Is there anyway to customize the phone so the volume buttons or power button can immediately silence a notification/ringtone? In order for me to do so, I always have to unlock the phone and then open the app(text message/whatsapp/phone call).
I've been contemplating the Pixel 2 XL, after this video I am placing my order. I have a Note 8 and a iPhone X. The Note 8 screen cracked and its $650 to replace the screen where I live, so I bought the iPhone X. But that phone as cool as it may be just lacks 80% of the things I do on a regular basis. I can't use apple pay anywhere (the store said it works at Coach and Starbucks, I don't go to either of those places) my Samsung watch works for pay every single place I have ever gone if if they use 10 year old tech, as it sends out a magnetic field. I can't track sleep with the apple watch, the phone cant pay anywhere except cvs, the screen is really small, smaller than the 5.5 iPhone 8 plus and I like larger screens. Apps look better on Android, use to be the other way around, not anymore. I cant even control my house or even the temp in my house from the apple phone, I can do that with voice on google. I would get the Note 8 again, but if I'm going to spend $650 on a new screen I figure just buy a new Google phone as my Note 8 as much as I love it never updates. Thanks for your video, you made my life easier :)
Accidentally triggering the double tap action... HA! 99% of the time you have to almost punch your phone with all your might to get it to turn on. That's I've thing I give to Apple. I pick up my iPhone X and boom, the display turns on. Tap the screen, it turns on without any lag.
I do like the Pixel 2, it is a good phone but I settled on a OnePlus 5T and love it. I just cant see spending a thousand dollars on a phone thats outdated in a matter of a couple of months. Even OnePlus is guilty of this with the 5.
Dylan Snyder Lil Pump is so retarded. He only says two words, he doesn't know how to behave on an airplane, and for a 17-year-old, he isn't in school. In a few months, people are going to forget about him.
Stephen Lewandowski once you activate the developer settings and you don't see the change icon shape in home settings,try turning the dev settings off then on again. Sometimes restarting the phone helps too
Stephen Lewandowski Activate developer options by clicking the Build number, then go into the stock launcher settings. Forgive me if I am wrong, but there should be the adaptive icon shape setting there
Chris Emerick How do you actually change the icon shapes? Where in the settings can you find this? I've wanted to modify it without a 3rd party launcher but I can't find the setting. I believe I've seen the option on the first gen pixels but not the second gen
+Call Me Candy Man soo far soo excellent. i would recommend it anyone no matter from which Custom Skin or OS they are coming. its the best phone ever made.
only thing i wish could have been better is if the phone would have been 5.5 inch instead of 5 inch.
