    On the one hand it's nice not to have to swipe up to get past the lock screen. On the other hand I keep opening my phone just checking the time.

    It can be annoying if you just want to check the time, but I prefer it to swiping up.

    I keep AOD on and reach/lift to check off to avoid accidental unlocks. Tap screen or power button gets me in so quickly...works great.

    I have always had AoD off to preserve battery and avoid burn in.

    You experienced burn in with AOD? From all my Samsung/Google phones never had that issue with AOD on all the time or noticed significant battery drain to turn it off .

    I have a Garmin watch to check the time which I'm used too using to check the time so I never use my phone to check the time very rare for me.

    No. It's a concern I have though. Mainly I prefer to save the battery. And with the P4XL that seems to be a wise choice.

    Gotcha, your battery life on the pixel 4 xl poor , I'm averaging a day with 5 to 7 hours SOT but with 90hz all the time ?

    Hmm. Well it seems to be a bit better today. Yesterday (first full day with the phone) I found that Gboard was running in the background all day and was the highest consumer of battery. I'll give it a week or so to see how it settles in. To ensure good battery life I have motion sense disabled, 90hz disabled, and AoD disabled.

    I got the phone for the large, notchless display, the cameras, and the immediate updates from Google. The rest is gravy for me.

    Yup straight to Home Screen. Time and notifications are on the AOD screen anyway so no need to add an extra step. I also hide notifications details so I'd rather interact with them from the home screen instead of the lock screen.

    I too am a little concerned with burn-in on phones that have AOD. But if your brightness is on Automatic/is not up too high, then that's an easy way to avoid it. I also put my phones facedown quite often and overnight. Not sure if that does anything but it helps me feel better!

    Never tried face unlock earlier. Now with all important apps in secure folder gave it a shot. Pretty good. I disabled faster unlock which reduces security and enabled the option to verify eyes are open.

    Straight to the home screen. The unintentional unlocks are annoying but the convenience of the intentional ones outweighs them.

    That sounds Samsung to me... "secure folder" ... "faster unlock"... It's making me think Samsung.

    I wouldn't. Sometimes just want to check a notification and don't want to unlock the phone.

    AOD is usually not bright enough and some devices move the AOD around to prevent burn in.

    Right! I kind of spaced about those things. I just think what I do is more of a superstitious thing than a real methodology. 🤣
