    Post How do you get notifications?

    I had an OG Pixel XL where to notification shows up for a bit with the first sentence of the notification. It does on a black screen too so great for battery, basically an Always on display that is activated by notifications. So easy to glance at my phone when getting a notification and decide...

    Thread Uninstall bloatware

    Anyone have any tips in disabling bloatware, like the microsoft apps? Think it would be good to have a thread on it. I've already uninstalled facebook by running the follow commands in adb: adb shell pm uninstall --user 0 com.facebook.services pm uninstall --user 0 com.facebook.katana pm...

    Post S10 vs Your previous phone

    Came from an OG pixel XL. The screen on this thing is crazy good. The one downside I noticed was when doing an update and not having seemless updates. On my Pixel XL you just restart your phone and the update is done. No step for optimising apps. With Samsung it felt like going backwards because...

    No. I'm not wasting money, this phone works perfectly well, it can still run everything, and it will continue to get updates. It's got everything. The technology is phones is not going to improve that much, it's slowing down. What are they going to give us? A better camera, more RAM, latest...

    Same issue for me. Turned off wifi and Bluetooth scanning, set device location to device only and opened the app, set the location. Open PGo and it tells me GPS not found. I also tried loading PGo into the game and then turning on this app, which just creates the same issue. The location...

    How is this app compared to the others out there? I'm currently using "App Lock" but everytime I get a notification from an app I've locked I have unlock it again. Very annoying when I'm in the middle of a game or fullscreen app because it closes the app. Which is really crap. I also don't need...

    Post Dual sim Discussion

    I sent a message to iFixit in the hope they'll explore it, since they have the right tools, but otherwise maybe some sites like androidpolice would be willing to have a go? Only so much they can do before software tweaks may be needed but at least we can see some progress.

    Updates to manual as in from the play store? I already do that for all my apps. I'm using greenify now and will just hibernate the app from time to time. Don't have a reason to root so I won't be able to use greenify to it's best but so far it's better at least.

    Has anyone done a teardown of the phone to see what that extra slot does in the sim tray? If the metal was removed, or a new simtray with both slots open were used, would it suddenly just work? Would both sims get recognized, or will it do nothing because there are no connectors there? Would...

    I ordered two 6Ps, one Frost from the Google store and one Aluminium from CPW. CPW told me Oct 26 when I ordered in store, haven't heard of delays until coming to this thread. Google Store one is expected in 2 weeks but hopefully I can play with the CPW one for a bit first next week.

    Post The 6P will have more resolution than my monitor at home.

    Yes and that's fine. If they had a 2880 resolution all the time everything would be tiny, instead they made all the icons, texts and all that twice the size, taking up double the pixels, so they are sharper in quality. It's like this phone in fact. Having two 5inch phones, one with a 1080p...

    I hope to god it has dual sim support, that would be amazing. I would no longer have to carry two phones around. Even if there's space for it, like you guys are saying above, the community can work on getting it enabled for everyone.

    Love my Macbook Pro retina display, I think it's 2880x1800. After you use it, you can't just go back to normal HD. It's fantastic, looking forward to this phone's screen as well.

    Carphone Warehouse have told me to come to their store on the 26th to pick it up. Ordered a Frost 64GB from the Google store as well and they say it's coming Nov 4-5. We shall see. Will be quite impressed if Carphone Warehouse can actually get me one on the 26th.

    Post With no SD Card, how do we flash ROMs and stuff like that?!

    Just set up a Tasker profile to automatically backup your SDCARD partition to google drive once a week. Sorted. Google with Lollipop does let you restore your device but app data doesn't get restored. Widgets, apps and contacts get restored.
