Wow that kind of sucks. Wouldn't have guessed the Pixels lacked something I basically rely on.

I edited my original post before I noticed that you had replied. It appears that the Pixel 2 phones had limited face unlock functionality. It was part of the Smart Lock feature and would only work for four hours after unlocking with a PIN, pattern, password or fingerprint. I am not sure about the original Pixel, the Pixel 3 series, or the Pixel 5.

You have a OnePlus 9 Pro, right? It looks as though the face unlock feature on that phone isn't secure. The man in the YouTube video below was able to unlock his phone with a photograph of himself.

I just tested it myself, doesn't work. Tried with several different pictures, though they were on my screen, not printed out. That video is also from April, I'd imagine they fixed it since.

Yah guy at work has a 4XL and he uses it all the time, really likes it. It works slick no touching or otherwise screwing around with fingerprints on the phone. And it's fast too.

If they are going to stick me with a fingerprint reader and leave that function off the device then I wish it had been kept on the back of the phone and not in-screen. Not sure why people are so in love with that idea. How is it better? If anything with the 6 it is less reliable.

Really the only thing about this device that I find disappointing.

imho, I still think the best place for a finger print reader is centered on the back of the phone. Followed closely by having it built into a side power button. Front sucks and under the screen is the worst possible option. Cool as it might be, it sucks as a location for real world use.

Thought this was pretty cool. A look at the evolution of what is a Google phone.

I far prefer the under screen fingerprint reader, but I've only had it on OnePlus phones and it's definitely gotten better over time. I don't like not being able to unlock my phone when its sitting face up.

I switched from my OnePlus 9 Pro to a Pixel 6 Pro and couldn't be happier. Fingerprint scanner is definitely not as quick but it's not as bad as others make it out to be.

At this point I've been rolling with the device for a while now. Several weeks.

Previous to this I had a Huawei Mate 9 which I liked quite a lot. Then briefly a pixel 4a. Now this one.

I can honestly say I am happy with the purchase now that I've had time to really get used to it. I ended up putting Nova on there to get rid of the stupid google search bar but that is the only real 'mod' I've done to it.

Only complaint is the fingerprint reader isn't impressive (slow, isn't wholly reliable IME) and I'd like the option for face unlock which the 4xl and also my wife's new iphone13 have.

I've had a Pixel 4 since launch. The eye thing was fixed very quickly. I don't recall it being months.



I've also been forced to go to a Pixel 6 because of a drop, and the inadequacy of the Google phone protectors.


It's more than quite a bit backwards in terms of everyday usability. The Project Soli stuff worked so well, and so quickly that going back is just a downgrade.

I'd also like to say, as usual, Pixel phones have the best camera on Android. Miles above my OnePlus 9 Pro if for no other reason than the damn shutter lag that thing had.

Sorta... Sony stumbled on 2 of that phones big features. While it has a 1" 20mp sensor. It can only use 12mp of that sensor because of the physical setup. Meaning it's really not a 1" sensor as it can only ever use 1/1.3" of it. Then it's dual aperture. Which sounds great, except it only opens up to F2 and closes to F4. Which is kinda slow compared to most top tier phones being in the sub F2 ranges and allowing in more light.

Luckily the camera software is absolutely awesome. With stuff other phones can't do and just and awesome setup for shooting.

I'll take the Google experience over slightly better camera capabilities... call screening, auto hold waiting, prompt updates are enough to win me over. Plus I haven't been able to kill the battery in a day yet, my OP9P died every single day if I didn't charge it when I got home. The Pixel 6 Pro is by far my favorite phone since my Note 9.

Sony phones are pretty hard to find in the US, carriers don't want them. I loved every Xperia I ever owned, but they have no traction.

Sony still has, by far, the best cameras and software but oh boy they are way too expensive for most people.

never get a sony phone for the camera, they cost more then their mirrorless apsc that are tons better for photography, I do like my pixel 6 though, but that gaming dashboard is a POS and google needs to let us disable it completely

The sensor in the Sony Xperia Pro-I is the same sensor as the Sony RX100 MkVII. A camera that isn't much cheaper than the phone. I do like Sony doing crazy stuff like this. It has a niche and it's expensive because it's targeting a niche. I can appreciate that.

Yes you get more out of the actual Sony RX100 Mk7, but I can totally see scenarios where the phone makes more sense.

Yeah it's easier to carry but I suppose if you want better photos, getting the mirrorless would be a better choice, hell the Sony Alpha ZV-E10 is pretty cheap for APS-C, you can just grab a small APS-C lens

I don't disagree at all. But if you vloging, or traveling light, the phone is a compact beast as you don't have to carry anything else.

Bumping this thread with a bit of an update.

After getting hit with some big expenses I sold my P6P to recover some money. Sold in less than 12 hours over craigslist for $750. I lost money on the deal over what I paid for it this is true. Let's not go into further detail there please.

Since everyone needs a phone I ended up getting a Pixel 4 XL clearly white off amazon.

Now that I have face unlock and it works surprisingly well I don't really see myself going back to a fingerprint sensor again if I can avoid it. I can even unlock the device with a mask on as long as I just briefly pull it below the level of my nose.

Pixel 4 XL had some issues when it launched from what I've read. At this point though the experience has been positive. Not really missing my 'old' P6P.

The Pixel 4's face unlock stuff was magical. It was done even before you had finished picking up your phone.


Soli is actually amazing.
