At least Google fixed the issue... unlike Apple

Yeah, they did, but let’s just hope that they didn’t break something else in the process, as they have been doing pretty often with the Pixel line.

I agree. Apple is notorious at breaking things that they are trying to fix. It seems like Nokia is taking cues from them.

Google did fix it, but they have been taking cues from Apple with the “fix this just to break that” scenario.
