    This is the topic of discussion right now and I found an article that intrigued me on it that I'll like below.

    Is Google correct in trying to force the issue with calibrating the display or do you think they may be trying to hide a flaw in the POLED display that will not be found until after you uncheck the box?

    By the way a shout out to @CJM whose wallpaper I am using on my Note 8.

    At ~5:30 in the video? I helped Mad Season get going by taking a free dashboard from github and built his apk around it.

    My apk is called Project Wallboard

    Alright I agree with the folks that say see the phone for yourself. I wouldn't cancel your pre-order based on the complaints. You may not like it but see it for yourself and if then you don't like it return it.

    I plan on using it a few days solid before I can honestly post my for opinion. But so far not bad.

    you always hear about the complaints but very seldom do you hear praises. get the phone and find out for yourself :)

    It's true.. I've had nothing but a great experience no issues.. Talking with mods who have the phone and they absolutely love their phones with zero issues..

    could not tell the differences in the above post. imo, most would not even care. they just want a phone that works
