How do you like the new intro? This is an overview of the battery life while using my Google Pixel 2 daily on T-Mobile LTE all day, and Wi-Fi when at home in the evening. My day consists of Spotify, Reddit, Duo, and Chrome. I keep location on but location history off, with brightness at around 40%. Let me know what you think in the comments below. I do not play any games which is probably why it lasts so well for me. Coming from a Pixel XL, this phone holds up just as well.
This in depth video and image comparison really surprised me. I reveal at the end which one is the Google Pixel 2 and which one is the Apple iPhone 8. They were both set to record in 4k30 (Non HEVC) for equal comparison, and their image modes were on default settings.
It is a little hard to perfectly align them as the Pixel 2 uses EIS which crops the image and prevents small movements while the iPhone 8 uses OIS allowing for more to fit in the frame when compared to the Pixel 2.

A while back Google integrated text messaging with Hangouts, and then tried to make the application smooth but only made it worse. This in turn made it incredibly horrible for sending quick text messages and switching between multiple conversations was a slow process. Sometimes I would even miss text messages only due to the transition lag when switching between conversations.
Alas, Messenger is born.
A smooth, quick, and good looking SMS/MMS application with material design was just released by Google. This is the stock messaging application on Lollipop, but it is also available for download on any device with Android 4.1 or above. The search feature as shown below is very smooth and animated very well. Switching between conversations is very smooth and quick. Sending text messages is a light breeze and no longer feels like a heavy chore. MMS messages now notify when their download process begins and they are displayed in a much nicer format. Overall this app was well needed and finally I cant text without being disgusted.
