Hmmmmmm so between this, the pixel 2 xl (which I own ) and the pixel 4 xl...is an upgrade even good? I love pixel but I'm a bit disappointed and drifting away from the pixel and iPhone 11 pro max is not a choice with that hectic price!!! What do you guys think ?

I honestly don't get it. People get crazy for buying new phones and don't care much about specs. I own an LG G5, it has 3.5 mm Jack, SD Slot, FM Radio and infrared sensor (I can use it as a remote for almost anything), all things that this or newer phones don't have, at a fraction of the price. Since my phone is 3 years old, I am still looking for a reason to "upgrade" it to a newer one, but they're all disppointing for me. Manufacturers are offering you all the same shit at a high price! and peoople won't even notice. I have 4GB of RAM and that's Cool for me, the battery is replaceable so I do that every year, I don't know, you people go spending lots of money for a phone that won't get friends for you nor make you happy, that's up to you.

Re-watching this to decide if I just want to get a pixel 3 or if I ACTUALLY want the pixel 4. I REALLY like the finger print sensor but I like the front of the pixel 4 better and it's not like either of them have wide angle lense so 🤷‍♂️

I can't believe I say this but now I prefer the notch... Pixel 4 is uglier on the front... No double front cameras

Whose here after Pixel 4? Makes this notch look pretty in comparison

I honestly don’t get why people don’t Like bezels. I mean even if the bezel is an inch thick, as long as the screen size is good I don’t care. Meanwhile, the notch is just stupid because it cuts into the screen. I’m glad you can at least hide it

Has anybody noticed how the video titles have changed from the Pixel 1 towards the 3? Pixel 1: Best Android Smartphone 2: smart 3: smarter and notch.. Last week I sold my 2 XL to get the 1 plus cash on the side. Good investment if you ask me

Great phone, but they probably could've done without the notch. It feels as though they went after getting more screen space, therefore putting a notch.
mieguistumas Month ago
That notch reminds me of the times when you are running home to the bathroom, but you start losing the battle just when you unlock the door.

I just think of the notch as the first step towards invisible cameras built into screens, it's that annoying stage in development.

There isn't anything wrong with the notch in my opinion, I don't mind it one bit I actually kind of like it.. If the pixel line was available in at&t I'd buy one, would have bought one.. hoping the pixel 4 comes to my carrier
