You can just use Pixel Launcher 2 ported by a developer on XDA, and you'll have 50% of the features listed here

I use few apps on my main screen, but I space them out so I can see my background on every page. I don't like everything looking in perfect order for some weird reason.

this set up is so sexy... I'm usually a nexus/pixel guy, but since Samsung removed physical and capacitive buttons, their devices this year have been tempting. If you throw in the fact that you can make your Sammy flagship look like a Pixel, it's a win/win...

Best calendar widget in my opinion is "simple calendar". Actually shows your upcoming events vs just a calendar.

Those live Pixel wallpapers don't work on the exynos variant. Very few work, but the framerate is choppy. Hopefully this will become a feature built into Android Oreo soon!

This video is dope. I just got my Note 8 and I'm new to Android. All of this stuff is confusing to me coming from a iPhone. I'd really love if you made a tutorial on how to do all this stuff on your personal channel. I've tried messing around with some stuff and I can't get it to look anywhere near this.

Pretty sure with Zooper widget pro your able to add the battery widget onto the widget he has on there and then you change the text content to the battery percentage not the greatest tutorial but hope it's useful

47crazed (11 days ago)
i use both the note 8 and the iPhone X, but i still prefer using my iPhone than my Note 8 especially at work. I just love how iOS works! I love the apps, the google apps. everything is just organized and it works! the only thing i hate is the notification center. Every time i add more features, change the keyboard, add widgets or change the launcher on the Note, you'll start noticing the battery draining a bit faster than usual, even on stand by.it's fun customizing it but for me, i don't think it's really that necessary on iOS.

I don't really get why you would go from a note 8 to a pixel 2. At best, you're moving sideways. At worst, it's a downgrade in most respects.
Gio Galvez (3 months ago)
Zahir Merchant The Pixel 2 wouldn’t be a downgrade from the Note 8. Its just a different phone with different abilities. Note 8 is the best looking phone in everyone’s opinion. But its not the most advanced phone. Hell even switching to iPhone could be considered an upgrade but you would lose the customization abilities. The Pixel 2 is pure Google and it has a much more fluid experience. And the Pixel takes better pictures than the Note 8.
Sanjan Phukan (3 months ago)
I find it to be more aesthetically pleasing than Samsung’s or LG’s skins. That’s why I’ve customised my note 8 to have that material design feel to it.

I've customized my note 8 but I always end up deleting everything. Touchwiz has got a lot better plus now ya have swipe down for notifications on TW. Plus bixby is getting a hole lot better. Just my 2 cents
Richard Oentaryo (22 days ago)
Rizwann Iqbal BIG LOL FOR YA. For the record i am not a fanboy of android or IOS, i just got my ass hurt for too much laughing to all ur statements. I can say u said nonsense lies for having S8+ and note8 for both phone are quite similar only note8 has an s-pen, so upgrading to note8 from S8+ is totally unwise and stupid unless u r so fucking rich and have no idea to spend ur shits into something better. That is ur first bad joke. The second is, iphone? After a costy $1000 note 8? Last u 2 days of heavy usage? With only less than 3000mAH battery?... ahh... where did u bought ur iphone? I want one already!. Most iphones only last a day and yes maybe a little bit more depending of ones usage. But 2 days with heavy tasks is a blunt lie. It is an iphone not an ipad sir! Hahahaha. The third joke and the funniest of all is: if it is iphone that suits u best why did u bother buying note8 after (supposedly) dissappointed with the S8+ and just for pleasure during watching utube vids while S8+ can give u identical display? Man, lying without proper base of objective reasons just not do you any good and u became laugh stock.
Ryan Dougherty (1 month ago)
Android fans have become so angry, its upsetting. You guys are worse than angry vegans nowadays. What a shame, I am a long time fan of android, love the customization, but its the angry android users you see hurling insults at anyone who uses an iPhone that make me want to stay away.
Shahriar Ahmed (3 months ago)
Rizwann Iqbal LOL! what fact? If you actually used a S7 and S8 side by side u should have known that their UI doesn't look the same even though they have same android 7.0...which means u don't have an S8 or Note 8 😂 U upgraded from Note 4 to S7 and then bought S8+ and Note 8 too? 😂 and u intend to use iPhone 8 for 4 years?! 😂 dude, first learn to tell the truth...then learn ur facts. And iPhone 8+ battery gives u 2 days of usage with ULTRA HEAVY use?! 😂 ya in ur dreams 😂 gtfoh sheep! I didn't even talk to u, but u r a stupid troll who just have to poke his nose in matters u have no knowledge of 😏
Rizwann Iqbal (3 months ago)
Shahriar Ahmed and did you read what I said i have had Samsungs note 4, s7 edge, s8+and note 8 so how can you say that Apple rename the iphones and sell them to me it's doesn't make sense, and i wasnt whining i was just stating a fact and you took a fit lmfao
Shahriar Ahmed (3 months ago)

Meh, i like the pixel but stock android is boring(not as boring as ios tho) dont care what anybody says, i havent had a laggy Samsung, so the skin is not a problem for me, looks way better, LG's skin, i like too, not any laggy phones either, stock is so meh to me, just my 2 cents☺❤
