With the 3 button setup, you can swipe up from anywhere to get to the drawer. I've gotten into the habit of swiping up from the middle of the screen rather than from bottom. It's one swipe up to get to recents then another to get to drawer or one long swipe to get to the drawer. I don't go into my recents all that often
my swipe up on home button is set to off. about recents etc., i still don't follow on your swipe though - like you i swipe up from anywhere and i see a few recents at top and the rest of the drawer below. no issue.

If you set it to on, a short swipe will bring up recent apps (replacing the square on the right) and give you the 2 button setup. I don't like the 2 button setup

My Note 8 (AT&T) got updated literally this morning, with the April security updates. Given the HW similarity, I'd expect S9+ to be pretty close.

"RED claims that the Hydrogen One will stand out from other premium smartphones with its 5.7-inch “holographic display”, which will use RED’s new 4-View video format to display a 3D effect without the need for glasses."

The RED Hydrogen One is coming to AT&T and Verizon this summer

In the low cost market:

https://techcrunch.com/2018/05/24/so...ware-built-in/

Avast has found that many low-cost, non-Google-certifed Android phones shipped with a strain of malware built in that could send users to download apps they didn’t intend to access. The malware, called called Cosiloon, overlays advertisements over the operating system in order to promote apps or even trick users into downloading apps. Devices effected shipped from ZTE, Archos and myPhone.

The app consists of a dropper and a payload. “The dropper is a small application with no obfuscation, located on the /system partition of affected devices. The app is completely passive, only visible to the user in the list of system applications under ‘settings.’ We have seen the dropper with two different names, ‘CrashService’ and ‘ImeMess,'” wrote Avast. The dropper then connects with a website to grab the payloads that the hackers wish to install on the phone. “The XML manifest contains information about what to download, which services to start and contains a whitelist programmed to potentially exclude specific countries and devices from infection. However, we’ve never seen the country whitelist used, and just a few devices were whitelisted in early versions. Currently, no countries or devices are whitelisted. The entire Cosiloon URL is hardcoded in the APK.”

The Vivo Apex has them all answered. All screen. No notch. THIS is what I call true innovation.
https://www.cnet.com/news/vivo-apex-...comes-june-12/

Look ma, no notch!


Vivo Apex's selfie camera pops up whenever it's called for by the apps and automatically retracts when it's no longer needed


The Vivo Apex comes with not one, but TWO fingerprint sensors, in the screen!


Or you can authenticate with just one finger if you don't want to bother with two


The entire OLED screen panel vibrates to become a speaker itself!

The ambient light sensor is on the top bezel, while the proximity sensor is IN the screen as well, as shown in the below hands-on video review.


It's scheduled to be released on 6/12. Can't wait!!

Welp, that might be my next phone. Even if it doesn't have the greatest camera or greatest screen quality, it's a joy to look at.
