    bummer man.

    I still love my P2 XL. Been tempted multiple times to splash on the P3 promos (remeber that Fi Travel deal?) but awaiting the P4, will be a launch day purchase for me unless something goes wrong.

    Take it to Twitter. I'm guessing they'll be quite receptive once you start a thread about your experience with the 3 so far.

    Haven't had any issues with my P3. Sometimes when I double tap to wake the screen, it'll flash brightly for a brief moment, but that's it.

    Have a honeymoon coming up and have really resisted the strong urge to pick up the Pixel 3 XL for improved photos in paradise.

    Android Q beta came out yesterday. I took the plunge (available as an OTA w/ enrollment) and its very smooth for the first public beta. In years past, they called this an alpha release, and was not available as an OTA. I think payment apps are all certified, so in theory it could be used on your daily driver.

    A couple simple smart refinements, but not drastic.

    Wish google pay or other phones besides samsung had a similar to samsung pay.
     
  12. I got it and everything seems pretty minor other than the dark mode being a lot darker and applying to a few more aspects. Of course you had to have your phone set to dark mode before you upgraded as they removed the dark/light option from settings.

    Anybody using Android Q beta? Should I enroll?
     
  14. Yes and I don't know. I've had no problems. I've also not gained anything of value that I can tell.

    A couple smoothed corners, but no features, but per Dave Burke, more are coming in later releases.

    Copied from reddit. Looks a little weird on tmb imo. I also had to enable the 2nd dark mode that is in the flags for it to work

    With version 74 of Google Chrome you can enable dark theme by going to chrome://flags and enable the flag Android Chrome UI dark mode. Then relaunch Chrome, goto settings and turn on Dark mode.

    So is the autocorrect on this board working correctly now? It seems to be for me.

  27. It's taking seemingly a million fucking years for the new Android Beta to optimize the apps on my Pixel 3 before I can restart to finish installing the update. The progress bar literally hasn't moved in at least a half hour.

    Known issue....did you reboot eventually?
     
  29. No. It finally finished after like 2 hours. New gesture navigation is nice, though it has to be enabled in settings. Also the option to bring back the three button navigation or stick with the pill and the back button.

    The OnePlus 7 Pro is sexy as fuck. Not sure I can wait on the P4. OnePlus has the most minimal skin outside of pure Android...i'd never get a Samsung again, but thinking about the OnePlus
     
  33. It just kills me that it's 2019 and they refuse to add water resistance. Get with the damn times.

    Is there a decent comparison between it and a pixel somewhere?
