    So I'm curious what everyone is using. Coming from a Pixel 2 and trying to use google's gestures on that I just could not get the flow of them. OP's gestures are way better but I still find after a couple weeks they aren't completely second nature. I also keep going back to the buttons because honestly they are still quicker to me. The swipe up and hold works but it takes longer to get into recent apps. Plus I'm having a hard time typing on this thing and holding it trying to stretch from top to bottom so the button navigation moves the keyboard up making it a little easier to use.

    Let me know what you guys are using and how you are liking it.

    I'm using the gestures. I think they are done very well and I love how I have all my screen back. I had the Pixel 3 XL and the stock gestures imo kinda suck compared to Oneplus. Keep using them and they'll be second nature soon enough.

    Gestures from day one. I didn't even try the others. It's so quick and easy and reminds me of the Palm Pre days. I miss those.

    Back and Home.

    Can not stand OnePlus Gestures. And you lose the quick toggle back and forth between most recent 2 apps that way. You will also miss the long press for assistant or any other function you like on the long press.

    1+ made small tweaks to Back, Home style navigation that makes it much much better than the one on pixel devices. I love it and that's what I am using. Buttons or gestures?  Which are you using?-screenshot_20181212-145152__01.jpeg

    I used gestures as well, but you can't use the accessability button with gestures. Need the navigation bar in order to use.

    Gestures. I think they're very well done. I do sometimes have issue with the swipe from bottom to go back. If there's information on the bottom of the screen it's very easy to touch that while trying to swipe up to go back.

    OP should make this a poll. It'd be cool to see how that plays out.

    Yeah I tried that last night, have it open on the computer right now and cannot find a poll option. Seems weird.

    How faster since you lose the ability to quickly flip between the 2 most reason apps?

    There is this new gesture with which you can . Drag up from bottom to the middle and then right, its way faster than double tap

    I'm using my pixel 2xl at the moment. Didn't realize switching between the most recent app quickly is an option on the 1+ gestures. I have to try that tonight.

    No you don't. It's just a swipe. Literally just swing my thumb up from the bottom to the right real quick.
