I do not understand the table about features. It states of the Pixel 6 Pro:

4k video in selfie mode (max 1080p)

So does it do 4K (generally around 3860 x 1440) or just 1080p (1920 x 1080)?

In the meantime, I’m just sitting back and waiting for Samsung to announce that it’s moving all of its products to Tizen.

Would that be the same Tizen that Samsung use to force feed advertising over it’s TV products?

Yes, The adverts can be turned off in a setting, assuming the option remains.

$1,000+ for any brand of mobile is too much, even if like me you stretch 4, 5 or more years out of a device. It also needs to fit in the average male pocket with room to spare. iPhone 8 is about as large as I would go.

I like big pockets and I cannot lie. In fact, where needed I get my pockets deepened by a local tailor in order to fit all of the junk I carry around - including a large phone.

Well spotted @postulative. The 1080p comment was an error that should now be fixed :+1:

In specs as I write:

  • Rear camera: Standard, ultrawide and telephoto lenses max 4x optical, 20x digital zoom. 50MP max resolution. Video max 4K/1080p 60FPS.
  • Selfie camera: Standard and ultrawide lenses. Video max 4K 30FPS/1080p 60FPS.

The selfie specs make sense, but also make the reader puzzle about the rear camera specs. What is the frame rate for 4K video using the rear camera - is it different to the frame rate for 1080p?

Actually, I was worried this may be a Google omission but the Google store tells me:

Rear camera
4K video recording at 30 FPS, 60 FPS

1080p video recording at 30 FPS, 60 FPS

Front camera
4K video recording at 30 FPS

1080p video recording at 30 FPS, 60 FPS

So both cameras can do video at 4K and at 1080p. The selfie camera can only do 4K at 30fps, but can do 1080p at either 30fps or 60fps. The rear camera can do 4K and 1080p at either 30fps or 60fps.

It’s all coming together. The specs per the review are correct but are still IMHO likely to cause confusion.
