Build impressions out of the box - solid, premium, hinge seems just right and screen seems excellent.

How many notification icons can the outside screen show at once? Can you customize that screen in any way?

4 notifications at once, basically you get a orange dot next to the time when you get a notification. You then swipe right and the icons appear. You click on an icon and it gives you a small preview of what it is then you can click again and open the phone and it will go directly to that app. Example is an email where it shows the Gmail icon, with a click it will show who its from and the subject then with another click and open of the phone it goes straight to that email.

One small improvement here would be of the outside screen was always on which it is sadly not. There are no customisations unfortunately.

Yes you can! Answer via the little screen and you can take the call hands free.

Yes I wish we could have an always on option. Using it i realized even preview time is short it just suddenly goes off this mini display. Hopefully someone makes an app or samsung enables always on for the outside display.

Agreed, I have had all 4 generations of Pixel and will be hard not to have the always on display. Would have minimal batter impact being so small, too.

Any idea whether Light Manager, Holey or other similar app would be able to force an always-on indicator on the cover screen?

I've not had chance to do as full battery drain check yet but anecdotally it seems ok. Battery stats tell me that the other day i took it off charge at 1am and by 4pm it was down to 40% with about 3 hours screen on time.
