The phone WOULD be great if it worked. In 1 month I've factory reset my Pro6 3 times now.

AI photo edit is great - when it doesn't cause the phone to reboot

The camera app crashes all the time, causes the phone to random reboot when you open it or change modes. Forget 3rd party apps the Google apps do not even work on this phone. This includes Photos, Gmail, Drive,Chrome, Maps - the app flashes open then closed again, eventually the phone will do a random reboot again. Chrome wouldn't work at all even after a reboot, the only thing that fixed it was a factory reset (clear cache etc didn't work).

Google maps locks up sometimes and a reboot is the only way to fix it - which is always fun at 70mph. Bluetooth disconnects from car all the time, in fact once while navigating it decided to forget the cars pairing and I had to stop and re-pair the device to the car.

The phone has taken 3 android updates in the single month I've had it.

I've got 30 years software dev experience and never ever seen anything that bad - how it passed DevTest let alone QA is beyond me.

I've just received my replacement phone today from Google, because costing them money is the only way they are going to fix this.

The Pixel 6 Pro phone is a worthless device - I own TWO. I've got over 30 years of dev experience also and I wouldn't buy this phone for a dead squirrel! The apps work (V12, Android, most recent release as-of 4/17/2022) but the phone, used as a phone, has VERY serious issues. Pictures are great! Text messaging... well you can lose your ENTIRE active text message that you're working on and you MUST restart. Zilch saved as temporary and NO way to recover. It's lost and never to be seen again.
Phone calls.. if you don't catch the inbound call then just hope and pray that the Recent inbound calls are quickly updated (normally true, but don't expect a lot). I had a call in the last several days come in and it's in "the cloud" floating around someplace.
So, great camera, extremely bad phone, bad for active text messages and the locations of various options are "hidden in plain site". Once you find them, fine. Nuances on what happens if you select some "option"... who knows! ;-(
Connectivity to Google contacts? I still can't determine how to do a Group list/search. Some of my Google contacts seem to be lost on the phone but not lost on my Windows-based workstation. I have NO idea why. My previous LG phones (Android, v9 and v10) had NONE of the above issues.
These nuances just 'pop up' so it's challenging to debug but it's frequent enough that it destroys my day and attitudes of that day - unless I just want to carry around a $1000 camera and boat anchor.

Its a crap. Any Chinese phones in this price will do the same or better. It's just commercial. Battery is a crap, remember that. It's the worst. This abnomaly it's very thirsty. With 15 w wireless charging I have noticed the battery is going down watching YouTube with full bright. Plus so called smart it's a retard thing. Taking decisions for you. So you will jump in your car trying to listen to music but is still in 'not disturb'. That because you are at work. Complicated. Thirsty. Useless. As far you notice they are selling only some camera capabilities. And security (funny to be different when you are managing Android). Personal I did a mistake. My wife has an p30 pro which is far better. Sorry to say that. Just doing the job to be a good phone with no difference in taking pictures but crazy available juice to go through the day.
