    Thread Live Captioning feature not working on stock Pixel 4a?

    I was wondering if anyone else could test if this is a problem for them. I'm hard-of-hearing and rely on this feature quite a bit, but obviously most people don't so it is hard to find information when there are issues with it. I would say sometime in the last couple weeks to 1 month, the Live...

    Thread USB-c to HDMI Out

    I was under the impression that any phone using Snapdragon that has a USB 3.1 port should be able to support HDMI/DisplayPort. That's why I bought the 4a. Imagine my chagrin when I found out it doesn't work. After doing some digging around... it seems that this might be disabled at the Kernel...

    With the pixel 4a finally arriving for some (like me), figured I'd make a quick guide Note that unlocking your bootloader breaks safetynet.

    Thread Would you buy the ZenFone 6 in 2020 over the upcoming Pixel 4a?

    I am waiting for the Pixel 4a but the ZenFone 6 has been tempting me with its battery, cpu and the camera setup. The only thing that the pixel will have over the 6 is the software updates. If you were in my situation, which phone would you pick and why?
