    I have a 4 and my wife just got a 4a. Personally I'm done getting the 'full version' pixels. The 4a is great and it still has the fingerprint unlock. The face unlock in a pre-covid world was great. But now when I'm out and I have a mask on its a pain, especially when I'm trying to unlock my phone to pay for something or need to log into something but I need to do the face unlock to get into LastPass for username/password.

    No idea, that was the previous owner's, and it was gone by the time I did the house walk-through.
    You missed a spot!

    I'm jealous of how organized that garage is. My shop is a DISASTER, but I've had a lot going on recently. I had to cram lots of tools I've been keeping at my grandma's place, and I have the whole truck bed in the shop, along with 4 motorcycles (what the hell is wrong with us?), like 3 Subaru engines and an extra 7.3 PowerStroke engine, and yards and yards of cardboard I've been meaning to take to the dump, but I can't because I don't have a damn bed on my truck! :angrygirl:

    As for lighting, I hung up some of the Braun 4' LED shop lights from Harbor Freight and I love them! They put out a TON of light! My shop only had 5 60w bulbs like 12' off the ground. It was just shadow central!
    Or the @emelianenkov mod :cool:

    My motorola was on the fritz starting a couple months ago and within the passed month the battery will die randomly at like 40%. Just got a samsung s20 FE through best buy black friday sales for $400. Sprint wanted 700 and it still gets paid through the sprint bill which i thought was odd.

    The big thing that pushed me to the 5 is wireless charging. I've had that for about 5 years now and don't really want to give it up. I also like the wide camera and found it's really handy for some things, and the 4a doesn't have it. Otherwise the 4a has everything I want.

    The 5 went back to fingerprint. I think the face unlock thing was trying to solve a problem that didn't exist.

    Didn't realize the 5 went back to fingerprint, that is good! Wireless charging was better for me with my truck because I had the wireless charging pad in there, don't have one in my JL so that's not a huge feature for me. I do use a pixel stand at night to charge it that I got for free when I bought my phone as some sort of deal.

    I have a cheap stand type wireless charger on my nightstand. I tended to wear out ports on all the phones I had prior to wireless charging so I like cutting down on the unplugging and plugging in. I also like the fingerprint because I don't actually have to press the power button and I've had some phones where I wore that button out.

    Mine can get bad when I get lazy and just throw all the tools I used on the bench then don't put them away for a week!

    Mine are a combination of 3 ft LED single tube shop lights from Home Depot that I put over the bench and 4 ft double tube LED shop lights from Ocean State that I put on each side of where a vehicle would be. The bay lights are just on a breaker, I didn't bother wiring in a switch because I don't use them much. Bench lights are on a switch on the pegboard over the bench. I also have 90w equivalent BR40 LED bulbs in cans that do an okay job of getting some basic light on things--the switch for those is right next to the door to the house, so they're great if I'm just running in quickly for something. I couldn't believe that when I bought the house they just had the one florescent fixture over the bench and the garage door opener for light.

    Yeah, right on the inside of the rear shock bucket. I didn't catch it until after posting the pictures, but it's been bugging me. Not enough to get the spray equipment out again, but I know it's there.

    I like fingerprint unlock, didn't think I would. No drive for wireless charging. It's nice, but 50% of the time charging is in the truck - and it doesn't have wireless carplay. If I had wireless carplay, maybe I'd be on board.

    Get an aerosol can and coat the hell out of it. Inside that bucket is going to be a royal bitch to de-rust-ify. Just my $0.02
    Wireless charging on my iPhone 10XS Max has changed my life. It's so easy, and I'm not replacing cords seemingly every 2 weeks :laugh:

    I have some decent cords I guess, they're stronger than I expected and the ends are a bit more reinforced. I got a 6 pack for like 10 bucks on Amazon a year ago, I haven't burned through any cords at all. The truck wireless charging is medicore from what I have heard. Besides, my cases are either beefy as hell or I have cards back there.

    I used to have this case (or similar).
    https://www.amazon.com/iPhone-Pro-M...words=metal+iphone+case&qid=1605208601&sr=8-5

    These things are indestructible, BUT block the signal pretty bad. So about a week ago I went back to a wallet case. So now I have a license and credit card on the back of the phone, so it won't charge wirelessly anyway! Wallet cases have changed my life, no more wallets. But, some phones that have a wrap around screen and no bezel, screens break like it's nothing. So, I had the bolt on case for a while. Still use it for my work phone (which is the one that has the reliable screen, funny enough!)

    I did something cool yesterday! I drove my truck down to the beach to rescue my boat from my grandma's boat house. The water is typically up to the boat ramp, if not covering the bottom of it slightly. They built a new dam over the last 2 years, so they dropped the water level a TON to remove the old dam.

    I have an Anker cable, and I use a Samsung wireless charger base next to my bed. In the car, I just plug it in, but at night it is nice to just plop it on a charger.

    I had one of those 2-part rubber and aluminum cases that bolted on as well. It made the phone SUPER heavy and bulky, but I never broke it!
    :woot: Glad to hear it!

    This right here. Never sprayed my truck until this year. While installing my suspension this summer, I spent alot of time scraping flaking paint, scouring with steel wool, coating with rust reformer, and top coating many times with semi gloss black. Those rear shock buckets were really bad. When I woolwaxed a couple weeks back, this spot got alot of attention to hopefully prevent that from reoccurring.

    Why didn't you leave the boat in a structure that's designed to store boats, like a boat house for instance?
