    Well. I did it. Back on #teamPixel. Pixel 5 in green. So far I like the size of it. Not a fingerprint magnet. Definitely need to get a case though, as it is slippery. I had the Google one on the P4XL, which I liked a lot. So I will get a similar one for the 5.

    Note 10 will be put away as a back up device.
    Congrats

    You mean the fabric case? Was that good on the 4 XL? I'm considering it for mine. Worried it's slippery.

    It is not a downgrade but the screen will feel small coming from the Note. I love my Pixel 5 but for my ageing eyes the screen does feel a little cramped and as I rarely go out these days the benefits of the compact form factor are not as important.

    I just wish they did a plus/XL version with 256gb of storage and then it would be my only droid for sure.

    I found that the case gave the phone better grip being fabric. It was very light weight, didn't add any bulkiness like some cases do. I bought the grey one. By the time I was done it was no longer grey lol.

    It is also compatible with the Pixel stand, which should be a given, since the case is made by Google.

    The screen size is the biggest adjustment so far. It reminds so much of the earlier iPhones. Except better. Obviously.
    I usually don't have a lot of content on my devices, so storage has never been an issue for me. But, I agree it would have been nice if there was 5XL version. Oh well, such is life.

    Just speaking to transferring files, have you tried nearby share? I transfer videos back and forth from my tab s7+ and pixel 4xl quite a bit and have never had a problem.

    For the past few years I have been switching back and forth between the Note series and the Pixel series. The S-pen is what draws me to the note, but I very rarely use. Now that I have a Galaxy Tab A with a pen, it makes the Note 10+ a bit redundant. What draws me to the Pixel is The 'Now Playing' feature. It is just an impressive piece of technology. I love seeing what song is playing on the lock screen. I have Shazam, but it just isn't the same. The other main feature that I miss is the digital photo frame as I have the Pixel charging stand at work. However, with the not so positive press the P5 has been receiving I don't know if it would actually be worth it this time.

    My wife uses a Samsung, so this is another point of contention. Naturally, transferring data to her phone isn't as smooth of a process with Pixel phones. Mainly videos. For example I would record my daughter's dance recital on my Pixel, but it would never transfer over to my wife's S10. If there are work arounds with this I am all ears. I have tried Android beam through NFC, but the Pixel would not recognize the S10.

    Good question. I have the Note 20 Ultra and the Pixel 5. I was drawn to the Note because of the specs and bling (pretty glass and metal). On the go with day to day activities, found myself reaching for the Pixel 5 more and more. Wouldn't call it a down grade because they have serve two different markets.

    Note Ultra = Cadillac Escalade ESV
    Pixel 5 = Ford F150 (it's a work horse)
