Google Pixel 7: The features we want to see

Without a doubt, the Pixel 6 family is the most premium line of phones that Google has ever created. With a unique design – a feat that’s getting harder and harder to accomplish these days – a lightning – fast proprietary processor, incredible cameras with meaningful new features, and a much-needed visual overhaul of Android, the Pixel 6 was almost everything we’ve ever wanted from a Google branded phone.

But it was not perfect, especially if you are one of the many customers who have been plagued by the constant barrage of insects that seem to show up every time. It’s without a doubt Pixel 6’s biggest flaw, but there are a few other things we can think of that would improve a Pixel 7 when it finally debuts. Here’s what we think the Pixel 7 will need to regain the top spot on the list of best Android phones.

Right now, the Pixel 6 family feels a bit like it had its foundation built on sand. The launch looked very strong, and former AC writer Ara Wagoner and I gave it high marks, calling them the best flagship phones of the year. But the foundation was washed away pretty quickly, and in December, the inadequacies of Google’s own Pixel software began to erode the goodwill given at launch.
