The Pixel 2's back kinda looks like an upside down first gen iPhone...

That would be for the "Black & White" XL model, but yeah it certainly looks that way. At least all the other color options are not opposite colors. Gotta say I like their color naming scheme though.

If there is no headphone jack, they should have some sort of port to replace it otherwise it's just a phone with no headphone jack and nothing else.

hello!

is it me you're looking for?

Desktop: X99-PC

CPU: i7 5820k

Mobo: X99 Deluxe

Cooler: Dark Rock Pro 3

RAM: 32GB DDR4
GPU: GTX 1080

Storage: 1TB 850 Evo, 1TB HDD, bunch of external hard drives
PSU: EVGA G2 750w

Peripherals: Logitech G502, Ducky One 711

Laptop:

-Overkill Dell XPS

Fully maxed out early 2017 Dell XPS 15, GTX 1050 4GB, 7700HQ, 1TB nvme SSD, 32GB RAM, 4k display. 97Whr battery :x 
Dell was having a $600 off sale for the fully specced out model, so I decided to get it :P

 

-Crapbook

Fully specced out early 2013 Macbook "pro" with gt 650m and constant 105c temperature on the CPU (GPU is 80-90C) when doing anything intensive...

A 2013 laptop with a regular sized battery still has better battery life than a 2017 laptop with a massive battery! I think this is a testament to apple's ability at making laptops, or maybe how little CPU technology has improved even 4+ years later (at least, until the recent introduction of 15W 4 core CPUs). Anyway, I'm never going to get a 35W CPU laptop again unless battery technology becomes ~5x better than as it is in 2018.

Apple knows how to make proper consumer-grade laptops (they don't know how to make pro laptops though). I guess this mostly software power efficiency related, but getting a mac makes perfect sense if you want a portable/powerful laptop that can do anything you want it to with great battery life.

Isn't that why they were talking about USB Type C?

There should be two type-c ports, not just one. There are a lot of phones with both headphone jack and type-c, so without the headphone jack the pixel 2 is missing something. Implementing a second type c port would probably take up less space than a headphone jack anyway

Or a dongle jk. I think we are at the point that manufacturers want one port to rule them all! That or a 100% wireless device (Maybe Apple has the courage to do so :P )

Ooh, I can't wait to experience the piss poor performance due to interference!

Come Bloody Angel

Break off your chains

And look what I've found in the dirt.

 

Pale battered body

Seems she was struggling

Something is wrong with this world.

 

Fierce Bloody Angel

The blood is on your hands

Why did you come to this world?

 

Everybody turns to dust.

The blood is on your hands.

Am I the only person that actually loved the phone? I preordered it already because my 1year old mint condition 6p got the bootloop of death... This phone looks great, especially since it provides the full Google experience and I love it!

Once my 5x hits the boot loop issue, I'm probably going to patch it to continue working at the expense of performance if they don't eventually have an offer to replace it. (Nice benefit of ordering from google I guess)

Same with my 5x besides the occasional time (once every 2 months) when the phone gets very hot (Even when its an SD808) and 2GB of ram.

The 808 runs very warm.

 

My LG G4 ran very hot at times and so did the Moto X and BB Priv

What I meant by that was that the SD810 warmed up even more and often throttled (I think that was the reason for the 808 in the G4)

Sometimes, if lucky I am able to boot into my OS, it works but throwing a lot of work at the phone seems to crash it

The 810 was worse but the 808 over time wasn't much better off.

 

I couldn't count how many times I had to take the G4 out because it ran so hot in my pocket even when asleep.

I now have a Moto Z Play, couldn't be happier. I really like the SD625.

Here's a fix if you want it to be more functional (at the expense of performance but at this point wouldn't matter):

I remember wrapping the phone in layers of ice in bags surrounding the phone and that didn't help much. Also didn't help that this would continue to happen even after rebooting or turning it off for a minute. The issue seems to happen less frequently with the ElementalX kernel but I don't know the cause.

Yeah I know. I just find it too annoying to be wired to a powerbank.

 

I have a Turbopowermod, which is so easy to bring with you, stick it on the phone.

The 6p also got really hot without a xase, I have decided to just get the s8+
