    I only have one phone so here's my question, is it advisable to opt in on the beta? I've never tried beta versions out and have always been patient for final release versions but I'm really eager to play with the new features. Is there any likelihood that a beta can brick your phone? Even if the possibility is really small?

    Right, I already have it activated but I don't see any change to the screen or anything else.
    What is it suppose to do?

    Nevermind. I figured it out. I had to turn off swipe for notifications off first.
    It actually brings the screen down to about half it's height.

    Oh I have no problems with glitches or having to factory reset, my concern is if any glitch can actually just render the device useless. Safety first I suppose! '

    I almost got the deal for a Pixel 3 for $159.99 (New) to use as a backup device or play with betas but considering it will not be supported with major versions of Android after this year I didn't think it was worth buying. I take it even future beta versions wouldn't be possible to load on it (without messing with custom roms).

    That is a good price for a pixel 3 but it will be end of life after this update.

    I have 2 phones so I am running the beta. Although it is unlikely to brick the phone it has to be a risk you would be prepared to take. Although I did take the risk on my pixel 2xl. It was a huge risk and there were some major bugs.

    It can also affect battery life.

    Think about it really hard if you only have one device. This beta is pretty stable so far but I have found some bugs.

    I like living on the edge and installed this on my only phone. So far no need for a parachute.

    Thanks. The deal is actually still active on Woot. Both for the 3 and 3Xl brand new but it's the end of the road for these two devices this year as far as updates go. I'll pass.

    Looking forward to reading everyone's comments as the betas progress. I'll hold off on the temptation to opt in.

    I've had good experiences with Woot. If there's a problem, they're very good about returns. Just keep in mind if the item your ordering is listed as New, Refurbished, or Scratch & Dent, so that you know what to expect.

    Awesome but even then I don't think it would be worth buying if I can't use it to tinker with future OS or beta updates. Though it could serve as a nice music device. I'll have to think on it. For anyone that doesn't care about OS updates it's definitely a good deal.

    Anyway I won't keep derailing the thread!
