Looks like the Pixel 5 will be in my grubby little paws soon.  :)

I stopped by my local T-Mobile store this morning and picked up a new SIM card that supports standalone 5G. All I need now is to get a half-decent case from Amazon.

So far everything you've mentioned has worked. I picked up the double tap space bar somewhere,  and it works well too. Thanks.

I figure there's better ways to do things and consider that some things are hidden, so I will Google search for solutions. Some things I was already familiar with, and others my daughters teach me along the way. I only recently learned of the 'comma' shortcut.

I've known about the iOS mousing feature for a couple years, and have lamented that until recently it was not an option on Android. On the other hand, I've been using the 'period' shortcut on Android for years.

Here's another... when you write out a message and you need to delete the last sentence, give your phone a quick shake instead of hitting the back key. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

Last 2 keyboard tricks that I know:

 1. Double tap the shift key to lock the CAPS.
 2. Hold down a key (such as the letter e) for special characters. Example: Caf

There is a shortcut, although not as slick as the one for the period.

When typing a message, press and hold the "123" key, and then slide your finger to the comma. When you raise your finger, it will place a comma at the end of the word and immediately take you back to the alpha keyboard. BTW: This trick works for any other punctuation, number, etc.

Another useful feature (now available on Android - finally) is "mousing" your message. Just press and hold the space bar, and then move the cursor to place it exactly where you want.

Well that review was encouraging, fingers crossed. Maybe the others needed to find something to complain about.

On the iOS keyboard, quickly double tap the space bar immediately after a word to get a period.

Scuzzy; you're welcome.

This reviewer raves about the Pixel 5 speakers. I set the link to start at that point:

I've had the Google Pixel 5 for MORE than a month...

This reviewer is not alone. Others have also stated that the Pixel 5 has great stereo speakers, and that listening to phone calls (through what would be the traditional earpiece) is excellent in that you don't have to worry about how you hold the phone against your ear. I guess I'll just have to find out for myself.


EDIT: My credit card was charged the full amount for the Pixel 5 today. I hope that means that it will ship in the next day or two, as I'm ready to dump iOS.

Kind of a rock and a hard place problem.
