Google Pixel 6 (Pro): Problems with the display, camera & software – the solutions

Every new smartphone struggles with problems that are more or less bad. The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are no exception. There are solutions for some of the already known problems – partly from Google itself. However, one problem cannot yet be solved.

Google Pixel 6 (Pro): The Known Issues

Google started shipping the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro a few days ago. As with every new smartphone, problems surfaced shortly afterwards. There are known problems with the display, camera and software.

Flickering display on the Pixel 6 Pro

Some users have reported that the LTPO OLED display with variable refresh rate of the Pixel 6 Pro flickers. If you switch on the smartphone via the power button and hold it down a little longer than is necessary. Then stripes can appear on the display and it can start to flicker.

Google has already promised a software update for this problem (source: Golem). Since this is not a hardware problem, but a software problem, Google can fix the problem quickly and easily with the December update.

Spots on the camera

Both the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro show “spots on the camera” (source: SmartDroid). Specifically, however, it is about spots on the images, not directly on the camera. Especially in low-light images, users have discovered a bright spot that cannot be explained.

There is currently no solution to this problem. It’s unclear if it’s a software or hardware problem. Google is likely to take on the problem, because the camera is one of the most important selling points for the smartphone.

Day-One-Patch cannot be installed

Google has released a day-one patch for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, which should be installed immediately after setup in order to receive the final software. O2 customers cannot install this patch because it is not offered to them (source: Caschy).

The problem can be solved by inserting a different SIM card into the Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro that works in a different network – from Telekom or Vodafone.

in the Video let’s show you what makes the Pixel 6 so special:

Google Pixel 6 Pro is a best seller
