    Post assembly problem: gap between screen and case

    I see people talking about waiting it out. Sooo many times these issues don't get complete satisfactory resolutions. ALWAYS return it within the return window. You can always buy it again later. just my 2 cents.

    Post assembly problem: gap between screen and case

    My take is that they are both right, and that it has both. The callout on 13 is only talking about water, so they state IPX8. If they were only talking about dust in the callout, they could state IP6X.

    Post assembly problem: gap between screen and case

    I went to the pixel 5 page on the google store website. Changed from Overview to Tech Specs and expanded the section Materials. There is this statement: IP68 water and dust resistance

    Post Best Clear Cases?

    Saw an Amazon review that pointed out there is a cutout or indentation along the top edge of the screen opening for the speaker (that doesn't exist on the phone)

    If you have a few extra bucks, the Oculus Go is very nice. Very similar experience to Samsung, but you don't have to worry about phones.

    I can't stand earphones that completely plug your ears. So... I use airpods with my android phone. Shhh. Don't tell anyone.

    Post Bellroy Leather or Google Fabric case?

    I have both, and like both. I kinda like the fabric one better because it's different. Bellroy might be better protection as it has a slight front lip that is non-existent on the fabric.

    Post Shipping Thread

    My order status still says processing, but you reminded me to look at my fedex app to see if anything is in there. I ordered 1 phone and no accessories. Fedex shows 3 packages/tracking numbers coming from "global courier express inc" 2 of them say delivery for 5/24 and one says 5/25. Very strange.

    Post Google pixel 2 XL shipping

    I hope you're right. Last year I ordered the Pixel and chose 1 day and got it on 10/20 - release day. But the circumstances could have been different, I don't remember.

    Post Google pixel 2 XL shipping

    I made the same mistake as before and chose 1 day shipping. Before checkout the shipping date was 10/17, but after I chose 1-day the date changed to 10/18. Their goal is for everyone (they have stock for) to get them on the release date of 10/19 regardless of shipping method.

    Kinda sucks. If I didn't like the 2XL the V30 was my second choice. Fingers crossed.

    Post What I hate about the Pixel 2 XL

    My dislike is much more trivial. I hate the uneven top and bottom bezels. I guess I'm a sucker for symmetry. Still gonna be the best phone on the market along with the V30.

    Post Anyone else returning it or thinking about it?

    The phone is fine - I knew what I was getting before i purchased it. I prefer the reader on the back. I have it set to not lock when is at home or in the car so i don't have to pick it up, just press the side button.

    Post Silver or Black

    Not a fan of the dark grey. One thing I've always liked about the iphone is how black the front looks when the screen is off. In most lighting you can't see where the screen ends and the bezel begins.

    I charged mine overnight and it was not warm/hot. I didn't use the included charger. In my bedroom I have an old charger that is not a quick charger, so maybe that was the difference.

    Post Daydream screen turns off

    I don't see daydream as an app that can have battery optimization turned off. I installed clock plus and set that as my daydream. That is listed as an app and I turned optimization off for that, but still the same problem.

    Thread Daydream screen turns off

    I use the daydream feature as a bedside clock. I plug it in, daydream clock comes on and all is good. When I wake up in the middle of the night the screen is off. Anyone know what is happening? Is this Doze? Any idea how to override?

    If only T-mobile was an option. The price is right but coverage for my area, not so much. When I'm in my house, most incoming calls go straight to voicemail. I know there are wifi ways around that, but I'd rather be able to make calls in a power outage.
