Just wanted to start a discussion on people's thoughts on performance, battery life and if anyone is experiencing any issues on the final release of Android 10 for the pixel 2 xl.

So far so good for me.

I don't like the back gesture very much, but I think I'll get used to it. Everything is ok, up to now...

I was on Beta 5 and reverted back to stock by simply opting out of the beta. I feel like when I reverted, it didn't do it cleanly since I still see residual effects like the version number shows in my notification shade. Also, I no longer have access to the Netflix app, says it's incompatible with my device. Other than doing a factory reset, is there a way to "repair" the phone without losing data again?

You can get rid of the build number in the shade by turning off developer options. Not sure what's up with Netflix though mine works fine p2xl

OMG that worked! I tried other apks before deciding to factory reset and it still didn't work. You're a life saver. How'd you know the version would work?

It's nice, but unpolished...you can tell they rushed the build. Clean install mind you. Phone has rebooted twice, once installing an app. Another just because? Screen can still be interacted with even after swiping up and touching above it. Very noticeable in photos app once clicked on photo and slide up using gestures, it'll move. Battery was very good on beta 5 bit went down hill after that and persisted on the latest build, I very easily hit 9h sot on Pie, I struggle to hit 7 with doing less stuff even. Something that I reported on the betas and still persisted to stable. occasionally I will get an app that goes dark. When i switch it goes back to higher brightness and dark again (happened without auto brightness) a reboot fixed it. Has happened once on official and twice on betas.

There's a few others but I will update as I remember...

This is all bootloader locked. No mods, and no apps that mess with system.
