    Right now it's a Pixel device. Most likely Panda Pixel 2 XL.
    Gotcha. I'm wondering if you'll miss the size of the smaller Pixel. The Panda is so nice though.

    I haven't seen this commercial before. Thanks for sharing.
    It's directed by Spike Jonze.
    It's one of my all time favorite commercials.

    I'm going to miss it but maybe it's time for me to try out a big screen device. We shall see.

    I'm hit or miss on the big screens. love it for the media consumption but that's few and far between so usually enjoy something more compact for the majority of my usage.

    Same here. But my work travel has picked up considerably so the bigger screen devices have two advantages
    1. bigger battery
    2. easier to create/submit expense reports

    Yeah for sure. They have their advantages which i enjoy. It's likely more so I hate holsters and refuse to carry a phone in a holster and i don't want some 6 inch slab busting out of my pocket either.

    Real problems i face here ha ha

    Ah okay, I can understand that. Those sound like 2 noticeable advantages that you would feel immediately.

    That's true. Here in the DC Metro, we had snow but it's just wet. No delays, everything is on normal schedule. No freezing is happening here. Rain is expected soonish but then we are in the clear.
    Sadly, it's going sideways here. We're getting the snow. I'd prefer the rain of the two, honestly.

    At least I have my boots. I didn't want to break in the new ones, so it's the current old faithfuls that will do the heavy lifting.

    I honestly think that it's now harder to use VZW phones on T-Mobile. In fact, I think it's getting harder to use non T-Mobile phones on T-Mobile.

    Good luck with that. I can think of off quite a few uses for that kind of cash right now.

    I'm not looking forward to the evening commute. But since this ain't my first snow event, I'll rock out.

    So I'm test driving the new Pixie dust from Google. The smaller screen is ok, the sans headphone jack bit is still Courage the Cowardly Lion level, and the in hand feel of the black model is a poor man's OPO standstone back edition.

    Otherwise, it's the same performance that 99 and Libra have seen. We'll see how this goes. At least I have a better camera and water resistance now on tap, right?

    Gripe about the dongle, bezels and surface finish.

    Stay for the camera.

    I'd also think that the bigger screen would be nice for watching movies on the plane.

    That's pretty to look at, but certainly not pretty to be in.

    It's a pain because it's that slushy looking type snow. If and when it refreezes, it'll be a pain to walk on.

    We'll see. The finger print sensor to swipe down for the notification shade is super sensitive.

    There are things I like and things I don't already. It'll be ongoing.

    I am amused by your analogies xd
    On a non joking note, I'm looking forward to hearing about your experience with it.

    The current devices he's got the $1000 sunk into are VZW devices. And the Pixie dust I'm using is the VZW unlocked model as I'm too broke to afford the international unlocked version.

    @sahib lopez T-Mobile is updating the G5, G6, V20, V30 and V30+ to Oreo soon. Not bad.

    Ooh okay. I didn't know that something changed there. I have used Verizon phones (really the Pixel) on T-Mobile when I was with them. I can't recall it being an issue before so I'm surprised to hear this.
