Part of me wishing I'd got the Pro now but the 6 is such a bargain.

I'd probably not make much use of it though to justify the additional outlay.

Same, but only for the zoom and i'll use it a handful of times - mostly to geek out over.

Massive thread on Reddit, seems to come down to
  • Zoom, possibly just so you can impress your mates
  • 120Hz screen
  • More storage
  • BUT that curved screen

Same storage unless you cough up extra, but yeah I think the 6 is perfect for my use really. I wanted it for the extra size, but I don't think I'll miss the size of my current phone after a week or so.

Don't forgot the 1440p vs 1080p resolution, having been on a 1440p screen the last few years I don't know if I could go back to 1080p. My Mate 20 pro allows me to choose up to 4k res on youtube videos, but does annoyingly not seem to remember my choice and always chooses 480p/1080p or something other than 1440p even when my connection is more than capable...

I'm also not a fan of the bigger bezels on the non Pro, but I prefer the colours!!

The Pixel 6 Pro also has UWB, although not sure there's much use for that right now on Android. Could be a future-proofing point though.

And thinner bezels, more RAM, bigger battery and better selfie cam. I think it's worth the extra personally, but both are good value.

The bigger battery will be needed for the extra screen size, so you're unlikely to get more runtime out of the pro than the non-pro.

Pro uses LTPO and it wouldn't surprise me if it was a more modern low power premium panel than on the 6.

Plenty of screen off usage scenarios too.

This is allegedly good for PD 3.0 and PPS for anyone looking for a charger without spending £40. Seems it's a rebranded ravpower - https://www.ravpower.com/products/rp-pc132-30w-usb-c-pd-wall-charger

Ravpower does 18W max from its USB-C port. The no name brand says it does 30W allegedly even though its voltage calculation result to 25W.

I wouldn't risk that un reputable charger on this phone. For the sake of a few quid go for a decent brand or Google.

Rav power claims it does 30W from it's USB-C port? Rav power can't sell on amazon anymore, hence the unbranding. I'll be risking it, but I understand why most wouldn't.

Voltage calc works out at 30W?
  • USB-C Output: 5V 3A, 9V 2A, 9V 2.22A, 9V 2.77A, 15V 2A, 30W Max.

"Your order is on hold There was a problem with your payment method." hmm... Reapproved in the app, so hopefully still good.
