    Man, I hate to hear that you're getting bad battery life. From what I've been reading here, I'm getting the impression that you're not liking Andy's phone too much. Sorry to hear that.
    Contrary to that, I do like Andy's phone so far. Screen is nice, weight in hand is good, performance is generally acceptable speed wise, very compact for my needs, and the bare bones aspect for me isn't a bad thing - it just means I've got less cruft on board.

    I am one of the few people who may prefer their camera app over the Pixel's.

    The things that bug me are the lack of headphone jack which shoves Bluetooth headphones or dongles down your throat. Not so sure about the battery life yet and there are times it doesn't feel as quick as it did in the store.

    Ok. I'm glad it was a misunderstanding then. I too think it's a really good phone. It's the first smaller sized phone that I've used that made me realize that I could get by using a phone with a screen that was less than 6 inches or more. I also really like the screen on/off sounds. 😁 Glad you are digging the phone though.

    It's ok. A DAC with a 3.5mm jack and better cameras would make the experience even better, but I knew that these weren't an option going in. I suppose if I had a V30 to compliment it right now I'd feel better, but realistically, the tablet gets the most use so I suppose juggling two phones isn't that helpful...

    Okay, today was exactly a 17 hour day with over 500 miles of driving. So I will just leave these pictures here. More stuff in a day or two.

    I do like the screen on Andy's phone. I'll enjoy it better when the blue light filter is activated...

    Installed 8 on the Sony XZ.

    Hopefully it's more stable than what my wife has had to put up with.

    She's not happy...

    I have seen some issues while searching before installing. Apparently there are some improvements though.

    I'll see how it goes...

    Please keep us posted. I'm curious, what issues is she having? The XZ1 Compact launched with Oreo already so I'm surprised to hear that she is having issues with it. Unless you mean another phone, of course.

    No it's the XZ1 compact. She's got freezing and restarting. Seems mostly attached to audio things on her phone.

    Like taking on the phone...

    I've heard with my phone that some apps crash, Bluetooth...

    So far...Andy's phone is OK. It does what I ask, so that's nice. I think I'll enjoy it more on 8.0 and when I get a better pair of wired headphones.

    How much snow have you gotten? It's frigid here as well. It's currently -8° C and cloudy in Cleveland.

    No snow yet. They say we may see something on Saturday.

    I could blame the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, but there's other things to blame him about...

    As much as I detest said occupant of the White House, the problem started before he became Public Nuisance #1 . No, I blame his followers and those of his ilk for denying the problem, propagating the lies and eventually putting him in power to further their agendas.

    Death Valley had a lot of borax operations in the 19th century. These are taken by Salt Creek and Harmony Borax Works.
