Another day, another Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro bug
The black square in the right corner is another Pixel 6 series bug
Some of those Pixel 6 series users affected have found the black dot right behind the front camera while others are complaining about the black dot that has started to form in the upper right corner of the phone. Users consider the black marking to be the work of dead pixels on the phone screen.

Personally, I can’t say that my experience with the Pixel 6 Pro was so bad that it would deter me from buying the Pixel 7 Pro. But not everyone is going to be so sanguine about this. Google is once again forced to prove that it can build a top flagship Android phone and there are a few things that Google needs to worry about. Those, like yours truly, who buy a Pixel to get an earlier shot at the next version of Android, see that Samsung and Google are now good buds and Samsung has seriously stepped up its Android update game.

It sure will be interesting to see whether Google recognizes all of the dynamics at play here. There were plenty of highs for the Alphabet subsidiary as the fourth quarter of 2021 was the best in Pixel history. And the company’s first Google Tensor chipset helped create popular features like the magic eraser.
But the lows put Pixel 6 series owners in an express elevator headed directly to the basement. Some of these consumers ended up dropping their Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro for the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra or the iPhone 13 Pro Max, and Google will not get a chance to win back their business. As a result, Google needs to show those that kept their new Pixel that they did the right thing and that their belief in Google paid off.
Somewhere in Mountain View, the Pixel team should be making sure that the Pixel 7 line will deliver the phone that the Pixel 6 series should have been And then the team needs to figure out how to make sure that those who held on to the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro get a shot at owning this year’s models so they can finally see what Google can do with a flagship Android phone.
