    Google Pixel 2 Second Impression

    I have been using the Google Pixel 2 for about two weeks and so far, so good when it comes to using the phone. I really enjoy the Google Pixel 2 and how well it works. I am really getting into using the Android interface which has been kind of different being a die-hard iPhone user for several years. The main thing that has been a hard thing get used to is the idea of having a back button being an Apple user you are used to having the button in the top left-hand side and not always having it depending on what you were doing with on your iPhone. The Google Pixel 2 using Android you can always go back to whatever you are doing because there is always a back button its standard button always available The other interesting button I am enjoying on the Google Pixel 2 is the task manager button you hit and can close unwanted windows from there. I came from the Apple iPhone world where you need to double tap the home button for that kind of thing. One thing that’s been different is using the pull-down bar from the top on Google Pixel 2 which is more convenient than having to get out of the app your using go into Apple settings app make a settings change then go back into your app. Apple has kind of addressed this issue with the new launcher in iOS 11 from the bottom to a certain point I still say they need some work in this area compared to Android and the Google Pixel 2. The Google Play store updates have been nice I come for again the Apple world where you need to ok all app updates. With the Google Play store, they automatically...

    Google Pixel 2 First Impression

    I have been a die-hard Apple user for over 10 years. I need a phone on both platforms (iOS and Android) for work reasons. I decided to purchase a Google Pixel 2 not the XL just the regular Pixel 2. I went with the Google Pixel 2 because the appeal of how Google is designing and handling the Pixel 2. Unlike Samsung, Nokia and Motorola Google is doing business the way Apple does things they are designing both the hardware and software which to me is a big deal as that is what has always appealed to me about Apple. Moving From iOS To Android Unlink other Android manufacturers the Googles Pixel 2 makes breaking up the iPhone very easy walking you through turning off iMessage and providing an adapter for the iPhone and a build in a wizard to move your apps, photos, videos, contacts, and messages over in a few minutes. This very much impressed me as my previous try at moving to a Samsung Phone was not a huge success. Security and Location The next thing that really impressed me about the Pixel was the fingerprint sensor it was so much more conveniently located behind the phone then using your thumb on the iPhone home button I think anyway. As I was playing with Android I noticed that the Pixel 2 has a software-based home button very much like the iPhone there is also a back button and square button for app management the equivalent of Apple home button double tap which is very Apple-like in design. Dongles Are In This Year Just like iPhone 7 and newer, there is no headphone jack and you need to use an adapter to listen to music. So again, no charging and listening without wireless headphones which is fine for...
