    I need a pic editor

    Another recommendation for Snapseed. It's a fantastic mobile photo editor.

    Pixel XL or LG V20 ??

    I like what LG is trying to do, but I've had too much trouble with their devices over the years. If the V20 had been released within a week or two of it being announced instead of over a month later, I would have given very serious consideration during the first and second Note 7 recalls. But LG...

    Pixel XL: First Impressions

    The navigation buttons disappear when you use a full screen app, such as a game or when watching a video in landscape. The developer has to build it into the app.

    Screen Brightness

    Using the manual settings, both appear to reach a similar brightness. In auto mode, the Note 7 gets noticeably brighter since that's when it will kick the brightness into overdrive. But overall, the readability in direct sunlight is not an issue for the Pixel.

    Screen Brightness

    My Pixel XL doesn't get as bright as my Note 7 in direct sunlight, but I can see the screen on the Pixel just fine.

    lock screen notifications not working?

    Yeah, not an option on the Pixel. Hopefully Google adds it back in.

    Google Pixel Cases

    I'm using this thin TPU case from Sparin right now. I wanted to have something to protect the phone from day one, and this was readily available at an inexpensive price with good reviews. The fit and finish is really good, and I can see myself using this case often when I want a very slim...

    lock screen notifications not working?

    Sadly while the Pixel does have a Moves section in the settings, lift to check isn't there. The Pixel currently has swipe for notifications, jump to camera, and flip camera.

    Pixel XL: First Impressions

    Added a few additions to my original post regarding outdoor visibility and battery life. Thumbs up to both.

    lock screen notifications not working?

    Notifications aren't showing up for me either when I pick up the phone with ambient display on. I've seen several reports of that being the case for others as well. The double tap to wake/view ambient display feature isn't available on the Pixel yet. Supposedly that's coming later.

    Pixel XL: First Impressions

    I hated giving up expandable storage, wireless charging and waterproofing. Those are the three things that keep the Pixel XL from being my dream device. That said, even without those three things, I've been more impressed by the Pixel XL in my first few hours with it than I've been by any other...

    Pixel XL: First Impressions

    FedEx just dropped off my 128 GB Pixel XL (Quite Black). Overall, I'm extremely impressed in my short time with it. Here are some initial thoughts on the device: It feels great in hand. Definitely feels like a premium device. Usability would be better without the large lower chin. It's...

    Little quirks?

    To edit the quick settings in the notification shade, long press any of the toggles. I haven't had any issues with the notification light. Some apps have a setting for using the light, so that could be your culprit if it's consistently not working with certain apps. I don't use the Samsung...

    Galaxy Note 7 Cases

    I've been a fan of the Spigen Slim Armor cases for a long time. But the fit and finish is poor for the Note 7. The rubber extends past the plastic slightly on the sides making it sharp in your hand. Very disappointed by it.

    Cant unlock phone with iris scanner

    Glad you were able to track down the culprit.

    Cant unlock phone with iris scanner

    If you're just sliding to get past the lock screen, the phone isn't actually locking. If the screen has to be off for a while, it sounds like you may not have the phone set to lock automatically when pressing the power button and/or you have it set for Lock Automatically to kick in after a...

    Cant unlock phone with iris scanner

    If it's unlocking when you swipe, you either have smart lock turned on and are in a situation where it keeps your phone unlocked or there's something not set in the lock screen security settings. Settings for both of those can be found under "Lock screen and security" in the settings.

    Cant unlock phone with iris scanner

    It doesn't have to be locked for any specific amount of time on mine. I can lock the phone, then immediately unlock it and iris scanning is available after swiping on the screen. Sent from my SM-N930V using Tapatalk

    Watch or memory card

    Memory card for me. I already have two Android Wear watches, so I wouldn't use the Fit.

    Anyone else get an update tonight?

    Another update is rolling out today (Software Version MMB29M.G930VVRU2APB5 for the S7, MMB29M.G935VVRU2APB5 for the S7 Edge). It's supposed to improve "Wi-Fi connectivity on Marshmallow OS, and fixes issues including trouble connecting to the internet, frequent data disconnections, and problems...
