  • I’ve had hands on the pixel 6 pro for about 20 minutes in a controlled environment. Ie no photos etc. but I could whizz through the os, load apps watch ILaward etc. I can say that it’s the most smooth os experience I’ve ever had on any phone ever! From the spec I know it’ll not be the most powerful phone on paper or benchmarks. But it’s more than enough that I know. iPhone is a prime example of raw power that is utterly unnecessary! Absolutely not needed. I’d say 60 percent plus of iPhones raw power is not harnessed or even needed. Software just doesn’t need that sort of brute force to work well! So what tensor is bringing is a way more sensible and grown up approach to how we use our phones. It’ll get smarter as it’s used. If you want to game it has a 20 core Gpu which will be more than adequate. But things like machine learning and AI are much more useful. Well done Google, you are bringing us what we want! And what is useful and sensible and useable!

    • I think it comes down to optimization. Currently the fastest and most fluid phone I've felt is the Sony Xperia 1 III. Every other phone I've tried feels laggy and slow in comparison. I haven't tried the Pixel 6 yet and I'm betting it's as smooth or even smoother than the Xperia 1 III

  • Nice BLM wristband. Unsubscribed.

    • @Farid Ali awww nooo why?

    • @Lee bro I’m calling you a clown

    • @Farid Ali agreed!

    • Clown

  • You are the best! I just ordered my Pixel 6!

  • pixel: we have tensor chip phone user: longer phone usage? can browse faster? can store more data? better call quality? pixel: no, it has better and smarter spy inside your phone

  • Good to see there's a nice lower-tier phone for people who can't afford iPhones, that doesn't catch fire like a Samsung.

  • putting AI in a hardware chip? sounds like Theranos marketing mumbo jumbo bull*. why do you need AI in a phone?

  • The only way a google phone to succeed is to create an ecosystem google phone, watch, buds, item finder and goggle chrome etc...

  • Can a reviewer under embargo be impartial and honest? What is Google hiding by corrupting all these youtubers. If you thing your product is better, Then why impose embargo?

  • Watching this on my.... Nexus 6P. Hmm...🤔 you though I was gonna say my pixel 6 pro 😃

  • Google has gotten better because the work they do for China helping that country with their tracking of people violating human rights all because of their social credit score.

  • My moto g stylus 2021 has 48 megapixels and a stylus WHY IS NOBODY TALKING ABOUT THISSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!

  • I always love all your videos but there’s a lot of strange speculation in this one. I see the potential of tensor, but there’s a great chance it’s just to break away from Qualcom, who’s moving at a snails pace and has a grip on so many technologies

  • Have to wait until they restock 😫😭😭😭😭😀, have been wanting a Google phone and it looks like this is it, just waiting for the real reviews and the hype to cool down to see the truth!!!!

  • And Microsoft Just starting designing their own Chip as well. Hmmmm

  • Live in

  • Weaker GPU (Mali)

    • And Exynos is now getting AMD Rdna2 Gpu.

  • OK, Microsoft, when are you going to join the CPU game?

  • I'm glad they are done with the shitdragon chips. These greedy fucks don't release the schematics for the companies to provide more than 2 years of android support. And they've been doing this since the sd801 era. I hope they burn

  • Thought something was wrong with my headphones at first :)

  • Who else is watching this on 10/19 before the Pixel event and seeing everything that Marques is talking about coming to fruition

  • i thought it was out zzzzzz

  • Time left : 1:35.

  • According to most reviewers Google was beating Samsung and Apple with their mid tier phones. So I'm gonna go ahead and just call the Pixel the new King..

  • i can'ttt waittt, just a few hours to reveal

  • 🤙

  • Hi Marques, did you get a review device? When will de embargo end?

  • I wish google would release the pixel 6 in my country (brazil) 😪

  • It’s wild so many people still care about smart phones. I haven’t really felt like I’ve gotten any real advancement from my iPhone 7Plus. I did upgrade last year to the 12. I do miss android OS.

    • If you feel that way, you should definitely go back to Android. The changes and advancements made in phones largely come from the Android side of the market. Like I was shocked when I heard that apple was just now adding picture in picture mode a year ago. Like I've had that in my phones since 2016 or sooner

  • My biggest problem with the pixel I had last year was sending videos though text message. The video would always be degraded after being sent....... has pixel done anything about that?

    • @DJ DanceAlone well since apple does not support it. Apple to apple you are good. Android to Android your ate good. Apple to Android you have to use one of many third party services.

