Why I might skip the Pixel 6 — and keep my Pixel 5 instead

I can’t remember being so excited about a smartphone release. You see, I’m not an iPhone owner, so those annual September events never get my heart pumping like they do for others. Not that I have any issue with Apple; the company makes great products — I’m just not interested in owning them. So each year I rely on a handful of companies to launch Android phones that can compete against those ever-reliable fruit-flavored releases. And most of the time, they fall short. 

Don’t get me wrong, there are some good options out there (see the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, OnePlus 9 Pro and Pixel 5a), but I’ve had a falling out with Samsung and its 50 shades of Android skins, and too many of my past OnePlus phones suffered hardware issues. So last year I switched from a OnePlus 8 to the Google Pixel 5. That’s not a move most tech journalists would have recommended. The Pixel 5 was a flawed phone at launch. Not only was it not a “true flagship” despite its name, but the phone was a poor value when compared to the cheaper models Google released, like the Pixel 4a 5G
