When the Pixel 6 was released, we indicated in our test that the autonomy of the smartphone was slightly above average, without standing out from the crowd. Unfortunately for the device, as is often the case, battery life has degraded over updates, and it appears that the latter had a significant impact on autonomy.

It has now been several days since Google rolled out Android 13 to its Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. The update brought many new things to smartphones, but some users have commented on social networks and on Google forums that their experience was far from perfect, especially when it came to battery management.
