08 November 2021
Google's enhanced security algorithms are what's causing slowdowns.

This reminds me of "you are holding the phone wrong" lol

    I'm just waiting for Apple Glasses. Phones have plateaud. Smart glasses can help us use our phones far less.

        Ok google 😉
        I really wonder what's the net price of this fiasco?
        100$?

          They blame every thing else,but don't blame they should never have launched this until it was,not perfect but better than this,ppls hard earned money is envolde 😱

            Next will be the camera flash problem! LOL 🤣

              Good joker, now for real, is because of The semiconductor crisis ? You have to use low tech ?

                  This is what you get for putting a crappy optical FPS over a better capacitive (back, side) or ultrasonic (anywhere) one, just because, "the other do so".

                      That's total BS. Google made the worse fingerprint sensor and made the worse excuse for it.

                        LOL....

                        I said before this phone was announced that people could expect many issues.

                          battery not charging at its appropiate speed, random calls, slow fingerprint, screen flicker, what's next: to suddenly catch fire

                            The articles needs to be updated. The fact that fingerprint is serialised to each phone is true, but upon change you recalibrate it with a tool provided by Google themselves, where it has proven to work (atleast as of writing this comment).

                            Check out Hugh Jeffrey's Pixel 6 Teardown to see how it works.

                              This just gets worse... And this is the company (search engine monopoly ?) that is suppose to be developing and moving the Android mobile operating system forward. Doesn't strike much confidence in the wider public, if they can not even bring a simple phone to market without all these endless faux pas and severe lack of quality control. Public beta testers, paying to tests companies products ?, now that is innovation...

                                Yet they have many dumbest software issues which are just embarassing and they always require so long to fix them. And their deisgns are often questionable, yet everyone praises them constantly how they rule software just because they are Google.

                                  ABF Media, 08 Nov 2021Lol are we supposed to believe this?? What else?? Why i... morethats one excuse, the 2nd is, its not meant for games, just social media and taking pictures/videos

They suck at software design and UI implementation. The pixels hardware is not bad on paper, but they have cheaped out since Pixel 5, and that's why a lot of members of Pixel team left. Add to that their QC issues on their flagships, which curiously enough, it doesnt happens to the cheaper pixels lol.

                                      Too bad. My Pixel 3's fingerprint scanner is instant. The first generation Pixel was pretty slow though. I figure Pixel 2, 3, and 5 had the fastest fingerprint scanners

                                        Didn't they also do something similar with the Pixel that had a bad screen and they said it was for 'color accuracy' but the screen was actually just bad. Same thing is happening again.
