    Daniel, quick question about the included AKG USB-C headphones. Is it true that they feature active noise canceling? If so, how does it compare to the AKG NC60?

    It shouldn't. The cameras on most high in flagships have gotten so good that it's not that big of a drop off.
    What about indoors (or outoors for that matter) of moving subjects like kids, pets, etc.? All reviews and camera comparisons videos/articles seem to always use stationary subjects when shooting pics. This is where I've personally seen the biggest difference between Samsung's latest phones (Note 9 and S10+) and the Pixel. Samsung phones have blur and often focus on stationary items in the background or foreground whereas with Pixel simply pointing and shooting in almost any scenario yeilds excellent results 99.9% of the times.

    How do you take a screenshot? Still Power/Bixby + down volume? I assume hand gesture wave is still there as well.
    Pull out the S-pen and click screen write. Done.

    That's an awkward and time-consuming method, unless you need to write something on the screen. I haven't received my phone yet, but according to the user manual, power+volume-down still works, as does the palm-swipe gesture, if enabled. There's also a screen-recorder feature.

    I think the noise cancelling AKG headphones were not included from what I can see, they are soon to be released though but at a cost as usual!

    It's not awkward and time consuming, it's been my preferred way of taking screen shots since the note 3. It's quick, easy, and you can share all or just part of the screen in a quick message without saving the image.

    I just tested it; took a screen shot and sent it via text in less than 4 seconds.

    I’ve seen in a couple unboxing videos that there is a clear, rubber case included in the box, but on other videos they don’t show it. Does it come with one?

    I think ones outside the US do - not inside the US.

    I see that you have updated your review with some real world battery results. How does it compare to the S10+?

    Yes, I agree it's a good method if you're doing those other things. But if you just want to take a screenshot, pressing the buttons takes less than one second.

    This is the main thing that has me seriously considering the switch to the Pixel 4. It's also frustrating that, as you point out, reviewers rarely if ever address this. Seems phone reviewers must not have kids (or dogs).

    The problem is, those are very unique situations. Not that they don't happen often, but they are hard to accurately and consistently reproduce for reviews. There are literally 1000s of variables that go into an indoor moving image. They are extremely hard to do well. They sound basic, but they are quite a challenge.

    I imagine if you take enough indoor shots of kids and/or dogs, you can get a decent idea of which handles them better. YankInDaSouth is certainly not the first person on here I've seen suggest Pixels handles such shots better than Samsungs.

    This is something that I will be testing heavily when I first get my Note 10+ ... It led me to return the Note 9 and S10+.

    I love what Galaxy devices have to offer, and admit they have a lot more features to offer than Pixel devices. But my philosophy is this - the pictures I take with a device will be around a lot longer than the device I took it with. So, if picture quality is not what I like, I will not settle regardless of what ever else that device is capable of doing.

    I'll be on the lookout for your feedback. Maybe it'll make a good thread? Or part of a more general camera discussion thread more likely.

    I am not arguing that point... I am just saying that this is why the reviewers don't review that aspect.

    I'm pointing out they certainly could (and should IMO) review that aspect regardless of there being more variables. With a number of people use their phones to take pictures of their kids/animals, it would make sense to review such a feature.

    Quick question about the included AKG USB-C headphones (acting as antenna) for the NextRadio app. Are you able to pick up local FM (not streaming) using the included headphones and that app? I'm assuming FM chip still embedded though haven't seen that validated anywhere.
