    I thought you were a big iOS person. When did you decide to get a Pixel?

    I've been on iOS for about 18 months straight but in year's past, I've been a habitual platform switcher. At present, I'm at a point where I'm going to do what mumfoau wants to do and pull away from my iPhone wielding loved ones lol

    Glad to see you back . I definitely don't hate Apple but me being on an iPhone would most likely mean I would be doing it for others as well.. for things like iMessage and such. I have been dealing just fine without it and the only true thing I miss is the ease of using FaceTime with family. Luckily the gf has an iPhone and we have an iPad in the house (hers).

    One day if I ever get a tablet it would most likely be an iPad... but for now I can't bring myself to purchase a tablet for my own use. I don't think I would use it enough.

    I received my 8.1 OTA update shortly after midnight EDT yesterday Dec 6. I don't install beta software. The new Visual Core chip has been enabled. Google says that camera HDR+ processing is 5 times faster and it's definitely noticeable!

    I thought hitting the update button was supposed to pull down the update regardless if you were qued up for it or not? ohh Google, they can't get out of their own way sometimes.

    My wife, my parents, and most siblings/siblings-in-law have iPhones so in the past I stuck around for that. Then we had a child and I convinced myself that I needed to stay for FaceTime. Well, I've switched and I've had my wife download Google Duo and haven't had any issues. Quality has been spot on and all.

    Now, that's not to say I'll never use an iPhone again but right now I'm not. My plan is to gift my iPhone X and Apple Watch Series 3 to my wife for Christmas.

    It just goes back to C:user my name I can't get it to recognize ADB or CDM
    The problem is my PC's not seeing the phone if I turn off developer mode will give me a prompt for what I want to do photos files data

    Are you in the platform-tools folder, if not...

    Hold down shift and right click in the platform-tools folder and choose CMD(Powershell) from the popup menu.

    But if you had opened the powershell window from inside the platform-tools folder, then you wouldn't just be seeing "C: username" at the command prompt; "platform-tools" would be the last term before the command prompt.

    Or are you getting a red error message after trying to enter a command?

    Yes I get a read error after I try to enter a command.
    I'm sure I got to be missing something really basic here.
    Thank you.....

    Did you do this...

    Plug your device into your computer and click "OK" on the dialog box asking you to Allow USB debugging while connected to the computer. You can also select to always allow access on that computer

    I rolled back because Android Auto connection was acting up and not always triggering....then I got tired of waiting which doesn't normally happen to me.

    Just rebooted the phone, for a non-update related reason. After it restarted, it prompted that the 8.1 update was available to me. Updating now.
    Pixel 2 XL on Verizon.
