That's good going. Mine just arrived today as well. I think if you order early in the week it's usually fast.

I'm glad I got my case and screen protectors a couple of weeks ago, but the screen protector doesn't have a cutout for the front facing camera

I went to claim the headphones but you need to wait 14 days from the order date before claiming.

My spigen screen protector is the same but I'm assuming given its glass this is probably better rather than having a cut our collecting dust/dirt in the corners

The battery life is fantastic. I put my phone on charge this morning for the first time since Mon afternoon. It was at ~25% remaining when I did and I was approaching 8 hrs SOT. (Mostly Reddit, web browsing and Youtube)

As has been heard everywhere the camera is great, a massive step up from my previous OnePlus 3.

I don't game on the phone but performance has been perfect for my normal use case.

I bought a thin hard case from Amazon, the original delivery date was set for the end of the month but it arrived on Monday and the tempered glass screen protector likewise arrived yesterday. I also got myself a couple of wireless charging docks. Never had wireless charging but it's really handy.

Given all the recent news about OnePlus starting to preload apps and install Amazon app via OTA, the dodgy screens and reduced update schedule I'm glad I didn't get the 8/8 pro when it came out.
What screen protector did you get?

I'm loving the phone so far but have to say it's very slippery in the hand. I definitely need a case.

Nowhere near as slippery as my old Pixel 3! I have one of the Google cases and really like it. It has a cloth covering but is quite rigid. Machine washable too apparently. I've always used Spigen clear cases until now, but every one of them has turned yellow after a while so looked for an alternative.

Dark mode or Bright?

I got some days of amazing battery, another day of gone by 9 pm..
I wasn't taking note of what I had enabled/disabled the days it was really good. I know Bluetooth being on will always use more but id prefer to leave it on for smartwatch notifications.
Yes, Bluetooth is enabled 24/7

Battery saving set to kick in at 15% (I stuck it on charge before then so not a factor, but I'm sure it would eek out even longer)

Using dark mode

Strangely the phone came with an older version of Google Photos, easy update to get the new interface and features you might have seen in reviews.

Any of you guys who already received the phone using a Pixel Stand? On the tech specs for the Pixel Stand it says "Up to 10 W charge for Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL" so I'm not sure if it's compatible.

Tried out the astrophotography camera mode this evening... mind blown. Clear sky but city light polution and still captured some amazing shots.

The display is a thing of beauty.

Main gripe so far is the fingerprint sensor is a bit close to the camera lenses. Very conscious about trying not to smudge the lenses.

Mine is fine.

Reminds me of the HTC M7. Absolutely beautiful device, amazing design, but had similar gap issues. I know people that returned multiple devices until they got one they were happy with.
