Google’s Pixel 6 smartphones were just released. Users have complained about a variety of faults that have plagued the Google Pixel 6 since its release. One of the most common complaints from consumers is the device’s slow and unreliable fingerprint scanner, which makes it tough to open.
On Twitter, a number of others have experienced the same thing, and Google has reacted with an explanation but no concrete remedy.
The problems are due to “improved security methods” used by the Pixel 6’s fingerprint scanner, according to Google. These security measures, according to the business, can cause a user’s fingerprint to “take longer to validate or require more direct contact with the sensor.”
The corporation also included a link to a Google support website that, while not offering a remedy, does state the obvious.
Some users believe the fingerprint reader’s slow performance is due to the Google Pixel 6’s adoption of an under-the-screen optical fingerprint scanner rather than a rapid ultrasonic one like the Samsung Galaxy S21.
On the other hand, several Reddit users claim that the optical fingerprint scanner on their OnePlus phones works perfectly, which could indicate that the Pixel 6 has a software issue.
The Google Pixel 6 was released in October and features a 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen with a dynamic refresh rate of up to 90Hz. The phone has a punch-hole cutout in the centre and is made of Gorilla Glass Victus with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
The Pixel 6 is powered by the Tensor chipset and has a 4,614mAh battery with wireless and 30W fast charging capabilities. In India, the smartphone is yet to be released.
