    Best way to add wireless charging to pixel 4 xl?

    I got a new charger dock off amazon that works fine. Still trying to return the charging pad, I may have to dispute payment since the company won't answer. The cheaper pad is verified to work with my phone, so I will just get that one, or go back to wired charging in the dock that came with...

    Best way to add wireless charging to pixel 4 xl?

    I don't think my wife's 2018 xc60 had wireless charging, Maybe the next trim level up had it. She got the car trim, but added the T6 hud 360 camera etc. Tesla does not have Android auto yet, they could add it I guess, but we're both prefer the Tesla system to her Android auto anyways. First I...

    Pixel 4 thread for actual owners only

    You can always turn off gesture navigation. I'm not sure I'm a fan of it myself. I prefer the finger print scanner to face id for sure. My biggest complaint is that the wireless charging is too picky.

    Best way to add wireless charging to pixel 4 xl?

    Is it though? I tried a couple more chargers and had the same issue. Finally I found a belkin charger that works just fine. I would like to be able to charge it in my car though, that's the one use case where I really want wireless charging to work. Anywhere else it's more of a novelty.

    Best way to add wireless charging to pixel 4 xl?

    There are others for $50 and $100, but the $50 might not be as good and the other $100+ one does not have the ability to charge a wired phone or do landscape charging. I plugged in a power bank to the wireless charger, and while it did not jump up to 10 watt+ charging, it also didn't shut...

    Best way to add wireless charging to pixel 4 xl?

    https://support.google.com/pixelphone/thread/17602276?hl=en I spent an hour in the phone with support only to tell them I need to do a factory reset on a great phone that I just spent 3 hours setting up. I'm thinking to return both my $120 charging pad and my phone at yours point. This is the...

    Best way to add wireless charging to pixel 4 xl?

    I want to add wireless charging to my pixel 4xl since the factory wireless charging does not work right. What is the best way to do this. I can't just buy a pixel stand to make it work right because I want to use the wireless charging pad in my car. Thanks!

    I freaking hate USB type C connectors.

    Yea, it was a port that went bad on my original pixel 2XL. The headphone adapter wouldn't work.

    I freaking hate USB type C connectors.

    My port is just worn out, probably from plugging USB-C cables in and out of it. They all fit lose, so sometimes I'll plug it in and it will start charging, but by the time I set it down the cable has partially come unplug and the phone won't charge. Wow I removed the pocket lint and it's...

    I freaking hate USB type C connectors.

    My Pixel 2XL is getting picky about which cable I plug it into. It was also refurb because my first one developed a usb-c issue where the headphone adapter would not work.

    Don't you lose some of the It's super easy to root a Google pixel phone Thats true, since I usually don't need FLAC while camping etc. I guess I'm too old school for modern tech, I like to just drag and drop my music over, rather than flip through all the different streaming media apps. I...

    Who else annoyed with Apple obsoleting your device?

    Sounds like it would work well for my dad then. For me I have lots of ripped mp3s I copy to my phone that I use while camping and at work. Lots of areas still have no coverage or poor signal so cloud playback is nice but not good enough for many circumstances. I just open explorer and copy...

    Not sure I believe this, do you have a source? Limiting draw is called throttling and keep things from getting too hot. However throttling reduces performance. It's an issue with Macs because they don't have active cooling.

    Not sure I believe this, do you have a source? Partially charging won't hurt lithium batteries either.

    Who else annoyed with Apple obsoleting your device?

    Yes the longer at 100% the harder it is on the battery, but charging to under 100% is even better. That's a great feature to have on the iPhone though.

    Who else annoyed with Apple obsoleting your device?

    When your taking about batteries are you just referring to the phones? Friend is asking how to limit laptop charging level to 80% to preserve his battery on his laptop like I do with my Lenovo (although the laptop battery can be replaced at home, I like my stuff to last). Do the phones let you...

    I dunno people at work were frustrated by this and bought new iPhones. I'm still getting updates for my pixel 2xl and it's been over 2 years.. Are iphone batteries really that much more advanced than Android batteries? The new iPhone looks great but I don't want to get involved in that...

    Yea great... So maybe wednesday? I ordered 2 weeks ago. Ridiculous. Delivery guy almost left it... Almost, then he scanned it and picked it back up and put it in the car. Came home 2 hours later. Why would they expect me to be home waiting for it if they told me no Saturday deliveries and...

    Yea mine did too unfortunately.... After they delayed delivery to Monday they decided to stop by for delivery on Saturday (I was out because I wasn't expecting a package. So no phone for me). Now it is delayed until Tuesday. So now I'm supposed to stay home and lose a day's pay because they...

    pixel 4xl $200 off google or $400 off verizon?

    I don't think I'm going to but i decided to order it from Google instead anyway (apparently my order didn't go through the other day). I just don't want to deal with payments over two years, carrier locked, extra apps on my phone. Plus I think Google protection plan is better / easier to use...

    pixel 4xl $200 off google or $400 off verizon?

    I just ordered the pixel 4xl for $200 off at the google store, and then well, added $150 back on for the protection plan. I have been pretty happy with google service when ordering directly through them. But I see you can also get the carrier locked version of the phone for $400 off but you...

    Pixel 4 or OnePlus 7 Pro?

    pixels never have the best hardware, but they have been good phones for me. Or maybe you mean something else? I don't like that it does not have a fingerprint reader, but I do like that it has flat glass. I certainly don't want to downgrade my camera.

    Pixel 4 or OnePlus 7 Pro?

    I was just thinking about the wife and getting two phones instead of one with my phone budget. I'm leaning towards the One plus 7 pro right now. two phones for $1100, or one pixel 4xl for 1000(800 on Black Friday?).

    Pixel 4 or OnePlus 7 Pro?

    I'm torn between the pixel 4xl and the one plus 7T pro. Pixel 4XL 128gb is $1000 I can get two one plus 7T pro's for myself and my wife for the same price.... The One Plus 7T Pro is the same thing as the One Plus 7 pro? I'm pretty sure I will be more happy with the pixel4xl though. I really...

    Pixel 4

    I'm considering the pixel 4xl, but I'm very disappointed with the lack of free photo backup and the lack of the fingerprint scanner. Should I get the One plus 7 pro instead? Currently I have a pixel 2xl and my wife wants it (she has the Nexus 6p)

    Nvidia 5.1 output bug?

    Laptop is X1 Extreme with 4k screen and 1050ti I just found out that I can't plugin my laptop to my 4k TV to both stream video and have 5.1 surround. Nvidia says this is because my TV EIDI reports it is only stereo, but other devices like my xbox can do both 4k and 5.1 without any issues...
