    I'm glad that we are moving a step ahead in adaptive brightness control. Moving from Indoors to Outdoor, the brightness control works on pretty much any device without issues. But it annoys me to no extent when I am indoors and it keeps changing the brightness because the ceiling light bothers the phone. I won't be using adaptive brightness control till they have this thing right.

    I hope pixel 3 xl won't have any notch....i think having a 2017ish bezel is still a lot better than having the ugly notch.

    I've been really enjoying his videos.
    This dude is very informative without alot of talks before and after The Point.
    Lots of tech youtubers have gotten too confident in themselves that they'll spend 80% of vid talking about personal things I did not click on video to hear. He'll stay formal, give us the news, than peace out. Really appreciate that, love it.

    Great video, and nice observation at the end.
    What's the point if less than 1% of the Android user base is gonna get those nice things in the first year? They really need do solve the fragmentation issue ASAP.
