Guide to buying a refurbished Google Pixel 6
Refurbished Google Pixel phones have become a popular choice for many people; they are packed full of features and functionality. They are smart phones that run on the Android operating system and are simple and easy to use too.
Buying a brand new Google Pixel 6 can be incredibly expensive; however, just because you are trying to shop on a budget, that doesn't mean that you have to give up on the idea of having a phone that can deliver all the things that you need. You might just need to take a different approach.

Refurbished Google Pixel 6 Performance
You will want to make sure that the phone you have chosen works just as you want it to. After all, a phone that lags and leaves you behind is quickly going to become frustrating. With this in mind, let's take a closer look at the performance of the Google Pixel 6.
It takes around 2 hours for this particular phone to be fully charged, which, when compared to others out there, is longer than you may expect. However, Google has come back to say that this is because it has taken the approach of striking a balance between fast charging and doing what it can to preserve the battery life. They have created their adaptive charging, which slows down the phone's charging as it reaches total capacity, especially if you charge overnight and have an alarm set. According to Google, a refurbished Google Pixel 6 can fast charge up to 50 % in about 30 minutes and it can stay powered on for up to 48 hours with extreme Battery Saver.
Software-wise, you can expect to get regular software updates for your phone. This could be enhancements to security, new features that will boost the performance, and bug fixes and updates to the main operating system.
Refurbished Google Pixel 6 Camera Performance
When it comes to modern camera phones, one of the main things that people want to know is how good the camera is. We spend a lot of our time taking pictures, so if the camera isn't quite up to scratch, then it makes sense that we will not want to invest in that particular phone.
The good news is that a refurbished Google Pixel 6 camera can perform incredibly well. The rear camera comes with the wide-angle that we have often seen in other models. However, this is not bad, especially when you consider that the rear camera is also upgrading to a 50MP version, as well as an 8MP front facing camera to allow those perfect selfie’s to be snapped.
Along with the camera performance, the Google Pixel 6 is packed full of amazing tricks and treats for you to bring your images to life. One of the most popular additions (and even features in the advert for this phone) is the magic erasers, which can take out certain items or people in the image.
You also get the artistic blurs and a wide range of suggestions on improving that come up on the screen when you are trying to take your pictures.
Refurbished Google Pixel 6 Video Performance
Along with wanting high-quality images, you will want to make sure that your phone can deliver you great videos.
Thankfully the good news is that this phone can also deliver high-quality video. It comes with a Google Tensor chip which allows it to record 4K videos at a frame rate of as much as 60fps. The front camera can also record at 1080P at 30fps.
Not only this, but every single frame of the video is treated to HDR correction, which means that you will have the clearest capture of all those key moments.
