(Why) do you think the Google Pixel's popularity is plummeting?

Chatting with the AC forums.

Here at Android Central, we love the Google Pixel and consider it among the best Android phones available. From its unbloated, easy-to-use implementation of Android, to its continuous feature and security updates, to its amazing camera system, it's not hard to see why devices like the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a are among our top recommendations.

A recent report has come to light that suggests the Pixel phone's popularity is waning, at least, among people considering sticking with the brand come upgrade time. Our AC forum members quickly picked up on this topic, and a lively discussion ensued.

That doesn't reflect those coming to Google from other brands, which I did, because the Pixel 5 is perfect for me

Article talks about moving from phones. "46% of iPhone defectors would switch to a Samsung handset, while 35% would instead get a Google Pixel device." "A majority of Samsung defectors (53%) would get an iPhone, while 24% would instead get a Google Pixel device."

Apple Has 'Very Serious' DMA Issues, EU to Enforce Rules 'Soon'

Apple is facing a "number" of "very serious" issues with its Digital Markets Act compliance in Europe, EU competition commissioner Margrethe Vestager said in an interview with CNBC . The European Commission opened an investigation into Apple in March to determine if Apple's EU app marketplace changes were complying with DMA regulations. The DMA requires Apple to provide developers with an option to distribute apps outside of the App Store and without ‌App Store‌'s fees. Apple implemented support for app marketplaces with iOS 17.4, but it charges an 0.50 euro Core Technology Fee for each download after the initial 1 million annual installs. Vestager does not believe that Apple's changes meet the requirements of the DMA. "We have a number of Apple issues; I find them very serious," she said. "I was very surprised that we would have such suspicions of Apple being non-compliant." She went on to say that this implementation "

iOS 18 Introduces More Charging Limit Options on iPhone 15 Models: 85%, 90%, and 95%

All four iPhone 15 models feature a setting that prevents the devices from charging beyond 80% while toggled on, which can potentially improve an iPhone battery's lifespan by reducing the time that the battery is fully charged. And with iOS 18, Apple has taken this feature a step further by adding new 85%, 90%, and 95% charging limit options. Screenshot: Aaron Perris The feature can be found in the Settings app under Battery → Charging. The charging limit feature remains exclusive to the iPhone 15 lineup on the first iOS 18 beta, with the option not found on the iPhone 14 Pro or older. The first iOS 18 beta is now available for Apple Developer Program members, and a public beta will follow in July. Following beta testing, the update should be widely released to all users with an iPhone XS or newer in September.