    • @westin bye So, RCS completely solves that problem .... cool

    • @DJ DanceAlone well depending on when it was it was probably pre RCS. But Viber, WhatsApp, signal, telegram and others will solve that problem for sure.

    • @westin bye so in the past, when I had a pixel and I would send video to my wife who also had a pixel, the quality would be very grainy. What are some apps that can deal with that?

    • That's an iPhone problem you can use a bunch of different apps to fix that.

  • The Pixel 6 listing price tag of Target, the second largest chain store in the United States, has been exposed. Pixel 6 128GB is priced at US$599 and Pixel 6 Pro 128GB is priced at US$898.

    • The pro is a great deal! But the 6 is even a better deal. I thik I would go with the 6 at that price.

  • I've been a Samsung user since day 1 but now I'm thinking abt switching to pixel 6 pro 😉

  • Imagine Google pixel 6 using another is, not Android

  • Greatest introduction

  • MKBHD, if you had a 2 year old Note 10+ and you wanted the best sub $1k phone on the market within the next month or so, what would you pick? I'm upgrading soon and I've been out of the "know everything about phones" game for a hot minute. Thanks dude great content as always!

  • The more I realise I don't care as much about my phone, I begin to hate the curved screens more and more. Still probably not gonna stop me from getting the pro versions though. Haha

  • One question remains, suspiciously, under the radar from Google and the press alike: Google invests on in house SoC, that means better Android optimization for the Pixel (the Apple way). What does this mean though for the rest of Android manufacturers?? Will they somehow be forced to use Tensor chip too? What about performance and optimization on Qualcomm chips? And what about future support on these chips?

  • This is a big deal. Android is 80% of the Smart phone market. The media focus is so strong on iphones 15%

  • "first generation" ackkkk that makes me so excited!!!

  • Google phones are disappointing as they don't follow on what they introduce. Eg soli. On the topic of updates, Apple wants you to buy the next phone. Don't forget how the updates pushed the old phones to run out of battery

  • That's a bold and smart step forward by Google. You covered it pretty well. Overall consumers and Google benefit more.

  • It all comes down to them keeping the headphone jack for me lol! Been using nothing but Galaxy series phones for decades & I haven't upgraded past the 10 because they got rid of them.. Hopefully they kept it so I can buy it!

  • Any update in India Launch?

  • 1:06 - I honestly feel that looks amazing. Like a Daft Punk helmet.

  • hands down the biggest hands on utube

  • Finally switching Iphone to Android with the Pixel 6

    • Good going, I switched about 8 years ago 👍

  • For anyone interested in right to repair supposedly these phones might possibly have cameras that cannot be swapped between phones like the iPhone 12 did. Look more into it if you’re interested

  • will i be able to mine crypto with the pro?

  • Marques on 19th. So I have been using Pixel 6 pro for couple of weeks now ...

  • Google is taking a bold step and I believe it's for good because they can control how they want to mold android to be more performant. Will be amazing to see how they implement it.

  • 🔥🔥🔥

  • Pixel > iPhone

    • Actually another option is squeezing the camera into the top bezel, if that's possible.

    • When will under screen cameras be mainstream in Pixels/iPhones etc? I preferred bigger bezels anyway (for appearance, grip, functionality), but if they're all going to have full basically bezel-less displays, given the front-facing camera, the only way to have the display undisrupted is to have the camera under the screen. I hated the notch trend, I hate the hole-punch camera less, but I still hate it. I think the only under screen cameras at the moment have pretty bad quality. When will the quality get to a point where it's adequate for companies to use in their flagship phones (iPhone, Google Pixel, Samsung Galaxy S, etc)?

  • The pixel 5 the conjob 19 flop phone. Satanic 666 Google support the face diper so no facial recognition. Are they worth supporting?

  • I would like to see where they don’t make phones ever year maybe every 2 to 3yrs.

  • When google will launch pixel 6 in India?

  • yo

  • 倪哥配Pixel,没安好心

  • This was great video

  • Thanks you for the video

  • Can't wait until they come out

  • Yep these phones look great can't wait to see the new sectors either 💯💥💥💥💚💥💚💙✊👊🤲✋

  • The phones look newer and better than the previous years ones 💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💯💯💚💚💚💚

  • I just want Google to make pixel glasses.

  • I'm afraid of the LACK OF SECURITY that Google's smartphone offers to users. How can we block a company or friends of that company from knowing anything about us. Is it possible to use location (location only) in News, Maps or another service.

