Thanks. Thinking of resetting the phone due to some issues,
- can't double tap to wake
- can't activate Google assistant via the squeeze
- adaptive brightness not working

Went to the individual settings but to no avail

Rebooting doesn't help?

Hopefully it is a software problem. I hate to do the factory resetting.

Ever since I setup my Pixels from 1 to 2, I don't need to do a factory reset at all.

Can we login to another phone with the same account as in our pixel and access our pictures there in Google photos?

like the look of the smaller pixel render. basically almost like the S10e up front. Single hole punch looks way better than the double hole punch. That said, based on the last 3 generation of pixels, both big and small pixel always had the same exact camera setup. I don't feel like Google will change this strategy though.

Yes the golf hole looks so much better.

I actually like things centered. I wish the rear camera can be centered instead of at top left corner when viewing it from the rear.

Because very often when i take pictures in landscape, i tilt my phone clockwise from portrait. Then people will ask why i hold it that way. Simply because im a left hander so i tilt it clockwise to use my left thumb to snap pictures.

I agree with some that the p3xl's notch is a little too thick. Maybe google have their reasons for needing that much space? Sensors and such. Samsung on the other hand did a good job of making their s9/s9+ note9 screens near bezel-less without a notch.

Apple on the other hand has a very good purpose for its notch(face id).

Wonder what pixel 4 will bring us, shall keep in view.

My pixel 2 xl experience has been so great that im probably gonna stick to what google has to offer although i agree samsung probably has the better hardware. But pixel offers the best software experience for any android phone imo
