    No, my brother and I have been very pleased across maybe 4 installs.

    Since its expensive I watched and rewatched both the official step by step video and another one on YT to make sure I got everything in order.

    6a has been much worse. Closing browser tabs has helped some, but still.

    I don't feel that way about the man. but damn what a bad response from a PR perspective. He and to a lessor extent apple, is going to get some heat for this.

    No, but I heard they're including the pixel watch, so I'll gladly take one of y'all's if you don't want it.

    I was pretty interested in the watch, but the arstechnica overview wasn't very promising. I guess we'll see

    Bought a Pro for myself, a regular 7 for my wife, a watch for my wife, and the Gen 2 wired doorbell.

    We have a problem.

    I was intrigued by the watch until I realized that I don't wear a watch and any sort of jewelry annoys me.

    So for that reason, I'm out.

    With all the offers + trade in etc, I think it would be $130 + tax for a P7Pro, coming from a P6Pro.

    That is definitely worth it for this zoom and extra year of warranty/support, imo.

    ah fuck it. my trade-in value his half of the total with tax. paying 481, plus the 200 in google store credit, i think is worth it. .

    I assume the Google store credit can't be applied to the purchase of the phone?

    I've been using my P7P for almost 24 hours now. The battery, so far, doesn't seem much better than my p6p. The fingerprint scanner is better for sure. I definitely think the modem is much improved. That was my biggest complaint with the p6p. I loved the camera on the p6p and this one is absolutely better. So far, I really like it.

    Some people didn't like the 6/6 Pro because it struggled to do actual phone things. Apparently the new modem is better so signal actually connects
