    Post Question Pixel 6 Pro 5005 mAh vs. iPhone 13 Pro Max 4352 mAh

    I almost went Iphone 13 pro max this gen. Almost. You know why I didn't? No fingerprint sensor. I'm not about to go back to entering my pin every time I want to open my device and masks make face recognition worthless.

    Post Question So... Who's as excited as I am for this ?

    I have a pro on order but I'm concerned and will be reading reviews carefully. I'm sure to get it the 28 to the 3rd. Google has a bad record hardware wise and s new chip is a big deal. There are likely to be some compromises and the videos we've been have been on the ****ty side. Lots to be...

    Post Question Are you keeping the Pixel Buds?

    I'll sell or gift mine. I had bought a set at release and was not happy with them. They let it far to much noise from the outside and Google's adaptive sound isn't enough. Ended up getting some Bose QC after trying many types. Wife has apple pros she likes. I really wanted to like the...

    Post Question Has anybody been able to preorder?

    They sent me an email yesterday to order and I went to the site. White was sold out so I ordered a black pro 128gb. Nov 4 delivery. Going to give the buds to my niece for Christmas If the reviews are mediocre I'll cancel. I'm a little dubious of the new chip until it is proven. I'm also...

    I'm still on July 2020, check for updates and nothing. I tried wiping cache and that didn't change anything. I'm on the unlocked variant. Samsung needs to fix this ****. I'm on cricket

    This is off my device. Delete any other versions and Remove data on your phone app and reboot your device. Install and I hope it works for you Make sure you're not using any third party phone apps or blockers.

    I wasn't able to get /system rw which limited options on enabling tether. Adjusting magisk for systemless hosts worked fine for me but I was never able to get tethering working on q. I went back to 9 until things smooth out a bit.

    Post Cellular strength and throughput

    One thing I've noticed with the device is the rf performance shows poorly in the signal department compared to other devices. However, a big difference is not just the numbers, say -117dBm vs -110 dBm on my s8+ but how the device performs at those numbers. As an example. My s8+barely gets...

    Post OP6T users, what adblock combination do you use? Rooted and non root

    I found adguard heavy on the battery, using 15% or so a charge. I moved to rooted and adaway, no regrets. Moved my adguard license to PC.

    Post Current ROOT Progress for G950U/G955U Snapdragon

    There are other devices (including S8 devices with root), if it is important people have choices. Most of those choices have drawbacks and when you can buy a top of the line device for $600 a few months after release it doesn't make a ton of sense to buy an inferior product for nearly the same...

    Post Current ROOT Progress for G950U/G955U Snapdragon

    It's been like this for years now so if root was important to you it was the wrong device to buy. The international version roots, USA version don't expect root. Just how it is. I won't scoff at root, enjoy having the options, but with all the non root ad blockers and non root package disable...

    Post 7.1.1

    The curved screen isn't my favorite but it is an obvious thing when buying so before purchasing I made sure I could deal with it. I'm getting used to it but it is a "feature" I probably wouldn't seek out again. Don't stress over a phone. Sell it and get something else if you aren't happy.

    Go ahead and grab the pixel. Google has been on a streak with the 6p / 5x / and pixel. So much so class action is getting looked at and people like me were able to return their 6p after 19 months for a full refund. They certainly made it right but I'd prefer a device that works and isn't in...

    Post update or not to update, that is the question

    If root is important, then skip the updates. Taking them creates risk of not being able to go back. That said, I wouldn't count on the US version getting rooted. If that is important get an international version or stick with the pixel. Thing is, root is getting less and less necessary...

    Refurb came in today and what a total POS. Shuts off randomly from 30 seconds to 20 minutes. You can see the battery % getting all crazy from 93% to 73% to 83% then boom off. Going to call google tomorrow to let them know. Stupid thing died half a dozen times between setup and the apps...

    Post Google Stepped up for me (battery shut off issue)

    Yup, just shuts down. If you try and reboot it is as if you are at 1%. Before shutting down it will show 15% or 30% left on the battery and then boom shutting down.

    Post Your next phone after the 6p?

    I just got an RMA so I'll likely keep it awhile. Depends on my luck of the draw with the replacement. If it sucks I'll grab the Oneplus 5 or note. I doubt we see removable batteries in any higher end device again. Companies claim design but reality is most of these phones aren't water...
