    If you are going to hammer the Google Pixel 2 for the huge bezels with an old design, you have to include Apple with the Iphone 8 Bezel Blobs.

    Definitely, at least you get whatever you want rather than a half good email client and phone OS.

    To be fair, the regular pixel 2 has way bigger bezels.

    5-7 Week delay for the Pixel 2 in about the worst "blue" I have ever seen!!! I guess beauty is really in the eye of the beholder.

    Google Maps and Hangouts, so that makes 2.

    I just found an ad blocker that also clicks all ads (or optionally only ones not conforming to "do not track" requests) to confuse the tracking. Hilarious. But I don't use it because I'm pretty sure it's considered illegal click fraud.

    How can you come with such a stupid statement? They've learned well from Apple.

    That reminded me of one of the quotes from non-other than Josef Goebbels, German Nazi “Minister of Propaganda and Public Enlightenment”

    Near Toronto
    Telus in Canada is now offering a free Google Home Mini if you pre-order the Pixel 2... tempting deal as I decide what phone to upgrade.

    Remember the Note 8 and S8 allows two separate Bluetooth devices on separate Bluetooth connections...that dual Bluetooth comes in handy.

    Unless you have or can get a great plan with Telus, I would not do it.

    great but it still doesn't really solve the core issue.

    I have no issues and I have a bluetooth mouse, bluetooth keyboard, and bluetooth speaker or bluetooth headphones connected at the same time most of the time all working at the same time seamlessly.

    Yes. Sundar Pinchai is literally Hitler.

    issue isn't multiple bluetooth devices, problem is connecting bluetooth headphones across 5-6 devices. i can do it, but it's a painful process every time. sometimes it's simply telling the transmitting device to connect, other times is forcing the unpair from other devices to connect to a particular device.

    Apple saw this issue and created the W1 chip in the Airpods. any device that you grab, you simply airplay it to airpods and it works every single time. no need to unpair from another device ever.
