  1. $999 for the 256GB Pixel 6 Pro isn't a 'small' price. Just because there are $1500 phones now doesn't normalize $1000 phones. And yeah, the 6 Pro should have a 256GB storage baseline, not 128.

  2. I'd be very interested how much better zoomed photos look on the Pro vs the regular. I'd assume they'll be doing some ML magic using the 50MP for optical zoom on the regular one and that's the most important difference for me.
    Kinda liking the non-pro more so far. 90Hz screen is enough for me, bigger battery should be offset by the bigger resolution and screen on the Pro, don't care about 5G at all, I actually like the matte design of the regular better and would also like to not have a bigger phone. From specs the regular is about the same size as what I currently have, so that's fine but I don't want anything bigger. But for size I'll just try them in a store.
