Mr , 29 May 2018Why do people care so much about notch? You are getting bigger screens!
At the moment most of... moreAgree.. people really need to accept the notch.
With this, now we can agree that majority of people actually like the notch.
The pathetic notch haters may dominate the gsmarena and internet. But they are minority outside gsmarena and internet. Smartphone makers must already have conducted market research before.
Eileen88, 29 May 2018The pixel one looks nice.. hopefully its not more than 5.5 inch.. I think im gonna upgrade if... moreNope, it seem the smaller pixel have pretty big bezel, bigger than xz2c at least, causs this is just a screen protector, so the actual thing will be more
Based on the schematic drawing I'm super excited for the Pixel 3 (NOT the XL). I don't mind a bit of a a chin at all, it gives top/bottom symmetry and gives you a better place to grip the phone in landscape mode.
These numbers are garbage since I HIGHLY suspect the renderings are wrong but I might as well play. Assuming the Pixel 3 XL is still a 6" 18:9 screen (ratio checks out on the schematic) and the schematics are accurately scaled, then the Pixel 3 could have a 5.3" 16:9 screen*. The dimensions would be approx 135.4x67.1 mm (5.33x2.64 in) which is only marginally narrower than last years but a full centimeter shorter than the Pixel 2 (at 145.7x69.7 mm / 5.7x2.7 mm), or approximately the same size as the XZ2 Compact but with a larger screen.
* It does seem weird to have rounded corners on a 16:9 screen. I am wondering about that detail in particular. Hopefully it won't have them unless it actually has an 18:9 screen and the schematic is just rendered too wide. If that is the case, and assuming the height is correct the screen would be ~5.1" at 18:9 and the width reduces to 2.4". Which would be GREAT for me.
This is gonna be the first time that I will be considering the smaller Pixel over the XL version. Like they could've just improve the design of the Pixel 2 and 2 XL A LOT. I hope that this "Notch Era" dies soon.
Dual sim please. The only reason I didn't bought the previous models is the lack of dual sim capability
The pixel one looks nice.. hopefully its not more than 5.5 inch..
I think im gonna upgrade if the normal pixel is more compact than my s8. But we'll gonna see..
Cause pixel is expensive af..
Why do people care so much about notch? You are getting bigger screens!
At the moment most of the phones have top bazel with all sensors, camera and also black line on the screen with battery info, notifications etc.. since most of people using phones for social media and internet, that's a wasted screen space. With notch at least you can get same size phone with bigger screen size.
Notch or not notch still an ugly design. I can't believe a company like Google with the amount of money and resources will follow the notch trend. Come on Google be unique look at Lenovo Z5 and Vivo Apex.
I think those notch hider software tricks are just stupid, i dont care what you say, even with the black border the notch is still very much noticeable
First of all the pixel 3XL look idiotic just like how idiotic iphone x looks!
Second the normal version will sell way better imo!
After Launch of this phone, GSM Arena should start a weekly poll titled "Who wore it worse? Huawei or Google''
PS: At least some other Asian phone makers(cloners) have made the chin as small as possible.
PapaRafe, 28 May 2018After seeing htc and pixel, my last resort is LG V40Maybe same screen will be used in the LG V40. Luckily we still have the new LG V35 without notch, if you life in Korea...
Well, I hope the Pixel 3 XL has a better run than it's predecessor..
that thing had a horrible run with issues.
Sad to see it get the notch treatment though.
At least there's the normal-sized version.
That's just grand. Now we'll have apologists spamming why having a notch improves your life every time, 100% of the time.
marko97sx, 28 May 2018Google: We'll make fun of Apple because they released a phone with a notch lol Also Google:When Google makes fun of notch? Only Samsung makes fun it.
