    Post Why did you choose the Pixel 4 over the Pixel 4 XL?

    I think the Pixel 2 with the thin front facing speakers and size/weight was perfect. I wish they would model all future phones after it. The dimensions and front facing speakers were perfect.

    Post Why did you choose the Pixel 4 over the Pixel 4 XL?

    Hey what's up ? Sorry for some reason I didn't see this notification until now. Hopefully your wife likes the Pixel 4. I have had the phone now for about 8 months. The camera from Pixel 1,2,3,4 has been "slightly" better each time, but I think unless you really scrutinize the pictures, they are...

    Got the new Pixel 4 Pros: -Display and flashing is gone from the Pixel 3 -Buzzing earpiece is finally gone and sound is clear Cons: -No fingerprint reader. Face unlock is a hit or miss -under speakers, instead of front facing -phone is slightly larger and heavier than pixel 3...

    Post Why did you choose the Pixel 4 over the Pixel 4 XL?

    I got the pixel 4 b/c I actually dont like large phones. Everyone wants the biggest phone and I had the old schoo, Nexus 6 back in the day and it was too large and too heavy. In fact, I am not happy that the pixel 4 is heavier than the 3 and slightly larger, but it is the best "smaller" phone...

    Post [TOOL][HOW-TO] [Nexus 5X] Bootloop of Death (BLOD) Workaround [Flashable Zip]

    Thanks for the info. I did try butterfly awhile back. My phone stalled at the "Google" logo, it did not go beyond that. On your circumstance is this what occurred ? Also even though the big cores are disabled, is this a permanent fix or will it eventually become a permanent brick ? I'd have to...

    Post [TOOL][HOW-TO] [Nexus 5X] Bootloop of Death (BLOD) Workaround [Flashable Zip]

    Just got hit with the BLOD with my 5x. Had it since 2016 so almost 3 years. I am assuming the fix on the #1 post cuts a few cores ? The issue was towards the end the phone moved really slow as it was, so if I were to do this it may almost become too laggy. I also had no idea SuperSU was dead...

    Had no issue with sensors but am stock unrooted since the phone was purchased. From that link it appears it may be a rooting issue. I'm surprised that that it didn't go away though after wiping and reflashing stock images and relocking the bootloader

    I've had that too, but it's not too significant, and i wouldn't worry about it for the first few days while things optimize but i also noticed slight battery drain. Been trying to update the signals. The radio is definitely having issues for my carrier.

    Since Android 10 dropped, if anyone notices any bugs or issues I figured it would be good to make a thread about them. Been using Android 10 since it dropped, and one issue that I have noticed is my signal is more sloppy and inconsistent which may be a radio issue. I am using Sprint, but the...

    Post Pixel 3 screen flash

    Well, with Android 10 naturally I had to try this and see what happens. If I toggle AOD, then press the power button twice, the screen does not flash and works how it should. Only took 1 year and a new Android version, but it appears that it is gone although Google could always bring back the...

    Been using for 24 hrs. The gestures are a bit choppy. Also it will not work with 3rd party launchers for the time being which sucks. The gestures don't really feel that smooth. When I use the back gesture and side menu they can get mixed up at times.

    Post August update OTA available

    Lately I've done manual checking and Google seems to have been slower. It has taken a few days to push out. This most recent update is a bunch of nothing really. Few tweaks and enhancements and security patches. Nothing too wild.

    Post June Update is out

    Usually I get it within 24 hrs and I don't generally sideload bc it's a hassle and I don't mind waiting. I just wasn't doing jack today at work so I decided to do it during work time. That means I got paid to do nothing at work today and update my phone for those of you keeping track.

    Post June Update is out

    Google has gotten better getting the ota out, but it still takes about a day for me. Not doing anything at the moment so just downloaded it and sideloaded. Looks like there are a few bugs for ok goggle and something with netflix.

    Thread Pixel 3 screen failure

    This has been a disappointing experience. I just had my Pixel 3 display probably destroyed. It is flashing uncontrollably and I have a trip planned tomorrow. Also part of the top part has now darkened. I'm guessing it is a display failure. This is not my video but my phone is doing the exact...

    Post Speaker Soundquality vs Pixel 2

    It's like a fix a thing, break a thing. Pixel 3= Louder speakers overall. I can hear audio much better vs. Pixel 2. I'm not sure if others have this, but my earpiece buzzes a lot. It's to the point where I can sometimes barely hear the person. From what I have read, it is an issue with the...

    Post Pixel 3 screen flash

    No periodic flashes are software bugs not hardware. Other than doing the toggle mine would only flash once very seldom. I speculate that the issue is related to how the screen transitions when exposed to light. I have AOD off but auto brightness. My guess is there is something coded that caused...

    So i took the OTA update. It's just been a short period but i have not had any screen flashes since loading. When I toggle AOD, then hit the power button to turn it off then press it again back to turn on the screen I see some banding and not a screen flash. I don't use AOD, but at this point...

    The Pixel 4 was a halfway serious comment, but in reality there were some little issues with the Pixel 2, but overall it was ok. The Pixel 1 when I had it I didn't have any of the reported problems, plus the RAM management seemed to be better. I don't really like iPhone for the iOS. That is the...

    Post February update is out...

    Usually the Ota is available the same day. What I do now is if it is available when I'm at work I just Ota but if it is not triggering by the time I go home on the Monday then I just sideload it. Likewise I'm eager to get the updates afterall that's the point of owning a pixel right? Lol

    Post February update is out...

    OTA was a bit slower than normal. Did it old school and sideloaded. The phone "seems" slightly more smooth. There are still some stutters like in the play store, but seems like it may be marginally better than before.

    Post Pixel 3 screen flash

    After owning this device for 2 months, I have to say the Pixel 3 is a total waste of money. There is very little added benefit from the Pixel 2, all the gimmicks like nightsight can be had on the Pixel 2, plus the random flashes. If I could go back in time, I'd just have kept my Pixel 2.

    Post Scrolling smoothness

    I was wondering this, and at least I know it's not just me. Periodically I see stuttering although it's not the end of the world. I think just from off the top of my head, the OG Pixel worked the best. Never had app closing in the RAM and even though it was basic looking, it worked the best.

    Post Don't get most of notifications

    Do you have adaptive battery ? If so, my guess is this is an issue for it. The biggest notification delay I get is gmail where emails don't come in a timely manner. The adaptive battery likely puts to sleep apps not being used based on certain perimeters. Try turning it off and rebooting and...

    Post Pixel 3 worth the upgrade ?

    I also have the 5X no bootloop. The camera on the phone was good at the time, but the phone itself just is very underpowered and really was the old Google. I won't ever get rid of it until it stops working. More of sentimental value, plus still getting updates ! Nexus (all of them)= Pure...

    Post Pixel 3 worth the upgrade ?

    From a Samsung, just not having the bloatware is worth it. With any Samsung phone, you need to manually set everything to back up to Google by default instead of Samsung's own clouds. That alone makes it worth it for me not to have the manufacturer or even carrier's junk pre-installed that you...

    It's lessened a bit. Like you other than that sequence, it just happens randomly. I'll probably just ignore it unless it becomes a severe problem. I think in the last 2 weeks or so it has happened twice if that, and it was momentarily. Haven't had issues with the display or battery, etc so it's...