    • Yes. They have a ton of great security and privacy feature. They leave it up to you really.

  • I buy pixel 6 how much ? Out?

  • Boring content as usual

  • Will the pixel 6 or 6 pro also have face recognition unlocking besides fingerprint?

  • Do pixel 6 or iPhone 13

  • I bet Pixel 6a will be cheaper and better again.

  • Pixel video and selfie 🤳 r very bad

  • Man I really hate that block on the back of the phone where the camera is located. I was in need of a phone and keen to get a Pixel 6 but once I saw the back of it I changed my mind. Instead, I went back to a Pixel 4a 5G; I cant be more happy with it.

  • I love Android. But I live in Europe and have a prepaid data plan in Europe prepaid plans are 28 days long so they can charge you 13 times a year. I am sick and tired of resetting my Android data every 28 days. I will post this in every android phone revue I see until Google puts a 28 day plan in the OS please like and share if you are in the same boat as me.

  • Im so excited finally i can upgrade to a worthy phone for the bag.... Hope i can get it soon ....

  • Those early seconds expressions 😂😂

  • Your communication style is so clear , concise

  • Very possible this phone will outperform all other Android devices. While I loved by Pixel 3XL and it lasted longer than most phones I use, I had move to Samsung for the Note 10+ and 20 Ultra because the 4 wasn't strong enough and the 5 didn't come with an XL. I'd love to go back to Google to escape Samsung's bloatware and annoying version of Android but Google doesn't seem to have anything to sell me on here. As great as the 6 Pro may work, it'll still be smaller than my Samsung, have no real upgrade on my RAM or Hard Drive... All that leaves is processing and I don't see anything in any of the videos about the Tensor to draw me over

  • fun fact: this video was shooted by pixel 6 pro

  • Funny how these company's dont push brand loyalty? Give people what they want !

  • ooooh... i hope CalyxOS will be supported on PX6, google phones are good only as a vessel...

  • This is gonna be Google's first ever masterpiece in their smartphone collection.

  • Broke my phones screen a few minutes ago and not worth fixing for the price finna but a new phone y'all think the pixel 6 would be worth it?

  • Holy cow bro damn wtf… that design is stunning and a big jump compared to earlier ones 🤩🤩😍😍

  • You feel shy to say another point on Apple making policy is Downgrading Battery Health- So that people buy expensive batteries which may keep them away for system slowness;

  • I stopped buyin google phones because they stopped supporting them like 3 yrs later. Iphone 7 still getting ios 15

  • Sadly no 3.5mm jack :(

  • Thinking is good but they have f being the compact phone which gave a very good feel in the hand and was esay to use but now it's like any other android phone,being compact with Matte finish made it more distinguish from other phones but now I don't know how they are going, it's more like any other android phone(boaring) thought 6 would be more like 5 which looked great just needed update in hardware.

  • I really hope they have a budget / midrange phone with 120hz

  • I hope Google's chips are great so most android phone manufacturers can use their chips. It would make updating Android phones a lot smoother and faster.

  • Does anyone know if Pixel works better with Android? I really want to get one but I just didn't like the buggy experience on Android I had before with Samsung.

  • I don't think that's going to sell that well because of the camera popping out too nuch

  • when is the pixel coming

  • @6:35 when this guy says that google "wants to optimise android for as long as possible...cos they want to keep you on that phone" he's either delusional and ignorant, or outright deceiving cos he's being paid to be. No hardware manufacturer wants their customers lingering on older generation tech...because their revenue stream comes from convincing us consumers that we need the latest incremental update.

  • I would like to buy it, but is going to be really big. Not sure...

  • Sounds like he's talking about an old Nexus phone

  • awesome

  • This is my next phone 📱

  • A month later and nother. I need a new phone and hate to get something a year old when i don't upgrade often

  • Hats off to Google just for not copying rival while trying to beat rival...

  • Since the beginning of pixels..im not impress with this phone...

  • I’m not a fanboy of any phone I think they’re all the same now. But I find it funny how other brands are calling theirs ‘Pro’ simultaneously marketed as an ‘iPhone killer’. If you have to copy, you’re not killing anything. This pixel 6 looks incredible, but iPhone will coast on familiarity and that’s what people want.

  • I'm a bit curious about the modded OS scene. If tensor becomes a thing, will that make it difficult for after market OS or easier? And if it does make it difficult will it force other brands to be more lenient with their boot loaders, i.e. if the Pixel does very well. Cause if it does well the A series could maybe benefit from this and steal the show
