My Pixel got delayed in the post till tomorrow and my N4 was getting annoying on Nougat. Flashed marshmallow and it's so much better. Makes me miss the old lockscreen notifications I like the way they aren't going all the wah across the screen.

That's deceptive because the s8 uses the tall screen and it has so little bezel that physically they are actually very close despite the massive difference in screen size.

The V30 finally got a release date of Oct 20 in Canada and I think that's what I'm gonna go with. Just gotta hope there's a really good Black Friday offer on that as well.

That said, my phone is paid off after the next bill and I've never really dealt with retention for my mobile device. Is it worth calling my carrier(Fido) to see what they can do or am I just better off going wherever the best deal is?

Specs of razer phone is leaking.

16:9 1440p 835 single front and rear camera. 8 GB ram.

I'm curious about their customization for gaming. Samsung is still leagues beyond everyone else on that aspect.

Will there be a controller grip for this... Or maybe slide out gamepad like Xperia play!

Is this their official store or resaler making things up?

If it's actually qhd I might be in for $600ish.

I don't think it's official. They are usually right about models but if I remember they've gotten specs wrong before.

I can think of two possible reasons:
1. the screen unevenness is most noticeable at very low brightness
2. they want people to use night mode

Maybe?

iOS in my experience is much better than Android there - and a quick google would suggest this is fairly commonly understood and agreed.

I think it depends on what apps you have installed (which isn't really a defense for Google, since they shouldn't be allowing rogue apps to drain your battery on standby).

If I left my S8+ alone, it'd last for at least five days. With my normally light usage, my battery is in the 80-85% range at bedtime.

Yeah I needa get back into qhd land. Honestly the main reason I'm interested in getting a pixel lol.

S8+ at qhd mode looked great. So sharp. Ran like butt though. It defaults to 1080p for a reason.


Heck xz premium looked great at 4k*.

Two days ago Google announced that they're integrating video calling into Android directly.

We want to make it even easier to start a video call from your Android device, so we’re making video calling an integrated part of your phone. You can now start a video call directly from where you call or text message your friends, through your Phone, Contacts, and Android Messages apps. Later this year, we’ll also add the ability to upgrade an ongoing voice call to video with just a tap.

We’re starting to roll out integrated video calling to first-generation Pixel, Android One, and Nexus devices, and it will also be available on Pixel 2 phones. We’re working with our carrier and device partners to bring this experience to more Android devices over time.

Seems like kind of a big deal? Where does it leave Duo?

I like the name lol.


hope we start seeing some 18:9 android one devices next year!

I do kinda wonder, if xiaomi is doing one.... maybe huawei? The main reason they didn't make the pixel was the lack of branding.

Google seems fine with android one devices having company branding on the case.


something like the honor 7x with stock android for like $250ish?

Do you guys think this car mount would be OK for an S8+, or would any side mounting mount be not so great for an Edge screen?

The problem with a top/bottom mount is that it'll cover up the headphone jack, which I'd need for the aux cable.

Should be fine. Especially if you have a case. I have a similar style mount and works fine with the s8+.

It's always a PITA to get an OP in America.

Shit always is mad backordered. Then they cancel the old variant for the new T series a few months in. Then you have to wait for the T to go up and hope you get in line soonish.

I bought a cheapo $5 side-gripping car mount from TJ Maxx and it has worked great so far.

It doesn't touch the screen of my S7, and the S8 I think has less of a severe curve to the screen, so it should be even safer even without a case.

Pixel 2 XL is great in person. Super solid build, great screen, loud speakers, buttery smooth performance. As for the screen: it wasn't too bright at the lowest setting, no banding issues, and the screen did seem a little "sunken in". I only noticed it because it's been mentioned though, it's not a bother.

Normal Pixel 2: bezels are big, but it's still one sharp looking phone in person. I'd buy it if I wanted a tiny phone.

It's sad that the pixel 2 is considered tiny. On that note, my only feedback on trying a 2 XL is that it's absolutely fucking MASSIVE. Like it's a big phone. The rest of it is normal/what you'd expect. Struck me as the phone google should have released last year.

Impressions on reddit is that the normal one feels really nice in the hand.

The phone not being wedge shaped anymore helps with balance.

This!

Unlike Google and other messaging shit that all seemed to be different this seems to be actually building on their current system. They just seem to be basically taking Duo and embedding it into Android itself.

Of the two Alo and Duo I'd have to say Duo is the much better product. The video connection and quality is actually rather legit. It's just hard to get use out of when it's not built in.
