    That's what I forgot.

    If you change your display to saturated the blue tint is even less to hardly noticeable at all.

    Someday you guys will finally realize that Samsung is where it's at!

    (They only explode and/or catch fire occasionally)

    And update phones slowly, as well as find ways to lag over time, requiring a steady reboot to clear the cache, regardless of how much hardware gets thrown at it. All because Samsung feels their TouchWiz software is so great that the world wouldn't mind the lag if only they could be graced by the opportunity to experience the greatness of TouchWiz.

    I'll stick with my blue tint pixel 2xl.

    Only thing I'm hating is TouchWiz and slow updates. Fix that and maybe I'll give Samsung another look.

    But I do applaud Samsung for making a note phone this year that didn't double as a hot dog cooker.

    I don't like touchwiz either so I use a third party launcher.

    I don't mind TouchWiz and it's actually been vastly improved on both my S7 Edge & my current S8 Plus, but I've still always used a third party launcher simply for the wider range of customization it provides. I actually wanted to leave my S8 stock for longer than a day this time, but I couldn't deal with them dedicating the homescreen to the left to Bixby. So I threw a launcher on that evening and remapped the Bixby button... problem solved.

    That would actually be a great poll question:
    How many people use/keep the stock launcher as their daily driver & how many people prefer a third party launcher.
    I know a lot of people don't like TW and thats perfectly understandable... it's definitely an acquired taste But I don't think I know anyone who doesn't use a third party option anyways, regardless of the make/model they prefer.

    It would be a great poll question but unfortunately, since I joined this forum a few months ago, I started several polls and it seems extremely few will respond :-( but then it could have been the subject matter too :)

    I think the main reason for no responses is the polls do not appear in Tapatalk, and most people use Tapatalk on their phone ) tablet to access the forum and not a PC browser. I say that judging by the signature blocks of most posts, most are Tapatalk signature.

    I had no idea you created polls. Were the subjects relevant to the forum? Tech related?

    I agree with that 100 percent. I think the only way to be about to run a poll is to let people know it's there via Tapatalk.
