Anonymous, 25 Dec 2018Pixels are over priced like iphones, so many other good ones like samsung you can choose. Can someone tell me how much storage is already taken when activated?
DendenMushi, 23 Dec 2018triple the price of a poco f1 for oled displayYou forgot to mention Pixel's premium build quality (no cheap shitty plastic), best in business camera and stereo speakers, silky smooth pure Android experience etc etc. So the high price tag is mostly justified. Only more expensive iPhone Xs is overall better phone. Also with completely justifiable price :).

I'm using the Samsung Gear s3 and I was wondering if I would be able to use the Pixel 3 with it because it's not on Samsungs website but there's also a section that says: "Gear S3 pairs with smartphones running Android 4.4 and higher with over 1.5GB RAM, iOS 9.0 and later, and smartphones iPhone 5 and newer." And a lot of tech forums says that it possible, so it would be quite silly if it didn't work.
So please help me out. :)
Sincerely A confused Phone User.
Sorry for the bad punctuation and spelling. I'm not that good at English. :)
What is up with companies release garbage phones ??? Either they add garbage notch and huge bottom bezel, or they add both huge bezels, and no physical buttons, so the bottom 2 kilometers of the phone is absolutely useless...
Logistics experience so bad I'll never buy another physical product from google:
Nov. 28 - I order a Pixel 3 XL, paying full price, with expected deliver Dec. 8-11
Dec. 10 - I receive notification that my phone shipment is delayed, with no notice of when they *do* expect the phone to arrive
I call customer service, and a very nice person tells me it will be shipped out by tomorrow, Dec. 11
Dec. 11 - the phone has not shipped out
I call customer service again, this time another very nice person (Mena) says that it has to be handled by their shipping team, which will get in touch with me within 48 hours
Dec. 12 - Google runs a promotion selling Pixel 3 XL's for $150 off. They are discounting phones that they don't even have?
Dec. 13 - 48 hours has expired, and I have still received no contact of any kind from the mythical shipping team
I call customer service again, this time another very nice person (Mike) says that he'll prioritize to the shipping team
I have heard nothing since. Frankly I'll get an iPhone next time - I've had androids for years but the iPhone I use for work has been perfectly fine, and you actually receive the product when you order it.

roo79x, 06 Dec 2018My pixel 3 experience first up it's utterly bad! Photos are nothing to write home about oh and... moremy experience with the Pixel 3 (non XL) certainly wasn't disastrous as yours, but I still returned it. battery life is pretty shoddy, it's true. I also don't like google's half-baked gestures , and some of the design choices for the messages & contacts app are hideous. so much white and easter egg colours!
My pixel 3 experience first up it's utterly bad! Photos are nothing to write home about oh and you are locked in to using Google photos app can't open pictures or videos in a 3rd party gallery app like simple gallery pro. Anyone who says otherwise is just dumbly believing the media hype. Battery life sucks I'm a light to medium user can get half a day from it. Display goes funny colours sometimes. There is a static noise when making a call it's even worse when charging at same time the speakers in general are bad almost always have distortion. And a background static noise in every video you take. It overheats constantly! During setup, while on charge, while making a call, when you use it as a hotspot, while sending files to my PC via wifi or Bluetooth. I have a disability and can only use the phone one handed it isn't as good as they make it out to be. Messages go missing and so do photos. Can't use it properly with wireless charging unless you pay A$120 for the Google Pixel stand. I brought some in ear usb-c headphones because the ones that came with the ohone don't work for me I don't like the way they feel in my ears but the stupid phone won't let me use them because they are not compatible. The only thing this phone is good for is hitting a Google employee around the head with. I want to like this phone. I do like the no bloatware. But even the Sony Xperia XZ2 compact is a better device. I WISH I NEVER BROUGHT THIS USELESS PHONE.
Can someone please tell me does OK Google work while the screen is locked ?
This phone is a joke. Small screen big bezel, poor battery life, slow charging. The only plus is good camera.
