What you need to know
- We asked our readers if they experienced recent problems with their Pixel 6.
- Nearly 70% indicate that their Pixel 6 has worked fine prior to the January 2022 update.
- The January update is meant to address problems that arose with the December update.
While it's fun to complain about the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro and all the software bugs these phones have seemingly come across, the experience has not been the same for everyone. That's why we asked out users if they were experiencing problems with their phones lately.
Of nearly 900 responses, almost 70% stated that their Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro has been working just fine. That's been the case for some Android Central staff, who still consider the devices to be some of the best Android phones on the market. However, nearly 30% of Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro users probably wouldn't agree, indicating that they have been having problems.
One reader, Gordon Lutz, says they haven't had any problems with their device, even after installing the problematic December update that many owners never received:
One reader, chefdave12118, hasn't been as lucky and wishes they could go back to their OnePlus 8 Pro:
Many users seem to have received the January update already, and so far, it appears to have addressed many of the problems. That said, it's only been a couple of days since it started rolling out, so we'll be on the lookout to see how our units fare.
