Pixel 6 and 6 Pro: Connectivity issues continue even after the March patches

The latest Feature Drop in March introduced a series of bugfixes dedicated to the new Pixel 6 (our review here) and 6 Pro, but it seems that too the latest corrections have not solved some of the now physiological problems of the two smartphones. In particular, according to the latest testimonials, the update dedicated to solving the connectivity problems of the Pixel 6 did not bring the desired results and therefore the two smartphones continue to offer an unsatisfactory experience with regards to data connectivity and Wi-Fi.


A few days after the release of the update, reports continue to arrive from users around the world about the problems that were present even previously. For example, some complain the sudden loss of connection with the cellular network (in this case the user uses Verizon) which can last several hours and leads to loss of calls and SMSwhile others confirm connectivity problems even with the Wi-Fi network, in addition to having detected a smartphone heating more evident than in the past.

Other testimonies seem to confirm that the problem concerns in particular the telephone capabilities of smartphones, since it is possible to continue browsing under the cellular data network even when these disconnections occur, but obviously you become unreachable in the case of a traditional call and are not received. SMS.


The Reddit community has taken steps to seek solutions to the problem, but it seems that none of these are particularly effective or decisive for everyone. Among the most popular tips is to disable 5G connectivitywhile others seek assistance directly to try and get a newer replacement Pixel 6. Indeed, it seems that the most affected models are those produced in 2021 (in particular in September), identified by a serial number starting with 19 (1 indicates 2021, 9 the month), while those produced in 2022 (the serial number starts with 2) seem to work better.

In any case, it seems that there are no definitive and effective solutions for everyone in the same way, so it is likely that we will have to wait for a new update from Google to resolve the matter.
