    What's everyone going with? (If we ever get to checkout)

    256 Pro in Stormy Black on the Pixel Pass for me. Also going to trade in my 5 for that sweet, sweet $405 trade-in.

    128 black. I've never used more than like 50gb on a phone so I didn't see the point for me in ordering the bigger storage versions

    Amazon shop page works (you won't get the free buds though, I think)

    So, if I go with the pixel pass, I get a new phone (and a new one every 2 years), all those subs, and new buds all for that $600 price?

    Yeah it was working for about 3-4 mins. Was able to get my order in...seems like Sunny may be out of stock for the Pro now

    news that has snuck in, generally under the radar:

    • android 12.1 beta expected Dec 1
    • possible new hardware coming due to Oosterloh closing with "we'll see you very soon" or similar.
    • I believe they both charge at 30W, up from 18W for like the last ~5 years.
    • no direct mention of what UWB will do on the Pro.
    I'm looking forward to reviews with camera samples and pro screen (e.g. waterfall) feedback before.

    The Pixel buds offer expires the day before the street launch, so keep that in mind.

    I don't think there have been any carrier offers released (yet?).

    Don't forget to get a Google One plan to unlock 3% or 10% back on the Google Store if you buy through them.

    Had one in cart and sold out....I have had Pixel 1-5. Pretty weak launch. I imagine it will be fixed and they will have pre-orders opened up again tomorrow.

    They also said they'll be on store shelves 10/28...so even if you don't get a pre-order it seems like physical stock will be available

    What an awful experience. Tried to buy one but couldn't and they sold out before I could through. Then I tried to go through my carrier and they said it wouldn't be here until Dec 1st. Fuck that. Shit kind of pisses me off

    Had a White Pixel Pro all the way to the final check out and it kept failing. Just went through again with a Black Pro and got it.

    I've seen issue like this on previous Pixel Launches but this might have been the worst.

    You guys might want to go back and try again. I just went and got through with a 128 black unlocked when they had previously said those were sold out

    Yeah I just refreshed constantly in 10 minute bursts and more inventory would open up.

    First time I got an order through was for a 128 to ship mid-dec. Canceled that one and finally got the one I wanted, but shipping first week of November. Probably will just deal with that but bit annoying to not get at launch.

    Yeah idk what the hell is going on with them. I had one in checkout that said it would be delivered in December too and I wasn't doing. Then I came back and got that one and it told me October 28 so maybe your date will get moved up.

    Just had the order cancelled on me because they were "unable to validate some of my information."

    Ordered the pro + pixel buds. Just loaded up the site and ordered with no issues. Delivery date estimated Oct 28. Glad I skipped the earlier in the day issues


    Also, I have no idea why I ordered this phone. Really had no plans to.

    decided to hold off though presale offer is tempting.

    $405 off via P5 trade in (the thing only cost $650 AT)
    Free Pixel Buds A
    10% back ($97) in the form of store credit.

    Puts the price for the 128GB P6 Pro very close to $400, if not under.

    Been doing the rounds with Google Financing and Google Store support. The long and short is that none of my order attempts have gone through and rather than make another attempt, they would prefer it if I just wait while they escalate things.

    I applied for the financing and it told me I was denied. Then like an hour and half later I was buying the one I bought and it let me do the financing. I'm still not 100% sure my order is legit tbh

    only thing i want to know is will it let you do the fast wireless charging with any qi charger, or just the pixel stand?

    Charging speeds are one of the biggest upgrades to the Pixel 6 series, with 30W wired charging and put to 23W speeds on the company’s new wireless charger, the Pixel Stand.

    However, those faster wireless speeds are limited solely to the Pixel Stand. Instead, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are limited to 12W wireless charging on any other Qi-enabled wireless charger. This is still a minor upgrade over the speeds the Pixel 5 was capable of, but it’s also still a bit slower than the competition as Samsung and OnePlus phones both charge at 15W on non-official fast wireless chargers. That said, Google still beats out the iPhone’s 7.5W cap.

    Got 6 Pro through Verizon. I hate purchasing through them, but they said it'll arrive on the 28th and gave me $350 credit for trade in on my P2 XL. Now to wait.

    Thats a really nice trade in credit for the Pixel 2XL.

    Google in only giving me $405 on my Pixel 5.

    I tried to order through Verizon yesterday and it kept fucking up right at the end. I think it's a problem with our business account. I don't know. I joined the waitlist for the Google Store.

    I take it there is a new model stand to take advantage of that wireless charging speed? Not the stand I bought with my pixel 3.
