    It's just my opinion. I think the insider program was better because you had more people willing to actually give feedback and it allowed builds to be run on phones MSFT wasn't necessarily going to update.

    I don't get a sense that especially on Andrpid with some of these OEMs you're getting that sort of feedback which may lead to the builds being out faster. MIt's just my opinion.

    Had orientation tonight and it went well. I even asked questions. I was glad to be there for the live event \o/

    I learned a lot too. OMG in one week, I'll be in class right now!

    On a less exciting note, it looks like I'll be holding on to my Galaxy A3 2017 until it fails me. Samsung adjusted the A series of last year that had 3 phones of different sizes, the A3 being the smallest. Now the A series is down to 2 phones, which have decent specs but both are just big. Like noticeably taller than the Pixel 2.

    As weird as this might sound, I'm glad that I wasn't able to sell it after all (I might have regretted doing that if it worked out). I'll love to try it against the Sony Xperia XA2 when it comes to performance and of course the cameras, provided that the reviews don't suck.

    Breathe. You'll be fine.

    I'm waiting for the complaining about how stressful the work is. Lol. Welcome to grad school.

    Thanks. I'm excited for it but also wondering how this will go.

    Haha, it will come. I only have one class next week so I'll keep you all posted on how day 1 is, but my first full week will be the real deal with both classes. I need to figure out the food thing for myself though. I have a plan for studying and such at the moment.

    Call me when you have multiple papers to do and are stressed.

    When I was living with an ex while she was in seminary school, when she would get crazy stressed we would do some "whoopie"(urban dictionary it)/iPadding (in these parts) to reset her and keep it moving.

    Since that may or may not work for you, other forms of self care and stress management is recommended.

    Haha, yeah I'm sure I'll get there.

    That's good that those things helped, I'm good though. I'll have to seek other things, which I haven't really thought about since I'm trying to get through these books in time. After that, I'll probably be forced to think about it.

    You'll be fine. It's another formative experience.

    Long day had ended. Got another long week ahead next week.

    Just want a cold adult beverage. And a new phone to mess around with before I send it back to 99. Lol.

    Vlad is my favorite writer/reviewer at The Verge. Also some of the other ones that do good work seemed to have moved on to other things. I think folks have become comfy now that they have a big Corporate parent in Vox Media.

    Great article, thanks for sharing.

    Ugh I didn't know this was so messy. Wow.
    It kind of makes me think of what MKBHD was trying to find in his recent video.

    Since I haven't really followed this, this is shocking to me. You have mentioned gripes about this before but I really had no idea that there were so many.

    Yeah I really get it now. I'm dreading the day when I need to make this decision with the next phone to come. Not immediately since the XA2 still has a headphone jack.

    Not related but your recent post on the blog made me realize something that I didn't realize before reading it. Glad that you wrote about it, and shared your viewpoint on that issue after all.

    The thread here asking people if they still use a Windows phone has very interesting responses, but it also goes to show that each person uses their phone differently.

    It's why I want to get certain things snad enjoy them while I can. Was tempered to get a HTC 10, but I'll pass and grab a V30+ at some point later this year.

    Makes sense. I think this is the best plan, and also the price should drop pretty good by then.
