    I don't know what it is about this phone but I don't think I've ever seen a phone on here with more contrasting views on various listings. I'm wondering if it's a quality control issue as to why some people have so many complaints.
    For my part, I've been using mine for 6-9 months and I like it a lot. I particularly like the more compact size and weight.
    Mine only overheated once when I left on the car seat in direct sunlight on a boiling hot day - most/all phones would have overheated then I would guess. A few other times mine has got warm but not what I would call 'overheated'.
    Camera is very good for the price.
    I registered my fingerprints twice - once in the daylight and once in the dark - and mine works fine 95% of the time (and that's an underestimate if anything).
    Battery life is also good but does drain noticeably quicker when not on WiFi more than other phones I've had. But, I wouldn't call it 'bad'.
    Charging is slow by modern standards but I knew the charging speed when I bought it so it wasn't a surprise.
    Performance is plenty quick enough for everyday tasks and more.
    When you can get used/refurbished one's for around £200 and under I think it's a good buy, particularly since it will be supported with security patches to at least July 2027. I got mine for £155 via a private sale on ebay and it's worth every penny of that in my view.
    Heat from me 🔥 (edited)

    Totally agree with you I've had mine several months and no problems at all. I have small hands for a man so I'm OK with the size. As you say with so many contrasting views, it's got to be QC issues.

    I have just ordered Honor 70 which hopefully will have replace my 6a. Got it brand new recently and constantly have to top up during the day which would not be an issue if not the fact that charging is veeery slow on 6a. Comparing to my previous phone Redmi note 10 pro, pixel has better camera, better quality screen (sharper) and 5G and I think those are all the noticeable differences between this and few years old note 10 pro. If you only use the phone occasionally throughout the day then go for it guys but if you spend substantial amount of time on the phone you better get yourself a juicy power bank to go with it.

    Honor 70 came in yesterday and I have to say difference is immense. Paid £249.99 for honor and after using it for couple of days and I can't see a single benefit of 6a over honor 70. Camera is not much worse in Honor 70 too so if anyone is contemplating. That would be alternative to 6a I can strongly recommend.

    50969241-FfZIt.jpgThese are some recent listings for new 6a, I think it's worth paying a bit extra for a new one.

    Where is that?
  4. justabout72's avatar
    My battery drain on the 6a was horrendous. But since a couple of updates it seems to have settled down. Nice and nippy little phones but I just can't get on with the dinky size compared to my x4 pro.

    On the plus side I did only pay £56 for it in the great O2 glitch a few months back. (edited)

    Same. I moaned about it to start with, but it did get better.
  5. spannerzone's avatar
    Fairy pleased with my 6a, my dislike, compared to the 4a it replaced are:
    Frustrating fingerprint reader, it's bad much of the time,
    Gets hot on 5g, especially if traveling in train and it flips between 3/4/5G.
    My glass screen protector shifts up and across over a few weeks, heat from phone seems to radiate out through screen and makes screen protector shift. Tried many protector, all do it.
    Few quirks like calendar opens on its own when waking phone.
  6. Dustlandfairytale's avatar
    Useless finger print reader. Goes dim randomly. Because of the slow charging it can't be used as a sat nav even on charge in the car. Had one 1% when I got home! I won't be keeping mine. Screen turns it's self on all the time and so it's constant hot.
    eldaniel's avatar
    Agreed. Got rid of mine and bought Honor 70 and it was great decision.

    I've had mine for a week. Nothing but trouble: overheating, disconnecting from Wifi million times a day, NFC chip not working, terrible/slow finger scanner. Now back to Argos, bye bye Pixel. Comming from Huawei Mate 10 pro which have been my beloved companion over 6 years, but now constantly restarting

    You bought yours brand new?
  8. davidturner99's avatar
    My wife got one of these a while back as a replacement for a Poco X3. She loves the interface but cannot cope with the poor battery life and is going to swap it for something else. She can't even get a day of moderate use out of it The Poco she could stretch to two days.

    Silly question here.

    On refurbs like this.......will they have changed it for a new battery or are you buying a cleaned-up phone with a used battery??
    DopeyDunker's avatar
    99.9% of the time a 'refurb' means it's seen it's face wiped with a cloth at best.

    Wasn't it £200 a year ago, brand new, in some offer? (edited)
    hecatae's avatar
    yes, think it was Vodafone, sadly we still do not have time machines.

    That's a lot of good phone for £200. Love my 6a. Always tempted by the 7 when it comes up at a stupid price but then wonder what's the point
    bargainhunter2409's avatar
    7a is newer I imagine it will receive updates for longer and maybe newer parts etc but I may be wrong I wouldn't upgrade if I was you either not enough advancement between this and the 7a this should be good a couple more years at least lol
  14. Kankan101's avatar
    Paid 200 new for it and regret it fully, terrible phone really really avoid.
  15. leigh_Beef's avatar
    Great camera but Google have done a hypejob on advertising it. I've got 6a and 7 and honestly they are crap . Can't wait to go back to my old mate 20 pro. Don't get sucked in like me.
    deleted1949126's avatar
    What is better about mate 20 Pro?
  16. Skol's avatar
    My daughter has a 6A, she is 10 but is a heavy user at times with YouTube and Roblox etc.

    Battery lasts her fairly well but she does carry a 10000mAh battery pack for when we go out.

    Fairly snappy phone IMO and worth £200 which is what i paid on Currys deal last year with trade in of a scrap Huawei.

    I use a Pixel5 and it seems to me at least as good as that and doubt the 7A offers much more as we will get at least Android 14. (edited)
    deleted1949126's avatar
    Is she addicted, do you worry about that or no?
  17. gadger's avatar
    I've got the pixel 7 pro, it is a good phone and I really like it but I've never had a phone to compare it to like the Huawei p40 pro, an absolutely amazing phone, I'm really hopeful they can produce one day with GMS on it from new as in my humble opinion, Huawei still make the best phones around.

    So true shame Trump destroyed Huawei

    Good find

    Fine thanks, you? (edited)

    Cheers man, how's it going?
  19. juan_ignacio's avatar
    Is much much difference between this model and the 7a, in real user experience?
    morgie's avatar
    In my mind the upgrades in the 7a are worth the extra ~£100 to £120 you can typically pay for a Grade A refurb 7a. E.g. newer processor, face unlock, upgraded camera, higher refresh rate of the screen, longer software update life etc. (edited)
  20. eldaniel's avatar
    Not really convinced that this is such good deal. I have sold mine in absolutely excellent condition and 97% battery for £180 on eBay so definitely you can save yourself some money buy shopping there for it
