Is having the Pixel theme draining the battery more?
Where's phone app ?))

Notin on the app
Josué M. (19 days ago)
You also have to remove the headphone jack, remove de the microsd, remove the wireless charging, apply a blue filter to your screen and you got a Pixel.
Joey Crysel (19 days ago)
After my Note 8 got the Oreo update, the Pixel Navbar apk would not work. Even after reinstalling it and restarting it. Has anyone found a fix for this yet? I really don't like the ugly ass Samsung navbar lol.

I'm a lil bothered that 8.0 update took my pixel nav bar icons away on my note 8 🤨.. tried reinstalling the apk but nothing
phade91esj (27 days ago)
You said you're using the nova beta for that custom navigation bar. Where do I find that I have Nova beta as well but can't find it anywhere in the settings?

I need help with the zooper widget. Was trying to get it kind of like yours but always mess it up.

What app you used to hide the status bar ??!
Sarjio Chaudhary (2 months ago)
Look screen wallpaper
Kevin Montanez (2 months ago)
This is one reason I will always choose android over IOS, customization. You can make your phone look like ANY phone even IOS and Windows 10 if you're into that stuff. For me, I make my Note 8 look like half pixel 2 and half my style.
Richy Joseph (2 months ago)
The whole point of a note phone is the pen and it's features. You should have done this on a s8 or s8+. This is stupid.
Danny Random (2 months ago)
Why the hell do you people try to turn this amazing phone into pixel crap? Why just buy the pixel?

Olliver Petkac (2 months ago)
What do you use for texting? The stock Samsung messaging app? I have a Galaxy S6 and use Textra. I have this issue with texting on Android that text doesn't have the features like iPhone message app does or my text gets split up into pieces from sending and receiving. Does the Note 8 have enchanted messaging and any issues with texting?
Sai Pranay (2 months ago)
Buy pixel 2

You basically made your note 8 a pixel 2😑.... unless you own Google...
Shantanu Singh (3 months ago)
You can just use Pixel Launcher 2 ported by a developer on XDA, and you'll have 50% of the features listed here

Why not just buy a pixel ???
Tecno Pixel (3 months ago)

Why won't my apks install? Even when I have unknown sources on they still don't install
kennedy m. (4 months ago)
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...
Dina Rahmatika (4 months ago)
How did you apply Microbes LWP? I've managed to download the apk (and allow the third party installation) but nothing has changed...

Richard Darrington (4 months ago)
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!
Potato Lord (2 months ago)
Abdullah Zakir they work on my exynos s8, but i don't know maybe note8 is different
Skyler Johnson (6 months ago)
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
