Another day, another Pixel 6 bug, Pixel 6 Pro
The black square in the right corner is another Pixel 6 series bug
Some of the affected Pixel 6 series users have found the black dot just behind the front camera, while others are complaining about the black dot starting to form in the top right corner of the phone. Users consider the black mark to be the work of dead pixels on the phone screen.
Personally, I can’t say my experience with the Pixel 6 Pro was bad enough that it would put me off buying the Pixel 7 Pro. But not everyone will be so confident about this. Google is once again forced to prove it can build a top flagship Android phone, and there are a few things Google needs to take care of. For those like you who are genuinely buying a Pixel to get an earlier chance at the next version of Android, see that Samsung and Google are now good friends and Samsung has seriously stepped up its Android update game.

The upcoming flagship Motorola Moto X30 Pro could end up becoming a serious rival of Google
It will certainly be interesting to see if Google recognizes all of the dynamics at play here. There have been many highs for the Alphabet subsidiary as the fourth quarter of 2021 was the best in Pixel’s history. And the company’s first Google Tensor chipset helped develop popular features like the magic eraser.
But the lows landed Pixel 6 series owners in an express elevator that went straight to the basement. Some of these consumers have ditched their Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro for the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra or iPhone 13 Pro Max, and Google will have no chance of winning back their business. As a result, Google needs to show those who kept their new Pixel that they did the right thing and that their faith in Google has paid off.
Somewhere in Mountain View, the Pixel team should be making sure that the Pixel 7 line will deliver the phone that the Pixel 6 line should have been. And then the team has to figure out how to ensure those who are sticking with the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro get a shot at owning this year’s models so they can finally see what Google is doing with a flagship Android phone can.
