There have been many reactions from people on Reddit claiming many flaws in the Pixel 7 series. Due to this, they can’t make payments via Google Pay as the devices ask them to use other unlock options.

Google in context to this states that it’s still not safe to verify mobile payments through Face Unlock. As it also faces issues in low light and there are several chances that another person could also be able to unlock the device.

However, the iPhone uses an infrared camera for Face Id, which can detect the face even in low light.
