Will it surely launch in India? And, any news whether they will use new camera hardware?
Those using 6a, how's the battery? Screen on time wisei mean
Yeah that's what i meant only a new camera sensor. It's long due. And agree on 90 Hz as well. Disconcerting to hear about slow fp scanner though. Not that I use them anyways but still...They launched the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro in India so I don't see a reason why the wouldn't launch the Pixel 7a. Can't say much about the hardware to be honest. Hopefully it's a 90Hz panel and the camera sensor gets an update. And please for the love of god I hope that the fingerprint sensor will be improved.
As for the battery life for my Pixel 6a, I can squeeze out about 6-7 hours of screen on time given my usage. This is when I'm on Wi-Fi most of the time. It may vary if you're connected to a 4G/5G network.
Here is what my battery usage looks like by the end of the day. I don't know how accurate these graphs and usage times are. But I'm happy with what my phone offers.6 to 7 hours is decent i suppose. But should be more really. I can squeeze 5 to 6 hours from my Pixel 2 xl still.
A small update: This battery life test was done while the phone was connected to Wi-Fi 95% of the time. Now I've moved away from the city and to a remote place where Wi-Fi isn't available and I have to rely on mobile data 24x7. I get about 2 bars of signal (3 at best) and the speeds aren't that great. Enough to load a YouTube video in 360/480p and to surf this forum.Here is what my battery usage looks like by the end of the day. I don't know how accurate these graphs and usage times are. But I'm happy with what my phone offers.
I had around 30% charge left at 17:30 and the Digital Wellbeing dashboard read 6 hrs 32 mins but when I came back from the gym (phone was idle with cellular network ON) the dashboard showed only 6 hrs. And in one of the bars of battery usage graph, the readings are just empty.
So I can't say that these results are 100% accurate but what I can say is that the phones lasts me an entire day given my usage. I'm writing this with my battery on 6%.
Also getting 5-6 hours of usage on Pixel 2XL given it's age is really good.
What are your ambient temperatures? It's summer time so phones will be running mild warm to hot depending on what you are doing. As I type, I can already feel my phone is a bit on the warmer side for it's already 45C here.Never seen my phone run so hot. This is under idle condition/minimal load. I'm not gaming, not watching YouTube or browsing the web.
Debloat it , you can remove many Google default installed apps .Still use a 4XL, the phone is just awesome for its display, Cameras and all..
The only problem is battery life... is there any way i can imporove it?
