    Folders? You mean on your homescreen? Why not just use a differernt launcher like Nova?

    The speakerphone mic on my pixel doesn't always work so that kinda pisses me off.

    You can't put apps in folders on your homescreen?

    The One Plus 7 Pro is the best phone on the market. If the Pixel 4 doesn't get a 90 hz refresh rate and some larger ram capabilities, it will remain so.

    It's bullshit that something so simple doesn't work on a flagship phone. I've also had the weird screen flashes, those don't impact anything performance wise that I'm aware about so I haven't complained much.

    My Samsung, old HTCs, every other Android has been pretty much flawless except this pixel 3. I may go to OnePlus or back to Samsung or something next time.

    No. They've been around for many years. They got off to a pretty rocky start due to poor quality control, poor customer service, and backing out on promises they made but the last couple years or so they have righted the ship. Like 3 years ago there was zero chance I would have even considered a OnePlus phone, but if I stick with Android for my next purchase, OnePlus is going to be very much in the running.

    It is fully optional. You can keep the two button mode or even the old three button mode.

    After a week, I'm fully on board with the gestures now. Especially using "swipe right" on the left edge of the screen in place of the back button.

    I like the gestures but to use them it forces you to use the default Google home launcher app, which is mediocre. I'd rather use Nova Launcher or Action Launcher and the two or three button mode. than be forced to use Google's launcher to get gestures.

    Been using the gestures for a while now since I was on the beta. The official release is so much better than the beta was. Thank God too because I was about to go back.

    My wife's refusal to take her phone off of silent mode is going to be the death of me. Is there an app or way to bypass that and make it ring in certain situations? She already has priority calls set up for nighttime, but I need a daytime personal exemption

    can you give yourself a personal ringtone while also setting her default ringtone as an empty/noiseless audio file? That is probably not perfect but it would help for phone calls...
