    Just saw this over on Android Authority. I've used the Pie Betas and I'm not a fan of google's gestures because, well it sucks and it doesn't save any space so I don't see the point. So if this is the case, heck IDK maybe I'll just get a Note 9 instead and call it a year. I hate change for the sake of change, and that's what this feels like.

    I don't mind it. Been using it on beta just fine.

    It would take some insane change for me to change an entire phone. This is a small thing for me.

    I might skip out on the pixel 3 , not impressed with what I've seen . Better off with my pixel 2 xl . And I'm with you on the gestures it just takes away from good experience on the phone when it's half baked .

    You mean change manufacturers? See I think its a big thing, the way I interact with the phone is a big deal to me when it is intuitive. I have used all the betas to and I just could not get used to it.

    Well the pill sits right where the buttons are anyway so I don't see how it is any better. Personally I can switch apps way faster just double tapping the square.

    See I really want the 3 for the bigger screen than my 2 has. But IDK about this. I don't like it being forced on me.

    Correct. Things won't ever stay the same. Things will change and while I have to re-learn muscle memory wise it takes a few days at most for me. After that it is normal. I don't try and resist change -- I may not always agree but it would take a ton to force me to swap a phone due to a UI change.

    Did you know that you can swipe to the right anywhere on the Navigation bar and it will switch between the last two apps just like double tapping the square.

    You don't have to swipe from the pill, you can swipe from the far left and don't even have to go over to the pill. That way there is no chance of accidentally activating assistant.

    Yeah I did, and its not better. Its just different to be different and I have to actually move my thumb more to use it. I find it more difficult to use one handed.

    I'm planning on skipping the 3 and seeing what the 4 will be like. The three looks cool but I don't think it's worth of an upgrade when I just got the 2 and its specs are still great.

    While the specs are great and I've only had mine for six months myself I want the bigger screen but if they are going to force this gesture BS on me I may have to rethink things even on my 2 and go another direction.

    I actually like the gestures. Took me about 5 mins to get used to it but I always liked navbar gestures in custom ROMs. Taking up screen sapce isn't an issue since I enable immersive mode.

    This is "confirmed". I'm pretty happy that they are committing, that means they'll fix it.

    At the beginning of the beta I wasn't that thrilled with the Pixel gesture navigation but now actually got used to it and probably prefer it a bit over the original navigation.

    I'm just not a fan of the big notch on the 3. I hate it on my iPhone X and I'll hate it on the 3XL.

    The iPhone X notch is too big , I think the pixel 3 will be ok.... looks same as my 1+6 which is not bad . Ideally I like essential notch

    From what I've seen and if it looks like the size of the cut out that you can simulate in the developer options then it's definitely bigger than the iPhone X. But regardless I'm just not a fan of any notch.

    I didn't even know you can simulate it through developers option, just checked it out . No it won't be like that at all
