I'm getting the regular Pixel 6 for sure. The much better custom made processor and 12GB RAM and UFS 3.1 storage will make the phone super fluid smooth. Plus the size of the regular Pixel 6 is perfect to me, it's literally about the exact same size as the 4 XL identical width and height.
I like my 5a but it is slightly just a little bit laggy once in awhile, whereas my 4 XL is always smooth never lags.
The Pixel 6 Pro is just too big too much for me, I don't need all that.
I thought my 5A was kind of laggy now and then at first but it took a bit of new muscle memory on how and where exactly to interact with the screen properly. Got over that curve and it has been perfect.
I have heard lots of people complain that the 5a is "slow", but I'll be completely honest and say that I have never noticed any slowness.
Now, to be fair, I'm coming off of a Pixel 3, so maybe I'm just not used to newer faster flagship models, but the part I don't understand is in what way it is supposedly "slow". Some have suggested that "Oh, maybe you are just not a heavy phone user" but I don't even have a concept of what people doing with their phones that is tasking the system heavily...
I use mine for web browsing, email, messaging and the rare video stream. Apps open immediately and do what they are supposed to. Anything that requires more system performance gets done on the desktop. I don't even know what one could, or would want to do on a phone that is a heavier task.
