Unfortunately, the Pixel 6a is already having a few problems, and users are not happy. Google seems to have improved a little bit the quality compared to the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, but that’s really a bummer to see all these issues on recent phones.

Fingerprint sensor: 

The in-display fingerprint sensor on the Pixel 6a has been a major source of complaints for many users. Some people have reported that the sensor is slow or inaccurate, while others have said that it simply doesn’t work at all.

Connectivity issues: 

Some Pixel 6a users have reported problems with cellular connectivity, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. These issues can manifest in a variety of ways, such as dropped calls, slow data speeds, and difficulty connecting to Wi-Fi networks.

Battery life: 

The Pixel 6a has a decent battery life, but some users have reported that it doesn’t last as long as they would like. This is especially true for users who use their phones heavily for gaming or streaming video.

Software bugs: 

The Pixel 6a has been plagued by software bugs since its release. These bugs have caused a variety of problems, such as freezing, crashing, and performance issues.

Has Google fixed the Pixel 6a issues?

Google has released a number of updates for the Pixel 6a in an attempt to fix these issues. However, some problems persist. If you are experiencing any of these issues, you can try the following troubleshooting steps:

  • Restart your phone: This may fix some minor software issues.

Is there a class action for the Pixel 6a ?

No class action yet for the Pixel 6a. But Google seems to have a lot of issues since the Pixel 6 and 6pro release, so there will be potentially a lot of new class actions for those new terminals (Pixel6 and 6pro, and Pixel 6a).
