    Something cool about themes. The stock themes (first screenshot) are compatible with night mode. I'm using the blue theme (2nd screenshot), in combination with night mode (3, 4, &5).

    Themes that are 3rd party devs most likely will not work with night mode...[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Also, if you drag the home button to the right, it will open recents, and you can slide better recents with your thumb (found on Reddit).[​IMG]

    I've been using nothing but gestures...but I believe edge lighting doesn't work ..I don't use lighting but those that do use it might be issue ..I love the gestures so used to them ..along with one handed plus all I need ..

    Good to know thanks. I'm kind of torn. I love my nav bars. Always have. I feel that it is a cool unique feature of Android that I enjoy. That said, I tried out gestures the other day, and found that I kind of liked it. Maybe I'll use both lol.

    Once you start using gestures you won't miss them.... It takes a little bit but second nature... On my Pixel I used them too... It's best for me...

    Well its been (3? Lol) weeks on the S10. So far so good, still love it. A couple of things:

    -Battery has been solid. I can get a good 5 to 6 hours a day SOT, plus Dex use, plus Spotify streaming, Netflix, Youtube, etc. and still have a good leftover chunk at bed time. Maybe I should use my phone less lol.
    -I don't mind the front facing camera at all. Actually I kind of like it.
    -Same thing on the power button. I am used to it now.
    -The prism black is a really cool blueish color in the light/at an angle. Too bad I have a case on it at all times.
    -Fingerprint is ok, not great, but works. Part of that is that I left the screen protector on. I like the smart lock feature.
    -I really liked the screen protector. I gouged it by accident, which is kind of annoying, but it is still better than one that I would apply, so I am going to leave it.
    - I have noticed that the phone stays nice and cool. I don't play any graphic intensive games (Pacman maybe lol), but even when I am streaming Netflix/Youtube, it stays nice and cool.
    -I keep my screen resolution at full resolution. I used to reduce it to 1080p on my Note 8 for battery, but found that is not needed on this phone.
    -Speaking of screen, man is it good. Sound too.

    I agree on plenty of things..

    Battery is ridiculous.. I'm using it daily some days I will totally throw everything at it.. This past Saturday I streamed UFC for 4 hrs.. Youtube and web... Forums and social media... Google maps... It went 8 hrs SOT and I went to bed before 2am unplugged since early morning it had 19% left... Screen adaptive and full screen resolution..

    Screen is awesome.. One of the best always top notch.. Speakers are loud and nice sound for not front facing...


    Fingerprint I've retrained and now they work 90% or better..


    Themes are good wish it supported Substratum but that's going away I think across devices...

    I could use some more fonts.. Used to be able to load your own can't figure that out..

    Nice feel in hand and surprisingly easier to hold with size.. much better than previous phones including Note 9 feel in hand..
