Screen Time Matters
Perhaps equally important as battery life, the screen on the Pixel could use a sepcs bump as well. In terms of industry standard, the display on the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro is pretty solid, but there are some glaring issues that need to be addressed in the next Pixel device. For starters, whatever tech Google used for the in-display fingerprint reader needs to be revamped asap. The response time from the fingerprint reader was shoddy at best, and most times led to a god-awful experience trying to do something as simple as unlocking your device. In addition, most Pixel devices never seemed to really figure out how to auto adjust the brightness based on lighting conditions, which would lead to the display being too bright in dark lighting, and not bright enough in direct sunlight.
There’s no telling if this can be attributed to the panel itself or an issue with the adaptive brightness setting, but either way, it needs to be addressed.
The Pixel 6 Pro wasn’t a terrible phone by any stretch, but there were some glaring issues that most certainly need to be addressed. If Google can hone in and vastly improve these three things specifically, they could end up with one of the best phones on the market.
