    So better battery life should be expected in the Pro. Possibly combined with a bigger battery.

    I expected the Pro to be an instant purchase and cost £899, but am now thinking of waiting for the reviews of both, despite the Pro being cheaper then budgeted for.

    Honestly I'm the same, my pixel experience has been good whereas I've owned OnePlus, Samsung, Nokia etc and had issues and dumb bugs/problems over time. Pixels have been the least irritating.

    Waiting for reviews.
    I already purchased an S21U to replace my Pixel2XL, but I'm tempted by the 6Pro

    It's a fingerprint sensor. It's been around for years.

    Definitely the 6 Pro for me. I'd love to go for the lighter colour but just worried there might be a silver band visible at the front in a darker case.

    Any thoughts?

    That was my thought process too. I think you'll be able to see the lighter coloured bezels on the front of the display which, to me, is offputting. Will probably go for the black for that very reason.

    I wouldn't worry... Only time I had issues was when the first in screen finger print scanners came out. They're all supported now.

    Regardless, if Google is offering the same freebie for both phones, it means the Pixel 6 is an even better deal! I thought the Pixel 6 might get a lesser freebie, with the Bose 700 only for the Pixel 6 Pro pre-orders.

    Definitely fake considering they got the time zone wrong in the T&Cs.

    What changed exactly? Under screen FP scanners have been around for a good while now on other Android phones. I've had no issues with Barclays, HSBC, Monzo, Revolut, Nationwide, Bitwarden, Authy, etc using the FP to log in.

    Why bundle it with Bose headphones, would their own buds make more sense?
