This Pixel 6 model is the popular buy amongst our readers

The Pixel 6 Pro is it.

What you need to know

  • Most of our readers are interested in buying the Google Pixel 6 Pro.
  • A third of our poll responses voted for the standard Pixel 6 as the phone they want.
  • Some readers are undecided, while a smaller percent are not interested.

The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are up for preorder, and they seem to be selling like hotcakes with Google already sold out of many models and putting buyers on waitlists. However, there are still plenty of places where you can purchase one of the new smartphones, and we asked whether or not our readers were interested in buying either model.

While both phones share much of the same internals, the Pixel 6 Pro does have a higher refresh rate display, additional telephoto lens, and more RAM. That's why it may come as no surprise that the Pixel 6 Pro was the most popular device in our latest poll, with more than 54% saying they'll buy it. The standard Pixel 6 came in with less than 30% of votes, with a smaller percentage still unsure and an even smaller group passing on the new Pixels completely.

Many of our Facebook responses expressed interest in both the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, but many also expressed wanting to wait until reviews came out to make the final decision. But that wasn't the only reason our readers wanted to wait:

One Twitter response explains that even though the Pixel 6 Pro is still cheaper than many other top-end flagships, it's still too pricey.

One commenter, Starfleet Captain, is tempted but wants to hold off for now. "The Pixel 6 Pro is the first Pixel phone I have actually wanted and considered purchasing," they said. "But I think I'll pass... for now. I want to see what Samsung delivers in February before I pull the trigger on a new phone."

Now that Google is putting up a real fight against some of the best Android phones, it'll be curious to see how the phones measure up to 2022 flagship devices, including the upcoming Galaxy S22.

Spotify Q1 beats on sales of $2B with monthly active users up 31% to 286M

The coronavirus may be decimating some corners of the economy, but the impact on the digital music, as evidenced by the world’s biggest music streaming company, appears to be minimal. Today Spotify reported its earnings for Q1 with revenues of €1.848 billion ($2 billion at today’s rates) and an inching into a positive net income of $1 million. Monthly active users (not total subscribers) now stand at 286 million, with paid (premium) users at 130 million and ad-supported monthly active users at 163 million. Ad-supported users are growing at a slightly higher rate at the moment, at 32% versus 31%, Spotify said. Spotify beat  analysts’ forecasts on both sales — they had on average been expecting revenues of $1.86 billion — and EPS, which had been forecast to be -$0.49 but came in at -$0.20 on a diluted basis and $0.00 undiluted. The numbers underscore the positive signals we’ve had from the wider industry. More generally, we have seen a huge boost in streaming media services — includ

Google's new Guest Mode is like incognito mode for Google Assistant

Your interactions with Google Assistant will not be saved when Guest Mode is turned on. What you need to know Google Assistant is getting a new Guest Mode for privacy-conscious users. When it's turned on, the virtual assistant will not save any of its interactions with you. Turning it on and off is as simple as a single voice command. Google this week announced a new Guest Mode for its virtual assistant that's designed with privacy-conscious folks in mind. A simple "Hey Google, turn on Guest Mode" will ensure that none of your interactions with Google Assistant are collected by the company and nor will they be used to 'personalize your experience' — often an indirect way of referring to targeted ads. When it's on, the Assistant will play a special chime to let you know. Smart displays with Assistant will also show a guest icon on the screen. And you can always check for yourself by saying, "Hey Google, is Guest Mode on?" Even with G
