Also, note to self. Change the CPT logo in Tapatalk so it is round (if that is possible)

You need to change keyboard vibration of in the Google keyboard settings.

I got the case Corey recommended today. Seems to double the thickness of the phone. The Pixel is marginally smaller than my Note 4 that had a low profile case

I should be getting my skin shortly. I am almost certain it will not go on as nicely as they look in pictures.

Why is that? Is that like putting a sock on before a boot?

Mostly curiosity. I usually go caseless, but if the skin looks decent under the clear case I'll give it a go

You gotta take a picture of this. I have no idea what is going on. Does the skin have a pattern?

maybe ive just been on crappy hand me down apple phones too long but i am AMAZED by this phone. love the fingerprint on the back, speed is incredible




Tyler the skin, as i understand is for looks, like xbones you put a skin on it to make it look cool, then the clear case is obviously to protect.

my glass screen protectors dont come until sat, so tempted no to put one on but i know i should.

Fingerprint scanner on the back makes so much sense, I think this is the 2nd line of Google phones that did that? My Note 4 fingerprint thing was so slow and janky I never used it, I haven't had any problems with it on the Pixel.

Jocelyn was looking at my phone yesterday and liked how I made the display smaller and did the same.
Settings. Display. Display Size. Small
I left the Font size to default.

Just set mine to display size small and font size largest. Apparently I can't read?

For reference the largest font setting paired with smallest display setting essentially makes font default size with small icons.

I didn't realize Google assistant is always listening, even when screen is off.

Say "Okay, Google" when your screen is off. Google is always listening!
