Has the review embargo been announced? Can't find anything about it.

The limited time to get the headphones makes me think reviews won't drop until the offer expires.

Make use of the cooling off period and make your own mind up.

I will be surprised if Google offers no freebies for the 6 Pro, it would make a massive price difference between both phones.

I read its for both phones.


Good Times.

The average scores taken from the latest 14 test runs leave the Google Pixel 6 Pro’s Tensor SoC with a single-core score of 1,014.63 points and a multi-core score of 2,788.5 points. While the multi-core score average would leave the Pixel 6 Pro at a similar level as the Sony Xperia 1 II in Geekbench’s charts, the strong single-core score would put Tensor way beyond its Snapdragon 888, Snapdragon 865+, and Exynos 2100 rivals in the multi-core chart, which is headed by the Galaxy S21+ 5G (SD888) on 966 points.

Where to buy from? I'm on EE but suspect a contract will be horribly expensive.

I'm fine with buying outright but which retailer do we think is likely to have most stock?

I'm tempted by Amazon or Google. Just going to slam the phone, charger and case into the basket and chuck my CC details at them.

I do like that flat screen of the Pixel 6....

The curved display is one of the features I dislike on my Mate 20 Pro (and the notch). Was hoping to move on from curved screens. Will have to see the keynote and figure out whether to go for the 6 vs 6 Pro.

According to the mod on HUKD the Pixel 6 weight is 207 grams versus the Pixel 6 Pro at 210 grams. Thought there would have been more of a difference. Still swaying towards the 6 Pro.

I'll be buying outright from Google as the warranty service is outstanding. I'm not expecting supply issues on release; this is Google not Apple or Samsung. I appreciate that there are other issues that could affect supply but it won't break my heart if I miss out and I'll be happy to wait. :)

P.s second choice would be John Lewis as they are also great for warranty.

I wonder if we will be able to remove that damn awful Google search bar on the home screen this year. It's an eye sore.

Got my finger on the F5 button ready to get the 6 Pro 256GB

To be at this point, I'm more interested in reviews than the announcement since everything that could leak has leaked.

Honestly pixel 6 at £599 with a £300 pair of Bose headphones is an insane deal in my opinion.

It's really hard to ignore at that price. Still wondering what exactly I'm getting for a extra £250 that is worth that extra...

£599 with the headphones does seem a crazy good deal but... too big. too heavy. But shiney and new... :/

Whoa! Sounds like your no stranger to ordering goods online!!
