    Has anyone seen one in-store? Seems like plenty of demo models are the source of clips/photos/etc on the web.

    I would like to hold in hand before the pre-order promo ends tomorrow at midnight. I cannot see anything on their site, but I'm not above calling the store, or going into VZW, AT&T etc.

    Just got my shipping notification email...

    And another saying it's actually on hold and I need to verify payment. At least I should get some more sweet, sweet Google store credits over this.

    After reading some early reviews, I think I'll go with the 6 instead of the 6 pro. It sounds like it boils down to if you want to pay the extra $300 for a telephoto lens as many of the upgrades aren't as noticeable as they seem on paper.

    It was being insanely slow at first. There times times where it is lightning fast so I feel like it has the ability to do it but I miss the back fingerprint scanner on my 4a.

    I miss using the swipe down on the fingerprint scanner for the notification drawer like freaking crazy. That's a huge loss imo.

    FedEx by me is a dumpster fire. They were supposed to deliver the Pixel Buds yesterday but the driver didn't feel like coming down my street so he marked it as "Address Doesn't Exist".

    Today I got my phone but still no pixel buds.

    I only use my thumbs and have had no issues. Maybe redo the print and really focus on getting all parts of your thumb facing different directions

    Loved the old backside reader...had to get used to the front side with my OnePlus 7 Pro, so maybe that's why i'm not having any issues, because I inherently know what does/doesn't work already

    4XL just updated to Android 12 and there are some major changes to the dropdown/notification menu

    the notification menu now takes up the entire screen and the options like Flashlight, Airplane Mode, Auto Rotate, etc are all massive. Also, there is no separate options for Wifi and Mobile data now, it's just Internet

    and the clock display on the lock screen looks stupid

    edit, 45 minutes later and none of these things bother me anymore

    Found another thing I fucking hate about the fingerprint reader. Woke up in the middle of the night and went to unlock my phone. I didn't get my thumb over the sensor 100% and [​IMG]

    It really did startle the shit out of me

    What does this button do, exactly? If it disables wifi and mobile data, isn't that just going to airplane mode with the ability to make/receive calls? Without this workaround, what do you do if the wifi is just bad and you want to use the carrier's data instead?

    No, it brings up a menu that control both mobile data and wifi. It doesn't disable anything.

    Tap internet, next window pops up, hit to turn wifi off

    Haven't thought about the fingerprint at night but I've notice it illuminates my entire thumb when I put it down to be read.

    Got the Pro a few hours ago. Mines hot, almost burning a hole in my pocket. The front thumb reader and edges will take a few days to get used to, but a huge upgrade from what I had prior.

    Held both today. The fit/finish of the 6 is wayy better than the pro.

    I have large hands (more so wider hand, than extra long fingers) and the P6 pro is still substantial in my hand. I seriously wonder why they went so large.

    My S9 is nearing the end of its life. Figure there will be a lot of good deals the next month or two. I should probably check back in a week or two but think its better to go Pixel or get the S21?

    What's the rhyme or reason for the digital clock on the lock screen? Sometimes it's huge in the middle of the screen. Other times it's much smaller in the top left

    It gets smaller if you have a notification.
