kalel, 03 Oct 2018Yes once the beta is ready then the final release is mere days awayWrong again. Releases like 12.X take more than one month.
Minor releases like 12.0.Y can take days.
YalokIy, 03 Oct 2018Fixed in beta 12.1. Do you consider that fixed in stable version? Yes once the beta is ready then the final release is mere days away

Got every Samsung Phone until S8 and every Sony until XZ1 (XZ1 was last bought), and every Apple until SE (SE 128gb bought) and the all new versions are really main eye candy, but very few optionality, in my opinion.
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2018Beta software, never buy stockNowadays all- ios or android new versions are really betas for consumers to decide the bugs with mainlly appereance tweaks, in my opinnion.

Apple already have the fixes out there, in such short period of time. How long does it take Google to fix the Pixel charging issue? That's the problem with Android. Slow response time not only from 3rd party phone makers, but also Google itself.

So trolling is just for haters. Likewise with pixel and the new iphones the issues are minor and get fixed pretty quick

My comment was simply in response to people saying "durr hurr hurr take that Android," which is a crappy attitude. I'd be just as critical of people doing the same thing about iPhone. They pretty much all have issues at launch. The only thing I find hilarious is when people/companies praise their device as the Second Coming. They're tools, not religions. LOL

And the phone does still charges. Also the pixel at launch was priced very high. Don't forget the multiple issues with the pixel 2 when it was released last year. Samsung s8,s9,note 9 all dealt with issues at launch too. So yes all these expensive devices had issues too.

The USBA to USBC cable plugged into a laptop charges the device same as it has since Pie was installed. It says just "charging" with that one. The original one that came with it (w/9V rail) works if I turn the phone off then plug it in, wait for the charge symbol, then turn it on and it will charge. Just plug it in with it on and it doesn't recognize it. I have a Verizon wall charger too and using that method last weekend it tried to charge, I got about 10% in it and it quit. My Asus flip S charger has a 9V rail at 3A and it used to work fine, charged rapidly, etc. Now it is not recognized at all even with the phone off. This really sucks.
I had the charging issues but I also had all of the connection choices when connected to a computer were greyed out. I was in the middle of testing 4K streaming using my unlimited ATT plan at work. I sent it to IbreakUfixit, google's 3rd party repair service to fix it and paid ~$100 after they changed the daughter board/port. They said it was fixed. Not. I found I could get the tether option in the greyed out list to still work by going to Hotspot/Tethering section though. Still no connectivity for file transfer. I tried the Bluetooth transfer and that worked but you need a tutorial in front of you to do it a second time. They said they would roll back the SW for free but being without my phone was too painful. Now I see this update, we'll see. It is installing.
I wonder if they'll fix the charging cable/charging issues for the Pixel 2 XL (maybe also 2 but didn't hear of that) just before the Pixel 4 announcement too... that's a shame from Google's end that it took them so long without giving any explanation to their users whatsoever.
YalokIy, 02 Oct 2018There is big difference between charging slowly and not charging at all.Indeed, and on top of it, this is a two year old phone which cost 1/3rd less at launch than the iPhone XS models do (today you can get it for like 1/4 the price of an iPhone XS/Max). As well, even with the Pixels charging slowly, they're still charging at the same speed as the iPhone do today since apple doesn't include a fast charger in the box. LOL
kalel, 02 Oct 2018Comment section very quiet here compared to the iPhone xs max battery article which is filled ... moreExcept at least the Pixel phones could charge, just not fast charge. With the iPhone XS/XS Max people had plugged in their phones, only to come back and discover it hadn't charged. This is more of an annoyance for Pixel users, and even with them charging slowly, they were still charging at the same rate as the iPhone XS/XS Max do at full speed, because Apple doesn't include a fast charger. LOL
Comment section very quiet here compared to the iPhone xs max battery article which is filled with hate comments. Comments such as how could this happen to an expensive device!!!
While ignoring their own favourite brands will have their own issues. It's too funny :D
