List of Pixel 7 issues:
Camera glass breaking / shattering:
Many user have experienced the camera back spontaneously breaking or shuttering on their Google Pixel 7 (seems to affect only the 7, not the 7 Pro). This is a really concerning problem that unfortunately can’t be fixed by software updates. We are still waiting on Google to gather more informations, but so far they failed to acknowledge the defect and tell users to pay for the repair (about $200).
Pretty sure the cases will grow in the coming weeks and months and hopefully Google will replace every defective units that have a shattered camera glass for free.

Many users reported excessive battery drains. The Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, although having a bigger battery than previous gen, still struggle (in many cases) to last more than a day.
Sluggish performance, sensor requirement multiple attempts when it’s not simply not working. Google has still a lot of improvements to make regarding hardware
Has Google fixed the Pixel 7 issues?
Some small issues have been resolved via software updates, thankfully.
Is there a class action for the Pixel 7 ?
No class action yet for the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. The number of problem so far is still relatively small, so unless a huge issue arise in the next months, there won’t probably is any class action.
