Biggest weakness to this phone is battery life especially if using mobile data. On Wi-Fi, it will last longer but on mobile data, it is very average. The display is also not particularly bright. I need to set it to 85% using the Notification Toggle app to see anything under sunlight.
Other than those flaws, I love it. Definitely far better GPS than my LG G5 and far better reception with T-Mobile than my Essential Phone. It is quite high with SAR and there will be times it can randomly overheat especially on a hot summer day. The camera and software experience is excellent.
I especially love its in-hand feel. Far more comfortable to hold with one hand than my Essential Phone. Lighter, narrower, and more rounded sides. My LG G5 is comfortable to hold too but it's slightly taller and wider which makes the Pixel 3 my favorite to hold.
Pixel 3 is currently my 2nd favorite smartphone ever behind only my LG G5. I just prefer the G5 more because it offers removable battery, microSD slot, IR blaster, and a wide-angle camera. And also, I prefer LCD over OLED. The camera and software experience is better on the Pixel 3 but the G5 isn't that much inferior.
My Pixel 3 is my current daily driver though because my G5's GPS is unreliable. I plan to move back to the Philippines in 2021, so I plan to get the battery replaced before going back there for another 5 years. My next phone will probably another Pixel again. Maybe the Pixel 10 by 2025 if the Pixel is still around by then.
I want to use a smartphone for years and years. A minimum of 5 years. I'm not into upgrading every 2 years like before. It's a waste of time and money. It means we are caught into these OEMs' endless loop of constantly upgrading.
Just changed to Pixel 3 from iPhone SE. The camera system is really brilliant, enjoy taking photos with it. The phone size is quite comfortable to hold. The downside is the battery life. It drains super fast, for eg, it dropped from 100-95% after using for 10 mins messaging. The other con is the screen brightness, it's not bright enough.

Pixel 3: Phone was fine UNTIL it got a black smudge (like a black fingerprint) on the lower left corner. Phone was 7 months old. Google tech representative attempted to analyze the problem and could not fix, the more we attempted (over 1hour) to Â‘fixÂ’ the black smudge which now grew to the point that 1/2 the screen was now black. He (John) Â‘suggestedÂ’ I return phone to Verizon because Google could not fix / repair the problem over the phone. He (John) contacted Verizon and stated that Verizon would replace it quicker (under warranty). Verizon did indeed replace the Pixel 3 with a REFURBISHED phone, then (2-3 WEEKS later) sends me an email that Verizon will be charging my account $299.00. They, Verizon evaluated the phone and determined that I abused it! Bull! I used it, not abused it! Verizon also stated the phone will NOT be returned to me. The Google 3 warranty is a joke, Verizon evaluation practice/procedures is solely one sided! Neither Google, nor Verizon advised me about their warranty shenanigans / collusionÂ’s ...warranty replacement is a refurbished phone, $299.00 charge, broken phone wonÂ’t be returned (so I could have it evaluated by a third party). This black smudge that grows over the screen is a systemic problem with the Google Pixel 3, and Google knows it! Go on line and see for yourself. Get an Apple, Samsung, LG and DONÂ’T do business with Verizon unless you like to get Â‘You know whatÂ’ via their warranty evaluation and no return policy. VERY DISSATISFIED👎🏻. BBB, FCC & Public Service Commission should look into their warranty procedures. My opinion: Google has fallen off their pedestal, while Verizon can only look up at a pedestal from their home in the 🤬gutter! And IÂ’m a Verizon retiree.
Cuna, 04 Aug 2019I'm planning to buy one next year. Is it a good phone? Yes, it's stock Android.
U will feel different from another phone when you are using this one
while comparing Pixel 3 good light image with samsung s10+ the pixel image is comming quite blur i think is because while taking picture the camera got shake if you can fix it or re capture that so it will help us a good comparison.
Recently bought iPhone 7 Plus 128gb for $350. So far I am liking it. Is it worth upgrading to pixel 3?
Kake, 26 Jul 2019This phone is not good for businessman and game lovers. Its battery dies in half day.I agree with you guys, it is not fit with gamers. But for me it perfect,
The battery is okay I can use it a whole day, I am a slightly user.
Software and camera are the best.
