Should probably change the description to
"Most leaked smartphone of all time" 🤔
@tabish_gilani or best marketed one ;)
@tabish_gilani I'm almost certainly sure that was all intentional.
Pixel keeps getting better. I've been #TeamiPhone for a while, but this is making me second guess my allegiance.
Who's considering switching from iOS to Android for this? 🤔
@rrhoover I've been #TeamAndroid or more specifically #TeamPixel for a while. 🙏🏾🙌🏽
What's making you consider the switch now? Apple's announcement for the XS (+Max) a month ago was pretty big and was making me consider doing the opposite
@rrhoover Already did a while ago. Give it a try.
@rrhoover My exact thoughts every time I see the new Pixel come out.
@rrhoover yeah. Same... I feel so... conflicted. But to be fair the only reason I switched was to get in on this sweet iPhone X action but that now feels played out. I would honestly switch just for the feature where you can screen a call! Also, Project Fi is a bit of a dream and I miss having that.
@rrhoover personally I've invested in the iOS ecosystem, not just the phone; I don't think I'll ever switch to Android.
But for others who haven't, Pixel 3 seems like a great phone feature-wise. Not sure about the huge notch AND the huge chin, though. IMO it looks kinda ugly from the front.

@rrhoover Loving the screen call feature on the Pixel 3. #HealthKit and the Activity app from Apple Watch has me tied to iOS for life.
@rrhoover Stay with innovators (a.k.a Apple)
@rrhoover I already have they have an amazing phone!! I love it and there is souch to do on this phone!
@rrhoover Still the best camera but yet to become a phone xD
@rrhoover already did; never going back; it's the AI that makes it and breaks it
@rrhoover Been considering for a while. I want a phone that is fast, takes great photos and can actually work as hard as I do.
@rrhoover @maryunani I switched to iOS, now considering switching back to Android, not because of pixel though (it is just ugly) but for the OS, maybe will go for 1+1 6T or something else
@rrhoover @kura955 fair enough, I would probably have considered switching as well if not for a $400 slab of metal and glass in my wrist that would've been rendered useless if I did.
When you thought the notch couldn't get any bigger or uglier, Google went and proved everyone wrong.
I've been #teampixel for two years and #teamandroid for more than five! The Pixel is the absolute best android phone you can have! Hasn't slowed down, I think it crashed once, durable, no cracked screens and thee best pictures! iPhone users ALWAYS ask me which iPhone I have by looking at my pics - NOPE Google Pixel folks! Cannot wait to purchase the 3! Don't hesitate - just get it!
The Pixel 3, "Notch-your average Pixel phone"
I'm team Nexus 6p very old hhh already considering this over the note 9! What do you think?
I want it.
But only because my daily driver Nexus 5 (2013) is so dated already, and life has been tough to it.
@paul_danyliuk mine is almost dead, nexus 5x got bootloop, hasnt been able to repair it, so using nexus 5 and iPhone X now. Was going to switch to this one... but the notch combined with the chin (the chin doesnt bother me that much though).
But if you put iPhone X and pixel 3xl next to each other, you can immediately see how ugly its notch is. Even compared to 1+1 6T leaks

😂😂😂😂 Looks like , I might have to loan my "kidney" for buying this shit.

@joshuapinter I was joking bro 😂😂😂😂 , that's why I talked about loaning it & not selling it.
@aalpanigrahi So was I, bro. Hence the funny meme.
I find a lot of the tech circles (pixel subreddit, etc) discussing the "notch" and "chin" size on this thing, but I'd like someone to poll to see if Normies even care. Personally, any notch is the same to me no matter the size. Phones look fairly monotonous across the board and some mm of notch or chin is barely noticeable.
I'm a Pixel person due to getting immediate updates and all the latest accessories, not for the design of the phone because I'm the only one who sees that anyway...
That said, this price tag is HIGH for not that much change versus my current Pixel XL first gen. I'm likely going to wait on some after-a-week reviews from heavy usage and not trust first looks.
@thatmattgardner I could live with some ugly design, but this one is too ugly, as much as I like google this is a step back. Although I will take a look at it in the store to see if they are actually that ugly. Pixel 3 doesnt look that bad though
Why even add a notch if you are going to have a chin on the bottom? Why not even it out? I have the first pixel (still running strong), I have 3 google minis, chromecast and use a lot of google services, but what hurts every single time is the lack of creativity and the amount of compromise. To simply put... they have no balls. They look at what other people are doing and just copy and paste, sometimes add a new feature but also remove good features.
The presentation today was cringe worthy. The audience was mostly silent, nobody was impressed by anything. The speakers were boring, google Assist could have done those presentations. They showed the phone's back so many times that it was like they were embarrassed of the notch.
And they are only releasing this phone on Verizon? Is this 2010?
Samsung's phones look the most appealing this year, nice storage, nice screen, headphone jack, s-pen, great specs... what keeps me from buying a samsung? Their bloated software, their desire to force down your throat Samsung services which are crap.
I will keep my Pixel 1 for now.
@tostartafire with you on this one. I'm still enjoying my Pixel 1 and been using Nexus before and I love them. But I would love to see Google innovate more and also be more aggressive on their features. It just fails to give you a deeper story. All this 'become a superhero' crap is so 2014. My pixel should last another year for sure, probably changing to Pixel 4 next year.
Google is far from a hardware powerhouse but there is one undeniable fact, they're still an amazing software company.
once upon time google told the world how to make good phones with the nexus, now it just follows apple for some high price smartphones. Sure the features are cool, but are worth 1k?
