Pixel 6 Pro is the best smartphone Google has ever made. But, it is distressful for some users as bugs and issues on the Pixel 6 duo are not coming to an end. A couple of bugs affecting the Pixel 6 were fixed with the June 2022 security update, but unfortunately, new bugs have surfaced, as reported by users on the Google support page and Reddit.
We have seen a bunch of issues on the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro such as a slow fingerprint reader, blurred selfie camera, random screen wakeup issue, Magic Eraser not working, app crashing, and screen flickering. While Google has fixed some of these issues with the monthly security update, many of them are still a headache for Pixel 6 owners. Users are already struggling with ongoing issues and a new bug has surfaced making the device even more difficult to use. Multiple users have reported that they are facing problems with the mobile network. While for some Pixel 6 and 6 Pro owners the mobile network keeps disconnecting, many are facing network dropping problem.
As reported by multiple users, the Pixel 6 is not recognizing the SIM. The device shows “No SIM card – No service” in the top status bar. Some users have even complained that the Wi-Fi automatically gets disconnected. On some devices, the Wi-Fi toggle turns off, and the mobile data turn on automatically.
Here’s what users are saying:
“I’m using the unlocked pro on Verizon and noticed a lot of “lost internet connection” issues today while driving around town in areas with strong coverage. Has anyone else noticed this? The update isn’t available for my device, so hopefully that’ll help, but what I noticed today was def concerning.” – source
“I’m currently experiencing the exact same issue as you. The wifi toggle turns itself off after having my phone’s screen off for a few minutes.” – source
Sadly, despite dozens of reports on popular forums and Google’s support page, Google has not yet acknowledged any of the issues mentioned above. However, we can hope that it will soon be acknowledged by Google and a fix for that should be on the way. All the aforementioned issues are related to software that could be fixed through these easy-to-apply workarounds.
