Google Pixel 6 5g Review
Google Pixel 6 5g is a brand new phone launched by Google. At the time of launch, it was assumed that this phone would not launch in India for several reasons. One of them is the need for more Google chips. If you compare it with Google Pixel 5, then a significant lead is grabbed by Google Pixel 6 5g. we will talk about all these in detail in the following article. The latest flagship smartphone, the Google Pixel 6 5G, was released in late 2021. Its features include several improvements over its predecessor, the Pixel 5.
We found the phone with no advertisement papers as we opened the box. The Google Pixel 6 5g color is very different and unique. This phone has not copied other mobile phones' designs and trends. For example, most mobile phones have uniform colors at the back and cameras at one of their sides. But Google Pixel 6 5g has two colors at its back. One peach color above the camera panel and another light cream color below the camera panel. A separate horizontal camera panel is provided. This form factor and look at the back looks nice and attractive. A small help book or documentation is given inside the box, which contains information about the features and functions of the phone. This documentation is beneficial in understanding the functions of this fantastic phone. A type C to type C cable, an OTG adapter, and a USB type A to type C are given in the box. After all this good news, there is one bad news for the customer: the non-availability of the charger in the box. Most public reviews say that Google has copied this trend from Apple. The way Apple is not providing adapter chargers for its mobile phones, usually known as iPhones, is the same way Google is bringing its phone without chargers into the market.
In Hand Feel
Google Pixel 6 5g has a beautiful in-hand feel, and this camera bump, which is more like a camera strip, is also a good choice by Google. It is raised quite a bit with about 2 mm. But the phone does not bumble because of this, and the stability on the flat surface remains maintained. It feels quite slippery on the sides. Google Pixel 6 5g pro is more curved than the Google Pixel 6 5g. Gorilla glass protection is provided on both sides of the phone.
Ports and Buttons
If we look at the side of the phone below, we will observe a speaker grill, a microphone grill, and a USB-type C port. On the left-hand-side sim card frame is there. Looking at the right-hand side, there is a power button above and a volume rocker below it, which is generally the other way around. These buttons are pretty good, clicky, and comfortable to press. It has a single sim card slot (physical) and supports e-sim. There is no SD card slot.
Weight and Design
The weight of the Google Pixel 6 5g is approx. 206.3 g to 206.3 g. looking at its weight, you may consider it heavy, but it is not felt much heavier when in our hands. The Google Pixel 6 5G introduces a new design language with a centered hole-punch camera cutout on the front and a camera bar on the back containing several camera sensors. The phone contains a glass back and an aluminum frame. It follows a 3:2 body ratio.
The Google Pixel 6 5g has a larger and higher-resolution display than the Pixel 5. The exact specifications may vary, but you can expect an OLED panel with a smooth 90Hz or 120Hz refresh rate for a more fluid user experience. If we compare the Google Pixel 6 5G with Google Pixel 6 Pro, we will know various display changes. The Google Pixel 6 5G displays 6.4 inches, FHD + function, and 90 HZ refresh rate. The Google Pixel 6 Pro has a display of 6.71 inches, QHD + function, and a 120 HZ refresh rate. The Google Pixel 6 Pro has an LTPO screen and an adaptive fast refresh rate. You will also experience HDR 10 + on both mobiles. Both have a center punch-hole camera, and they have good displays too.
Performance and Cameras
The Pixel 6 5G is expected to be powered by Google's custom-designed chipset, which should provide improved performance and energy efficiency compared to previous Pixel devices.
Google has always focused on photography with its Pixel devices, and the Google Pixel 6 5G is likely to continue that trend. This phone has an upgraded camera system with multiple sensors, including wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle lenses. The tensor chipset is customized for its AI and Machine Learning, and with its beauty, it analyses in real-time and does the job of erasing objects from a captured photo very clearly. When you see an edited photo for the first time, you will hardly know whether any object has been erased. Magic eraser does this job very beautifully. Google Pixel 6 5G captures amazing photos in every light condition, like low light areas and very high amounts of light areas, in night mode (night mode takes 5 seconds to capture a photo). In every condition, the camera has performed very well.
The Google Pixel 6 5g has a clean, smooth, fast User Interface. The latest phones of Google come with an Android 12 version. There is no bloatware at all. So, it has all Google apps. The tensor chipset with the fast refresh rate is responsible for this clean and smooth UI.
A Bloatware is a set of programs or instructions that is less useful but occupies a significant space in the memory. These kinds of software are responsible for lagging UI.
Google Tensor Chipset
Google Pixel 6 5G has UFS 3.1 and LPPDR5 RAM type. So, it has the latest version of RAM and ROM. This can be experienced while playing games. For example, the Ultra HD settings work well while running heavy games like BGMI and Call of Duty.

This phone's basic features and functionalities are the same in all versions. Its versions are divided based on storage. RAM is fixed at 8 GB, and you may get a choice in ROM (either 128 GB or 256 GB). Its price is 599 USD which is approx. 45 to 46k.
You will get all sensors, but being vanilla Android, you do not get any face unlock feature in Google Pixel 6 5G, but you have an display finger unlock system. The phone also provides five years of security updates. There is no FM radio or 3.5 mm jack, but it has an IP68 certification and stays underwater for around 30 minutes.
