    FWIW the AMOLED panels on the first gen pixel have as bad of burn in as the Nexus 6. I've owned both. I would not purchase an AMOLED phone with the intention of keeping it 3 years. That screen will look horrid in 3 years. Now an LCD screen? That will age much better.

    I've had a S3, S4, Moto x first gen, motox second gen, Nexus 6, and now a pixel. Except for the Moto x first gen which I broke quickly, the screens on all my phone's have aged poorly with yellowing over time and burn in around the nav bar. I run high brightness all the time so I cause it as quick as anyone I suppose. It's bad on my pixel after only a few months. Google offered to replace it but I have to flash back to stock, depixel8, mail to them, wait two weeks. I just don't have that kind of time right now.

    That's interesting. My S3 screen still looks good. I guess maybe because I didn't use it enough with as high of brightness. That's the only AMOLED screen I've had for that period of time.

    Sometimes I think going on one of those rental programs and trading in every year is the way to go. That, or trying to sell every year. I know it is a little pricier, but my digital graveyard can attest that owning outdated tech doesn't really have all that many benefits. 😂

    This is a white screen video made so that the nav bar is exposed.
    See the difference in brightness at the bottom and the ghost buttons? Name:  IMG_9881.JPG

    Yeah that's nuts. I didn't realize it was such a wide spread problem.

    I don't know that I care really. Seems like we drop or break a phone right about the time the screen gets bad or the battery is trashed.

    Our Nexus 5x phones are still going strong though.
    Just read a review of the pixel 2 camera. Wow. It looks to be as good if not better than the note 8.

    Well, it's been 3 years since a got a new phone. I wound up with something I never anticipated getting - the Essential phone. Got it at Best Buy for $450.

    I had checked out every other phone and was ready to pull the trigger on the Note 8 but decided to look at this given that its less than half the cost of the N8.

    First impressions are very favorable. The build, the size, the weight, and the awesome screen (it really is the best LCD I've seen) with top specs - all positives. Battery life is excellent too.

    I did have to give up a few things like wireless charging and stereo speakers...

    If photography was really important to me then this phone probably wouldn't be for me. Outdoor pictures are great, but low light shots are definitely poor and grainier than my last phone. I don't take many pics though.

    I will give it a week or so and then decide whether to keep it or maybe I will encounter a N8 deal for Black Friday.

    Either way, wow... this is an excellent device...especially given the price, and if the N8 doesn't come down from it's $1000 perch after activation fees and taxes for Black Friday, I could see myself keeping the Essential phone for quite awhile.

    I also like rooting for the underdog...lol
