualcomm = no aptX = no deal :(Pixel 6 Pro going to have LDAC from Sony which is superior, also super AMP chip from Cirrus Logic.

Not to mention that in some leaks it was mentioned that it sports Qualcomm's aptX and aptX HD.
