God I wish I went pixel instead of iPhone 8.... Think its dumb to use swappa and trade my iPhone for a Pixel or just wait for the Pixel 3?
Iker Castillo (2 days ago)
Can you make a tutorial on how to do this? Especially with the Google Now. I have the GPXL2 but everything says PRO nor do i get the Google now.

Thanks . That's the launcher I was after for my pixel as nothing is, at the matter of fact, better then stock launcher for me..

Android has changed a lot since I had my nexus 4 with Kit Kat. After experiencing the slowness and bugginess of iOS 11 on my iPhone 6, I honestly really want to go back to Android. Ever since Lollipop was released, Android looks and feels a lot more "high-quality" than when I last used it. I'd really love to switch to a Pixel, but that Apple ecosystem is really hard to get out of and I don't really have any money at the moment. :(

I recently got off of social media which I love but I don't get all the news that I used to get now that I'm not on those platforms. can you recommend some news apps that I can use to keep up with what's going on? love your content, keep up the good work

Gonna go for a hybrid between your last video with Nova and mix it in with Lean to create a nice look.

Raymond Laracuenta (12 days ago)
How did you get Google Now to show up when you swipe right? It stopped doing that for me after I installed LL. What app did you download to fix it?
Reaves1994 (12 days ago)
I think you and I are very similar, I can hardly go a full day with the same wallpaper. I'm always wanting to change it and make it better. Same with all my home screen layouts, I think I have an obsession
Rebekah Kersey (12 days ago)
What is the "hotseat background" setting? I don't seem to notice what it does.
frootEpebbles (12 days ago)
Thanks for your Lean Launcher recommendation, I've been looking for a new launcher due to issues with Nova. Loving Lean Launcher so far!

Thanks for posting this. Just got my pixel 2 XL and came across your video. Super helpful! I'll be going through your other videos about customization!
Michael Johnson (12 days ago)
Walloop is the worst app I've downloaded. You have to buy keys to unlock wallpapers, and that's just to view them.

You promote your channel way too much. Keep it subtle. Otherwise, great video.

Tom L Within a year and half of producing videos for this channel, this is about the first time I've promoted my channel here.
craig bryan (13 days ago)
With Lean do you still have access to the Google news feed?
Zachary Anderson (13 days ago)
craig bryan Yes, but you have to install an add-on. It's very easy.
Tarun sankar Perumal (13 days ago)
awesome video quality but yet low subscriber count. damn!
Tentacular (13 days ago)
Good video, but it really shows how colourless the screen on this phone is. Looks so muted. One big flaw on an otherwise great phone.

The pixel launcher is really quite shit, I'm really glad things like nova launcher exist.
Aaron Arguelles (13 days ago)
ffs Nova Launcher hasn't been updated to have the latest Pixel effects like spring effect and app drawer gradients.

Not gonna lie, I miss Android customisation, and that P2XL looks hot. And yes, I thought the two KWGT widgets were one widget. I know KLWP. I assume KWGT is more of the same, but widgets, rather than live wallpapers. One of the first things I'll be buying when I come back to Android. Which I most certainly will, whether it's this year or next or possibly 2020. I got an iPhone 6s in 2016, and while I don't love iOS, I've carried two Android phones to the 22 month mark and couldn't wait to trade up, and only one to the 23 month mark, which is where I'm at now. And now I would love to go back to Android, but my phone is still running great, and frankly I can't afford to just drop a G on a phone because I like the OS better. I don't think the Pixel 3 will have 5G. I think it'll use the SD845, which is looking to be a great chip, for only having an LTE modem. I'm hoping, I think we're all hoping that SD855 will have 5G and that'll be in the Galaxy S10, LG G8, and Pixel 4/XL. Tentatively, Pixel 4 XL is what I'm considering to be my next phone, unless P3XL blows me away and I cave. I've just never had a smartphone be usable and good this long. Again I don't love iOS, but it works for me. It's tolerable. It's not my first choice, but I'm not gonna toss a perfectly good phone for one with a better OS. I'll wait until it's no longer a perfectly good phone.

Great video love the new launcher. My only question is how do you get the Google now cards on the left most home screen?
Ryon McAuley (11 days ago)
I believe it's on a guthub page, not officially on the app store. Probably something along the lines of Lean launcher Google companion
Raymond Laracuenta (12 days ago)
What is the name of the app? Thanks.
Ryon McAuley (14 days ago)
requires a separate app for the time being

I customized my Galaxy S8. I uninstalled everything, disabled everything, and used a package blocker. My phone no longer is able to do anything. Not message, no calls, definitely no internet. I am able to get 20 plus hours on one charge though.

Where is your s9 video? Waiting!
Te5ter (14 days ago)
Couldn't help but notice the dropped frames when you were interacting with your phone. Not sure if this was due to the way this was filmed, or if the launcher is lagging the phone
Ryon McAuley (14 days ago)
A large amount of third party launchers are poorly done. Nova and stock are pretty much the best ways to go for speed and stability, and stock is better stability and battery life than Nova. I use the pixel 2 XL, love it, but use the stock launcher for the fluidity and battery life. No stuttering.
chancy319 (14 days ago)
