Very commonly on 3G and rarely on 4G it'll drop the signal for no reason, it can get quite warm even while doing stuff like web browsing (specially if i have mobile data on), at random certain apps will crash leaving the phone unresponsive for a small time, if I use it while it's charging on a Samsung 5V/1A charger it'll have ghost touch, and today it decided not playing music was a good idea, it nearly made me fall asleep and not wake up for school, had to reset it for it, it will also rarely reset itself again for no reason battery is kind of eh too by like 4-5PM I'll have anywhere from 40% to 15% left it also blows for games but considering I paid like $120 bucks in local currency I can't complain much on that area
Isn't Chrome OS slowly integrating Linux apps? That has a lot of potential. With graphics acceleration, it could really be something. But yeah, I don't really understand who the Pixel Slate is for
Yeah, ghost touches suck. But I haven't had any other issues after I flashed lineageOS and used exkernel to underclock the CPU.
Do you get the signal drop problem on Stock or Lineage?
My Pixel XL's battery is slowly dying so I think it's time to switch. I've been looking at Nokia's lineup for a while now and everything looks decent from the 7.1 upwards, it's a tough choice. Don't see the point in getting expensive flagships phones now, especially when all I do is browse the internet and use messaging apps.

It is however tempting to get a Xiaomi Mi A1 ive seen it quite cheap specially the 32GB variant
So finally got the update to Android Oreo on my Moto G5 today (8.1.0 Security Patch level 1st August 2018). Guess that means I will be looking for a new phone tomorrow knowing Lenovo.
I'm using this to limit phone's charge between 40 and 80%, surprised something like that exists https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.slash.batterychargelimit
I got updated to Android 9 yesterday, how do I get rid of the ugly white searchbar below and of the unwanted date at the top of the screen? I don't really want to switch launchers https://i.imgur.com/8LKP6s0_d.jpg?maxwidth=640&shape=thumb&fidelity=medium
switch launchers
Bought a USB Type-C to Type-A Female adapter hoping I could use ethernet with my Xperia X Compact, none of the ethernet adapters I have work with it and a quick internet search says it does not support ethernet. Oops. At least I can use the adapter for other stuff. Any way to make it work or is there nothing I can do? I dug around in the settings, I could not find anything regarding ethernet in particular.
Going to have to switch launchers if those things aren't widgets, unfortunately.
Do you guys think it's worth getting the Pixel 3 for the purposes of knowing it's an Android phone that will work, and continue work for a number of years without fault?
Knowing Google's track record? No, not really.
It's got a whole range of hardware and software issues.
My Z2 Play got updated to Oreo yesterday (late af I know) and I've noticed that the nav buttons kinda shift around a bit for some reason. It's an incredibly minor detail but I tend to notice it. I looked online and saw some other people complaining, and someone said its actually intentional, introduced in Oreo, for the nav buttons to shift around against your will after every lock to prevent burn in. I don't know how much I believe that, but I can't find much else on the web about it. Nobody seems to notice, or it's just a small handful of people that it happens to have the problem. So basically has anyone else noticed this on your O device? Is there a way to turn it off?
If it's an AMOLED device that's forced to prevent burn-in of the nav buttons. Just kinda deal with it, I guess. Or install a custom ROM if you can.
hi as someone who just got his pixel 3 the photos bug they're probably going to fix in next security update and will likely also fix the memory management (they changed the garbage collection daemon). speakers can probably be resolved via EQ stuff
I got my myself a Pixel 2 recently. Is it just me or is it a fucking mess to put some fucking music folders onto the phone to be able to listen to them? No adapter to connect to PC, you can't download folders, only single songs. Why is it so hard?
I remember getting an Android phone for the first time thinking "hell yeah, finally syncing music is as easy as connecting using USB, and copying files over" - then it turned out OnePlus 5's USB speeds are horrible, and I ended up using FTP Wi-Fi transfer
Yeah, it's genuinely easier to just use an FTP server or something MTP is hot garbage
Did you know there's literally no way to transfer files between accounts without root/internet? Not evene sd cards work.
Yeah I would have been cool with a file manager type application. I'm pretty sure that exists with ADB, but it would be nice to have something official. I mean that's what MTP does, but shittier.
https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/237053/d86c9b54-213c-486d-aad8-09d542286eb6/Lackpunkte.JPG Does somebody know if this can be fixed at a repair station? Bought my Pixel 2 on monday and it's missing some paint already. I'm really annoyed, since I don't have the phone for long and it wasn't cheap. I have no idea how this happened. It never fell on the floor, no scratches on display, nothing except the missing paint. And since it's the Just Black version I notice it more.
it's just a superficial scratch, why stress over it. normal wear and tear
Get a case?
I've only really had two Android phones - a Nexus S, which I switched to an iPhone 5 after it became slow as shit, and this XZ Premium, which I got because Win10M died. Both have had weird problems that I didn't experience on either iOS or WP8.1/W10M phones (charging port becoming loose, extreme slowdown, phantom touch input, odd call dropping.)  I'm looking for an android phone that just 'works'. Good camera, good battery, that will last a while and with as little problems as possible. Oh, and global bands, please.
I'm just a bit mad about myself and how I got that scratch considering that it's not even been one week since I got it. I think I'll get over it. I purchased two as soon as I got it from Amazon. One wasn't great to use and the second is yet to arrive. Local electronic stores don't have any, unfortunately.
