The Pixel 8 Pro is actually only available to journalists. But there are also the first few happy buyers.
Google actually wants to see the new Pixel series of Android smartphones in the hands of buyers from October 12, 2023. But here and there you can try your luck, as some customers are getting their new Pixel 8 (Pro) soon or have already been able to pick them up directly from a store.
Which is exciting, however, the final software and applications may still be missing. For example, the affected user, whose Reddit post is currently getting a lot of feedback, misses the new app for the built-in thermometer on the Pixel 8 Pro. Other updates, such as unlocking new functions for Google Photos, are coming soon.
First impressions are positive. The new fingerprint sensor is supposed to be a bit faster, but it doesn’t come close to ultrasound. Additionally, the Heat generation isn’t as powerful as its predecessor, the Pixel 7 Pro. The flat screen “feels much better” and the camera also makes a good impression.
