    Now that I've had it for about a day, I'm quickly getting used to the Gesture Nav. But I do hope that a future update brings two-directional sliding on the pill. I've not gone through enough normal usage cycles yet to tell whether Adaptive Battery is doing anything.

    I'll admit, maybe I'm the oddball. But I actually do like the clock on the left ;)

    Agreed - This is the first OTA I've taken in many years. They did a fine job. If the "Pill" were all by it's "Applish" self, then Slide Right/Left would not only be useful, and very thumb friendly as well as distinguishing itself from Apple.

    The funniest thing is I accidentally discovered split screen, who knew ? I've been out of the loop with a 3 year old ROM I never updated, so much I been missing.

    I was totally against the clock on the left when I first downloaded the beta, but it's grown on me. Same for the new navigation. Took me a bit to get used to it, but it works just fine for me now.

    Thanks CJ - every few years I get some new tech requires new knowledge.

    Noticed the update was available late Wednesday, and ran the update yesterday morning. Have the 3 buttons, and like having them. Sorta the devil you know thing.

    I will say that this is the reason I have the Pixel 2XL. Love the prompt updates.
