What you need to know

  • Most of our readers are interested in buying the Google Pixel 6 Pro.
  • A third of our poll responses voted for the standard Pixel 6 as the phone they want.
  • Some readers are undecided, while a smaller percent are not interested.

The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are up for preorder, and they seem to be selling like hotcakes with Google already sold out of many models and putting buyers on waitlists. However, there are still plenty of places where you can purchase one of the new smartphones, and we asked whether or not our readers were interested in buying either model.

While both phones share much of the same internals, the Pixel 6 Pro does have a higher refresh rate display, additional telephoto lens, and more RAM. That's why it may come as no surprise that the Pixel 6 Pro was the most popular device in our latest poll, with more than 54% saying they'll buy it. The standard Pixel 6 came in with less than 30% of votes, with a smaller percentage still unsure and an even smaller group passing on the new Pixels completely.

Many of our Facebook responses expressed interest in both the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, but many also expressed wanting to wait until reviews came out to make the final decision. But that wasn't the only reason our readers wanted to wait:

One Twitter response explains that even though the Pixel 6 Pro is still cheaper than many other top-end flagships, it's still too pricey.

One commenter, Starfleet Captain, is tempted but wants to hold off for now. "The Pixel 6 Pro is the first Pixel phone I have actually wanted and considered purchasing," they said. "But I think I'll pass... for now. I want to see what Samsung delivers in February before I pull the trigger on a new phone."

Now that Google is putting up a real fight against some of the best Android phones, it'll be curious to see how the phones measure up to 2022 flagship devices, including the upcoming Galaxy S22.
