I have been a linux user for many years and abandoned Windows completely when mobile phone apps replaced my occasional need to use it. Just out of interest I thought I'd install Windows 10 on an old Dell XPS13 which will be running Ubuntu. What an eye-opener. I've hardly been able to use the laptop as it feels like every time I turn it on it's finishing an update which had already taken hours to download and install. When one of the updates finally worked it tried to change all the settings I had meticulously answered "no" to Microsoft defaults.
What has happened to Windows since W7 which was a very good OS. Where did it ll go wrong?
Interested to read your comment. I've owned all three iterations of the Pixel and the only reported problem I've had is the blue shift on the Pixel 2 XL (not really a bother for me as I seldom have a need to load a white screen and look at it whilst tilting the phone away from me). I've often wondered whether there really are multiple devices with faults or is it a case that anything wrong with a Google or Apple device is a good headline.
Am I the only person on the planet not obsessed with bezels? For me the perfect phone would be an Android in the style of the iPhone 8 Plus, 1080p screen and a couple of millimetres thicker than the 8 Plus to allow for a dirty great battery that would see me comfortably through a weekend. All these manufacturers are becoming like sheep, egged on by Youtube kiddies who think having to press a button to unlock your phone is too much like hard work.
"I disagree with this. I want a bezel."
Music to my ears. I thought I was the only one left who preferred bezels. I'm not an Apple fan but the design of their "Plus" phones with a big enough screen and plenty of room for a dirty great battery is fine for me. A poncey looking device with a ridiculously high-res screen is not a lot of use when it's run out of juice.
Although I am heavily into Android my wife has upgraded to an iphone 8 plus. I much prefer the hardware to the X. It seems like the whole of the tech review community has become obsessed with the the front of a phone being as close as possible to 100% screen. Am I the only one who prefers bezels?
I'm in the UK but managed to get hold of one of these. I think the main problem was a marketing campaign that placed this in competition with premium phones at a premium price followed by delays and release before it was really ready. After a few weeks of updates it's fast with no software blips and a camera that is not bad at all although not in the league of the Pixel 2 and latest iphones. Really nice to use a well-made phone without a case as the ceramic seems to be almost unscratchable.
Very pleased with mine. Very fast, pleasantly understated appearance and excellent signal and call quality. Battery life is on a par with iPhone4 which it has replaced. May be useful for others to know that on my unit the Battery Doctor app which made a significant improvement to the iPhone4 performance seemed to halve the battery life of the Nexus S. Back to normal once uninstalled.
