  • It works just stunningly.

    I absolutely love its google-y features.

  • 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.

    Pros
    • Battery (around 45hrs with 8.5 SOT)
    • Smoothness
    • Apps open quickly
    • Updates
    • Pixel features (magic eraser, live caption, etc.)
    • Feeling
    Cons
    • Display (compared to other options like the A52)
    • Doesn't come with a charger
    • Weight (feels heavy)
    • Need to tap screen to use the fingerprint reader
    • Sometimes the notifications take time
    • Cellular data drains the battery quickly

  • 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

    Pros
    • Fast and fluid
    • Good cams
    • Good battery life
    • Good build (back scratches tho)
    Cons
    • Totally utterly shite FPS
    • Not worth £399
    • No face unlock
    • Screen too small for mediafor me

  • 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!

    It is not a mobile for Sánchez

    I got it for 340 and at that price it's a master buy. It is very nice, small and weighs little The screen is not the best but it is quite good and I do not even notice the brother hertz if you have 240 like the top, or the 60 of a lifetime and nobody anywhere site I heard him say he wanted more hertz. I have heard to ask for better camera and calamari a la romana but never hercios. It is submersible. It has a top processor and adds what none: TITAN M2 which, from what I have understood after a lot of looking, is a processor with its own RAM memory and its tiny storage that is strictly dedicated to saving your passwords and making sure that nothing strange gets in. on your mobile silently and immediately. If we add to this that it has at least one monthly update, we can safely say that it surpasses any other (along with the 7 and 7 Pro) in terms of security. Then for 9 bucks a month you get 2TB of cloud storage, 24/7 phone support for anything, and a super easy encrypted virtual network (VPN for your Wi-Fi or data). That is to say PUTIN LEVEL SECURITY. You can play everything, of course. But dear President, I know that you read Kimovil in the WC; the Selfie

    Pros
    • Everything in general
    • you are secret agent
    Cons
    • Quite slow fast charging
    • It does not come with a charger
    • cameras at night...
    • It only brings space for one SIM

    PERFECT FOR DAILY USE

    I come from the mid-range of realme and xiaomi and having clean android 13 shows. 10 cameras, fluid and fast. At the moment very satisfied and google quality. To put a but it would be the battery that although it reaches the end of the day I have had cheaper phones with a longer duration. Even so with normal use you arrive left over at the end of the day

    Pros

    The front camera leaves a lot to be desired.

    I bought this device because of the good reputation of its camera. I come from a xiaomi note 9 pro (it's old), and the front camera looks better, especially at night. At night the front camera of the pixel 6a seems bad to me. And as for the videos, with the main camera, indoors, they also look regular, the Xiaomi continues to look better. The photo in the main camera is good. I would like to know if the same thing happens to you. Thanks!

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.
