March 2023 already. There’s always more than words can say; failing to keep up with words is increasingly okay.

From wonderful to wonder at how some people choose to view their world; I’m so grateful for my view and what I choose and the gift of that distinction; the distinctive gift of a life my own

Pixel 6 Pro thoughts

slated in consumed at 1:16 am

Some offhanded Google Pixel 6 Pro thoughts, before I have it in hand:

Finally ! respectable storage amount available. Seems a bit small for today’s day and age, yet four times better than last year, which was definitely at least 3 years out of date.

I’ve been excited about the camera, however not excited to hear that a lot of its abilities are dependent on specific shooting modes: you have to have that specific mode running while taking the picture. Grr. Other phones have excellent macro lenses these days; no such thing from Pixel. Grr. Sounds like the impressive low-light abilities still depend on long hold-steady-for-the-open-shutter times. Grr.

It will be interesting to adjust back to a big phone, after the small Pixel 5; I was a big-phone person always before — I like having lots of screen real estate. I also like being able to put my phone in my pocket. ::Sad about losing the latter.

Comparing Spigen cases

slated in consumed at 9:04 pm

I’m deciding on a case for the Pixel 6 Pro, very probably a Spigen. In my experience, Spigen cases are very reliably form-fitting, thin, while providing fair protection given their slim size. I don’t need heavy/rugged protection, I prefer thin and lightweight, although I appreciate a bit of protection so that my phone can survive the occasional fall without incident.

Spigen Rugged Armor for Pixel 6 Pro: full coverage, thin, multiple textures, physically flexible material, feels protective, feels good and gripped well in hand
Spigen Liquid Air for Pixel 6 Pro: full coverage, thinnest, textured, physically flexible material
Spigen Ultra Hybrid for Pixel 6 Pro: full coverage, good firmness, thin while providing protection
Spigen Thin Fit for Pixel 5: full coverage, good firmness, thin while providing protection
Spigen Liquid Crystal for Pixel 3XL: full coverage, good firmness, good look though slightly thicker/plastic feel
Spigen Rugged Armor for Pixel 2XL: full coverage, good feel, thin while providing protection
Spigen Thin Fit for Pixel 2XL: limited coverage: many open gaps around buttons, rubbish protection, prone to breakage
