[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've had my Google Pixel 6 Pro for about 3 weeks. I was ecstatic to finally own a Pixel, because I've heard nothing but great things about them and couldn't wait to see for myself. Upon unboxing my new phone, I noticed it's very slick and definitely needed a case, to prevent it from slipping out of my hands. The Dark Grey color of this phone is absolutely gorgeous and one of my favorite colors. I really like the big screen size, but am not too fond of the curved edges.The initial setup was simple and didn't take much time to complete. I simply plugged in a USB cord, from one phone to the other and followed the instructions on the screen. I use my phone for everything, from family to work and I was always running out of space. I'm very happy with the storage size, it's exactly what I need. The picture and audio quality are both amazing! I'm constantly taking photos and if you have a toddler, you know how difficult that can be and upsetting it is, when you miss the perfect photo opportunity. With my last phone, it lagged before taking photos, everything would be a big blur and I'd miss every special moment. I'm glad I no longer need to worry about that? The fast speed on this Pixel, makes work so much easier and I'm now able to complete tasks, in record time! As for online shopping, which I do a lot of. The Google Pixel 6 Pro does Not meet my needs. When I use my shopping app, it opens to the product just fine, but once I change size or color, I can no longer add the item to my cart. Half of my Google links wont even open, unless I сору and paste them in a messaging app and it's not just the link, because I have no issues opening them on my other devices. Both of these issues are fixed with each update, but they're only fixed temporarily and for a short period of time. One of the main reasons I was excited about owning this phone is, the long battery life. Unfortunately the battery doesn't last as long as it should. Like I stated before, I use my phone for work and I'm not even able to get in a full day's work, before I have to stop and charge it, for nearly 3 hours. Unfortunately there are more cons! I don't mind my phone having Google assistant on it, it's actually quite convenient. My issue is the assistant taking the place of what should be the power button. It took me 5 minutes to figure out that I needed to hold down the assistant button and volume up, to power off the phone, due to it over heating. Yes, this phone overheats and it overheats quickly, with simple things like reading emails or messages. I honestly hope that most of or all of these issues can be fixed, because the Google Pixel 6 Pro has a lot of potential to be a really great phone!
