    [–] [Update: Statement from Google] Déjà vu: Pixel 3 and 3 XL video recordings have poor audio Daveed84 29 points ago in Android

    People in that sub aren't defending Google on this one, for the most part.

    No idea why the original thread was removed, but there's a new one up, and almost everyone that commented in it is unhappy with Google's response.

    [–] Pixel 3 Isn't Actually Scratching (Scratch Test) Daveed84 1 points ago in GooglePixel

    Well I mean, I try not to be a jerk about it, I genuinely do want to be helpful... Sometimes people aren't always receptive to it, and that's OK. I figure if I've annoyed them, they're more likely to remember the right way the next time, and that means I've helped them out. And that makes it all worth it IMO

    And actually, sometimes I'll check back to see if they've fixed it, and if they have, I'll delete my comment. That way no one ever has to know that they made a mistake

    [–] Pixel 3 Isn't Actually Scratching (Scratch Test) Daveed84 3 points ago in GooglePixel

    No, but if he goes around correcting people when they use the wrong form of it's/its then we're at least kindred spirits

    It's = it is, it has

    Its = possessive form

    [–] You can’t unlock Pixel 3 by saying ‘Ok Google’ (x-post from r/GooglePixel) Daveed84 9 points ago in Android

    It's explained in the article in the crosspost link, you gotta read more than just the headline and comments

    [–] ANTHEM OF THE PEACEFUL ARMY IS OFFICIALLY OUT!!! Daveed84 1 points ago in gretavanfleet

    It's been the most talked about aspect of this band since they formed, they are clearly very strongly influenced by Led Zeppelin, almost to the point where they're indistinguishable from each other to the untrained ear

    This is like saying Adam Lambert looks nothing like Dave Navarro, or Logan Marshall-Green looks nothing like Tom Hardy, you'd have to be out of your mind to not see the resemblance

    [–] [MKBHD] Google Pixel 3 XL Review: The Shadow of the Notch! Daveed84 7 points ago * (lasted edited a day ago) in Android

    I did watch the video and I know that he said that, I just wanted to make sure it was known that it wasn't just a matter of apps randomly closing in the background... He mentioned a very specific scenario with the camera and music playback together

    I wasn't disagreeing with you or saying you were wrong btw, I was just trying to offer additional info

    [–] ANTHEM OF THE PEACEFUL ARMY IS OFFICIALLY OUT!!! Daveed84 1 points ago in gretavanfleet

    The songs themselves are great, but the production on the album is truly something else IMO. I especially love the acoustic guitars on songs like You're The One and The New Day, great mixing job by the engineers. And the drums sound amazing across the entire album

    [–] [MKBHD] Google Pixel 3 XL Review: The Shadow of the Notch! Daveed84 25 points ago in Android

    Specifically, he said that sometimes music playing in the background will stop when he opens the camera app, and wasn't sure if it was a bug or related to lack of RAM

    [–] Just got an email from Best Buy saying I can pick up the game today (?) Daveed84 6 points ago in reddeadredemption

    You are 100% wasting your time, this was definitely a glitch and the people at the store aren't gonna break street date just because you got an erroneous email

    [–] *concern* Daveed84 1 points ago in youseeingthisshit

    If you're talking about the monster from the book and movie, that's a proper noun and it'd get the apostrophe. Sorry, didn't realize you were making a joke :P

    [–] Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL factory images now up Daveed84 4 points ago in Android

    To be fair, you've been setting up a bunch of things and you're probably using it more than usual (because it's new and exciting), so give it a few days at least to see if things improve

    [–] *concern* Daveed84 2 points ago in youseeingthisshit

    Don't let autocorrect push you around like that, show that thing who's boss ;)

    [–] *concern* Daveed84 5 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago) in youseeingthisshit

    Nouns and proper nouns get the apostrophe, possessive pronouns and determiners don't

    The car's door

    Bob's hat

    Its name

    it's = it is, it has

    its = possessive form

    [–] The Return of the Obra Dinn - Review Thread Daveed84 16 points ago in Games

    I think there's actually a template or even a Chrome extension floating around that allows anyone to submit these review threads with the proper formatting, which is why they all look the same... Just wish I could find it...

    EDIT: Found it, you go to any game page with reviews on OpenCritic and click "Export", then click "reddit", it'll have everything generated for you automatically

    [–] Muffled sound from speakers of 3XL Daveed84 3 points ago in GooglePixel

    My regular Pixel 3 sounds muffled at all volumes, the Pixel 2 speakers have much more clarity... But the speakers do get pretty loud at least

    [–] Pixel 3 Speaker test at Best Buy Daveed84 1 points ago in GooglePixel

    Just got my Pixel 3 (regular size), I'll say that it's very noticeable at most volume levels, especially on the back. But when holding it by the side rails it's not as noticeable
