Got the 6 (traded in 4a 5G that I got after trading in Pixel 2)

Why did you get the pro over the regular? Most tech reviewers said it wasn't worth it

Android 12 sucks

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Pro has some good perks over the regular.

First impressions?
I try to sound as intelligent as possible.

Full review not out yet.

ETA: these things may not affect the actual experience of using the phone. Just that battery life and performance could have been better if these were fixed. Also the fact that the middle cores are A76 and not A77 or A78.

Just noticed that you have "Delta Dirt" listed in your programs, is that the equivalent of "Economy Minus"?   ;)

While the Note 22 may not come into existence, it seems quite possible that the s22 ultra will be essentially the same thing. The Pixel is a no go for me for now.

This is one of the very frustrating elements of the phone.
