Everyone knows that when you buy technology that turns out to be insanely frustrating the best call of action is to tell everyone else what you’re going through, right? That’s how, by analyzing thousands of tweets, the guys over at Electronics Hub were able to develop a complaint detection tool, monitoring tweets mentioning popular tech products and giving each gadget a score based on the percentage of tweets that feature a complaint.
They’ve looked at everything from laptops to home smart hubs with smartphones featuring heavily and indeed the Google Pixel 6 being crowned the most complained about mobile phone in the world as a result.

A massive 27.2% of tweets about the Google Pixel 6 were found to contain consumer complaints. As well as the updates issue, users are annoyed about charging – Electronics Hub reports several Reddit users as complaining that that the flagship won’t work with older or third-party chargers. While this is in some ways a smart move by Google, we can definitely understand how it is grating on users.

It’s not just Google phone users who are spitting feathers over on twitter about their devises – while the Google Pixel 6 was most complained about overall, actually eight of the top 10 most frustrating phones were iPhones.
