    This phone.... Just re added my right thumb and index, twice each. First attempt to unlock, fail. FUUUUUUUUUUUUU.

    Still my original left thumb registration works perfectly. I don't get it. Is it me?

    No, a lot of people are struggling. But Google's response is "moisturise your hands and press harder" :D

    I resubmitted my headphone claim yesterday which was 14 days after CPW dispatch and it's just been approved.

    Its the one thing that is really putting a downer on the phone, everything else I love. But the scanner and lack of face unlock is ******* me off! :o

    I finally got my headphones approved after 8 days. I believe this was due to ID mobiles. Sending a carphone warehouse invoice especially with it stating a 27th of my order when that was actually the dispatch date and the order date was the 19th or 20th and because my invoice said Carphone warehouse Google required me to send them more info and proof so I have to send them my ID mobile confirmation email which thankfully got approved today

    Any bought their pixel direct from EE? Is it locked to EE or unlocked?

    Looks like you are already unlocked

    Most devices sold by EE are 'locked' to EE. This means they won't work with another network's SIM card.

    The following devices are already unlocked, including old devices:

    • All Google Pixel devices
    • All Oppo devices
    • All OnePlus devices

    Finally got the headphones - took two extra submissions spread over days, they checked on the last of the 4 day each time.

    Hmm interestingly I noticed very similar, the left thumb that I set up initially works flawlessly, I only seem to have an issue with my right one which I set up after and have tried setting up again since. I don't think I'm having as much of an issue as you as my right does usually work, but its interesting that its only the right I seem to get an issue with.

    The left thumb isn't the original, original, I've set it up since the update where they changed it slightly. Its just that my left thumb seems to continue to work, where the right thumb and finger never work for more than a day or so.

    Very frustrating.

    My Pixel 6 went back today, still impressed with it but should have went for the Pro which was unavailable until last few hours before headphone offer expired so I'll keep an eye out on Black Friday deals.

    Out of the negatives, the FSP is lacklustre for a 2021 phone and while camera is great overall, it can be on an overprocessed side and night mode can get a little weird sometimes plus has a lot of vignetting on some shots. Hopefully something they can tune with software but overall felt like a solid enough upgrade in that department.

    Screen was also great but get what someone meant when they said it felt cheap to the touch, it does feel quite hollow when you touch a nail against it, I remember it was the same with P30 Pro.

    This is just nit picking though and for the money I think it's a fantastic handset.

    Screen feels cheap ? Feels like glass to me!

    Surprisingly not a complaint I've seen from the million reviews I watched :D

    Gorilla glass too :p

    But yeah it's not the material itself, just the fact that it sounds hollow when your nails tap against against screen, someone else in the thread mentioned that the screen felt "cheap".

    Some of these complaints are hilarious. I'm glad I'm not that fussed about resolution or the way the screen feels when tapping with your nail. :D

    According to a couple teardown videos it might be due to the screen not being bonded to the rest of the phone, which is common with other phones to allow the screen to act as a heat dissipater. Could explain why it sounds hollow since only the edges is sealed to the rest of the phone.

    Not a complaint anyway just something I noticed as I was using it side by side with current phone.

    Yeah, the issue I had with mine was actual damage. The top layer got pierced in a few places or even came off. I've heard it's a problem with certain colours of the leather they use.
