    Has anyone bought a case for the 6 Pro? Probably should get one delivered before the phone shows up

    I ordered a cheap one with a ring on it so I have something ready to go and can evaluate better options.

    Like having the ring for extra security, and these cases aren't great in general, but I've been using them with my OP 7 Pro that I've dropped 5-10 times and it's held up

    I usually get their neo-hydrid but they haven't come out with one for this phone.

    So is the Pixel pass worth it or should I just preorder it through TMobile?

    Pixel buds came today. Most likely they won't fit. Would anyone want them?

    This is the case I've had with my last two phones. I hate that it won't be delivered until Nov 9th.

    You think it provides enough protection? Was hoping it'd be a little stiffer (:quagmire:) because I don't want to immediately break this $900 phone

    Yolod and went with the $55 pixel pass. Didn't add the buds to the cart but the FAQ on the site says they will be emailing out codes for those of us that qualified.

    Those Spigen cases are both great (I've had one or the other for my last two phones). Always like the idea of a clear one, but they always yellow over time.

    I haven't broken a phone with it on one yet. I've had one on my OnePlus 8 for a year now and it's been dropped so many times. It's still tip top.

    Updated to 12 on my current 3a XL while waiting on the 6 pro. It's destroying my battery but the battery on this phone had already seen better days before the update as it's 2.5+ years old

    The s21+ Ultra video is amazing. They moved to the 128mp or whatever camera on the s20 Ultra but the jump from 20 to 21 was insane. Idk if they changed the processor or what but the 21 is light years better than the 20. The camera is really good but the video is just crazy.

    I really want to like Android 12. But is there no way to make the clock widget on the home screen transparent? I can't see most of my beautiful picture of ALMOST HEAVEN WEST VIRGINIA with this fingerpaint lookin' clock.

    My current set up. I'm a minimalist at heart. The gradient on the text is my battery percent. Click the time and date and it shows weather info.

    I fucking HATE icons on my homescreen.

    Web apps take up no space on your phone and have little to no access to permissions for your OS.

    Edit: I mean mobile sites.
