Every new smartphone grapples with problems that are more or less bad. The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are no exception. There are solutions to some problems that are already known – partly from Google itself.
Google Pixel 6 (Pro): Known Issues
Update from November 2, 2021: Google was able to fix the problem with CO2 (see below).
Google started shipping the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro a few days back. Like every new smartphone, problems arose shortly after. There are known issues with the display, camera and software.
Shimmering Display on Pixel 6 Pro
Some users have reported that the LTPO OLED display flickers with the Pixel 6 Pro’s variable refresh rate. If you turn on the smartphone via the Power button and hold it down for a little longer than necessary. Then stripes may appear on the display and it may start to flicker.
Google has already promised a software update for this problem (source: golem) Since this is not a hardware issue but a software issue, Google can quickly and easily fix the problem with the December Update.
spot on camera
“Spot on camera” appears on both the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro (source: smartdroid) Specifically, though, it’s about the spots on the images, not directly on the camera. Especially in the case of low-light images, users have discovered a bright spot that cannot be explained.
At present there is no solution to this problem. It is not clear whether this is a software or hardware problem. Google may be facing this problem, as the camera is one of the most important selling points for a smartphone.
Day-one-patch could not be installed (fixed)
Google has released a one-day patch for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, which must be installed immediately after setup to get the final software. O2 customers cannot install this patch because it has not been offered to them (source: cash)
The problem can be solved by inserting a different SIM card in the Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro that works in a different network – ie from Telecom or Vodafone.
Updates: Google has adjusted the update server. O2 users can now install the day-on patch as well.
