  • It Is A Good Phone But With Costs

    Battery- It will drain quite quickly and If You Use Your Phone For 4 Or More hours, You Might Have To Charge It By Midday

    Camera- Very Good, No Bad Experience

    Network- It Is Not A Very Good Experience Here As It Tends To Not Allow You To Use Chrome Despite Having 5 Full Signal Bars

    Software- Very Clean Software With No Bloatware

    Overall- It Is A Very Good All Rounder Phone With A Few Disadvantages. Look Past Them And It Isn't A Problem At All

    Awesome phone! Finally a great phone I can afford.
    Camera is really good for this price. Pixel UI is the best Only issue was fingerprint was so frustrating, but after March update its seamless now.

  • a huge disappointement. I do not recommend

    I have the pixel 2 xl, and bought this pixel 6A because I wanted a small phone. The first 2 things I notice is the horrible screen quality. It's a cheap oled. The colors are dull and there is no punchy collors. It's like an LCD. I had other 1080P lcd screens which were better than this pixel 6a screen. I couldn't use it so long.

    Second and most importanatly, the camera is a huge downgrade. I compared it to the pixel 2 xl and the latter has much details and contrast. Overall, the pixel 2 xl has a better camera, especially the selfie.

    I prefer to use my pixel 2 XL over this pixel 6A because of the screen and the camera. The pixel 5A 5G is definitly better than this pixel 6A.

  • Solid option for 300dlls (even 400dlls)

    Usually last about 45-53hrs, with 8-9hrs of SOT (I don't play games, just videos and social media), the connectivity in my case its similar to mi mix 2s, and better than the S10e. The display is meh compared to the s10e or A52, but has good enough brightness for using it in direct sunlight. The pixel features aren't as much as (for example) what samsung or xiaomi have, but they are super useful, magic eraser, the nightmode its really good for a phone, live transcription works decently, voice typing is REAALLY useful when you need it and works really well, etc.
    The fingerprint works 9/10 times, but its downgrade having to tap the screen and then press the fingerprint reader, rather than just tapping the fingerprint reader and unlocking the phone.
    Compared to my mix 2s (with pixel rom) and S10e, the time it takes the pixel to restart is like 1/3 of samsung, and the camera is just WAAAY better, the audio is better and a little bit louder than the S10e, the apps open WAY faster in the pixel, like you can notice it when you switch phones.
    I recommend not using back ups and setting the phone up like it was your first one, I haven't experienced overheating (although I don't use a case so maybe that's why) issues, so maybe that's one of the reasons for which I have had a great experience.
    IMO the vibration its kinda strong, so I usually use it to the minimum (except for notifications). The flash its okay.
    I think if you use airplane mode and just connect to WiFi you can get 10-13 hours of SOT as some people get, but thats because cellular data REALLY drains the battery compared to WiFi, I don't know if Bluetooth has the same problem, but definitely not as bad as cellular data. Using airplane mode with WiFi ON, and using WiFi without airplane can make the difference between 7-8 SOT and 9-11 SOT.

    In general, I recommend the phone for anyone that doesn't game and likes a clean/simple android experience with nice to haves.

  • Rubbish fingerprint wrecks the phone

    This phone is like having keys to a new apartment, but the keys don't fit the lock and you can't get in properly. It's a fantastic place, but worthless unless you can get in every time. Looks like the P7 resolves the issues so hold out for the P7a

  • Ok for daily work

    The Google Pixel 6a is a good smartphone. Captivating design, good battery, interesting UI (quick android stock).
    The photos are good, but the night mode is a 4/10.
    Google updates its Pixels every month for the security and for 5 years after they drop them in the market, so this is an excellent news for Android users like me.
    Sometimes the Google Cam has bugs and it can seem a little slow when saving photos in the gallery.
    Gaming is ok, even the social networks like Facebook, TikTok, Instagram etc.
    Oh, even the weight is excellent!

    Pixel, Android purity and great quality

    The Pixel 6A is an EXCELLENT mobile, for example if you are an Apple user let's say that you will find that purity, that quality in Google phones, the other brands are derivatives of Android that will never achieve what Google and Apple have . Excellent camera, fluidity, pure Android, security (thanks to its dedicated Titan M2 chip), constant updates for at least 5 years. For what it costs, it beats many phones from Chinese giants that cost twice as much. Yes, there are some buts, and you can see where these "A" series are cut compared to their older brothers, for example the chassis is made of aluminum but with a plastic cover and it does not have wireless charging. That is if it has the same Google Tensor processor as the 6th generation range, which is very fine and has advanced AI functions. I bought it when the patch that fixed the overheating had already been released, so with the latest updates, 0 problems of that type. The fingerprint leaves something to be desired, if you don't have the sensor part very clean it is difficult to detect.

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
