    I installed Q on my phone and so far it's pretty slick. I tried the "fully gestural navigation" and while I like the concept it is kind of buggy. Especially with the picture in picture pop outs for maps and YouTube. I never really liked the hybrid of pie with the pill. So I am currently using 3 button nav. I read that in the GA Google plans to support fully gestural and 3 button. What is everyone's preferred navigation at this point

    The new full gestures is nice but it doesn't play well with third party launchers at the moment. It also has a few bugs, when using the 3 button nav it feels snappier and more responsive so I am still debating what I like more, lol

    Honestly, Pixel launcher with gesture UI works perfectly for me.

    I like the concept, But until the stock launcher has more customization options I'm stuck on 2 button through Nova Launcher. Hopefully they can continue to improve both the launcher and implementation of full gestural navigation.

    So far the pop out picture in picture has been really buggy. I've also had some issues while watching YouTube (in landscape) where I try to swipe up to go home and it just brings up more videos to watch.

    I haven't had issues so much with picture picture mode. I've had issues a little been trying to get into overview multitasking mode. That's really weird.

    I prefer the buttons over gesture. If I'm forced to, I'll get used to it.

    The only concern I have with the buttons is burn in but I mean it's no more of an issue than the status bar

    The gestures is cool. Not just because that's where every smart manufacturer is going, but it makes the experience with the whole operating system smoother in my opinion. as long as every feature of the operating system works. I have no issues with it. It's just getting your muscle memory used to everything.

    Once the bugs are worked out with picture in picture I think it'll be great. Even more content can appear on the screen. Until then I will stick with the 3 buttons

    Gestures all the way! BlackBerry did this with BB10 OS since the launch in 2013.. So for Android and iOS to play catch up is nice to see

    So far I've liked the gestures on the OnePlus 6T best, but Samsung's full-screen gestures that still use the same Back Home recents is a nice compromise.

    This is where I'm having issues, as well (on an OG Pixel XL). But overall I like it a lot, given that I come to smartphones from a Palm Pre perspective. Now if I could only get the search bar to say, "Make it so."

    Yeah I mean I understand that the gestures aren't going to be for everyone but it's a nice way to interact with the operating system over all though.

    Honestly, after beta 4 was released, I tried to go back to the old pill method, but it doesn't feel normal / natural to my fingers anymore.

    I've only been on the beta for a little while, so I think the pill would still come naturally to me, but I'm happier with full gestures.

    I'm running full gestures although navigation is a bit harder for me to adjust vs the 9.0 pill navigation

    I definitely prefer the 2 button system. I mean, I've adapted to the full gestures with little difficulty, but I used the suggested apps a lot and the two button is a more intuitive UI, IMO.

    I like buttons.... they're clean, simple, precise, and do exactly what you expect them to do every time you touch them in every app.

    Full gestures. My other phone is the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and the gestures are identical (just a little slower and less smooth on the P3xl) so I've had plenty time to adjust to them. The animations need a little work and cleaning up especially the Home gesture but other than that it's ace.
